Still Not Dead Yet!

Take THAT, polar vortex!

Yes, I've dropped off the planets as far as online stuff is concerned, because I've been too busy with real life stuff. Real life stuff, which includes moving to my VERY OWN APARTMENT. It's full of cheap and free furniture, and I don't have a table and chairs or a TV yet, but it's mine!

Between searching for a new place, moving, and settling in (still not totally settled in yet), I haven't been able to do much with Royal. This ended up not being a bad thing, because it's been SO UNBELIEVABLY COLD! Seriously, where did I move, Siberia? People took it in two ways: the Tough It Out crowd

and the rest of us.

The horses weren't happy about it. There's only so much you can do without building a heated barn, but they had plenty of hay and shelter. So, considering there would only a day or two of reasonable temperatures in a row between arctic plunges, I basically have mentally written this whole winter off. I've ridden maybe twice since December, and most of my time with Royal consists of hanging out with him while he eat and trying to think warm thoughts.

But hopefully the light at the end of the tunnel is not a train and warmer days are ahead of us. In the meantime, I have some posts brewing about helmets, and the newest Tropes vs Women in Video Games. But for now, I'm tired and want to watch Doctor Who for a while.

Spring is coming. I can almost taste it.
