About Me

I’m Laura.

Smurf Hatted.

I grew up in one of the shitty towns outside Vancouver, Canada until I was released from the public school system, free to roam anywhere in Canada. I’ve voluntarily lived in Vancouver proper, Halfmoon Bay (BC), Calgary (AB), and Montréal (QC). I currently reside in Canada’s least snowy city, Victoria.

I repair bikes for the safety of my insular community and a paycheque.

Not surprisingly, I often roll around the island on two wheels. My desire to travel vertically is fulfilled by climbing. International travel is supported by various airlines (none of which I like enough to recommend). When I don’t feel like burning many calories or jet fuel, you might find me knitting, drawing, painting, and baking, although probably not simultaneously.

It’s also been suspected that I like squirrels, the colour blurple, and filling out comment cards. I habitually anthropomorphize fruit left unattended.

I can’t hear anything. Not just right now, but ever. I’m deaf: this seems to bother others more than it does me. Other than writing or typing, I use American Sign Language to communicate.

The name Squaremeat came from a friend who couldn’t keep up with my fingerspelling and somehow concluded that I must have a meat shape preference.

I have many things to say about the following:

Cycling
Deafness
Documentary Reviews
Throwback Blog Posts
Travelling
Pyrénées/Catalonia Bike Tour 2018

  1. Hi Laura!
    You popped up in my mind today, wondering what you’re up to these days. I think I’ve just successfully subscribed to your blog?????

    1. Hi Jessie! And…Happy Super Belated Birthday? Hope it isn’t as distasteful as “Happy New Year-ing” someone in March!

      Strangely enough, I’ve also been thinking about quite a few people who used to have a regular presence in my life lately, including you and Shaun! Glad you got in touch!

      1. Do you still have the same number? What’s the best way to contact you these days? We’re very over due for a catch up.
