28 Down 62 To Go

Week four of the 90 Day Fitness Challenge was trying; very trying. It started off filled with good intentions and kick-ass energy, but then life decided to get in the way and that all changed. Initially I was worried that work was going to be the main challenge – what with three major events this week. […]

Take That Cold Weather

I woke up yesterday morning to the news that it was -23C outside but that it felt like -29C with the windchill. Seriously, who decides that these temperatures are okay?

Buyer’s Remorse? Not Yet

Guelphzilla

Several weeks ago there was an incident at the Stone Road Mall. I think it had something to do with a coolant leak, but details were scarce. Okay, maybe details weren’t truly scarce.

Everyday Heroes

I am freezing. Fortunately, I’m in the safety of my warm comfy home, in my warm comfy pants, enjoying the warmth of the wee fuzzball lying next to me, and savouring the extra hot tea I’ve just made. All told, a fantastic situation. However, things could have been much worse. You see, after another long […]
