The Temple from the side. It was super gorgeous. I zoomed in and got a great view of the carving on it that we couldn’t see from where we were standing.



I am helping to organize a new craft fair that is happening March 21, 2015. It is called CON Creative Ottawa Nerds. You can say that you’re going to the event here, and you can like our Facebook page here. Éric wrote about it yesterday here.

Sacrificing table

What better way to celebrate Christmas than to look at a picture of the TARDIS on an ancient Egyptian sacrificing table! I got yelled at for taking this picture. Apparently we were supposed to know that this wasn’t a replica. Honestly, who doesn’t have 4000 year old art behind some sort of case or barrier? Got the picture, though!


Merry Christmas everyone!


The Metropolitan Museum of Art

We had a little over an hour to check out the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (Twitter) I recommend much longer than that! A half day at the very least. Also, when paying the entrance fee, it says in large letters “$25”, and then in smaller letters “Recommended”. We paid about a dollar or fifty cents (I can’t remember) each to get in. And no-one looked at us as though we were horrible people.


Robert J. Sawyer

Robert J. Sawyer has won so many awards for his books, it’s hard to keep track of them all! But I think the best one was given to him at the Aurora Awards the first weekend of October in 2013: He received the Lifetime Achievement Aurora Award. Pretty spectacular! His books include Flashforward, The Neanderthal Parallax trilogy, Triggers, and Red Planet Blues, just to name a very tiny few. I heard him give a talk at the Museum of Science and Tech on Neutrinos, and the first weekend in October 2013, I got to speak with him one-on-one. I turned beat-red and couldn’t find my words. It was hilarious, looking back on it. But then? I wished I could dig a hole in the ground. I hope I will do better next time, because, seeing as he comes to Ottawa to give talks fairly often, there will be a next time!

Don’t harvest the TARDIS!

This is a Walking Harvester. It was built as a proof of concept but never sold.

Thanks to Samantha and Martin for this picture! 🙂

I am only going to be posting on Mondays and Thursdays until further notice. As I am gearing up for my first ever Geek Market, where I will be selling my creations, I do not have as much time to take pictures. I will try to keep to this new schedule. Please bear with me.
