  1. Always thought Nano was cool, but never had an idea worth writing about. October 31, I had a "heh, that'd be cool" idea, managed to scrape together something that might resemble an outline at a distance, signed up for nano, and now I am wrecking myself daily. SO far this week I have: 4 times gotten less than 5 hours of sleep in a night 3 times forgotten to eat a meal Daily neglected my work to play with outlining 3 times decided I was a genius 5 times decided I was a talentless hack 2 times decided to quit written 10,460 words. How is everyone else holding up?
  2. Really late to the party, but behold the Eye of Sauron. [ATTACH=CONFIG]993[/ATTACH]
  3. I hear you're supposed to inhale/exhale when your left foot hits the ground. I've done that whenever I get a stitch and it goes away very quickly.
  4. I'm not so much lazy as I enjoy instant gratification like reading and watching TV. Given a choice between getting sweaty or kicking back with a beverage and a book, the later is way more appealing to me (and doesn't require effort!). So, I say to myself "k, absolutely, you get to read and chill and it will rock. But first, do this." and my inner 5 year old says " k!" because it only heard the first half, and I get moving before I start trying to talk myself out of it. As soon as you try to bargain with yourself ("but I'm tired!" "but I dont want to!" "but it doesn't really matter if I dont
  5. Thanks, Catspaw! The cookies and brownies were indeed rediculously delicious. The Master Chef is also a very talented baker. I am terribly spoiled. Awww, hugs for the love you guys. I know you're there for me, and I take much comfort in your support, believe me. I have just found that when I say I suck and other people say I dont, I tend to try to prove that I'm right instead of being comforted. Combination of being both incredibly stubborn and clinically depressive. S'all good, storm is weathered! Caco, I am a total yogaslut. My favoritest studio in the world is http://www.sanguineyoga.com/
  6. Also, if anyone has any awesome pumpkin recipes to deal with the no-doubt excessive amount of pumpkin we'll all end up with by haloween, post 'em here!
  7. I'm still here, I'm still here!! Sorry for the long silence. Last week I self-diagnosed my worsening knee issues as Running Knee. It got to the point where even walking and lunges caused clicking and pain, so stopped, did nothing for a few days and sulked. I suck and I can't do anything without hurting myself and everything is horrible forever, blah blah blah. I figured no one wanted to listen to that, so I took some time to myself. Once knees started feeling better this last weekend I started walking 5k instead of running it (grumbling all the way, you can be sure), did some research on the
  8. MONDAY: Got up on time, bed on time Paleo homemade breakfast lunch and dinner. 14 Day 100% Paleo Mini-Challenge: 13 Days. Exercise: Wasn't sore, but was very tired. Tai chi and stretching, 30 minutes. Uh.. guess I should mention, every weekday I walk on my breaks and lunchhour, so every day theres about an hour and a half of walking to add to my actual listed totals. Quick Food Recipe of the Day: Can of salmon, 1/2 avocado, cucumber bits. Mix together with salt, pepper, and spice of your choice, have on salad. DELICIOUS.
  9. Rob, the hotdog weekend makes me shudder. Hotdog COOKIES?! Tell him to switch to bacon!! The baconfest was a fundraiser for some Jazz and Fine Foods Organization and I think it was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, but they underestimated the amount of bacon-lovers in this city. Lineups were INSANE. Pinup, it WAS awesome. I'd do that every weekend without regrets! Caco: Thank you, thank you. Whole costume ended up costing about $15. I almost bought bright yellow tights to go with the ensemble, but I couldn't quite bring myself to. I have my pride! Not much, but enough! Week 3 Summary: Homemade
  10. Supermoderator is a formality - got privilages to help format the forums a while back and so far no one has taken it away yet. But I keep trooping on! Maybe your security guys joined the Rebellion too? o_O Regardless, take it as a sign!
  11. Dave! Welcome back!! I've wondered what you've been up to since you left. Congrats on the upcoming nuptuals! So exciting!!
  12. I was more of a dinosaurs kid, but I can certainly appreciate the wonder of the rainbow! not a competition so much as a "raise money then go hang out for a while" sort of event. Though they did pit companies against eachother in various fitness challenges for the amusement of all. SATURDAY: Got up on time, bed on time. Paleo brunch and dinner, but more importantly, BACONFEST!!! It's the most wonderful time of the year..... Bacon EVERYTHING, down to bacon pancakes, cupcakes and chocolates. I somehow managed to stay paleo and focused on the Bacon Games instead. Pictures shall be forthcoming. E
  13. Good luck, man! Big step. You can do it!
  14. Colin: It was funny! I would also be a big fan of the Triprocrastathon!
  15. Sorry! Emptied, and ready for all the love you choose to send.
