And now for some fin completely different:

Today was

Abject failure in the morning

Short fast vibrams run in the evening

Handstand practice

Pushups (lots but didn't count)

Portuguese podcast

Going to bed too late.

 

For a minute I thought you were going for a haiku.

In bed late last night

Lie-in or go for a swim?

Breep Breep goes the clock

How's that, Ms Crusher?

Only four point five hours' sleep

I'll regret it later.

If you like haikus

Well, I expunged the ignominy of yestermorning's #alarmfail by getting up and out to the pool this morning before work. Now I just have to stay awake for the rest of the day.

Uff. Family film night is always a snackathon. I deliberately avoided the food shop on the way home because I knew I'd come out with wine, nachos, chocolatey things... And my plan would have worked but for Mrs 18ck who baked delicious biccies and left them out where I could see them instead of in a safe surrounded by barbed wire so now I look like Jabba the Hutt but it's not my fault. I was powerless in this situation and there's not a jury in the land that would... Etc.

Anyway, today's movie, Calamity Jane (the real CJ, of course was a proper scout, so it fits!). Daughter fascinated. Lots of songs and plenty to talk about re the role of women. We decided it was fine to leap onto horses and to wear pretty pink dresses. Both legit. Me, I don't care so long as I can sing in a deep voice like Howard Keel.

You brits talk funny

*Actually, I love Brits.  Am meeting up with a British friend of mine on Monday.  I'm hoping he brings me a Yorkie.  Or a lemon Fanta.

'sright. It's short for biscuits. And biscuits aren't those things you call biscuits, they're the things you call cookies.

God, I'm stuffed. Busy, busy day, but doing sedentary stuff so not much exercise. Mrs 18ck brought treats and... *sigh* I have no willpower when certain foods are near me.

So just a hundred or so press - ups. Rubbish. I'll never destroy the Galaxy at this rate. Huge day planned for tomorrow though. If I do even half of it it'll be epic. The stuff of legends. Stars will explode, world's collide, dogs and cats living together. You know, biblical.

I have this problem, too.  I love baking and bringing in treats for my co-workers.  But the problem is, once I start, I can't stay out of them.  But don't fret.  You can use your galaxy destroying powers to just throw those urges into a  black hole.

Well, it all went well. I got up early and went to scull at the rowing club. It was a slow start because there was some mess to clear up after last night's party and then some people were running a 10k race on the towpath between the boathouse and the River (Tch! Runners! So selfish!) so we had to wait for a break in the pack and then run across with our boats. At one point, the men's crew went across with an 8 (i.e. An 8-person sweep-rowing boat, about 40 feet long) held above their heads and told the runners to run under the arches created between the rowers and under the boat. All good-natured fun.

When I finished, Flyer19 and Mrs 18ck were out for a run/walk, and then I went for a short, fast run. Then it was time for a big family swim, and finally some handstands and playground parkour. My arms got tired quickly so I couldn't do much more than about 5 mins of handstand practice, but it was all good. Dinner was a bit indulgent, (we ate out for the first time in ages) but I'm not worried because it was such a great day.

Anyway, in my quest to destroy the Galaxy, today was the attack on Jupiter. When I fled the scene, its largest moon, Ganymede, was hurtling towards the planet's surface, threatening disaster, but you'll have to wait until morning for @Flyer19 to tell you if she was able to save the day with her assassin skills.

A bit Meh today. I lacked a plan. I did a load of pushups, Stretches and light pilates at the end of the day and listened to some Portuguese interviewers fail (as far as I could tell) to give their interviewee (some astrologist/new age type) a sufficiently hard time. I need to do better than this though, and I still don't have a replacement for my ill - conceived food goal...

Basically... Failing.

I'm enjoying my battle with Flyer19 though. She has saved Jupiter now, and learned to play the batman theme tune on the guitar. It doesn't get any better than that.
