Mondays suck...Actually I lie: Monday was awesome. Happy not-quite-your-birthday, Queen Victoria! I got to sleep in late, not do any real work of any sort, and watch four hours of season finales (24, CSI: Miami and Medium).
The only close-to-bad thing that happened all day was that I had to mow my lawn after what seemed like a full week of rain every day. The grass was so tall and thick that the lawnmower wouldn't start until I tilted it up to get the blade away from the grass so it could actually rotate. Seriously, someone needs to invent the emolawn.
This morning's workoutStarting a couple weeks ago, every wednesday I do a chest/stomach/lower back workout. Monday is legs and Friday is shoulders arms and neck. Here's what my trunk workout involves:
20 pushups (the kind that actually works the pecs and not the shoulders... hands low and inside) 30 crunches (upper abs) 30 leg raises (lower abs) 30 crunches from my right side (left lovehandles) 30 crunches from my left side (right lovehandles) 15 reps lifting my 50lb barbell from bent-at-waist to full vertical (lower back)
All that x3 with 15 minute breaks in between sets
Then after about 5 minutes I lie on my back and do that exercise where you pretend you're riding a bicycle in the air, bringing elbows in to meet the opposing knee.
I'm about to do the bicycle exercise, then shower, eat, and become immobile for 5 hours until LOST is on at 6. "Wait a second," I hear you cry, "LOST isn't on at 6!" Well, it is when you're watching the feed out of Newfoundland on a Canadian satellite dish. I'll know everything from the show before you even see it. I love living in Canada!
Today I went out to buy a new camera, where by new I mean first; I've never bought a camera before, but it seemed relevant for my vacation to Austin in a couple weekends. I looked at exactly one factor when choosing the camera: price. I don't have any money, and what money I used to have has been spent on getting down there and making sure I don't get picked up as a drifter and my spleen removed. I ended up getting an end of line 2.0mp digital camera for $30, and a 128mb memory card for another $25 so I can take more than 30 pictures while I'm down there (seems somehow relevant).
Of course, the first thing I found out about the camera is that the video capture feature is fucked. The instructions say to press the shutter button once to start recording, and once to stop. Well, I hit the shutter button, then I hit it again, and it kept on recording anyway. I had to remove the batteries to get it to stop, and then the video wasn't saved. Good thing I don't plan on recording any video with my picture camera, isn't it?
I also got a haircut today. The new image in my gallery is a picture of me taken with my brand new end of line camera with my brand new cutting edge (heh) haircut. My hair isn't emo though, I required a barber to get it cut.
