This morning I took a different approach to getting things done.  No stressing.  I’ve already checked a few things off my life list. I FINALLY mailed back my penpal @Hillzy. She wrote the first letter last year and it took me a new decade to get my act together.

She’s gonna be happy. I packed a giftbag including a creative letter and some goodies.  I also mailed a package to my new BFF at Telus who’s sending me a new phone next week! Brought headphones today so I can hocus-focus and get lots checked off my list.

There’s lots happening in my little world of rainbows & unicorns  but there’s real serious stuff happening in Haiti. I’ve seen heaps of Twitpics of disaster. I saw one this morning that was a childs head crushed between concrete and a fallen building. It was disgusting and sad. I don’t like seeing stuff like that but it’s amazing how social media has changed the way we receive information during crisis.

This photo is insane, look at ALL the houses brought to the ground.

These people really need our help. You can give $5 through SMS to the Salvation Army by texting Haiti at 45678 (Rogers, Bell, Telus). Money will go directly to the Salvation Army. Notable TV has set up a TO group for Wycelf’s YELE HAITI charity.

We’ve got a special MOD today on MuchMusic at 5pm. If you or someone you know has a connection to Haiti and might wanna be on webcam or come down for the show email me at work

Thanks & have a great day.


I can hardly believe this is my life

Last night at the Notable TV Schmooze I got a new phone, again. Boooyah! This is my THIRD phone this year – Koodo, Rogers, Bell. Thankyouverymuch. Is that Telus calling? Cause I still wanna try an iphone y’know.

Lessons learned: 1) You don’t ask you don’t get. 2) If you ever have any doubt that you can achieve if you believe, don’t ! 3) Think positive, live positive & positive things will happen to you.

I won a Samsung I7500, with the Google Android OS. Here’s the specs for all you little nerds:

  • Android 1.5 OS
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, dual-band UMTS/HSPA
  • 528 MHz Qualcomm MSM7200A CPU
  • 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive OLED touchscreen display
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 8GB internal flash memory
  • microSD slot
  • 3.5 mm stereo jack
  • Metal case, 11.9 mm thick

Party was fun. Familiar faces and a bunch of new ones. Didn’t stay too late. Food Dudes made good foods. Ater the open bar and a couple h9ours I could have used a massive sandwich. Overall, I’d call it another successful Notable Night! Thanks for the good times and new phone too 🙂

Twitter Twabes: @laurenboutette & @keriCDN

p.s. found this on my desk today!


Remember the post to all Canadian phone companies? The one saying I want a social media phone…one for someone who is super social?

What is important to me in a new unit:

– Camera with a flash that can take clear photos day or night (Twitpic)
– Keyboard that is easy to type when walking or with one hand
– Ability to Tweet/Facebook
– Multiple email accounts
– Easy internet browsing (Blog, Tumblr, Posterous)
– Cut, copy, paste
– Video Camera (12seconds)
– Wi-Fi
– Backup contacts (for people who lose/break shit)

– BBM – Blackberry Messenger
– 3G

I got my first response from Rogers and my brand new white Blackberry 9000 arrived yesterday. The catch is, I have to give it back, but I do get to try it for a while. so i’s kinda good. Already not sure the white leather back is gonna stay clean?

Chatted someone from Telus about their phones today and other inquiries are rolling in.

This is my search for the ultimate social media phone for my socialness.

Also…I accidentally retartedly touched a hot fireplace last night while filming.
