66,666

This happened today:

66,666

For the record, there are three instances of 666 in that number.

It seems like only yesterday 1,333 days ago, I only had 666 km on my car! They grow up so quick.

In Honour of Halloween, My Hockey Team Has a .666 Winning Percentage

Halloween hockey statsAstute mathletes will notice that a 2-5-0-1 record does not a .666 winning percentage make. This is because the winning percentage only counts the games that we’ve played in Division 3, to which we were recently demoted. We are 2-1 in Div 3, hence the .666.

Happy Halloween, y’all!

zomg, my plant is still alive!

Somehow, I’ve managed to keep this plant alive for more than a month:

I’m pretty sure that’s a record for me.  My other plant, which I received about aweek after this one is also still alive, but it’s spent the past week on vacation in one of my coworkers’ offices as she has a window and we figured that since it was looking a little lacklustre, perhaps some sunshine would do it some good.

Also, I got sick of never being able to find my keys in my purse, so got these:

Quatchi & Mukmuk keychains!  Of course, I’ve merely replaced the can’t-find-my-keys problem with the can-no-longer-close-my-purse problem.

And finally, Satan drives a minivan:

It only happens once in the life of every car…

It only happens once in the life of every car... by you.

And you only get 1 km in which to capture the photographic evidence.  Fortunately, I was driving down 12th Avenue when it happened and I was stopped at virtually every red light, so I was able to snap this photo without endangering myself and those around me.

And speaking of my beloved car, I dropped her off at the dealership this evening, where she will be diagnosed and fixed and hopefully given back to me soon.  They’ve given me a loaner smart car with a sunroof and A/C, which, given that it was 31 degrees1 (!) when I got off work today, I really shouldn’t complain about. I figure I’ll enjoy that while I’ve got it and I’ll try not to miss my Zaphod Beeblebrox the Car too much!

1For my American readers, 31 degrees C is ~88 degrees F.
