Friday, November 4


I stayed up a little later than I should have last night.  A friend was over to play guitar with Mr. Lina, they lost track of time and I started laundry a little later than I should have.  Net-net, it's been a slow morning.  At least I'm working in an office closest to home so leaving late wasn't a problem.

That said, I've felt like I'm in a cloud today and two pregnancy announcements is not helping me find my work mojo.  Both are having their second kid and I've been trying longer than when they had their first.  One of them didn't even know her husband when I had my first IVF.  I am happy for them, they are both great women and I'm sure they are great moms, but it sucks at the same time.

But I am going to shake that off and do some actual work once I hit post, that's the deal with myself.  Sulk time is on pause until the cider/wine appears at home.

We will be hosting Coco Love Alcorn at the end of the month so we're starting to do some promotion for her.  We saw her at Summerfolk a couple of years ago, her CD Play is great, but I was looking for some video footage to share.  I have to warn you, this song has become a bit addictive, I've listened to it 5 times in 2 days, I have had it stuck in my head for hours.  My first email to Mr. Lina today was "I like boys."  I don't know how geeky the men in your life are, but Coco is going to be a big hit amongst our friends.  As Mr. Lina said in his promotion, "she's one of us".  I bring you the folk-rap (never thought you'd hear that did you?) styling of Coco Love Alcorn...  "Intellectual Boys"


  1. LMAO! That song is awesome... I just sent it on to my favourite intellectual boy.

    Sorry to hear about your excessively fertile colleagues :P. Hopefully the cider or wine will do its work, sooner rather than later...

  2. Coco is going to be great. She has lived in many places across Canada, Owen Sound is home for the moment.

    Mr. Lina cracked open a cider the second I walked in the door. It was very tasty. As was the second one. The third one I was less sure of than Mr. Lina was, he's quite the enabler. :)

  3. I love that song! I was actually singing it earlier, while cleaning out the cat box, which got me some really strange looks from the cats. I like boys....intellectual boys...of course, I can't sing.

    There's a song on Youtube by Garfunkel and Oates called "Pregnant Women are Smug." Might make you feel a little better? Assuming the cider didn't do the trick...

  4. HAAAAAHAHHAAAAA!!! I'm listening to that a second time now and I've already posted it in a TTC community I check in with from time to time.

    I have been singing that song off and on since I heard it. I warned you it's catchy.
