Hull Services & #RBCAmes!

What would you do if someone gave you the resources to make a difference? Some would try to cure diseases, some would focus on developing countries, or perhaps donate it to a favourite cause.

In the case of Trevor Morgan, Vice President of New Line Skateparks, it’s giving the youth of Calgary, Alberta an outlet and safe place that can give them the positive influences they need for their futures.

The Matthew Banister Memorial Skatepark is Trevor’s way to help youth avoid the fate that befell his friend.

#100HappyDays — Day 13 — A Little #CANvsSWE Tweet!

#100HappyDays Day 13 was a screenshot of this tweet:

I made it this morning during the Canada vs. Sweden game for the Men’s Hockey gold medal game at the 2014 Winter Olympics, when the score was up 3-0 for the Canadians in the third period, making it rather clear that our boys were coming home with gold medals. Despite the nation being up earlier than they likely are on a Sunday and glued to the TV, the tweet performed better than I could’ve imagined, with 31 retweets and 12 favourites, one from none other than the head of Twitter Canada, Kirstine Stewart!

#100HappyDays — Day 13 — 2nd for Best Personal Blog in the Canadian Blog Awards

Couple that with a second-place finish among the 24 nominated in the Canadian Blog Awards’ “Best Personal Blog” category, and it’s been a pretty good day!

#100HappyDays Day 13/100 — succès!

Who needs sleep?

It’s the last day of the year and time to close up shop. Zach survived A Sponsored Life, Sarah begat new life unto the world, and you know what? It’s been a solid year.

How solid, though? These last few posts should tell the tale!

Canadian Weather: A Haiku.

Dear readers,

Allow me to share my opinion of the weather this morning in the form of a short haiku.

Stupid sleet storm pounding
Soaked my clothing to the bone
Hate you, Canada

I was only walking to the train station for 15 minutes, and my clothes are two shades of colour – darker on the front, lighter on the back. Canada? FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU!!!

Thank you,

–case p.


 

I’ve just been made aware that this morning’s haiku starts with a 6 syllable line.

As this just won’t do, I must now write an APOLOGY haiku.

Here goes:

First line, haiku sucked / Too many syllables there / Screw you, I was beat!

;D
