As I was thinking of a way to connect on a more personal level with my readers, I thought it might be an interesting idea to start a new blog trend. The trend I'm hoping for should help to open up the communication and connect with the bloggers whose sites I enjoy reading. The "About me" section is alright, but what better way to get an idea of who I really am (other then bat-shit crazy), then to go through the pictures from my cell phone.
They sum up my likes, dislikes, fav moments, things that make me go 'hmmm' - just to name a few. Looking through the photos I take on my cell phone, remind me that I:
a) have my cell phone with me every waking moment
b) have some pretty awesome friends
c) am fascinated by basically everything
So, that's how "Meet Me" was born, and this is my first instalment. I hope other bloggers will follow suit and allow for readers to get a glimpse of the life behind the blogger...

raise you one styrofoam masterpiece.
|By now you are probably thinking, "So far I've learned is that she has a drinking problem"|
The only drinking problem I have is that I don't own one of these.
Taking pictures of everything I see is the epitome of who I am.
|I find things like this funny.|
Maybe you have kids and you're thinking "Not so much..."
Well now you know I'm sick and deranged.
|I have adorable friends.|
|This is what "GILZ" looks like in picture form.|
Now say it out loud and it will all make sense.
This is how I react to all awkward situations.
|If you are my neighbour, and your dog barks all night long -|
This is what you will find me doing.
Feeding pepperoni under the door until your dog shuts up.
|This photo was taken less then a minute away from my apartment in Surrey.|
Things like this make me want to move, and take a nap, and listen to Queen all at once.
|I still make cakes from time to time...|
and I still love every second of it.
|This is a typical ride to work for me.|
Just another glimpse at my oh so average lifestyle.
In a few quick photos, you are now basically my new best friend. I can feel the connections growing already. With the exception of
I'd like to encourage all you other bloggers to let us into your world - whether it be through photo, poetry, YouTube video or the always clever internet meme's. Whatever method you choose, I look forward to learning a little bit more about each of you and it will make me enjoy reading your blogs even more so....
Can't wait to "Meet You" too!
