1. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
Fathered a child (well, I guess some salient bits were done in 2009), grew peas, built a hardwood floor, drafted a will, published a statistics paper, took a train in business class, drove a pickup truck.

Welcome to the world, Oscar Bruce Hortop! He was born last night at 11:15 at the Maison de Naissance de l'Outaouais; baby and family are back home, healthy and in good spirits.

A meeting ate my afternoon at work today, but I think I planted some seeds of good ideas and solid methodology.

We planted a couple of potted basil plants on the weekend. Alas, something seems to be nibbling on their leaves that isn't us. The peas and leafy greens are doing very well, and both irises are in bloom!

I think we now have a plan for the floor upstairs — there will be ripping-out in our future followed by levelling, sub-flooring and a nice hardwood floor.


Some questions from [livejournal.com profile] fuzzyila:
  1. What is your favourite vegetable? To grow, kale. To eat, asparagus.
  2. What do you believe will be the most rewarding part of fatherhood? I'm sure my understanding of fatherhood will change drastically once I'm there, but from where I am now, watching our kid get good at things I've taught them, and branch off in new directions, will be pretty incredible.
  3. When you're sick, do you prefer to be left alone or do you want company and babying? I prefer to be stoic and cocoon for the most part.
  4. If you were in a museum and it caught fire, and you have the choice to save either a Van Gogh painting or a small yipping poodle with an overbite, which do you choose? I think I can run faster from the flames carrying a small poodle.
  5. Have you ever stolen an object larger than your hand? What was it? When I've stolen things, they've been small, intangible and/or debatable.

These question memes traditionally have an offer of contagiousness; if you want questions then comment and say so!
