Three Pears, three pairs, 3 X 2=6, threesome times two, six-tom, sex-a-ton, burn calories, hunger, pear, two more, and that makes three pears.

I'm Art! I'm Art!

The wait is over, my personalized portrait (extra-personalized for this blog) by Nan Lawson is here! 

Here I am in my muse glory! I'm holding Three Pears, please refer to current web surroundings for reference. Beside is our family coat of arms, the Arneri Gurb, fit with three pears itself. Outfit: My favorite high waisted zebra print dress, suede red peep toe pumps, gold bangle, and home-made headband.

I love it, I love it, I love it! Life or Nan Lawson can imitate me all they want! 

Take a portrait, it lasts forever.

Life Imitates Art, Imitates Life.

I have forsaken you wonderful blog readers. Yes, thanks to Google Analytics I legitimately know you're out there, and am not just speaking to an online box. What isn't Legit however, is how long it's been since I've presented you with a posting about modern art. So here it is, my artonement. 

Alexa Meade's astonishingly executed, invincibly creative painted people pictures: 

Note the hair. Alexa Meade herself, the artist becomes the art. 

Natura Morta

Note: Spectators.

The only time it would have been awesome to be on the bus! 

Ok, alright, sit down, stand up, let's get this correct: He's been painted to look a part of an actual painting, he is a live human, and a picture has been taken of him that looks like a painting. Brilliant. 

It's like a game of NAME THAT ART MEDIUM!

Sun worship, the worship of the sun. 

Today is the longest day of the year, ironically it feels that way too. I'm completely exhausted from my full time plus job schedule, learning curves are steep and 6 hour long driving classes are monotonous to say the least. I'm pretty sure I'm coming down with something as well, Cold Fx is a friend.  

BUT, it's summer! My favorite season. Rejoice:

Fabulous friends at the beach.

The view from the window. I miss home. 

Because piety is paramount.

The T-dot and Other Beautiful Sights

Last week I made my first trip to Toronto and its GA. So far I'm infatuated with eastern Canada and fully intend on moving there after my degrees. Here are the sights/arguments against Calgary. 

A typical inner city neighborhood, the Houses are all unique (Goodbye carbon copy CGY suburbs) and remind me of Ireland. Also, the entire city is engulfed with forest and greenery (I hate concrete). 

The best words in the entire world, surrounded by flowers! 

First view of Lake Ontario, I could spend all day here! The Boardwalk goes on for miles! 

There are roses growing everywhere. Really made me miss my boo. 

This could be a picture from St. Stephen's Green in Dublin. <3 

This is the effing Library. It's so beautiful and makes you look smarter, win. 

I literally stopped and smelled the roses every day. 

More of the fresh water mini sea. 

The Starbucks there even has full container recycling. A huge difference from the three full garbages at my local Bucks. 

Niagara falls! The trip behind them was amazing! 

Pizza Pizza is an institution in Toronto. I'm not a huge fan but, at least their advertising and marketing is effective. 

The Bicycle Tree, Toronto Island. 

Oh, Canada! 

T-dot downtown! 

Travel, it's good for you!

 A more subdued listening entree for the contemplative palette. Ace of Base is totally soothing, shut up.

Day 98/365: When You Love Somebody, The Fruit Bats
I was feeling mushy lovely dovey today, not that far off from how I feel most days.

Day 99/365: Dearest, Buddy Holly
A prelude to the beautiful ever so dear Canadian east. AKA, I went to Toronto for a wedding.

Day 100(Triple effing digits!)/365: Swallowed in the Sea, Coldplay
This song is a poem, this song is my emotion, this song is short, this song is long, this song.

Day 101/365: Stadium Love, Metric
Ah the circle of life via Emily Haine's fucked up interpretations, I forever envy her. She would bet on nature.

Day 102/365: When You Ever Really Loved A Woman, Bryan Adams
My most beloved love song played at the first wedding I ever attended this night. Needless to say I cried like a baby. Also some guy is playing the drums in the video for his "Love" GUSH!

Day 103/365: I Saw The Sign, Ace of Base
This was obviously a very philosophical piece regarding omens.... or not. Came into my head via neuron shuffle algorithm.  Watch this solely for the hilariously 90s music video.

Day 104/365: Still, Great Lake Swimmers
An ode to the great lakes. You don't smell of sea brime, but I 'still' adore you.

15 down, 37 to go!


All of my numbering is wrong because I tweet and walk, but here it is: another week in the iTunes of moi!

Day 91/365: I'm so Fly, Lloyd Banks
Because, let's all face the truth, I am ever so fly. Also, a pilot's theme song.

Day 92/365: On Call, Kings of Leon
Made this a ring tone, brilliance I know. 

Day 93/365: I'll Be There For You, The Rembrants
Bought a lot of Friends seasons and made my first Friends montage: 

Day 94/365: Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, The Beatles
I have a playlist in my Music Listography that states: "List songs you take advice from." This is the first on the list, advice - "Life goes on." Also,  I love songs you can sing before you hear them.

Day 95/365: Where's My Money, TC
Celebrated my new found employment with this crude drum&bass song about drug deals gone array. YAY!

Day 96/365: Sunshine, Matt Costa 
One of many beloved Costa songs, he definitely looked at me during the concert(s).

Day 97/365: Momma Told Me, Crystal Waters
My momma actually didn't tell me about this song, but I love her none the less.

14 Down, 38 to go!

A my own two legs can take me there, the food is grown closer than where you travel to go skiing, LOCAL, featured eco-product/restaurant:

Source: FARM Website

The words "I knew I loved you before I met you, I think I dreamed you into life" were never more accurate. Who would have thought that within walking distance from my house (zero-emissions) lies this gem of a locally run restaurant. FARM specializes in Wine and Cheese and is almost 100% locally sourced, I think the deal is that for food they stick to Alberta, and stay within Canada & the US for alcohol and cheese.  But that's not the only feat making them eco-friendly, they also are decorated with refinished antique furniture (orgasm) and use old milk jugs as water pitchers and old porcelain tea plates & clothes pins as receipt holders. 

Being that I work at one of the most distinguished restaurants in town, I couldn't help but be critical of everything from the service, to the apparent kitchen cleanliness. So, after thorough inspection, I still give this place 10 carbon offsets out of 10! Not to mention the food was delicious: My friend and I shared a fresh spring greens salad and each had homemade (they make the cheese there) Mac N' Cheese. I also enjoyed an Aprikat ale straight from the not so far off north Edmonton ( but that and the mall is all the credit I give you!).  Lastly, the prices were (wait for it...) TOTALLY reasonable! All together I paid $26 including Tip&GST for 1/2 salad, a very filling Mac n' Cheese (even though it was a 'small' order) and a beer. Lest we forget this meal was 100% Alberta grown and made, talk about stimulating the local economy. I will definitely be going back in the next month, just wish they still had fondue week going on, although perhaps if that were the case the amount I spend there may become unreasonable. I urge you to give it a try for your next outing or lunch date, location 17th avenue and 10ST right beside Stealing House. 

My delicious, truly Albertan $26 dollar meal (take that Stampede pickles on a stick)

Ya'll going to the FARM later? It should be a very sophisticated evening, they even have chandeliers.

Day 84/365: Afraid of Everyone, The National
Because none of us have the drugs to sort it out. Had a discussion about how awesome The National is, still don't think it's anywhere near the adoration Blisslist gives them. <3

Day 85/365: Daylight, Matt & Kim
The song I put on during a road trip and several of my friends put in their iPods... I now judge them severely. 

Day 86/365: My Boys, Taken by Trees
This song goes out to my guy friends and our mutual putting up with each other. 

Day 87/365: Willow Tree, Chad Vangaalen
Beautiful spring song. Actually, all of his songs are amazingly poetic and soothing. 

Day 88/365: TiK ToK (Mass Brother's Remix), Ke$Ha
As played at the bar the night that I deemed myself and everyone else AWESOME!! Yahoo for knowing bouncers and avoiding 2 hour lines. 

Day 89/365: Breakfast (Feat. Skeleton by Kate Nash), Chiddy Bang 
Today I saw pictures of my own skeleton. Which is surprisingly very cool, much like this song. Could only find the Kate Nash version of the video, sorry. 

Day 90/365: This is the Dream of Win and Regine, Owen Pallett 
Montreal via song format, awaiting Bee's dance interpretation. 

13 down, 39 to go!

How adorably interactive and creative is this coffee cup by
Perpetual Kid
Some interior designer out there is incredibly happy and caffeinated. 
The color bar is categorized by: "Milky, Regular, Dark, Strong, and Black." 

Literally mix and match!
