No fooling

Hey, look. Ferrari finally came out with a car I like since the old 50s Berlinettas. I'm not surprised at how much I like it, though. I mean, it looks like the Maserati Gran Turismo. A lot like the Gran Turismo. In fact (sorry Maserati), I think I might like the Berlinetta better. This is a serious sea change. I have never been a huge fan of the house of Prancing Horse. That's due largely from leftover distaste for their style choices of the 80s--but that can be said for so many things, can't it. I'm looking at you, preppie pop-collar crowd. Of course, the fact that the new F12berlinetta is, according to Road & Track magazine (yes, we do subscribe, why do you ask?) "the fastest of any production Ferrari to date" doesn't exactly put a damper on my feelings for it.

OMG this PostSecret card. <3

In case anyone is wondering WTF happened with the Crossfit stuff: I'm planning to start next Monday (the 9th). I let life get in the way, and didn't prioritize the exercise stuff. And by "prioritize" I mean "write in my planner." So I actually did write CROSSFIT 8PM down for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for the next two weeks. This meant canceling/postponing some social obligations, but as I read (just this morning!) in this very excellent blog post, "Fitness is More About Time Management Than Skill." So so so true.

Still on the Exercise Inspiration portion of today's post, try reading this and not get a little teary-eyed. Wow. I mean, just wow.

It's been a while since I gushed about the awesomeness that is Scott Sonnon, so here's a reminder. Oh, Coach Sonnon. All my <3s.

Today I'm actually going do stuff. I had such high aspirations for yesterday, but then Laundry Happened and I just can't work in my sewing room when the washer and dryer are running. Loud and humid. Ugh. Also, I totally got sucked into (read "dicked around on") a fandom LJ community that was/is having an online resource/consolation party post for people who couldn't make it to a certain fan convention this weekend. Everyone there seemed super nice, and due South was one of the highlighted fandoms, so. I wrote up a little introductory post and acquainted myself with some very nice people. But it meant I didn't get much done. Except for the laundry.

Because the KU men's basketball team somehow managed to pull a win out of their asses last night, I gotta cancel my Monday evening acupuncture appointment. Well, opted to cancel it. Kiva's office is smack in the middle of Massachusetts Street, so can you imagine the nightmare of getting in and out? This is what it looked like last night after we won the game that'll send us to the final championship playoff. JFC. No, thank you. Due to her taking vacation next week, and changing her appointment schedule, I'm looking at three weeks between appointments.

In an effort to stave off even moar bullshit swelling issues (I haven't gone a full three weeks between appointments since I started going to regular acupuncture sessions), I'm being extra super-duper careful about what I eat for the month of April. Basically, I'm going hardcore Whole30 with the exceptions of coffee on the weekends and (let's be honest) my daily wine. No restaurant food, no pre-prepped stuff from the grocery store (sob! oh, rotisserie chikkins, I miss you already!). It comes naked from my kitchen or not at all.

Naked from my kitchen is an awesome-sounding group of words.

Okay, that mention of actually getting shit done today? Probably should go follow-up on that in a more actual and meaningful fashion. ETA: After cutting out the pieces for my car-working coveralls, I am questioning my decision to make them out of this narrow-stripe twill. The moire effect is making my eyes cross. Time for a break.

HO SHIT. I just found out that I can get a good wireless connection on my front porch. D'you know what this means? Porn and cigarettes at the same time. I am in so much trouble.
