HoHoTO Says Goodbye

HoHoTO
[UPDATE - as of October 09, 2013 a new group of organisers have risen up to #SaveHoHoTO - or as I like to call it  HoHoTO: TNG - Dec 19,2013] 5 years ago 13 people connected on twitter and inspired a community to come together in 13 days and raise over $10,000 for the Daily Bread Food Bank.  We called it HoHoTO and we had a kick-ass party fo [...]

Leg 1 – Toronto to Kingston – #LexGoFurther – A Ford Escape
The first step of Lex Go Further – a Ford Escape was picking up the Ford Escape. Rannie was there when I got it to give me a run down on the Sync & MyFord Touch,  Hands-free Lift Gate, and specifically the Active Park Assist Feature  which I can’t imagine anyone wanting to try their own for the first time!  (But more on that [...]

Snowmagedon and the Ford Blue Party 2013
On Friday in the midst of the biggest blizzard of the year, so far, we bundled up and headed out to attend the Ford Blue Party, affectionately hashtagged #FordBlueTO, a big party hosted by Ford Canada in preparation for the upcoming Canadian Auto Show. A great group of people braved the weather to make it out and while the place wasn’t packe [...]

HoHoTO – Our 5th Year

HoHoTO – Our 5th Year
As many of you know, I am one of the founders of HoHoTO – “the party that twitter built”. It wasn’t really built by twitter, but on twitter by a group of people who didn’t really even know each other. It all started with a little tweet. A little spark of an idea, that one person took, modified and sent out to the ether. Another person [...]

More Love Hangover

More Love Hangover
So… I’ve had my coffee… (unfortunately not the kick-ass coffee I won in the raffle gift basket from RocketFuelCoffee.com because my grinder is broken…) but I digress. I’ve had my coffee. My 10am call is actually 10am Vancouver time (yay!) and now I can take a moment or two to SHOW you what HoHoTO was like.  Unfortunately not my photos since m [...]

Test The Nation Now With Lex, Kate & Rannie!
The 21st century: have you been paying attention? This century is only in its first decade and already there’s a test? I know many of you don’t watch television… but would you turn on CBC if you knew I was going to be on it?  What if you knew, for certain, that I’d be doing something other than shilling CheapEats? How about [...]

The Race to Save the Giant Locust – Nuit Blanche Toronto
I realized there is absolutely no point in writing up my own description of our Nuit Blanche experience when Rockr has captured it so brilliantly. We all pretty much agreed that this year, Toronto’s Nuit Blanche was less interesting in terms of exhibits than it was last year. I mean, come on. Three boxes — one vibrating, one vibra [...]

Surprised By The Weather

Surprised By The Weather
After a winter of very little weather, my return to Toronto was heralded with snow, lots of snow. It started with a gentle snow at the airport causing us to taxi around and delaying our deplaning.  I got home and found a living room set on the lawn, tucked into the snow as if had been an active living room for months. But there was no time to [...]

Today’s Lunch: Staff Meal

Today’s Lunch: Staff Meal
I lucked out today for lunch.  I was part of an Infest Wisely film shoot at le Petit Dejeuner. Johan invited us to join in on the staff meal and then he whipped up a great, simple pasta with beef, sausage and fresh tomatoes. My dining companions for both the staff meal and for the shoot were my ultra-swank friends Trollo and Rannie. We were [...]
