Results are... I pass my thesis defense with minor revisions!! Woohoo! The presentation today went very well, with all the prof's returning nothing but constructive criticism.

I'm now TWICE an uncle with my new nephew, Gavin, earlier this week. Yah to Dina and Ben!! We'll have to chat when I can come down to visit!

Thesis defense is tomorrow. I'm all set for it. Then a few revisions (hopefully) and I'm done!

Cleo is gone. She's off cavorting with some hopefully friendly male geckos. We couldn't find anyone in Vancouver that could take care of her for when we are in Europe, so we put an ad in the Buy and Sell. John in the West End took her, and is hoping to get her to mate with a male that he has... we might be able to pick up a baby gecko when we get back! Anyways, her cage is empty... very sad. I took a few pics of her before she left. I put one of the pics as a test in our 'new' touring blog for Europe... getting all set for the trip CAN'T WAIT!

So we have a new digital camera (thanks Mom and Dad!!!) to use when we're there. It's working great, and the battery life is way better than we were expecting. It's a Samsung Digimax 300, by the way... good bang for the buck. We'll decide on the trip whether we entirely endorse it, but so far so good.

Updates are coming in slow now, but I'm still kicking.
Handed in my thesis to my committee yesterday. Good to have that away; the defense on the 18th should be a go now.
Still working on getting our trip in order too. Almost there! We can taste it! Got our first hostel booking (Amsterdam is REAL busy in July! It's crazy!). Have to replace our rear wheel as well. There were some hairline cracks in the rim... it'll go at sometime, so we decided to replace while we had control.
