how difficult it is...

....

A new lump (part of this strange thing called panniculitis) on my hip, and the attendant pain, put a stop to any form of exercise for nearly two weeks now...and HOW difficult it is to get the old body going again!

Mind: Well, you  lazy lump of lard, are we going swimming or not?
Body: Can't you see that it is raining?
M: It WAS raining...yesterday. Today it LOOKS as if it might rain....and it might not.
B: But it might....
M: You know perfectly well that once you get into the pool you like it and you actually grin all over your face while doing the backstroke in the rain.
B: Yes, but...
M: Butt is right, also tummy. UP!
B: Tomorrow, def-in-ite-ly tomorrow...
M: That's what you said yesterday.
B: I am consistent!
M: Oh yeah...you have been pretty consistent with those five-star restaurant meals, wedding feasts, and midnight snacks...
B: But I am generally careful what I eat...
M: You want to be like your mother and spend your time in and out of the hospital?
B: That was an unfair crack.
M: That's why you exercise...I hope you don't think that regular exercise is going to make you look like one of those gorgeous starlets...you will be a fit geriatric, that's more than enough.
B: That was an unfair-er crack. Sob!
M: Sob is right. SOB stands for...no, not that, I couldn't call you Son..... Stop Occupying Beanbag! GO swimming, NOW!

Well, I think, today, finally, Mind is winning...see you lot after my swim....

Interesting to read through this

Yes, while holding some opinions or views, it is essential not to feel that other opinions are somehow not valid, or bad in some way, or ridiculous...that would make one as narrow-minded as the holder of the "other" opinion...

How easy the Internet makes it...

I LOVE both the audio, video and lyrics of this song by Madonna (very un-"Madonna" like at the time):

Years ago, I overtaped something over the video recording and hunted high and low...now all I need to do is to google (yes, it has become a generic verb now, thaths!) for it and there it is, the haunting images, the haunting words, the lovely music...

Well, apparently Madonna stole the video from Boy George, who then could sing, "This used to be my video..."...but I think her version is far better.

What a great thing the Internet is!

Can't stop laughing!

Missed several friends' posts on 7th October, for some reason...and decided to take the meme on swatisani's LJ...and here's what I got:

deponti's LJ stalker is mewpsych!
mewpsych is stalking you because they heard you are awesome in bed, and they want to find out. They are also in jail for murder!
