Well not really

Words words everywhere
In my profession too, there are amazing and rocket-scientist-intelligent people who think about what we do nearly 24X7. A great many of them have fascinating blogs that I'm glad when I stumble across, yet don't have the time to devote to a full reading. I follow one of them, but rarely read. His work is the kind that makes your head explode, but even when I don't understand what I'm reading, his style is so approachable that I do anyway. Every once in a while, I'll scan through a posting just to see what's on his mind. It's always great stuff.
Then there are books. I've way outgrown the two bookshelves I have. The books piled and tossed around lend to the "amateur hoarder" motif of my office. Of course, this isn't "all". I have cookbooks in the kitchen, books in the living room, books on my dresser, books on my nightstand, books (special ones, at that) under my bed. I want more. There's always a book I want. An exceptionally well-read friend sent me a list I've barely touched. If I asked for that list again, I'm sure it would be twice what it was as his reading and movie watching has continued at a good pace and mine has not.
Maybe reading later. Workout, chores, football for today.

I really like the ab workout in the 10 Minute Solution Kickbox Bootcamp. Just when you really start to get tired of a move, you switch to something else. I feel constantly challenged and really dig that. I'm normally a wuss when it comes to abs and will use nearly any excuse to not work them. If it weren't NFL time, I think I would do the workout again. Yeah, nuts for me to be saying.
If I can get rid of some of my congestion it will soon be time to switch back to Ms. JM. I like her workouts, but I'm not as bouncy as she is. I think she's part Tigger; I'm not.

So I go to new store. Sure enough, they have steel cut oats...for $5.89. SIX dollars for steel cut oats. You can buy them at a store KNOWN for their super high prices (their nickname rhymes with mole haycheck) for $1 a pound. I do love my oats, but there is no way in terra firma that I'm paying that for them. Expensive store, I'll see you after work tomorrow for my favorite breakfast bargain.
On the upside, pomegranates are in. The early ones I bought could be a bit riper, but I'll take them.

If I chose a literary marking, what would I choose? Shakespeare? And which? Sonnet, play? Faulkner? Wilde? Jong? AS Byatt? Which brings the question...I've met her. She's a proper British lady. Wonder what she'd think about her works being inked on one's body? I'm not sure if she'd be impressed, offended or non-plussed. Allende? Heinlein? He does have some really good zingers. My faves are probably NSFTattoo-ing.

My hair is naturally unruly and since I have no talent for fixing it, I generally don't like looks that require a lot of effort. Unfortunately, most hairstyle books have styles done by professionals who have spent hours on the do. I have neither that much skill or time every day. So with a little liquid courage, I got layers and have actually let it dry and be naturally unruly for over a week. I've gotten lots of compliments, even from people who have no reason to lie to me about how it looks, so I'm starting to think it's OK. Maybe.....
