Zero Gravity Circus

July 28, 2005 - Categories: canada

I biked over to 1300 Gerrard Street East to join the weekly Zero Gravity Circus practice (7 – 11, Wednesdays). These guys are way, way cool. They’re really set up for circus practice: long strips of cloth for acrobats, mats all over the place, and even a small stage. People juggled assorted things: balls, clubs, rings… A number of people practiced poi (they’re using really short strings, for some reason) and fire staves (sans fire), and there were even a couple of diabolo people. (Way, way, cool!)

The streetcar runs along Gerrard Street E, so it’s a pretty convenient location. Now I have a regular Wednesday evening thing…

You’ve got a friend…

I’ve just finished watching the video my friends made for my birthday
and send-off party, and now that I’ve recovered my
breath from laughing so hard, all I can say is… wow!

Here’s a toast to a totally amazing group of friends without whom I
would be missing out on so much wonderfulness.

Custom planner =)

July 28, 2005 - Categories: emacs, organizer, planning, productivity

I went to a shop specializing in pens and organizers, but I couldn’t
find anything that matched what I had in mind. So I made my own
planner templates using OpenOffice.org Calc and Inkscape. I made
a week planner with plenty of space for action items and notes, a
month list I can use to keep track of things like meals or whatever,
and a booknotes template.

I’m going to test the templates over the next few days. If it works
for me, then I’ll put the templates up on the Net. They’re for
standard letter-size three-ring binders, so anyone can use them
easily. =)

I’m a happy girl.
