I woke up at ten minutes after noon—surprised—as I had set my alarm for noon. It turns out I had set the time, but not actually turned the alarm on.
I started my workout at around 3:50, and Joe arrived around 20 minutes later. There was no word from Kevin (av8rdude) on Twitter, but I knew he was going to be having a late Friday night out, so no worries.
One guy from the free weights area kept coming over to the fence between that area and the cardio area, where the TVs are, to check on the progress of the Duke basketball game (some kind of finals are going on right now). I wondered, "If you're so interested in this game, why on earth did you chose now to work out? I mean the gym opened at 7AM today, and it doesn't close until 7PM." I'm just saying...
Fortunately for me, he was incredibly easy on the eyes—both in looks and build. I'm just saying (again)...
I listened to a podcast of The Story. The episode was called Healing Raspberri Rose, about:
|DeVondia Roseborough found out she was HIV+ in December 2003. Like many of the women she's since met, she was abused as a girl and learned to seek security in sexual relationships with men.|
Although an episode with AIDS nearly killed her, DeVondia is healthy now and speaking frankly with young women in her community—including her own teenage daughters—about what they should do to avoid HIV.
Today's workout statistics:
Upon leaving the gym, I stopped at the Harris Teeter next door, and spent about $75 on groceries. I thought I'd left the half of my key chain with my VIC card on it in my car (but as it turned out, it was in my other pocket), so I gave the cashier my phone number instead.
"Mr. Bloomington?" she asked after keying it in and looking at the screen.
"Uh, no." I repeated my phone number.
She said, "Yep, that's what I put in. Oh well."
"Oh well," I echoed. I guess the Bloomingtons will be getting some coupons "especially for them" for things they never buy.
Once home, I opened the windows in my house, which I rarely, rarely do, but it was such a glorious day, and I felt so good after working out, that I just had to do it.
I had a killer salad for dinner: lettuce, cucumbers, onions, pineapples, raisins, cheddar cheese, and ham. Yum, yum, yum!
I edited all night long, and finally finished this book. OMG. I can't even begin to articulate the tediousness of it all.
