BREAK THE WAVE

I’m about to go to bed and it’s 27 degrees Celsius in my bedroom. I gotta admit this weather has been great, even if it’s been a tad on the hot side but I wasn’t too disappointed to see the heat wave will end near the end of this week.

FREE TOP

so pink

I went out for dinner with my parents this evening. When I arrived home, I saw this article of clothing on the ground in my parking garage. It was very easy to spot since it was pink and close to where the elevators are. It doesn’t look like a bra. It’s a swimsuit top of some sort. It seems like a “C” cup. The picture above makes it difficult to tell since there’s no reference for scale. I didn’t really think about picking it up since I have no real use for a swimsuit top. I wonder how it got there. Did it fall out of a bag? Or was someone wearing it and it just fell off suddenly?

MAIL DISAPPOINTMENT

I went to the post office today to pick up my mystery package. It turned out to be literally an empty box. I’m switching ISPs for my parents and Telus mailed me an empty box so that I can return their modem to them. What a disappointment.

MAIL SURPRISE

I checked my mail this evening and I had a delivery notice from Canada Post in my mailbox. I’m not expecting a package, so I don’t know what it could be. I’m excited! I’ll pick it up before going to work tomorrow. I’ll report back with what it is.

HEAT WARNING

There is a heat warning being issued by Environment Canada for the greater Vancouver area. Temperatures will be close to 30 degrees Celsius during the day for several straight days, into next Monday. Incredible!

It was 28 degrees in my bedroom earlier this evening. It’s down to 25 now, so I think I’ll be able to sleep. I’m glad I get to work inside an air-conditioned building.

BUSY WEEKEND

I had the most busy weekend. This was mostly a wedding weekend. On Friday, I had dinner with friends of the bride and groom. My friend of over twenty years was the groom. It was nice to meet some of his other friends that live out of town. On Saturday, I went to the North Van quay to check out the sights and sounds, and to get some food. In the evening, I went to a co-worker’s BBQ. There were lots of work people there. It was a lot of fun.

On Sunday, was the actual wedding, so there was lots of wedding stuff. I just got home about an hour ago. The weekend was fun and busy but I’m looking forward to relaxing more next weekend.

SIGGRAPH 2018

SIGGRAPH is coming to Vancouver once again in August. This is just the third time the main conference has been held outside of the U.S. and each time it’s been in Vancouver. I just registered for my free and ghetto “exhibits only” pass but that gets me into the convention centre and is my ticket to free swag. I can’t wait to go!

HEAT SHIELD

We’re in a bit of a heat wave here in the greater Vancouver area. My apartment faces sorta north-west so I get direct sunlight towards the end of the day, late afternoon to early evening. That’s when my place heats up the most. When I arrived back home from work this evening, it was about 6:30pm and the sun had already been heating up my apartment. It was hot and stuffy. I decided to close all my blinds in my living room.

That actually made quite a difference. The rest of the evening wasn’t as warm and I could feel my living room cool down. Once the sun set, I opened my blinds again. Sure, I didn’t see the lovely pink sky as the sun went down but at least it was cool.
