Is there anything finer after a long, stressful day at the office than meeting up with some girls for cocktail hour at a cozy restaurant in the city’s swankiest hood?

Yes. Getting a manicure and lusting over hot, hot sales while said chillaxing takes place.

Last night, I was invited to help celebrate the Canadian launch of Bing Shopping in Yorkville. On a scale of lame to awesome, I have ranked this event as “dope”. Here’s why:

1. First and foremost, I got a chance to catch up with some of my favourite Internetty homegirls.

As much as I love my “Twitter’s Stupid but Facebook’s cool,so let’s go creep on people we hated in highschool!” crew, I’ve noticed that their eyes tend to glaze over when I geek out over things like web stats and content management systems.

Girly girl chatter pairs every so nicely with nerdy girl chatter, don’t you think? I’m perfectly capable of dishing about my retail obsession and affinity for clean code within the same conversation. I had a hard time finding girls who share this same lean until I moved to Toronto.

I’m so glad that I did.

2. Bingtinis.

3. Pretty, pretty foodstuffs:

4. Getting briefed on the joys of massive, massive discounts by Bing Man (His name is Anthony, but I think Bing Man is cuter). I’m talking up to 85% off here. All from trusted, screened retailers who will guaranteed ship to Canada (no Hong Kong basement scams here). Click on “Cross Border” to see what I mean – and save yourself a Detroit/Buffalo run this holiday season.

Or, like me, you can shop your gourd off in Detroit and then come home and shop some more online – ya know, for all the things you weren’t able to find in the States. Like people who say “Please” and “Thankyou” – ZING! :) I kid, I kid… (I don’t kid).

Thanks again to High Road, Sarah Long and of course, The Ten Spot for my fabbbumalous fingah tips!

They told me the polish was vegan and I was like “WOAH! THAT’S AWESOME!” But later I gots to thinking… Isn’t all nail polish vegan? If this polish is vegan, what exactly the heck am I putting on my fingers the rest of the time?
