I had about five things I wanted to blog about, and suddenly I can’t remember any of them.
I’ll just take a peek inside my camera and see if it reminds me.
Hmmm. From the “Things I Do So You Won’t Have To” file, here’s a short clip of St. Paddy’s Day at the Carleton Tavern.
Speaking of St. Paddy’s Day, GC and I went to the Go Green show at Lansdowne Park this weekend. Here are some of the highlights:1) We got to sit inside a Smart Car!
2) We saved a lost little girl who was petrified of Earth Head and who had lost her mommy.
3) We sampled some “almost organic” wine.
4) We bought Buckwheat pillows.
5) GC bought me a Bat Bag. With bats on it.
I’ve been wanting a buckwheat pillow ever since my optometrist told me he stopped getting headaches when he started using a buckwheat pillow. They’re made right here in Ottawa too, by the Perfect Pillow Company.
GC was in bed first on Saturday night, and I asked him how his new buckwheat pillow felt.
“Um, not really like a pillow,” he replied. “More like when you’re camping and you use your knapsack for a pillow.”
That didn’t sound promising. But then I crawled into bed and laid my weary head on my buckwheat pillow, and it was like my head had finally found a place to call home! I felt all the stress draining out of my neck and shoulders, and I felt my head start to really, truly, finally relax. I LOVE my buckwheat pillow. (GC’s not convinced the buckwheat pillow is for him, but he’s going to persevere for a few more days before casting judgment.)
The Go Green Show was fun (and free), but I couldn’t help but appreciate the irony of a Green show in which you end up with all kinds of glossy advertising pamphlets and free samples and STUFF.
