work and rain

i don't have any news to write. i'm catching up on a whole bunch of work, i can feel everything looming, so i'm trying to be up-to-date or ahead at this point. from here on in i have a major assignment/presentation due, or my students do, nearly every week til a week past the end of semester. which is do-able, but a little menacing. . .

i did a nice picture of a tiger.

and this is a little gesture to all of you frying in australia:



sorry, there are no bears or raccoons or even squaruls, but there's maple leaves (i think - i'm never sure about this. they look like them, don't you reckon?) and rain, which is very vancouverish.

we haven't seen water like that for a very long time!! Even the Darling River isnt running like that!
More sunshine and warmth here today, except in here where i have to have singlet, socks and windcheater on (and probably ear muffs and beanie by the end of the day!)

well, it's been pouring down like that all day. it will tomorrow too, then clear up on tues, according to my weather widget. (it is sunday now)

sorry you're all rugged up! do you have pretty ear muffs and beanie?

Ahhhh, I remember seeing rain once.
It was wet, it was, and I said to Jimbo, you just watch Jimbo, one of these days we won't be seeing rain like this any more. And Jimbo, he turned to me and he said......

Arrggghhhh, alright, I'll stop now. No more.

i can see no gesture, no rain, no nothin - just spots

gtg said...

hee! i like you, bbb!

sorry it is so dry and all your rivers are drying up.

gtg said...

sorry, grotty, i know not how to help you. i could give you my youtube address and you could go look it up on their site. actually, go there and search for greentextagirl. i think it'll come up.

sorry!

rinny said...

this won't do gtg, - like grotty, i too see nothin' but spots .... damn this crappy work computer!


bbb, who's Jimbo? and what did he say?

no sun in Melb, just grey. and wind.

Grot said...

hey, i saw it!

I also saw the person in the window in the building opposite, on the ground floor.

He/she would by now have reported you as a terrorist and the Canadian Mounties are on their way.

We'll probably never hear from you again, but we'll know to send parcels to Guantanemo Bay.

Grot said...

a little bit more work and that last comment would be a great pome

crin said...

grot, you should be a writer!

gtg, i'll visit you in guantanemo, that's one i haven't been to before!

gtg said...

hey grotty,

glad you made it work. i wasn't looking forward to starting that process again. (uploading to youtube then transferring, etc.) isn't it rainy???

heh. there is a newspaper headline now "mounties misconduct cases mount" or something along those lines. i thought of buying it for the tourist value. would you like a teddy dressed like a mountie? or, or, there are hoodies with "SFU MOM!" written on the front. i thought it would be a *perfect* birthday present! whaddayareckon?

they'll never send me to gauntamo bay if they don't crack my secret identity! *twitch twitch*

gtg said...

ta, crin!

Grot said...

of course i need a Mom hoodie - i can wear it walking

but did you see the man in yr video? right at the end

gtg said...

really? really, really? mom? d'reckon bbb would like the equivalent?

yes, i did see the person in the vid. i doubt they saw me though. i'm up on the first floor and i had my arm stuck out the window filming. cos i'm hardcore like that.
