I'd like to get to know who the bloggers I read are. That's why I list people by their names at the bottom of these link posts. It's Sarah or Ashley or Kellie, not "blog name". Some blogs are so faceless I almost think of them as magazines. Others, like Caitlin's and Alycia's and Amalie's make me feel like I'm invited over to a friend's house for some tea and crumpets or whatever you invite people over for in the USA and Denmark.

I wonder which side of the fence I fall on. Anyway, here's a bit of my life, according to instagram:

1. raspberry ale and oatmeal stout. 2. coffee on my day off. 3. coffee on my day on. 4. red stripes.

I think I've got a pretty good book line-up. I've already finished the Night Circus and am halfway through Delirium. Awesome!! I love reading so very much.

 1. Cody looked like he was naked. 2. NBD but I met an internet friend who is awesome and she gave me a glow in the dark magical butterfly tattoo. And the I drank a pineapple smoothie. Best day ever. 3. Checks. 4. Tank top and a ponytail. 5. Neighbor cat, P.J. 6. New shop window! 7. Orange flavored toothpaste. Do. Not. Try. This. 8. Sure we'll hang up your posters...heh heh. 9. What you need. 10. The art scene is not dead. 11. Tank looking extra cool. 12. Plants tied in knots.

I helped out at a vegan festival on Canada Day. Check out my sweet shirt. lol

The sun came out. And some geese hissed at us.

One time I took the long way to work and checked out some tourist stuff. 

I wait for the bus a lot. 

1. self explanatory. 2. no thank you. 3. eagle eye exam. 4. bacon on windshields. 5. funny sign on Canada Day. 6. disgusting kiss marks on the bus window. 7. Chalk writing on the wall. 8. hi 9. Tank.
