Let's See if We Can Revive this Blog
Well, I suppose enough has happened since March of 2008 that I really should update this blog...if only to get one more post in before the end of 2008...which I believe would bring my yearly total up to about 5...which is quite pathetic. Nonetheless, better late than never.
Since it has been so long, I suppose I will just need to talk about recent stuff, as there is really no point in giving a blow-by-blow retelling of the last 8 months.
Well first and foremost (and the most exciting news if you ask me!), my lovely Kate has become a Canadian citizen. It has taken her over 4 years, probably over $3000 in fees/applications and a hell of a lot of stress but a few weeks ago she got sworn in as one of us.
Despite now having the right to vote, the right to run for office and the right to a Canadian passport, something tells me that longlegged Kate will always be English, with just a hint of Canadian. Very proud of you Babe.
Other news, we recently got back from New York City (my first time) and we had a ton of fun walking the city as tourists. I took Kate for her, um...21st birthday and all the photos can be seen (as usual) on our flickr page. This photo was my favourite as it was taken during a huge rain storm (seems like rain follows us everywhere after our Vancouver experience) in Central Park.In more travel news, we'll be heading to the UK this Friday for another fun holiday week or two with the in-laws. I honestly cannot wait to leave work on Friday, have a beer or two in the passenger's lobby and get Kate back on a plane home. Since leaving Vancouver it has been fantastic to see our family and friends again, but I would be lying if I said it hasn't been a stressful time looking for work, moving across the country, etc. So I think that kicking it back in Landbeach with my English parents (and John, Kate's bro) is just what the doctor ordered.
Which brings us to work and my new job. Now I say new, as it has happened since March, but I have actually been at this postion since August and have just now decided to get off my ass and blog about it. I am working as a producer/director for butterscotch.com . Butterscotch is an online video network designed for folks who find technology too techie. The site is a division of Tucows.com and I am lucky enough to work with some great people and some old friends. Andy Walker, Sean Carruthers and Amber Mac are all working on the project in various roles on a number of different shows including Lab Rats, The A-List, The Noob, Mr. Mobile (launching soon) , Miss Download, and On Deck. Please check them all out and feel free to give some feedback.
And finally, it appears hell has indeed frozen over and some how (at least for now) my Bruins are in first place in the Eastern Conference and are in second place in the NHL....absolute craziness. A friend recently asked me why I thought they were doing so well and I answered 'balanced scoring, solid D, fantastic goaltending and a ton of luck...all things that can dry up in a heartbeat'...so here's to a great 2009 and a big hope the B's can keep filling up the 'W' column.
