Hmm…. I seem to have some of these types of entries, no posts for days, then a comment saying I’m super busy..
Tonight after my class I had the opportunity to drive with one of Jennifer’s coworkers from Japan who is here on a business trip. (Nike employees). I don’t know why, but I found it incredibly fascinating to talk with her, trying to overcoming the language barrier.. I could have talked with her for hours, exploring different ideas about culture, watching her learn about me, and vice versa.
I’ve gotta score me a job doing something like that.. assuming I can figure out what that was, and I can get someone to pay me for doing that. (Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving my job right now.. but there was something about this, I can’t put my finger on yet)..
Anyway, stay tuned.. I took some pictures of her, her way cool DoCoMo phone (incredible screen), I’ll try to post some of them over the weekend.
Got an email from Simon today, and as I expected, I got edited out. I did find the article online over the weekend, and didn’t notice any of my comments in there.
If you’d like to read it, here’s a pdf of page 1 and page 2. You can read the article I was almost in.. heh heh heh.
The harsh realities of the newspaper business, eh?
So, I’m still super sick, so I stayed home from Entheos, and watched Extreme Makeover tonight.. freaking cold, but man, I was crying at the end of it.. are they all this sappy but fulfilling?
I’m calling the doctors tomorrow, I’m tired of being sick.
Yesterday morning I found an email in my in box from Simon Houpt, a Globe and Mail reporter, asking me if I’d be willing to chat about my TiVO. I believe he wanted to chat with me because I’m Canadian, and a lot of people in Canada don’t really understand what a DVR (digital video recorder) or TiVO is.
We had a good chat.. a few questions where on do I watch tv when I go home to Canada (my answer was I do watch some CBC for local news, but not a lot more because I don’t have my set of programs waiting for me).
I also mentioned that with TiVO, Jennifer and I are actually watching less tv, basically because we know that the programs that we like to watch are waiting for us, so we don’t worry about missing something.. the funny thing is after a few weeks, we’re like “why bother watching it, it’s old”, so we let the show drop off the bottom of the list.
Simon tells me the article might appear in Saturday’s Global And Mail, and if/when it does, he’s going to email me a pdf of the article. This presupposes that he got any useful information out of me, and decided to use it in his article.
Who says blogs aren’t powerful, eh?
PS: I spent yesterday afternoon with a high fever, shaking a lot lying in bed. I hate getting sick. I hope it stops soon.
