How to find a job and become an adult (and our inability to do so).

Once again Grown-Up Party’s resident woman-of-awesomenesss, Lizzy Karp, has passed on a series of articles that struck a chord deep in my belly. Rob Carrick from the Globe and Mail dives into the important issues facing people in their 20s and 30s. Basically: the trials and tribulations of finding a job and “becoming an adult”…. Read more »

That’s My Jam (of the week)!

Monday night I saw the totally bodacious Darwin Deez in Vancouver (I can use those kind of words here because in between songs Darwin Deez broke into choreographed 90s dances with his band – it was truly radical). And now I can’t stop listening to this song, and singing (well actually screaming) WAS THERE A … Read more »

Let’s DO THIS Canada!

I know this will not help our chances at all of getting picked for the actual race, but I’m putting it out into the universe: My brother Colin and I have applied to be on the AMAZING RACE CANADA. The video above explains why we think we are worthy of such an experience, and the… Read more »

It’s time for the word VIRAL to adapt or die.

I think the time has come to either put a moratorium on the word VIRAL, or make a definition that actually has a REAL NUMBER and parameters attached with it. Because currently, it’s a shit show.

They will be moving out of their apartment at the end of the month, and to commemorate the great times we’ve had at their pad (which we lovingly call “the west end speak easy”) they had one last… Read more »

I Just Want to Dance.

Lately I have not been “going out”. I get invited to things, but usually I choose hanging out in my comfy pants over any social activity. But I realized it’s not that I want to be a grumpy old hermit for the rest of my life, in fact it is the exact opposite: I want… Read more »

Can You Really Bring Sexy Back(pack)?

I have reached a place in my life where I need an ADULT BACKPACK. Because I walk to work for an hour each way I need something that is comfortable on my back and evenly distributes the weight, and since I bring my laptop to work I can’t just carry a small purse (seriously no… Read more »

Grown-Up Camera

I recently bought this camera, the Olympus OM-D. And what can I say, I’m in love. Modeled after the Olympus-OM1 film camera that was introduced in 1972 as Olympus’ first SLR camera, this camera has the classic look and feel, but with the complete digital full-meal-deal. And just like the Olympus OM-1 earned wide acclaim… Read more »
