I know I know I’ve been neglecting you, dear reader (s)! Don’t worry, it’s not just you, I’ve been neglecting everything except my job. And just so you know, my job is not at all appreciative of the effort I have been making. My job is sort of an entitled SOB who thinks he deserves my time 6 days a week. He’s all like, I give you free coffee, I deserve your life.
So here I am all the time, for at least a few more weeks.
I did manage to slip out at around 3:30 on Saturday and go to a small party at a friend’s house. That was nice, I’d sort of forgotten what things like friends and sunlight and wine not consumed straight from the bottle while sitting morosely on my sofa for half an hour before going to bed only to wake up and go back to work were like.
No that’s a lie, I always pour my wine into a glass, usually a wine glass, occasionally a juice glass, never a mug or pint glass, oh no never that.
Also I have been doing Kundalini Yoga in the mornings, using a set of DVDs I ordered when I finally realised how deeply unlikely it was that I would make it back to the Bikram Yoga Studio after working at least 9.5 hours everyday during the week and then 6 hours on Saturdays. So I’m waking up early and opening the hell out of my chakras.
This is probably not how you’re supposed to talk about your chakras but i don’t care. This week I’m working on the 1st chakra, which, according to my personal dvd instructor Maya Fiennes, is the chakra in charge of courage. Next week creativity. The whole series involves chanting which makes me laugh and therefore helps me feel less serious and dour about the act of exercising. Which is good.
Wanna know what else is good? Last week I touched the floor without bending my knees. This is actually fucking remarkable given the state of my lower back. Please be amazed.
But now I must return to the work. Wanna know my newest coping mechanism? Turning all unreasonable requests into LOL Cat speak eg: o! Hai! We can has 30 drawrz arkivd an scand by april 23? LOLZ!1!1!
It doesn’t change the unreasonable request, but it does make me think of kittens!
