Algebra. Just that word makes me want to grimace. Homeschooling Monkey is getting tricky as we approach the higher maths, which can be frustrating for everyone in the house. Chatted with Godfather about this and he said he’d be willing to do some tutoring for us, since math is cakework for him. Nice to know Someone understands it. 🙂 I’m quite looking forward to it, though. Almost finished with the US history book we’re working through, and then it’s time to broaden horizons.
Lunch today with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. Looking forward to catching up. Yoga class continues to be a source of amusement for me. Some of the poses we do are just a riot. It’s hard for me to not gigglesnickerchuckle in the middle of them. I try not to since I’m pretty sure people would think I was laughing at them, rather than the ideas my brain gives me about the actual movements. And some of them just make me feel silly. The first week was Zombie yoga, this week was Surfing yoga. It keeps me grinning though…..
Played around a bit with Bear’s tattoo machine last eve. He’s got this fake skin and was working on that, then on an orange. The difference in the way the two took the ink was amazing. Not sure how ‘skin-like’ the fake skin is. Certainly less supple and the orange really shows it if you cut the skin, rather than inking it. Also, it smells really good. 😉 Tattooing is hard on the hands though, I can totally see how you’d build strength there. Those machines are heavy.
You know those things that happen to friends and you wish you could help, but all you can really do is be there if they need you? I’ve one of those at the moment. All I can say is: Man, I know it’s heavy. I’m here to help lighten the load if I can. Even if it’s just with booze and food and a bit of a laugh.
