Meet my new minion: GRYPHON!

I’ve long since been missing canine companionship since my legendary pal Blaze’s days became numbered. The last few years have not been particularly accommodating of a battlehound… Finally, however, the time has arrived.

Enter Gryphon, the awesome puppy! I got her through a rescue organization (AARCS). She’s a damned smart pup and has inspired us to meet tons of people in the community now. Annnyway.. Read on to see the full photo album of her first month with us, during which she aged from 4 to 5 months old.

¡Mi cumpleaños número 27, en México hermoso!


Check out some more photos here.

Ding, I just hit “level 27”..
Well, here we’ve yet another year past.

You know, when I was about 20, I decided that 25 would be an amazing year for me. I thought I’d be done school and would have torn in to some great work by then. As it turned out, 25 was a good year, but nothing like 26 has been.

It would seem 26 was the year (and then some), that I thought 25 would be. What an absolutely awesome year it has been. I finished my degrees, continued a rewarding & deep relationship (with a pet raptor), bought a(n ancient) house and made ridiculous head-way on my career plans. And to top it all off, I got to end the year of 26 in (muy hermoso) Cancun, Mexico.

Suffice to say, the world has been so kind to me. Universe, from the bottom of my (robotic?) heart, I thank you.

8 Years, 2 Degrees, 1 Internship & 0 Regrets

Engineering GradComputer Science Grad
Well, for those that know, it’s been a damned long time in coming, but I have finally fully graduated as of June 7th and 8th 2010.

The tale of my 8 year tenor at the University of Calgary is somewhat of a unique animal, there was a lot of pain and a great deal of fun. As I look back after just completing that journey I am delighted to be through it and I’m keen to move on in to new areas of life. But I also know that these years were great and I’ll happily reflect upon them as I drift away from this phase.

Cheers to our sage cat, Mr. Jasper

Jasper, our epically sage cat left us March 24th, 2010.

He sported a remarkable disposition unlike that of any other cat I’ve known. He expressed a vast range of positive emotions (with the occasional impressive act of disapproval). Jasper’s one of a kind character sets the bar for kitties everywhere and earned him an assortment of loving nick-names such as “Puppy Cat”. His grace is unrivaled and we will unquestionably miss him.

I am however delighted to have known him and thankful for the bizarre fortunes he enjoyed. This king of cats will remain comfortable and relaxed in the most treasured corners of our hearts.

Rest Peacefully Jasper.
