It's but one consequence of not going into teaching or the Roman government.


The title is from an employee comment from one of our surveys. The intro text is my own addition.

I want to sleep.

Tomorrow is a retirement party for the CEO.

Tonight I'm picking up heavy things and then putting them down. If you're really interested in how I work out, I alternate between two workouts, A and B. A: squat, bench press, deadlift. B: squat, press, power clean (I clean what I'm going to press for each set sometimes, too). I throw in chinups and roman chair situps if I have energy or time left at the end. Add weight every workout. Do 3x5, except deadlifts, 1x5, and power cleans, 5x3. And that's what I'll do until it stops working. Then I'll get a little more sophisticated.

I skipped chess. It was snowing. I went to wings night, though. They're both on the campus, about the same distance to walk. The difference is making the same walk twice in the snow. The buddy I was supposed to meet there wasn't there, but other people from that circle were, so it was all good.

I'm wearing a turtleneck today. It's a thick one, not an anemic one. I bought it when I was in high school visiting France. I needed a sweater. It sort of showed off my figure. Chicks dug it. The only downside is that it makes my neck itchy if I have started a beard. It's No Shave November. I've started a beard. But I'm warm.

Today: release of Season 4 of Doctor Who on DVD in the US. I totally have it Netflixed and it is arriving today. I am victory. I'm delaying my plans to study and crap, I'm just going to sit down and watch both disks tonight. Well, maybe not both, that's a lot.

I have to figure out a way to turn this vague idea of using this resource in some useful way into, well, something concrete that uses that resource in a useful way. Unfortunately, that vague statement is about as much guidance as I have, too. Really. Timescale: someday?

We gotta get out of this place!

I watched most of Patton last night before Wings Night. Was good. Should finish. I love Wings Night.

I did some laundry last night. I don't really love laundry. It's all right, all things considered.

I miss the village green. God save the village green.

Maybe I should start up a $CITY chess boxing club. I don't know much about boxing or starting clubs, but I could and would learn about both. That would be a good project once I have a little more time. I'm not really good enough at chess to be competitive there, either. At least not in a town like this.

strikes me as a test to see which of the two competitors is the least concussed. This is mostly from pictures and my imagination however.


Well, by ambrosen (2.00 / 0) #2 Tue Nov 18, 2008 at 01:00:47 PM EST
boxing's about exhaustion as much as concussion.

but concussion seems like it would hurt your chess game more than exhaustion.

No?

Maybe you should join the Village Green Preservation Society.

It's my favorite Kinks album by gzt (2.00 / 0) #6 Wed Nov 19, 2008 at 04:22:58 AM EST
I quote from it often in my diaries. I didn't realize it was so cheap off Amazon, though. Cha ching. I'm a consumer whore.
