"Blogging isn't journalism, it's graffiti with punctuation."

riding thru da city on my bike all day ‘cuz da filth took away my license; it doesn’t get me down & i feel ok cuz da sites dat i’m seein are priceless

this photo of me was taken in the Lavender fields in the south of France, near Avignon.

tomorrow morning (wednesday), i’m going to be a guest on CTV Canada AM around 7:50am (EST). so if you live in canada and are up that early, please tune in and let me know what you fink (for those of you who live in western canada, i heard that the show is on a time-delay out there, so it should be on at 7:50am your time too!) this week they’re having all the canadian contestants on the show, i guess to try and drum up extra votes and exposure for us. should be a lot of fun!

set your DVR’s and TIVO’s! (or VCR’s if you’re still out of the loop, as my family is…)

speaking of which, as i type this, i am only a few votes away from breaking the 1000 mark! i know it’s not much in comparison with the votes some of the other contestants have, but it’s a little milestone victory for me! so please vote for me at www.islandreefjob.com/Christine and help me get over the hump! you can vote once every 24 hours from mulitple email addresses!

and while we’re on the subject of voting . . . i had a little stroke of genius a few nights ago, and blatantly misused some social networking sites in order to drum up votes. in the process, i got singer/songwriter extraordinaire Erykah Badu to vote for me (and encourage her fans to vote) AND i got actor/singer Brent Spiner (best known as Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation) to do the same.

that gave me a healthy boost in both votes and ego!

psst! famous people have hearts….pass it on.

since the weather has been warming up my nose and toes lately, i thought i’d go for a little bike ride the other day. i had already done a muscle-mushing excercise workout that day…actually, i had done 2 that day….but i love riding my bike with my music blaring way up in my headphones and singing loudly at the top of my lungs while people waiting at bus stops stare at me oddly and sigh because they have to take the bus while i zoom by under the sun….so i figured 3 workouts wouldn’t hurt.

so i rode from my house all the way to the intersection of don mills and lawrence. i’m not going to reveal online where i live, of course, for security reasons, but for my mates who are reading this and know where i live, you know that’s quite the distance!

round trip, i was gone about an hour and a half.. and my rump was killing me afterward! but it was so worth it!

think i might do the same after my weight-lifting excercise today.

when feeling sad and down in the dumps, some people take anti-depressants. some people go to therapists. some people try to express themselves more. some people ateempt to control their emotions. others try to regulate sadness through exercise and diet. all of these are positive steps to feeling better.

but for me, when i’m feeling a bit sad, i go for a bike ride. makes me feel like a jovial school-girl again.

and i get to sing ridiculous songs at the top of my lungs, and no one can say anything about it, because i zoom by too fast for them to stop me!!

acting like an 8 year old = ruling at life.

huzzah!

  2. that’s a line from my play “The Spadina Monologues” which this blog is named after!the play was first produced in 2005 at the Alumnae Theatre’s New Ideas festival, and then later remounted as a workshop in 2007 at the Theatre Passe Muraille backspace.the line is really taken out of context…if you saw the play (and i’m trying to get it remounted again this year!) you’d understand what it meant……i guess i put it up here cuz i thought it was funny!cheers:)
