Here's the article!

Even though I vented to Mike for half an hour about wallets, I've only really got one sentence in the article. But I'm not bitter at all. Because what a sentence it is:

Josh Rachlis, 33, has tried going out with bills, a bank card and a credit card in an elastic band, but he's still attached to his wallet. "You can't make a purchase without an Air Miles card," he says. "And there's coupons. It's all useful."

But to hear women tell it, Rachlis's instinct to dump the lump is bang on.

I'm in Saturday's (TODAY'S) Globe & Mail!

Check the Style section in The Globe & Mail today, Saturday, Dec. 24th. Mike Miner has an article about people who hate their wallets. I am one of the people quoted. I can't tell you anymore because I don't want to spoil the suspense. And also because I haven't seen the article.

I'm gonna be the voice in a Rogers radio spot!

The ad is just me and some rockin' background music. Which means that all the weight of the Rogers empire will be resting entirely on my broad, muscular shoulders. This is a Boxing Week Sale spot. So you won't hear it until after Christmas. Which means that I have inside information about some fantastic deals soon to come from Rogers. Which I can't tell you about now, obviously. But trust me, they're going to be great deals. And I want you to take full advantage of them so Rogers will think the ad worked really well and they'll make me the new official voice for Rogers. And when that happens, I promise to use my power for good. And for picking up chicks. But mostly for good.

I'm in England!

Which isn't of the high calibre of news you're used to seeing in this blog, but I thought I'd share it anyway. In case you were looking for me. Or you knew someone who lives in Bristol or London who could show me where the fun places to go are. Not that anywhere I go isn't fun. I'm a party of one.
I just thank god that I payed attention in English class, because that's what everyone speaks here. It's crazy.
Oh, and people don't idle as much here. It's sweet. Our cabbie even turned off his engine when he got out to help us with our bags. Maybe it's the fact that gas costs twice as much. Let's keep our fingers crossed for higher gas prices in Canada. And don't complain. Get a Toyota Prius and you won't care.
