8r4d It was rain-snowing this morning downtown and we got a rainbow... in November. The simulation is officially glitching.

Coding Chair
I've been feeding my coding hunger lately and I propped up some old gaming library stuff that I wrote a few years ago, updating it as a standalone puzzle game. It's now a little crossword clue type game posted at the link below. Each day it randomly creates a new puzzle to solve. Five words, scrambled into bite-sized chunks, and you need to build the words and try to solve all five to win. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Stantec Tower
8r4d And not that this view from my office is ever really bad, but at 730am it is pretty glorious seeing the tallest towers in the city alive and all lit.

Downtown YEG
8r4d I don't like the lack of daylight during this deepest part of the equinox adjacent season, but I do like walking through downtown at 730am when everything is glowing.

Sketching Desk
squwetchy I may have posted this sketch before from #newyork, but I wrote a short #blog post to accompany it now. New York was really eye opening from an #urbansketching perspective, giving me a lot of good chances to draw on location and also do so with limited tools and time.

Home
8r4d Now that vacation is over, the holiday season is upon us, and with the lovely warm(ish) weather today I hung the #christmas lights up on the house. I'm not the first on the block but officially I think I'll leave them dark until December first.

Rec Center
8r4d Sunday Runday? Almost. My days of confinement to the track and treadmill at the rec center might be ending soon. The physiotherapy efforts to rehab my #kneehab are improving my prospects of running outdoors again soon. I mean, that ice and #snow are gonna be serious factors to consider, but maybe when those sidewalks are a little more clear I'll be a little less injured.

Beijing Beijing
8r4d Stuffed after a full afternoon and evening out celebrating the wedding of one of my running crew and his new bride, followed by a full multi-course Chinese dinner with every kind of seafood imaginable. None of us will need to eat for a week!

Back Home
squwetchy One of the small handful of souvenirs I brought home from #newyork was a #sketchbook. How exciting, you muse sarcastically. But this particular leather-bound Italian-made journal came from the gift shop at the New York Public Library and bears an authentic NYC #library stamp embossed on the cover. Even empty it is a thing of beauty and quality and as soon as I figure out what I plan to draw in it, it will likely get even more awesome.

At Home Again
If you enjoy reading accounts of travel then it's really too bad that I'm not going to post scans of my paper travel journal anywhere anytime soon. On the other hand, I started jotting down some thoughts over at my adventures blog, starting with a post I wrote literally from my phone while on layover at the Toronto airport on our way home:
