Tonight has brought cool spring showers, and warm toasty fires.
I had the pleasure of speaking at a Big Sisters fundraiser today after work.
I’ve been a Big for three and a half years, and recently signed up to be a media program ambassador. Basically I get to go to different events and extol the virtues of this seriously amazing, life changing organization.
This role is great fun, and is rad as heck. I love working with this association, and want to do whatever I can in my power to raise awareness and funds for their different initiatives, while at the same time stoking, or perhaps piquing the interest of potential Bigs.
It was such a pleasure to chat with the attendees after I had given my speech, and relay a bit more about my relationship with my Little, and what is required of all prospective volunteers.
After a long day at work, and then participating in the fundraiser, it is pretty nice to be sitting here with Ms. Nymeria and Mr. M.
We’re watching Serenity while working, and purring, and writing, and planning.
Boy do I ever love me some Captain Tight-Pants. (For those of you unsure as to what I’m talking about, I promise you, it’s not my husband.)
And I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of the Oaty Bar theme song either.
Also, Nathan Fillion re-tweeted me the other day, which was pretty darn fabitty fab in the extreme.
Today I went back to Club Monaco to purchase my sparkly, pleated beauty skirt. Of course, since I’m a complete broomhead, I forgot my student card, so I ended up having to put it on hold for purchase tomorrow.
And you better believe that I will be there with bells on (along with the proper funds and student ID requirements.)
It will be mine, oh yes.
One Skirt to rule them all; One Skirt to find them; One Skirt to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.
What was I saying?
Oh yes. I will keep you abreast on this story (and my madness) as it progresses.
Also, I am very proud to say that I ate a healthy breakfast this morning.
Or at least healthy by my standards, Mlle. Beignet au Pomme.
Granny smith apple and organic crunchy almond butter? Cor, I am in absolute heaven.
(Just for the sake of full disclosure, I want to stress that I didn’t eat the entire container of almond butter. I may have wanted to, but I’m proud to say that restraint was exercised.)
So there you have it.
Today is Tuesday.
There is a new government in Alberta, with the first female premier elected as head of the province; Ontario remains just beyond the cusp of an election, and Quebec may soon be heading down the same road.
Also we’ll see what happens in France as they move into their next phase of voting.
Oh, and Yertle the Turtle, a great picture book written by DR. SEUSS has been banned from B.C. Classrooms for being “too political.”
It would seem the phrase, “I know up on top you are seeing great sights, but down here on the bottom, we too should have rights” is too contentious a topic for the province’s youn, impressionable, and highly malleable minds.
Someone get me a fainting couch, because I’m clutching my pearls for all of Canada.
What do you all think, my lovely readers? Have we finally crossed the line?
And how was your Tuesday?
I want to hear all about it.
And extra points if you can do it in rhyme.
