Shoes on a roof!
(I realize that this is slightly less exciting than this stuff on this other roof.)
Here is fluorescent lighting, an orange door, a video camera, a fan, walls, and ceiling tiles. Of these things, I like fluorescent lighting the least. The orange door is a nice one! If you’re in a room and you see an object like that capsule-shaped one, it means someone might be watching you.
This is a photo of the most delicious apple I’ve eaten all year. It’s called an Opal Apple and it’s a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Topaz. If you see this apple, don’t walk by without picking it up, and don’t just pick it up, pick it up and eat it too! It’s a good apple. I don’t lie when it comes to topics such as fruit. Last year when I found a Jazz Apple I was mostly excited because of its “jazz” aspect and I liked the apple even though it didn’t taste like Unsquare Dance. Anyhow, this Opal Apple is the apple you should try.
My correspondence with Steven Spielberg has been covered on Playboy’s website, The Smoking Jacket, as part of their post about bicycle letters. It turns out I’m not the only one who has left a letter on a bicycle! Check out what they wrote here.
Two of my favourite things are shapes and colours. The shapes and colours seen here can be found in St. George subway station in the wonderful city of Toronto.
Here’s a tegu on Bloor Street. It’s from South America. The man with the lizard told me to check out MacGyver the Tegu on YouTube, so I did.

Remember how Steven Spielberg wrote me a letter last year? That was a highlight of 2012! At first I didn’t think it was the writer/producer/director who wrote the letter. The maybe-it-really-is-Spielberg consideration developed after talking to my brother and hearing him say, “Well, Shari, you just never know.” That’s when I thought, Okay, so maybe Steven Spielberg really rides a bike that has a Steven Spielberg label on it, and maybe Steven Spielberg is spending more than just a few weeks in Toronto, and maybe that blue Raleigh isn’t too tall for Spielberg who’s only 5’7.5”. After a few hours of these Steven Spielberg thoughts, I decided that the letter could not actually be a letter written by the writer/producer/director. I thought it was too farfetched of an idea. Regardless, I wrote him many more letters and I hoped that I would receive additional replies, but I didn’t.
Anyhow, here’s the latest on the Spielberg story:
Winds could reach gusts of 60 km/h.
Remember how I wrote about Little Brother Magazine before? You don’t? Okay. Well, Little Brother is a gem of a literary magazine out of Toronto, and it’s edited by supertalented Emily Keeler. The second issue of the magazine (the jokes issue!) comes out on May 1, and it will be full of lots of goodies, including a funny little list I’ve put together. All of the latest magazine details are HERE. I suggest that you sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss out on any important LB-related stuff. Also, subscribe to the mag. You won’t regret it.
Note #1: If you have not read the book, please read on. This review will not spoil much.
Note #2: The review of Part One is here. The review of Part Two is here. The review of Part Three is here. The review of Part Four is here.
I finished reading Infinite Jest! WOW, this book sure is a book. I wouldn’t have been able to get through the book if I hadn’t sliced it apart. Things I liked about Part Five (pages to 809 to 981) include the NASA glass, Good-Looking Men in Small Clever Rooms that Utilize Every Centimeter of Available Space With Mind-Boggling Efficiency, and an inverted tumbler. Things I liked less about this section include a cold window, Accomplice!, and urine. After finishing the book I went back to the beginning and read the first seventeen pages. That was helpful. It would be interesting to read the whole thing again. I’d like to do that. Maybe sometime. Someday. Not yet. I was going to tape the book back together but I’ve decided to leave it in pieces just in case I decide to go through it again. Yes, I suggest that you read Infinite Jest but make sure to take it apart before getting started. I’d never torn a book apart before, but I won’t hesitate doing it again.
