Who's a good boy? Poor guy has been trapped inside for three days since it has been raining non-stop for an equal amount of time. This has put the kibosh on the magnolia tree blooming across the street. Perhaps it will when the sun comes out on Saturday as they are predicting.
Our election is over and done. In case you don't know, we elected a conservative majority government. When I woke up Tuesday I went right to the TV and flipped on the news and read the ticker in horror: Gouvernement Conservative Majoritaire Elu. The only result I didn't want and now here it is. When I went to the LAtimes website, I plugged in "Canada" in the search box. Not one story about the election. There was something about recalled cranberries though that included the fact that some of the recalled items had been shipped to Canada. At least CNN had a (tiny) blurb on the matter, but honestly when your next door neighbor renovates their house, how can you not notice?
I booked us a little junket the last part of Memorial day weekend. A quick big apple trip Sunday to Tuesday. I want to see a show, shop at Century 21 and eat at Nobu. We're staying at the Best Western in Chinatown where internet and breakfast are free. I'm sick of four star hotels gauging you for everything. That's why I bid on a 2.5 star hotel on Priceline for our upcoming (60 sleeps) San Francisco trip which is part of a Lake Tahoe family reunion trip. I was very happy to get the Hotel Whitcomb for exactly half the price listed on their website.
I decided to defriend all my students on Facebook. Since I'm a real college teacher now, it's important to keep that professional distance. My rebellious side didn't want to do it, but I guess I'm finally making peace with the man. I know I've been lax in my blog reading duties, I have so much to catch up on but I just don't have the time. Please don't take it personally! I'll check back in later this weekend. Cheers!
