  • Goals for 2023 – Halfway Point Check In

    Given that I haven’t written a blog posting since my first quarter of the year goals check-in three months ago, I know right off the hop that I’m failing miserably on my goal of “Publish 52 blog postings”1. I’ve also made no progress on any of my 5 remaining “one off” goals. The “some other […]

  • Goals for 2023 – Quarterly Check-in #1

    One of my goals for 2023 was to do quarterly check-ins on how things are going with my goals, and since it’s the end of March, it’s time to do my first check-in. So by posting this, I’m 1/4 of the way complete on this goal at 1/4 of the way through the year – […]

  • A bunch of random photos

    Apparently I have broken the blogging floodgates with my recent blog postings, because here I am blogging again! I recently got myself a new iPhone because the one that I had was cursed. It was also old and slow and its battery was crap and it was constantly too full so I was always having […]

  • Slightly Past Halfway Through The Year Check-In On My Goals

    So I only set 4 goals for this year, because trying to make any kind of plans beyond basic things like eating food and reading books back in January, when vaccines were just starting to roll out and everything was still so unknown, seemed like a fool’s errand. So let’s see how I’ve been doing […]

  • Goal Crushed: Made 60+ New Foods/Drinks in 2020

    Given that cooking was a common pandemic activity, I completely crushed my goal of making 20 foods or drinks that I had never made before. Instead of just 20, I made 62 new foods/drinks this year! Because of this, this blog post is ridiculously long (I’ve been working on it for a week!). You may […]

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 14 – Hot Buttered Rum

    I made another new thing that I’ve never made before: hot buttered rum. It’s pretty easy – you muddle together butter and spices, then add rum and hot water. It just tastes like warm spiced rum, with a bit of creaminess from the butter. It’s good, but I’d prefer just having some eggnog with rum, […]

  • Another Beer Company

    Another Beer Company opened up in New West this week. Like, that’s the name of the company. You see, we had one beer company in New West before this – the amazing Steel & Oak – and now we have another beer company. This company has been in the works for quite some time, as […]

  • All the rest of the new foods that I made this year

    I’m back dating this posting to yesterday because I had it mostly written but didn’t quite get around to finishing it before I had to leave for a New Year’s Eve party last night. When I last wrote about the new foods I made this year as part of my goal to make 18 food […]

  • Stuff I Learned This Year: Scotch Edition

    I remember the first time I tried scotch like I were yesterday. I was with some of my nerdy science friends, one of whom worked in a lab where the lounge has an amazing view of the False Creek. So a group of us went there to enjoy the view and drink some scotch. And […]

  • Stuff I Learned This Year Aeropress Coffee Making Edition

    While I was getting my place painted, Scott and I stayed at his place. But Scott didn’t have a coffee maker – he only had an Aeropress. And thus I had to learn how to use it! It was actually pretty simple, but hey, it’s a new thing I learned this year, so it totally […]
