dance class & other stuff  
Last night one of the women at dance class told me, and irishkate heartily agreed, that I looked like I wasn't getting any exercise. *laugh* They're right. I don't. :) I mean, I'm breaking a sweat in class and all, but I'm not turning red or having sweat fly off me in big fat drops, which is what I'd expect from a class that really worked me. I admitted that this was not nearly as vigorous a class as I'm used to, and the woman said I must exercise a lot. (Hah!) Several other people turn red, though, so maybe I'm in better condition than I think I am.

I asked the teacher if she taught any tap classes, and she said no, she'd never taken tap, and no one around there taught it, because, well, it was a kind of old-fashioned style of dance, wasn't it.


On another note, Ted did a magnificent job of cleaning the office computer room yesterday (I have to remember that my office is The Office, and the room with the other computers in it is the Computer Room. Ted says that's how it is. :)). I need to bring the old printer cartridge for my laser printer over to the post office to ship it back for recycling, and that'll take care of the last of the messy things in this room. The house is shaping up! We do desperately need a filing cabinet, but that's going to have to wait a bit.

Let's see. Oh, free to a good home: If I know anybody in the Cork area (or not, as long as they have a vehicle to move stuff in) who would like one or two twin beds (mattresses, divans and headboards) for the price of picking them up, or (more likely) if I know anybody who knows somebody in Cork who'd etc, please respond in comments or email me (cemurphyauthor@gmail.com). I'll post on jumbletown in a few days if I don't get any takers, but I figured I'd ask here first.

Hungry now. Lunch, then work.

Ah, room naming. Isn't it fun?

We have 'the blue room' and 'the green room' as two of our rooms. And when we redecorated (getting away from the ... interesting ceiling to floor underwater scene of the blue room), we did approximately keep the colour schemes, even if the octopuses and fairies went.

(The fairies were in the green room - no, no underwater fairies here. We're a Kelpie free zoone.)

See, "the blue room" and "the green room" make excellent sense. Unfortunately, all of our rooms are cream. :)

I see a simple solution, though.
kitmizkit on September 27th, 2007 09:46 am (UTC)
I'm considering it. :)

you want exercise?

Take up mountainwalking...
And strap on a heavy backpack...
kitmizkit on September 27th, 2007 09:32 am (UTC)
That sounds horrible! :)

That depends on WHAT you have in your backpack...

If it contains a stove, a can of good food, maybe something to drink, like apple cider...

If I could walk up hill at all I wouldn't need the exercise.....

Then stay on the flat. Just get off the asphalt/concrete. That stuff is really bad for your feet.

Get a small backpack, stuff it with something good(and not too unhealthy. Fruit, nut mix, OJ, a chocolate for when you reach your destination... ) and make a day out of it...

A pair of hiking staves also helps.
