  • Alright, time to ditch the dairy again. That gunk I had last week didn't vanish, it just turned into a sinus infection. I guess i'm buying a neti pot on the way home.

    • Neti pots rock. And I like your workout idea... sounds fun! Though I'm in no shape right now, I'd break a hip.

        • Apparently, it's a regional thing. It's a really hot and spicy sausage, usually about bratwurst sized.

          • Lunch: spanish omelet, a Blizzard (dammit, that whole no coat thing doesn't work when it's in the 70s.)

                Like I said, inspired by Mark's WOW. Well, memories of being a kid, too. we used to do that on the swingset, tree, and chainlink fence at the house growing up. We liked being able to sit down too much to get on the roof.

                • In the off season we used to climb the racks that where used to dry cod. They are very tall and very slippery from the fat of the fish. It's a wonder we never fell down and broke arms and legs or worse.

                  They look like this:





                  And there used to be a lot of them before, but not so much now.

                    • Thanks I remember them with fondness - we even made "tree" huts in them. as you may notice there aren't many tall trees around where I grew up, and those that were tall enough to be built tree huts in were in other peoples gardens. So we made do with the racks bot for climbing and tree huts.

                      Maybe why I am fascinated with oaks and other large trees.

                      • I am, and I grew up with them. Then again, out here, aside from trees people have planted, it's all scrub brush. Granted, that scrub brush is actually the largest oak forest on earth, but none of it's over 6' tall, most of it tops out around shin to waist height (hence, the name for it, shinry.)

                            • The neti pot seemed to have worked some sort of magic. I still have some gunk in mythroat and a headache (yes, I've been bitchy because of a heacahe that won't go away and TOM, lemme alone), but Aleve is working on one and removing the dairy will take care of the other.
                              Someone brought asado to work. I love asado, but the thought of ANY food is unappetizing this early in the morning.
                              ETA: I have come to the firm conclusion that this week can go fuck itself and take it's demonspawn days with it to the masturbation orgy.

                              • I know what I'm doing at lunch: body weight exercises. I found a random number generator online that'll mimic a pair of dice. the top number is the exercise I do, the bottom is how many I do.
                                1) pistol squats ( 1 ea leg)
                                2) pushups
                                3) bicycle crunches (1 each side)
                                4) plank (15s x # on second die)
                                5) burpees
                                6) mountain climber
                                You may have noticed there were no pull- ups on that list. That's because I'm at work and have no desire to break something using it as a pull up bar.
