I made mini pies!

From scratch! And then part way through said to my dad: "and THIS is why I've never made pie crust from scratch before!". PS it's hard to do. PPS it's really yummy and organic bison and veggies :)

Lets make mini sweet pies one day, yes? I just realized I don't know your favourite pies! Please tell me.

Ah, Education.

I came across a few quotes from TA's that made me giggle as I was going through old school notes:

"Let's not confuse ourselves with the facts."
"A cow is useful as a cow, I mean, you could ride it."
"I found out that amaryllis when they get scared, don't curl up, but jump high into the air." (he meant armadillos, but I loved the idea of the luscious flower of the amaryllis leaping at loud noises, or curling its stem up and nesting in its pot.)

I appreciate this quote:

"To argue with a fool is to prove there are two." ~Doris M. Smith

and I find this fact interesting:

If trying to sneak up on animals, approach from the right side, because then the animal is more likely to catch a glimpse of you out of its right eye which is connected to your detail-orientated left hemisphere of the brain, and wont activate the right-hemisphere as strongly which is better at processing big picture stuff like movement.
