Awesome deals this week at A&P and Dominion:
Jim Squires posted a superb article at fjetsam about 20 things you didn’t know about Seasame Street. I couldn’t resist posting this interesting list here 🙂
1. Baby Bear is Jewish.
2. The Count is nearly two million years old.
3. The Countâ€™s laugh after counting each number was discontinued over concerns of it frightening children.
Did you ever wonder how they put a ship inside?
That’s a pretty good deal for $13.99 🙂
Every 3 months Shoppers Drug Mart has an event where if you spend $50 or more you get 20x the optimum points
e.g. if you spend $50 you get 50 x 10 x 20 = 10,000 points.
During that event, if you refer someone (let’s call him John) and he spends $50 or more you will get 1000 points for referring him!
Now let’s say John refers Jane and Jane spends $50 or more… you’ll get 1000 points as well although you didn’t directly refer her!
So what we’re trying to do here is have a chain so that each person refers the next person and we get 1000 points for each person below us in the chain who spends $50 or more on the x20 event day!

To have some fun at SmartCanucks.ca I thought of starting a new contest. Here it is 🙂
Submit a photo of the weirdest thing you have at home!
Be creative! the more interesting, weird or funny that â€œthingâ€ is, the larger your chances of winning. Any photo quality is fine: this is not a photography contest, itâ€™s simply about the weirdest thing you have in your home!
Submissions are open till the end of February. Please email me your photo to:
I will then post your photo here
During the first week of March all SmartCanucks’ forum members will vote for their favourite photos. The voting results will be live and visible to everyone. The top 5 contestants will win the following prizes:
1st place: $25 Shoppers Drug Mart or Indigo/Chapters or Cara gift card
2nd place:$20 Shoppers Drug Mart or Cara gift card
3rd place: $15 Cara gift card
4th place: $10 Shoppers Drug Mart or Cara gift card
5th place: $10 Shoppers Drug Mart or Cara gift card
– Shoppers Drug Mart is PharmaPrix in Quebec so Quebecers can join the contest too.
– Cara gift cards could be used at Swiss Chalet, Second Cup, Kelseyâ€™s, Harveyâ€™s and Montanaâ€™s
Looking forward to some weird hilarious photos 🙂
Not sure how good these are. They could be good if you’re going to Whistler during Reading week.
Last month Boo let you all in on a little secret. I was working on relaunching my old wordpress.com driven blog as a brand-spankin’ new, independently-hosted, multi-user driven, cinammon scented, trans-fat free dynamo! Well the time to unveil it is finally here. So if you’ll all join me in making that drumroll noise in your head…
(insert drumroll noise here)
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, I present to you FJETSAM, the eighth wonder of the world!
When not defending our borders from virus-carrying monkeys and David Hasselhoff, FJETSAM likes long walks on the beach, sunsets, and reading/writing Ann Landers. FJETSAM is not a food stuff. Swallowing FJETSAM will harm you. FJETSAM is not recommended for pregnant women, individuals suffering from a heart condition, or the elderly. Take FJETSAM twice daily or as recommended by your doctor.
Now that that’s out of the way, let me tell you what FJETSAM is: FJETSAM is a blog presenting and confronting the best of pop and internet culture, from the most popular movies to the most obscure TV shows, from the best of the web to the worst of YouTube, FJETSAM’s got you covered.
In addition to my plug, I’d just like to take this time to give a special thanks to Boo. Boo was a big believer in my old site and offered to help with the relaunch the minute I mentioned it was on the table. He’s been absolutely indispensible, and I can’t thank him enough. And just a reminder kiddies, Boo not only helped launch the site, he’ll be contributing there too! So don’t be afraid to come on by and see some of your old SC friends — and you might even find some new bloggers you like there to!
