Aka “Yoin us!” Shannon already posted about it so my blog entry about our Cuba trip will be slightly different: I loved it there. It’s nothing like Mexico, but it’s beautiful-tropical and lush. We met lots of animals, including goats, kitties, dogs, chickens, ducks, geese, lizards and millions-nay, billions-of mosquitos. If you do go, pack [...]

This sign in the washroom of Whole Foods made me laugh. I picture someone just…standing inside the washroom and getting bashed by another person in a hurry and then complaining to management. “There should be a sign, warning people about the hazard of standing near a door!” Ay. What has this world come to? Anyway, [...]
burgeons and…hand print? Luckily I live with someone who has far superior brain power than me and now I know that I really only need to type one of the 2 words anyway and it should (and did) work. Then I learned how captchas work, and that was very interesting too and I vow not [...]

She’s excited about starting at her new school [...]
I think if I had to pick a Canadian city to live in, I’d pick Montreal. It’s beautiful, cultured, the people are polite and friendly, the art galleries are free and there are tons of green parks. I didn’t have one bad meal there and you can buy beer and wine at the corner stores. [...]
A great trip which I will report upon more fully later, after I have had some sleep. 7am flights are not fun or recommended to anyone in general. My new necklace. Spending time away from my family made me miss them and love them and remember why we’re a team.
2009 has been alternately incredibly joyous and unbearably unpleasant (and not for reasons most people would guess!) and I am taking a mini vacation to Montreal for a couple days. I will be meeting up with my sister (who lives in Vancouver) and we are planning on being good tourists, visiting museums, shopping and eating [...]
