Near the end of this evening, I was afflicted with some bad gas. I don’t feel the need to poop. It’s just a continuous stream of passing wind. It also smells worse than usual. I’m not sure I should wait longer to see if I need to poop or if I should just go to bed. Now I’m afraid I might shart.


Thank the maker it’s Friday and the weekend is almost here. Lyft and Uber got approved to operate in the greater Vancouver area today. That was probably the best news I heard all week. I downloaded the Lyft app and got it all setup. It might be just hearsay but the rumour is Lyft is slightly ahead of Uber in being ready to deploy their drivers in Vancouver. If all goes well, people could be using Lyft in Vancouver in a matter of months.


Whatever I had for dinner tonight, it did not sit well with me. I had three instances of watery poops this evening at home. I am very glad I was at home when I was struck by this malady. The first instance came upon me quite quickly and there was little time before things became urgent.

I feel much better now but the evening’s events have left me feeling a bit dehydrated and thirsty. I believe several glasses of hot water are in order. Alright, thanks for reading about me pooping tonight.


After last week’s deep freeze, it was a normal weekend in the greater Vancouver area. There was rain and the temperatures were well above freezing, almost in the double-digits. While not great weather, at least it was familiar to most people in the city. I think a lot of people would settle for grey and rainy rather than snow and bone-chilling cold.

The whole week will be a typical Vancouver winter week, more rain and temperatures near 10 degrees Celsius. I don’t mind at all.


Between my lingering cold, the freezing weather, the snow, and the amount of work I have, it’s been a long week. It’s not even over yet! There’s still Friday to go! Time used to fly by but it seems like this month had just dragged on forever.

I’m going to bed now.


The knew from the second I woke up that today was not going to be a good day for a lot of people. It was very quiet when I woke up, that quiet that can only happen when a thick layer of snow on the ground absorbs all the sound. Through the slits in my blinds all I could see was white. It had snowed a lot overnight.

Roads, sidewalks, buses, cars, and trains were a mess all day, especially in the morning. My co-workers stayed at home and worked from there. Some brave, possibly foolish people tried to actually get to work. Some of them had their commutes tripled in time. Some had their cars get stuck along the way. The cafeteria closed early because barely any people were there and it didn’t make sense for all the staff to stick around for a hellish commute home. Eventually everyone at the studio got sent home early because it started to snow again in the late afternoon.

There is a potential for a small snowfall overnight but nothing like last night. It’s already much warmer now than 24 hour ago. It’s hovering around freezing now, which seems balmy compared to the -14 windchill of yesterday. I am preparing to go to work tomorrow.


When I stepped outside to go home from work this evening, the temperatures were about -7 degrees Celsius with a windchill of -14. I don’t think I’ve felt so cold in Vancouver before. I was only outside for at most ten minutes before my bus arrived but I was chilled to the bone by that time. I was honestly amazed at how cold it was.

After I arrived home to a freezing apartment, I put one of my thermometers near one of my living room windows. It currently reads 5 degrees right now. That is without any heat on. That’s pretty cold. Do not fear, I have my heat on in my bedroom. It would stupid not to in these temperatures.

The fun doesn’t end here. It’s supposed to snow overnight with accumulations of 10 to 15 cm by morning. I can’t wait to see what the commute will be like tomorrow.


It’s currently hovering around -7 degrees Celsius and it’s damn cold for Vancouver. It usually never gets this cold around here. With the wind chill, we’re looking at around -14 tonight and tomorrow morning. I think I’m well enough to go to work tomorrow but man, the bone-chilling cold is going to make it a harsh morning.

More snow is going to be in the forecast tomorrow night as well!


I caught a cold near the end of last week and I started feeling its effects late Thursday evening. Things were still manageable on Friday and I was able to get to work but it all went downhill pretty quickly after I got home that day. My weekend was somewhat miserable, dealing with nasal congestion and a slight cough. It did not help that it’s currently freezing in the great Vancouver area. It seemed like a bad idea to try to fight a cold while in a freezing apartment, so I reluctantly turned on the heat.

I’m still feeling fairly awful, so coupled with the considerable snowfall that doused the city tonight, it’s looking like I’ll be taking a sick day tomorrow.
