  • Wedding photos!

    Candice and Rich Originally uploaded by mendel. We received our DVD of photos from our wedding photographer earlier this week, and last night I finally finished uploading about 1/3 of them (just over 400 in total) to Flickr. Clicking on the image above will take you to the first of four sets, but you probably […]

  • HOLY SHIT I’M MARRIED: the long version!

    So yeah, that wedding thing. I got married! It’s crazy. I have a ring and a cute wife now. Crazy! First, the executive summary: Everything went wonderfully. It was sunny and bright with a few clouds — a bit warm, but nearly everything was inside, so that was fine. But everything just worked. All of […]


    HOLY SHIT I’M MARRYING CANDICE TOMORROW. This is a good thing, in case that wasn’t clear. And it’s all a big to-do list from now until then, so you probably won’t hear much from me until we’re back from Paris! HOLY SHIT

  • Canada Day, and new toy!

    Candice and I have a new camera! We both had old 3-megapixel digital cameras from a while ago, but Candice‘s HP Photosmart 715 is sort of big and clunky, and my Olympus C-3040 uses SmartMedia memory which is hard to find.

    Also, BREAKING NEWS: Candice passed her provincial exams, so she’s now a real, honest-to-goodness massage therapist instead of a slacker student now. Go congratulate her!

    Candice and I realized recently that we spend an awful lot of time and energy on things food-related: reading and talking about food and wine and restaurants, trying local restaurants, cooking, baking, looking for local merchants, shopping for wine, and so forth, and that there’s a dearth of people talking about food in Ottawa even […]

  • Engagement photos!

    Last week Candice and I went down to Hog’s Back Falls on the Rideau River, where we met our wedding photographer, Andrew Van Beek, for engagement photos. It was a blast. Andrew commented a few times as we were climbing over rocks and around fences and past “No Entry” signs how much fun we were […]

  • Two years of nyxieness

    Last night, Candice and I celebrated two years together over dinner at Juniper. On one hand it’s hard to believe it’s only been two years — it feels like we’ve just always been together. On the other hand, yay, two years! There were times when I wasn’t sure how things were going to end up, […]
