Happy new year, everyone :) All the best hopes for everyone in 2014.
I spent the day doing my traditional New Year’s clean-up today; I purged quite a few things that I’ve been meaning to for some time. The only thing left to do is drop a box of pots off at the thrift store and I’m done.
Back to work tomorrow.
Anyway that’s all the bring stuff. I’ve started using Instagram for pictures; you can see my stream at http://instagram.com/breeonne.
New year, new camera. A sampling of some pics; haven’t got around to properly curating things on my Flickr.
One of the nice things about Bistro Sakana is that it’s fairly reasonably priced for consistently amazing sushi. There’s a lot of attention put into the food and it’s always a fun night out.

and the Platter:
Wild sockeye jalapeno aburi (box sushi): Sockeye salmon topped with jalapeno slices
Toro red chili aburi (box sushi): albacore toro marinated in Junmai sake and miso, topped with red chili and key lime slivers
As an aside, we’ve decided we have to go back and just order Teppan roll in future.
Ginger citrus Hamachi
I’m not normally a fan of hamachi, but the citrus and ginger balanced the flavour of the fish.

In the month of June, I had planned to blog more. I wanted to start today with a science news round-up, only apparently it’s the slowest science news day ever (it being Sunday and all).
So,instead, some pictures from a recent trip I took to the Museum of Anthropology at UBC. I used Flickr’s new editing tool to apply filters; it made up slightly for the awkwardness of my camera’s light sensor.
It saddens me that Translink has moved away from the Bee iconography on the 99 B-Line cross-town route. I think more of our transit routes should have an animal mascot.
Like the Condor Canada Line.
Or the Marmot Main Street bus.
Or the Sea Lion Skytrain.
Or even the Tortoise 84 (you had to know that was coming.)
What animal would you attach to each route?
Ha! on twitter, Translink pitched in with the 97 Eagle Line, which is an excellent idea. If we’re going to name cards things like Compass or Starfish, why not?
