We could be arguing all week about what is cyborg stuff and what is not... Maybe we should have a cyborg table of contens as a guide :lol:

 

Were we using "cyborg" to mean people who do an unbelievably large amount of things, like a machine? Or as you said the other day:

Forgot to mention. I did take a long look to the news website today :(  Not specially stressing, but too much time invested for such a meaningless activity.

Self-defence day. And my boyfriend is back to it too! Today was rather tiring. We had just finished one of our warming routines when one guy that wanted to try arrived. He was invited to take part of the class that had just began, and to show him the basics of touching/pushing/grabbing, we redid the warm up. Standing, kneeling, sitting and lying. And then with push-ups and sit-ups in between. And then with f*** burpees. And then with "weapons" (foam knives and sticks). And if someone stabbed you, you had to do 5 knees to chest jumps. I was stabbed many times. Please kill me and let's get over with this. Fortunately, the other instructor came to the rescue and we had a fun part with actual sticks, combined with boxing, and then only boxing. No sparring, thanks god.

Back at home, in the afternoon, I've done my backward/forward stretches and an abs routine. 

 

Now I'll relax with icelandic and will work on my flute when heat goes down.

 

Oh, and something wonderful. Yesterday, a friend called my boyfriend to ask him if he would like to earn some money cleaning his grandmother box room. Aside of the money, they were offered to take home some things the grandma wanted to throw away. My boyfriend chose one pair of totally new high quality mountain boots for me (a tad big, but easy to solve with thick socks and an insole), and a cd player. Our sound system broke years ago and we never bought another one for this or this other reason (we have a saying in Spain for this: en casa del herrero, cuchillo de palo), and this is a superb one, so finally! we can hear again our most beloved music with awesome quality. For first use, we had lunch listening to the eccentric Gilles Apap's version of the Vivaldi's seasons, so fun and weird (violin, double bass, accordion and cymbalum, with some whistling :D).

Very productive day. Cool that you got some treasure. I think hiking boots a tad big are better anyway, since you usually wear thick socks

nice haul! we have a similar saying in my house but it is more family specific, something about the electrician's family never having any outlet covers. yours is MUCH more graceful sounding.

It is SO HOT again

Resultado de imagen de hell gif

 

I was not sure I would be able to attend self-defence tomorrow, so I decided to go today again. It was eskrima class, with some self-defence mixed in, so much lighter than yesterday.

Then in the afternoon, I've worked a bit on icelandic after lunch, meditated, done some back and shoulder stretches and practiced a bit the crow and my couch handstand. Now taking a recovery shake right before music practice.

I am liking this challenge. I feel I am doing a lot of work and steadily improving several areas.

 

Something curious I learnt today from the icelandic blog I am reading, is that a few years back somebody found that a weird stain in Munch's Scream was indeed bird shit. It seems Munch liked to put his paintings outdoors to sit when they were finished so this happened sometimes and the restorers had the doubt whether the bird shit belonged to the painting or should be removed :D

It's almost half past nine and we've got 38ºC. Believe me, you don't want any of this.

Hmmm, I like the heat in the day, I hate it at night, but either way 38 degrees is a step too far into madness for me thanks.

That's double the "summer" temperatures we have here. :D I wouldn't mind a bit more sunshine, but I'd seriously melt in your temps! How do you even cope and manage to get anything done at all?

Cold showers, fans, mopping the floor with abundant water, paying attention to open or close windows and blinds at proper times, sleeping outside...

I could say the same about YOUR winter temperatures. I would spend the whole day crying and trying to warm my feet.

In Scandinavia we have a thing called insulation. :P Inside temperatures are always super warm. I've honestly been way colder in both the UK and California! Outside is a different story, but even then, with the right clothes it's not too bad. You can always add layers, but there's only so many clothes you can take off when it's hot. :)

that's happy wearing shorts in winter

You wonder how people can work out and keep their makeup perfect (why would anybody put on make up to work out totally escapes me, by the way), I wonder how those people can put on their shorts when it's freezing
