Why “Oh! 365, eh?”:
The Oh! is a playful dig at the author’s habit of exclaiming out loud upon discover something new or exciting.
The 365 is a nod to Microsoft Office 365 as well as the author’s year-round use of technology.
The eh? is a shout out to the author’s fondness for punctuating her sentences with that oh so Canadian word, as a method for inciting a reply.
