Me Finishing
It's been a while since I've updated. I normally have a few spare minutes at work, or in the evening to pump out a post, but recently I've been too busy. My weeknights are usually spent climbing, playing squash, at my art class, or hanging out with friends. Work has been really crazy as well, we're developing and testing a new event driven database model. So that's keeping me quite busy.

What have I been up to recently? Well one new thing that I mentioned is my drawing class I'm taking at Mohawk. It is a lot of fun so far, I really can't wait to see the improvements in my drawing. Next semester I think I'll be taking a watercolour painting class.

Sunday was the 30km offroad Squeezer bike race. I can't believe how much fun it was. The course was very challenging but this time my bike held up for the distance, and I finished in a respectable 494/1149, with a time of 1:54:56. My goal (without knowing anything about the course) was 2 hours, so I am very happy with my finish. I can't wait till next year to do it again, but faster!

Climbing season is fast approaching, the first competition (for fun, not on the tour) is on the 22nd of October. I'm probably not going to that one, but still, that's just over 3 weeks away, so I'm working on getting back into bouldering shape by climbing twice, (soon to be thrice) a week.

Holy cow! You're alive! Aside from seeing you, like, all the damn time, I would not have known from your posts. C'mon, I have to have a reason to surf @ work.
BTW -- nice work on Squeezer!

Hinterland's "Who's Who": The Non-Purple Martin:
The Non-Purple Martin can be seen last posting in the final week of September, and then not again, till... god knows when... we guess he's out gathering seeds and shiny things for his nest in preparation for the winter? Who the hell knows. Brad -- I can at least confirm for you that as of Oct. 25, he is indeed alive
