fallHi everybody, just a random update from your friendly Intransigent blogger, to lighten the mood around here.  I have a tale of a happy convergence of circumstances. 

One day, I’m at the horse rescue and another volunteer invites me to come to a different horse-establishment to meet her horse.  Of course I said yes!  So we made a date, and I met up with her and her horse, and as we’re fussing over her horse and giving him treats, she asks me, have you ever thought of starting to ride again.  I (as cheerfully as I can manage) say “nope, I’m too fat.”

We carry on pampering her horse, and the owner of the barn stops by to chat.  “So,” she asks, quite innocently like there was no ulterior motive in getting me to visit, “Have you ever considered starting to ride again?”

I do my little nope too fat, shrug, self-deprecating laugh thing.

The barn owner looks me up and down, and says, “We have a couple lesson horses who could handle youno problem. Email me if you’d like to have a lesson sometime!”

I emailed her as soon as I got home, and lessons started the week after singing lessons ended for the summer!

A few observations upon getting back in the saddle after eighteen years on the ground:

  • Everything is still there mentally, but the balance and fitness to do what I remember, has left the building
  • Riding, especially posting trot, is way more exercise than I remember
  • Horses are still very silly, unpredictable animals
  • Falling off hurts about the same amount as ever

 

 

I need a top up of Mr.Jackson, and poof this gem came across my bow.  How could I say no? :)

A big hat-tip to Moe at Whatever Works for posting the video for me to see and then link to here.

Oh hey, as an extra bonus some ytube comment highlights -

  • YEAH A DIFFERENT DAY. A MUCH BETTER, BRIGHTER DAY WHEN ROMNEY WINS AND WE GET OUT FROM THE DARKNESS OF CONSTANT CRISIS AND CHAOS CREATED BY THE MARXIST JOKER.

    [ed. I suspect that williamjf66 would not know a Marxist if one came and bit him on the ass. ]

    Sorry, my friends, but there’s no time to snore. A muslim marxist just declared war. On religion, incentive, freedom to say. We’re in a collective if obama has his way. He’s against profit, so if you are in business, tough luck. I strongly suggest that you wake the fuck up.

    [ed. Oh Jim, it is so cute how you've internalized the business class propaganda, tell me again how awesome they are once you are laid off and destitute.]

    What happend to family values? Having a 10 year old dropping F-bombs? I have lost all respect for Obama and Samuel Jackson. I am a registered Democrat and this is embarrassing! Obama just lost my support!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great vocabulary Jackson!! You and Madonna are 2 faboulous democrats. You make me want to puke with your socialiist garbage spewing. You are whats wrong with America. Drop the crack now.

      Obama has been working his ass off with a do nothing Congress who everybody seems to forget will not do a fucking thing. Ask Eric Cantor and the rest if the rejects we call Republicans who continue to block anything within reason. You people should ask the 1% who suppose to be the job creator class who why they hate unions and why is there a never ending income inequality issue that for some reason they wont fix? You people ned to put your ignorance (prejudice) aside and Wake The Fuck Up.

      [ed. Funny how one of the few reality based arguments gets marked as "spam".  A testament to the toxicity and inanity that rule in ytube comment sections.]

I was unaware of the meme-status of beast jesus.  :)

 

My friends and I have been hitting the Left 4 Dead pretty hard as of late.  Lo and behold, youtube can further feed the fires.  This clip won’t make much sense to those who have not played L4Dead, but suffice to say, Francis is one of my favourite characters in the game.

Overindulgence.  How Western Civilization will be remembered.  Enjoy it while it lasts.

 

And I thought the Pope had the market on evil empire Star Wars references.  :)
