I've got the Power! (or not... in this case...)

Yet again, we're experiencing a heatwave.  It's actually rather nasty!  It rained suddenly yesterday and after it stopped I opened the door.  It was like getting slapped in the face with a hot, wet towel!

We lost power overnight the other day.  it was the first time in FOREVER that something like this had happened.

Well today halfway thought my workout it happened again.  I was on a roll with my morning workout (Focus T 25, cardio!) and all of a sudden, everything blinked off.

The power came back, and I went out to walk Misty.  

But by the time we came back, it was all off again.  Apparently we weren't the only ones!

So I showered in the dark.  I got dressed in the dark.  I tried to apply make up by the light of my iPhone flashlight...  (Hey Spousal Equivalent, I think it's time to get fresh batteries in the camping lantern!)  I opened the fridge door for the briefest of moments to get my lunch and off I went.

This must be the secret of getting me to work early.  Cut off my power!
It's actually a bit of a bummer.  I was on a roll!

I weighed in last week and it was AWFUL!  Like a number so high that I nearly burst into tears.  And I did this to myself.  I know I've been slacked!  What did I do?  I wanted to go home and eat 6 cupcakes, but where would that have gotten me?

I made that day Day One of my new food and exercise plan!

Right now I have a healthy, well portioned lunch.  Tonight I have a plan (provided that we have power).

Hell, I ever have gotten my kiddy portion plates down!  I'll use them, damnit!

Tomorrow, provided I have power, it's running and another date with Shaun T!

Suicide Squad (here thar be spoilers)

Seriously, there's spoilers here!

I left the movie with thoughts..

  1. I liked the movie.  It's not stupendous.  But for a DC movie, it's not too bad.
  2. It's got the DC weakness of trying to cram 4 hours on movie in a 2 hour movie.
  3. Because of the MASSIVE amount of characters, some of them got the shaft.  (Captain Boomerang wasn't a character, he was a caricature.  )
  4. The 1 native dude was killed in like 10 minutes.  RIP Slipknot, we hardly knew ya.  (Doing research, the comic book character look not to be Native... but they did cast Adam Beach...)
  5. Bravo with Will Smith playing Deadshot!!  I actually think that was a more fully realized character than Harley Quinn.  Also I don't believe the original character was African American.  It goes to show that you can cast roles like this with the best actor for the job, regardless of the color of their skin.
  6. Nice double-cross on the audience!  We were all thinking that Enchantress was part of the team.  No!!  She's the antagonist!!
  7. But we all know the REAL villain of the movie was Amanda Waller.  
  8. Masterful use of music... rather Guardians of the Galaxy-esque!
  9. Diablo!!!  I LOVED his character!  He was a complete character.  We saw the growth.  We understood his motivation!  We saw him seek his redemption!!  Then he died.  I get that it had to happen that way.... but still.  LOVED this guy!!
  10. Margot Robbie was AMAZING as Harley Quinn!!  Like seriously amazing!!
It wasn't a perfect movie, but it was a fun way to spend a Saturday morning.

Now, let's all start praying that the studio doesn't

f*ck up Wonder Woman!!

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

The role of Tuesday will be played today by Monday

I got to work, all set to face a 6 (yes 6) hour meeting.  I ran into my office, grabbed my note sheet and ran downstairs.

And there was a moving truck there.

Yes, moving and storage showed up and I wasn't warned about it.  So back upstairs I ran, pointed out the things that needed to be hauled away and ran out.

I went to my meeting, which consisted of a series me figuring everything in out in five minutes, then spending 25 minutes waiting for us to move on.

Then I ran back to the office to (unsuccessfully) try to print something out.  We figured out that a professor might have moved with a school computer..

Then I see a big. metal. bookcase.  IN THE HALLWAY!  I had JUST sent items in for surplus!  You can't just take your junk out of your office and leave it in the hallway!!

I inform Gail of this and leave... I have things to do!

Off to Walmart, where I tried to yet again tell them that it wasn't necessary to order me the item that I cancelled.  But their computers were down and I couldn't get my money back today.

Then I sent to Target Optical.  I had an appointment for today at 5pm.

But it's not today.

it's tomorrow.

When my chiropractor appointment is.

I seriously went to my car, shut the door and cussed to loudly that people jumped.

Thankfully the Spousal Equivalent bought dinner.... pizza.  I dropped a piece on my shirt.

I'll be hiding under the bed if you need me.  Apparently Monday is out to get me.
