After a long hiatus (since the day Beijing Olympics started) we have TV again.
We didn't really want it. We didn't really need it. But with the upgrade to Fibe for our internet service and no change to our phone, we are getting it for $-60/month. (less a $15 setup fee). Yes, we are saving sixty bucks a month by getting TV again.
A couple of months ago there was a flurry of activity looking for someone “like a Canadian Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives“ for casting a Food Network Canada show. At the time a number of people ask me if I knew anyone.
I offered my suggestions, all the while thinking “ME, I’d be perfect!!!!” but not [...]
Did I mention that my friend Rosemary Rowe, of Creampuff Revolution fame, did a shoot at our apartment for her new series Seeking Simone?

The best interview I’ve seen in months. Possibly years! I still don’t want to see the movie, but I’d have Mr. Jackson over for drinks any day of the week!

After Kate pointed out that it was possible he was reporting from her fridge, I set up my camera with an LED and a motion detector.
Watch out… he might be in your fridge next.
Please, please, please tell me someone else saw that Alien news report last night on the plight of the poor pickle imprisoned in glass within the dark, cold isolation of the fridge.
I hope this is a series, and that whatever genius thought of it gets much credit… though I couldn’t find any mention of it on technorati.

Yes, in the midst of all this craziness, Season 5 of the Apprentice launched last night. When I checked my email this morning I already had over 8000 ApprenticeBlog readers, including one asking why I hadn’t published my opinions of the first episode… it had been 12 hours already and he was waiting.
