  • 2022 Year in Review

    Since I barely blogged anything this year, I figured I might do a little year in review. Since my memory is terrible, I’m mostly relying on my photos and the few blog postings I did write. I had been thinking that nothing happened this year, but now that I’ve had a look at my photos, […]

  • The Trip That Never Was

    I was going spend Christmas in Ontario with my family. My flight was scheduled to leave on Dec 19 at 12:05 am – I like to take the red eye from Vancouver to Toronto because then I arrive early in the morning, power through the day, and am tired by Eastern bedtime. If I take […]

  • Stabbing Myself For Science!

    So I signed up to be in a study where you send a blood sample in the mail and they test your blood for antibodies to COVID-19. I signed up for it eleventy billion years ago, but there were delays in actually sending the kits because supply chain. Honestly, I did not expect that supply […]

  • This and That

    So nearly half the year is gone. WTF? I really feel like it was January about 5 minutes ago and now it’s June! And, as I tend to do when I haven’t blogged in a while, I’m going for a bulleted list! May was cray-cray. In addition to my week in Prince George for work, […]

  • I’m Home For A Good Time, Not A Long Time

    Hey, remember that time I went to Prince George? Well, I’m back from that trip, but not for long as on Saturday I’ll be heading east to Halifax. Prince George highlights: Nancy O’s (pretty much *everyone* told us to go there and they were all very wise to recommend it Twisted Cork (also pretty good) […]

  • The rumours of Ogopogo’s death have been greatly exaggerated

    I’m here to issue a first ever Not To Be Trusted With Knives correction! After I posted about how the city of Kelowna tore down the statue of Ogopogo that I love to visit , my friend Sandra emailed to let me know that it was actually a *different* Ogopogo statue – a giant Ogopogo […]

  • Farewell, Sweet Lake Monster

    So I’m pretty sad that the city of Kelowna smashed up the Ogopogo statue. I first met the illustrious Ogopogo on my first trip to Kelowna, when I went there with a band of travelling scientists. True story.  Me and a band of traveling scientists, sitting on a lake monster. As one does. Whenever I […]

  • What Have I Been Doing for the Past Month – a bulleted list

    So now that I’m done making excuses for my prolonged absence from the blogosphere, here’s a brain dump of all the things I’ve thought “I should blog about that!” in the last month: I did, in fact, have that belated birthday party I talked about having. I decided that since I celebrate Bethmas Eve, Bethmas, […]

  • Quick Trip Recap: London & Scotland

    I’m sure it will be awhile before I get to do some of my usual thorough post-trip blogging of my trip to the UK, what with all the having-to-go-back-to-work-and-teaching-and-catch-up-on-all-the-work-I-missed-while-I-was-galavanting-around-the-UK, but for those of you who just can’t wait, here’s a high level summary of all the fun I had while you were working like a […]

  • Sunshine Coast

    So we didn’t actually die in that cabin in the woods, as naming my blog post after a horror movie might have led one to believe. As per usual, life has been busy and here it is 23 days after our trip and I’m finally blogging about it. Usually when I go on a trip, […]
