What a Relief

Today was a day for the gods! (LOL inside joke)

God was truly on my side today (well, he always is); 'twas pretty much a fabulous day. And by that I mean nothing bad happened, and things that could have been bad actually turned out great. I missed lunch (again) to work on the Ren Lit project, on which Sistah Girl and I got great feedback from. Considering I'd spend most of the night and most of this morning working on it, I was super-glad that we were able to rock out with our cocks out--so to speak--on this project. Be that as it may, though, I can't keep missing meals, it makes my tummy poke out weirdly, like I have coke bloat, a la Amy Winehouse. Not a good look.

My next Shakespeare paper is on Venus and Adonis, the tale of the goddess of love's attempt to attract the attention of her desired: an adolescent boy. He has no interest whatsoever in her. Should be good. I listened to Usher's "Confessions" this afternoon while I researched it. I forgot how much I liked that CD. "That's What it's Made For," anyone?

I even worked out today. My body screamed in protest at first, reminding me that it's not meant to gorge on cookies and sleep in. I was sprawled practically spread-eagle on the floor for a minute there...I know I've said this before but I really like my legs. My cheerleading nickname was "Praying Mantis" 'cause I had the longest legs on the team, lol. Oww. Cue body screaming in protest again. Damn I need a massage or sumthin' or tomorrow I'll be bedridden. And not in a good way.

Sidenote: Top Chef, if your paper's not done by Tuesday, I'll make good on my threat to beat you senseless with that loaf of bread. Be forewarned! :)

If all goes well I should be in bed early tonight. And by speaking it, I've just sentenced myself to staying up until 2am. If I do, I'll be productive, I've still got to watch "One Tree Hill," "Gossip Girl" and "The Game." And a new episode of "The Hills" comes on tonight. Staying on top of the gems of television is a lot to do on a regular basis. But for the sake of sophistication, I will press on.

Well done for working out. Keep doing it so that your body gets used to it and starts to recover quickly.

I'm actually an off and on gym rat. I need to stop being so sporadic, though; I could barely get out of bed this morning, and my abs hurt when I laugh!

LMAO...I'm listening to that song right now, if you must know..that's why I need to work out, to work off that excess energy ;)

Next time I go to the gym, it will be my pleasure to drag you with me

And it's about time you finished that horrendous paper!!
