It’s Friday, it’s payday, and this weekend will be action-packed. I think I have 14 blog posts in my ‘drafts’ but I’m just not ready to release any of them. Instead, I’ll take the easy way out and do a photo-filled Link Fest. Everyone likes photos don’t they?

In the blog realm, Alanah asks, “does Vancouver want Sundin?” [Canucks and Beyond]

Keira is heading to the Island this weekend to do the “Ski for MS”. If you haven’t already pledged or donated to her cause, you can do so online. Also, she’s posted many photos of the “Go For Gold” run, which I have done… which I have enjoyed… and which truly made me feel like a champion. Yeah, her Mt. Washington is pretty great.

The above illustrates Valentine’s Day with the Bollwitts.

“Hollywood’s Most-Hated Website” creator and blogger Perez Hilton gets a mighty hefty law suit slapped on him this week [CBC]. “‘We’ve had trouble with a lot of bloggers but he’s the biggest, and most arrogant, and pigheaded.” Hm, maybe Perez should have read my post on attribution. “The suit alleges Hilton, born Mario Lavandeira, used 51 photographs without permission, credit or payment.”

The Jim Pattison Group (owned by local billionaire Jim Pattison aka the father of Expo 86) has bought up the Guinness World Records organization [News1130]. Little did I kow he already owned the Ripley’s franchise as well. This one time when I was in Niagara Falls, ON my friend Anne took me to a Ripley’s. That was fun but kinda freaky, believe it or not.

I just discovered the CBC’s “Recalls” page. I’m never buying anything ever again.

The Province bought up 6 more hotels in the DTES to be renovated to house the homeless. [CBC]

Honestly, I love CKNW’s news headlines. By visiting their site and seeing the latest in local news linked on the main page you really can’t tell wtf the actually news story is about. Tag lines like, “Coq to reopen Friday morning,” “Another right foot found,” “You’re under arrest! Really.” Although I think the one that got my attention this morning was, “No animals were injured in the passing of this bylaw,” which goes on to read: “If you’re planning on having a dancing monkey perform at your child’s birthday party, you won’t be able to do it in the City of Vancouver.” Dang!

Finally, I’m hosting a baby shower for my sister this weekend and I totally want to supply a “cake” made entirely of diapers.

    I can’t see Sundin playing here. A bunch of us got into this last night and agreed that the only team we could really see him playing with now is the Rangers.
    Although, if they did pick him up it would be another good reason to laugh at the Leafs.

    wow, that jimmy pattison sure is on the cutting edge eh? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Dave says:

    I can’t even tell you how happy I am to see someone else who takes issue with the ‘NW web news headlines.

    And the madness continues.. just a small sample from the past few hours:
    “Green shoes for a green budget”
    “Logging truck driver is finally in court to faces (sic) charges”

    And my personal favorite:
    “He couldn’t get away”
