Day 776
People of the internet, a fish!
A fish worth keeping!
Had a fun afternoon at Ally’s sister’s place swimming and fishing and finally caught a big smallmouth bass. Ally’s dad did the filet and it’s currently sitting in the fridge for lunch tomorrow.
Today I caught a fish and kept it.

Day 776

People of the internet, the Fan Expo!

Yesterday I went down to Toronto to chill with my buddy Cam, after a brief walk in the heat we made it down to the Fan Expo, or as Cam called it, “Nerd Mecca”.

It was absolutely packed, strangely the costumes and cosplay didn’t seem to be as prevalent this year but there were definitely more people. We perused all the vendors and stands then made it up to the autograph tables to check out who was there.

Elijah Wood had a short line (has it been that long since Lord of the Rings?) so I definitely grabbed his autograph. I don’t think he was too thrilled to be there, but what can you do.

I think we got more star action just walking around, Hulk Hogan walked by a few times near us, I saw Ted Raimi go by with his camera and we ate sushi just a few steps away from Dave Bautista (who was also enjoying some sushi) which was really cool.

When we were done we grabbed dinner and then the rest of the evening involved vodka and Team Fortress 2.

Yesterday I went to the Fan Expo.

Day 775
People of the internet, Wonderland!
Yesterday my girlfriend surprised me with a fun day full of roller coasters and rides! We hit up Leviathan (which was huge!), Drop Zone, Wild Beast, Thunder Run, Wind Seeker and Wonder Mountain’s Guardian. We baked in the sun, ate BeaverTails for lunch and had a blast.
Best birthday ever.
Yesterday we went to Canada’s Wonderland.

Day 773
People of the internet, the Ice Bucket Challenge.
Well, I thought that it I was going to make it without being nominated but yesterday at work my name was called. And because I’m a bit late to the whole thing I decided to go with something a bit different.
It’s the Rice Bucket Challenge. It’s caught on big in India and I thought instead of pouring water over my head I’d collect a bucket of rice and donate it to my local food bank.
Video to come soon!
Today I did the Rice Bucket Challenge and donated to the Kawartha Food Share.

Day 772
People of the internet, geocaching.
My sister and I took Bender for a hike today through Jackson’s Park and I brought along two small geocaches I’ve been meaning to hide for a while. We hiked through the brush and found some nifty spots to store them away, so here’s hoping they get approved on Geocaching.com!
We tried to find a few but unfortunately the spots we came across were either really well hidden or needing maintenance. Next time…
Today I hid a few new geocaches in Jackson Park.

Day 772

People of the internet, some little LEGO sets.

I was doing the grocery shopping and came across these little LEGO City sets, so of course…I picked them up.

For $9 each you can’t complain, for the Surfer Rescue you get two minifigs and a freaking shark, and for the Police ATV I love the disgruntled face print on the criminal. It’s awesome.

Today I found some small LEGO City sets at the grocery store.

Day 772
People of the internet, Bender.
So I’m working on the video of the bike ride but unfortunately the new iMovie is just a complete piece of junk. I’ve found the old version on the iMac and might be doing all my video work back on it.
So stay tuned for a late video update sometime this week.
In the meantime we have Bender, my sister’s dog. He’s a massive lab and he and my sister are going to be staying at my place up here for the next two months!
Hopefully we’ll find some time to do some fun things around here and I can take Bender for a few long runs or good hikes. Should be good!
Today I played with Bender in the backyard.

Day 770

People of the internet, my legs are killing me.

Got up bright at early at 11am this morning to meet up with Dan for coffee, then strapped on the headphones and the GoPro and biked all the way to the Omemee rail bridge.

Man, was it a hot one.

It’s a slow incline on the way there so it took me about an hour to get out there, then maybe 45 minutes to get back.

But the view was totally worth it, I love how the valley just drops out from underneath you. Really cool spot and a perfect day for it.

Today I went on a 24K bike ride to the Omemee rail bridge and back.

Day 769
People of the internet, the garden.
One nice thing about this really rainy and gloomy summer is that I haven’t had to water the plants all that often.
Today the lilies really started to bloom nicely.

Day 768
People of the internet, eating a fish.
It was a catch from Sunday that I had carefully frozen in the freezer and slowly thawed this morning. I did a quick filet, fry and served it up with some sliced tomatoes with fried potatoes and pepper.
Today I fileted, fried and ate a fish I caught.

Day 764
People of the internet, a new camera.
This time it’s a Kodak Brownie 8mm movie camera! My parents found it at an antique store and surprised me this weekend with an early birthday present.
So I’m going to see if I can find some 8mm reels and a place that will develop it all and put this old thing to work.
This weekend I got a 1950’s Kodak Brownie 8mm camera from my folks.
