Closer to the heart

Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?

If any of you are still out there…

Recently, the state of Virginia had to pull it’s tourism add campaign, because it turned out that making the shape of a heart with two hands (connecting thumbs and fingertips) is a gang symbol. I’m not sure which is stranger; the fact that the ad campaign designers didn’t do enough research, or why a gang would feel the need to use a heart shaped hand sign?

In other news, some interesting advice on how to “hack” Starbucks by creating cheaper versions of your favourite drink. A friend of mine used to make herself a cheap ice-cap (or latte or frap or whatever the kids are calling it these days) by ordering an espresso in a large glass on ice, then filling up with cream.

Oh, and for those of you following the intense cell phone debate… yup, I got one from President’s Choice. Just don’t expect it to be on much! :D
