lovely! super cool/romantic in a very deadly way that you and the ms enjoyed dressing up together.

 

She's not been that into costuming for a while, so when she proposed (and made) the costumes this year, I was just all in for whatever she suggested. I think one reason for the increased enthusiasm is the fact that we're both in better shape than we've been in for a long time.

So, here's what's coming: 

 

Tonight I do some prep work for the article that's due Monday, and cook a very easy dinner -- veggie hot dogs, which I've adopted as a fallback position a couple of nights this week and I'm okay with that. Ms. Rogue is going to kickboxing class and will be home late.

 

Tomorrow I have almost the whole day to write at home -- I have a dentist appointment in the morning and an hour of online reference service in the afternoon, but otherwise I'm writing all day. I usually treat myself and walk a few minutes to the burrito place near my house when I work at home.

 

Saturday we're kickboxing in the morning. After missing last week (Dragoncon, no regrets) and doing very little exercise in the interval, I'm a little afraid of it. But I'm getting back on the mf'ing horse.

 

Saturday afternoon I have a gaming get-together/late lunch -- we're starting up a tabletop RPG and my friend the GM wants to get together at a bar to make characters for an hour or two. I do not want a drink after last weekend, but they have good food and some not too unhealthy options.

 

Sunday morning is usually the Buddhist temple for meditation, but a couple of weeks ago we went and it was just so hot and unpleasant that we both had a bad time. I told Ms R that I need to take a break until the weather cools off, as it seems their A/C isn't up to it lately. 

 

Otherwise, I'm spending the entire weekend writing. I'm hoping I can get most of it done on Friday and not have to spend my whole weekend working. I have been teaching all week, which really saps my energy, and haven't gotten as much preliminary work done on it as I'd have liked. But I'm getting paid a small chunk of much needed extra money for it, so it'll be worth it.

 

I'm daring to hope that next week my life will be a little calmer for a while, and I can get back to regular workout routine and back to work on the book, which I am determined to finish this year.

 

PS: forgot to mention I saw a Runner 5 cosplay at Dragoncon. I'm considering stealing the idea for next year.

Also, my friend got us a room on the "executive" floor of our hotel at Dragoncon, which had a private lounge area, and the following people were also up there with us:

 

Alex Kingston, William Shatner, Scott Adsit, Tosh and Ianto from Torchwood, Doc Hammer, some people from Dark Matter which I don't watch, TV's Frank, Doc Hammer. Also we sat at the next table to Benedict Cumberbatch at lunch one day. No big.

....sooooo jealous.

 

Dark Matter is pretty good. At least season 1, haven't watched 2 yet and I've heard it's been picked up for 3 even. :)

Okay, today is Adulting Day: dentist appointment in a few minutes, then turning on my browser blocker and writing at home all day. 

 

There's both a new Nick Cave album AND a new Jack White collection out.

 

Treating myself to a lunch out with a short walk. Making pizza for dinner because I'm so pretty that I deserve nice things.

 

Let's do this.

 

(Tomorrow, reboarding the Fitness Train at Kickboxing Station)

I survived, barely. This was one of those classes where I just tried to keep moving without dying until they told me I could stop.

 

I'm just resurfacing for breath between work and writing. A little embarrassed at how little exercise I'm managing lately, so I didn't post much over the weekend...

 

You, quite literally, could not have done less than me this last week so know you aren't alone. :)

I'll make it -- just making a note to myself to say no to everything next September besides eating and sleeping. The article's due tomorrow, trying to knock it out today, students are hammering at my door making a gym break nigh-impossible today. Maybe I can at least get in a walk this evening -- I bet it's still too hot for a zombie run. 

 

A set of push-ups. God, I bet I could manage a set of push-ups after the grocery store tonight, though. I'm going through workout withdrawal! What have I become??
