All the good things

Quote du jour: What doesn't destroy me makes me stronger.
-- Nietzche

Site du jour: Scientists are trying to read our thoughts. Mood rings are never going to come back into fashion.

Good things are happening:
  • I pulled a muscle in my back. Which is good, because now I can't sit in a chair for more than an hour at a time. I have to get up and move around.
  • I missed the connection for my second train this morning. Which is good, because it meant I was stuck at a very cold and windy transit center for half an hour and has to walk around to keep warm. More exercise!
  • So all I need now is one more good thing... Oh yeah. It's Friday! All day!

Exercise du jour: Again, the goal is to take a lunch break, back away from the keyboard and walk. No one is forcing me to work through lunch. Four days in a row!

Way to look on the bright side of things! Hope you have another great lunchtime walk - good job getting those in. :)

p.s. my word verification is "fries" - how did it know that tonight is burger/fries night?!?'s magic.

Love the way you're taking frustrating experiences and turning them into exercise opportunities! Much more practical than beating your head against a wall.

Have fun on your noon walk!

It's a beautifully sunny day outside for once. Much harder to be gloomy!

The song to accompany your post today: Always Look on the Bright Side of Life from Life of Brian

Thanks to you, I'm now whistling a happy tune. (:

Nice way to look on the bright side! Sorry about your back, though... bright side and everything... ouch!

Happy Friday. I made you a cocktail (It's in my left hand) and am now toasting it against the one I made myself (in the right hand). Clink clink. Sorry about your back though. Pain sucks.

Oh no! How bad but how good you made it all.

No worries about the joke from before, totally get it now. The cats though....

Wasn't the sun grand the past few days?! Cold, but nicely bright. Hope your back is easing up on you for the weekend, and yes, walking for lunch break is super great.
