Simcoe Day!

It's Simcoe Day! And I didn't get to Lollapalooza. Ah well. John Graves Simcoe was the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada (now called Ontario), and he did good things like abolishing slavery here and building Yonge Street.

I document my life in so many places: here, Facebook, Flickr, MySpace, a bunch of online forums. But I don't give away much. It's strangely good, and a little bit odd.

So many things I've meant to blog about this summer, but didn't get to them. I was sooo excited for The Simpsons Movie to open. I'm a serious fan and also it was opening on my birthday! I went with friends both human and Blythe:

Check out this list of music cameos on The Simpsons. One of my favourites:

I also meant to do an Ode to Manic Panic for their 30th anniversary, it was in July. I've been using it off and on for about 13 years, and these days I've got some Manic Panic streaks in Ultra Violet. Check out the song "if you suffer from a case of hum drum hair..." Not exactly a long-lasting dye, but it comes in good colours, it's vegan and it's tradition.

The bleaching was done by my friend Tyne over faux fish, while listening to The Go Gos. Not as shockingly purple as I'd hoped:

What else? Can't remember now. But here's something fun to click around:
