Welcome to a blog created by two friends on a mission to meet the loveliest boys in the jewel of the prairies, Calgary, Alberta.

I do not even know of an appropriate place to start writing about all of the amazing, inspiring and beautiful qualities embodied by this week’s nice boy.
Jason Lemmon and I go way back. About as far back as you want your friends to go. Just far enough to remember each other as socially awkward soccer players and speaker dancing, 25cent draft drinking 18 year-olds. If our platonic relationship can remember those embarrassing versions of ourselves and shamelessly progress, there is no reason to say that Jason and I will not also go way forward.
Jason is quite easily the most intelligent, determined person I have ever met. After finishing his undergraduate degree in BioPhysics at the University of British Columbia this year, universities around the country were fighting over a chance to work with him. He has since made the decision to return home to Calgary and begin his Ph. D. in Immunology to study a cell called macrophases or microphases or something science-y which Jason tells me is the first thing your body uses to help you heal.
Aside from having brains so good, Jason is an offensively talented singer (his glee audition video got over 60,000 votes) and a world traveler. He just returned this week from a trip where he stayed in Nepal for a month, did the trek to Everest base camp, climbed island peak, went to India for three weeks, Sri Lanka for two weeks, Hong Kong and then China for three weeks. He’s traveled to over 32 countries, to several alone, a few with friends and the most important with his mom, Linda.
Jason Lemmon is about as close as you can get to the ideal boy, friend, boyfriend and person. Once you break through his surprisingly shy demeanor, rarely seen in boys with so many outstanding traits, you find someone hilarious, reliable and too easy to get along with. I am so lucky to have had this boy be a part of my life for this many years and look forward to many more, whether he likes it or not.

Describe your dream house to us.
It would have a stone and timbre frame with a massive yard. Lots of room for my dog and a huge patio to entertain people outside. It would have earthy tones and a kick ass kitchen with sick stainless steel everything.
Now there is no way for me to transition into the next question gracefully but I have to ask, Tupac or Biggie?
I’m going to have to go with biggie.
I think it’s partially because of that remix with biggie and miley cyrus I’m not going to lie.
