Oh my goodness, what a day this has been! I’m very happy/proud to say that a talk from TEDxYYC was the talk of the day on TED.com – Ben Cameron, from the Doris Duke Foundation talking about how arts currently faces a crisis of relevancy. I’m biased, but if you haven’t already, I think you should watch it right now. Other than that, here’s this week in a nutshell:

5. I realize that on the Internet, if you look closely enough, everyone is crazy. I’m sincerely hoping this isn’t a reflection of society’s overall sanity, but rather just reinforces the idea that everyone has moments.  

4. It turns out, I am really good at Scrabble. I thought I was, but then Dr Cuddles beat me…for approximately an entire year. I’ve got my game back. Hell yes I’ve got my game back.

3. I watched Kick Ass. That wasn’t what I expected. I expected something between Juno and SuperBad, only with costumes. Holy bloody violence Batman. Also, Nicolas Cage is possibly the worst actor I’ve ever seen. I don’t understand how he can be a part of La Famiglia Coppola. 

2. The people of Columbus are crazy about football. College football, to be exact. It’s weird, yet cool at the same time. It’s like the entire city goes into drink-together-eat-chocolatey-peanut-buttery-thingies-together mode. You can’t complain. 

1. Today, I woke up to a gazillion emails all being super helpful and lovely. Holy does this reinforce that I love what I do. Also, the TED.com thing happened, I booked a flight home for one of my best friend’s birthday, my oldest and dearest friend posted pictures of her beautiful new baby boy, Dr Cuddles made me an americano and gluten free cornmeal muffins for breakfast and then tolerated looking at dresses with me. He’s in the kitchen right now making ceviche and homemade tortilllas with no shirt on. I win at life.
