Funny stuff

We got beat up just for holding hands.

After yesterday's sets of front squats, I conceded that I was putting weight on faster than my upper back could adapt. My legs still don't feel like they're really getting hit, but I just can't hold onto the bar for the sets. So I'm backing down a little bit.

On the plus side, one of R's friends was like, "I wouldn't normally ask this, but do you work out?" And I was all like, "Yeah, I lift weights a little." Well, it's nice that people notice. I was wearing my tight $UNIVERSITY Dancers shirt.

So I have a major crick in my neck. It's a recurring one and got irritated last night. I'm blaming the front squats.

I'm going to take this opportunity to mention that I'm rather fond of R.

What the hell. Excel just randomly crashed. I was at least pretending to get work done here!

So I was poking around a message board looking at, well, basically, the stories of people who were getting divorced or were unhappy in their marriages. Man, some of that stuff is just messed up.

Well, that was easy. $FORMER_UBERBOSS (who just got promoted, hence former) just called asking for some figures and he was like, "Can I get end-of-month figures for 2008 if it's not horribly difficult?" And that would be impossible, actually, so I asked, "Does beginning-of-month work?" And he said sure, so I was able to provide that immediately, since we track beginning-of-month stuff. True story.

I made one of those little paper ring-sizing things today. It's ambiguous. A web site offered to send me, for free, a plastic ring sizer. Woo hoo. I suppose I could go into any jewelry store and they're size my finger for free, but I have schizoid tendencies. It's also hard to explain that we are doing the more European right hand wedding ring rather than the left (preliminary estimates show there is a one size difference between my hands) and I feel awkward using the services the industry provides as a courtesy when I'm not actually buying something from them. That's right. We're buying wedding rings off teh Internets. We think. Hmm. Will I have to do something besides gold? I have a nickel allergy.
