Weekly Photo Challenge (Catch Up): Broken

Another Catch Up. The theme is “broken”. I didn’t want to just take pictures of objects so I got a bit creative.

this one is fairly self explanatory.

A familiar sight in Toronto. Construction. Usually means something is broken

Weekly Photo Challenge (Catch Up): Waiting

Here’s an extra photo challenge post using a theme posted before I actually started the challenge.

Nothing says “Waiting” like rush hour traffic on the DVP.

Do you wait when the big red had says so?

And of course, waiting for the bus.

Social Media Unites to Feed The Hungry With #HoHoTO

HoHoTo

In 2008 some twitter friends decided to do something about people who couldn’t afford to eat. Through social media connections HoHoTO was created, and was a big success.

HoHoTO is a big party held each year in december to raise money and collect food donations for the Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank so people who can’t afford a Christmas (or any other holiday) dinner, can have one. Each year millions of people go to the Daily Bread Food Bank and HoHoTO is a great way for you to help out… and attend a great holiday party.

So get tweeting, blogging and networking, donate if you can, or find some other way to help out. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #HoHoTO. Lets make the world suck a little less.

Tomorrow (june 20th) is the tenth Tweetgasm, a monthly tweetup for twitter people of toronto. It takes place at the gladstone hotel usually in the melody bar at 7:30. This month the theme is “Pretty In Pink” which means that if you are wearing pink you get in free. If not you have to pay a $5 cover.

The Amazing Pocket Contents and A Screwdriver

Created by User:Fcb981

I found recently that I have an odd habit of putting most things in my pocket. Not shoplifting or stealing but stuff thats mine. Examples would be things like bus transfers, wrappers, recipts, and flyers. Little things that most people would throw out at the first possible opportunity.

This might sound like hoarding or some form of OCD but I assure you its not. I don’t keep these things for long. Only until I empty my pockets, which is usually when I’m going to wash the article of clothing. It still sounds weird doesn’t it? But I kind of find it interesting. Its a lot like getting incredibly drunk and then the next day looking at a camera you had with you and seeing all the pictures you took of things you can’t remember or cleaning your house/apartment and finding something from many years ago. You’d be surprised what things you forget.

Still sounding weird? But it makes a bit more sense though right?

Its not so great with everyday clotes that you wear for a day then wash but with things like coats which you might wear for a while or backpacks which you might use on many days for years can be full of stuff. I recently threw out an old backpack and before I did I went through all the pockets. I found an incredible amount of stuff. I found two packs of batteries each missing a battery, a barely used bottle of tylenol, a bubble gun, a bottle of bubble mixture, countless flyers and tickets from places and events I must have been to, and a phillips head screwdriver.

these things might seem a bit random but I remembered that I bought the bubble gun and bubbles for the bubble battle that was held in Toronto. I also bought the batteries so the bubble gun would work and the screwdriver was so I could install the batteries. This all bought back the memories from a great day I had a few years ago.

I know this is a bit of a rambling post but I recommend you try something like this. Go to your closet and look for an old backpack or an old coat, I’m sure you’ve all got one, and look in the pockets to see what you’ll find, you might just be surprised.
