New job!

On Tuesday this week I rejoined BMO after a short hiatus, moving from operations to the finance department. Specifically I will be tracking and helping to coordinate the technology development budget: all of the money BMO spends on projects. So far, so good… A lot to learn! BIG thanks to everyone who helped me with […]


Feast of the Dedication, SMM, 2010

Vandalism in Toronto

The news reports are full of pictures of burning police cars, and the streets full of broken glass. It’s depressing, but Stephen Harper just made his case for the $1B security bill. Doesn’t it seem like security has a disproportionate cost, though? Let’s review the damage: no major injuries, some broken windows, four or five […]

6 wonderful years!

Today is my 6th wedding anniversary. I am the luckiest man alive, for many reasons, but here is some very specific proof:

Summer heat

Spring is over, and summer is now unofficially here: the morning was hot (19 at the moment) and the day’s getting hotter (high of 31!). To celebrate, the TTC’s maintenance staff staged an illegal and unannounced strike this morning, so we got to walk to work. What a jolly time. Anne and I have had […]
