I have David Gray’s “Dead in the Water” stuck in my head today. Occasionally, “Be Mine” will sneak its way in and stay there for awhile, but generally it’s DITW all the way.
I bought myself A New Day at Midnight as a reward for having worked out all week. Well, actually I bought it yesterday, before my Thursday workout, but now I’m using it as a guilt-trip motivator if nothing else. I’ve now worked out 4 evenings in a row, and have spent a total of 3 hours and 40 minutes, or almost ten miles, working it on the new treadmill. I’m really excited about this. Even though it’s too soon to see results, I already feel stronger for having gotten off my ass and moved my body. Woo-hoo!
Anyway, the point was that I rewarded myself with this CD, which I’ve been wanting for some time, and I’m pleased to note that it’s as lovely and haunting as I hoped it would be, and perfect for dreary weather like we’ve been having this week.
And holy motherfucking shit. I just bashed my knee into the corner of the desk drawer I left open, and OW, it totally hurts. Now Sam and I will be able to compare bruises. Speaking of Sam, tomorrow is her 16th birthday, so if you get a chance, pop over and wish her a happy one. It’s the least you can do, really.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this yet or not, but tomorrow if the weather is as nice as predicted, I’m heading over to Suz’s lake house for a big Memorial Day barbecue. She thinks I’m not going to come so she’s trying to coax me in with tales of excitement and other guests. Here are the “draws” she keeps promising:
2. “lots of boys”
3. 11:00 News Anchor Karen
I don’t know why, but I find these draws funny, and I’m not sure why she’s thinking that I’ll only come if the three above lures are present. But like I said, if the weather’s good, I’ll head over for awhile. I’ll tell you all about it next week.
So, y’know, in case I don’t write again for a couple of days, I hope all of you have a fantabulous and safe holiday weekend. Drink a Corona for me!
