Hey compadre, havin’ a hell of a summer over here. So many experiences and new friends I don’t know where to begin and I am sick of breathlessly saying that here but not as much as you are sick of reading it so lets just get through this.
Went paddleboarding again last week. Brought Casie along and we had a great time.
It was challenging fighting the waves around the lighthouse/bend over to Scarborough bluffs beach that water was very choppy but we got through. Rob fell in with the camera in his back pocket and now it’s toast we have to get a new one. I didn’t bail in once not bragging really cos there was a time or two I fell ON to my board and not in the water and was lucky. Casie ate it pretty good at one time. I think laughing all day was equally as good a workout as paddleboarding is for your core.
That’s Paul, me, and Bark the cat. First I thought the cat’s name was Mark, which would have been pretty great. Paul is the paddleboard addict messiah. I wanna get out as many more times before summer’s through.
I’m decent enough standing up but prefer it on my knees (minds out of the gutters now) you can go faster that way. On the way back from the beach fighting the current I figured out how to time my wave-descent with the motion of the
ocean lake ontario and felt pretty pleased with myself.
Video of the first time we went paddleboarding in case you missed it only because I am too time-constricted to blog the pics and this video has ‘em all. Just fast forward to me in the marina.
After paddleboarding, I cleaned up my act a little and headed over to Sam’s (my book agent) to discuss said book and meet some of his other writers too. Vicki Hogarth was there. She’s a very famous (ex-addict, now sober) writer who recently shaved her head because of hair extensions gone wrong her article about it is published in Flare magazine.
Vicki is an impressive bundle of energy and it was Sam’s dream to have us meet and as we shared our respective war stories throughout the evening he’d be like, SEE!? SEE! You guys together I KNEW IT etc.
To finish the sexy book I’ve been working on will take too long we think and we also think that I am hilarious so it will be a lot easier and natural to make a funny book so the direction has been changed to being funny AF in literature and you have social media to blame. Only because I am so immersed in it again it just makes sense to fine-tune it, make a talk, be a talker who knows. I got through 40 pages of Bossypants (Tina Fey) yesterday despite a car alarm outside testing my rage.
Sam’s place is a writer’s playground.
Then on Friday your busy little buddy went to the Rogers Cup to see Serena Williams and she won but now I see that she has been disqualified so wtf is up with that?
I captured her famous victory wave.
Lounge lizard. Glad I went with the pink dress. I’m going shopping today I need some new duds. Bet there’s end of summer sales everywhere.
Wednesday we had a meeting up on high in a fancy tall building.
I took a lot of great shots. It is my plan/wish to do a dedicated Toronto architecture various skyline photos blog post soon with pictures from my camera. Way better quality. You’ll see. You’ll ALL see. Yes you will.
Everyone helped me select my nails and toe polish. It confused me a bit more to pool the crowd though it was fun to gab with ya about it.
Farmer’s market bounty. Isn’t food beautiful. Footage (pics) of my trip to the market will be on my new site once we launch it.
A struggleplate I posted as a joke but got a lot of love I was like wtf you guys are gross. People surprise me everyday, you just never know what the people want and turns out it’s garbage plate art.
This reminds me must put air in my tires. Finally brought a bike to the city to use.
And that would be my sweet bod. I better stop snacking on bacon I’m due for a boat cruise today.
The sun came out a day after a horrid weather colder snap in Toronto and all was well again.
Gonna wrap this non-post up so I can get my errands done and take advantage of REAL LIFE.
Check ya later.
Last Friday we had a meeting hang with these guys too. I don’t even know why I begin talking about these things I have no time to finish. Like I said, busy summer. Til next time.
