The Elusive Trivia A Student Award
Wednesday, August 03, 2016      16 comments

Nope, not in July either. I was teetering on the brink, maintaining 90% correct, right up until the end of the month and then whap whap whap whap: a whole series of questions wrong wrong wrong. This month is NOT looking good either -... Read more
At the Beach . . .
Tuesday, August 02, 2016      23 comments

Yesterday I got to the gym AND to the beach (wearing my new bathing suit! checking out tattoos of course in both places) AND to the golf course: nine holes at the very best time of the day, lots of beautiful slanting rays of sunshine illuminatin... Read more
Correction: I DO Have Tattoos!
Monday, August 01, 2016      24 comments

How could I have "forgotten" about them? In 2009, four pinpoint markers for radiation therapy for breast cancer. And I hated them so much when I got them (NO CHOICE, obviously). One of them shows when I'm wearing even a very moderately low cu... Read more
Did You Tattoo??
Sunday, July 31, 2016      20 comments

I don't have any. (And I don't have any piercings. And I don't colour my hair, which is beginning to silver: but after all, I'm 65 years old -- so it's to be expected). However, even though I'm too prissy and too cheap and too vain to ha... Read more
"Everyone is Entitled to Their Opinion"
Saturday, July 30, 2016      18 comments

We hear that expression pretty often. And (ignoring the grammar for a moment), what do you think? Is it true? Not (and yup, I'm fully aware of the irony) in my opinion!! What's an opinion? One definition says an opinion is "a belief or... Read more
After Hillary?
Friday, July 29, 2016      17 comments

My comment on NUMD97's status post, "Hillary!": "OK, if I am allowed to make a political comment from north of the border -- was thrilled by Michelle's speech. If Hillary can succeed Bill, can Michelle succeed Barack please????" And if you... Read more

My DH is a maniac golfer: truly it is his primary prism through which he views every aspect of life. There's no situation arising in his life which would not benefit from a golf analogy: Tam Ludo Quam Vita (in play as in life). It's those mira... Read more
Advance Rewards
Wednesday, July 27, 2016      21 comments

I've been having an interesting exchange of messages with a Spark Friend about the value of "advance rewards": in this case, gold stars for sticking with the nutrition tracking. My piano teacher used to put stars in my music book when I'd ... Read more

Anticipation
Monday, July 25, 2016      16 comments

Yay, have finally got around to planning some vacation time later this summer and also during the winter. It's always terrific to have something to look forward to: and additional motivation to keep fitting into the shorts and bathing suit... Read more
All Good
Sunday, July 24, 2016      26 comments

OK then: found some replacement geraniums, very low price too: and a couple dracaena spikes: pots all sheared back, replanted. Looking quite nice again: I won't feel guilty pangs sitting on the verandah! Also found a new bathing suit, on s... Read more

It's hot here . . . and yesterday turned out I'd been scheduled for an 8:30 am appointment without prior notice to me and also received a "prep memo" dense 3 page email at 7 am that I needed to review for that appointment and yup, headed in to w... Read more

Not My Problem
Thursday, July 21, 2016      24 comments

OK, I can't fix some problems. You knew that already. And I knew it too. Of course I did. They're just too complicated. They run too deep. And I'm not all-powerful. Or remotely close to that. What I can do is pretty l... Read more
Hilarity
Wednesday, July 20, 2016      28 comments

I cultivate a stance of mild hilarity. Mild only, but generally that's enough. So often in the work I do, I'm confronted with adversarial stuff. Chest thumping. Knuckle dragging. Raised voices, verging on yelling. Confrontation. Attempt... Read more
