So remember when I was bitching like hell about horse show classes for people who don't canter? Right. If you don't remember, it was 10-23-2013. But anyway. Collapse )

We got to the Grand Canyon yesterday by riding the train up from Williams. I wrote a whole lot of other crap about the day but then the hotel wireless fucked up and lost the entire thing and now I'm pissed.

We visited Antelope Canyon (it's a heavily-photographed slot canyon in northern Arizona) yesterday. It was thirty-five dollars a person for adults and worth it at probably twice the price. Collapse )

En route to grand canyon, stuck in airport in Denver due to plane having engine leak. We've been here a couple of hours, with a free lunch voucher ($7.00, a decent chicken sandwich is 9.50 and a bottled water is $2.25) and electric for the laptop. Free wireless is pretty shitty (signal strength is craptacular and they block torrenting so I can't even finish downloading season 1 of Supernatural, which I am mentally characterizing as "slashy incest fic generation material" even though it probably wasn't designed to do that. I am bored and we are behind schedule. On the plus side, the airline is promising us a replacement plane here pretty directly.

Got some quality time in on the lathe this weekend, which I had really been missing. Also, last weekend the weather was warm enough to support playing lathe (the lathe outbuilding is unheated) so that helped a lot. This weekend Saturday was ok but Sunday was miserably cold. I played lathe anyway because all the pieces are handy (splitter, chainsaw, bandsaw) for generating blanks that are a reasonable size.

I was not impressed with the most recent (s2e6) episode of Arrow, which is my most current fascination. The reason for my lack of impressed is mostly what they're doing with Felicity. (Oliver is Our Hero, Felicity is his Girl Friday, Our Lady of IT.) It's not a problem that they're dangling unrequited Olicity in front of us. Everybody likes a good yearn, after all, and that's definitely the kind of fun that House spun out over six freaking seasons. No harm, no foul there. My problem is in the way they're doing it.
