The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors

Practically Friday, already

This week has sure slipped away. Christopher's team won their basketball championship on Sunday - \o/ Then he got sick and was home for several days. Lots of recurring fevers, like I had last week. Good thing I made that extra trip to the library last Saturday, or he'd have run out of books. :0

I got actual stuff done at work this week. So nice to make major progress without intervening thrashing! I hope to finish some project milestones by the end of tomorrow.

Today, I biked my Amnesia Route for the first time in 3+ months. The prevailing winds were favorable, and I'm sick of my regular route.

Looks like there really is a farm with small horses along that main back road. Shetland ponies, perhaps? They were pretty small, but not 'pygmy' small. Last year, I think I saw 1-2, but today there were at least 6-7 in various colors. It was overcast and the air was damp, so I heard lots of frogs in wet fields. I got some sprinkles, which made me nervous (I was still 9 miles from the office), but it didn't actually rain. Lucky break!

This weekend, I'll be brainstorming an LJ Idol Intersection entry with similiesslip, trying to finish my taxes (must make phone calls tomorrow), and tossing bones/burning incense in the hope that it doesn't rain next week while we're off on spring break. Currently, there's some rain targeted for (what else?) one of our beach days. NOOOooooo!
