So I started my first Two Week Resolution, which is to submit a logo design a day to 99designs.com, and I've met my quota for the whole two days I've been doing it so far. It's been taking a bit more time than I thought it would, and yet today when I managed to get one submitted during the toddler's naptime I was all, sweet! I have a free evening in which to play video games or read comics or hell, go to bed early!
Then I was like, oh riiiiiigggghhhht. That blooooggggg thing.
Half of you are probably off at Blissdom anyway, but I will share with you something I spotted the other day. I was at Tim Horton's, which is Canada's answer to, say, Dunkin' Donuts. Except it's WAY more addictive because I'm fairly certain they make their coffee with butter.
Or maybe crack cocaine.
Anyway, they were featuring a donut covered in tiny red candy maple leafs. Ooooh, how patriotic! Except - wait - Canada Day isn't until July, guys. What's with the unwarranted patriotism?
(Canadians don't like to get all patriotic for no good reason. It's ostentatious.)
(It's the same reason we say "excuse me" when somebody bumps into US, okay? We're just inexplicably weird that way.)
Then I realized, oh! It must be for the Winter Olympics, which are in Vancouver soon.
Because...nothing screams "Olympic athlete" like a big fat deep fried DONUT.
Nice one, guys.
Maybe it's because they're shaped like an Olympic ring? Yeah, we'll go with that.
