Another Thinking Out Loud Thursday – linking with Amanda from Running with Spoons
#1 Warming Trend?
Look at this – the temperature looks as if it won’t go below -20C next week. THANK GOODNESS. I’ve had about enough of winter. Next week’s weather is looking great for getting back out and running outside! Apparently this cold has been good for some things, including the Rideau Canal having an amazing season for the World’s largest ice rink. 47 straight days (as of yesterday) of skating on the canal, a new record. Normally we have a couple of warm days throughout winter. I don’t think Ottawa has experience “warm” since right before Christmas! Remember when we didn’t have snow in December, Ottawa?
#2 Pink Laces
Since I am a SweatPink ambassador, I get access to free pink shoe laces that I can distribute to people. I’ve given away tons to the track team over the past year and last week I gave out another 2 dozen or so pairs of pink laces. Of course, it is the boys who are all into it. A few of them laced up their new pink laces and did their start drills together.
#3 Speaking of Warm
We have been using lots of Photoshop in my Comm Tech class. I’ve been demoing some of the features, using this sunset picture. I’ve put some funny saying in the title, the colder it is outside, the more nutty the title. We like to think that this sunset picture makes us feel warm
#4 What is with….
Drivers not using their signals? I mean seriously, it isn’t that hard. I can get not using your signal when there is absolutely no one around – but in an urban setting, there are cars, people and buses to look out for. This one guy today slammed on his brakes and then sat in the lane, then decided to turn – no signal and not realizing that there were three cars behind him. The right hand turn and lack of signalling is a big pet peeve of mine. OR when you see that a car is waiting at an intersection/leaving a parking lot and waiting for you to pass in order to make a turn – and the person doesn’t signal and you could have turned. Use your signals!
#5 This was delicious:
But I think the leftovers I had for my lunch gave me massive indigestion. Last night sucked because I felt off all night 🙁
#6 Take away my “Breaking Bad” Fan card
I have yet to watch a single episode of “Better Call Saul”. I knew it was starting soon, but totally missed the premiere date and haven’t watched any of the show yet. I think one night I should really just sit down and stream the show. Mad Men should be starting up again soon. It comes down to really not having time to watch much TV. I do ensure that I sit down to watch Grey’s on Thursdays (I PVR it though) – but that is pretty much it. Last night I didn’t watch a single minute of TV, since I had Photoshop work to do. One day….
Alright – time to demo some more Photoshop stuff!
Have a great day!
