Babbling, it's what I do.

1. I got my car back finally! And it is legal to drive even! And I've been driving it! (can you tell I am excited about it?) I still have a lot of work to do to pay back all the people who have helped me out in getting my car back but at least feel like I've accomplished something now that I have physical evidence of all the work and time and effort and tears...

2. Mr. S and I only made it to the gym twice last week which isn't quite our goal. We discussed it and decided that we are going to plan on going Mon, Weds, Fri and Sunday of this coming week. Provided band practice doesn't conflict. After all they have a big show coming up on the 28th of this month and that takes priority. Luckily I can go while  he is practicing if they decide to do it after class and if they practice before class then all the better for both of us.

3. A friend of mine bought me a ticket to see Portishead on the 27th of this month. I am incredibly excited about this show. I have loved Portishead ever since I heard this song the first time

I was watching Tank Girl with Lori Petty and a dark haired Naomi Watts when this song came on and I was immediately transfixed. I went to Independent Records and got the soundtrack and then I ended up going on a Portishead binge. I bought everything I could including singles and live discs. The Live at Roseland disc is still one of my favorites. So yeah, you could say I am looking forward to this.

4. Did I mention I can drive my car now?

5. Every month I go to a once monthly club night called Deathwish. Some friends of mine and I were joking about having people dress up as me instead of the vampires and werewolves theme. There ended up being 2 people actually dressed like me and one dressed like the "good" version of me (because we all know I'm the evil one *laugh*) here are a couple of photos from that night. It was a good time and it was definitely entertaining to see one of my friends dressed like me when it is so polar opposite of how they normally look...

6. Other than going to Deathwish I haven't really left the house at all this weekend and it's been glorious. I've slept a lot, done laundry, cleaned up a bit, worked on my cross stitch, watched way too many John Carpenter movies and almost made it through the first season of Dollhouse (jury is still out on that show but damn there are a lot of pretty people on that show) I needed a nice, quiet relaxing weekend with very little human interaction. Seriously, it was exactly what I needed especially with the craziness coming up on Halloween weekend.

7. Speaking of Halloween weekend, it is going to be insane and fun and exhausting. Thursday is Portishead, Friday is Mr. S's show at the Rockaway Tavern, Saturday is cocktails and clubbing with friends. Sunday will be for recuperation so I don't feel like death when I go to work on Monday morning. It's going to be fun and I can't wait. Now what to wear?


That is all. For now.

my flavor - according to a Mad Scientist

lipstick, pearls, and insanity. That's your flavor.

I like that. I think I'll add it to my business cards.

To Life Eternal

So Mr. S and I joined a gym this week. It was all his idea because god knows I abhor exercise. Like with a flaming, firey passion.

And yet, he has this damned notion in his head about me being healthy and living a long time. *grumble* I suspect it's just because I am a good cook and I keep a tidy house. And god knows what would happen if he was left to his own devices *laugh* Also I have written several times about how I would like to lose more weight and I know for a fact that exercise and eating healthier will make this happen. So yeah, I’m committed now. Much as I am loathe to do it.

So last night we went for our complimentary visit with one of their personal trainers. He showed us some exercises that had our hearts pounding and our legs feeling like jelly in a surprisingly short period of time. Unfortunately Mr. S wasn’t hydrated or fed enough to be able to do the entire session as all of a sudden he turned green and had to stop. He was fine once he ate some more food and drank a lot of water so we are going back tomorrow evening to complete our session with the trainer who very kindly offered another session since we couldn’t complete the first one. Can’t say I’m looking forward to it though, I liked the trainer he seems like a nice enough guy but owwie.  

We are planning on going 3 to 4 nights a week, usually after I pick him up from class so we will already be out of the house and there will be less temptation to skip it. It’s going to be a struggle for both of us to go on a regular basis but thankfully we will be going together and help keep each other motivated.

Hey if I have to live a long damned life, then so does he. Dammit.

Don't say I told you so

Because I already know.

You keep telling me to let it go

To relax

That things will work out

And I keep fighting it

Keep worrying

And yet

I take a couple deep breaths and let go of the anxiety for a minute

and BAM

I get not 1, but 3 different sources to help me finish my car and get everything taken care of

quit being right. It's annoying *laugh*
