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.

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…

I Miss My Breakfast Doughnut

And just like that my adventure to New York City with Steph and Gerarda has come to an end. After a weekend of eating all the things, and drinking all the drinks, I’m back home in Guelph going through some serious 15th friendiversary withdrawal.

I Will Have All The Doughnuts, Please

We arrived in New York City Friday afternoon, following a slight delay in our flight. Despite the later arrival, grey skies, and a bit of drizzle, we were pretty excited to be back in New York City to celebrate 15 years of nerding out together.

Someone Has To Be Tribute

This, apparently, is the time of year when the pace of my travel adventure begins to pick up speed. Yes, I just returned from a trip to Happy Valley-Goose Bay, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t already have the next two of five planned adventures booked.

That Time I Baked

Apparently I’m taking my goal of learning at least six new recipes this year very seriously. Because I’m nothing if not a very serious person.

Oats Not Goats

During my recent adventure exploring the United Kingdom with my brother, his girlfriend, and my friend Corey, we found ourselves in Swansea, Wales for a few days. And while I’ve written about this particular part of our adventure already, there’s one part of it that I haven’t written about as of yet.

The Year That Could Be

I spent the better part of yesterday wandering around London – because that’s what one does when they are on vacation with no set plans. Given that my normal day-to-day revolves around a very scheduled calendar and the bing of emails as they cascade relentlessly into my inbox, I’m thinking that my return to the real world…

A Nightmare Before Christmas?

We arrived in Swansea late in the afternoon on the 19th. It was mostly grey and rainy, and the line that delineated the air from the water had blurred such that the sea and sky were indistinguishable.

Black And White

For those of you who follow me on the Instagrams or on Facebook, you’ll know that for the last week I’ve been posting a black and white photo on the daily. For those of you who don’t follow me, you may have seen some of your friends taking part in a similar challenge on any…

Plans Tonight?

  Friday was an incredibly fantastic day. It all began with a little me time – specifically, some quiet time on the couch with some reading, a fresh cup of coffee, and a purring kitten nuzzled up in my lap. After some rather intense weeks, I felt it was necessary to take some time to…

Coast To Coast To Coast

After a few days in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, I awoke Wednesday morning around 5:00 am to board a tiny but glorified lawn dart on my way to Rigolet. Because I had an early flight, I spent most of the night waking up in a small panic worrying that I was going to sleep through my…

Hello Again Vancouver

On Saturday, after a mostly uneventful flight in a glorified lawn dart, I safely landed in Vancouver just in time to celebrate Canada Day.

That Time I Tried To Fly Home

I’m currently cozied up in a rather comfy bed on the 14th floor of the Alt Hotel at the Halifax airport. In theory, I should be at this very moment hurtling through the air in a glorified metal lawn dart. Instead, I shall wait until tomorrow morning to make my great escape.

My Life Is Weird II

Remember that time that I wrote about how my life is weird? Ya, well next week it gets even weirder. And I don’t mean weird bad, I mean weird good. As in, weird so good I’m doing a happy dance in my seat, grinning a grin that seems to want to break the boundaries of my…
