It was in the 80s yesterday. Today... 40s.

I agree, screw all this variation in weather.  I wonder if it's messing with Grim's garden

I haven't seen him for a couple days, I can only assume he is out in the garden as we speak giving a moving motivational speech to the hydrangeas.
I feel so darn special here. I haven't been around much due to being crazy busy. Work, home, garden, everything. Spring will do that.
My garden is just dandy, thank you. It only gets harmed if we get a hard frost right after the tender new leaves emerge, which we haven't. And even then, most plants have enough reserve "food" to push out a second batch if need be. No worries!
Nan's birthday is tomorrow. Every year I get screwed(Leave the gutter, please) due to proximity of her birthday to Mothers day. I end up buying a batch of gifts, then deciding which goes with which. Then I have to come up with some special breakfast that Benjamin and I will make for her on Mom's Day. I rocked it last year with this awesome Chocolate Cherry Coffeecake. Not sure how I'll top it. The stress! It burns!

I chaperoned an overnight camping trip with a bunch of my students this week, and was introduced to Ga-Ga (or Gaga Ball).  I think I spent most of yesterday and most of today playing it with the students.  Some of them are pretty cutthroat, and it's great fun!  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ga-ga

My parents got back from a week long vacation, had been back ten minutes and my mother managed to trip over the suitcase she had put down and break her arm.

Luckily it wasn't while they were in the States. They don't need those sort of hospital bills.

Do sprints. Sprints build up your cardiovascular endurance much more effectively than jogging, and you don't have to wear your joints out sprinting. Last year I was running a few miles everyday, but my right knee started feeling painful after all of that running. I had never been a jogger previously and I know why, because it isn't worth it.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Actually it was literally about ten or fifteen minutes after they'd gotten home from it.

Amazing way to end it. I think she's alright, thanks for asking.

The worst part is now she has to eat my dad's cooking.

Interesting.  So short but effective sprints and anything fancy in between?  Short walks, speed walks, lunges?
I hate jogging, so it might be worth doing large bursts than slow endurance tests.

Worked.  Hung out with work fellas. Chilling. Dinky 4 hour shift tomorrow (which, while I need the money...I dunno, I want a break too) :)

Went to gallery hop. Left early so I could get food at a restaurant before they got too crowded.

Food was great. Greek. Anyway. Walked around downtown a bit too 'cause I got there TOO early.

Saw a store in the short north -- a legit store -- selling a large print of... Bugs Bunny spanking Lola. There was visible /lady parts/ so it's like jesus hell why would you have that in a store. And it was RIGHT by the door. There were kids around, bro!

... Also got dehydrated because it was a lot hotter than I thought it'd be. Feeling better now but it was like auwgh shit migraine.

Trying to work on that mspaint pic I was doing. I cannot draw water.

You can do regular walking and/or riding a bicycle if you want to build up your cardio endurance that way, but doing short sprints (say 50 yards or so) and walking back to recover works just fine. Do that 10 times to start out for a week or two, then bump it up to 15 times, and then try increasing the distance. You'll be done in 10 minutes as opposed to an hour of jogging and you will have done more work than jogging.

Besides, sprinting strengthens and builds your muscles. Jogging just ends up making you look like a Kenyan.

I guess the upside to all of my dogs being dead is that I don't have to worry about them dying anymore.

I guess the upside of Adam Yauch being dead is NOTHING.

I have fallen into the trap that all university students dread: no experience >>> can't get a job because of no experience >>> etc. etc.

I've tried applying for so many internships this semester and got rejected by all of them. Not really looking forward to job hunting in the fall (since I graduate in December).

I had a CD in college that I'd like to listen to now but I can't find it.  It should have been with the others but I can't find it anywhere.  I suppose I haven't seen it for awhile.  Maybe I gave it to a friend?  All of these things - I don't know.

Yeah internships suck.  I don't know how the hell anyone finds one of those.  We found a bunch at various job shows but I remember asking around in my class and no one even got an initial call of interest or know of anyone who did. 

One of my highschool friends did get a call from an oil company in Texas in need of people.  I can't remember exactly how much they were paying, but it was somewhere around 22-25 dollars per hour (Yes, for an internship).  Crazy.

I think some of my depression in life is now affecting my gym performance. Yesterday, I tried 315 on the bench, even though I didn't really feel it. Sure enough, I got it off the bar, down to about 4 inches above my chest, and almsot spazzed as my right arm couldn't hold the weight. Luckily I got it off to the bottom rack of the bench, circumventing a decapitation. I was not pleased at all, and the rest of the workout suffered further... everything was lower numbers, less reps, and it upset me. I pushed twice as hard as I normally would just to get through my workout, and all I could think was I am a loser.

D is not pleased.
