Squeeee for IWBH + DD! Smartypants, just like Dad.

(((ElleJay))) Hills and valleys, hills and valleys.

Ravi Shankar is on ITunes if you need him. Morning Raga is my favourite.

The Left Coast is having Snow. We don't just call it Snow. We call it a Snow Event.

Expecting enough tomorrow to perhaps close the college. Then we will call it a Snow Day.

There's no day like a Snow Day. la la la

FF is going into week 4 with no wine. Giving my liver a break (for a change!) and have never slept better.

This could be my new high....

Will be having some at the end of the month, though, to celebriate what would have been the 25th anniversary.

Until then I'll be in the Reading Car thinking about how to draft my research paper on postmodernism.

Onward trainees! Arf! Arf!

IWBH:

You must be so proud of your girl. She sounds amazing and you obviously have an incredible bond with her. I hope me and my little girl will always have the same. I just bathe in her light.

FF:

Send us a pic of the Snow Day if it arrives! You're doing great with no wine. I am also trying to give my liver a rest, it feels good. I will get some Ravi Shankar going this morning, nice sunrise in Adelaide this morning.

TJ, GSG and all the newbies - wishing you a wonderful day.

*** Send on The Snow Event!***

Cannot seem to get any snow here. Rain, drear, more rain, wind, more drear. Yup, made up that word, drear.

Courtesy GSG: Happy Birthday, Ben Franklin! He'd be 306 year old had he discovered the fountain of youth.
FF: congrats on the abstinence. GSG and I chose over a year ago to drink other delectable beverages. We have come up with many wonderful recipes....

Today's tea includes fresh coffee, and fresh baked cranberry apricot pecan scones.

Today's dinner will be chili and corn bread, fresh too, of course.

Dining car is open.

hi everyone. i caught up reading about everyone but only have a minute to post.

so....i'm going to use it to flagrantly gloat, i mean glow, about my bliss for a second.

in the morning i leave to go on the Weezer Cruise with peterpan. weezer is an alternative-type band, been around 20 years or so, and is joined by one of my 20 year faves, Dinosaur Jr and a bunch of new young bands. A four day music festival on the ocean, including one excursion day in cozumel. we have a nice grownup room with a balcony...not near the 4- and 6-bunk cheap rooms set aside for much of their target demo.

my first cruise. i'm a music freak. the weather forecast is perfect...and it's cold as shit where i am right now (cold as shit being anything with a windchill under 40....which, FF, is the primary reason i know i will likely never live in canada.)

is this really happening? really?

sending you all some of this goodness...i want to share!

Oh, stretch, there will be drinking on that cruise. haha.

Snow day announced at 9:21 am, just as everyone managed to slog in to work.

The students aren't the only ones who are pissed.

This is the second year in a row they've done this.

I'll take some pics on the way home while waiting for the bus, which amazingly enough is still running....

Happy I bought the good boots last year.

New trainees, hang in and hang on.

Take hope in the fact that the train will take you peaceful places.

Peace and tranquillity.

Been a long week, even tho it was only four days. Several weeks until time off again.

A bit of fluffy white stuff on the way. Not enough to snowshoe. Maybe next month...********

Dinner: baked chicken, cranberry pecan chorizo corn bread stuffing. Gravy. Tomorrow, chicken soup.

Damn, TJ, you guys eat well...

Off to the Reading Car again this weekend.

Gloomy weather on the horizon, so it's perfect for snuggling up to my stack of postmodernist feminist literature for Monday's class...

Being in Indonesia at the moment I get either noodles or rice......
It does get a little boring after a while.

If I ate meat I could go for Kentucky fried Kitten or Mystery meat.
I miss my kitchen.

I have my new cooker though. it arrived at my flat the day after I left. When i get home I will have the joy of wiring it in and hen let the baking begin.........

Had a great thunderstorm yesterday.... Killed the power to the classroom.
Right in the middle of the final exam.......

Positive thinking......
Happy thoughts

Need some train distraction tonight. I'm in desperate need of the padded car to scream and pound in. (You can check out my "fighting resentment" thread in D/S for more info).

IWBH - congrats to your daughter!

FF - I remember, when I lived in your city, 5 years ago there was a big "snow event", which pretty much shut down the city for several days. As a prairie girl, I thought it was amusing.

good morning ((trainees))

Long time no see

I've been a bit lax posting, but I assure you I keep up to date.

wanted to dro-p by to share yet another crazy GSG dream....

I was ciaching field hockey and after practice the routine was to take the team to the hair and nail salon( that alone makes this a bit looney). But while there I made arrangements for a secial guest.... Dolly Parton .

She never did make it to the salon because instead, in walked my mom exclaming she needed to talk to me. As t turned out she purchased a pineaple at the grocery store. When she took it home and cut it open there was a plastci baggie inside instructing her to contact the FDA (federal department of agriculture). she did just that and they quickly swooped in and quarantined her house. So she drove 5 hours to see me... she had nothing else to do I guess

I woke myself up giggling... too weird..a very incomplete story now.... did Dolly ever show up, how did the plastic baggie get inside the pineapple, why was the house quarantined, why would the FDA even let the pineapple be sold????? these questions and many more may never be answered.... guess that's the way of life.

Also need to mention that "what's her head" (my very own babbon, for those of you not familiar) has a name finally.....

LUCRETIA MACEVIL I heard that song by Blood, Sweat and Tears a few weeks back and laughed so hard I cried

Hope you all ahve a good day!
Keep truckin' trainees!

Oh that is one silly song!

@ GS: It's all gone now. We had a hurricane yesterday. My building was swaying (19th floor) and the toilet water was moving about.

I *heart* my snowboots.

Looks more like a blizzard! Still way warm, comparatively speaking, so no snow. Been drizzly all day. Drizzly would be much better if it was chocolate sauce on angel cake...

Hope the babies are better now, GS. I recall the pukey days...I would gather up the sheets without wearing my glasses and put a clothespin on my nose...couldn't see or smell.

Going to be a night by the fire, going through cooking mags (we get Cook's Illustrated and Eating Well) to pull out recipes etc. we want to keep.


Chicken for dinner, our own recipe. Chocolate chip cookies to be baked soon...

Time to go do something other than sip fabulous coffee and eat biscotti...chocolate, of course.

It was rather a lot of snow in a short period of time, and verrrry icy and slippery for a couple of days.

Nothing like the Blizzard of 96 though, when we had a few feet in 24 hours and even the busses stopped running....

It was funny to see the transit newbies on board who usually drive to work. I spoke to one woman who arrived at the college for a workshop and she'd been riding all day. Got totally turned around, got on the one going the opposite direction and "went around the world for sport" as my mum used to say.

I said "well at least you got your money's worth!"

good afternoon trainees!

Another day in paradise in the course of an 8 hour day (I call it that though it seldom is these days) I have anywhere from 3-5 hours worth of pointless conference calls.. hmmm when does one actually do the work???

Anyway, hope the day finds you all well. I saw a glimpse of sunshine today... the grey of winter tends to depress my mood though I must say, all is well, no real complaints

Wanted to pass along my newest "DREAM JOB" while paging through cooking magazines we stumbled across some reviews for frying pans and skillets. There was actauly a test done where the pan was bashed against the concrete 3 times to see how it would withstand the beating. NOw that's a job I want.... POT SMASHER Perhaps we could modify it a bit .... I could smask just about anything light enough for me to pick up... heck, I'd even use a hammer if needed! Wonder what a pot smasher resume looks like? SO keep your eyes on the classifieds... if a pot smasher is needed in your area let me know

Have a great day everyone!

FORGOT TO ADD.... happy National Peanut Butter day!!! (one of my most favorite food groups)

Okay...

*sighs and steps tentatively onto the steps up into the train*

I AM READY FOR THIS! What I have always needed...

A Train that keeps me on the tracks towards Hope and Healing!

Today, after 40+ years of abuse from the primary support/family/spouse/children as well as self sabotage, I am committing to Hope and Healing.

FOR ME.

FOR MY 20y Beautiful Daughter and 13y Charming Son.

But for ME!

I'm ready to 'live my life in a manner that cultivates universal justice, gratitude, and compassion!'....

What's a girl gotta do to find the club car? I'm Hungry!

Welcome aboard libm!

If only IWBH would stop going off on these extended jaunts to the Far East, there would be more cakes and other delicious vegetarian delights.

But TJ and GSG are no slouches in the food department. Just head off to the Bar Car while you're waiting.

Welcome, let it be me! Okay, now I'll have that song stuck in my head..

We have cars of every description. Club, lounge, dining, padded , Yoga/Ravi Shankar (sp), kitchen/galley...Club car has beverages of all sorts, whatever anyone wishes. Cold, hot, wine, non-alcoholic, tea, and the ever-present coffee. Typically, some one will offer up some food.

Tonight, there is chicken soup and blueberry muffins.

Oh, the exercise car has a brand new exercise bike.

Per SerJr, fear is the great paralyser. Do nothing, nothing changes. We are each of us worthy, with value and dignity. No one shall take those from me, us, again.

Two cuppas down, one more to go. Decaf Pumpkin spice after dinner. Oh, there is a spa car also.

Peace.

TJ
