Random Discoveries

Saturday i discovered I have no willpower at parties and noshed WAY too much at my officemate's housewarming party.

Yesterday I rediscovered my latent tendency to overwork myself as "compensation". Got up and realized I had no food for breakfast and since it was such a lovely sunny day (and warm!) I decided to WALK to the grocery store.

Yeah, I think I might be going insane.

Then I realized that the middle school is right across the street from the grocery store and decided that it'd be emptier than the park on a Sunday... so after breakfast I grabbed Spectre and a frisbee and walked back.

One exhausted dog later, I decide to go on a cooking spree.... which involved another carless grocery store run. (The neighbors are probably wondering about me by now)

Three vacuum sealed meals later, I decide to go shopping to reward myself... which entailed MUCH more walking.

By the end of the day, I had rediscovered my calves, that's for sure! I earned more APs for the 20,000 steps I walked (yay for pedometers) than I did for the 30 mins on the tread mill (did I mention I went insane yesterday?)

Today I discover that my boss has no sense of time. I'm seriously thinking of buying him a giant sign that says "WARNING: Dates on calendar are closer than they appear." Long story short, I get to write a bunch of research papers in a real quick hurry. *sigh* Just when I thought I'd get to use up some vacation, I get overscheduled and work up extra hours.

But while I'm hacking through paper writing today, I have this odd sort of "holy WOW" moment. I was listening to Josh (yeah, obvious) but all of a sudden it was like I was hearing him for the first time again. He's really good.

Seriously, Josh Groban is REALLY GOOD.

In fact, that's really the point of this rant. Josh Groban is REALLY really good and Alla Luce del Sole is still amazing. That, and I think I'm going to launch into a week long marathon of listening to anything and everything with his name on it (which entails a ritualistic cursing of my poor timing and inability to get my hands on an internet edition of Closer. Why O why must I suffer without ever hearing the album version of 'My December' and 'You're the Only Place'? *cry*)

Oh well, time to go console myself with a recently rediscovered musical passion ;)
