Did anyone get the license number of the 18 wheeler that virus was driving when it hit me? They talk about 20 year storms, I'm crawling out of the aftermath of a 20 year virus. The first couple of weeks were pretty standard. A snot monster took up residence in my head and invited his buddy, hacking cough. Manageable, though annoying. This last week I've been really, really tired and had a headache behind my eyes that refused to go away. I've slept a lot, and haven't been able to do much when I've been awake.

Laurie tells her side of our Northern Voice Story in a recent blog post. She has a better gift of narrative than I do: The small world of blogging... at Northern Voice (this is for Sylvia)

Every Friday a group named BIFF gets together at a North Vancouver restaurant to enjoy each other's company and some aspect of science fiction, fantasy, gaming, or anime, or to simply talk. You'll find me there most Friday nights. This week the monster god father, Stan Hyde, talked about modeling, monsters and the Monster Attack Team - Canada.

Calling all Battlestar Galactica fans! The season finale is soon upon us. The 13th Colony, Vancouver's Battlestar Galactica Fan Club, is having a dinner viewing of the season finale. From the website: Our location is 80s Restaurant in North Vancouver. They have a separate area of the restaurant (turn right at the top of the stairs) with a large projection screen.

This is view off my balcony on an overcast day in the middle of March at 7pm - Yah, baby! Let there be light! I'm really liking early daylight savings time. It wouldn't hurt my feelings to keep the hour shifted to the end of the day all year round.

Finally made it out to my first Graphic Design Meetup of 2007. As usual, a very fun and interesting evening at the Waazubee Café on Commercial. The organizer, Steven Luscher, usually has a "twist" for the evening. Which is to say some sort of organized activity. Tonight's was graphic design charades. I still can't believe someone got CMYK.

Thank God for visitors, it's the only time I get motivated beyond the basic cleaning regime! That's not the only reason. I pretty much only get visitors I like. My nephew, pictured right, and brother-in-law are down for a hockey tournament in Mission. They came down a day early and spent the night at my place, did some business Friday, then headed for the tournament Friday night. After this blog entry, I'm surprised my sister isn't here as well, though based on last paragraph here, one wonders what the "boys" will be going home to.

More minor hockey news from Mission: the Vernon Coyotes took gold! There was a game at 7:45am this morning I took a pass on. I love my nephew, but there are limits. They won the game, which put them in the final playoff for gold against Burnaby. Said final game was at a much more civilized 3:30pm. The game was all the more anticipated because they had lost to Burnaby in their first game of the series.
