Stuff: Best Week in Ages

This has been the best week in ages.

Monday: I got to take a friend out cycling. I love biking around Toronto, but unfortunately Lori's not an experienced enough cyclist to keep up with me, so most of the time I ride solo. Monday, though, I managed to drag a friend across 23 km of Toronto trails.

Wednesday: More cycling. I completed my first ever century: a 100 km tour of Toronto (105km to be exact).

I didn't take any photos, but there were times I wished I had had the camera. Among the sights:

  • A feral cat eating by the side of the path
  • A woodchuck doing likewise, down a way from the cat
  • A man hand-feeding a red-headed woodpecker
  • Two girls hand-feeding a squirrel

I didn't consider 'til now how all of these involved animals eating...

Thursday: In spite of being a little (well, very) stiff after my big tour, I accepted a job at Algorithmics! I am no longer unemployed!

I start on September 5th at one of the Top 100 Employers in Canada.

What's the word? Oh, right: Woot!
