A heart still broken

I’ve had two consecutive abnormal ECG/EKGs. I’m doubt it’s anything, but in the meantime, there’s no training for me until I get an okay from a cardio doc. I’ll have to find something else to occupy my time.

Update: In response to Sid, both ECGs have shown early repolarization (not a big deal from what I’ve gathered online) and probable left ventricle hypertrophy. That might be the result of training, or it might be congenital, or it might be a sign of something else. I’ve ruled out high blood pressure as I’m pretty sure I don’t have high blood pressure. Anyhow, I’m in the process of looking for a doc to try and tell me exactly what it is, if he can.

Whether far or soon

As a freshman in high school, we read A Separate Peace. One of the few lessons I learned from that book is that separate is spelled with one E and two A’s. Pretty sure everyone in the class fucked that one up on the essay despite it being open book (yeah, I know…). Nobody got higher than a B+.

It’s been one of those days. Sliced my finger on a can top. First time ever. Growing up, I was always told that they’re so sharp, but it never happened. I’m trying to clean the kitchen tonight, and oops. Maybe it’ll leave a cool scar. I could use a few more scars… I’m a glutton for pain.

I’m ringing all the warning bells…

My buddy Dan and I have decided to start training together. Which shall be tough, given that we are on opposite sides of the planet. To that end, a training blog. Neither of us are very good at maintaining fitness currently, so we’re hoping this will help and be funny along the way.

It’s just me and I’ll find a way

You can try to say you’ve changed. You can say it, you can believe it, but the simple fact of the matter is that you haven’t.

I thought a gushing of words would spew forth. I haven’t written in forever. But I’m still afraid that my words are, I guess, being twisted by my mind to hurt someone. Or that they are too self-reflective. After all, it’s probably boring to hear about someone else. Especially me. At least, that’s the worry.

If I’m not careful, life will pass me by. I need to create something, to have something to my name. I need…

The Year in Review (Part One of Maybe None)

It’s been a long year. Life has gotten no simpler, if anything life has become more cluttered and complex. Not sure that in the long run it’s a bad thing, but in the short run, things are difficult and it’s hard to see past the seemingly crappy year of 2006. In summary, I:

1. Lost my old job. To be fair, I had fair warning, like 3 months of warning. I had so much warning, in fact, that I was offered my current job the day after I was let go from my old one. In short, from a maintaining employment perspective, things could not have worked out any better. Which leads directly to…

2. I got my new job. I’m not really sure how. Probably luck. I’m working harder now than I probably ever have before. Like any job, I think I both enjoy and get frustrated with my job. For instance, the hours on my current client team are wholly unpredictable. One day, it’s a light enough load that I can leave at 6 or so. The next, I can’t leave until really late. And it’s not as though I know this a day in advance. I often don’t know until 4 or 5 pm day of what time I’ll be able to leave. Needless to say, this put a lot of stress on an already stressed relationship. Which brings us to…

3. Maybe later. In the meantime, happy new year… almost.

Soy un perdedor

I used to think I was really tough. I had a high pain threshhold (and I still do for the most part. Quiet, Nina.). I could push myself through a lot of pain. But my ability to handle the cold this year has been rather suspect. First, I passed out in the cold water. Lately, my hands and feet have been saying cold. This cold snap right now, well, I didn’t think anyone could run.

So when my coworker came in today and told me he ran 13 miles over the weekend, I thought, dammit, I suck.

Random Thoughts

  1. I don’t know what it says about me, but I’d really like to have all my tax forms so I could do my taxes. I’m kind of excited about it. Weird, huh?
  2. I hate it when the little notifier in the Google Talk taskbar icon shows I have mail, and I look in my GMail to find it’s not an email from someone or something that I want to hear from.
  3. Despite the fact that it’s a real feel of 34 outside, I have my window open. Fresh air cancels out nubmfa finbgets. The downside? Coffee gets cold really quickly. I hate hate hate cold coffee.

The bark was stronger than the bite

Driving home last night, I thought of this poem. Late nights and headlights will do that to you:

Woof, woof
What’s that you say girl?
Jimmy’s stuck in the well?
Woof, woof, woof

Back to the farm
We’ll get some rope
And lower Lassie down
To keep Jimmy company.

M*A*S*Hed

The U.S. Army has donated the last of its MASH equipment to the Pakistanis.

Col. Potter: Well, boys, it would be hard to call what we’ve been through fun, but I’m sure glad we went through it together. You boys always managed to give me a good laugh, right when I needed it most. Never forget the time you dropped Winchester’s drawers in the O.R. ‘Course I had to pretend I was mad at you but, inside…
Col. Potter: I was laughin’ to beat all Hell.
Hawkeye: Yeah. I’m laughing just thinking about it.
B.J.: I’d LOVE a good laugh like this.

This Ticket Worth One Transfer

I’m learning to follow through. I have a feeling that in doing so, I’m relieving myself of a problem I’ve carried for a long time. Interestingly, I’ve always been able to follow through when I’m following through on something someone else has asked me for. But when it comes to following through to help myself, I’m a grade-A saboteur. It’s just another thing to work on. I’m not even sure I can get any better. But I can still try. I’m such a sucker.
