December 18, 2014. Another day indoors playing Civ as I continue to recover from my dental operation. This is Polly, cleaning, and in the background, cleaning supplies.

December 17, 2014. There's nothing better than having a cat (or four) around when you're under the weather. This is Lexi, who still hasn't figured out how to be a demure adult cat. (And me, I stayed in an played Civ all day, between helpings of soup and codeine painkillers).

Where's Waldo

December 16, 2014. The ceiling at the dentist. It's not a very good image, because it's washed out by the light and taken while I'm in the process of getting a gingival transplant. But there's a story behind this image. I've said many times that "knowing is recognizing" and "to know is to can't not know". The example I use is, "it's like finding Waldo. Once you find him, you can't unfind him." This is where that theory and this example comes from - the ceiling of my dentist's office.

Snow Squall

December 15, 2014. It was just a little snow squall, nothing that stayed on the ground, just enough to obscure the windshield. This is what remains of the bush in the centre of the parking lot at the office (it used to be a nice stand of forest) around noon as I drove out for my lunch-time coffee (and escape).

Waiting for Propane

December 14, 2014. A trip to Costco for soft foods (I have an encounter with the dentist coming up). This man glared at me for taking his picture - but then again, he did walk right into the shot as I was taking it, so I figure all is fair.

Mall Santa

December 13, 2014. The malls were wall-to-wall shoppers today (and traffic was ridiculous). We went to pick up a prescription and to replace a dead coffee machine. I like visiting malls during the December rush, not to buy things (I actually don't buy much in December at all) but because it's fun to watch all the people.

December 12, 2014. Moncton Miracles played tough defense today and were nailing the 3-point shots. This was easily their best game of the year, and the third quarter one of the best I've ever seen the team play as it built a 33 point lead and cruised in the 4th. Nice way to end the week.
