Welcome Andrew Christopher Piskuric February 6, 2011 at 9:14 am

Sarah and I are excited to announce the birth of Andrew Christopher Piskuric!

Andrew was born at St. Josephs Hospital at 5:03PM on February 3rd 2011. Andrew weighed in at a healthy 9 lbs 5 ounces and is 21 inches in length. A healthy boy to say the least!

Andrew was born about 26 hours after labour was induced but only after a Caesarean section was preformed as he was a little too big to fit down the right tube. The surgery went spectacularly well and both mommy and baby are doing well.

Goodbye iPhone… hello Nexus One! March 30, 2010 at 10:02 pm

As you all know I am a technology nut. I love all aspects of the tech world from software to hardware and all in-between. A few years ago I became infatuated with all things Apple. In 2005 I bought my first Apple product, an iPod. In 2006 I bought a Mac Mini and ventured into the world of OSX. In 2008 I bought an iPhone after much desire and begging of Rogers to carry it.

In the past year though my feelings have changed. In September I purchased a new top of the line Dell PC with Windows 7 and have had no regrets. Windows 7 is stable and sleek and works perfect for me and my needs. That was a big leap but the leap I made this past week was bigger. I purchased a Google Nexus One phone to replace my iPhone.

New home(page)!!! July 13, 2009 at 11:05 pm

Ok this definitely qualifies as BIG NEWS!!! Sarah and I are homeowners! Yes you read that right. We just completed the final paperwork on Thursday July 9, 2009 and will take possession on August 5th 2009. More about that later but I want to get something quick out of the way first.

Very quickly I want to point out the new look and feel of the site. I wanted to make it look more “bloggy”, essentially putting complete focus on the blog itself.

I’m Baaaaaack! April 6, 2009 at 8:30 pm

Alright this is not the first time I need to apologize for not posting anything in forever. (See here and here and here). I AM A SLACKER! I get it. You don’t have to remind me. Well I’m back with a vengeance. This time I really want to come back regularly and consistently. I have redesigned the website (which took a lot of time) and I have finally got back in the mood to blog. I have a bunch of topics in mind that I want to bitch and moan about and I finally have the website looking good that I can promote it. So get ready world. I’M BACK!!!

Happy Holidays! December 24, 2007 at 2:35 pm

Well here is the proverbial Happy Holidays post that will show up on a lot of blogs this time of year. Well I got to follow along the trend. Not only that but I am bored at work and need to fill time somehow. Plus there is some news to mention so lets get to that.

First off I need to congratulate Nicole Paterson and Richard Wood for the birth of their first child, Hannah Wood!!!. She was born in the early morning of Friday December 14th and is happy and healthy. If only we can say the same for the parents :p Actually Nicole and Richard are thrilled and happy, not to mention tired and busy. But thats life with a new born. If I get permission from the parents I will post a picture of the little one here for all to ooh and awe at. Just for those that are wondering, 9 months ago Nicole, Richard, Sarah and I were in the Dominican together, so do the math!

An Engaging Weekend October 30, 2007 at 8:49 pm

Well this past weekend was one of the most fun I have had in a long time. I spent the weekend in New York City on a bus trip with my social club through work. The main reason for the trip was shopping and to attend the Toronto Maple Leafs game versus the New York Rangers on Saturday night. I also had other plans for the weekend so read on.

Congrats Rose and Andrej! June 27, 2007 at 8:33 pm

Well last weekend (June 23rd 2007) my cousin Rosmarie married Andrej Lisjak. Congratulations to them both and I wish them a long, happy and fruitful marriage with many little Lisjaks!

As for the wedding itself we had a great time. Being the brides family we spent the morning and afternoon at her place just partying and dancing and oh yeah … drinking! We consumed copious amounts of alcohol, including but not limited to beer, wine and shots of Jagermeister and brandy.

I’ve Graduated June 22, 2007 at 7:12 pm

I’ve graduated! Well last Friday I did. What did I graduate? I graduated my training class at Cogeco! That means they are not going to fire me any time soon! And thats a bonus.

I’ve been on the main call center floor for 4 shifts now and I am liking it. The atmosphere is nice and relaxing (during most parts of the day) and my co-workers are nice. So far I haven’t talked to a single person I haven’t liked. I am working crazy shifts. I’m working 4-12midnight this whole week. The shifts are actually not too bad because the supervisors go home and after 8pm is pretty much us left to run the show. Next week I get to work pretty much days all week (8am-4pm).
