Dammit. I wasted so much time on Sunday ironing shirts unnecessarily. Thanks, Obama God. 
The world will end on Wednesday. That's tomorrow. With fire. By God. You've been warned.

Well, I had a couple of requests to post updates for the home-made samurai armour, so here's one. It is, admittedly, not the most exciting shot ever, but there it is. I wanted to test out different lacing patterns, to see which one the boys wanted on their set. Turns out the X's are the way to go.

I promised the boys that I would make them samurai armour for Halloween this year.

What. The. Heck. Was. I. Thinking.

Well hello again, Ottawa. We must stop meeting this way.

This time, I'm in town for a proper visit - an hour and a half before boarding. What should I see first - the magazine store, the men's room, or the water fountain?

What do you think of my swanky new wallet?

My roughly 1-year old wallet spontaneously erupted into its component pieces last night, so I channeled my inner craftsman to develop this waterproof, lightweight, minimalist beauty.

Note: I will trade this masterpiece for a traditional, clunky old wallet, if you must have this one for yourself.

It would pair well with the exclusive drunk tank personal possession bag.

Check it out guys - we're doing our part at getting IT recognized as being a revenue driver instead of a cost center. Seems to me that it's high time IT was pulled out of the basement and into the boardroom.
Information Technology isn't (or doesn't have to be) a cost center any more. Check out our article in +Business in Vancouver on recognizing and leveraging the role IT can play in decision-making, and ultimately, driving revenue!

Thanks +Chris Karpenchuk! It seems surprising that this message even needs to be'd think it would be a matter of course by now.

Lunchtime! What's in the menu? A Lilliputian cup of KD and a side of bitter disappointment.

(I didn't notice the 'snack' designation in the store.)

Hearing the phrase Kraft Dinner in the States is one of the quickest ways to realize that you are in the presence of a Canadian.

This was the best damned coconut pineapple Hefeweizen I've ever had.

Admittedly, it's the only coconut pineapple Hefeweizen I've ever had, but it was pretty good nevertheless.

Tree Brewing makes one that is also really good, minus the coconut. I wasn't expecting to like that one either.

Just got a surprise visit from a team I've been working with over the past few months (vendors), and they dropped in to check out our new office...with about 50 pounds of Belgian waffles. 

I guarantee my teeth are going to have fallen out by the time I'm wrapping up here today.

Stephen, but only if I'm in trouble.
Mostly harmless
About me:
Canadian, through and through. I'm a Vancouver resident now, but I've lived in 5 provinces, and grew up in the suburbs of Toronto. I'm a lover of the great outdoors (mountain biker, hiker, backpacker and camper), a technology nut, gaming geek, a socialist-to-liberal-minded bleeding heart. I'm an unapologetic idealist, treehugger enviro-weenie atheist. On the work side of things, I do communications, business development, project management, marketing (sort of), and procurement (sort of). I am an expert in the recruitment industry and employment - particularly in the Vancouver IT market. I'm husband, a dad, and the BFF to the world's most awesome dog.  If you're in to the whole Myers Briggs thing, I'm INFP or INFJ, depending on the day.

My schtick:
I try to be as friendly as possible, although that friendliness may depend on the amount of coffee I've had if you're catching me in the morning. 

My future-friend engagement guarantee:
If you engage with me, I will reply. If you add me without reaching out, then it's great to have you along for the ride, but the chances are I probably won't add you back until we've had a chance to say hello. Meeting new people is awesome, right?

Where to stick me:
If you're thinking of adding me to a circle, I'd suggest: 
  • Hiking/biking/the great outdoors
  • Information Technology/gadgets/gaming
  • Employment/job hunting tips/career guide
  • Sustainability/enviro-greeniness
  • Human rights/humanity/I'm a human
  • Vancouver/BC/Canada
  • Tattoos and the relevant subcultures
  • Art, music & photography (appreciation)
  • Debate club, but only, and ALWAYS respectful. I have no time for trolls.
  • Atheism, rationalism, humanism
  • Business/business communications/communications/writing
  • Social Media
I'm not a puritan, and I appreciate well-placed salty language, and my jimmies remain unrustled at the sight of nudity. I love a good debate, and I appreciate contrasting opinions, and am a strong proponent of free speech, 


I have no time for disrespectful or rude people. If you get heated, I get it - I do too - but if you can't avoid mud-slinging or name-calling, I'm out. I'm here to share interests and conversation - the second a debate devolves into personal attacks is the second I pull the chute.

And that's it - pretty easy, right? Right. Looking forward to talking with you!
Bragging rights
If the robot that keeps calling me is to be believed, I've recently won several free night stays at select Marriott Hotels. Lucky me!
