This Week's Random Thoughts

I'm still trying to figure out why people in the gym have such a hard time re-racking their weights after lifting.  Maybe they worked just so hard that they no longer have the energy to pick up the weight and put it in the rack?  How about doing fewer reps so you still have some strength left to hoist that bad boy into it's proper slot?

How Do Be Dumb (equestrian version) - You start trotting along.  You decide to look down and check your diagonal.  You see it's correct.  Then you sit and change it anyway.

I don't care how much you paid for it.  I don't care where it's imported from. I don't care if it's lovingly handcrafted.  I don't care if the rest of the boys in your boys' club do it.  A cigar looks and smells like a turd on fire and you will have none of my respect for smoking one.
(If you are one of those folks who is always crying about the "socialist" government or how all teh eebil libruls want to turn us all into communists, and yet still long to smoke, or have smoked, illegal Cubans, then my mirth at your hypocrisy will be unmerciful.)
(If you have ever lived in Cuba and smoked legal cigars while you lived there, I won't call you a hypocrite, but the turd on fire thing still apples.  Stop doing that.)

Happy happy! Joy joy!  Today in Zumba class my teacher said she noticed I was slimming down.  Yay!

Is it just me, or is Dr. Who kind of lame this season?

I have decided that there is something decidedly untrustworthy about shower curtain rings.  How can something disappear so completely and then reappear again as if it had never gone missing in the first place? Shower curtain rings are shifty little buggers!

I'm sick of people asking, "Where is spring?" and "When will spring get here?" Folks, it's April.  We're past the equinox.  We have more hours of daylight than darkness.  There are buds on the trees and flowers peeking up out of the ground.  So the weather isn't perfect?  Face it.  Your ideal of what spring weather should be like is wildly inaccurate. The chilly, cloudy, and rainy days are pretty typical of April in New York (and typical of April in the whole northeast really).  We're bound to have some very pleasant days in the coming weeks as well.  Just don't complain too much if they don't stick around.  Accept that the weather will be unpredictable until at least the beginning of June, and possibly even through much of June.  You'll be much happier if you keep your expectations low and stop believing in some perfect spring.
