Almost done...  
Last day of the training class, and it reminds me of the ending to this Calvin and Hobbes "Adventures of Spaceman Spiff" cartoon (I was finally able to track it down):



"This class lasts forever" is right. Argh!

Since most of the week has been spent with the overhead projector being used, the lights have been out in the room all day. Yes folks-- I've been trapped in a cave for four days. :(

Weekend plans: biking (at last!), working on back bathroom (paint trim, put up fixtures), date on Saturday (2 dates in 2 1/2 months I think-- hate this time of year), aand there'd better be some productive writing to finish the Sweet Charity fic.

Oh! Must also book Wincon plane tix. Why do I keep forgetting?

Oh, how I hate home renovations. :( Good luck with yours.

Can you let me know how to get info on Wincon? Your post reminded me. Oh, and I'm reminding you back. LOL

Thanks!

This LJ comm, winchestercon, has the information, and there may still be some spots left! Hope so. :D

I love the Calvin and Hobbes analogy. I love that comic and so feel Calvin sums up life.

I think we might have allll the anthologies (my husband was a huge fan before I even knew who Calvin and Hobbes were), and there are so many that I love. The one above really sticks out. Then there's another one where Calvin asks what it's like kissing a girl, and Hobbes kisses him and Calvin says "Gack! I was hoping it wouldn't be so fuzzy!" (I expect everyone hopes kissing won't be fuzzy). And then there's the "Want some cereal?" "What is it?" "Chocolate-frosted sugar bombs." "No thanks-- they make my heart skip."

Now that I'm older, I know exactly what Hobbes means by that. Sugar Babies make my heart skip-- and not in a "ooh, Jensen" kind of way, either. :0
