Well, there's not much to say about these photos.

My boss, Luc Levesque, is one of Ottawa's most successful businesspeople under 40 years old. The Ottawa Business Journal throws a party for these people every year, and I attended with my good friend, Dave Perez.

We had a good time, and I scored a bazillion Carver Points by taking a picture with John Baird.

I also saw a couple of people I know that now work at the OBJ, Jim and Darren. Dave broke his arm prior to this event, but you can't tell. He still blames me for that...

Enjoy, especially you, Mom.

A few years later, my friend saw the photo of me and John Baird on This Hour Has 22 Minutes. I called the producer and demanded compensation, because they hadn't asked my permission to use it and they called me a "Toronto elite" in their joke about John Baird. I got $500, but I had to split it with my ex-boyfriend Dave, who took the picture.

Hey, what's a carver point?

Carver Points
It's this we used to do at my old work where I was a broadcast news media monitor. If we saw a local celebrity (ie. politician or journalist) in real life, we'd come to work and get 'points' for each spotting.

I suppose this means
... that you're too good to be seen with the likes of us mere independent bloggers now.

You jet-setting celebrity socialite, you.
