5 Things To Do in Calgary for Christmas

5 Things To Do in Calgary for Christmas

1. Enjoy the chinook.

2. Leave. They say no one is from Calgary, so go visit wherever you came from, I guess? I’m going to Winnipeg.


3. Listen to people complain about how oil prices are affecting retail sales this season.

4. Visit the golf course to see the light demo with the religious undertones.

5. Shovel every damn inch of sidewalk on your property line before your neighbours call By-Law Services on your lazy ass.

Happy holidays, folks! Have a good one!

The 5 Ways to Procrastinate

Hi folks!

Long time, no post! Isn’t that they way?

I have had the busiest couple of weeks. I was mainly busy because I am terrible at organizing my time and planning my actions. I fell super behind on my school work, even though that was the number one thing I had to do on my list!

I ended up with one extension for a 20 page policy paper, an awesome Strategic Plan, an infuriating non-profit budgeting assignment, disecting a narrative therapy session, and what I feel is a poorly written journal article appraisal. Guess we’ll see in a few weeks how those all turn out.

I started thinking of all the things I was doing that were really unimportant but were pushing school work further down the list. I thought I’d share and see if you can relate. But, I must admit, this blog post has been sitting in drafts for awhile now… so I even procrastinated this blog post about procrastinating.

5 Best Ways to Procrastinate 

Organize your Spice Cupboard
Yes, I decided to do this instead of write the paper that was looming over me. Ièm not sure why I decided this was important… I guess I was tired of digging around and having things fall all over me. However, it is  mess again and in need of organizing… guess Ièll wait til I have another assignment due.

Buzzfeed Videos
These are a huge time suck since they just keep linking you to more hilarious videos.


Date
Start dating someone. You’ll want to spend all your free time with him rather than solving social problems.


Old Series on Netflix
Find an old series you love on Netflix and start watching all the seasons for the 4th or 5th time.

Re-pot all your plants
After all, you have been wanting to do this forever. You have the soil, the new pots. Might as well!

Alright folks, there you have it. Five great ways to procrastinate… now get to it! 

Musicians and Cats Being Sexy (or trying to be anyway)

Here’s a silly post as a prelude to a more serious one to come.

Men and their cats. Is there anything more sexy? Okay… there are many things more sexy. But this collection of musicians with their kitty cats still makes me feel all giddy and only some slight attraction.

jacksonThis was probably not that out of the ordinary for Michael.

mccartneyWhile doing this photo search, I came across a photo of every one of the Beatles with a cat.

morrisseyThere are so many photos of Morrissey with cats that there is an entire Tumblr devoted to it.

stewartRod Stewart. If you think he’s sexy when he’s singing, check him out naked, in bed, with a siamese cat. /Swoon

bowieAnd saving the best for last. I don’t know what or why this is happening… but I’m so glad it did.
Thanks Dave & Kitty Stardust, for all that you do.
