1. happy birthday nikki!
it’s my mother-in-law’s birthday today and dev’s brother, collin, and his friend heather are staying with us, so we skype called her and sang to her. in pseudo costume of course.
of note is how i matched my headband to my instrument. i do what i can.
so we didn’t quite manage our third date with tony horton yesterday. unfortunately dev’s right arm is in pain from over-exertion on day one and i could barely walk after trying to keep up with the one-legged man yesterday. so together we are a pair of sad p90x victims. we spent the day wallowing around in our misery. we sat in front of our computers and joked about doing the ‘abs and core’ dvd knowing full well we’d rather have someone squeeze fresh lemon juice into our eyes than endure more tony horton. we refused to get changed out of anything that didn’t have an elastic waistband and that evening told our friends about the atrocities we’d endured.
however, today is a new day. and so we will probably try another dvd from the p90x torture series.
it is funny how many people sent me messages defending tony horton and p90x. and don’t get me wrong, i’m so glad it works for some people and i’m thrilled that some of you have stockholm syndrome are totally charmed by mr. horton.
3. upcoming adventures
we just booked our internal flights in south-east asia. our plans include seeing these places in person. we may, or may not, come back:
angkor wat, cambodia:
sa pa, vietnam:
halong bay, vietnam:
4. rob delaney
if you don’t follow him on twitter, you’re missing out. yes, he’s crass and over-the-top. but he’s also funny and humor trumps the other two. his article in vice magazine about becoming a dad is a good litmus test. if you think this is brilliant, then you should get more rob delaney in your life. if you’re insulted, then he’s not the guy for you.
5. i don’t really have something for item 5.
i just have a weird thing against lists that are even numbered. except lists of 10 or over.
