Tweet Tweet Canada - No More SMS!

The following was posted on the Twitter Blog regarding outgonig SMS messages in Canada:

Canadian SMS service

"Unexpected changes in our billing have forced us into a difficult situation with our Canadian SMS service. We can’t afford to support this service given our current arrangement with our providers (where costs have been doubling for the past several months.) As a result, effective today we are no longer delivering outbound SMS over our Canadian shortcode (21212).

The ability to update Twitter over SMS will still be supported over 21212. But we know that this is only part of the experience and we want to make Twitter work in the way folks want … regardless of where they live.

There is a realistic, scalable SMS solution for Canada (and the rest of the world.) We’re working on that and will post more details on the Twitter blog as we make progress."

Who's the 'Buy Nothing' dummy?

Who, honestly WHO...

Picked the biggest shopping day of the year to be 'Buy Nothing Day". It makes a mockery of the concept. How about having it on any other day, not during Christmas time so that people can actually say "Hey, I'm going to make a conscious effort to buy nothing today and make a difference." Instead, Nov.28, Black Friday is Buy Nothing Day in North America. the rest of the world gets it tomorrow, November 29, the biggest shopping day AFTER Black Friday. Like DUH?

What the eff were you thinking? To me, I think it makes the whole idea behind decreasing consumerism and purchasing crap into a big joke.

Bettykisses for Moi!!

I got something totally fabulous in the mail this week. Arianne at Bettykiss Style sent me one of her couture signature clutches. It is satin, pink, zebra AND reversible. I had seen them online but let me tell you, it is gorgeous!! I absolutely love it.

It came in a nice box and I was quite excited to open it!
Then, there was another box. It was tied up with a lovely pink ribbon.
Opening the packaging made me feel so very special!

My cute clutch is revealed!!
The little card inside says:
"Thank you for finally doing something for yourself.
You are a true Blue Betty...with Kicks and kisses, Bettykiss"
Isn't it just lovely!!There is more greatness, the holiday special price of each clutch is $20 or two for $35. Shipping is about $10 but if you are in the GTA, you can arrange to have it delivered at no extra cost.

I'm going to be taking an order and having them delivered to me. If you'd to get some Bettykiss for yourself contact through here or email me at to get in on my order if you live close.

Happy Friday!!
