Well I figured out how to set my new plyo box at 16″ anyway

I was SO excited to see a big box on the front steps last night. Got this hefty piece of equipment out of the box and up the stairs immediately. Looked at the manual this morning & set it from lowest to 16″. Then I stood in front… Will I be able to jump on it? I’m not even sure!! This is the same one … Continue reading Well I figured out how to set my new plyo box at 16″ anyway

Funny that the people interested in saving me are those I haven’t seen in 30+ years

One of them is a liberal intellectual, more like myself. The other’s a cocaine dealer. The former wanted to marry me in first grade, and is now a VP at a Massachusetts based startup.  It’s a bit hypothetical at the moment, but he’s got enough clout to possibly secure a “support based” gig for me at his company. I’d be making less than half what … Continue reading Funny that the people interested in saving me are those I haven’t seen in 30+ years

Thought it was older than that. The movie was only three years later, which is pretty rapid turnaround. I looked it up on Amazon but it’s not available for streaming, not that … Continue reading Coaxing oneself along with planned rewards & Meditation

Ilani, my first ever casino experience #portlandia

I tried it once! Sort of. It’s not really going to a casino if you don’t gamble and don’t spend any money whatsoever. I came out of there with a bunch of goodies though, thanks to H and her points. Breakfast. A new water / coffee bottle. Cake, coffee, some safety gadget for your car… I forget what it does. I think it’s for busting … Continue reading Ilani, my first ever casino experience #portlandia

My cats are the first people I see every day

Up at 6am Back when I got the temporary gig at The Office, Portlandia, I bought a compact coffeemaker with a timer, and installed it in the corner of the sink in my bathroom, next to the inexplicably only outlet. I’d set it up in the evening, before every weekday morning, to start brewing at 5:55. Today I’m not going to sit in an office … Continue reading My cats are the first people I see every day

Had a little getaway in Sunset, OR this week

A friend of mine won a couple nights at a condo there & because we both have flexible schedules, we picked out a time in the middle of the week. Lo and behold we were blessed with amazing weather for the Oregon coast for this time of year, sunny and warm. There are no pictures of us in here! I’ll get to a WO later today. … Continue reading Had a little getaway in Sunset, OR this week
