OMG BBQ!!!1!

Our feet are getting a big workout over here; last time we had to populate our fridge with the basic supplies we could at least borrow someone else's car. And we aren't even considering picking stuff up from IKEA... I've applied for a ZipCar membership but it is taking them a while to get back to me.

One of the things we did pick up today was our fancy (to me) new BBQ. It was a mission to carry it back from the mall, but I think it has already proven to be worth it. Ignoring the delcious food that it cooks, take a look at the nice view I get while using it:

City on Fire

This is what greeted us out our window this morning as I was preparing to go to the grocery store to get breakfast supplies:

I ended up not making it to the grocery store... =P

Day 1

Greetings from Vancouver!

Tanya and I began our Vancouver adventure yesterday to a little of a rocky start. First, after spending so much time on the last minute preparations I didn't take too good care of myself and I'm feeling a little under the weather at the moment. Second, the rain/hail storm in Toronto caused Tanya to miss her flight and so I spent the first night in our new apartment on an air matress with no blankets or pillows.

Here is what our apartment looks like (so far) on the inside and out:

I just got back from the airport to pick up Tanya/Jazzy. The kitty was really pissed, but she seems to be coming around; looks like she just needed a good sleep.

Now we are off to get our new driver's licenses, health cards, ZipCard(s), etc.. Be sure to check out my Flickr photo stream as I'm going to try to start up my photo-a-day again (see the first one).

Toronto was too foggy to see for the last time.

We were approved for our apartment in the time it took to get to the airport. Hooray!

Just spent 6 hours building a new tool to realize that it already comes bundled with every system I use. #facepalm

Power is off in apartment. Time for errands.

Just spent another day neck deep in C++; it was oddly relaxing.
