Saturday night, Marina invited me for burgers and beers with her friend Gustavo, a gay linguistics professor. He had interesting stories about the gay dating apps like Grinder and Scruff. It’s a whole other world. I’m jealous. Marina works at the currency museum. Sounds fun – I like money. I had fun joking around with the waitresses, though they weren’t lucky enough to get a cartoon from me. And I had the Chez Lucien burger – Bacon, sauteed onions and cream cheese. Good thing I jogged along the canal earlier. 🍔 #Ottawa #restaurant #burger #beer #foodie #foodblog 🍺 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

On Saturday, my sister @dianarachlis wanted me to film her reading a speech she wrote about how she stays positive with Parkinson’s disease. I realized I’d forgotten in Toronto the clip to attach my microphone to my little microphone stand. So I improvised my taping it to an ashtray that my dad uses as a candy holder. Then I got a box of bags, and put a popcorn maker on it, and put a Leonard Cohen CD on that as a platform for my iPhone tripod. My mom says that if someone walked into the room, they wouldn’t be able to guess what I was doing with this stuff. Haha! (Afterward, I made her a Facebook page, called Diana Rachlis: Staying Positive With Parkinson’s. She’s enjoying trying it out.) 🎥 #youtube #filming #filmstudio #recordingstudio #travel #tourism #travelblog #Ottawa #Parkinsons 🎥 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Walked to @loblawson to help mom get groceries. I should move back home and be mom’s grocery assistant. Ha ha. Relax, mom! I’m just kidding!

I jogged to visit @cece_momi and met her #sharpei #dog @queen_the_sharpei, who greeted me with love and kisses. Even though Cece taught me that Shar-Peis were bred to fight. Their loose skin lets them get bit and then still turn to fight. When Queen plays with the roommate’s dog, she goes for his throat. I was about to pull off what I thought was a leaf on Queen’s eye, but Cece stopped me because those are stitches that hold up the skin so Queen can see. 🐶 #Ottawa #sharpeipuppy #dogsofinstagram #dog #puppy #dogblog #runner #travelblog 💑 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Yesterday as I jogged to @cece_momi’s apartment to say hi, I crossed a bridge with futuristic silver balls on it. Had no idea that was there. It pays to go for a jog in a new direction. You discover new things. Also, maybe the aliens will beam me up via their silver balls.

The @happygoatcoffee bathroom is all-gender. Which meant I had to join the long line-up with the women. Though there was only one toilet, anyway. So I guess the gender neutrality didn’t make a difference. On the plus side, the girl behind me was joking to me about how long the girl in the washroom was taking and asked me to put her earring back on the hook. On the negative side, I later saw her on the dance floor with a guy. 🚽 #genderneutral #transgender #bathroom #feminist #travel #tourism #coffeeshop #nightlife #Ottawa #travelblog 💑 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad
