On the weekend I cycled up hills I did not think I could. Amazing feeling! I also got to 80kph on a really nice downhill stretch  :D

Last night I went to a community event and had a dinner that represented three continents. African style samosas, Indian potato and spicy vegetable patties and pumpkin and fetta pizza. All from local small businesses too.

Sure, there was also a visit to the dentist but on the whole life is good.

Thanks to Russ for the sig!

Another night of crappy sleep.
Another day of dealing with people.
Another evening spent at home by myself.
This is to be my 24 hours.
Word.
Dig it.

Spent my day bouncing between meetings and health and safety related training and such... still managed to get some stuff done! Win.

Had a Ramen instant lunch for the first time in my life today. They're sold at one of the coffee stands at my college, and I didn't bring anything for lunch. I knew I was going to have to have an instant lunch, so I brought a pair of chopsticks with me. It didn't occur to me to bring a spoon, though, so I had to drink the broth directly out of the cup. I burned my tongue ever so slightly, but in this weather the heat felt really good.

Hmmm. Good times.
Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

Had some weird dreams this morning.
One was one of my dogs, pooping all over the floor (he's had some digestive issues in the past), and the other involved me shooting down robotic drones with a crossbow while some crazy, red sky, electrical storm rolled in.

In other news, had to get my tire fixed for a slow leak today. Cost me $26 USD, but it beats a can of fix-o-flat that could cause more problems later.

Had one of those episodes where you stare into the eyes of your reflection a little too long. I kept looking at my eyes and the longer I looked the more menacing the person in the mirror appeared. After a while I found I couldn't look away. I was about to have a full on panic attack when thankfully my roommate came in and broke my trance. I checked my watch and I figure I must have been frozen staring for at least ten minutes... in a dim room... alone. I've avoided my reflection since this morning. Now I have no idea if my hair is parted correctly.

Boss said at 10:30: "Screw this! It's  cold out here. I take you all home." So I got home at 10:30.

You know, when you work a more or less set schedule, you get used to it. You know when you are supposed to come in, take breaks, and go home. Then they give you one day that is different.
I've been on both sides now.
Once, I was late by two hours, the other, today, I was two hours early. Nicely enough, the supervisors have not made a big deal out of it, which is good for me.

Plus, today, the supervisor even told me that if it is slow tonight, I can leave early, or, if I want the money, I can stay. My choice. I'm thinking money!  :D

P.S.

Towards the end of his shift, one of my supervisors stopped by my cube and handed me an application for employment for the company. (I'm a temp and have been for nearly a year)


I'm feeling pretty damned good at the moment and I'm hopeful.

:D Good on you! That sounds awesome.

I've got my internet unshaped after a fortnight of painful speeds. Life is good. Though considering I was shaped to a speed considerably faster than dialup... amazed how painfully slow it is.

Now it's a long weekend so if you'll excuse me I've got some slacking off to do.

Thanks to Russ for the sig!

It started snowing at oh-dark-30 yesterday. I shoveled the driveway and the sidewalk after school as I'd promised my dad the night before. It didn't stop snowing until this morning, though, and so I hadn't even finished my hot chocolate before my hard work was undone. Meh.

The driveway I understand, but I never saw the point of shoveling our sidewalk. You can't walk anywhere in town from our house.
