Nice galaxy destroying so far and belated congrats on the marathon!

Oh dear - but you did go running which is a win. I have spent way too much time in my running gear and then not running. Hope the weather perks up, that always makes me feel less listless.

Thanks on both counts. Yesterday was a bit feeble too (brief handstand, 2 pages of HPEAPF) but I seem to be pulling out of my mope now. Glad to see you back online.

Using my time like a boss today. Up early, did a ton of ace work, had a lunchtime visit to the GP so used the journey to stop in the park and slackline for a while. I tried to take a selfie while doing it but the consequences were disastrous. Then at the end of the day, having been stood up by my rowing partner, I jogged to the club, did a (light) weight circuit (I'm hopeless with weights but I try) and jogged home.

In other news: handstands.

Ok, I've got my swimming gear packed for tomorrow morning. Let's see if my resolve survives the ringing of the alarm...

*wonders what blondies are*

*decides they are cakes in the shape of Debbie Harry*

*remembers blondie is a group*

*doesn't care*

Mm, it's hard with fussy children. The compromise I often use when I cook is to make what I'm having but make a child size portion of - usually - pasta pesto to have as a side dish for Flyer, so she has some of what we're having plus the carbohydrate energy she needs to keep doing little girl stuff. That seems to work OK mostly and of course she still has to eat veg with exemptions only for her (other) arch-nemesis the mushroom. Luckily Flyer is relatively unfussy though, so maybe I have it easier...

 

You are killing the workouts, sir. I must visit flyer19's page to make sure she is staying on track, else the galaxy will be destroyed soon.

 

Ha ha ha...Blondie!  CALL ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  *crazy 80's dance*

 

IOK, now that that is out of my system....Blondies are heavenly.  They are kind of like chocolate chip cookies, excepted baked in a pan, and use all brown sugar and about twice as much butter.  Mmmmmmm......

 

Nice that flyer19 isn't picky!  Good solution with the pasta pesto.  I have one who will eat just about anything (including mushrooms and olives, the weirdo) and one who is very particular about what he eats.  He doesn't like to eat anything green.  Literally, he tells me this.  Where did he get that from?  As an example, last night I made ham and apples.  He likes ham.  He likes apples.  But apparently when you put them together and heat them up, it causes a major catastrophe.  He cried and threw a tantrum and said he wanted something else (yeah right--a short order cook I am not).  Then he came over to the table and ate a piece of ham, but said he wasn't going to eat the green things.  "Hon, those are apples. You like apples."  "Well I don't like THESE apples."  Then he took a bite of one and ate it no problem, and said, "See, I don't like them!"  And then he gobbled up the rest.

@hermionecrusher thanks fellow 80's fan. Yeah, I seem to remember Flyer aged about 3 going from "I ONLY eat peas!" to "I DON'T LIKE peas" overnight because she read a book called that. I think that's pretty tame by toddler standards though.

Evidence of listlessness:

I got up early, put in my running stuff, cycled to the park, sighed, walked up and down, sighed again, etc. (repeat for half hour) went home.

I did the strength training mainly to get myself going and in the evening went for a run only because my OCD wouldn't allow me to wear my running gear for 12 hours and *not* run. It was a short one, though, and in the rain, which seemed to sum it up.

 

This may be evidence of listlessness  -- but lots of evidence to the contrary on the other entries!  People who spend so much energy destroying galaxies certainly need a "catch-your-breath-and-regroup" day once in a while!

do i have to get what a flolloper is.... being not english ? :)

p.s. i use my bag of frozen peas as cool pack for my archilles tendons..... dont think ill eat them after their medical career... :)

Well, if you haven't already read it, I can strongly recommend the five books of the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy "Trilogy". In this case, flolloping is something a live mattress does in its natural habitat - the swamps of Sqornshellous Zeta

http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=P9TtdsxotpIC&pg=PT333&lpg=PT333&dq=flollop+mattress&source=bl&ots=kchj1tAB2d&sig=4WgGXYKX9c9XAd2yGBe_SR5wCb8&hl=en&sa=X&ei=MHNZU_qiFseP7AbQoYDYBw&ved=0CEwQ6AEwCQ

And no, I think I'd leave the peas alone too. Save them for when you have visitors and tell them you're paleo, and no, can't possibly share the legumes with them, so they should feel free to finish them all.

By the way, despite the sleepiness I am still very proud of you, 18ckipper.

Thanks!

That's quite an apposite nickname BTW - in the UK "kip" means "sleep"

Hm.... A kipper isn't a live fish though - It's a smoked herring isn't it ? I think I'll stick to being asleep rather than breakfast!

Damn it, man! I don't know.

Fine, be an 18ckoi then. Not that that has any of the same charm or ring to it.

I won't carp about that.
