Peep show

Posted by andrea tomkins in: File under crafty|Publishing/writing/career stuff

It’s Friday, and I’m feeling very squirrley… for many reasons. The usual suspects are involved here: WRITING WORK, NEW WEBSITE LAUNCH, INVOICING, PACKING, BUS STOP CHANGES, UNANSWERED EMAILS, LAUNDRY PILE, GROCERIES, YARD SALE). I am getting an eye twitch AND I’m about ready to launch myself through the roof using the power of my jittery nerves and rapidly beating pulse.

Let’s take a zen moment, shall we?

This week’s craft at Canadian Family Magazine is one in which my robot eyes bore into deep inside you like a pair of pinpoint-sharp superlasers, following you EVERYWHERE YOU GO. Like this … (please make laser sounds while you look at this photo):

I'm WATCHING YOU

Ha ha. Ok not really. You can substitute my eyes for your eyes.

Go see what the heck I’m talking about over here.

Have a great weekend!

  • binki: It's funny the way you describe yourself as anxious, with "paralyzing fear". I was at an event a year ago where you were interviewing some folks.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (16) and Sarah (14). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! 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.

If you'd like to contact me, please use this form. If you're so inclined, you can read more about me here. Thank you for visiting!
