Bye-bye Target Canada

Oh Tar-jay. We hardly got to know ye. I will miss your cute housewares and inexplicably empty store shelves.

These five (former) Target Canada employees took it upon themselves to host a last call by filming a fitting rendition of Semisonic’s “Closing Time” while wheeling around their barren workplace. Hopefully these guys can find a new gig hosting karaoke night at the local pub. I’ll even buy them a pint.

Getting Organized: Hook me up

Ignore my messy room in the reflection :P

Ignore my messy room in the reflection 😛

Making the most of the space I have in my apartment is of utmost importance. I tend to be a packrat and have a lot of clutter. Mail and flyers build up on the table, dirty clothes on the floor and so on. But I like my clutter to be organized. Odd, I know, but there is a method to my madness. I really do know where everything is because it’s organized chaos.

Our Love is as Tall as the Calgary Tower

I’ve been a fan of local folk faves Woodpigeon for a while now, but had never seen this music video before. The charming and whimsical animations are a perfect match with this gentle love song. Plus the title of the song rocks. Sadly, the Calgary Tower does not make an appearance.

I really like you too Carly Rae Jepsen

This song doesn’t match the phenom of “Call Me Maybe” but should definitely keep Ms. Jepsen out of the one-hit wonder club. Plus I really really really really like Tom Hanks! I’m rooting for you Carly Rae.

Game Night Date Night

Date night

Coming up with date night ideas can be tricky at times, but a tried-and-true Calgary option is going to the hockey game. It’s fun for both boys and girls plus there’s beer involved. That’s make it a win already (and a bonus if the home team can do the same on ice).  I recently took in a Calgary Flames game with my boyfriend J. While it’s unfortunate that we don’t root for the same team (He’s a Leafs fan. I know, I know.) it has become a tradition for us to attend the annual Toronto-Calgary contest and cheer on our View this Post

Classic Rotisserie at Notable

One of the things I love about Notable is that the menu is always offering up new eats that I haven’t tried there. This is their aromatic-rubbed natural “quarter” chicken that’s all parts delicious and yummy. The housemade apple vinaigrette gave an extra kick to the side salad.
