Gun laws suck (when you have to study them.)

Wow. I was going to post on Friday to show my triumphant attempt at cake decorating without my instructor. And... well... it didn't go quite as planned...

In fact, I finished the cake at 11pm on Friday night. (*sob*)

But if you want to read why it took so long and see what the cake looked like, feel free to click over here.

Needless to say, it's been rough.

The good thing is it's been a learning experience.

Speaking of learning experiences, I'm about to sit down and crack open some books. On Thursday, I have to go write an exam to prove I'm capable of and responsible enough to own and carry a firearm. (It's required in my country to be licensed.)

The annoying thing is that this will be some seriously dry reading. Oh well.

Why the need for a gun? Mainly to chase vermin away with. (Pigs. Baboons etc.) So yeah, it'll mainly be just another farm tool.

But yeah... I might be a bit quiet on Wednesday, since I'll probably be studying like a fiend. And I'm going to stop writing right now so that I can get started.

Anyone else having to study for something this week?

Good-luck with the studying. I know you will do a great job. How cool to have your own gun.

Good luck with the exam. Here in Los Angeles we'd be using guns to ward off different kinds of vermin. Criminals, gang members, etc.

I know how to shoot a BB gun, but that's my extent of gun knowledge.

Studied last night for the two seminars I taught today. Need to get my act together for Wednesday's IWSG post.

Haha, you're buying a gun to chase away varmint. That's funny for some reason! I thought you were going to say it was for protection because your neighborhood is full of burglars and criminals!

Thankfully, we have rifles and shotguns and we need them with varmints and hunting in season. As to the studying, thank God I don't have to study anything but my Sunday School lesson anymore. But Melody over at My Creatively Random Life is having to study:

Good luck. I'm taking a personal trainer course (although it's more an advanced gym instructor course). It's hard work with a puppy and a new book on the way!

I've personally chosen to read the book "Middlemarch". I've not read any George Eliot and decided it was time to take on a super classic. Good luck with your gun class. My husband is the gun enthusiast (such a Texan). I"m the very non-gun person.
