The sun is trying to shine

The sun is actually trying to shine, although this is another picture from Saturday morning. I promise, promise to get my camera out and about hopefully since I've been pretty slack since August.

I had a bagel for breakfast. It was really good. I don't eat them very often which makes them a really nice treat. Exciting enough to even mention on my poor neglected blog. I have to thank the travel gods for a very smooth trip, including being able to leave early from Winnipeg. I did forget to bring some movies with me, but I guess they'll be waiting for whenever I have time to watch them. In the meantime, I'm finally getting around to watching Firefly, which I think has been on my list of things to do since I was working security at UNB. (There is nothing like working a security shift in partners for getting excellent book, movie and tv recommendations. I have done some knitting and I'm about to start on another pair of socks (purples and greens in Knitpicks "wool of the andes" on my brand new mini addi turbo cable needle.) I'm looking forward to testing out the cable needle - as its really improved my hats and hopefully it'll get the corner lines out of my socks. Harder to keep your count and decreases straight, but worth trying.

My flight was my first Westjet experience and I have to admit that I was impressed with their service. The ladies at the ticket counter made it really pleasant to switch up my ticket. Once again, I had the pleasure of a full patdown at the Winnipeg airport. I think I've only managed to avoid it on one flight through there. I'm just unlucky, since its random. I don't think I look sketchy - and I'm a teacher for goodness sake and friendly. They are pretty professional, but I still hate it, even if it means better security and a safer flight.

The head stewardess on the westjet flight was a riot singing to us about hippopotami and and pretty much managing to make the safety lecture into a somewhat manic, but very amusing stand-up routine. I wonder if they have drama auditions as part of their hiring process. I knit and chatted with a RCMP officer next to me. There are some pretty cool folk who are part of the RCMP. I may have to switch careers one day. Although, I don't know if I have the temperment for policing anything more than unruly university drunks and hormone-infused adolescents. But, the uniforms are decent and I'd like to learn how to ride a horse.

Anywho, I'd better finish this up and get my butt outside to take some more pictures so I can make up a little on vacation for months of really few posts. I just figure there isn't much to be said regarding the making of biology quizzes and and the marking of tests.

The saddest thing is: The pat downs and the security theater doesn't really help. It's a joke. The things that can help us stay safe in the skies have very little to do with the nonsense at the airport.

Frustrating isn't it?
