Influenster Anyone?

I recently signed on to an online community called Influenster, a “place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences”. The more active members receive promos and deals from brands and then share their thoughts on the products online. Participating in certain activities gains you speciality badges and ups your numerical score. For example, I have badges for beauty, food, fashion, pop culture, and sweets. Each category has its own separate score relative to my participation in each heading. Fun and addictive.

Occasionally, boxes of samples called VoxBoxes are sent to qualifying members. I haven’t received one yet, but I’ll keep plugging away.

PSST… I have a few invites. Anyone loud and opinionated is welcome, just leave a message.


Another Bear Misbehaving

Bear pulls corpse from car near Kamloops –  News – MSN CA.

A bear pulled a corpse from a car near Kamloops, BC. He had a snack and then buried it, as black bears do. A hunter discovered the body and contacted the RCMP. In the meantime, the bear moved the body and buried it at a new location just to keep everyone awake. The RCMP found drugs and alcohol within the vehicle, and they believe the man was dead before the bear hauled him out of the car. Apparently it’s going to be one of those years wildlife-wise.

A Pretty Dress with an Unpretty News Update Link

Ric Rac Dress in Clay | Pinup Girl Clothing.

While the photo is underwhelming for me, the dress luckily stands out for me. Summer hasn’t started here yet and I’m desperate for some heat on my skin. This one reminded me of hot muggy days in the office, it seems so far away I keep reaching for fashion and shoes that are heat-friendly. The Ric Rac Dress in Clay is on Pinup Girl for $92 US in sizes Extra-Small to Extra-Large. Shipping is a whopping and unreasonable $39.92 US to Canada. I hope it’s cheaper for American shoppers.

Yesterday day I posted a news story in its early stages. The emerging story is disturbing and graphic. For those who are curious about the developing gong show and have a strong stomach, here’s a MSN news story reposted from The Canadian Press. I’m not going there blog-wise and I’m dropping this story at this point.

Severed foot sent to Tory HQ in bloody box –  News – MSN CA.

Yikes. An unfortunate receptionist opened up a blood soaked box (should’ve been her first clue) and found a severed foot. This receptionist works at the Conservative Party Headquarters in Ottawa, blocks from Parliament Hill. Security is evidently a bit lacking, perhaps because of a sense of security. Definitely not something I hear of every day.

B.C. man fined $6,000 for feeding ‘pot bears’ –  News – MSN CA.

Seriously. A man was feeding over two dozen black bears to protect and guard his marijuana grow operation. He treated them like friendly pets and fed them over $200 a week in dog food. When the next summer after his arrest had ended, 17 bears in the Christina Lake area had to be destroyed due to aggressive and familiar behaviour. It’s not really known for sure how many of these bears are the pot bears, B.C. conservation officers suspect many of them were. Bears protecting pot… only in BC.

Bear drags Winnipeg man from camp outhouse

Bear drags Winnipeg man from camp outhouse – Thunder Bay – CBC News.

As I say goodbye to my husband and son as they head out to camp for the Minerals North Conference, I am reminding them to close the outhouse door! On a more serious note, he’s lucky his friend was paying attention and armed or he would be dead right now.

I started my day off with a bang today, dropping my Iphone into a public toilet (luckily an unused one). Unluckily, it seems to have fried it. It was at 9 am and I was just beginning my day at a conference. It’s now 10:30 pm and I just got back into my hotel room. Tomorrow is another full day at the conference and Monday is Victoria Day, which is a stat holiday when the Bell Mobility stores are closed. Tuesday, I will be back in sticksville with very little options. Crap. It’s also my own fault, I keep my phone in my back pocket where it has fallen out a hundred times IN THE BATHROOM! I hate it when I know better and still screw up.
