well, i guess if you say so i'll have to pack my things and go

Man, Ray Charles. That's all.

John Henry Holliday is sick of these time-travelling assholes. And he gave me 2000 words today, and the entirety of the plot. Now I just have to do it justice.

A kind of wonderful thing happened today. When I went in to water the plants in the only decent window in this house (which is in the pantry: I don't know either) I discovered that my Cattleya had bloomed for the first time ever. I've had it for four years: I have only just discovered that it's fuchsia and yellow!

This one is closest to the actual color, but still too blue:

And this one shows the plant better:

In other news, so far today I have run 5 kilometers, climbed ten routes, and I am about to do yoga.  I am getting off this plateau if it kills me.

If I manage to hit my goal weight, however, the evidence is starting to accumulate that I am going to be an absolute fucking monster on overhangs. They're already significantly easier--and if the plan is working, I should be building muscle while I lose that other stuff.

I'm looking forward to that.


Is beautimous!
In the winter.
Ray Charles, indeed.

I've always felt a little proprietary about him...when I was born my mother told people not to squander their money on dead flowers, but to send her Ray Charles records instead. As a result, his music was a major part of the soundtrack of my childhood. (So was the soundtrack of Hair, which meant that by age 4 I could quote Shakespeare, recite the names of great Italian movie directors, and knew what cunnilingus was.)
Your mom = Class act.
W00t! Go you! You'll be awesome. (Well, you're already awesome. You'll be awesomer. Yes, it's a word now.)
That is just **'n amazingly gorgeousful!
What is the plan? If there's a way to lose Other Stuff while still building muscle, I want to sign up. For the same reason - climbing!
read back along the project: less of me tag.
