I didn’t start thinking about writing anything in LJ till 11:38 this evening. I guess it’s no surprise that I missed the midnight “deadline.” But I have only been to bed once since I wrote last, so I think this kinda counts for today/yesterday/whatever.
My new work computer (mentioned in Saturday’s post) is pretty nice. I mean, it’s pretty nice that I don’t have to deal with a slow, arthritic machine with outdated software. Of course, now this means they might expect more output from me, so all is not skittles and beer.
At the gym, my trainer changed my routine from the old-school weightlifting I was doing for a few weeks to one that’s relies on just my body weight and is cardio and endurance oriented. The new routine kicked my butt as badly as the old one did. I guess that’s the point.
It appears that the most recent DDOS attack on LJ has abated. I never really noticed this one. LJ said they had added a lot of capacity to absorb such things.
All in all, it was a Monday, but not a terribly ugly one. Well, except for the cold front that swept through with a lot of rain, sweeping away the above-average temperatures of the last few days. Back to seasonal for here, I guess.
I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
