Introducing Singapore's next great tutor - Jennifer Elaine Tacy Taylor!!!

And a good evening to you from across the globe after another GREAT DAY in the Lion City. It was a rough one at work today, but the Bull and his band of merry rogues continue to soldier on. T-Bone, as it says on the back of our Clearwater Marathon shirts: "We will not tire. We will not falter. We WILL NOT FAIL!" Okay, that was a little overdramatic.
And speaking of marathons, I must offer a big WELL DONE to el Burro Jefe Gigante, Matt Miller, for a STELLAR performance in the South Park Half Marathon. MattPa turned in a 1:37:01, which is exceptional given the hills around there. Make no mistake - I still hate the guy. But I must tip my cap when it's due...NTAC.
In exercise news, the Bull logged 45 minutes on the bike tonight, recording 24 KM at a decent clip. Muffin Puffin, however, took a (much deserved) night off to do something she's been wanting to do for a LONG time - volunteer with kids!
So Muffin Puffin is part of a new volunteer group called "MBrace," which seeks to promote reading within Singapore's youth. Tonight was Jenny's first night, and she had 2 eager 8 year old's to work with. The story of choice, "Mouse, Mole, and the Falling Star" is sure to be the next addition to the NY times best seller list (it's actually the 4th installment in the "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series...okay not so much), and Muffin and I spent lunch (at Subway, I'm sure you noticed - EAT FRESH!) marking up the answer keys for the evening (the kids had 4 worksheets that they had to complete). For the record - if you haven't done word jumbles and crosswords since 4th grade, I can confirm they are NO JOKE. However, between the pair of us, Team Taylor prevailed.
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat tomorrow!
