I Guess I'm Just Not That Cruel.  
So, I was going to make a post that said - "Misha Collins and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are going to be in a movie together!" - And then put a LJ cut and say, "Click here for more info" - and then when you clicked it, it was going to say, "Seriously, it's April 1st. I can't believe you bitches fell for that."

But then I thought, "If someone did that to me, I would hire someone to hack their LJ account, find out where they live, and then there would be blood shed and bonfires."

I guess I just love you all too much. That's why I didn't do it. Not because as I was making that post, I realized all of my icons had been declared invalid and I was all, "WHAT?!" and ran around until I realized my credit card expired in the middle of March and I had forgotten to update with my new one. Oops. All fixed now.


I have been not so great about it the last year or so. Sporadic is a word that comes to mind. The last thing that stopped me up was my hips and shoulder bothering me. I have started back up again, but the hip guy can't see me until April 21st, so until then I am not doing anything that puts any strain on my hips - just side leg lifts and crunches. I am back to doing my full arm exercises, but with less weight than usual.

I am trying to do better. I worked out four days last week and if I do it again tomorrow, it will be four days this week. Two weeks back at it and that's not bad. It is about an hour long workout and I even managed to double my number of crunches in two weeks. Though it seems to miss the point, because the more I work out, the more I crave Mountain Dew - must be the sugar. I find it discouraging to do so many crunches and then cave and drink a soda. /shrug/ Most days I do pretty good on both fronts.

My shoulder stills hurts but it is better than it was. I woke up with my sister's cat laying across my arm, shoving it up in a weird position the other day. I had been there for at least an hour. I removed him and went to shake out my shoulder kink and suddenly something popped and slipped into place. Since then my arm has been like a throbbing ache, but no more sharp catching pain. Remarkably better. I keep trying to imitate the position Pippin had me in, but I can't. Whatever it was, he should charge for that shit. I hear chiropractors make a buttload of money.

I have been bad about keeping up on my to-do-list this week. I keep getting distracted by fics that I don't have time to be reading. I'm currently reading an Angel (the tv show) post-apocalypse AU from Wesley's POV. It is captivating. I did just write 1,000 words of fic though, so yay that!

I had a horrible dream last night where I was a freshman in high school and I was at some horrible school dance and Casey Affleck, the cool senior with a motorcycle, was there. He called me over and all my friends were in a twitter about it. There was flirting and a lot of me admiring his motorcycle and then A CAR FELL OUT OF THE SKY AND CRUSHED HIM TO DEATH! It was not a good dream. Well, it was - he wanted to give me a ride on his bike - but then he got crushed like a cartoon, so...yeah. And all I could think was, "I wonder if Bones and Booth will investigate this. It seems like their kind of case."

They say dreams shed light on our subconscious and help us work through our stresses. All mine ever say about me is that I watch too much TV and spend way to much time being a FanGirl.

I'M GOING TO SEE SOURCE CODE TOMORROW!! Because Jake is cute. It looks entertaining. And my sister said we were. And I am just that easy.

Also, I may have something for you this weekend, but I have told myself I must finish filing away my 9 months worth of mail before I can make crazy posts.

Enjoy your weekend!

That's a lie. My dreams stress me more than my RL. One horror after another.

That's no good, dude. I hate the kind of dreams that leave you more exhausted than if you had just stayed awake.

I mean, that car crushing Casey Affleck to death was pretty upsetting - but worse was the dream I had a few nights after that. I was leading a resistance team against the invasion of aliens (with Dr. Sweets from "Bones" and Phyllis from "The Office"). And the aliens had those machine things from the movie "War of the Worlds" that usually suck up people and use them to fuel their machines. Only in my dream, the Resistance and I realized they were using kittens to fuel their machines and so we were running around scooping up cats to save them. I had a plastic grocery bag and I was throwing kittens into it and...well, it was an awful dream.

LOLOLOL
That would've been a fantastic April Fool’s joke. Extremely devastatingly hurtful, but funny all the same.

Eurghhh :( reading about you exercising made me so guilty because despite promising myself, my family, my friends, the world etc that I would start exercising regularly (or at all) I have done absolutely none. :/ Minimal is a word that comes to mind.
It's really really bad. So good work on getting that much done. seriously, that's impressive (or maybe it is just to me...lol)

I love your dreams. They’re great. :D
I forget all my epic dreams, or else they are way too confusing to explain via text and require epic amounts of gesturing and weird faces and noises. (like most of my stories, much to the amusement of my friends who often mock me for it (OT I accidently typed 'stroke' instead of 'strike' just then :S evidently I also have been reading too much fic and not doing productive stuff....

It's a fantasy I have - JDM and Misha in a movie together. Doesn't even have to be an X-rated movie. ;) But there are a few people on my Flist who would probably have a brain aneruism over it - and I just like you all too much to accidently kill any of you.

I have been having serious issues with lasting more than a few weeks at a time with my exercising routine. Hopefully my goal of getting in a little better shape for summer will help motivate me (so I can wear some baby doll tees this summer - even though I am about ten years too old for that look, lol). My suggestion is always to pick a tv show that you have been meaning to rewatch and put on one episode each time you work out. The urge to watch the next episode will get you working out. Or download a podfic and only let yourself listen to it while you workout. The exercises themselves don't really give me motivation, but I want to find out what happens next on One Tree Hill, so I get out my weights!

hahaha - this is how my sister tells all her stories too. She likes to reenact whatever is happening on her tv show with action sequences (you should see her reenact when Morgan from Criminal Minds kicks in a door). lol

LMAO. Your mind is in the gutter, bb!

It is so difficult to maintain enthusiasm for exercising. If I am properly motivated, I can do it, but if I don't have a specific goal I am working toward.... It is always easier for me to eat carefully, though at my age, dieting is not enough. I have no real notio what I'll be doing while in Haiti, but I have a feeling it might be a lot of digging, so I am going to try to use that as a motivator to get stronger.

At least you are doing what you can. If my mom's arthritis has taught me anything, being stronger and thinner can make a major difference in how bad the pain gets. Once she started gaining weight and getting weaker, the pain made it so much harder for her exercise, and now she is in a vicious cycle.

-- short break while I went and climbed my stairs 10 times because I felt guilty for sitting at my computer for so long and now my knee hurts. wtf? --

Anyway, I hope the "hip guy" gives you some good news.

Last year, when my docs were planning on doing a knee replacement for me, I worked out like three hours a day to get the rest of my body as strong as I could beforehand. They decided not to do the surgery and the letdown of that was so much that I just haven't really felt motivated since. Getting ready for summer clothes doesn't quite motivate me the way I need.

I have no real notio what I'll be doing while in Haiti, but I have a feeling it might be a lot of digging, so I am going to try to use that as a motivator to get stronger.

Yeah, I would imagine that digging would be involved. And heavy lifting. Getting in shape for Misha Matt Haiti is def a good idea. :)

If my mom's arthritis has taught me anything, being stronger and thinner can make a major difference in how bad the pain gets.

I spent so many years being forced to do physical therapy that as soon as I was an adult, I quit. I wish now that I hadn't. Because since I started back and got on a more regular exercise routine, the difference with my arthritis has been amazing. I was a petulant teenager, I guess dropping therapy wasn't the worse choice I made at age 20. :) On the upside, I am within my acceptable weight bracket for my height - on the high end, but still within the bracket.

I love you taking a break from typing this reply to workout. :)

Anyway, I hope the "hip guy" gives you some good news.

I know they will have to redo my hip replacements at some point, but I was hoping to get 3 to 5 more years out of them. Plus, I don't really want to spend my summer in therapy rehab. I guess I'll know soon enough. Thanks!

That is one hell of a weird dream O.o

Oh! The guilt! I'm feeling it! You can manage to exercise, why can't I? I keep saying I'm going to and then, nothing. If thinking about it worked, I'd be so buff.

Glad your shoulder is doing better, and hope the hip guy can give you some good news.

The other night I dreamed that I was making out with Dr. Sweets from "Bones" and then the aliens invaded and then we had to save all the kittens from the aliens. It was way more complicated than that, but the point is...why did the aliens invade while I was making out with Dr. Sweets? Also, why was I making out with Dr. Sweets?

You can manage to exercise, why can't I?

Well, the answer to your question is probably that I don't have a job. Or a kid. So, my time is slightly freer than yours. If that makes you feel any better, dude. :)

Glad your shoulder is doing better, and hope the hip guy can give you some good news.

Thanks! I hope the hip guy gives me good news too. Eventually I will have to do something with my hips, but I wouldn't mind putting it off for a few more years. At least, could I not use up the three months of decent summer weather we have here by being stuck inside recovering from surgery - that would be great. If I can put it off until like October at least. I will know soon enough.

and then we had to save all the kittens from the aliens Well, of course! Saving the kittens is very important. :D

answer to your question is . . . don't have a job. Or a kid. So, my time is slightly freer than yours. If that makes you feel any better Actually it does :) Way better than my answer of just being lazy!

I will keep a good thought for you and the hip consult, bb.
