One Day Blog Silence

*This* guy is having a crappy day

Wow. Imagine if a mistake you made at work resulted in collapsing a Bay Area freeway.
The silver lining here is that it didn’t happen during commute time.

Ah, memories

This afternoon I had to visit one of our customers. This customer happens to be the same company where an ex-boyfriend of mine worked. Actually, I think he still works for the company, but at a different location.

Driving through the campus evoked memories I had long since repressed.

Tell me what to read

I need a book. I just finished The Mercy of Thin Air last night. I liked it. A lot. And I recommend it. Before that I read Nineteen Minutes and My Sister’s Keeper, both by Jodi Picoult. I love the way Ms. Picoult writes, and her subject matter varies with each book. I also enjoyed loved Beach Glass, and was totally sucked in to the Memory Keeper’s Daughter.

Now I need another book to like. I’m open to almost anything, except something that would be filed under “romance,” especially one that has someone resembling Fabio adorning its cover. I like suspense. Horror is fine, but by suspense I mean it keeps my interest. Freaky is good too. I read Stiff years ago, and as odd as the subject matter was, I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. It’s one of those books that just sticks in my mind, like The Lovely Bones did. I love to be entertained by a book, (and apparently I lean toward the more morbid subject matter). I can’t stop turning the pages, but at the same time I don’t want to reach the last page.

I have several unread books on my shelf, but none of them are inspiring me right now. I want this next book to be so good I want to call in sick and read. All day.

So, what do you recommend I read next?

Pay the piper

Yesterday was not a good day. Work was hectic and I was pulled in too many different directions. By the end of the day I was feeling like too many things were out of my control. I needed to blow off some steam. I thought about going to the gym and working out my aggressions on the elliptical, but I had already had a session with my personal trainer at 5:30 that morning. I didn’t want to overdo it, you know. I considered calming down with a beer or four. But then I’d be sure to awaken with a headache this morning, and miss my workout. You see, for the last month or so, I have eaten healthy to the point of being a boring dining companion. At the suggestion of my trainer, I have learned to tolerate protein shakes after my workouts, and eat more protein throughout the day. Carbs? Only before 3 pm (metabolism slows in the afternoon). I gave up sugary sweets over a month ago, and am doing quite well with that. I usually don’t even miss it. The fact that I plan to be a fabulous looking bride in (holyshit!) 44 days has much to do with this new way of life.

But one crappy day, and I discover a way of eating that is worse than what I was doing before I started this transformation.
