Headlines

Here are a few things* that caught my eye so far this week:

Windowless planes are coming, and they look amazing

I would NOT do well with this. Sky all around me? Do I have to remind you of my fear of heights? It's bad enough that the onus is on me to listen for discrepancies in the engine noise while flying, now I have no way of seeing if the wings are still attached??

10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman [VIDEO]

The comments on this are THE WORST.

The Ebola Wars

Really interesting (and long!) article on how genomics research can help contain the outbreak. The author does a good job of explaining complicated science AND he personalizes it with interesting anecdotes relating to the outbreak.

Coach Shares Are Plunging — Here Are 3 Reasons The Company Is In Trouble

As much as I love my nude pumps I bought from Coach last Spring, whenever I travel overseas, I NEVER see a Coach handbag.

John Oliver rips into Big Sugar's efforts to hide its role in the obesity epidemic [VIDEO]

I heart John Oliver. That is all.

Every now and then, you need a Sunday Funday.


It's the best time to explore some local pubs, catch up with friends and learn how to play a proper game of pool.





Places visited:

The St. Regis (obvz)
Tap and Barrel Canada Place
Winking Judge
Red Card
London Bar
Keefer Bar
Rodney\s Gastown

My favourite drink of the day: 

Keefar Bar's version of a margarita. I do love my tequila.

Sunday Fundays are one of my favourite activities. It's right up there with Happy Hour-ing. Can't wait for the next one!

Reifel Bird Sanctuary


A couple of weeks ago, I visited the Reifel Bird Sanctuary (which we all agreed was NOT the best name for a bird sanctuary) out in Ladner.


I really never thought I would be so enthralled with bird-watching! I loved feeding the ducks, spotting chick-a-dees and looking out at FORTY-TWO cranes from the tower. Not to mention the Russian Snow Geese that are visiting for the Winter.


I definitely want to go back in the Winter to try and spot some owls.

Walking the entire loop of the sanctuary takes about an hour -- depending how often you stop. It's a great place to bring kids and it's even stroller-friendly. Bonus: on the drive out, there are plenty of local farms selling their produce and a winery that does tastings!

Case of the Giggles

This has been circulated on every social media platform in the past few days, but I thought I'd still share it because it made me laugh HARD after an incredibly loooong day. Enjoy!
