+ My mother is determined to emotionally manipulate me into getting my teachers' certification. I explained to her, calmly, the reasons I do not want to be a classroom teacher (she already knew this when I signed up for the arts administration version of teacher's college over a year ago, so not so much with the shocking!), that certification is an annual thing and requires money I don't have, as someone who is unemployed. And then I gave her a copy of my action research paper, about arts-integrated learning in the classroom and storytelling making the world a better place and she STARTED TO CRY. I don't even know.

+ For the first in five years, I am not moving for September, so I have cleaned and rearranged my room. There is a wall (WALL) of books and also my bed is no longer under a skylight. I hope this means that come winter, I will not get dripped on by said skylight in early morning thaw.

+ Minikilts are unlikely in my future. Good/Bad? Your call.

+ For something completely different: a few icons (Yukon Music Post still coming), made ages ago, of the summer Olympics (Canadian Men's Triathlon Team and Men's 8+ in Rowing). I find it hilarious that the men's triathlon team did a number of photoshoots... and I love that on their racing suits Canada gets abbreviated to "CAN". Jenkins Can! Whitfield Can! It's very optimistic.

Warning: Lots of Red and White. )

So there's this movie, All Hat, about the scrap of the world that I like to call home. It's about pretty boys (Luke Kirby, David Alpay), pretty girls (Lisa Ray, Rachel Leigh Cook), pretty horses (thoroughbreds!), pretty Southern Ontario (give or take some housing developments), pretty Ford pickups (which, you know, we all drive) and lots, and lots of plaid flannel shirts. Did I mention that it's pretty?

Comments are nice! Credit isn't necessary.
