Just In Case

Just In Case
I haven’t decided yet whether I will be participating in NaBloPoMo this year, but as I was sitting here weighing the pros and cons, I got an email from myfriendisKate.  She forwarded today’s Gourmet Weekly  pointing me to a little lex-flavoured tidbit which I completely, COMPLETELY, over-looked. (and I’m blogging about it ju [...]

It’s A Banner Day

It’s A Banner Day
In celebration of successfully completing NaBloPoMo, and perhaps because I had a little free time from not posting yesterday, I decided unsweetened.ca need a little freshening up. Inspired by Junkii’s redesign of the CEOT banner (which will be up soon!), I introduce to you, unsweetened.ca‘s new banner: ,

#100 Just Write aka Someone’s In The Kitchen with Lexa
For my final NaBloPoMo post I thought it was time to share why I needed a bio.  Especially since… [drum roll please] I’ve been invited to be the Toronto correspondent for In The Kitchen, a Vancouver-based food blog published by Industrial Brand Creative.  You may remember my ill-fated brush with street meat on CBC’s Sounds L [...]

#18 Spill Everything aka yet another Xmas post
My friend stampgeek who has just recently started blogging posed the question: Thinking of the Season? Then waited for my comment.  And waited. And waited.  Then he emailed asking “what gives”. It’s my own fault, I had set him up by commenting almost immediately on all his previous posts. After leaving a comment that was act [...]

Stranded At The Craft Show

Stranded At The Craft Show
After a creepy lunch w/ Venus where we decided the quote of the day was definitely “yours is wiggly”, I met up with Minty Fresh @ Bathurst Station for a little visit to the One of a Kind show. But once we arrived and had a quick visit with the in-laws, a sore leg caused me to abandon her at the show.  Luckily she’s understan [...]

#98 Gripe
Not sure which I need more "…vent your pet peeves online and you may find that your annoyance gives your post a little punch." I get headaches.  All the time. Really bad headaches.  Incapacitating headaches.I have one now. The brightness of the screen hurts. The noise of the computer fan hurts. This [...]

One of A Kind

One of A Kind
 Quick post to fulfill my NaBloPoMo obligation (sometimes it’s hard to “have” to post rather than wanting to post.) We zipped down to One of a Kind at the CNE today to visit the in-laws and check out this year’s batch of Xmas Crafts. Many of our favourites were there: Thorpe Toys – I40 Colero Jewellery – E [...]

INFER(RED) Cup (aka #45 Ante Up)
When Gerry saw Starbucks’ Red Cup promotion this year and he turned to me and asked if Starbucks had jumped on board with Bono‘s (PRODUCT)RED™ ** Now wouldn’t that be great!  Starbucks donating 10% of every Eggnog Latte, Peppermint Mocha and Gingerbread Latte.  What the heck 10% of every Venti Soy Mocha Half Sweet [...]

Xmas Music Rocks aka #77 Show Us your B-side.
I’m not one for pushing Xmas over the November border, in fact I rarely start shopping until Dec 22. However the combination of media prattling on about the consumerism of Christmas and ers‘ recent holiday toonage post got me thinking about my own love of holiday toonage. Yes, I admit it, I LOVE the Xmas Music.  I sing along in s [...]

#68 Let Us Cheer You On aka Photojunkie’s one million giveaway
Check this out!  Photojunkie’s almost one million!  Visitors that is. The goal is to help push him over the edge before the end of the year.  [yes, you can sing the song now... Cuz he's - Close - To - The - Edge...] Sure, sure, by leaving comments or blogging about this or spreading the word like wildfire you can possibly win stuff but [...]

#97 Leave The House aka On a bus

#97 Leave The House aka On a bus
Headed home. Typing w/ my thumb. Totally squished. Have already used the line “hey, I can’t get any smaller”.Up early. Can’t sleep. iPod at home. No room to knit without poking my seat mate (and he got here first). It’s a 5 hour trip on the express bus and i’m working really hard not to think of all the coo [...]

Thanks For Commenting

Thanks For Commenting
Today's pathetic dial-in NaBloMoPo post is brought to you by Commenting - it's not just for spamming anymore. Do you ever find that somedays your comments on other people's posts are more inspired and interesting than anything you can dredge out of your brain for your own blog?  Well, today is definitely one of thos [...]

#66 Keeping Track aka Posting By Numbers
Before you read this post, I just want to point out that I am aware I am totally dialing-in this post, but it’s 11:39pm and I have a deadline. So it is what it is. Hey, at least it is. So far in the No One Cares What You Had For Lunch Series of Posts we have had: #1 If I Ruled the World – Okay, yesterday I promised that I would pa [...]

#101 Cocktail Hour

#101 Cocktail Hour
I’ve realized, in my post-wine haze, that Maggie missed a blogging idea, one that is ripe with creativity. You’ve heard of drunk dialing, haven’t you? Well let me introduce you to its Web2.0 cousin – pissed posting  (also known as bombed blogging and wrecked writing.) While you might not build a following, you’l [...]

#29 Place Yourself – Lurker’s map
I’m checking out Platial.com – a tool which allows you to built collaborative/community maps – for the possibility of offering mapped locations on the CheapEats sites. So I thought I should test it out collaboratively.  For that I need you. If you have a second, please place yourself on the Unsweetened Lurker’s map on [...]
