Weird Weekend

I visited my hometown for the Easter long weekend. There wasn't much down time in my schedule.

On Friday I chilled with some buddies from highschool. There were some new people there and one had a take on homosexuality that I really didn't appreciate. The person is under the mistaken impression that it's caused by over-nurturing children and somehow oblivious to all recent scientific studies in this area.
The board game we played, Shadows over Camelot, was fun. It's a collaborative one with quests. We successfully completed the quest for the holy grail because we're awesome.

On Saturday, I got 2 new summer tires and ran into an old friend from elementary school. It was nice seeing him and catching up.
After the 1.5 hours of tire stuff, I got ready for a party in Chisolm, Ontario. It was the most country place I've been to and while it was nice seeing some friends, I don't think I need to go there ever again. I had such a weird evening that I got inspiration for a horror story involving cannibalism. People probably thought I was somewhat antisocial or weird since I wasn't talking a lot. The story going on in my head was rather distracting.
Eventually, I made it out of the country and back to my parents in time for a visit with a long time family friend who's pretty much a brother to me.

Sunday brought a slower pace. I had lunch with a friend and chatted about various things. I'm happy things are going well for her.
After that I made brownies and helped my mom with supper. I had time for some reading and my bro came over. Dinner was tasty.

Monday rolled around and I drive back to Ottawa. That night I played some Oblivion.

So the Easter weekend was a mixed bag for me, but overall enjoyable.

Ciao,

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included. 
Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt. 
I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her.
She was a force off the track too.
As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers, she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.  
Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her. 
I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again.

Change is in the Air

I've been making a lot of changes lately around my home and some of them might seem a little odd, but they're making me happy. One thing I've done is taken apart my dining table. I never eat in there or have people over to eat. It was just another horizontal surface that would collect things like receipts, odd screws from various projects, and countless piles of paper. I had been frustrated because of the clutter it encouraged, but also because I didn't have a space for my Yamaha keyboard. I had been trying to use my keyboard in the living room, but it felt too cluttered and it wasn't sitting at the right height. With it now in my dining room, I was able to relocate my storage bench, which happens to be the perfect height to sit at while playing my keyboard. I now have much more breathing room. There is still a lot of mess to handle here yet, but I'm making solid progress. A lot of people suggest the bedroom is the place to start when decluttering, but I haven&…

Feeling My Age - ROW80 2020 R1-4

I've reached the age where my body has decided to have issues. Not constantly, but frequently. Sprinting for a bus can leave me with an injured ankle simply from using it, not from actually twisting it in ways it shouldn't move, just a fairly normal activity. I guess I need to warmup and stretch before walking to the bus now. About a decade ago, I was given a guard for my teeth due to grinding. And for the next month, I need to sleep with wrist braces because my doctor thinks I'm developing carpal tunnel. Really, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now given my level of computer use. My mom had it years ago and had to have surgery. From reading books of all things. Anyway, he thinks if I sleep with braces on that it may be enough to keep it at bay because the nerves will get 7-8 hours of rest. After 4 days and nights, the tingling has been reducing, so I'm hopeful.
