Seven Degrees, 7.2% and Snickers
It was seven degrees this morning when I dropped B-Man at Day Care. Freaking SEVEN! I spent most of the morning shivering at my very unprivate "wall way" non cubical desk. I think the freaking AC was on!! The part of the office I work in now has some seriously big boned folks in it. I don't think they noticed. It wasn't until lunch when I heated up some hot soup and a couple cups of insta-choco-java that I finally stopped shivering, and my nipples stopped being fully erect.
I got the straight poop on that potential vacation day debacle that came down from some tie wearing goofs last week. Looks like I don't have anything to worry about, since the tie wearing non-goof that call the shots in my division says that he cares very little how I divide my 4 weeks up. So, potential race scheduling conflicts have been averted.
Another work day bonus was getting a case of Dogfish Head Indian Brown (AKA- Best Beer In The World) from the reps I work for. Thanks chickies! The road into my heart is indeed paved with empty bottles of fine 7.2% ABV craft brewed beverages. Then a dude in the office gave me a box of whole wheat pasta for doing a couple "emergency" scans for him last week. Beer and whole wheat pasta? It's like they're begging me to destroy the bathroom. I WILL do it too. My colon is like a loaded weapon!
Once home I was greeted with a litle "thank you" care package from my man Metro. It was a thank you for pointing him in the general direction of some fine folks up in Maine. Metro hooked me up with a stash of Snickers Charged Bars. A SWEET hook up since I can't seem to find the bars up here anymore. Thanks Metro! Funny, I never thought I would say "Metro sent me a stash" and be talking about Snickers bars!! HA!
Once on the trainer I put thoughts of seven degrees, -22 wind chills, craft brews, and Snickers out of my mind as I go a nice sweat on and threw down a nice workout on the trainer. One workout closer to 2009 Race Shape! FOCUS MAHOKEY! FOCUS!!
7.5 hours of crap-ola left in 2008 for me. Then I can turn my attention to spending time with Wifey, B-Man, those yet to be chilled Indian Browns and a Holiday with friends and family.
