It’s The Future!

Apparently It’s 2012. I hope your New Year is filled with Awesome. If I have any advice, it is this: Happy New Year all y’all. Happy New Year long time!

Scotchy Scotchy Scotch

As I was sitting here sipping away on some very tasty 10 year old Ardbeg Islay single malt scotch, a thought struck me. Specifically, I realized that in my list of goals for 2012 (see here, here, here, and here for some examples), none involved scotch. How, for the love of all things tasty, did I forget…

Certifiably Certifiable

Hmm, me thinks I might have bitten off a bit much. That, or if I manage to complete everything that I just wrote down in a very fancy-pants spreadsheet of walking-running-biking-yoga‘ing, then I’ll officially be certifiable. Or awesome. Maybe both. What exactly did I just write down in this fancy-pants spreadsheet that I keep yammering…

The Year That Was

A few weeks ago I wrote an update about my Not-So-Bucket-List list. Specifically, I decided to summarize the activities that I have managed to cross off since the list began, especially given that the original list of 101 things in 1001 days is set to expire in May of 2012. Being the nerd that I…

One Extra Day To Be Amazing

I’m sure everyone is aware that 2012 is a leap year. That is, 2012 has 366 days – 1 day more than the common 365 day year. Generally speaking, the extra day corrects for the fact that the earth takes a little longer than 365 days to circle the sun. Personally, I look at it…

Family, Nerds, And Gigantor-Jesus: It Must Be Christmas

Having returned to a somewhat normal existence (whereby normal means snuggling with Elliot for hours while working, enjoying late breakfasts, lunching on leftovers, and snacking on the remaining bits and pieces of Christmas cookie goodness), I thought I’d take a moment to say thanks to everyone that made this Christmas amazing. Considering the events of…

Extreme Pantal Dysmorphia

I’m not sure about you, but I woke up today feeling full. Seriously. I blame the bacon wrapped scallop appetizers. And the hummus and crackers. And the caviar. And the shrimp and asparagus spears. And the mimosas and bacon breakfast. And the Irish-ed coffees. And the turkey. And the stuffing. And the gravy. And the…

Merry Christ-Math! Yup. I Went There.

A quick post because I’m sure we’re all busy exchanging gifts, eating too much, and spending time with our families. Anyway, in honour of Christmas I present to you dear readers this awesome Christmas carol that someone sent to me last year. From a Christmas point of view, it’s great. From a math point of…

Merry Christmas All Y’All

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you’re able to spend this eve, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, hugging your favourite tiger.

Twelve Trips, Twelve Months

On Wednesday night, Aidan and I returned home from our 4 day adventure in New York City. Aside from the obvious excellent time that we had exploring New York, be that exploration of the visual, gastronomical, or booze-y variety, two other most excellent things happened while I was away. First, I got to see Arlene….

Wanderlusting In New York City

After a most entertaining few days in New York, I’m home. Boo. Let me repeat that. Boo. Our last day included more walking, eating, and drinking of the tastiest hot chocolate ever created by human hands. And that, dear friends, is the hot chocolate that comes from Choco Bolo, an awesome little chocolaterie that is…

The Morning After The Night Before

Today is my last day in New York City. And unless something crazy happens between now and the new year, it’s my last day in NYC this year. Excuse me, I have something in my eye. *sniff* Yesterday was another walk-our-butts-off kind of day. I think, however, that our wandering was a little slower than…

Awesome, Or Something Else

My vacation has been absolutely memorable for several reasons already; the least of which was the flight. I would like to take this moment to personal thank you mysterious airplane panel that required replacement. You know who you are – the same airplane panel that apparently could only be replaced after AirCanada decided to board…

Suspicious Behaviour Equals 0.000125

And just like that, thanks to @jsprty on The Twitter (or Jasper if you are lucky enough to know him IRL – in real life), we are at the airport. In fact, we’ve managed to successfully navigate the labyrinth of the airport. Which isn’t really so much a labyrinth as it is a set of…

12 Hours And Counting

In about 9 hours I’ll be heading to the airport. In about 10 hours I’ll be making my way through security. In about 11 hours, I’ll be enjoying a drink with my brother as we wait to board. And, in about 12 hours I’ll be taking off for New York City. W00t! Anyway, I’ve nothing…
