I only gained three pounds in the last two weeks. I thought it was going to be at LEAST five. I spent last week being pretty lazy and unmotivated (but still managed to hit the gym four times), but this week I’ve been wallowing upon my deathbed, scarfing down so-called "comfort food" the moment it came within reach of my tentacles. Since the last time I checked, Soft Batch cookies weren’t rockin’ on the nutritional and/or medicinal value front, I’ll take my three pounds and be done with it.
My soccer boys – DC United – play their home opener tonight at RFK. Of course, it’s supposed to rain and, of course, I’m going anyway. I will likely wuss out and hide under the eaves on the 300 level rather than mingle with the riff-raff in my usual waterlogged seats. We’ll see how I’m feeling.
I’m currently obsessed with the Take a Class with Dave & Dave group on Flickr. It’s kind of like a weekly photography scavenger hunt. Unfortuntely last week was my first week, so I wasn’t in a terribly good place to be creative with the themes of mirror/reflection, frozen time & dance. I find that I can be okay with framing shots, but I’m not particularly good at creative interpretation of others’ ideas. We’ll see how I do with this week’s themes: square foot, sky & "abstract". Hopefully I can find a shot at the game tonight that will work for one of them.
Knitting has been sporadic at best. I haven’t picked up the Writhe socks all week and have been fairly devoted to my Hourglass. I finished the first sleeve and cast on the main body. I’m just a smidgen above the turning ridge but it’s rolling along. I think I’ll work on Writhe today b/c with NASCAR back tomorrow, it’ll be the perfect time for brainless round-and-round knitting. I’d show you a picture of the body, but it’s just a weird three-inch wide terra cotta ruffle and not particularly exciting. Deal with it.
