    "Ireland’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny prepares to cast his vote at a polling station at St Anthony’s School in Castlebar, Ireland, Friday Feb. 26, 2016."

    I love that name.... Enda Kenny. :D

    I was looking up at the one star powerful enough to defy the light pollution and began to wonder if I was looking down.

    Maybe you were.

    In other news, I just did my first 3d fractal rendering last night:

    I'm also trying to get an animation going. Here's the preview:

    Apparently, there's something about me that makes my friends want to ignore me for months without satisfactory explanation. This has happened four times, with four different friends. Okay, one of those times there was an actual reason, but if you ask me it was a horribly stupid one.

    Remember how I didn't end up seeing Deadpool Thursday night? Well, we've rescheduled it for tomorrow night, which is no easy feat--making sure that a half dozen college students' class and work schedules coordinate for three hours on a weeknight is enough to give anyone a migraine.

    And now we're hearing there's going to be another snowstorm tomorrow night.

    $%*@!

    Today one of my students, who was reading in the library area of the classroom called out "Ms. Velka, I barked!". Now, this kid is an odd duck, so I didn't think much of it, and reminded him that the library was for quiet reading and to save his animal noises for recess. He then popped his head up from behind the bookshelf and said "No, I barked. I barked everywhere!"

    I went over the to library area to figure out what was going on. Turns out he barfed. He barfed everywhere.

    I took him down to the office. When we walked in he proudly announced to our office admin that he barked everywhere in the library. She looked at him, covered in vomit, and the trashcan he was holding, and without batting an eyelash told him to be sure to bark into the trashcan if he needed to again.

    He nodded knowingly and went to lie down on the cot while she called home.

  7. Just got done with a job interview and attended the viewing of a beloved football coach if mine. I hope he's calling power 36 wherever he is right now.

    Velka, as a fellow teacher.... Lol.

    I teach Middle School right now though, so not so much barking.... Unless it's ironic puking noises made when girls are talking about guys their friends like.

    Unfortunately there is far too much barking involved in grade 2. Especially now as a stomach bug is wreaking havoc throughout our school. My classroom is a petrie dish of disease.

    My washing machine has been working overtime this weekend cleaning the pillows and blankets from my library area and the green-machine managed to save the area rug. I'm just forever thankful that he somehow managed to miss barking on any books other than the one he was reading.

  12. I was o line in little league, didn't play past that and in retrospect that was a good thing health wise for me, but that was my favorite play. I sealed the inside and got to blast the middle linebacker. I'm gonna miss coachie.

    You are right about it being the best for your health. I have reached the age where I can feel all those old injuries again. But I would not change a thing.
     
  14. I sometimes regret my decision, I loved playing, but after discovering a cyst on the bone where my knee rests and almost needing a complete replacement I can't say I made the wrong call. Still, I would love to coach little league. After seeing the difference coachie made in my life and in others I want to be that guy. Maybe when G-baby gets bigger and decides to play.

    I coached High School and other football for about 10 years. Found it one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.,

    Gah!

    Was horrible sick a week ago Wednesday. Made work a real nightmare. Got better, then came down with the 'intense sniffles' a couple days ago - just as I was finally making some headway on the WIP. Past experience tells me I'm in for a week or ten days of congested misery. It also tells me I should lay off the rewriting/editing for a day or three - requires a degree of mental sharpness I don't have.

    I had last week off work to celebrate my birthday and guess what happened? I woke up on my birthday with a stinking cold. I couldn't go out to celebrate, all food tasted horrible and the week off was wasted.

    But "luckily", I got better just in time to go back to work. Funny how often that happens, isn't it?

    Love triangles make no sense. If it formed a triangle then each person would be interested in the person not interested in them. :confused:

    Apparently our calico is terrified of moose. She saw one for the first time today out the window facing the backyard. She fluffed up and raced across the house to the kitchen window, swatted her tail a few times, then went and hid in the bedroom. The poor girl was so scared that it took me a minute to coax her out, then she just went and hid again lol. The funniest part of it though is that even after the moose was long gone, she was apprehensive about peering out the window. :p
