I’ve wanted one of these for a long time and now I have it!

Ha! Jealous?

(Don’t worry, you can get one here or here.)

Road Trip!

April 20, 2011 Leave a comment

It’s been awhile since I’ve taken a real vacation. I mean, I love going home for Christmas but those trips always end up being more tiring than work; what with trying to see as many people as you can in the few short days you are home, etc, etc, etc.

But I’m doing something different this time around. Me and the GF are headed on a road trip! From Calgary to Vancouver, with a few stops along they way, checking out the awesome Canadian wilderness.

So if you know of any hotspots to check out in Victoria/Vancouver/Kelowna, let me know!

I’ll also be tweeting the entire time, so be sure to start following me on Twitter to hear how things are going!

Also, my ability to write science-related posts will be quite limited for the next 10-11 days. But fear not!

I’ve prepared a special treat for you all. A pre-written post will go active every day at Noon MDT for the next 10 days.

You guessed it…another Top 10 list! What is the topic this time? You’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out.

Happy Trails!

Why I Was Almost Late for Work Today

Oh xkcd. How is it that you are so intuitive to my daily life?

Sometimes in the morning I just don’t move very fast.

Now to be fair, I did go to the gym around 6:30, showered and then sat at the computer to check emails and so forth. Then of course I check on my blog and see the comments to my recent post about water fluoridation in Calgary.

I just find it really interesting that I simply can’t help myself. I HAVE to immediately check people’s references, quotes and basically do fact checking. It sounds so unexciting, yet I just couldn’t wait until after work to do it.

Luckily though, a road along my bus route which was closed, opened today and made traffic run much smoother. Couple that with the bus arriving just as I walk up to my bus stop, and I actually got to work earlier than usual, despite leaving later than I should have.

I guess the scientific gods (?) were smiling upon me today.

Moving!

I hate moving. I’ve moved 6 times in as many years, and it seems to get more annoying each time.

And here I am preparing to move again. The apartment I have now has grown to small, and I need to go out and find some more space.

That being said, I will be pretty busy the next few weeks. Gotta find the apartment, pack up all our stuff, move it. Guuuuuhhhhh.

Anyone have a pick up truck I can borrow?

So you may notice I’m only posting a couple of times a week for the next little while. Hopefully by mid-November I will be back to full form. I won’t be going away completely, but posts will be limited.

So don’t go deleting your Google Reader subscriptions just yet :)

Who Do I Blog Like?

September 12, 2010 Leave a comment

I read about this website which analyzes the text of your blog on Blag Hag and decided it would be fun to do my blog. Here are my results:

Text Analysis:

aquantumofknowledge.wordpress.com is probably written by a male somewhere between 66-100 years old. The writing style is personal and upset most of the time.

Hmm…apparently I’m an old man at heart (being only 25).

Am I really upset most of the time? Yeah ok.

I am happy with the balance between personal and academic content. But 66-100 years old? Really?

If you have a blog you should give this a try. What are your results?
