Episode 257 - Gumballs and MSG


Seems pretty ok out right now, about -8C or so.

Jon is joining us today, and probably will a lot in the next while. He decided that he wants to come. Fine by us. I like the company while shopping as well.

Oh man did we have a storm. Like, it was crazy. To top it off, Mis, the virtual Yooper was to fly in Sunday, no dice. It’s almost surprising that he made it in for the Monday.

OK, I wrote all of that before we went, and damned backpack studio crashed. However, we had other errands to run so it worked out.

Isabelle is doing an art project based on pictures of podcasters podcasting, so send yours!

Isabelle went to a pow wow this afternoon!

Isabelle is on her way to Halifax in about a month to see her friend’s MFA final show. Pretty niiiiiiiice.

Oh turns out Jon couldn’t be in this one, he was originally, but yeah, it crashed.

Episode 256 - Weavers Don't Take Credit Cards


There’s a storm a brewin’.

Mike the Virtual Yooper is visiting, well, sorta, as he stayed here Thursday night and left for Podcamp Toronto on Friday. He comes back Sunday, leaves for home Monday, weather permitting.

The break week was eventful. Jon spilled a Pepsi on his computer and subsequently wrecked it. A new one will serve as his 18th birthday present.

Isabelle and I are (weather permitting) going to a thing tomorrow. Because of this, Isabelle wants me to wear a jacket.

Isabelle has been doing lots of cool stuff, and she updates all of us about it.

Episode 255 - Strata of Snowbanks


So, the crazy cold is over.

However, the crazy amount of snow is here as you can see in the picture.

Our neighbour, Doug, snowblowed our driveway yesterday, he shall receive the Order of Lenin for this!

Isabelle was in Toronto being the rural juror. She stayed at a cool hipster boutique hotel.

There was, sadly, a kid killed by her father this week in Toronto. There was an Amber Alert about it. SOME PEOPLE GOT UPSET BY THIS BECAUSE IT DISRUPTED THEIR SLEEP! The technical term for people like this is ‘asshole’.

Remember when you were a kid and you dug tunnels into snowbanks? That was probably not that safe when you think about it.
