    My car says it's -36C out today.

    What the ever loving eff. I still have to walk my doggo today.
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    2018. Seems like just yesterday I was in 7th grade, figuring out how old I'd be in the year 2000, which sounded so futuristic. We were all going to be beaming around like on Star Trek, or at the very least, have flying cars like on The Jetsons. Well, in any case, here we are. Happy New Year! I've got the house un-decorated for the most part and am cooking turkey today.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Today I got my ID card and text books. I will start going back to college next week on Monday. I'm so looking forward to it. It won't interfere too much with my job. I'll be taking only two classes this quarter. I'm really excited.

    Temps rose to -11c! Going camping this weekend while the weather stays warm - supposed to drop back to -30c by Monday.

    Gotta enjoy it while I can. Guys, it's warm enough to snow!

    Ross Miner is totally my ice skating crush this year. Hope he makes the Olympic team - we'll know in the a.m.

    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    The sound of snoring really drives me up the wall. Even the "cute" cat snores are enough to make me cringe and poke the cat to make it stop. Hubby's passed out on the couch right now and snoring up a storm. About to throw something at him to wake him up.

    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v2)

    This has been an insane holiday season... I've been shifting to a weekend option at work since August, which means that my Fridays-Sundays have been completely overtaken by that (12 hour days), plus all of other time spent in deep cleaning/prepping/cooking/celebrating that comes with the holidays. I just found out that I'll be getting a weekend contract which means working only Saturday and Sunday, but getting paid of 36 hours. I will drop down to part time benefits, but it's worth it for another day off. Now I just have my daughter's birthday to do this weekend and maybe life will return to a semblance of normal...
    Service to your fellows is the root of peace.

    Saved all my packing to the last minute, like usual. Woke up early this morning to pack, and finish getting ready to fly to work. Find out my car battery is dead, thanks to the -37C weather this morning. Call a taxi - the whole town is apparently taking taxis. 25 minutes later, still no cab, so I call my partner and ask him to drive home from work and grab me, because I'm going to miss my flight.

    I get out of the truck, and promptly break the wheel off my suitcase thanks to the cold. I squeak in just mere minutes before check-in cutoff to find out that my flight is cancelled. They can't repro me to the other airline because I'm staff. My boss doesn't answer his phone.

    So now I'm not flying to work until Sunday, which is great, I suppose - but I don't know if I'm being paid for the next two days unless I talk to my boss. So I'm likely out two days pay, I'm going to miss my shift bartending tomorrow night (I work two jobs in Iqaluit), and I had to call my spouse away from work for a SECOND time this morning to come pick me up.

    My car is still dead, but hey...I've got an extra day off? Silver linings, right?

    My grandfather died today... I found out from my dad's status update on Facebook. I don't even really know what to think.
