The Co-op, cable, and the occasional crap...

Ahhh!!! Everyone goes to lunch and takes coffee break in this town at precisely the same time. For me, it's impossible to get anything done; I know most people are able to run out for 10 or 15 minutes to get their errands done, and the teachers at the school don't have as much class-time as I do, but I'm here at the college from 8:30 - 5:00 p.m...no exceptions! Not only that, but the Co-op (and probably the Northern) are out of cash. I have no cash. My internet and credit cards are no longer useful to me until the next cash order comes in. That means no TV, no cable, and limited food. So you see, if you're in a ranting mood, there are things you can focus on.

...actually, I don't think it would have bothered me so much this lunch hour - despite the fruitless trip - if the GD qallunaaq I was dealing with was a bit more polite. OK, so you're having a crappy day...you don't have to take it out on the rest of us!

Deep breath Tara...

Walking back from the Co-op I was totally pissed (due to aforementioned circumstances), then I raised my head. You can't stay upset when looking at the type of scenery that surrounds Pang. At this time of day the sun is still out, and today it's shining brightly. Amazing. Taking pictures gets somewhat frustrating after awhile because the camera isn't really doing the job you want it to and now, even though it's only -6C, the lens gets completely fogged up...blurry pics. 'Please remember. Please remember,' is my mantra.

Well, time to go check out that seal! More later...
