Mother of All Mavens

A whole lot o' nothing. And then some…

World Cup of Coffee

I found the whole thing too car dealership-ish for my liking. In fact last time I had my oil changed I think I used a Tassimo- I just didn’t know it yet. My man fell for it from the start. It was techy, it was easy, it was tasty. Sold!

Oops I Did It Again

I of course am mortified. Not only because I caused my child pain, but because these little nasties happened on my watch!!!

Other Fish in the Sea

Torontonians love a good patio. And the more they make you feel like you’re anyplace but Toronto, the better. But this place was in need of… something: a cleaning, a paint job, a sponge-down… Anything. The waiter arrived. He, like the patio, was a bit dim…

Sponsorship Scandal

I always succumb to the old fashioned sponsorship request. Biking for breast cancer? I’ll give. Dance-off for diabetes? Sign me up. Golfing for gout? Here’s a twenty.
