Best Day Ever

Dear Everyone,

Today probably is! Holy crap - why didn't I buy a lottery ticket???

While far too lazy to write it all down I do need to remember it all. Wow.

So my experiment in productivity was not a complete failure. I missed the boat for climbing but I did work fairly diligently and managed to roughly complete my paper between 5 and 6, affording me sufficient time to attend the Super Bowl party.

The whole thing fell down because I had spent all day camped out at home (ie Garth's place - lol!) where there was nothing but bread and p.b. By the time I finished the paper my eyes were sore, I was lethargic and just felt like relaxing. So I bailed on the Super Bowl party and watched Man of the Year! (Great movie - that 'computer glitch' was pretty sobering, no? Double bs, double ls...yikes!) Thus far, 2008 has been the Year of the Bail. (Not seen in such epic proportions since university when I would generally leave social events (often without notifying my companions) and go home to watch That Girl on TV with my mom.

I think another reason for bailing was fatbody. Yesterday was rock bottom. The bread and p.b. The Italian that G and I ordered. The inactivity. Well TODAY is the first day of my steadfast journey to the 140s!!!

Battle cry!!! Musical crishendo (spelled as it SHOULD be spelled)!!!


Off to work. Then class.

Double fuck.

Happy Monday. This ray of sunshine is signing off...

Experiment in Productivity

Today I need to complete a paper for my course (due tomorrow). I am up early on a snowy Super Bowl Sunday to do it and obviously dicking around on the computer instead. I challenge myself to hunker down (LOVE that expression!) and instead of letting the task stretch to 10 pm tonight, I should complete it by 1:30 pm, thus affording myself time to 1) climb at 2 pm and 2) attend Harry's Superbowl party where I will NOT eat deep-fried turkey.

I have not read 'The 4-Hour Workweek' but if I did, I bet this is the type of thing I would be encouraged to do. It will require Unfettered Productivity. Ie this blog is a Fetter. Ie you are a Fetter. Or a Fetterette.

Bye for now.

Happy 10a Day!

Yippee! Today I went climbing with Melanie, a good friend from Laurier, and finished my first 10a! This is a big milestone in terms of difficulty level. Mel did a great job her first time both climbing and belaying. She is a natural with the perfect body for climbing (tall and thin!) plus she loves heights.
