The Big Delay

After a few days in Happy Valley-Goose Bay for meetings, Nic and I awoke on Wednesday morning at the crack of way too early. Despite our exhaustion, we had a flight to catch and were quite eager to board our tiny but shiny metal lawn dart on our way to Rigolet.

The Case Of The Missing Luggage

Yesterday, Nic and I boarded the first of two shiny metal lawn darts on our way to Happy Valley-Goose Bay. We’re here for a few days of meetings, and then will be boarding yet another shiny metal lawn dart on our way to Rigolet.

Another Seven Day Photo Challenge

Back in the old-timey days of 2017, you might remember that I took part in a seven-day photo challenge. The goal of that challenge was extremely simple – post a photo every day for seven days, but with the following caveats: no people, no pets, no explanations.

Choppin’ Broccoli

Earlier this week, Nic, Josh, and I sauntered our way to Gordon Food Service to take part in the Milton chapter of Soup Sisters. There we joined a small army to spend the eve making four different types of soup for various local charitable organizations.

Blargh

For whatever reason, today was one of those days where I felt completely useless – as if nothing was coming together and the seemingly simple was hella complicated. And it wasn’t just that I couldn’t do simple things – such as form thoughts and find words – the entire day seemed heavier than it should…

Postponed

In case you haven’t been following along, I was supposed to have boarded a shiny metal lawn dart on my way to Rigolet, Nunatsiavut, via Happy Valley-Goose Bay this past Sunday. However, things happened and now we’re holding off our trip for another few weeks. The wanderbeast is not happy.

Leaving On A Jet Plane

It’s difficult to believe, but the last time I boarded a shiny metal lawn dart was back in the old-timey days of early May. In fact, it has officially been forty days since I hurtled through the air travelling from somewhere to somewhere. It probably comes as no surprise that this is making me somewhat…

Sabbatical

In slightly more than 80 days I will begin my first sabbatical since becoming a faculty member in the School of Computer Science. To say that I’m excited would be an understatement.

That Time I Cooked

Normally my schedule has not allowed me the opportunity to cook. Or, more specifically, my schedule combined with my laziness has meant that my kitchen has gone mostly underutilized for approximately the last eleventeen years. We’ve become estranged, distant, separated – somehow unfamiliar with each other.

If Your Friends Jumped Off A Bridge…

If your friends jumped off a bridge, would you? I could almost hear my mom saying this to me when Nic first informed me that we were only about an hour away from a potential experience of the bungee kind. Traditionally meant to make one rethink their follow-the-pack mentality, in my case, the memory of my…

Wins Of The Week

Nic and I arrived in Vancouver on Wednesday morning, following an uneventful ride across the country in my 16th shiny metal lawn dart of the year. At my current rate of travel, it seems that I’m on track to see the inside of at least 40 shiny metal lawn darts (covering at least 2.5 times the…

New Face Furniture

After almost two weeks, I’ve finally picked up my new every day, non-sunglasses, glasses. This means that I no longer have to switch back and forth between super old prescription, and my brand spanking new I can see all the things prescription.

Mostly May But Partially April

Last Friday I thought it was Saturday, and then Saturday I thought it was Sunday. When Sunday finally rolled around, I felt that I was playing hooky from work because it was a beautiful day and I opted to spend it soaking up all the sunshiny rays I could whilst enjoying a delicious caesar or two on…

Seeing Through Space-Time

If you follow along with the Instagrams, and in particular my Instagram, you might already be aware of the fate that befell my trusty sunglasses while I was running down the street after a tipple or two in New York City only slightly more than two weeks ago. For those who aren’t aware, let’s just…
