Humpday Headaches ...

I have a lingering, but not bad, headache today. I got new glasses yesterday and that may be the cause.  I also may have to take them back to be adjusted or even remade, because my left eye isn't focusing right in them.  But, I'll give it another day or so.   Anyone else have a really hard time adjusting to new glasses? I go through this every time. Ugh.

So, fluff for relief ...

Do you know how to ride a horse? When was the last time you did so?

Do you know how to ski? When was the last time you did so?

Did you ever have some weird or odd one-time job? Or do anything odd to earn money for a summer as a kid?

Do you know how to ride a horse? When was the last time you did so? I have only ridden a few times, but I liked it and found it fairly natural. I was thinking of taking some lessons, but it has been decades since I last sat on a horse.

Do you know how to ski? When was the last time you did so? Yes, but I never liked downhill, only cross-country. I haven't skied since I was a kid.

Did you ever have some weird or odd one-time job? Or do anything odd to earn money for a summer as a kid? Well, the artist model thing probably qualifies.Other than that, nothing too strange.

Do you know how to ride a horse? When was the last time you did so? -- Yes. I used to ride with my cousins quite a bit. Their horse was named Lady.  But I haven't ridden at all in probably 20 years. 

Do you know how to ski? When was the last time you did so? -- Kinda. I've only skiied once - on a church youth trip the spring break of my junior year. It was fun, but not so fun that I'd choose it as a vacation now.

Did you ever have some weird or odd one-time job? Or do anything odd to earn money for a summer as a kid? -- My cousins, my sister and I had a fireworks stand one summer.  Was about a 10-day gig (4-5 hours a day each) and we made $400-500 each.  My parents (since they had concessions at the theatre) got the contract one year to do concessions at the city pool. So I worked there onn/off  for a summer.

It depends on what you mean, I can ride a horse but I'm not as experienced or talented as DD - she jumps and she participates in competitions.  No, Not really, The last time I went skiing I was in my early 20s and it was a date.  Not really odd but when I was a teenager I babysat a lot for my cousins' kids and they hired me for trips and to act as their nanny, Loved the adventures and they paid me to go too, Lol.

Sorry to hear about your headache, I hope you get better soon!

Do you know how to ride a horse? When was the last time you did so?

Yes, but it's been decades.  Wink

Do you know how to ski? When was the last time you did so?

Yes, both snow and water.  Snow, about 10 years ago and Water about 20...aka, decades ago.  

Did you ever have some weird or odd one-time job? Or do anything odd to earn money for a summer as a kid?

Not really, I did the normal restaurant, nanny and retail thing during my teens and early twenties until I landed an office job in my middle twenties.

I've done it, so I guess you can say I know how.LOL  It was a LOOOOOONGGG time ago, though.  I was about 12.

Do you know how to ski? When was the last time you did so?

OMG, no.  I don't voluntarily do anything that involves snow.

Many of my jobs have been weird, but nothing really noteworthy.  I wasn't allowed to work as a kid, so I had to just be broke all the time.  It was good training for adulthood.  ;)

Do you know how to ride a horse?

I have done it once, so not really.

When was the last time you did so?

I was probably about 13 or 14 at a Dude Ranch upstate with the girl scouts.

Do you know how to ski?

Nope and have no desire to learn.

When was the last time you did so?

Never

My dh and I delivered the Saturday circular about 17 years ago. It wasn't a ton of money but it was something extra.

1. Does the pony ride at the county fair count?

2. No.

3. Have I ever had a weird or odd job? I suppose that depends on your definition of weird or odd. 

I collected donations for the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe for the Red Cross.

I once wrote 10 unique, 100-word articles on adult incontinence for $150.

I was tasked by a client to find "the most disgusting thing on the internet." He gave me a $500 Visa gift card for my service.

I was a live telephone operator for a Medicare-eligible penis pump, Snuggies, P90X, and Girls Gone Wild.

Back in 99/00, I prided myself on finding the most valuable items at yard sales and resold them on ebay. I once sold a used shower curtain for $50, a pair of infant shoes for $90, and an antique piece of glassware that I'd picked up out of the dollar bin at a thrift store for $125.

I've seeded new forum upstarts for cash.

1. I can ride.  I haven't been riding since he boys stopped about ten years ago. 2. I can't ski.  I tried once but never really got the hang of it, and it was cold and wet.  It was not fun.  3. Probably the most unusual job I had was being the overnight intake counselor at a battered women's shelter in return for a room.

1.  Not really, other than on a group ride at a slow walk.  I was stationed in Texas for my MOS schooling, so 1980.

2. Nope and never.  Absolutely zero interest.

3. Besides being a Czech linguist?  all my jobs have been mundane :)

I do have some adjustment time when I get new glasses but I would not consider it a hard time.

I do know how to ride a horse but it has been about 40 years since I have rode one.

I have never skied.

Cannot think of any unusual jobs.
