Heading North

The plan is to fly to Manitoba today, see polar bears, then fly back to Burbank on Thursday.

But it’s oh-so-complicated. Everyone wants proof of vaccination. Cool, no problem. But Canada also wants a covid test. So I stroll up to the Air Canada counter with my passport, my vaccination card, my ArriveCan QR code, and a printout of the covid PCR test (negative, of course they want the expensive kind). Then I get to fly to Winnipeg via Vancouver, and I’m nervous about the arrival in Vancouver because I have to show all my proof again. I don’t know why I’m nervous. I don’t plan to lose my phone or my proof before boarding begins.

I stay two nights in a Winnipeg hotel, and on Monday morning before work, I get to take an antigen covid test so I can get back into the US on Thursday morning, then I work all day on my laptop.

Full Circle

Yesterday was Wonder Woman Day...go to 2:20 if you want to see the start of a scene where I precisely recall dialogue I read in 1973.

Don't ask me my office phone number or what time I have to be at the bus stop, but I know what Wonder Woman said on a top right panel in the middle of a story from 48 years ago.

Talking Her Up

Here I am, talking about Wonder Woman. 

Some of the info is a bit off, but that's okay.

Where's My Lasso?

This is a little too small for me but would have fit kid Marie in the 1970s...she would have been thrilled to wear it everywhere!

Not Really A Problem

I’m having a hard time deciding which cookie to eat.

He May Never Forgive Me for "Fixing" Him

Look, it's Bart the Feral Flash Cat!

He's hanging out in the yard next to the convent. Bart's looking healthy.

Hand Built

This is a basic pinch pot I made out of leftover clay because I only had 20 minutes left of class.

I like how it came out, for once.
