Merry Monday - Christmas Party Season

[caption id="attachment_4711" align="alignright" width="300"]merry_monday Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

I'm sorry. I totally sucked this weekend in regards to blog posts. Christmas Party Season has started and made me rather busy on top of school work.

I saw Star Wars on Friday. I love it despite some seriously WTF moments. The music is fantastic, as usual. There were several awesome combat scenes. I felt like some things came too easy to certain individuals and you'll know what I mean when you see it. I won't say anything else because I'm not the spoiler type. I don't know if I'll do a lengthy review at some point or not, but maybe.

Also on Friday, I boosted my own car! Life skills leveled up. And then I had to boost it twice more because I couldn't drive it long enough to charge the battery between getting gas and going to Star Wars. After Star Wars, I drove across town to get Sensei and Sempai some sake. That has brought Pixie back to life so far. The Eliminator boosting thing I got for $99 at Canadian Tire is now my favourite car thing. I feel much more at ease about traveling in the winter.

Saturday was spent on homework and our dojo dinner. I had a premium sake sampler. Many of the shots were rather strong like vodka, but I was feeling pretty good by the time dinner came.

Sunday was the Christmas edition of B-Movie club and I almost really messed up because I had forgotten I was bringing a potluck item. I hurriedly invented a rice stuffing recipe from several Internet recipes. I put the rice in the rice cooker while I showered. It finished shortly after I was done and I rushed to the store to get the rest of the items for the stuffing. We watched the Star Wars Holiday Special and that has to be one of the most painful things I've ever seen. I get to try and top it next month.

But I also got to spend time with my little buddy. We chatted about Iron Man, Spider-man, and Star Wars. He walked about with his "phone" which was apparently telling him jokes. He also made sure I knew he is now 4.5 years old and told me tales of the toys he had when he was young. Yes, that's how he phrased it. Too adorable!

Oh, AND I conquered my hand wash dishes. My kitchen is close to clean!

It was a great weekend :)

This week, I'm finishing up a few things before heading off to visit the family. I'm not sure if I will have the second act of my South Park episode written, but I'd like to try. Each assignment I finish early is one less for the last couple weeks of school. My 10-minute play needs a little more work. I talked about it with my teacher today to get ideas on how to make it a little longer. Hopefully I can figure it out.

Off to wrap gifts and do laundry.

Guid cheerio the nou,
R~

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. 
R.I.P. #10.

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.
