Panda Hugs and Electric Cars or Why I Love WWF Canada

The PandaI love charities.

I am a fan of fundraising.

I have this cockamamie dream that one day I’ll reach the pinnacle of my career as a volunteer and become a philanthropist extraordinaire and spend the remainder of my days making people’s lives better.

It’s a lofty goal. I admit it.

Oh, but what a great story that would be.

I’ll keep dreaming and doing my part to make the world a better place one little act of kindness at a time.

 

In the meantime I am so glad there are organizations like WWF Canada making steps towards reversing climate change and keeping our planet, our one true home, safe, so that my children (and yours!) will have a home for a very, very, very long time.

Clearly, I am a fan. Yes, of the planet, of course, but also of WWF Canada. I’ve written about it here before. I’ve also written about it there.

 

On Monday, I received the latest “Panda Mail” from WWF Canada and one of the featured pieces was called “First Dates with David Miller”. This is a three part video series wherein Canadian celebrities go on a first date with former Mayor of Toronto and current WWF Canada President & CEO David Miller and chat while riding around Toronto in an EV (Electric Vehicle).

You could go ahead and let your imaginations run wild, but I think it would be best if you checked out the silliness for yourself.

But I will share one.

Enjoy!

Yes, that is Kid In The Hall, Mark McKinney.

I wonder if he tried to crush David Miller’s head.

 

So that was fun, wasn’t it?

I thought so.

But…

Now I can’t get this out of my head!

 

How *can* you deny an electric car?

 

F.R.I.D.A.Y. (Five Random Items Demonstrated And Yackety-Yakked)

I made it to Friday, but it’s very late and so I will be brief.

1. According to my kind readers there are, in fact, seven days in a week. So I will be back here tomorrow and again the next day to keep my promise.

2. The 5k I mentioned yesterday is the – wait for it – 2nd Annual Food Run.

3. I enjoy irony*.

4. I couldn’t figure out the remote** controls for the TV/DVD/AppleTV/DVR today and so currently I am watching the next Suits***.

5. The above fact is causing me extreme discomfort. *twitch twitch*

 

*I loathe ironing, however.

**I mean, really!!! Who the heck designed those teensy Apple remotes and why the heck are they clones of each other?! They are identical, save for the small fact that one controls the MacMini and one controls Apple TV so if you locate the wrong one well… Good luck, Charlie! *harumphs*

***As in, I missed one. AACK!!! This is so not okay!
