But not from blogging! Actually not really from work either since I will be participating in at least three conference calls today.
After hearing of the cancelation of our trivia outing I decided to eat the El Pollo Norteño dinner that I skipped on Wednesday night. It was a good meal, relatively cheap, and allowed me to wait out some of the traffic that built up last night.
I was home early enough to do all of the items on my newly-created agenda — German homework, reading of A Prayer for Owen Meany, cleaning, and general relaxation. Sadly my warm bed, in which I decided to do my reading, beat me into early submission and I was asleep very early. I doubt that it was even 9:00pm.
Early To Bed, Early To Rise
When that saying was coined I don’t think they meant 2am as “early” for rising, which is when I awoke this morning to the sound of falling rain. Try as I might to get back to sleep I failed for the next two hours. When I awoke again it was nearly 6:30am and too late for me to mount my trainer and get an hour in before the 8:00am conference call on which I sit while I type this.
Not The Best Solution, But A Solution Nonetheless
How do I get my daily exercise in today? Take the day “off” from work! I could have used the Winter Storm Warning issued this morning as an excuse not to go into the office, but I manned up and sent an email notifying my coworkers that I was going to take a paid day off. However, as I mentioned above this won’t really be a day off since I will be on at least three conference calls today.
I Know Who Won The First Amazing Race!
I finished watching the final episode of the first season of “The Amazing Race” yesterday. I was pleased.
Upon seeing the end, which finished mere twenty minutes from my childhood home, I did some research on the contestants. Turns out that two of the original contestants have died in the last fifteen years — Margaretta, the wife in the elderly couple, and almost surprisingly Nancy, the mother of Molly Ringwaldesque Emily. Here’s my source for that information, Wikia, The Amazing Race, Season 1.
Season two for my next few weeks of indoor training rides? Perhaps. Perhaps.
How Tough Are We?
As I see now the high temperature predicted for tomorrow will be 38°F. We wanted colder, “hockey” weather, we’re getting it! I can go either way on tailgating tomorrow. I will follow the ITP-Readership’s decision about what we should do.
Have a great, warm-as-possible, day friends!
