~ I'm not telling you this one. When I use lyrics from new/obscure songs, I'll educate you. Songs like this, that are older than most of my readers, you have to guess. At the end of the year, the person w/ the most right guesses will get... something.
I took my entire CD collection to work today, as I was getting sick of listening to the same cds over and over, no matter how good they are. Listened to the "Once More With Feeling" CD, and had very inappropriate workday thoughts about Giles and Spike. Then I listened to Newsies and had inappropriate thoughts about Christian Bale.*edit: They were also inappropriate thoughts to be having before 9 AM.
Ok, this in random, but who invented the butterfly stroke? It's like the least efficient swimming storke in the world. What is it good for aside from racing? Nothing, as far as I can tell. It's energy intensive and doesn't get you nearly as far as you should go for that much energy. (Which is a good way to define inefficient). (I'm watching the Olympics, if you couldn't guess) The backstroke, now that's a quality stroke (plus now it's the men, and althetic boys w/o shirts. mmmm And they don't wear those tiny speedos anymore, which I'm a fan of.)
Anyway, work is boring and dull, but goes by quickly. I ennabled the sound card on the computer last week and moved the CPU so that I can put CDs in it more easily and so that the headphones reach from the computer to my head. Typing in numbers and updating account info isn't very concentration intense, but when you listen to good music, it's suprising how much you get done and how quickly the day passes. And using the comp. means I'm not eating batteries up like crazy. So that's that.
After work, I went to the gym. It was time for my monthly weight/measurement check. I haven't lost any weight, but I have supposedly lost inches (which I believe, I can see/feel it). But, my bust has apparently grown in the two months I've been going to Curves. I don't need that to grow. It's probably got to do w/ building pec muscles and maybe not sagging enough and slight differences in placement of the tape and body parts (different bras and whatnot) but still. Of course, I haven't been eating well, and I've missed a bunch of workouts lately b/c of the apt. hunting. So, whatever.
Then, after dinner, Dad and I went shopping. I got a bed in a bag set, sheets (soooo soft, I want clothes made out of them) lamps, towels, and a mattress pad. With the excception of the mattress pad, everything is of course, in shades of blue. The towels and one set of sheets are being washed as we speak, and then will be packed away to go onto the new bed.
Speaking of beds, the boy's living arrangements in Italy apparently don't allow overnight guests. Which I kinda get, but that's annoying, a) b/c they're adults and b) b/c now I can't crash at his place if/when I go visit. Oh well. We'l figure something out....
I think that's it for now. Just watching the Olympics and hanging out.
Mild revision on the butterfly. I hate swimming it, and think it's useless, but I think that the fact that the camera moves while the swimmers move makes it look even less efficient than it is, b/c you don't see how much progress each stroke makes. And it's partly based on the way dolphins swim, and they're mammals and aqautic, so copying them should make sense... Whatever.
</rant> One last rant. From a Budweiser commercial. Why in the name of all that is logical and holy would you drink Budweiser (American Budweiser) while in Europe? Why pay for what is imported beer over there, where they actually make good beer to drink lousy American beer, and advertise to everyone that you are a stupid American w/ no taste? Half the point of Europe is the good alchohol that is cheaper than soda. The other half is the cool art/architecture/history and whatnot. And parts are the awesome chocolate and the good public transit. Ok. </rant>
