Stupid bomb threat!

September 28, 2009

So… I spent all day getting myself psyched to go to Crossfit today the Workout Of the Day (WOD) today was:

  • 50 Pullups
  • 400m run
  • 21 Thrusters 95lb men / 65lb women
  • 800m run
  • 21 Thrusters 95lb men / 65lb women
  • 400m run
  • 50 Pullups

But the gym was closed due to a bomb threat on King St. of all things… I guess I’ll have to do something else at home. If nothing else I have 28 Burpees to get through 😉


Where to start

August 10, 2008

Ever been away from your blog for so long that you’re not even sure where to pick it all up again? That’s where I find myself today. In all honesty, that’s where I’ve been for the past few weeks, I haven’t written about the things and the reasons why I started this blog in so long that the thought of writing has been… well… overwhelming. Do I talk about my new job? About how well Kate is doing and how proud I am of her? Or maybe of what it’s been like to be back on the dating scene?

It used to be that no one followed my blog and so it didn’t really matter what I wrote, or what tone I took, but that has changed. This blog is not popular by any stretch of the imagination, but my friends, and perhaps my co-workers do follow it from time to time. So it has become a rather censored version of what I would have otherwise written. I have absolutly nothing bad to say about anyone, but… sometimes even writing the simple stuff while knowing that it’s being read by those that I know seems odd.

Maybe this blog is destined to stay all Vanilla.

Thank you Melle for posting this great video. Up until tonight, I had no idea who Randy Pausch. I wish I had found out about him earlier in life. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did:

Starting to feel at home

July 11, 2008

It’s been just over two months at the new gig and I’m starting to feel right at home. It’s that feeling you get when you know everyone’s name (Yup, everyone in the company all 41 of them). When you walk into the office in the morning and spend the first few minutes catching up with the guys.

I work for a company that I’ve been told is one of the best in town. Glad to say, it’s true 🙂

If you have a kid with an ex, the day will come when wires get crossed and communications get missed. Although it’s easy to get one’s feathers all ruffled, as long as everything works out… let it go and laugh about it, because odds are that in hindsight, it’s actually funny.

Today, Kate’s mom left the country on a one week vacation. I knew she would be leaving sometime between today and two days from now, but never got the final confirmation of the dates… To my surprise… today was the day. Thank God for Facebook, saw a wall post she left on a friend’s wall and that’s how I figured out she had left. Now, she might very well have sent me an email with the details, but it just so happens that my mail server went down a few days ago and took quite a few emails with it… timing has never been good to me 🙂

A bit of running around after work and it all got sorted out. No harm, now foul.

Fraud Alert

June 17, 2008

Today I got a call from my credit card company informing me that they’ve detected what seemed to be fraudulent activity on my credit card. Funny thing is, it wasn’t my numerous online purchases that set off the alarm bells, it was my repeated visits to Home Depot over the weekend that did it.

Has it come to this??? That using my credit card in person in the real world, as opposed to my many “shady” online buys, that sets off the fraud cops?

Best Father’s Day gift EVER

June 17, 2008

Yesterday was Father’s Day (happy belayed Father’s Day to all the Dads out there). Kate made me breakfast in bed which consisted of a bowl of Cherios with a 1/4 of All Bran (she knows what I like). I also got a beautiful card and a little clay figurine of her (she made both).

But the best gift came in the form of hand made door knob hanger. It’s “do not disturb” sign so that Daddy can sleep in on weekends 🙂 How cool is that?!?!
