  • *maddashthroughjournal* DONEDONEDONE with Sigils trilogy!!!

    I guess that means I should get on the treadmill.

    Hmm. Maybe Sigils still needs work.

    And to the dick who is stealing the Netflix from my mailbox, the joke is on you. I just cancelled the service. So enjoy your last disc, jackass.

      • That slide is the greatest thing ever! We need one in every park.

        • As a kid, there was a park near my grandparents' house with one of the oddest pieces of equipment I've seen yet. It was a giraffe with climbing handles going up the neck and an honest to god climbing rope for a tail (probably a large part of the reason the giraffe got removed in the renovation.) I'll hafta try and dig up a photo of it.
          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          • There was an honest-to-Valhalla giant hamster wheel for children in my nursery school playground, made out of splintered wood and painted green. We packed into it and ran as fast as we could inside, inevitably stumbling and being thrown head-over-heels until we either fell out or knocked over the kids still running. As I recall, it was also removed.

            I still miss that thing.

            And then I have to compare it to when I started teaching. This school insisted on SAFETY FIRST!!! The children were not allowed to run on the playground because they might fall down. Right. I hated that ridiculous rule. All through recess, the kindergarten teachers blew whistles and screamed WALK at the students.

            • My youngest sister's preschool was like that. No twisty slides, no running, foam instead of gravel, padded everything, nothing more than 5' tall. No wonder she always begged mom to take us to the REAL park across the street when we picked her up.

              • Maybe it's just a me thing, but I tend to get MORE injured in padded rooms than out of them. Torn ACL, multiple ankle twists and at least one sprain . . . Oh- and busting a collarbone coming off a horse that was traumatized by me falling off! (I still feel bad for that one. Poor Pete.)

                • The always-safety playground debate is interesting. We had a climbing structure at my school, which felt perilously high to me at the top and made me extra careful while I was up there. There was one bad fall from that structure (resulting in a broken arm) in all of the many years I was at that school. The rest of us knew better than to climb to the top and push each other or try to jump. We thought that kid was an idiot (I don't remember what he decided to do up there that resulted in his fall, except that it was moronic). I doubt that structure is still in the playground, which is a shame since hundreds of us scaled it without mishap.

                  • Interestingly, recent research shows that kids who are not allowed to explore less-than-safe environments display more risk-taking behaviour later on, when they have a greater capacity for self-harm.

                    That is, if you don't let your kid play on rocks and tall play structures, when she/he is 16, she/he will take your car out and wrap it around a telephone poll just to see what happens.

                    Dangerous play in childhood is what develops the physical side of common sense. Science provides a LOT more evidence for that, than for restrictions providing any benefit, safety-wise or otherwise.

                      The problem is that people are sue-happy and will sue the school for not better protecting little Johnny from that fall of the swing.

                      If people would stop suing, our kids could probably learn for themselves how not to get hurt.

                      • Translation: idiot kid jumps out of tree and breaks arm; idiot kid doesn't jump out of as tall a tree. Idiot kid not allowed to climb tree; idiot kid doesn't know when to say "this is a bad height" and jumps off a mountain without a parachute.

                        • I think maybe certain lawsuit-happy countries might want to reevaluate that whole thing. Just sayin'.

                          Or else lawyers might want to get more creative and use evidence that too-safe environments for children cause more harm later. It's sad when people use "someone might sue me" as justification for doing the wrong thing. Kinda makes the phrase "justice system" an oxymoron.

                            The throat is responding well to Bourbon baths! (No longer swollen and deep red with pustules sprouting all over like toad lumps.)
                            But still isn't perfect (still sore and light red, irritated)... bourbon baths will continue until further notice.

                            I made some spicy curry chicken and smoked turkey soup last night. Yum...
                            Tonight was supposed to be braised lamb shanks, but they didn't thaw in time to get busy in the oven early today... so we went out for Molcajete! SPICY Mexican beef/chicken stew of awesomeness!

                            I need to learn to make that at home sans questionable oils... but it's a great cool night out dinner. SO spicy!.

                            Tomorrow the lamb gets enough garlic to kill all the germs... I hope.

                            And more bourbon. It really is the perfect throat gargle...

                            • Dammit, MDA, don't remove my spam messages! I had a lovely post just here from EsmereldaX68 or Emery67Q and I was all ready to write the mightiest of love letters BUT IT IS GONE. Don't you ever stop to think about the ego boost I receive from each and every shy troll too intimidated by my gorgeousness to leave an original message? Don't you know the time I while away in deciphering the hidden communiques in the Viagra images?

                              And now I am alone in the night, without my darling Emerald54J or Eggelton^90, without even E34UNM to raise my spirits. I guess I will go out and hug my Death Eater chickens instead. And MDA? The pecking I will receive is entirely your fault.
