We sometimes have interesting conversations at work...
To summarize:
Why do people say "assless chaps"? By definition, chaps are assless. If chaps had an ass they would be pants. Now if you said "assless pants", it would make some sense, you would conjure up an image that probably would look a lot like chaps. But "assless chaps" is just silly redundancy.

Beginning again

Yesterday, I started running again. Yesterday, I started going to the core class that the County offers at lunchtime again. Incidentally, starting both those things again on the same day makes for a sore today. I was pleased to be able to run about 2 km after not running consistently for 5 months and not exercising at all for the last two months. I also started praying during the day again. Little prayers about all sorts of things. I'm not sure why I stopped but I'm happy to be going again. I'm feeling pretty good, I feel like I've turned over a new leaf.

Rant perhaps inappropriately or Why IV

I'm working on doing the charitable receipts for my now defunct church. I am so annoyed with people. One is not supposed to be bothered by this when being the treasurer. Mostly, I'm not but every now and then I get annoyed. "Why don't we have enough money in the church?" "Why aren't we doing anything?" "Why...?" The people ask. Perhaps, just perhaps it's because YOU aren't contributing. 13 regular tithers can only do so much. And I was generous in counting the regular. They might say that they don't have enough money, to which I would say one of the least financially able gave regularly. It wasn't a huge amount but it's better than those that gave nothing. Well, that's enough of that. Back to my receipts.
