What Are The Chances It Was The Same Bill Carroll

By Office Space Toronto In standard12th January, 2011

Yesterday I was getting a coffee in the kitchen at my downtown Toronto office space when Tim (the guy in the office next to me) started talking to me about some guy he had heard on the radio.  He had just returned from Los Angeles for a conference with other branch office mangers. While in

By Office Space Toronto In standard7th January, 2011

A seemingly homeless man who has been flooded with job offers after an online video went viral. The video featured his smooth announcing voice.

Happy New Year 2011

By Office Space Toronto In standard1st January, 2011

2011 is going to be a great year! With New Years eve falling on a Friday Night and New Years day is a Saturday, my usual Saturday rituals are a little mixed up. Normally on a Saturday, I can be found wondering through St. Lawrence Market. I park my car at my downtown Toronto office

Wow is 2010 is over already!

By Office Space Toronto In standard30th December, 2010

As I was working in my Toronto private offices the past few days, I noticed that it was much quieter than most weeks. I guess that some people had taken the time between Christmas and New Years as a vacation. It was then that I realized that 2010 is coming to a close. While I

Where was our White Christmas?

By Office Space Toronto In standard26th December, 2010

While there was snow on the ground, we sorta had a white Christmas. A true white Christmas would have been if snow had fallen Christmas eve.

A few were still stirring, but most were out shopping for their spouse.  Ok I took some poetic license and tried to bring some holiday cheer to this blog. I myself was shopping today, when I realized that I had one of

My Home Internet Was Down Again

By Office Space Toronto In standard21st December, 2010

Every once in awhile, but more frequently lately, my home Internet connection has had some problems. The problems are not with my home network, but with my ISP. When my home internet connection is working, it is amazing that I can work from home and even remotely on my computer at my office space Toronto.

Christmas is Just Under 2 Weeks Away

By Office Space Toronto In standard16th December, 2010

This has been an interesting December for me, some good, some not so good and a few disappointments.  I guess I should start off with the good things first. I had ordered a new camera using my Airmiles and the checkout process said that it would be shipped in four weeks time, then my new waterproof and shockproof

Audition for a horror film

By Office Space Toronto In standard13th December, 2010

I enjoy acting and I do it for the fun of it, not for fame or the money. I like to make my real income from my web development and photography work. Acting in TV and film roles gives me an outlet, a way of expressing myself and becoming someone else for the moments that
