Osler Library

Finally I have my battery charger for my camera! Without it, all my fab photos were stuck on my dead camera for about a month, and also - I've got a new camera now as well! I'm super excited to use it, but unfortunately I've got to wait until after the exam/final period to use it. I've got way too much work to do at the moment.

But anyways, please enjoy the following pictures from Redpath Museum Club's trip to the Osler Library - these are my fave of the bunch but if you want to see more, check out the facebook page.

Absurdity in the Media

Lately, I've been reading through articles online, and have found myself thinking “Really? This is news?” or on the opposite side of the spectrum “this is so ridiculous it can't be true!” So I thought I would share some of the most absurd articles I have found over the course of this past week. I've taken one or two of my favourite sentences out of each of these articles and included them here for your reading pleasure.

(If you are interested in reading the full article, I have included the links under the respective quotes- and the photos that accompany each one, I found through deviantart.com)



An Australian man on Monday said he was "a bit silly" to live in a shop window with hundreds of poisonous spiders for three weeks for charity, but was confident he would not be bitten. Le Souef, who completed a similar challenge about 30 years ago by living in a cage with spiders, said he would spend his time cutting opals and writing his memoirs.”



"Wine experts Wednesday popped the corks of two bottles of champagne recently salvaged from the bottom of the Baltic Sea, where they had lain in a sunken ship for nearly 200 years."Bottles kept at the bottom of the sea are better kept than in the finest wine cellars," one of the world's foremost champagne experts, Richard Juhlin, told reporters."

A cat's delicate lapping does not scoop up water but uses inertia to create kind of a backward waterfall, U.S. researchers reported on Thursday.”

The president and CEO of Alberta Health Services apologized on Saturday for refusing to answer reporters' questions because he was eating a cookie.”

Halloween Memories

Yes, Halloween is over, way over, but that doesn't mean we have to stop celebrating! I managed to get some pretty awesome photographs of a couple of my friends the other night. 

These two just cannot not model, and they really are the cutest/scariest couple out there. 

Check out the best from the night.
