you can just feel the love...Well, I'm in a great mood. I just showered up after a full day of snowboarding in the sun at Cypress with Rob (read on for link to masey).
Now that I'm done rubbing it in, I'll tell those of you NOT from Vancouver why I'm so "chuffed" as Rob would say. I came home to this delightful post from Mack at Beyond Madison Avenue. He's just saying thank you to some people who enjoy his blog, and leave comments. ("Brilliant!" I thought.) I began to think of you, dear readers and those of you that have helped make all of this possible. It made me smile to think that people return here time and time again to read my ramblings. Welcome and thank you, all.
Also, a city-wide white guy high five to the great Ryan Ashton, and a nod to Justin (who I have never met. Hi, Justin.) who have bestowed upon me the highest blogger honour, and added me to their blogrolls. Gentlemen, a-thank-you.
I can hear the band wanting to play me off the stage, so I'll quickly thank my wife in true celebrity awards show fashion, in her honour.
Now. For those of you still with me, here's what you've been waiting for: My pick for best marketing idea I've seen since magazines on water bottles: A whole nation, wearing their world-famous casual attitude on its sleeve, and inviting the world to join their conversation.
I point you now to the Aussie himself, with a post about how Australia is betting big that cussing, drinking and golfing in their tourism ads will see a boon in the industry. Great spot, and not a bad bikini, either.
