Funky Friday: May Long Weekend

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="alignright" width="300"]Image created using Bit Strips. Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

This post was pre-scheduled because I'm traveling for a martial arts seminar this long weekend. I hope this doesn't diminish your reading pleasure.

Personal

  • Mixed: The other day, my boss announced he's retiring at the end of May. They're splitting up my department and I'll have a new boss. Hopefully, this will be a good change and the transition goes smoothly.

  • Super Duper Excited: This weekend is the annual Sei Do Kai seminar in Guelph. I look forward to this event all year. It's a weekend filled with hardcore training and heavy socializing. It will exhaust me, but it's worth it. Sounds like it will be filled with gaming too.


Ottawa

  • Intrigued: Need some geek food?

  • Shocked: I can't believe the Movati gym that is not allowing a woman to wear a tank top because of her bust size. It's not like her girls aren't contained within the top and her bra. She's not going around flashing people. Ridiculous.


Ontario

  • Awed: A First Nations reserve has raised money to help the Albertans affected by the forest fire. This particular reserve has been plagued with suicides. Will Alberta help them in return? I know the community isn't expecting anything in return, but I think that a community that is suffering as much as theirs that is giving so much to others deserves some help in return.

  • Disgusted: An ultrasound company in Ontario has been giving out the same photo to multiple expectant parents.


Canada

  • Annoyed: There is too much, IMO, being made of the PM accidentally bumping into someone in Parliament and leading someone else away from the commotion. He's a boxer. If he wanted to hurt someone he'd use his fists. He's apologized multiple times now. Can everyone just accept he's the PM and let him do his job? Can the MPs just do their actual job, which is representing the people that voted for them and not act like spoiled children?


World

  • Amused: J. K. Rowling supports Trump's right to free speech: "His freedom to speak protects my freedom to call him a bigot." Love that woman.

  • Worried: EgyptAir flight MS804 has crashed. I hope they find the plane and I hope there are survivors. I hope this resolves soon for all those involved.


Well, I'll probably still be in a car on the way while you read this. I could also be sleeping in the car because I've had so much to do leading up to this weekend. I hope you all have wonderful weekends!

Ciao,
R~

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my

I've been busy. Really busy. Life: - Making food for two long weekends (Comiccon and an Iaido seminar) - Finishing my costume for Comiccon, which is in 5 days! (Carnival Punk Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Went to On the Brink on Friday to hear authors read. Won a book and bought a Steampunk anthology. - In training this week for work (off-site) and it's an early start for me Writing: - Editing The Page & The Magician (just finished Chapter 3) - Finished a short story called The Blood Waitress Club , which is on revision 3 and I'm just waiting for feedback before I put it up on Smashwords - I've been trying to write short stories that may fit into some anthology, but I find it harder to write with some specific criteria in mind rather than coaxing the words from my soul Guitar: - We are learning a lot of songs (Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Green Day, Black Eyed Peas, Bare Naked Ladies, Simon & Garfunkel, ABBA, Ed Sheeran, The Animals, John Fogerty, Ian Thomas) - I hav
