This May (man I am still so far behind in this blogging thing this summer) Meg and I used up some Aeroplan points and flew out to Prince Edward Island for the long weekend. The trip was important for a couple of reasons, first and foremost, it gave Meg and I a chance to get out and see my grandparents who weren't able to make it our wedding in October. A close second was a chance to visit with the rest of my relatives who for various reasons weren't able to make it. Finally, it gave Meg and I chance to enjoy a long weekend away :)
The newspaper/journalism industry is in an upheaval with the ongoing steady erosion of advertising revenues (some of which are moving to the Internet) and the destruction of classified revenues which have all moved online (eBay, Craiglist, Kijiji, you name your own online classifieds provider).
Man, painting sucks. Meg and I spent our four day Easter weekend putting a "refresher" coat of paint on the rooms in our house. It is of course a tragic use of four days off in the row, but it will help our social lives this summer.
Those who attended our wedding in the fall will probably remember that I promised Meg in our wedding vows that I would take Salsa with her. Well, we're almost done our first class, one lesson to go next Wednesday. It's gone pretty well, and I almost feel coordinated doing some of the steps.
Continuing on the theme of enjoying the winter a little more, last weekend Meg, some of her friends and I ventured out for the evening to the Blacksheep Inn (worst website ever). The Blacksheep is located in Wakefield, QC, a little less than a half hour drive north of Ottawa.
Wow, it's nearly the middle of February already, the year is an eighth over. Winter has been passing by a little faster since Christmas as I've taken up a new activity. Well, I suppose I've done it before, back when I was in high school I think, and I did it a couple of times in 2006 with rentals.
