Working life

My access to a few things disappeared when I relocated to the headquarters building. Oh well, I only need, like, all of those things to do my job.


Some stuff got sorted out, which is why I'm able to type this diary.

I didn't go to the cafeteria, since I didn't get to lunch until noon.

Okay, shoot: I just realized that some stuff I really need to get done by Wednesday is only in places I don't have access to.

I've been slowing down the eating until I'm throwing around more respectable weights, as I think I'm adding a lot of fat with the muscle and I don't want to have to get new, bigger trousers. If you want to know what I'm doing, here it is: I'm adding 60# per month to my squats until I'm back up to previous strength levels, then I'm going to continue adding 60# per month to my squats until I can't anymore, at which point I will re-evaluate and move to more sophisticated programming. Somewhere in there I'll start eating like a monster again, probably when I'm squatting over 300# again, which would be rather soon if it weren't for the hiatus around Christmas. Obviously, this is not a plan that works indefinitely. Two months, probably, three months, hopefully, one year, that would be awesome and impossible.

I had a dream about being a stagehand and there was a murder mystery going on which was being written by some non-fiction author. It was some odd stuff.

I have such a great view now. However, there are some cons: archaic phones, pop costs $1.25-$1.40 instead of $1.00, slightly further from the train, fewer food options, they don't have my access to stuff fixed at this location, too many people milling around my desk...

I enjoyed dinner last night! We should host one sometime soon. We'd make pot roast or something.

And, you know what, shuck that jive, I'm going to keep eating until I'm 70's big (sic). Even if I have to get new pants. I will probably have to wait until after Christmas to really do it, though.

I'm really enjoying Emma. It's hard to read on the train sometimes, though.

TE posted in one of his diaries quotes from cross-fit guys and that "Starting Strength" guy (name eludes me, I'm too busy to google it, diary from last week, link from mefi..)

I found their attitudes interesting, mainly because I'm a pussy in their mind because I don't do a GOMAD, and don't do the lifts they do etc.. Same attitude among other sports -- if you bike, but don't bike centuries, you're a poseur faggot. Marathons ? Those are for purse boys, go do a 100k endurance run. etc. Geeze folks.

Can't do an activity/craft/hobby that you enjoy, because you enjoy it, or gain a nice benefit from it. No, gotta go all out or else go back crying to mommy. Big turn off.

...it's Rippetoe. I'm a bit of a fan. The GOMAD recommendation is for novices who need to gain weight. And, yes, he does say if you don't squat, you're a pussy. And crossfitters are cultists.
