I think I may have named the kitten. She escaped twice yesterday (fully escaped, like outside escaped) so I was musing on her escape artist properties. Houdini just didn't seem right somehow and harry doesn't work cause she's a girl but check this. She COMES to harriet. (er yeah I mean comes over and sits beside me not uh has a catgasm)

Harriet. What an odd yet strangely suitable name. Ask me in a week and I'll let you know if it sticks.

My hands are pretty mad at me. I have been climbing three of four times a week for weeks now and while it's helping me make great strides at the gym it's not helping my hands at fucking all. I can count calluses that stick out and are shiny in like 6 places, broken skin in a couple more, rough skin in several others and one huge piece of separated skin with a tiny little hole in it.

I think I'm a little burned out. Don't get me wrong, I'm still going climbing tomorrow because I'm stupid but damm. There's little muscles in my upper body [seriously first i typed shouders and back and then i wanted to add abs and then i was like duh forearms and yeah...] all over the place that are just not speaking to me. They're feeling weak, overused and cranky.

Thing is I did a lot of that in Pilates class with the redhead this am. Seriously you guys the pilates studio i study at (note i said study and not teach) is any man's wet dream unless he likes them voluptuous. There's the blonde who reminds me of michelle pfeiffer if mp had looked that glowing in the last decade (better body i think too since she's been doing bodywork for 14 years). She can levitate I'm telling you.

Then there's the long and gangly brunette with crazy curly hair and the most striking and beautiful face. I think of her as a butterfly and she's a fantastic teacher. So is the blonde by the way. Add in the tiny redhead who is covered in lean muscles and freckles and is so competent it's nearly frightening. Infectious laugh to boot.

There is another teacher there but I hardly know her so it's hard to comment. Seems like she's good too, newer than the other three and now that she isn't all stressed out from training her face has softened and she's beautifulling up too. She's dark and dark and dark (hair/eyes/skin - olive not black) and totally different from the butterfly.

Seriously these women are fantastic and such good teachers with warm and loving souls and so much to give. I'm so lucky to study there.

That said, redhead was in the mood to torture our serratus and other breathing muscles. Along with shoulders. So yeah. I was climbing yesterday and helping my friend move all weekend... and then yeah. So I'm feeling puny.

Funnily enough there's only one thing that I know of that will help with this. Yeah, more exercise. Still and all I'd better be just a little careful, i can't really afford to traumatise my body again.

I've just made a mixed tape for my car (shut up, it's old) because the CBC is broken and i'm tired of all the ones i have AND i have to drive to and from the farm tomorrow. AND I PAID 75 DOLLARS FOR GAS!!! wow. that sucked.

and for those who wonder what's on it (hi sis!)

I am 36 ... but my musical soul is 55 I think, if not older. I don't listen to or buy new music, for the most part, and haven't for years and years.

eh ... guess that so much of the new stuff is such crap ... too much of a pain to try to sort through it all ... might as well just stick with the classic stuff I like so much ..

dzer that's why i go to festivals... there's like 100 bands and i find one or two i love everytime. also listening to CBC gets you exposure to some kinda obscure stuff. no reason not to love the classics but also no reason not to expand the library

rm: 93 honda accord. gets 33mpg but has a 64 litre tank so it takes a lot to fill at 1.30/litre

natalia: yup yup... i'm about to go chop wood for my sis (which i love but that's just weird)

teresa: sounds good to me, get your ass up here!
