 Not to worry!  Read up and you won't have to ask yourself any longer... Vancouver Car Free Day + Main St. Market at Blim = Awesome Sunday!

Oh, and if that wasn't enough, remember how much fun World Naked Bike Ride was last year?   Saturday it returns!

Fun times!

Go go synchronicity!

Friday, December 19th - lovely dusting of snow, viewed through the window of AB headquarters.  Finished off and had a great evening with friends, then spent Saturday and Sunday running around prepping to leave for LA, where I was heading to spend Christmas with my cousins.

A nice dusting of snow

It's supposed to go down to -19C with the wind chill tonight.  Totally unheard of.  Everyone is complaining about the cold like crazy, and yet I'm pretty sure a lot of people are really enjoying it (myself included).  Maybe it's the lack of rain, but people seem pretty cheery.

MORE SNOW!!!

Of course for a lot of people who aren't as lucky as us, it's very, very tough dealing with this kind of weather.  I feel even luckier that usual just to have my warm, dry apartment and a nice bed to sleep in.

MORE SNOW!!!

I think I'm going to try and post happy things whenever I feel crappy, to help cheer myself up.

Go go synchronicity!

  1. Skipping last weekend was fun (see above).
  2. I got my hair cut (see below).
  3. My hair dresser was nice and let me whine to him about feeling crappy, which made me feel better.
  4. Went to quirky little solstice performance at the beach tonight.
  5. Tomorrow is a new day.

win of the day: haircut

This was by far one of the most fun weekends I've had in a long time. It was largely because I'm finally feeling a fair bit better, probably back to 80% or so after a few weeks of all my health crap flaring up. I forget how nice it is to actually have the energy to actually do all the stuff I want! Friday was pretty low key, but highlights involved going swimming for the first time in a couple years. The funny part was there was a couple triathletes there (World Triathlon Championships were in town this weekend), just to contrast the two ends of the human swimming ability spectrum. Things I forgot about swimming: 1) how psyched I get when I throw on my jeans and a hoody over my swimsuit before heading out, 2) how fun it is, and how relaxing swimming under the water can be, and 3) how much I totally suck at it!

Good times none the less, and I will definitely have to go more often now that I broke the seal! Friday night, headed over to Snootytown...I mean Yaletown, and watched House of Flying Daggers with some friends, which was actually an okay movie, very visually stunning even though the story line was a little iffy. Much goofiness and fun was had over the course of the evening.

I don't know how the time went so fast either, but it's true--only 2 weeks until Drupal Camp Vancouver is underway! Somehow, along with DaveO and Dale, I ended up being one of the wham-bam organizers for this, and boy has it crept up quickly...we've got our locations rented (SFU Wosk Centre and Workspace). We've got a good number of volunteers helping out (but we can always use more!!!), and a bunch of lovely sponsors making this possible for the low, low price to attendees of $20 (that includes a t-shirt and Saturday lunch)!

IT SNOWS!!!!!
