Those wascally wabbits!

I've decided that you're all wrong and that it's because my right arm belongs to someone else. In fact, it could be that my entire right side belongs to someone else. Also, whoever it is, you can have it back. Not only does it have a strangely smelly armpit, it also now has a weird muscular shoulder pain, a pulled lower abdominal muscle and some kind of pressure thing in the wrist. These three things, I think, are all related to pushups.

The only one that bothers me is the wrist one. Muscles heal fast, bones don't.

*cusses about girl-sized bones*

FFS why have we not evolved so that we can bear our bodyweight on our wrists yet? My Dad did lots of handstands, so I should have inherited strong wrists. Nyah.

There will be climbing tonight (sore bits? what sore bits?) followed by a healthy consumption of fish and chips. I am sticking to my goal of taking back my life and doing something physically active every day.

Monday - pushups. Tuesday - walked the length of Petone Beach and back. Wednesday - more pushups. Thursday - climbing. Tomorrow - still more freaking pushups (and there was something else too but I can't remember what it was). Weekend - lawnmowing. What? Not a physical activity? You should see our lawn - and our mower!

Last night there was a Gadgit and a Tami and oh boy do their BM costumes look awesome! They are going to have such a good time! *squees vicariously*

PS In my garden adventures this morning, I left a pair of pants and a singlet sitting folded on the garden wall. Flatties - if you happen to be passing, could you please put them inside in case it rains? Cheers.

That letter/song one. Cos I know you're all fascinated:

Fever - Ella Fitzgerald. C'mon, who doesn't love this song?

F.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.A.L.L.E.D.L.O.V.E - Pulp. Voicegasm! Seriously, anyone who wants to make women shaky at the knees, learn to talk like Jarvis Cocker.

For The Love Of It - Salmonella Dub. Picture yourself on the verandah of a large wooden house in the country with a few good friends, it's summer, mid afternoon, so hot you can barely move, there's lemonade, maybe a joint going round, you can see the sea, the grass is brown and you can smell the earth. Later you're going to have a barbeque and maybe go for a swim. Salmonella Dub are the perfect music for this situation. Oddly enough, it works for snowboarding trips too. Go figure.

Feral Frameshift - Tom Cosm. My favourite ever hooping track, and one of the earlier Cosm ones, more psy than breaks.

Fasten Your Seatbelt - Pendulum. My introduction to Pendulum and for some reason it always makes me think of the pink-haired gnomes from World of Warcraft, on speed.

Ifn you want a letter, comment.
