I'm STOKED, yo.

I'm participating in a group exhibition coming up at the end of September for Toronto Arts Week . I was planning to do a solo show, but I just don't think I can handle the pressure of hosting, curating and promoting a show all by myself.

Plus, the timing really blows with the TTC streetcar track "reconstruction" on my street from mid-September to mid/late-October. I don't even want to think about what driving, parking or just plain getting around will be like.


Anyway, I'm heading over to meet the other artists tonight at 7. YAY!


I just about peed myself

This was sent to me by my gay boyfriend Steven.

Dearest Steven,

You'll always be MY favourite fag.


Your favourite hag

p.s. only 37 days until Talk Like A Pirate Day!!!!



ahoy me mateys

Looks like blogging gets the rumble seat in my life right now, as are most things computer-related. I'm still getting used to my new schedule. Man it's hard when everything in your life shifts...even incrementally. I mean, the whole yard I work at is Internet and e-mail free. Every job I've held in the last 8 years has been a place I could chat, surf and talk to people throughout the day. Now, I count stuff and sort paper in alphabetical or numerical order all day. And, I'm busy from the moment I walk in, to the moment I leave. Unlike my last few jobs in the IT world, no one is sitting around looking bored. Everyone is busy and people actually like the work they do. Granted, it's not the most intellectually stimulating work, but somehow it is fulfilling. At the end of the day I can say exactly what I've completed and know that I've contributed. I haven't felt that way about work in a long time. And anyways, what I DO to make a living doesn't define WHO I AM.

Okay, time to go work out now. Surprisingly, I actually miss my work outs if they don't happen. They're definitely making a difference. In the last 6 months I've gone from a size 12 to a 10 and went from 165 to 155 pounds - thanks to those workouts AND less time spent in front of the TV and computer. YAY!
