Things That Really Are Awesome



Let’s pretend this picture isn’t as blurry as it actually is. My dad, obviously, is not the kind to hold a phone still as he’s taking a photo. Which is okay because at least he took the picture, right? Right. 

Anyways: awesome things. TSN is in town today/tomorrow as part of the Kraft 10 in 10 celebration tour. Darren Dutchyshen (@dutchysc)  is actually from town and he and @KateBeirness played a scrimmage basketball game this afternoon. All of the girls had played for the Bears…minus me. But, I still got tossed a jersey and even though I haven’t played in a solid three years and almost died because as much as the court does not look that big, yeah, run up and down a couple of times. It’s that big. I’d forgotten about that.

More awesome things: tomorrow two Rider players are going to be in town and @KaylynKyle of the CanWNT is going to be here as well!! And which I am beyond excited about. When I found out I actually did some sort of weird celebration dance thing because it is that awesome and then proceeded to share the news with my family and coworkers because excitement should always be shared. 

Things I’m Loving:

Stuff No One Told Us – Things we now know helped along with adorable cartoons. 

Dudes, Relax: The Rise of Women Does Not Mean the Fall of Men – An article written in response to a piece in September’s issue of Esquire. Thought provoking and laugh out loud funny. 

A Better Version of Yourself – Because vacation usually brings out the side of us we tend to like a little bit better. 

On Dance Floors – About how the blogging world has changed and where, exactly, we should all fit in the shifting, changing, not quite understood world. 

Cover Story: How The Times Made Olympic History – I have watched this countless times and made every member of my family sit down and watch it because dskljsadlj (Yes, I just keysmashed.) not only do I love how it was shot (even if it is a little shaky and you can see cameramen in a few shots), but because everyone is so excited about the project. And the pictures! Oh my goodness! The one of the bicycles on the track and it has more than made me renew my promise to practice and practice and practice my panning. But seriously: so beautiful and wonderful and yes, I am jealous as hell.
