Kinda brain dead today so here be things that I learned/did this week:
-A short week in hours is not necessarily a short week in perception. Dear fluffy lord. I think I just barely kept my brain from spilling out of my ears today.
-Telling someone that you want to see their coming facing instead of their going face, in front of a room full of coworkers, some of whom directly report to you, completely without meaning it in the dirty way, causes a laugh riot and gets you on the “quote list” at work.
-Maybe signing up for a relay at work that’s one week after my planned olympic distance tri isn’t the best idea, but it was a nice boost that they were impressed by my 5k time!
-Being so incredibly mentally and physically exhausted at the end of a day that you cannot fathom a workout is an ok excuse sometimes to take a rest day. Especially when you have 6 days planned in the first place.
-Watching this episode of Glee is really making me miss doing theatre. Gotta put that somewhere on the list. Y’know the “things I have precious little outside work time to do” like train for an olympic tri, half marathon, write a book, martial arts, dance classes, and all those other things. And I love my job too so I can’t even complain. More time for more awesome good stuff plz.
-When toobing down the river, you should bring and re-apply sunscreen more often than once. Although my legs looking like a spotted sunburnt cow is kinda sorta amusing now that it no longer hurts.
-I have not much wit and humor and capacity for rational thought this week, so I leave you with cute.
I remember having to do an avant garde performance of the balcony scene in my theatre’s courtyard. I had to run from the basement to the 3rd floor to yell out the art hallways, “arise fair sun and kill the envious moon”. Being in theatre and NOT one of the leads, I smoked and was out of shape, so it was more like a wheeze – but I did it. I bet I could actually walk up the stairs and sing now without being out of breath!
Anyhoo, have a great weekend – what are your plans? Lots o biking and hopefully swimming here, some wine and birthday celebrations, and hopefully a whole lotta chillin’. Said something really embarassing that you want to share?
