Experimenting with the power of suggestion, I once cast a spell on Jim Morand. It was grade seven and I told him that yes, I was indeed a witch and with just a light touch on the shoulder I could make him itchy for the entire day. Of course after that he couldnít stop scratching, thus confirming my supernatural powers. This week Scotiabank Theatre audiences were wracked by the scare of a bed bug infestation. Like Jimís spell, the bed bugs were a hoax, but I defy anyone to watch the latest Julia Roberts confection without wriggling in their seats.

Our local public radio station is in another fundraiser. One of the giving levels is the dollar-a-day, a benefit of which is the opportunity to write your own 25-word ad spot, which they will read throughout the day, on any day of the year you choose. Most people take that opportunity to say happy birthday or happy anniversary to someone, but I've always wanted just to send in my 25 favorite words: caramel, glisten, grace, erotic, asymptote, rustle, juicy, genius, volition, bedrock, champagne, paradox, meadow, taffeta, comfort, mystical, buttery, cave, Lillian, exhilarating, tide, candle, glade, innocence, wit.

Cruising along at a good clip, driving wisely, staying alert. I was cruising on my bicycle down the narrow corridor between traffic and parked cars. It was a great day... until... WHAM! A truck door opened up in front of me. My body crushed against it. I spun around, four feet off the ground, slammed into a parked car to my right, hit the ground. Hard. My left arm screamed in pain; my chest felt as if it had collapsed. I slowly stood, checked for blood, protruding bones. Miracle: nothing serious. I decided to buy a helmet the next day.
