Lazy update

Had a late night playing poker last night. I did pretty well and then rode my bike home through the gauntlet of cruisers in the park at two in the morning. (What, it was on my way, a little late night theater is always fun.) It'd be a little frightening if I didn't know they were just looking for sex.

Do you think it suggests I have a gambling problem that the hotel comped me four nights in July? Actually, I've never been comped before so it was rather exciting to receive that offer. I'm giddy as all getout for the upcoming annual Vegas junket with Rebekah.

What else? I turned in my last evaluations this week and completed all my paperwork, so I guess I'm officially off until mid August. I just do a little tutoring on Mondays and that's it. All week, the permagrin on my face is getting broader and broader. Off, off off, nothing better than being off! I'm trying not to gloat about it (oops too late) but it's truly a wonderful thing.

I'm reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad right now (thanks Donna) and I'm really happy to see that I have more qualities of the Rich Dad. Unfortunately spouse is Poor Dad all the way. I see that they have it translated in French, but I don't know if foisting it on spouse will have any impact. (ie he won't read it)

Finally a nice weekend here, and just in time, the international fireworks competition starts tonight and the whole city is going to come out. Tomorrow it's supposed to be over 30 (90) degrees! Until then, peace. (well after too)

No doubt about it, there's nothing better than being off! I envy you teachers!
I'm not complaining, though. I do get 6 weeks vacation a year, better than most professions.

Wow, I'd love to see a fireworks competition!

You suck, you know, for having that much time off. Grrr.

Have a fabulous weekend, TW!

It took me a minute to realize that cruisers were men and not police cars.

Nice that you're (mostly) off for the summer now. Enjoy!

Fireworks contest? NEver heard of such.

As for the 90 degrees...we have had our 3rd day of it. I FINALLY turned on the AC this week.

How do you deal with everyone hating you because you're off all summer and they're not? I seriously considered teaching for that alone, until I heard too many people say they hated it with a passion. Don't need my grouchy ass training the leaders of tomorrow.

Oooh-Whoo – Summer Vacation! No More Students and their Dirty Looks! Paaaaaaarty! Whoo!

Okay, I am done.

I don’t know Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Does its title suggest, though, that you and Spouse are considering children?

I HATE work. As a concept, it sucks. I like the concept of fun much better.

Kalvin said...

Eek, that sounds so hot! And there's something so fun about seeing people cruising for sex even if you aren't. Why is that? Hope you are enjoying the vacation!

It seems to me that it's very hard to reconcile two people's different attitude towards money. Perhaps the only solution is always maintain separate bank accounts, in addition to the joint one.

Its 40C with the humidex and disgusting here in Toronto.

I think that you are more like Rich dad and Serge is more like Poor dad is a lovely balance. You will never allow the two of you to become poor and he will never allow the two of you to become rich. It is a lovely way to be I think! hahah!

Have fun, it's only damn money anyway!

Stay cool in your hot city!

I read Rich Dad, Poor Dad and was disgusted and appalled by it. Guess I will be poor forever.
