Life. Love. Arithmatic

Rub my tummy for luck

I've signed up for this 12 week fitness challenge and I've got my initial assessment in half an hour. I've noticed in the last month or so my stomach is looking rather bhudda-like so I'm not not really looking forward to finding out how unfit I really am. I fear I shall come back depressed and feeling tired about life. But!

I had such an interesting time at work these last four days. How I didn't get fired for making fun of my boss's boss's boss when he was standing right behind me I shall never know!

Details to follow (also more stuff about T.B. I know it's boring you, but it makes me laugh. The kind of laugh hitting your funny bone with a tweleve ound hammer would make you laugh)

Wish me luck for my fitness assessment.

Can you kick yourself up the arse?

'Cause that's what I need to do.

Back from my fitness assessment. You'll be pleased to know that not only am I overweight (slighty) and underfit (more than slightly), I am also (severely) dehydrated. Nice going Erika! Three for three there!

A note to self: Self, remember this moment. Remember how crappy you feel knowing that you can't blame any of your weight on water retention.

Now do something about it!

Light 'er up

I would one day like to see a human sacrifice used to light an Olympic Torch. It would be very interesting, and, depending on the human used, could help bring all countries together.

I was thinking this as the guy lit the torch at Athens - I was very worried for his safety - and I began to wonder if that was part of the plan all along. If there had been a gust of wind at the wrong time he would have needed to change his pants at the very least. The same thing at the Sydney ones where Cathy Freeman stood in the middle of a ring of fire - Mother Nature doesn't like it when we mix things up like playing with fire. One day she'll turn on us. Lets face it - the organisers of the torch lighting are trying to get us ready for the human sacrifice.

They'll most likely use an athlete who has put the Games into disrepute. Or a Boy Band. The Boy Band would be more fun - you'd get a hit record, hit theme song for the Games and a catchy little dance number people can do.
