  1. Looks like you’ll be able to catch me on Tech Tuesday on the CTV News sometime between 6:45—7 PM tonight! Hope you’ll be able to catch it—if you don’t, I’ll be sure to post it here later!
  2. …and I’m in the audience for CityLine with my Mom on April 1st (which will satisfy The 2013 100 #69: Help my Mom get tickets to CityLine and the Marilyn Denis show)
  3. Clients from Hell is my new favourite website.
  4. After winning a spot in Brandgasm 101, I’m hoping to make all my design dreams come true for my site!
  5. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t so anal-retentive about metadata, or else putting up a post (or three) together about my Vegas trip wouldn’t be as painful as I know it’ll be.
  6. Ingress is my new time-suck when I’m out and about.
  7. Mixed-race kids are taking Toronto by storm! I’m not adding to the count yet, but it’s good to know that I’m in the right city to raise a mixed-race family!
  8. I’m not the biggest fan of Microsoft or Bing, but their Farecast travel cost predictor is pretty damn awesome!
  9. I finally got my Toronto Library Card last week! Now I just need to get through my existing list of stuff to read so I can actually use it.
  10. Might make an infographic based on MTV’s Annual Hottest MC List for practice. We’ll see!
