  • On @CBCEarlyEdition the BCLibs are accusing the NDP of being socialists, and BCNDP are blaming the global recession on the Libs. #bcpoli #
  • 1st day riding in "summer gear". Of course, this means the panniers are overflowing w/ "rain gear" and "winter gear". Just in case. #bikeyvr #
  • Drinking water out of my new @scienceworldca beaker/mug. It feels so wrong, and the lab safety guy is giving me the stink-eye. #ForScience #
  • Dear Alberta, thank you for surprising me. #abvotes #
  • .@tjrossignol I guess that it's extra-curricular. Despite taking place during school hours. And targeting students' educational well-being. #
  • RT @IanAMartin: @604Heather Golly. Well, I'll try to grip it firmly then. #
  • Oh, so the pollsters were right, but people changed their minds at the last minute. I see. #unlikely #abvote @CBCEarlyEdition #
  • Ran the boy for almost 3 hrs last night, kept him up for an hour past his bedtime & was rewarded with an extra 15 minutes of sleep #dadcamp #
  • It always amuses me when politicians call @cbcstephenquinn "Steve". I swear I can hear teeth grinding in the background. @CBCEarlyEdition #
  • Filed under "Pick Your Battles": Q wanted me to make him a full lunch for preschool today. Which ends before lunchtime. #
  • Passive-aggressive sign in the floor's men's washroom. http://t.co/eXjGrsaX #
  • Grrr. The Shaw Gateway/Portal is deleting shows we haven't watched despite not being anywhere near capacity. What gives @shawhelp!? #
  • Q: Robots need crayons too. They want to colour with blue. #SongsRedoneByPreschoolers #
  • The Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition (@MetroVanCycle) is now "HUB: Your Cycling Connection" http://t.co/LukQo1nl #bikeyvr #
  • That doesn't exactly roll of the tongue, does it? Also, sadly, their website is broken the day after launch. Huh? /shrug #
  • So the Terracotta Warriors have escaped from the Sun Yat-Sen Garden and are invading the rest of Vancouver? DON'T BLINK! #yvr #

  • So, looks like we'll be in Newfoundland in early July for my sister's wedding. Any family friendly events happening around that time? #
  • โ€œ@LindsayDianne: Note that if you tweet racism, I unfollow you.โ€ Yup. Also, blatant hatred. #
  • According for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the "Living Wage" family income for a family of 4 in Metro Vancouver is $69,670 #
  • That's the minimum income to provide the bare essentials. Sobering. See http://t.co/qZqlBvC5 (h/t @CBCEarlyEdition) #
  • For reference, according to StatsCan, the median family income in Vancouver was $67,550 in 2009. http://t.co/kGD8eGtd (ie, $2k less) #
  • Parents: 50% off family admission to Maplewood Farms on Groupon today: http://t.co/HSDeZPxu #yvr #
  • Really Shaw? This is getting ridiculous. Had to reboot Gateway this morning … and an hour later it's died again. Frustrating. @shawhelp #
  • Inevitably every year homes on floodplains are flooded. Why are we continuing to spend public money on this? They're on FLOODPLAINS! #
  • Ouch โ€œ@smuttysteff: Wept for Playhouse closing; reopened for God of Carnage. Opening night? Epic fail. http://t.co/IWpg5iXsโ€ #yvr #theatre #
  • .@smuttysteff No, ouch at the fail, and @marshalederman's brutally honest article. #
  • Sigh. Airfare to go to my sister's wedding this summer? $3700. #
  • For S&G I checked Vancouver <-> London, UK for same time period. $3400. That's $300 less than Vancouver <-> Halifax, NS. Awesome. #
  • RT @ScarletSatin: Lest we forget the Fringe winner Little Orange Man, also losing out for next season. Hoping 4 a happy ending #theatre #yvr #
  • .@adrianecarr coming up on CBC to say why she thinks people should be able to opt out of hydro "Smart Meters". Get your tinfoil hats. #otc #
  • OMG. She cited HEALTH EFFECTS. #smartmeters #otc #
  • .@adrianecarr You've just guaranteed that I'll never vote for you again. You're hyping woo and not science. Extremely disappointed. #
  • Smart Meters. "Possible carcinogen" "Same list as lead". OMG. I can't believe she's spouting this nonsense. #OTC #
  • .@adiranecarr At my home there are more than 30 WiFi networks, excluding my own. These are more powerful than the Smart Meters. #
  • .@adrianecarr How do you explain that MILLIONS of people don't get sick from ambient wifi? There should be an epidemic! #
  • Folks. WiFi is ubiquitous in cities. If it made people sick, there'd be an epidemic. There ISN'T. Same technology in Smart Meters. #
  • .@DanielOong Wireless transmitters ARE regulated! They are tightly controlled by both Health Canada and Industry Canada. #
  • It started raining in Pt Grey. OMG IT'S THE CHEMTRAILS! #woo #
  • "It could be worse." -beat- "It's worse!" "There's something alive in here!" #FamilyMovieNight #
  • I know, don't feed the trolls BUT … #
  • Hahahahahaha โ€œ@SmartMetersSuck: @AnthonyFloyd That's exactly what #smartmeters are. An IARC Class 2B carcinogen. You're writing nonsense.โ€ #
  • RT @oakridge604: What's the best store in Vancouver for used bikes? Want to get a proper bike for the kid and myself too. #bikeyvr #
  • Words a parent doesn't want to hear: "Slingshot the angry tractor!" #
  • .@ironring1 Normally it's an angry bird in the slingshot. This was a dramatic reenactment with a toy tractor. #
  • There are two young muggles sitting on a bench 2 m from a cache I want to FTF :( #
  • Went for it anyway. FTF, barely. Another geocacher pulled up just as I was signing the log. Didn't look at the muggles, they didn't ask. #
  • 39 forever. Happy Birthday @_Cuddlefish_ ! #
  • Yes, that IS #sickboy on a bike way up there @ Vancouver Fairview Slopes http://t.co/NAMYi0Ws #
  • Retrieving the last cache of the day http://t.co/5mAEqJTP #
  • Found 13 geocaches on our bikes this afternoon. A great way to spend an afternoon. So happy that @aidanfloyd was able to ride his today! #
  • Wow. "Ruby Gloom" has the best intro music to a kids show that I've heard in a really long time. #netflixFTW #
  • Just spotted the @raspberrykids van squeezing down our alley. I don't think they saw us waving. :) #
  • Tonight's Kitsilano.ca post practically wrote itself. I like those sorts of posts. #
