1- Today is national cheesecake day!
2- Tom Green turns 39 today
3- Baghdad was founded today.
4- In Montevideo, Uruguay wins the first football world cup.

Claire did these again for me today…but only could come up with 4….seriously Claire, stop being so lazy. Just kidding, nothing has actually ever happened on July 30th except these 4 things.


Our latest interview is with Robert Munsch. Munsch is known and loved by many for his unique storytelling methods and his amazing children’s books. Munsch has written over 50 books, including The Paper Bag Princess, Mortimer, I love you forever and Smelly Socks
I approached Robert Munsch with 6 questions. He answered only 2, but don’t worry Bob…we will still Love you Forever (get it??). Instead of leaving his unanswered questions blank I’ve decided to answer them for him since I feel like we are very close (My mom is a super famous author too...no big deal)…so our lives are probably very similar.

1) What is your favourite 90’s sitcom?
*this is what I think he’d say.
I really liked Family Matters, I also really like cheese so I could really relate to Steve Eurkel.

2) Do you own any music by Rita MacNeil?
*this is what I think he’d say.
Are you kidding me? I love Rita MacNeil, half of my books are inspired by her music!

3) Do you have any nicknames?
*this is what I think he’d say.
Bobby, Bobster, The Munschster, Bobby M, Lloyd and Clive

4) Do you have a favorite hat? If so please describe or send us a photo of you wearing said hat
**ACTUAL ANSWER
I have a Tilley Hat and an Australian Leather hat.

5) Do you have any hidden talents? If so, please describe, or send us a video of you demonstrating said talent.
**ACTUAL ANSWER
I pick up trash while I walk my dog.

6) Do you have a favourite youtube video? If so, what?
*this is what I think he’d like.


Today we have a special celebrity guest writer: Claire. You may remember her from yesterdays on this day…it was her birthday. Claire’s cousin knows The Moffats. Kind of a big deal.

1- Today is Geddy Lee’s Birthday. He turns 57 today.
2- Today is national Thai Language Day. Strike up a conversation at your favorite thai food restaurant.
3 – Today is Cheese Sacrifice Purchase Day…whatever that may mean.

Claire says those are the only interesting things that have happened today in history. I believe her. I apologize if you were born today.


No, not the lady kind, don’t get too excited.

I don’t know how many times I’ve been doing yardwork and I just never have the right tools! Or I do, and they are all over the place! in the washroom, den, under the sink, in my car, in someone else’s car…its just madness!!
After purchasing Swiss Army Hoe, all my frustrations are gone!  I can hoe, dig, weed, water, and rake with the flip of a switch.  Weighing in at about 150 pounds, it is SO practical! I personally like to tuck it under my bed at the end of the day to prove to myself that it so so compact and useful.


So Julie Chen called me yesterday to tell me that Rachel is preggers. She has been having a hooker show-mance on big brother with Brendon, the swim coach and self proclaimed scientist.
Sources (Julie) say that she has been feeling the under the weather and her belly has gotten quite large very quickly. Julie says it probably isn’t Brendons baby since she looks as though she could be around 4-5 months.
Ohhhh girl. We will see how this unfolds in weeks to come.

These facts may not be in fact, factual.


1-Today is hamburger day.
2- Rita MacNeil is 66 years and 2 months today, today is clearly a day to celebrate!
3-Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em (yes apparently his last name is Tell ‘Em..who knew) turns 20 today
4- in 1609, Bermuda was first settled by survivors of the English ship Sea Venture en route to Virginia.
5-Today is Claire’s Birthday. She hates velvet and has a cat and a dog.
