I really shouldn't complain, but...

apparently spinning makes my knee hurt. go figure. I'm actually less sore than I thought I would be.... I'm just proud of myself for making it through all 45 minutes. although amanda is the real hero, cuz she actually did the standing up part (erm... jogging) for as long as she was supposed to, all five times. I don't think I ever made it for more than a minute and a half at a time. but it was a great workout :-) YAY FOR ME!

there's a guy whose office is down the way who sneezes JUST like my dad. kinda freaks me out. it's not even so much of a sneeze as a combination cough-yell-whinny. gosh, I haven't typed that word in years. but anyway, yeah, it's weird.

I think a bath in alcohol (the RUBBING kind, duh!) is in order for this evening. work out some of this knee soreness.

I'm thinking about having some kind of wannabe superbowl party this weekend. funny how nobody who reads this is in my area code (or very few, anyway) but I think it would be fun. the girls who don't care about football (um, that would be all of us) can hang out in the kitchen after the first 5 minutes and talk and eat food. while the boysnesses can watch the game, undisturbed by us chicas and our incessant questions and talking.

we'll see.

:( & :)


on a happy note: NEW CAR!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!! I'll post a picture later. I think I'm going to name this car. any suggestions? I've never really named a car before.... at least, I don't think *the gay-mobile* counts. I think my last car should've been named *the crapmobile*. or *paul miller sucks*. either one would have been appropriate. but everything is done and taken care of, no more worries for me!! (at least on that end of things....)

amanda & I went to a *spinning* orientation class at the gym yesterday. I now have what I believed the lady (aka crazy work-out biotch) called *saddle-soreness*. all I know is that things (people, animals, what have you) with pelvic bones should not attempt what we attempted without a cushioned seat.

and yet I'm going back tomorrow to do it all over again. glutton for punishment, you say? hopefully someday it will all be worth it. in the mean time I'll just be popping ibuprofen, thank you very much.

that's about it. had our joint service w/ the korean congregation at church yesterday (read: lots of interpreting I didn't understand, good food, and kimchi. notice I do not classify kimchi as good food). Yoonie was there... YAY!!! made me think of the good old days.

I tend to forget to title my posts.

So the car is officially dead, the back officially will not let me fix it, farm bureau and central bank are officially tied for #1 on my blacklist. followed quickly by ms. alexis herself. grrrrrrrrrrrr.

anybody wanna go to a midnight hockey game tonight?!?!?!?! :-D it's been awhile. sounds like fun. YAY! who needs milk and bread?! I'll spend my $5 watching guys beat each other up!!!

in other news, check out kraz's xanga. or not. but it's got interesting info on Macky-G himself, and a link to a guy whose head was in a mountain lion's mouth. with teeth marks and everything. cool.

I've learned that it can be difficult to simultaneously work out (either treadmill or elliptical) and watch grey's anatomy. cuz when big bombshells drop out of people's mouths, it's difficult not to fall off the machine. but apparently not as difficult as when trying to show jessica how to turn on the little fan-thingey. but hey, I made the older guy on the other side of me laugh, so what's a sore knee? MORAL OF THE STORY: don't fall off the treadmill.

later, peoples. good times, good food tonight. YAY!!

let's talk.

wow.... two posts in one week. you should be proud. not to be confused with the TWO different posts on my xanga! wow. I'm becoming such a blogger. although those of you who post every day make me feel like a slacker. mostly I post when nobody else has written anything exciting and I still have time left on my break and I'm bored. (my secret's out......)

I feel like there aren't any good discussions on blogger anymore. hence, I am going to type up a few items that may (or may not) be of interest.... feel free to comment as you wish. and no, this isn't really a plea for people to leave comments on my blog to make me feel better about myself... I've finally been able to separate my self-worth from blog comments. this is just to make something interesting to read. because we all need a little mental stimulation every once in awhile. (bad coral - I know where thine thoughts leadest thou) these are a little random, some tvish, some politicsish, some just plain weird. pick one.

discussion topics:

if you were to become a millionaire, what would be the very first thing you would do?

will preston and christina ever talk to each other again?

should we go to a national sales tax rather than federal income tax?

which is better: mountain dew or ale81?

was simon wrong to say that guy with the big eyes looked like a lemur? (aka bush baby)

do you think lindsay lohan should go to jail for documented cases of underage drinking and drug use?

if you could choose a famous person to be president, who would it be and why?

what of lorelai and luke?

should I shave my head?

okay. that's enough for today. bye.

as the elevator music plays softly in my head....

I'm sitting on hold. waiting for ups. because they're slow. yay for me.

interesting weekend, I guess you could say.... Friday night was dinner & a movie at JR & Bethany's. good times, *the illusionist* is a great movie, great talks.... it's amazing how much we could have to talk about. it seems like we've been sitting around talking for 15, maybe 30 minutes, and then I'll look at the clock and realize it's been more like 3 hours. it's amazing what growing up does to you.

I was talking to amanda last night, and I really don't remember much of what happened on saturday. but she didn't remember what she did either, so that makes me feel better. I know I slept in, and I did a few things around the house, but not a heck of a lot. that's really all I remember. oh wait......... now that I think about it, dinner and a movie might have been saturday night instead of friday night. yeah, that's it. gosh, my memory is bad. I'm so used to us getting together on Friday that I forgot... oh well.

ANYHEW... on Sunday was church, as always... although I must say that our choir rocked this week. when the 8:30 traditional service actually gives applause for the choral anthem, you know it must have been good. dinner with the fam, including the elusive matt & amy back from their trek to northern ireland. I think it's so cool to say my brother went to the UK to make an actual record. If all goes well, he should have some copies available for distribution sometime in march. YAY!

I'm such a sucker... it really is sad. I am now officially a member of gold's gym (at a discounted rate, mind you... I'm not a complete i-dot). so now I'm going to be working out quite a bit, if only to make myself not feel so guilty for joining. but amanda & ryan are members, so she & I have already started setting up a schedule to work out together. and

these heels weren't made for walkin'

I'm such a bad poster. As in, person who posts, not thing that hangs on the wall.

speaking of, got a real, hand-painted picture on Sunday. cool as ever. will post later.

not much to say.

just a little note to say...

it's nice to get a quick email from the other side of the world, even if the reason for the email wasn't exactly *positive*... it's nice to know that some friendships will last forever, no matter how far away they are or how long time may pass since you have seen said friend. According to the internet, my email traveled 6920.2 miles to get to me this morning... a great way to start a Friday.

Daisuki, Miyachin.
