After watching @grease_to and getting a lychee soda at @thebasilbox, @cherann3 and I came across a @lenovo truck with an Enhanced Reality #awakenyourinnerjedi @starwars #jedichallenges game demo inside. It was run by @planb_promotions and @melissadimarco’s TV show. I interviewed Melissa at @tiff_net and the producer was outside this truck and thought she recognized me, but wasn’t sure because I was wearing my Ernie toque. I revealed my head to show it was me and we had a nice chat in the freezing cold while Cheryl lined up. Then I filmed Cheryl lightsaber-battling a villain. At least, that’s what I assume she was doing. Also, the truck was having a contest to give away tickets for the Star Wars premier tomorrow night. Whether I win or not, I’ll have to see the movie soon. Who’s coming with me? (Last Christmas, I watched Rogue One alone while my family watched something else in another theatre in Ottawa.) 🚀 #Toronto #StarWars #lightsaber #thelastjedi #movie #scifi #virtualreality I am a: #entrepreneur #influencer #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

@cherann3 won tickets to @grease_to from the show’s @facebook page and invited me to come. I was reluctant, because I’m not really into musicals. But I try to push myself beyond my comfort zone. And I’m glad I did! The show provided some much needed Summer Lovin’ during a cold spell in Toronto and a dry spell in my love life. @dswallach’s understudy @plummerdrew was a great Danny who made me wish I had hair to grease. @janelparrish was a singing angel who, I learned afterward, played a scheming devil on @prettylittleliars. Cheryl has seen that entire TV show, and will be my consultant if Janel comes on my podcast. Grease is in Toronto til Jan 7. Everyone go see it and then let’s have a T-Birds & Pink Ladies theme party at my condo! ⚡️⚡️⚡️ #Toronto #musical #theatre #musicaltheatre #dancer #singer 🎤 I am a: #influencer #entrepreneur #feminist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

As you of course saw in my Instagram Story last night, I stopped by @secondcupqueenst to finally meet the owner I’d been messaging with since my last visit. Ready to feel lazy? Nadia (pictured centre) was a nutritionist but left that to buy two @secondcupcanada coffee shops, and, when not working at them, is in university taking bio chem, so she can start her own pharmaceutical company. Oh, and she’s 22 years old. Meanwhile, I’m (cough) slightly older (cough) and I played Scrabble on Facebook today. I think from now on, before I do anything, I should ask myself, “What would Nadia do?” Oh, bonus fact: Her parents and brother work for her. Her brother takes care of the Yonge/Charles location, dad does her accounting and mom works in the Queen/John shop. That’s mom in the background, having just returned from shopping at @zara. Nice of Nadia to give her a break. 🤣 (Should I drop off a résumé?) ☕️ #entrepreneur #biochemistry #nutritionist #nutrition #girlboss #businesswoman #ladypreneur #feminism #coffeeshop #Toronto ☕️ I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


Big thanks to @ymca_canada for their supportive message about the video I posted of my sister @dianarachlis (who has Parkinson’s and Celiac Disease) showing me her daily @ottawa_ymca workout that keeps her being a superhero.

“Josh just played SEX for 44 points!” How exciting! Although, to be honest, it wasn’t as much fun as I thought I remembered playing sex was. But it’s been so long, it’s just good to be back in the swing of things, I guess. 🤔 #sex #single #dating #scrabble #Toronto #comedy #funny I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #minimalist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


I met fellow ginger @gloriapancrazi for a quick chat yesterday at @darkhorsecafe. Having recently moved from Montreal to Toronto, she’s working on a documentary about saving whales. Meanwhile, I vlog about my attempts to wake up in the morning. She is a better person than me. Still, she’s going to do me the honour of coming over next week to be interviewed on the Celebrity Josh show! Let me know if you have any questions for her! 🐋 #Toronto #Montreal #documentary #whales #environment #podcast #celebrity I am a: #environmentalist #influencer #entrepreneur #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Nov 16: Thanks to @tiff_net for the @smwitoronto behind-the-scenes tour of TIFF Bell Lightbox. I live above the building but was unaware of the offices and projection rooms beneath me. I’m like a shamefully ignorant Phantom of the Opera.

I just had a fun adventure where I tagged @secondcupqueenst in my Instagram Story and they replied back right away and the cashier @thairjkawaii told me it’s her boss @nutrinadiaa sending the messages. A thrilling mystery! I was walking back from the Nathan Phillips Square Christmas tree lighting with my neighbor Kathleen and she wanted to warm up with a hot chocolate in @sbuxqueenjohn but I suggested @secondcupcanada because I like to support a Canadian company. (Sorry, @starbuckscanada! I still appreciate the free birthday smoothie last week!) Who knew that patriotism would lead to making great new friends? The Christmas spirit is filling my life with joy! And I’m Jewish! (Extra note: On the walk back, Kathleen noted that I see the world differently and she loves watching my observations. She says she never would’ve noticed the little chalkboard sign with the store’s Instagram username on it. Well, I’m glad technology is letting me share my little thoughts to entertain people. Years ago, when I was shooting a commercial in Miami, the director said he wished he could follow me around all day and film me giving my observations about everything. And now technology actually lets me do that. It’s an amazing time to be alive.) 🇨🇦 ☕️ #Toronto #Canada #Canadian #Christmas #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #coffeeshop #hotchocolate #vlog #smallbusiness I am a: #entrepreneur #influencer #minimalist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Nov 11: My family gave me their fortune cookie fortunes. I like the idea of being influential. I’m not sure who told the cookie that I’m organized, thought. 🍪 I was in Ottawa for my birthday weekend, and the night before my bday, my family took me for Chinese food. I didn’t need the fortune cookies to tell me I’m fortunate! (And I’m also lucky that almost everyone at the table can be tagged on Instagram. I like to think it’s my influence.) 🍀 #Ottawa #restaurant #Chinese #ChineseFood #birthday #travel #tourism #family I am: #influencer #entrepreneur #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad
