Status Quo

This is getting sad. All these failed attempts to get back into regular blogging. I’m done with fresh starts and promises. Fact is, you’re going to get content from me when you get it. Sorry. It’s just the way it’s going to be now. Twitter has forever changed the way I blog, so I say a lot less a lot more often.

Anyway, here we are now. Some updates. Rock4TheKids was an ass-kicking awesome success. We raised $11,500 for SickKids Foundation, more than doubling our goal. Also, people had a freaking awesome time. Evidence of that can be seen here:

Here’s a clip of the winning band The Final Five who were seriously awesome:

It was such a success and so much fun that we’ll be doing it again in the fall, so stay tuned for info on that. Also, I have to do a shout out to M, Beltzner, Dawn, Tash, Chris, Timmi, Madhava, Kate, Graeme, Eric, Andrew and all the other volunteers for making everything run super smooth.

And just for fun, here’s a photo of John (the co-creator and generally awesome co-force behind Rock4TheKids) and I (taken by the wonderful M who graciously took photos at the event for me) after all was said and done:

You can even see the 15 pounds that I got as a prize for putting the event together. 🙂 No worries, though. It will come off soon enough.

Other than that goodness and the news that I am dieting again (that’s ride everyone, hide in your homes, close your shutters, cause a h-angry girl is rolling into town), not much to report on the personal front. Should anything remarkable happen, I’ll be sure to write about it. Eventually.
