You may remember how disappointed I was when I couldn't get my hands on a ticket to see P!nk for her May 2018 concert. Tickets went on sale in October 2017, with a "verified fan" service that was supposed to make it impossible for scalpers to get ahead of ordinary people. Instead, immediately at the … Continue reading I Finally Saw P!nk!
A neighbourhood street on a gloomy day: And a little spot of pleasure reminding me of my childhood:
The first two episodes of Season 2 of the podcast dropped on Monday and, wonder of wonders, this time the show actually does seem to feature Wolverine! Last season, those (like me) who were listening for Richard Armitage were left disappointed, as the show was all about tracking Wolverine -- meaning that he was generally … Continue reading Wolverine: The Lost Trail
Why would the guy who admittedly preferred to stay inside reading rather than play footie (or presumably other sports) with his brother remind me of rugby? Well, as I was mentioning to Kate the other day, there are these screenshots on RichardArmitageNet.com that show just how suited those legs and let's be honest, those glutes were for the … Continue reading Richard to Rugby
Hard to believe, but Sunday was my first day off in I don't know how long! I slept in and then went outside to find that it was sunny -- and warm enough to forgo the jacket and just wear a short-sleeved shirt! The Weather Network says it's going up to 19 Celsius (66 Fahrenheit) … Continue reading A Day off and Sunny Weather!
Today at work we had a party with lots of purple and a fabulous cake. The organizers showed this video with the song "Bread & Roses", with a folk duo singing. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XdDXqoxljTI As a finale to the day, I am taking myself out to see "The Favourite" to enjoy the reportedly fine female performances. Happy … Continue reading Happy International Women’s Day!
Sorry I've been so silent lately. The pace of my work right now barely leaves time to breathe. The weather here is unsettled. I left home this morning seeing no precipitation in my neighbourhood, then hit some snow that really slowed the traffic down. (It is Vancouver, after all... a bit of snow almost immobilizes … Continue reading Why Is It Still Winter?
The other day I was having an exciting time browsing accounting software when I came across this picture that looks remarkably like someone we know... He often displays his penchant for baseball caps and the facial expression certainly matches one of his go-to poses for pictures... And we know that he has at least pretended … Continue reading Seeing Double?
So, did I jinx Vancouver with my cheeky post of the beautiful weather we were having? Judge for yourself. On the left is the view from my office window on Sunday. On the right is the same corner taken from outside on January 31. (You can see the bend at the top of the evergreen tree … Continue reading Winter! (It’s Arrived…)
One of my stocking stuffers at Christmas was a copy of Hello! Canada. The horoscope, unfortunately, resonated with me: "The task that lies before you may look so vast that you're tempted to give up, but ...you can throw your pessimism away. So roll up your sleeves! There's work to be done and you have the … Continue reading Pick-Me-Ups
