I've Found my Date for Cali...

and his name is Mike!

And the Nominees Are...

After a week of receiving some amazing and hilarious entries, it has come time for me to decide who I'm going to bring with me on my blogging trip to Cali. Let me start by saying that the response from this little competition blew me away. Here I was expecting to get maybe two good entries... but alas people started coming out of the woodwork with some seriously creative stuff!

Get Your Vote On

Toronto is the place I love coming home to in-between my travels. A city thriving with art, culture and the most interesting/brilliant minds.

Which is why TODAY, is a very important day for me and all of it's residents- ELECTION DAY! As someone who works in the arts/entertainment industry, I'm a big supporter of the Arts Vote TO movement.

I know a lot of people who like to stay removed from politics, but if there is one thing you CAN do, it's exercise your right to vote. Do it for Toronto- it's the best way you can have a part in shaping this beautiful city we all love :) 

I personally love this little report card that Manifesto put together: 

Polls are open from 10 a.m.–8 p.m. and you do not need to have pre-registered or received a voter information card in order to cast a ballot. If you are an eligible elector, all you need to do is show up at your polling place with proper identification. Easy peasy.
Now go get your vote on.

Bustin out the Blades

It's that time of year again...
 time to bust out the toques, scarfs and skates here in my home and native land. The Leafs are back and so is this really fun TV show I work on called 'Battle of the Blades'. 

Last year we filmed the show at the Maple Leaf Gardens and it was so awesome to lace up and bring life to a place that had been collecting dust for ten years. 

 You could say I explored the building once or twice... and it was everything I wanted it to be and more.

This year we're shooting down in the film district and I think you should come see a live taping and visit me ;) 

When I'm not hanging out in the Motts Clamato lounge, you'll find me backstage with Kurt Browning. He's a total hoot to work with and we have such a blast together.

I used to figure skate competitively and remember when Kurt came to my hometown and did a skating workshop with us and stayed for autographs after. I found this old photo and brought it to work for Kurt to see. We laughed about this one for a while.

Totally nuts that we're working together 10 years later eh? 

Be sure to watch all the fun every Sun and Mon night at 8pm on CBC or catch up on episodes online.

Hope to see you soon!
