Perhaps the redesign was a little premature...

Yesterday I accepted the Executive Director position with the Alberta Fencing Association. So perhaps I still am the Queen of Swords...

Overheard today in a Chapters washroom...

"Mummy, why does pee make the water turn yellow?"


"Mummy, I wish I didn't have ears."
"Why, honey?"
"Because if I didn't have ears, then I wouldn't hear all the loud noises."

Ah. Children. :)

A Sad Post

Fondly, we bid farewell to Sherman and Herman. You were with us such a short time, but alas, I fear the tanks were too clean for the likes of you. We have learned from you, though, and in your honour, we rename the live plants housed with Ferrari and Ducati Sherman and Herman. May they live and prosper as you did not.

Yesterday, I gave up fencing. By Monday, my equipment will be washed and packed, and will be stored at Mom and Dad's for the duration of my exile. When my hands are better enough to be at the computer for more than just work and the occasional post, I will redesign my weblog to reflect that no longer am I the Queen of Swords. This is so painful. I can barely think of it without being brought to tears. And so this post ends.

Fishy picture's late, and I can't come up with a better title. Here is a link to a picture of where Ducati and Ferrari live. It's changed look a little, as we had to replace the marbles with gravel to support the live plant we put in each tank, but it's still pretty much the same. Oh, and we added a snail to each tank. Their names are Herman and Sherman. ...err...don't ask... Close-ups may have to wait. It's hard taking pictures through plastic and water.
