Humpday how I love thee...

Good news -  Radio Go Girl is now on iTunes!  Go download the latest episodes now!  Listen to me!  Listen while you're on your way to work, at the dentist, or working on your taxes!

The other Jen spent most of the day yesterday working on the big hookup for me.  She's setting me up with a guy she met who lives in Bellevue... Contact has been established and I will report back when a date has been set.  Two dates in a year?  a record I tell you...

Today is payday - woo hoo... yesterday I looked at my visa statement and realized I need to economize.  I'm not out of control but I have to reign in the spending on unnecessary items.... When I use the visa I put it down in my checkbook but there were a few things that I seem to have missed... ooops.  No worries.



Time to get moving... hump day hump day hump day!

Whose your mamma?

It's Tuesday everyone and it's time to get cracking! 

Last night I ran at the gym for about an hour (4 miles)... I think my feet are doing alright.  I put some fancy lotion on them last night before I went to bed so they are soft as a babies bottom right now.  Just don't look at the toenails please.

The other Jen Towner is trying to set me up with someone she knows here... what the heck I say... this will be the second time I've been set up with someone by someone else who lives out of state... this time though, I've never "met" the other Jen so it's kind of weird.  But when has my life ever been normal?

Bring it on!

Tomorrow is payday and I'm going to pay bills....  tonight I am getting the hair done... it's getting a bit shaggy...

Have I told you all that I love my new foam roller???

That's it.  I've run out of time....

Not much time today...

I spent a little extra time this morning watching a video on cleaning up my mac so I don't have much time to post.

Yesterday I pretty much did what I thought I would... cycle, deliver snacks and then to the studio...

Thursday is the beginning of my Birthday month!  yee haw... 43 here I come.  I think 43 will be a good year.   I was feeling a bit sorry for myself yesterday (but not too much)... I just need to change my thinking and my outlook.  I've got a lot going for me...  new friends.  New projects, super-stardom!

Did I tell you about my foam roller?  I think I did... if I didn't it's a big hard foam roller to work out your muscles with.  I love it.  I think it has helped my hip.... I am still sore this morning but my hip is not a ouchy as it usually is.  Tonight I think I will run some more instead of cycling.  I have to start taking training seriously...

I think that's it this morning.  Check with you later.

New Layout!

What do you all think of my new layout?  it's all part of Bloggers new templates...  I think it's rather refreshing...  I have posted a link to the latest episode of Radio Go Girl.  It' s called Hear Us Roar.

We are talking about boobies...

Yesterday I didn't end up going to my studio but I'm going today.  First I have to deliver snacks to my friend Jenn Campbell as she installs her show at 4Culture.  Jenn was the former Director of Crawl Space and is one of my friends... you should all go to the opening on Thursday... I am going to go and I'm also going to Catch Sean Johnson at Howard House.  I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of art things... I was ready to go when I got back from Chicago - but things got all out of control work wise... hopefully things will be slowing down soon and I can focus on more art.

I was talking to a contact I have at a local community college yesterday.  They are hiring faculty for their art department.  They want someone with metals / jewelery experience... I don't have that but I asked her if I should apply anyway - she said yes.  So that's one thing I need to do in the next few weeks.

Another thing I didn't do yesterday was go out to the Eagles club.  I was just too tired.  I know, I'm not going to meet people if I don't go out...

I did manage to go to Road Runner Sports and purchase a foam roller to work on the muscles in my legs for running.  The dogs like trying to kiss me while I'm rolling around on the floor...



So, I think that's it... I watched the Big Chill last night... still a good movie... I appreciate it more...

I better get going.  I have to watch CBS Sunday Morning...

Hear Us Roar!

Hear Us Roar!

It was one of those days.

Yesterday was the day that never ended... both legal assistants were out, we had a temp, I had to make millions of copies, we had to get a new water heater... ($1,700 later)...  It was just non-stop.  I did manage to make it to pilates so that was good...  I ended up going to bed at 9:30...

This morning I am very stiff.  I have an appointment with the chiropractor next Friday and I hope I can make it...  My plans today are to go to the studio and then I may go out tonight to the Shoreline Eagles.  My friend Nancy's boyfriend's band is playing... might be interesting.

Is it just me or do the weeks just seem to be flying by?  I think they are... I need to get to the studio and work...  argh...

Okay, I think I'll quit complaining now.

Friday - how I love thee...

It is the end of the week once again.  I did better eating wise yesterday until the end of the day when I overdid it on some crackers... at least I didn't overdo it on cookies - right?

My momma is sick so she is staying home from work... I haven't been sick for over a year so I consider myself lucky.  Just watch, I'll come down with something tomorrow....

Today on the agenda I have work and then pilates and then home...  I'm thinking I would like to watch Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (or something like that)... I watched  the preview last weekend and it was pretty good.  It might interfere with what not to wear...

I ran last night for an hour at the gym.  I don't feel too horrible today.  I do have a bit of a sore toe though... I don't think I'll have too much trouble with the cardio part of running.. it's just getting my legs in gear.  They are strong, but they are not used to the pounding...

Here are some pictures from my outing to the Original Red Robin last week...

This is the kitchen I used to work in  (when I weighed a million pounds)...















This is everyone who went to dinner.  I think I'm slouching (and my hair looks a little wacky)... I'm my own worst critic though...


I haven't quite got this new photo layout system down... It's putting weird things in places... please excuse me....


I think that is all I have for you this morning.

Yesterday

Yesterday I skipped the gym

Yesterday I took a walk down to South Lake Union and realized I owe too much money and will never be able to live down there unless I sell my soul

Yesterday I ate far too many points

Yesterday I found overpriced Pretzel bread at Whole Foods

Yesterday is over... thank goodness.

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Yay Boobies!

I just got off the phone with the other Jen Towner.  On next weeks show we are talking about boobies!  The other week she had Bella Styles (I hope I spelled her name right) was talking about having the proper foundations (that means bras people)... and I think that is so true.  You might recall I had an undergarment Monday a year or so ago... 

we (Jen and I) were talking about boobs last weekend and I happened to mention that I had a breast reduction about 10 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did.  She asked me to come on the show and talk about it... I was happy to oblige.  I think a lot of women think about doing it but just never follow through because of apprehension.   I say - get a consultation - see if insurance will cover it.  You have got nothing to lose - except breast tissue.

NOW THAT I'VE GOT THAT OFF MY CHEST - ha ha ha

Back to normal business... I'm thinking maybe I'll run tonight... 

Here's a tangent... I have begun to notice that some people spell tonight as tonite.  tonite is wrong... please stop if you are one of those people (you know who you are!)...    it looks like termite...  eww.

An update on my tumor under my nose... I feel like I'm in high school again... good thing is that it's in the shadow of my nose so you can't really see it.

I have a few extra minutes this morning so I think I will goof off...

here's some pushpins for you.

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

How I feel.

I've been pretty much wearing the same pair of pants for the past two weeks... okay, maybe it's been three weeks.  They are a pair of black jeans that fit well and they go with pretty much anything.  I need to start wearing other things but it seems like I have no energy.  I mean I have it... but when it comes to selecting an outfit it's hard. 

I'm tired this morning.  Hopefully things will pick up... I have 14 minutes...  

Zoe got a new chew bunny the other day.  She has eaten its face off and eating the stuffing out of it.  Oh to be a puppy.  I remember when I was a puppy...

My goal today is to balance my checkbook.

Okay, I'm just putting this out there.  Does anyone want to take me on vacation with them?  I'd like to go to Europe or Hawaii.

Monday, March 22, 2010

Almost 43.

I will be 43 next month.  How did that happen?  I don't quite get it... oh well... time marches on I guess.

Can I get a yahoo for Health Care reform?  I try to be open minded about the other party but I just don't get them sometimes... I try not to think of how convoluted their thinking can be...  I guess I don't pay close enough attention to what's going on to say too much about it... hmmmm... it's curious.

This week - work, work, work.... oh, I think it's payday today at the gym. 

Can I get a body overhaul?  I think I need one.  My shoulder always hurts when I wake up.  I've been trying not to sleep on it but it doesn't work...  waahhhh... I know, would you like some cheese with that wine?

I'm a bit bummed that I didn't get to spend any time in the studio this weekend.  Next weekend will be better.  Right? Yes, it will. 

I think this is all I can muster this morning.... the blemish under my nose is still growing... ow.

Word out.

Sunday, March 21, 2010

No harm no foul.

My coffee outing was alright.  We didn't have a lot in common but that's alright.  There weren't a lot of awkward pauses but not a lot we could relate to... oh well... I guess I'm not meant to be a Mrs. Model-Actor.

Baby steps.... that's what I have to remember.  Maybe I'll go out with someone else this year... that would make it a record for me! 

woot woot woot... I have heartburn... I think will go take some Mylanta and make myself feel better.

Is anyone else feeling it?

Old that is.

I went to bed before 9 last night.  I'm lucky I made it that long.  I was getting sleepy at 5pm.

So, the agenda today... Skype session with the other Jen Towner.  Cycle... and then I'm meeting some guy for coffee... yeah, pick that jaw up off the floor.  It's good practice I think.

It's supposed to be dreary out today so I will probably go to the studio after that.  I did go yesterday for about a half an hour but I was too tired to do anything.

I need to run again soon.  I ran on Friday (did I mention that?).... and now my hip hurts a bit.  I guess I'll have to make another appointment with my favorite chiropractor this week...

I think that's all I have this morning... I need to go take some drugs for my headache.

Saturday, March 20, 2010

It's a hip thing.

I ran last night and now I'm a bit sore.  But I suppose that's what happens when you are in training.  My hip I think is out of whack again (what else is new).

I don't have much planned today.  I think I'll go to the studio and work on things.  I know I will find something to do there....  I have a few movies to watch (the Hurt Locker and Tropic Thunder)... and then I should probably clean something around the house... (ie my room).  I've got too much stuff.

I've got a full class tomorrow at the gym and I'm going to Skype with Jen.  I didn't skype last week and it wasn't the same.... oh well.  I guess I should get going.

Did I tell you about the zit that's forming under my nose?  It's going to erupt any day now!

Friday, March 19, 2010

It's Friday again...

The weeks seem to be zipping by. 

Yesterday was a very full day.  It started out being really crazy and stressful at work... but even being crazy and stressful at this job is not a big deal... just something to get through.

My dinner last night was good.  It brought back memories... I'll post pictures once I get them off my camera.  I  also ran into an old friend while I was there... it's a small world.  Also, one of my friends picked up the tab for dinner for everyone.  Now that's really nice.  It's great when something like that happens.  It makes you want to do something nice for someone else.

Today hopefully, won't be as intense as yesterday... I'm getting a zit under my nose (that's wonderful)... I can feel it growing...

I bought a new yoga mat yesterday and I'm going to try it out at pilates tonight.

I think that's it.

Today's assignment is to do something nice for someone.

The end of an era.

Tonight I am meeting a few friends at the original Red Robin on Eastlake.  It's closing on Sunday.

We all used to work there back in the old days.... they were good and bad days.  I think I was probably the most conflicted when I worked there... I had transferred from Central Washington University to Shoreline... working nights, not being able to get up in the morning to go to class... eating mud pie for dinner... gaining weight... being totally unhappy... okay, maybe it wasn't the best of times.  But I'm glad I went through them...

I also have a really good memory from eating there... when I was in high school my boyfriend and his dad had moved into a house in Fremont... we all went there after moving all day...  back in the old days they lined the baskets with red foil lined paper... Trevor (the boy in question) fashioned a red foil heart out of the basket liner and gave it to me...  that's kind of sweet...

Speaking of sweet.... I am having coffee with a member of the opposite sex on Sunday.  I think I told you a while back that I had joined match.com but wasn't happy with the matches they showed me... well, someone sent me an email and he seemed to not be a psycho killer so I decided to muster the courage to meet for coffee...  I figure I've got nothing to lose... it will get me in practice.

Next item of business - I bought the book Women and Money by Suze Orman on Sunday... I don't watch her show that often - but I did see her a few times when I was stalking Ann Curry on the Today show.  I finally bought it (it was 25%off at Target) because if I ever want to own property I need to get my act together....  Overall I'm doing pretty well but my first item of action was to get my FICO Score - I got it from both Experian and TransUnion... they are 777 and 799 -

Oops I got sidetracked and now it's time to go... I guess I'll push publish now...

Happy St. P!

Wear your green today!  Don't want to get pinched!  Or do we????  might be fun.

It is hump day!  This week has turned out to be a bit slower than the last few weeks but I still have a lot going on.

My brain hurts this morning... I think my neck might be a bit out of whack...

Okay, back to St. Patrick's Day... what to wear.  I could wear my Single t-shirt... or my .... i have nothing else that is green... oh well...

I think I'm rambling here...  

This is the pie we had at work for Barb's Birthday...








This the piece I ate.  It was really good... mmmm Coconut Cream Pie!

I'm going to need to go on a fast....

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Umm.... is it nap time?

I am still pretty sore from the run on Sunday.  It's just my back for the most part.  and my legs.  and my arms.

I am trying to listen to this week's episode of Radio Go Girl... I've heard I'm brilliant.  I don't know about that.  I'm trying to multi-task  but it's not working...

Did I happen to mention that I lost another toenail?  How fun.


Its' not too bad... just two little stubby things in the center...

I've obtained a few training plans for half marathons so I'm starting now!


Is it time for another vacation?  I'm thinking it might be...  I miss my friends in Chicago right now - I've been checking out photos on Facebook from different events that they have been too and it looks like fun... Texas independence day party... looks like fun.... oh well, I digress... I better get a move on.

Monday, March 15, 2010

OUchy.

I'm a bit stiff today... not too bad though.  I guess I just need to keep doing it (running) so that I don't have to experience this too often... Training started yesterday.

I'm back at home now, and the dogs are hanging with me...

I'm thinking of making more t-shirts in my studio... I like doing them - it's a quick easy way to communicate...

Have I ever told you all about my fondness of name tags?  I think everyone should wear them...

Dang, I only have five minutes before I have to start to get ready... boo.  If I were a bad employee I'd call in sick.... but I'm not sick.... well at least not physically!

Sunday, March 14, 2010

These are some photos I took today after the race and at my studio...

Overall a good day.  I'm not too sore... I'm back home with the dogs... life is pretty good.

This was the shirt I wore...




 I will have to check Craigslist to see if it worked...

I'm sure it will look nice in the professional photos!

I'm ready to run (Once I get out of my Jammies)

I managed to change my clocks and get up at a reasonable time... now I have to take a shower and get ready to run in the St. Patty's day dash. 

I'm hoping that I'll take a few minutes off my time from last year... let's consider this the start of my official training for the half marathon (I really need to start).

Other than running I don't have much to do today... that means more studio time for me! woot woot!

I should get going now.. The alarm on my phone is going off and I need to shower and look cute in case I meet my future husband out there...

I've made a shirt just for the purpose of that.  I don't know if I'll wear it or not.  We'll decide once I get moving... more later!

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Me no want to do anything today.

I got a good night sleep but I'd like to crawl back into bed for a few hours.

The plan today is to go into the studio for a while... I don't have anything in particular to work on... Okay, there are a few things but I don't quite know how to go about them just yet... it all has to do with world domination.

Today I also have to plan my outfit for tomorrows run... 

I wish I could just sit here but I can't... it's weigh in time.  wah wah...

Friday, March 12, 2010

oye oye oye...

Well it's Friday again.  I am sure ready for it. 

Last night I subbed a cycle class and it was a killer.  It was a long endurance climb.  I'd give you the technical terms but it's long and grueling... like the class.

After class was over I had two people tell me that it was a really good class.  My friend Marjorie said it was probably the best class ever.  She takes classes all the time so I take it as a compliment.  There was another guy who said it was excellent...  Good.  I'm glad when people feel it was a benefit to them.

After class I headed over here (house-sitting) and pretty much collapsed... once I hit horizontal that was all she wrote.  Out like a light again.  I am feeling like I'm on the edge of being exhausted... tomorrow I plan on spending a lot of time in the studio so that will be good...

This morning I figured out how to use the espresso machine - I am drinking a semi weak Americano.  It works though...

I don't know what else to tell you this morning...  I think I need more coffee.

Oh, It's mini-quiche and sticky bun day today at work.  hmmmm.

Thursday, March 11, 2010

It fell off.


Last night I was getting into bed and I felt something funny (no, it wasn't the chocolate chips that fell into the sheets as I was pouring them out of the bag)... it was my toenail.

Yep, the icky toenail that had the tragic running accident has finally fallen off.  I officially have a nine toenails.... well, actually I have a little stubby thing that is growing in underneath the old one but it's not a real toenail just yet.  The photo above is of my toenails in their glory days...  How I will miss you. 

So where are we in the status of the week....  Work is a bit slower but still busy.  I Zumba'd last night.  I'm subbing for cycle tonight AND I'm house sitting for Emma and Sammy (the wayward cats).  I am planning on spending the majority of the afternoon on Saturday at the studio... then Sunday morning it's the St. Patty's day dash. 

I am no longer bloated and gassy.  That's the good news.

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

It's way too early.

I am making my first appearance on Radio Go Girl this morning... I won't actually be appearing until Sunday on the podcast but we're recording this morning.  I hsve to rmember what I learned in Chicago last month.

Don't be a dud!

I'll try not to be but sometimes it's hard.

I think I'm still trying to wake up... this jet-setter lifestyle is wearing me down.

The talk of the gym last night was the gentleman who died on Sunday.  That really sucks.  I have to get re-certified in CPR soon... I always wonder what I would do in an emergency like that... I think I would probably freak out... but you never know.  I might come through.  I guess it happened shortly after I left the gym.

Poop.

I should get moving have to warm up my voice for my appearance...

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

Tuesday - how I love thee???

I am trying to come to terms with the crampy feeling in my belly.... oh the joys of womanhood... I wish it would go away... (it will eventually).....

I got an email this morning saying that one of the members of the gym I work at had a heart attack and died at the gym the other day. Poop - that sucks. I need to get in there and get re-certified for CPR.

On a brighter note - Jen Towner has gone live with her website and radio show (did I tell you about this?)??

You should check it out here


I'm listening right now online....

Last night I tried to stay up to watch The Big Bang Theory... I made the mistake of getting horizontal with the dogs.... that was all she wrote - I was out like a light. Maybe tonight I will be able to stay up until 11.... who am I kidding?

Today I've got work and teaching... oh, my clothing came last night so I'm going to wear something new today! woo hoo!

here is your abstract photo of the day....

Monday, March 08, 2010

Tonight...

gassy, crampy, bloated

How's that for a rant.

It time to start again.

I actually feel a little rested and ready for the week ahead.

This weekend was good for catching up on things - sleep being one of them.

I went to the studio yesterday - it was nice to get back there after being gone so long... I didn't get a lot done, but just rambling around in there is what I usually do. Sometime things will just hit me and I'll start working... that's not to say I did nothing...

This week should be a bit quieter at work. I'm happy - I can get my things done and not be overwhelmed... Today we are going to lunch at Dhalia Lounge. It should be good...

At some point this week I need to find my voice recorder for the St. Patty's Day Dash... I need to start working on Jeneratorrunning again...

I leave you this morning with a picture of Robert DeNiro's tummy - I watched Raging Bull while I was in my studio...

Sunday, March 07, 2010

Katie and Jen discuss her visit.

video

Sunday - Oscar day!



Katie is joining me this morning for my post. She keeps asking me if I have anything on my computer that isn't boring... I keep aswering no.

She just keep on talking - she doesn't stop.... I think I quit listening a few hours ago....

We are currently discussing her pink Hello Kitty robe. I may or may not have discussed here that I am a big fan of Hello Kitty... I would have a Hello Kitty Robe if they made them in my size.

Good news this morning is that I am not too sore.... I started taking arnica pills yesterday to help with my overall soreness and stiffness. I think it might be working - that would be nice. I am probably also feeling better because I had my massage and went to the Chiropractor on Friday.

Today on the agenda I am Skyping with Jen, teaching and then I hope to go to the studio for a while. I have to get home in time for the Oscars though.... I've only seen a few of the films nominated - Crazy Heart and Inglorious Basterds.... I remember the good old days when I would watch a million movies every year (okay, not a million - but a bunch) and I would have to watch all the nominated films for best picture... that's when movies cost 6 bucks to go to though... my how times change.

Okay, I better go. The kid is getting antsy and its time for another picture.

Saturday, March 06, 2010

One day down...

It was nice to finally have a day sort of to myself... I managed to squeak in near goal at ww. Then it was off to the gym and then to my waxing and massage appointments.... I was a vegetable afterwards...

My niece Katie is spending the night..

here we are with Zoe



She's biting my nose.

It's 8:18 - I think I may go to bed soon... it's been a long two weeks.

Weekend how I love thee...

I realize I didn't sleep in this morning but that's alright... I don't have to go to work today and I have a massage scheduled... wooo hooo....

I have to weigh in this morning at ww - hopefully the many bites of donuts I had yesterday don't have a great impact on it... I think I may just squeak by... I may have to strip down to my underwear to weigh in...

I have a bit of a headache... hmmm....maybe it will go away.

Katie is spending the night at our house... they (H & G) are dropping her off at noon. I hope we can stay up longer than she can...

Well, this is very uninteresting.... the post that is... Maybe I'll come back later to thrill you all...

for now, I've got nothing.

Friday, March 05, 2010

I've already been up an hour...

I know - it's 5:30 my time.... I needed to watch Survivor online though...

Last night I went to the Kiki Smith lecture at the UW. It was good.... I'm not much of a listener (okay, I can listen - but I don't always "hear" things).... the brain doesn't work that quickly sometimes... but the important stuff sinks in. What I usually glean from these sorts of events is that I really do "think" like an artist... well, at least like Kiki... sort of stream of consciousness - one thing to another etc... I remember back in 2002 when I was studying in Rome I listened to a lecture by Vija Celmins she was very similar in tone.....

Articulating why you are doing something ... not rationalizing why and where it sits in an art historical context... None of that "artspeak" which I find very difficult to get into.... I really don't want to be burdened with figuring out where I fit. I just want to do.

I wish there were more events like this in Seattle - they happen a lot more often in Chicago (one thing I miss)...

Okay, I am getting ready to go to the Chiropractor this morning and then I have to pick up donuts (I wish I didn't like donuts...). I have to weigh in tomorrow and I'm not looking forward to it...

I better go.

Thursday, March 04, 2010

Of course she reads the blog today...

I checked out my stat counter and saw that my mom read my blog today... she apologized this morning for doubling up on the laundry... it wasn't that big a deal but I wanted to go to bed and it's been a long week.

Tomorrow I'm off to an early chiropractic appointment and then work... one more day and it will be over! for a few days...

Sure happy it's Thursday!

Only two days to go and then it's the weekend!

Work has been a bit better this week (it's never really that bad though)... busy, but not as busy as it has been... I don't know if I mentioned this but I have been working double duty in some cases. On of our legal assistants has been out because her mom had a stroke a few weeks ago so she's been in Canada helping out... I have taken up some of the slack and been doing things (filing pleadings and such) which I'm not used to doing. It's good to widen my skills this way.

Tonight I am going to see a lecture by Kiki Smith. She's an artist (you should google her to see her work)... that should be interesting.

Here's some more old art for you all...





Oh, and my plan for world domination continues... I have started a new blog with my fb friend Jen Towner - and here's the name

wait for it


Jenergy!

We've got a few other things in the hopper.... that's part of the reason I've been so busy. When you've got a million great ideas and few that suck it wears you out.

See you all later.

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

A rant for old times sake.

I got home from the gym tonight... today was my fourth day teaching in a row.... I only have so many pieces of workout wear...so I do laundry a lot.

My put a load in and ran it so I could have clean stuff for later on this week (including the pants I've decided to wear at work every day this week...). Mom had stuff in the dryer and I had to wait to transfer it...

well, I go downstairs and SHE'S STARTED ANOTHER LOAD ON TOP OF MINE! How can someone not know that there's already clean laundry in the washer???

I was planning on going to bed soon but no... I have to wait for the re-wash to be over...

(Okay Bill, no giving shirl a hard time about this...)

errrrrr......

Planning for world domination is hard.

My friend Elliott sent this to me...

Will she ever see any art?

Susan commented on my blog asking if she will ever get to see any art. That's a good question. I don't know. I'm sure some will pop up eventually.... I have found that I am the sort of artist who just has things come to me. I can't just sit down and decide "I'm going to do this" and then pound it out. If I could just get a few seconds to actually go to my studio I would. If only I didn't have to work for a living things might be different. If only I didn't come up with excuses? Maybe that's it?

Will she ever get to see any art? I'm sure you will Susan.

Here's some old artwork to tide you over...





Sometimes I think it was easier when I was just strictly an object maker. I like objects but they don't satisfy me the way performance/video/blog/whatever does...

Okay.

That was kind of nice - a blog post in which I don't complain about how busy I am (well, not really).

It's never ending...

This is yet another week that will go on and on and on....

Lunch with Matt was alright but not quite what I had hoped for.

Let me see - what else is going to this week? work, work, work, gym, Kiki Smith lecture, work, work, work, ww, gym, waxing appointment (my armpits are getting hairy), massage, fixing lights, hanging out with my niece, sleeping, skyping, cycling, resting, repeat. Hopefully I can get into the studio this weekend. I didn't get a chance last week... poop! I need more hours in the day!

Okay, I made an appointment with the Chiropractor for Friday... I'm going to get this hip back in gear... maybe have him work on my shoulder too... I need to start training for the half marathon soon... (what was I thinking?)...

Okay, I think that's it....

Planning for world domination is hard...

I don't think it's Pink Eye...



My eye just hurts a little bit. It wasn't crusty this morning... We'll just have to wait and see. This photo I took last night...

I am psyched to watch the Biggest Loser tonight... good thing I got that itunes subscription to Lost...

I know it's only Tuesday - but I'm tired... again.

One of the cute boys at the gym complimented me on my song selection... hooray!

Today I am having lunch with my friend Matt. He is going to be helping me with some videos... I just need to have a pow wow with him. Maybe I'll buy him lunch... do I want to be nice?

Okay, here's one last thing... I signed up for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon.... now I'm going to have to start training... I was discussing running with a friend of mine from the gym and she said my cardio level should be just fine - it's just training my muscles (legs) to do the new routine.... I should go see my favorite married chiropractor and get another tune up.

I think that's it for this morning...

Here's my last words today.

Don't be a dud!

Everyone like donuts...



Especially me...

I think I might have pink eye... or at least something stuck in my eyeball.

I ended up subbing cycle tonight... I'm tired... there is just too much going on.

Tomorrow morning I will update you all on what I had to go through this morning... it was rough.

Oh, and I forgot...

I purchased the coat on the left and the top in the middle...
my chunky knee won't let me wear the jeggings

Jeggings is a new term... jean leggings..

google it.



And I ordered the blazer on the left....
and the purple cardigan...

okay, I have to get ready for work now...

No dog this morning.


This is what I look like after a long weekend... I think I said yesterday it's going to be another long week... yep. It is!

This morning I get to look forward to having a plumber come to the office and fix our hot water... Maybe he'll have plumber's crack... could be interesting.

Can you believe it's actually March 1st? You know what that means... it's one month closer to my BIRTHDAY MONTH (April)...

I don't know much more than that...

Oh, I am going to a lecture by Kiki Smith on Thursday at the UW. Keeping my art muscles flexed is always a good idea... I am going to have to suit up in case I see someone I know and want to impress. (or date)...

Well people - I think that's it for Monday.
