Episode 217 - Your Jokey Jokes


Hey, it's the day of Isabelle's big group show!  We're pretty excited about it too.  Well, I mean I assume Isabelle is.  I'm typing this having not spoken to her yet today. She just got up.  I'll confirm her excitedness soon.

It is a bit dreary today, rainy etc.  It hasn't really rained in quite a while, so that's probably a good thing.

Isabelle is probably rightfully) concerned that my colleague Paul (whose wife Jacky is in the show) and I will become the centre of attention because we are, frankly, awesome.

I've been biking a lot.  Hell, I put in 60 km on Monday.  I actually had no idea where I was.  Well, I mean I knew where I was, just not precisely.

Isabelle is going to do great tonight.   Perhaps we'll have special podcast coverage...



Episode 216 - In The Helmet


Now over to Dave with the weather.  Thanks Dave, it's going up to 16 today, though it is a little chilly right now.  Should be sunny and clear all week.

In case you haven't guessed, I'm doing the whole 'type some of this stuff up in advance' deal.

Things started out as they often do, with Isabelle not being able to find her glasses.  She found them, inside her bike helmet.  Actually I found them.  Spare me your blind jokes....

We talked a bit about rationality vs gut feelings.

Then I shopped!  I got a really good cashier.  Also, I saw a person whose taste in music would not really fit with mine.

After that Isabelle talked about her upcoming show, we're both pretty excited about it.


Episode 215 - Value Added


Seems like it is going to be a nice day.  It's only 7am as I type this, and it is foggy, but that is because it got cold over night and is starting to warm up.  Supposed to hit 17 today.  We got Jonno a new bike, so he and I will go for a ride later.  

I'm back on the university senate!  I voted against a motion to extend.  It was a pretty good session actually, just too long.  We had a guest speaker, Ken Coates, and he was good.  Then we all had a couple of beers afterwards.

Isabelle has her first show as a working artist (not a student one) coming up.  It is with two other people who are friends of hers, one who was briefly on this podcast a few years ago.  It should be pretty great. 

Hope you like this episode.

I also hope you like the picture of me in the hat that Isabelle took.

Oh yeah, there is another Isabelle pick in this episode!
