The other day my work went on a field trip to the Haptic lab on campus. There I got to see a 3D scanner, a high quality 3D printer, a physical-virtual sculpting tool, and a water cutter (which cuts metal with streams of water, moving at 1km/s (yes, 3x the speed of sound)).

I went canoeing last week.

I've finally started playing through the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword again. I acquired it around two years ago, but I watched my friend play through most of it, and I've waited for my memory to degrade and to have more time to make it through.
I've started working harder at my second job. I was letting other priorities bump it a bit too often, and I feel really bad about that. Mrrr.
I need to stop lying about having a vacuum cleaner. It's weird the habits we pick up. I tell myself I'm holding out for a Roomba.
We're learning more Niten Ichi-ryu in iaido, and I'm already looking forward to my next grading in jodo (a year away). I was going to go do a jodo demo in Montréal, but there is a conspiracy against me going to Quebec, because it turns out a friend's wedding is the same weekend. Ha!
I'm excited to see The Fault in Our Stars this weekend. I'd like to go to the simulcast event in K-W tonight, but I know no one else who will.
Finally, I've spent several late afternoons at the Bike Centre. Whee, self-sufficiency!
