"I'm telling you stories. Trust me." - Winterson

Don't worry what other people think -- they don't do it all that often.

Some days my job is fairly entertaining. Today I learned all about dinosaurs. Seriously could've used the assistance of the average 7 yo boy. hahaha The ROM has dinosaurs. They also have videos about said dinosaurs... The people I worked for designed and implimented the touch screens which display said videos. Still w/ me? Ok well the time has come that these very exciting dino vids need close-captioning. So guess who the lucky person is who was doing that??? hahaha no, not Fred. Yes today's job was to take the script, cut it into CC sized pieces, and set the timing so the right text plays w/ the right commentary. Funfunfun let me tell you :) Actually though it was sort of entertaining. One of the video presenters was *very* into his subject. hahaha And I learned all about how the captioning software works (and how it *doesn't*... *sigh* as I had to redo one section after learning you can't undo. Oops).

So neither my Beast nor my horse were sound today :( That part sux. 28 deg and sunny and I couldn't go riding. Booooo :( Ah well. Si @ least should be good tomorrow when she gets shoes back on *fingers crossed*. HAS to get her shoes back on so we can go school XC! hahaha Priorities after all.

Definitely skipped spinning class. Just too nice to sit on a stationary bike inside. Tried to corrupt J too but she's more dedicated than I *g* I ended up just going for a walk instead. Mondays are soon going to be taken up w/ teaching so figure I may as well enjoy this one! Tried for "my chance to win" the Galapagos Adventure from Jepoardy -- but only valid in the US. What's the point of having a Canadian host if we can't win the contest? Sheesh.

Rider testing the other day went well. Decent kids who were actually testing at levels appropriate for them, so that was good. Cold and rainy all day then nice just as I finished work and could go ride my own pony -- not too bad :)

hahaha "there's no place for truth on the Internet" -- from the Big Bang Theory. It's amazing the things you stumble upon when you're not running around like an insane person.

Got this in an E -- it's been around before but as it applies to a good majority of my friends, I thought I'd share. Enjoy:
"Women have strengths that amaze men. They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice.They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or wedding. Their hearts breaks when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart. Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have the compassion and ideas. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give. However, if there is one flaw in women, it is that they forget their worth."

Yeah so I'm bored -- can ya tell? Apparently a *whole* night off w/o something good to read is just not right (although I'd fight for it if I had a good book waiting). Of course none of the things that have been waiting for me to have "just a few minutes" to get done (fun things like laundry, paperwork, etc) just didn't happen. Ah well -- maybe next time I have "just a few minutes" hahaha or maybe not.

"Like a lot of rules, there are times to follow them and times to not." <-- more TV wisdom. hahaha sheer brillance that (we're on to "How I Met Your Mother" now...) And as amused as I've been, this evening has reconfirmed that I'm def not missing anything by not being home in the evenings. hahaha And yet, something *else* keeps coming on so I keep sitting here watching... Starting to see how an entire culture has disintegrated >;-P Disturbingly addictive.
