  • Random, Rambling Thoughts

    I know I say this every year – even years without pandemics – but how the hell is the year half over? The year seems to be flying by, especially given that March was three years long. I recently finished teaching a summer intersession course at SFU. “Intersession” is Latin from “cram a 12 week […]?

  • Champagne Gymiversary

    Three years ago today I became a weightlifter. I wasn’t particular good at it at the start- the 20 kg barbell was heavy and awkward for me to lift and my abs were never engaged when they should be and my gluts were lazy. I had to learn all the basic movements. I had to […]?

  • 2020 Still Sucks and I Still Hate It

    In the continuing saga of 2020 sucks and I hate it: I started off my trip to NYC by losing my belt at security. I took my belt off and put it in the bin with all my other stuff. And when the bin came out the other side, there was no belt. I’m guessing […]?

  • 2020 Sucks And I Hate It

    So far, 2020 has not been the year I expected it to be. I went into it with high hopes – it’s a repdigit year after all! When have numbers ever let me down?? But I got food poisoning. The day before my birthday. Like the kind that hits you suddenly and then you barf […]?

  • More Than You Probably Care To Hear About My Laptop

    Once upon a time, I bought a Macbook Pro. Where by “a time” I mean “6 years ago”. I named that computer Daenerys and, much like her namesake, eventually that laptop became somewhat unhinged. Where by “unhinged” I actually mean her hard drive was inexplicably full all the time, though I couldn’t quite figure out […]?

  • The End of A Decade

    So 2019 is now in the books and today we start the 2020s! That makes me feel old, in that I remember being a kid, when the year 2000 was “the future” and we all wondered what the world would be like in the future. And 2020 now 20 freaking years in the past! So […]?

  • I submitted the last of my grades on Friday…

    …and just like that, another semester is over. I mean, I still have all the online courses that I’m developing to work on, but I get a reprieve from prepping lectures, schlepping out to campus to teach once a week (plus schlepping out to a difference campus on two weekends at another university), marking assignments, […]?

  • Halloween 2019

    I was having trouble deciding what to be for Halloween this year and then my office announced that they’d picked a theme for the annual costume contest: horror movies. I figured that would help me as it would narrow down my options. But as I thought about it, most of the iconic horror movie characters […]?

  • Happy 5th Workiversary To Me!

    There have been a few times in my life when I decided to do something and then, as the thing approached I thought “What have I done? This is too big and too scary and too hard and I’m totally not going to be able to handle this!”. Moving across the country to do a […]?

  • Half Way Goals Check-In

    So, the year is half over. I know that every year I, like most people, marvel at how fast the year is going by, this year it’s way worse than previous years. Like, the year is half over and I haven’t really done anything… and I haven’t even planned stuff. Anyhoo, I thought that maybe […]?
