  1. Invade Vancouver again! We love Alberta plates roving around town 😛
  2. So cruel. Doubly so for that backhanded insult to my summer sport. Contrary to popular opinion, curling is a physically demanding sport. Precision, not raw force, is the name of the game. But don't take my word for it, I'll let the laddies and ladies speak for themselves.
  3. That's awful. I'm fortunate that my district is well funded. The first week after spring break, we phoned all of our students and confirmed who needed internet and device access. The district then went and provided laptops and wifi access to all of our struggling students, free of charge to the families. Those devices will be expected to be returned either at the end of this school year, or the beginning of the next school year. I'm not certain, but I do know that all my students have the technical ability to communicate with me. That ability hasn't always translated into a willingness, but nothing to be done on that one... Returning to the story a bit, I was thinking a bit about my own athletic career at that age, and how well I would have been treated by the Heritage kids. I play baseball and curl. It seems like the baseball kids don't get a lot of respect at Heritage, and I can only think about what would be said about curling based on what was said about gymnastics and other sports. For those who don't know much about curling, it's not a brute force sport. There's a lot of finesse involved, and while sweeping definitely requires strong upper body and arm muscles, the actual act of throwing a rock isn't as much about throwing the rock as much as it's about perfectly controlling your own body on a sheet of ice. So there's a lot of held muscle positions, especially with the legs and lower body. I know from firsthand experience even in Canada that most people who haven't curled scoff at how much effort is needed, and then try it only to find themselves sore the following day. That, or they just fling stones across the sheet and fail miserably. So I can appreciate the position of the gymnastics team about not being given much credit for their skills.
  4. I am, but just until June. Then we're ordered back to class while our students can (optional to the students) join us for one day a week per student for instruction. It promises to be a catastrophe of enormous proportions, but I don't have seniority so I can't say anything.
  5. I have done poorly in not tending to this thread. I don't wish to push @craftingmom, but have we heard any updates on what might be happening with the story? It's a fine piece of literature, and now that I'm a teacher I get to look at the story with a brand new perspective.
  6. Thank god Vancouver Pride is finally over. Can't wait for Burnaby Pride tomorrow!

     

    ....someone please rescue me. 😐

      @wildone me too! That was hours of trying to talk up the organization I was representing. My voice was shot by the end, and on Saturday we go again!

  7. Oh yes, burning it. With fire and brimstone and all the superheated plasma I can find. Nighty night tim, sleep well!
  8. That sounds super exciting, I"m looking forward to reading it
  9. Thank you! No idea when I'll finish with it, but it'll be good to start publishing here on GA again What's been new for you sweetie? We keep missing each other in the busyness of life.
  10. I'm doing okay. Hanging out with friends, lighting my thesis on fire, collecting EI because I'm summer jobless again... the usual things people do when they have no idea what to do with themselves. Heck, I even started writing a new novel, how's that for surprising?
  11. You mean that thing I'm literally about to light on fire? I'm done, fed up, won't do it anymore.
  12. It seems like everyone is starting to recover from their mid-summer maladies.
  13. He knew what he was doing when he dressed like that.
  14. I'm glad that you're starting to recover. I hope you're able to take the time you need to get better
  15. One way or the other, my master's degree will be ending soon. I am done with the games.
