After an extended long weekend, it was a nice short week around here. At the end of my birthday weekend I decided to go on a short camping trip on Vancouver Island. It had been way too long since my last camping trip and too long since I had been over to the Island. Swimming in the ocean over there was way colder than the drunken night swimming on Friday.
On my actual birthday I convinced my new girlfriend to go kayaking and then she treated me to a nice dinner. Since it was a birthday weekend for 3 other friends, it was a weekend full of partying. All in all it was a pretty awesome break from blogging.
Once I got back from camping I had to do some serious catching up. It kinda makes me glad that I didn’t schedule a post for Tuesday since that would mean even more comments to reply to. Hopefully I didn’t miss too many good posts on other blogs while I was away.

Ironically I got a shitload of mentions on other blogs during this short holiday week. I guess I should take off every weekend and come back in the middle of the week. Thanks to everyone that mentioned my blog recently.

Ok if this list gets any bigger I’ll have to start listing carnival mentions earlier in the week. Also I might do the same for some of my favorite posts each week. That would require some extra organization though. So we’ll see.
How was everyone’s Labor Day weekend? Who all is out enjoy Denver at FinCon this weekend?
