• And.... the busiest of months has come to an end. Exhales.

    October was a great if not overbooked month. Between BarCamp Vancouver, the Drupal 7 Conrib Sprint, and the big PNW Drupal Summit in Seattle last weekend, I had only one weekend off the entire month (on which there was also Drupal Camp Portland, but I decided that would be pushing it).  I made up for the past month in a big way this weekend, going out to socialize only once (last night for Halloween), sleeping in till 10am both mornings, doing laundry, cleaning my bathroom, cooking, reading, chatting with my folks on the phone, and generally being a homebody.

    BarCamp Vancouver 2009

    BarCamp was this weekend - I was so-so on it last year, it was still fun, but not many sessions really did it for me, so I came in with relatively low expectations, thinking that maybe I'd just been to too many Camps and Cons now for them to still inspire and interest me...  I am happy to report that I actually had a superb time, and am not too old and jaded to enjoy these events. :-)  The organizers did a great job (thanks a bunch, you are all awesome) and everything went off flawlessly.  Enjoyed the sessions I went to, and there were many more I wish I could have made it to (most sessions are listed here, some have notes/slides).

    My gosh, I don't know if things are actually really crazy right now, or if I'm just burnt out and tired of my stomach giving me grief.  Whatever is going on, I know I have been feeling super stressed and scattered, and crazy exhausted.  Sucks, cause I use all my energy up on work and then spend my Friday nights watching The Wedge (aka. one of the two only good shows left on MuchMusic - the other is Going Coastal) and knitting.  Granted, there are worse things in the world, but I'd frankly rather be out hanging with some lovely people!

  • I don't write too much about dating on here, because lets face it, Vancouver is a small city and everyone knows everyone, and that could just get awkward.  But this is a pretty meta post, so I'm just gonna go for it.

    I am done with "dating".

    There, I said it.  I've been single for the most part for the last 2.5 years, and at this point I've had my fair share of awkward first dates, and awkward few week to few month long "relationships."  Granted, probably the first 1.5 years of that was that sort of messed up dating where I was still working through everything from the previous relationship and finding myself again.  But the last year and a bit, I have really been in a frame of mind where if I met someone who was also in that place, and we hit it off I could actually see myself being ready for it.

  • No, not my doorbell and when you're gonna ring it.  I've been thinking about forgiveness.  I've been told that I forgive people too easily.  Usually it's not really framed as a compliment, but more surprise or questioned.  And it's true, I do forgive people easily...especially for the smaller offenses. Especially if they acknowledge in some way that they realize they did something stupid.  This can be anything from a sheepish tone to actually saying sorry.  As long as I feel like it's sincere, that's all it takes.  Often the offense is the symptom of a much deeper problem on their side anyway, and they have to live with whatever that is every day.

    I forgive you for what you did to me, but how can I forgive you for what you did to yourself?
    - Friedrich Nietzsche 

  • Hi there.

    goofyface has new helmet

    I guess I haven't been writing much this summer.  I just haven't had a whole lot to say to be honest!

    The summer has been going by quickly.  Failbody, now renamed IRONBODY (RAWWWWWWWWR!!!!!!) thanks to Tylor, has continued to have a rollercoaster year, but I'm troopering on.  Not much for travel plans this summer, I've just been chilling out and working.

    Been riding my bike a little.  Been shooting film a little.  Been Drupalling more than a little.  Yesterday was one of the funnest days in a while, spent lazing on the grass with good people.  There's been a lot of lazing this summer, possibly one of my fondest hobbies of late.

    I am sad today.

    Most times when I feel sad, I try and do something that will cheer me up.  Get out, go for a bike ride, phone someone I love, buy a new book, eat some chocolate... you know, standard things.  But I have done a lot already this weekend, in fact the most I have in about a month and a half, and I don't feel like doing much more. So instead I'm just going to feel how I feel and read my book and maybe some Dwell magazine, and look at my pretty dahlias, and eat raspberry cake, and be okay with these things not cheering me up.

  •  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!

  • But before we get to that...the West End and Kits farmers markets start this weekend! (Trout Lake's been on for a couple weeks already) Details on the www.eatlocal.org site.
