(was) exhausted tonight
Thursday, March 07, 2013
went to the gym intending only to wog a bit and do some ST and go home. Ended up not walking, playing pickleball for a good long time, and then doing less ST than I'd planned, but still more the the blc's tnt dictates, so I'm ok with that. The jog wasn't hideous either, at 9:54.95, probably the first time since high school (aka 20 years) ago that I did a mile in under 10 minutes. Pickleball was a bit weird today, my wrist was hurting, and there were only a few of us, taking advantage of the open gym to play. Odd how sometimes the exact same combination of players produces diametrically opposite results. There was no predicting how any one game would go today. By the end of it, I was pretty out of it. Got home, ate most of dinner, and grabbed a couple of slices of avocado at the end, and 30 seconds later, I was sprinting to the bathroom where I proceeded to give dinner back. One thing was obvious - I really don't chew my food enough. Apparently, I also don't like avocado when it isn't smushed up with other stuff into guacamole form. Which is rather not believable, seeing as how my go to sandwich at my favorite bars in Madison was the ABLT - Avocado bacon lettuce and tomato. One of those sites had sliced avocado, the other had a paste, but either way it was delicious. So, in other words, I have no idea why the system rejected the 'cado tonight. I also have no idea why I'm averse to paragraphs this evening, but there you have it. Reading material grabbed from the library yesterday included a autobiography of Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine. Not really a fan of the man on a personal level, but he's made some fantastic music over the years. The book is kind of fascinating so far, a don't give a rip tone to it that fits my conception of the guy. Curious to see what he says about the revolving cast of characters that is Megadeth.

Another book I grabbed is entitled FlashForward, which was the source of the TV show from a few years ago. I liked the concept, though I never got around to watching the show before it was cancelled. I never knew that there was a book behind it. Not only that, a book by an author (Robert Sawyer) whose work I really enjoy. So, I'm looking forward to diving into that. And now, a decision to make. Do I eat something, based on the fact that I'm hungry, or let my still unsettled stomach rule the evening and just (try) to go to sleep? Maybe if I was still feeling as exhausted as when I started typing this out 20 minutes ago, the second option would win out. But a second wind has blown, and I am, after all, starving. I suspect the answer will be milk and cookies.
