First 8K Race; Or “Where I get to go all green!”

After three years of seeing me run like one possessed, NPY started running for fitness and we did a 5K “fun run” together in October. Not satisfied with not knowing exactly how long it took us, I suggested we do another race… or a longer race. I originally wanted to do the 10K Sun Run…

Three Years

Somehow, time has passed such that NPY and I have made it to the three-year mark. Yes siree, three years ago, June 16 was a Friday and I dolled myself up (a rarity) for a tentatively made dinner date with with a boy that turned out to exceed all my expectations. And, I might add,…

wyn and NPY do the East Coast: Halifax

Yay, I’m back and it feels like I’ve had a second job this week uploading, captioning, tagging, and deliberating on photographs from a mere ten days spend on the Right, er, East Coast…. First off, you must know that NPY was along for the ride – and I do plan a crazy ride – and…

Surprise!

NPY surprised me arranging that we go to Seattle this weekend. It it is President’s Day on the Monday the 16th. Oh, and it’s Valentine’s Day on Saturday! All he did was book the hotel. I’m doing the rest. =P The following list is racing through my head like a ticker. Red Mango. P.F. Chang’s….

I was making fun of NPY on account of his Chinese dollar store slippers when he explained how he came to acquire them. Me: Those are such dorky slippers. You’re such a dork. Him: Do you know why I got them? It’s got your name on it. Me: Wha? It says… uhm… feng. Wha? Him:…

California Dreamin’

Not like I’m dreaming of going to California… I mean, I would… like, some aspect of the past weekend was like driving around in California… ugh, I think I left my brain in Osoyoos! I took a day off to spend a long weekend in Osoyoos (southern part of B.C.’s famed Okanagan wine-rich region, and…

Hard hittin’

In the deepest throes of heartbreak (nearly three years ago), I posted the lyrics to two of Moulann Chang’s songs, “When you turn away” and “Where did forever go?”. NPY says they are somewhat generic ballads but when they struck a chord so long ago, the emotion of the songs never leave me because they…

This time last year

I had this niggling feeling that I was running more last year than I have been this year. So I went through my logs and dug up the first half of last June and I was right: 10 runs in the first 17 days of last June and a mere 8 in the same time…

Currently reading: Marley & Me

A friend once likened his endearing black Lab to a child with diminished mental capacity. (He used more colourful terms, I’ll let you imagine it.) That is to say, Churchill, like many dogs, is very dependent and will not improve significantly with the years. I admired whole-heartedly his ability to balance school, a social life,…

After a season

Earlier this week, Mona and I paused amidst a conversation to remark how we’d never imagine ourselves talking about hockey! Then we continued, talking about our “home” teams, the Sens and the Canucks. My closest brush with hockey was when figure skating when we would share changing facilities with hockey player (girls). Stinky. My closest…
