First, here's the blurb for Adventures in Online Dating: After too many failed relationships, too many shots of tequila, and too many not-so-gentle nudges from her best friend, Sydney Montrose joins an online dating site in hopes of finding THE ONE. During her adventures, she crosses paths with a professional gamer who lives with his parents, a sweet and sarcastic parking enforcement officer, a flirty barista, a mystery man, a touchy-feely former felon, and a clown. Which one will she choose? Well, that's all entirely up to you!
And here's an excerpt! To give you a little set-up, Sydney's seated at the coffee shop waiting for Charlie to arrive. She's talking to a super-cute barista named Sam when the man of the hour makes his appearance....
The obnoxious sound of a horn blared through the room, interrupting all conversation. She peered around Sam and saw a terrifying flash of red. “Oh help,” she whispered.
There were only two kinds of horn-toting harassers: handsy French horn players and clowns. The red nose on the latest offender confirmed he was the latter.
Another honk of the damned horn. Closer this time. Her hands clenched into fists. When she dared to take another peek, the clown spotted her.

Well, it's most definitely been a news-worthy week here in Ottawa. I'm sure most of you have heard about the craziness that happened in our capital city. I was working on Wednesday at a school about 8 kilometres from the Parliament buildings and experienced my first lockdown. It was a very tense four hours. I'm extremely thankful that all our students remained safe and unharmed, but my heart goes out to Nathan Cirillo and his family. This country has been shaken but we haven't been broken. We're stronger now, more determined than ever to fight for our freedom to live in a world without terror and senseless violence. May we all enjoy a safe and peaceful week ahead.
