Zecora, the zebra shamaness has lived in the Everfree Forest for some time, but has never gone beyond except for the sake of finding roots and herbs for her potions that her woods cannot supply. But upon making friends with young Apple Bloom and later Twilight and her companions, she has taken it upon herself to travel beyond for a time. Stopping at Sweet Apple Acres for a minute to speak with Applejack, she catches the eye of Macintosh. The stallion falls for Zecora at first sight and then does something very poorly thought out to prove himself to her...

It's going to be in the mid-thirties all week. For the next two days, it's going to be thirty-five. For the metrically challenged, that's about ninety-seven fahrenheit.
These are days in which one is proud that someone stepped up to the plate and invented air-conditioning.
My dog is not going to be a happy camper, and will likely be as pleased as I am of the existence of the A/C.
Maybe I'll get myself some ice cream. Hot days are always better with ice cream. It's either that or seeing if I can get heat exhaustion again. Maybe I'll be lucky and the heat will birth a thunderstorm. I love a good thunderstorm; the more violent, the better. It's like rain with fireworks. Even my dog loves them. She yells at the thunder, thinking she's protecting me.
So then. A week of doing as little as possible and giving thanks to cold air and ice cream.
Summertime is here.

The local school board has gone on strike. All of the teachers walked off the job. The reason for the strike essentially boils down to 'better support for the kids.'
So, in essence they want to improve things for the students by refusing to teach them anything.

It's Daisy, sucking up.
She pokes her head in periodically, in the hope that A) She'll get a walk, B) She'll get a snack or C) She 'll get both.
And she can be quite insistent, hanging outside my door and giving pitieous whines under her breath, especially when she wants a walk. Well, I can't take her out, as it's raining cats and dogs (*COUGH*), so I decide to keep her occupied in another way by giving her a peice of what I'm snacking on.
A wine gum, if you didn't know, is essentially a dense ju-jube. She scarfs it up without a single thought, as dogs are wont to do, and the fun begins.
As anyone who owns a dog can tell you, giving a dog peanut butter is pretty funny.
Giving one a wine gum is hilarious.
She bites right into it, immediately gumming her mouth shut. So she tries on her side teeth. No good; gummed up again.She shakes her head to loosen it to try again. At this point she's basically waging war on it with her face.
She figures out what's going on and to be careful, so now she looks like an old lady trying to eat a sandwich as her dentures are falling out. She rolls the gum up and down left and right slowly but surely wearing it down for proper consumption. This takes over a minute as I'm quietly losing my shit.
Finally, after a protracted battle with her gummy nemesis, she swallows it and licks her face clean.
Then she looks to me for another one.

Self-help means exactly that: dealing with a problem or issue on your own.
So why would you need a book on the subject?
