The baddest ass President we’ve ever had.
obama is my favorite president and he’s not even mine
i want him to be my president
this makes me sad that i live in canada
this makes me even more angry that we have a tool like David Cameron.
are you kidding me this is obama on a skateboard i want to marry that man why is he so cool
I get to teach in a couple different settings: As part of my grad school work, I’ve taught several classes. And here, with all of you, in the world’s most interesting science classroom.
What’s my favorite thing? That moment when someone GETS it, and those tiny little squinchy stress muscles in their face relax and they go “ohhhhhhh” and on rare occasions even smile … that’s like crack cocaine mixed with meth for me (I assume that’s what it’s like, anyway, having never tried either). Nothing like the a-ha moment.
That and knowing that through hard work and personal connection and respect and commitment and graciousness and patience you can help influence someone’s life for the better. It can be as simple as giving them a sense of accomplishment for the afternoon and maybe making their day, or as significant as steering them to a whole new path in life. I’ve been lucky enough to do both, and everything in between, and it makes me feel humbled with joy.
And of course, I hear the money’s good … HA!
Stay curious and you’ll discover great things.
I can’t stop laughing at his face
So I talk about my sister alot and she needs help. YOUR help to be precise. Lynx holding a competition of sorts to send people to space camp and the like. Now, my sister is studying to become an astrophysicist and this would be an AMAZING opportunity for the darling.
If you could be so kind as to click on the link and vote for her to get a place she will be ever so grateful! It only takes like 10 seconds to enter your email address!
And if you like you can enter yourself too!
So the holidays got to be a bore once everyone but me returned to work and so I decided to do the obligatory wardrobe purge. Now I got so wrapped up in the task that I forgot to take a picture of how much I decided was no longer wanted but it looked a little something like this:
Just with a lot lest colour.
I managed to rope my sister into becoming a packed mule and trudging down to our local charity shoot to drop off all the unwanteds before my mother caught sight of them and had a cow.
My wardrobe now looks like this:
With a massive gaping hole in the middle that NO SHOP has had the decency to fill. It’s so bare its sad. I went to every shop in Westfield and found nothing that I liked. (Save for a pair of boots…I needed to stop walking around in snow boots…it was wishful thinking really….)
I then went to Oxford Street. Still nowt. Save for two jumpers that I already owned but in the colours I do not.
I just want it to be summer again so I can unpack this:
and wear all the colourful flowy skirts and dresses again! Damn you London with your lack of snow and lukewarm summers. Bastard.
Anyhow. There was a selection of unwanteds that I could not part with so easily for some reason or another so I’ve listed them in a new section on this smashing blog of mine with the aptly named ‘Shop’ which can be found here:
See? Easy! Let me know if anything takes your fancy. I’m going to relist it all on ebay or something at some point if that makes it easier.
That’s enough outta me. It took an age to list all that but now its done. Woo!
Despite Notting Hill being one of my favourite haunts, the arrival of the super mall Westfield in Stratford has lead me to abandon visiting anywhere west of E1. As a result, I morph into a snap happy tourist on the rare occasion I mange to bare a train journey longer than 15 minutes.
We watched a live relay of The Nutcracker ballet in the recently refurbished Electric Cinema on Portobello Road.
This cinema is stunning. Leather sofas, those adorable table lights and a bar that also serves cheeseburgers and hotdogs along side cajan peppers and shrimp cocktails.
And the booking office!
They still have the fire buckets
You know. In case of a fire.
(Awful photo I know but it was dark and I had to use the flash)
Me and Ani then went back TWO DAYS LATER to watch the Hobbit. How was it? Excellent. Although I haven’t been keeping up to date with the entertainment world and wasn’t aware that they had split the book into three movies or something. Hence, and two hours in, I was exhausted!
‘They haven’t even reached the mountain yet! And WHO KNOWS what’s gonna come outta there for them to fight! How much longer can this go on?!’
And then the credits began to roll and I left feeling slighted cheated and red faced but excited at the realization that there is more from Middle Earth to come! Huzzah!
I also discovered this:
Bubble tea! From Bubbleology! Its like herbal tea with bizarre squishy balls (I’ve been told these are tapioca balls…whatever that is…). The passionfruit tea I love. I love tea. The squishy balls? Not so much. They taste fine but it’s the consistency of them… yuk. Have also since discovered they have a pop up shop in Westfield Stratford. I had the lychee cold there recently which was beautiful. And avoiding the balls is a fun game. *giggles like a child*
Finally, my youthful friends and I went to the Tabernacle to watch the panto ‘Oliver Twisted’. It was pretty darn funny. May have been down to my recent discover of raspberry flavoured vodka but yes…very funny!
Obliviously this is very very much a latergram so I cannot for the life of me remember what else Notting Hill held in store that had be so excited about it a month ago…. must be old age….
