Eat, Sleep… Work, I Guess

I don’t have a podcast to share with you today, and I know I’m supposed to. Sorry!

My excuse is that I’m away from home from Thursday to Sunday this week, visiting with family so more of Calvin’s relatives can meet him. On top of that, I had a deadline to meet with work today, so I’ve been hunched over the laptop all day and couldn’t really have made time to record, edit, and upload a podcast.

Not when I’m spending my break time doing this, anyways:

This little guy has got it right. Eating and sleeping; that’s the life. Not sure about the crying and pants-pooping parts, and it’s probably hard for him to derive a stable income, but on balance it seems like a pretty intelligent lifestyle.

I’ll make up for the missed podcast next week. I’m also planning to get back on the writing horse by writing some short stories and moving forward with the script for the Special People comic, now that I’m going to have a bit more writing time available.

As a closing tidbit, those of you who are fans of Loading Ready Run may be interested to know that Calvin will be making a cameo (as himself) in an upcoming LRR video. Intriguing, no?

Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day!

Here are some pictures and a short video from the fireworks in the Victoria harbour. I promised, didn’t I?


Yesterday I went with a couple of friends to watch part of a cricket match. It was a rec league, and my friend knew some of the players, so I had the chance to learn the rules from a couple of people who actually knew what they were talking about.

I’m proud to say that I think I finally understand how cricket works. Mostly. It has to do with wearing white clothing and yelling “Howzat!?” every now and then. And hugging, apparently. Sometimes people run back and forth.

A curious people, the English.
