Yesterday's birthday was pretty low key. I'm so consumed with trying to help my youngest finish up his high school career (as well as with my work) that there is little mind power left to even think about a birthday. I asked him if for my birthday he could try to get out of the … Continue reading Another Year; Another Birthday
Sorry for the 'radio silence'! My sister texted me to make sure I was still alive, given that it has been much too long since I've posted. I wish it were because I was having way too much fun, but alas, no. Just trying to keep my head above water. On the weekend, though, I had … Continue reading One Sunny Day on the Weekend
So, Guylty was asking if the view in Toronto is a nice as the one I left in Vancouver. Well, there are no mountains, but here's the view from the conference centre I'm at during the day. Nice juxtaposition of old and new. (The old is Toronto's Old City Hall.) My hotel has a swimming … Continue reading Toronto Revisited; and Vancouver
Leaving this behind for a week.
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!
