How I bought your coffee

, October 19, 2009

If you caught tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, then you know the last few minutes were basically one big Tim Hortons commercial. And that’s fine, because that’s how the product placement game is played. A couple of sitcom characters visit a Tim Horton’s franchise in Toronto, one of them makes fun of […]

Barely alive

, October 17, 2009

Do you ever have one of those lazy, unproductive days where you decide to post something on your blog just so you can say you accomplished something that day that wasn’t a Portal achievement? Because I’m pretty sure I’m having one of those right now.
