i can hardly remember what has passed since last night! this morning i barely made it home alive - my eyes closed a few times while on the beltway. i was forcing myself to scream and cough and sing along with the radio and i had the window down and i was smoking to keep myself awake. i wish there was a dive hotel right near work i could hole up in on days like yesterday. i turned in my vacany notice at the apartment, and ran into my next door neighbors moving out; it's sad, except that i'm moving out next month anyways. i liked the next door neighbors because A) their daughter was so nice and always complimented what i was wearing with a look of awe on her face and B) i strongly suspected they were lesbians. oh well! i'll never see them again. on the plus side, i'll never hear their poor tiny noisy white dog again, either.

i got to book club vaguely on time but didn't get to finish the last 20 pages of the book (che guevara, the motorcycle diaries). for some reason, i couldn't get engaged in it. at least it prompted me to get myself a quickie lesson in south american history. it was a small meeting and a relatively short discussion, and mandy had gone out of her way to make things really nice for us. the surprising part was that no one had brought suggestions for next month, so we have to go soliciting. dang.

everyone seems in good spirits here at work tonight. i am glad, but time is passing really, really slowly and while i had a really good ride in, where i was feeling good and energetic and full of ideas about how to improve my life, i am starting to fade and it's not even 3am.

i haven't heard from jack today, i hope he's okay.
also, is kickboxing stupid?

The only human being for whom it wouldn't be stupid to get into kickboxing would be Lloyd Dobbler, and since he's not a real person, he doesn't count.

So, uh, yes, kickboxing is definitely stupid.

So what organized kicking-people activity should I get into...... hrmmmm.....

Okay. I may need to change my mind on this.

Kickboxing = a good preperatory activity for kicking people. ;)

Sorry about the harshness of that first comment, BTW...it was late. I was tired. My brain was not functioning. In other words, I totally didn't mean to sound insulting. Ack.

i didn't think it was harsh! i want your real opinion harsh or not, anyways. :)

Actually, kick boxing is good exercise and can be fun. I'd suggest some other cool martial art if you think kick boxing is silly. Hell, watch ESPN and watch a match and see if you think it's stupid.

kick boxing looks like more fun that some of the other junk because you get to bounce around.

really, what i want to know is, what doesn't cost 253857629857643 dollars to get into :P

Walking and running? =)

Not that i stuck with my walking thing for long.

By the way, I forgot to mention this in person last night, but if we can figure out where the heck to put it I have a recumbent stationary bike that we can both use. Personally I find it boring as hell, but in the winter when you can't do anything outside, it's okay. =)

walking and running are fine, but i want to incorporate fighting and punching and kicking. uh... no reason. ;) but seriously, i feel like it might be more fun if i went to a class or something. and more discipline. it's just an idea.

as far as the stationary bike is concerned, that is cool. we'll have to sort out where it goes when we get there. i want the regular bike to ride over to telf's or to giant.

Kickboxing is not stupid.
Oct. 2nd, 2002 12:13 am (UTC)
I don't think so either, but I wonder if other people do. I'm way too concious of what other people think most of the time.
Oct. 2nd, 2002 08:56 am (UTC)
Well, you already know how I feel about that. I say go for it.

I think I'd probably recommend a kick-oriented martial art, such as Tae Kwon Do, over some goofy cardio-kickboxing thing. Part of this is because a real martial art involves progress and a real sense of achievement, whereas cardio-kickboxing involves, uh, kicking a lot.

I want BOTH kicking alot AND progress and a real sense of achievement. :) I went to one kickboxing class one time, but I didn't like the instructor, plus, he wanted like 700 bucks up front for the year or something. OUCH.
