Lots to tell and no time to tell it. Going to post a little bit at a time, and hopefully catch up from LAST WEEK, at least.
Here’s cheerleading on Friday evening…
Friday night was the UofT vs.Ottawa womenâ€™s volleyball quarter-finals, where
It was a slaughter â€“ Ottawa got smacked down in just 3 short games (itâ€™s best out of 5) â€“ and we didnâ€™t even have time to lose our voices from screaming, despite our best efforts. One of the girls on the Toronto team is a powerhouse, and has been dubbed â€œRussiaâ€ by the Lindsay Cheering Squad. Any time she touches the ball, thereâ€™s a chorus of â€œGive them the hammerâ€¦ and also the sickle!â€ or the Russian national anthem, and, very occasionally, a â€œWhereâ€™s Stalin now?â€
We’ll be returning to watch the women take on Laurier on Friday the 27th, and rumour has it that certain persons in our group have become so fired up about heading into the finals that they are MAKING THEIR OWN POMPOMS. Maybe I’ll wear a short skirt this week, and pretend I’m a cheerleader.
…through to taxes Friday night and motorcycle visitation Saturday morning.
After the game, tried to find time to share a pint at the Ferret with my friends, since I havenâ€™t seen the High Park crew often enough lately, but as usual I had to run run run to catch the GOTrain home to Oakville so I could meet Mum and start sorting tax papers (finally!).
We stayed up too late going through tax forms and (endless, endless) comic book receipts, trying vainly to figure out a way to make my collection of graphic novels a business expense and therefore deductible.
The morning was sluggish, but we did make time to drive over to Judyâ€™s greenhouse so I could look longingly at the chrome prettiness of my motorcycle and wish for warmer weather and clear roads.
More soon to come (I hope)!
