And then it struck me - Tactical Ninja

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Yesterday morning when I went to go to the gym, it was shut (duh!) so instead I went for a walk and ended up lost in the maze of paths up on Mt Victoria. It smelled strongly of pine and took me back to the days when pine trees were something to play in.

This morning the gym was open and they were having Bogan Day on the video entertainment thingy. They played Stairway to Heaven while I was doing my tuckups and it took me back to the days when I was stoned all the time and trying hard to believe that the hippiebogan life was for me. There were good things in those times, even if ultimately it didn't work out.

Anyway, there's a lyric in Stairway to Heaven that, even if it doesn't quite sum up 2012, certainly seems to work for right now, so I'm putting it here for posterity. This can be my lyric for 2013.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.


I've never been a big LedZep fan (I know, I made a hopeless hippiebogan), but this kind of works so I'm taking it. There's still time to change the road you're on. Yup.

I'm pretty sure it opened about 10 minutes after I passed through - I was there pretty early and I imagine New Year's Day they open about 10. I went on Christmas Day too and that was 9ish?

But yeah, I'm glad they were open too - I've been needing to get moving a lot these holidays.

Yep, I'm feeling that way too. Trying to convince M that 37 is not 'too late' to start new things. Yay for long walks :)

I have a friend that challenges herself to learn or do one new thing every year. Thanks to that she's done everything from learning to ride a motorcycle to taking up running and really, the sky's the limit. I reckon it's a pretty good plan. ;-)
