Back to nature

Today’s weather aside, because it was sunny and snowing in between cloudy skies, I’ve been doing a little walking in the park nearby.

Not much to say, really, but at least the early mornings are pretty.

Just a quick hello

Because I’ve been living with my in-laws and working for a week and there’s really nothing new to talk about. Except maybe how awesome the lunch room is. My new schedule is 7:30 – 4, except game days when I get back home at midnight (damn 90 minute commute into town and 2 hours back, because 20$ a day is too much for Go Transit).

It doesn’t help that people seem to have moved on since the news was revealed and any attempt at discussion either gets ignored or shouted down.  Continue reading

Don’t be a Sucker

There are already a number of better-written (I enjoyed this post by Scalzi and the ensuing discussion), more informed posts on Charlottesville, however, keeping quiet is support, and this all seems crazy to me. I’m horrified by what happened. Here are a few things I’ve come across, and reminders that Canada has a problem too.
