Me being sick = imitate a vampire and keep to the dark while alternating between napping and catching up on TV and movies.

While reviews haven’t been so great, I actually kinda liked Two Night Stand. It was cute (or as cute as an R-rated movie can be), and I just really like Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton.

Mainly decided to watch Selfie due to the fact that I read it was a retelling of sorts of My Fair Lady, and I’m a fan of John Cho and Karen Gillan. The basic elements of My Fair Lady are definitely in there, though I didn’t realize how much of the (very) general storyline they’d get through in the first episode. I’ll keep it on my watch list for now, hoping that they’ll tone down Eliza a little bit.

Not a bad season premiere for Once Upon a Time - better than I thought it would be given the preview I saw earlier in the week. The Anna casting was great, still figuring out my opinion on Elsa and Kristoff.

On a better note, my lesson today was great!

Pony was rather lazy, and we both worked hard. Some flatwork, then warmed up over one fence a few times. Worked on doing a 3 stride outside line, cross the diagonal to come around the turn to a 3 stride line on the other longside, and then cross the diagonal to go around to the first line again. He was a good boy, and the jumps went from 2’6” to 3’3”. 

Sounds like we’ll be trying to get him into the OTTB class at the show next weekend! Hopefully we’re doing the Classic and Adult Medal, too (and everything fills)!

He is such a little pig, though! I let someone who rents on the property give him carrots and an apple before he got a bath, he got to clean up the grain his neighbor J dropped in the aisle, and then he still pushed on his stall door to let me know he was waiting for treats.

Postgresql drives me insane.

Working on a lab due tonight for a class, and it’s told me there are syntax errors every time I try to make multi-word column aliases or try to reformat dates and refuses to acknowledge when I capitalize an alias. As we get points for our queries matching the professor’s answer exactly, I was all set to get a 0 on the lab, but now suddenly the things psql refused to run are allowable and the autograder’s giving me points for things it gave me 0s on 5 minutes ago? I certainly don’t mind getting the points, but I’d like the things I made sure to write down in class so I could apply them to actually work every time they’re supposed to instead of whenever it feels like it.

It was a no-stirrup ride(s) kind of day. 

On my pony, I just felt like pulling them off not long after getting on. Pretty relaxed ride, although I’m glad he’s getting new shoes next week since they aren’t looking too good right now and they may be bothering him a bit when he hits some of the rocks that get in the ring footing. And then on big J pony, I was too lazy to shorten the stirrups and let them hang (I’m not sure I would have been able to see them at that point anyway - starting to get dark too early!). He’s pretty comfortable at the trot but the canter was a bit interesting.

Lesson tomorrow and show in a week!

Last time I wore a bathing suit was almost a year ago for a pageant, and before that I have no idea when I actually went swimming.
But sure, I’ll join our team for the philanthropic swim relay event.
