I don’t mean to scare you, but there’s something furry on your lap.

Ha! You guuuuuuys.

I was going to delete this but I might as well keep it at this point.

Also, I should have said, “this is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System…” do you remember that? :)

I don’t have audio (here at work where I do all my web surfing) but it was great to see you anyway! You look great and I remember those expressions;-)

Ah, the Emergency Broadcast System. My memory has spliced it with another sound memory.

“This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. You will know it is time to turn the page when Tinkerbell rings her bell, like this: ting-a-ling-a-ling-a-ling. Let’s begin now.”

How awesome! You know why I like this? Because it kind of lets me know you better….does that make sense? I read you posts every day and I don’t see your expressions or know the sound of your voice or your mannerisms. I love blogging and the internet. I love “knowing” people all over the place. But you miss tons when all you have are words on the screen….

It is also hard to explain your thoughts sometimes…kind of like for me right now! :)

I’ve always wondered what our dog would sound like if it, y’know…talked. Thanks for the enlightenment :) I think I have a better idea…and for the record, I’m pretty sure it involves a Bostonian accent.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
