Bio
It's 2010 now.

I'm back to being single.

On the work side, I'm a PeopleSoft Technical Developer. The good part is that it pays quite well. The bad part is too much stress and the on-call can suck. But I can live with the bad parts for now.

My parents live in Victoria, British Columbia, a city that I just adore. Plus it's on the ocean, which is a whole special attraction for me right there. My sister is in Calgary, Alberta. She's been there for decades and seems to like it.

And I'm a Canadian citizen. In 1999 I got laid off and wanted to do something different, so I ended up getting a work visa and moving to Iowa. Thanks to good fortune, I've ended up with a Green Card, and I am eligible to become a US citizen, just not sure yet if I want to, or not.

I have 2 cats that are wonderful. Well, most of the times! :P

In my spare time, I play Facebook games. Sometimes playing WoW or Civ5 as well.

I'm a huge Great Big Sea admirer and have seen them twice in concert this year. :)

Quotes I like:

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all” - Oscar Wilde

“When you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.” - Christopher Morley

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.” - Robert A. Heinlein
