What’s the perfect amount of time to spend in front of the computer? Is there a perfect amount of time? I feel like I spent too much time in front of the computer. Which is why this will be short. And mostly of photos.
Also, I’ve been feeling weird lately about writing in general. I’m currently trying to figure out my voice. It’s an intense and strange process.
Anyhow, in so many words…

I’ve done a bunch of work today and I should be doing some more but I just don’t have it in me. So I’ll be posting to my blog, thank you very much.
It’s been really nice being back in Vancouver. I was so surprised by how many people were happy to see me. Nice to be missed. Now I’m trying to figure out how I can be based in two places, and where those two places will be. Vancouver is one, for sure. Not too sure where the other will be. Suggestions?
In terms of stuff I’m working on/have worked on…I wrote this for CP, which is about a fun/nerdy event happening this weekend. I’m working on a project with Chris Jacot, which we hope to air for the last ever episode of the People’s Program Project. What, you’re thinking. That’s still around? Well, technically it is but since it’s so infrequent I decided to try and put out one last podcast and call it a day (well, two years and 27 episodes.) I’ve lost the passion and drive for that particular podcast, but I still plan on putting out some other podcast-related stuff in the (hopefully) near future. I’ll keep y’all posted on when the last episode of P3 goes up, and I’ll be sure to excessively promote the other podcast I’ve slowly been working on.
If my writing is currently any indication, I’m very tired. So here are some photos.

This week has been a bit hectic, since my getaway trip to Seattle made me behind by a day or so. But it was well worth it. I’m writing it up as a travel piece but I’ll share some photos in the meantime…
We went to the Experience Music Project, but solely to check out the sci-fi museum. Turns out it’s closed, except for one random exhibit about Battlestarship Galactica, which I’ve never watched.
Then we booted it to Theo’s chocolate factory, where we got a tour that involved lots of samples. It smelt really good in there. Just like a chocolate factory should smell, I suppose.
Then we checked in to our hotel, Hotel 1000. Top notch stuff. I’ve recommended it to several people thus far, quite sincerely. Our room and its view was kind of like a dream come true. No complaints.
The next day I did a lot of this, ’cause to me, this is perfection. Big bed, tv, computer and stunning view. Also, I had the best massage of my life, courtesy of Jo at Spaaah. Hot stone. I was on some level that was somewhere between sleep and half consciousness. I think it’s called bliss.
The next day I did a bunch of solo wandering. Went to the Smith Tower, and got to explore the Chinese Room, which has a panoramic view of the city. It was so very special. There’s this chair in there that if you sit in it, and you’re single, and a lady, you’ll be married within a year. I’m not going to reveal if I did or not…
Good trip. Great trip, in fact. Sweet little getaway, for sure. My piece is due on Friday so I’ll be sure to post it when it’s done.
Oh. I’ve added an audio section to my portfolio page, so if you wanted to hear that DNTO piece from a few weeks ago, give it a click and have a listen. Scroll down to audio.
That’s about it. Keeping busy working on some exciting projects. More to come, eventually. Vague and annoying, I know. That’s how I do it (but only when I want to be vague and annoying.)

Happy new year, six days in. How’s everyone feeling? I’m feeling pretty sluggish to be honest, but it’s probably ’cause I’ve eaten a total of four piece of bread so far today.
Not much to report. The rest of my holidays were great.
Dutchie had a play day with her Internet sensation boytoy, Grampa. (Scroll down to #21)
We went to check out Laugh Gallery, which proved to be just the kind of New Years party I wanted to attend. Laid back, good vibes in a venue that reminded me of an elementary school assembly.
A highlight of the night was watching one of my favourite comedians, Phil Hanley, perform. Always a treat.
Lucky for you, you get to relive the magic.

This time of year, people with real jobs generally take time off, so that people without real jobs (me) feel all unsettled because they don’t know if they should still keep working or if they should feel like they’ve earned this time off too. No one’s going to be answering their calls anyhow. It’s weird like that. Whatever, I’ll still use it as an opportunity to chill out, regardless of the fact that I’ll still feel unsettled about doing so. Does any of that make sense?
It’s totally the season for being social. Mostly. Here are some pictures of stuff…
Randy and I checked out Science World, or Telus World of Science rather, which we soon realized was a backdrop paradise…
