Out and About: Parkdale!

I had an appointment this morning that was close enough to home that I could walk, and on the way home, I passed the most gloriously named bakery, Glory Hole Doughnuts. Yes, that is the actual name of an actual doughnut shop in my neighbourhood. Their tagline is, “What creams are made of”. Of course,…

Honestly…

…what am I supposed to do with these two hooligans? The Hubster and Miss Kitty certainly have quite the affinity for one another; like the little sister George never had, and the big brother Kitty never wanted (haha), these two get along like graham crackers and chocolate…which I suppose makes me the marshmallow that glues…

Travelscapes: TempleCon 2015 – Oh What a Time We Had…

I’ve had a challenging time trying to explain to non-attendees just exactly what TempleCon is, and what it’s about. Trying to come up with a short, pithy response has been difficult, as there is so much to say! The blurb below, paraphrased from the Providence Journal’s article on TempleCon, I think says it best: “Founded…

Travelscapes: TempleCon 2015 – One more sleep…!

Sorry for being MIA for the last little while; as mentioned in my previous post, the hubster, some good friends and I are heading to a great little Gaming and Steampunk convention very soon! Since my last post, I’ve been feverishly working on my wardrobe for this event, and even though our departure is now…

Travelscapes: TempleCon 2015 is a GO!

Ok, I admit it. For several years of our relationship, when it was just the Hubster (then the BoyToy) and me, we had been getting old. I don’t mean chronological age, mind you — because, well DUHHH — but more like we were getting a little too set in our ways, stuffy, and boring. Rut…

Algonquin Park…Kicked Our Asses.

I distinctly remember the Friday before I left on my Great Algonquin Adventure, my boss asking me about my vacation plans. When I mentioned where I was going, she asked in a concerned fashion if I had checked the weekly forecast for the region. I admitted I hadn’t, as I didn’t want to see bad…

Algonquin Park, Here We Come!

Don’t get me wrong, I really like my new job, and all of the potential I can see for my career advancement. My boss likes me (I think…hard to tell with women…), and I like her, and my colleagues are super-golden awesomesauce and great fun to boot. But man, am I ever exhausted. I work…

I am the ditziest bride-to-be ever.

I have a lot to live up to.  My younger (baby) sister…she hates it when I call her that…got married to the love of her life last February. I was part of the bridal party. This girl is SO ORGANIZED it’s actually a little scary; pretty much everything went off without a hitch, even though…
