It's for a class to enhance my career. And also pretty fun too.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Fridays are my half day (M-Th I work 9-hour days), but I could not get out until 1:00 today. Not bad, and it ended up working out well. Got home, got lunch, took Siddy to the vet.

Where she was shamelessly flattered by the new doc. Heh. Sid is fourteen, and extremely fit and healthy. She's also just so well behaved at the vet. I am SICKENINGLY lucky to have her - only hope she's lucky to have me.

We got home *just* as the skies were about to open up, too!

She's now lying a few feet away, sighing heavily (contentment or ennui? I can't tell!), still pleased with herself for her new conquest at the vet. Best Monkey Ever!

Apologies for being the double-poster, but gnocchi with pesto and tomato sauce warrants a "best thing today" amen. Yum!

Learned a new recipe over the weekend.

Go you, Diane. :D

The cast is off! Now only a few more weeks of excruciating physical therapy. Can already type with all fingers, but still stiff. Makes for short sentences!

Being wrong about my letter grade, it turned out to be higher.

I got a HUGE vase of flowers today--roses, Gerber daisies, peonies, gladiolas, and a bird of paradise.

It wasn't even my birthday. It was a thank you from the colleague about whom I wrote a retirement speech!
