Merkin had the day off today, so we spent some quality time together at the gym. We didn’t see each other the whole time, though, because we were doing separate workouts. Merkin was practicing his swimming for the short triathlon. It’s 300 meters in the pool, 3 miles on the treadmill, and 10 miles on the bike. Doesn’t seem too bad (if you can swim, which I really can’t very well), but I couldn’t do them all together. Well, I couldn’t do the swimming at all. I did 30 minutes on the stationary bike and then walked. I almost typed “stationery bike”. Would that be a bike made out of stationery, or a bike for writing letters while you exercise?
On a completely unrelated note…or maybe I could create a clever segue using the letter-writing thing. Nah.
Has anyone else out there been receiving hate spam? I just got two of them totally dissing (sp?) my blog. Excuse me, but you’re not even a real person. Quit raining on my parade. I don’t write this blog for the enjoyment of others. I write it because it’s an outlet for what I’m thinking and feeling, a record of (some of) my doings, and…something else that’s all about me. That’s right. Me me me me me. Okay, and sometimes I like to post pictures of crafty things I make so that other people will compliment me. See? More me. It’s a very self-centered blog. Most of the time. I freely admit it. I do enjoy connecting with other people, but even if nobody ever commented, I’d still be writing this. Really. Honest and for true. Because it’s my blog. For me. What do I care what other people or computer-generated spam thinks of me?
And now I shall eat a cookie.
