I've never liked stuffing. I didn't eat it as a child, and as a grown up I always politely, and quickly, pass the bowl of stuffing to the person beside me at the table.

So I am currently wrist deep in a new startup company and it is going to be offered in many languages and this requires me to be on the road all the time. It's like the least difficult job I have ever had. But though I'm gone, my heart is buried 12 feet under Jasper Ave and 109 street and I read all the articles, watch all the highlights and swear at my Oilers App on the regular. The Copper and Blue are and will be out of sight for the foreseeable future but they are not even close to be out of mind.
