...which only exemplifies the problem.

To wit, I used to be one of those people whose First World Problems included "if I could just win the lottery, all of my financial woes would be solved and I could do whatever I wanted". Which, while true, isn't really the 'problem' anymore. Realistically if I could win/make/steal the same amount I take home NOW without having to go to work, I could do pretty much do what I want to do, I'd just have the time to actually do it! That, or somebody invents a 25 30 36-hour day... we'll see which happens first.

I have too many hobbies/tasks. I don't want to give up ANY of them. Hell, I've got ones I want to do I haven't even been able to properly begin (hello archery). I've been going to the gym down the street since cardiac rehab ended, which is AWESOME, but sucks up somewhere between 70 and 130 minutes of the days I manage to go. I've not done any real coding in months, and this week (hopefully) I'll reinstall All The Operating Systems and be ready to play Diablo III in my nonexistent free(r) time. And let's not even talk about costuming...

Anyway, lunchtime's a-wasting. Hope your life is as full and exciting as mine, but perhaps not moreso.

(if I can manage 3 more by midnight, that'll be the triple trifecta, right?)

1. Don't hate me, but yesterday I was down to 132# from my high of 150, after being on the South Beach diet for about a month. That's pretty close to where I want to end up (my High School weight was 125, probably a bit low), so some muscle toning will be most of what's left on that front. Yay!

2. Of course, all things in balance: I got a good look at my balding spot yesterday morning with the help of two mirrors, and sheesh, it's...err, "impressive" probably isn't the right word. "Growing", maybe. I'll probably lose another couple of pounds when I cut my hair this summer before Dragon*Con - donating about a foot to Locks of Love, and it helps with a costume I'm working on for D*C. And with the heat of summer, of course. C'est la guerre... maybe I'll shave my head eventually, like that sexy beast [livejournal.com profile] biscuitgod. But this is not that year. I have officially started combing it consciously over that place, though... :/

3. On the gripping hand (possibly literally), I have my first-ever chiropractic appointment for tomorrow afternoon at 5. [livejournal.com profile] kittenpants has had good initial results from a Dr. Duke on Red Bridge, and he's covered by our insurance. Time to find out how fscked up I really am, right? Don't answer that...

Now, time to get some backlogged work done. I'll get to the comments on my previous post sometime tonight, probably.

First, a quiz: Uh huh, tell me another one, Kojak... )

So I'm officially "over 30" now; birthday was quiet, overall, with most of the screaming confined to my neck spasms being worked on. Did I mention I'm getting old? I also made it to work on time this morning, which is really unlikely, all things of the morning considered.

On the plus side, I had my first annual review on Monday, for a job (or at least organization) which may very well carry me through to retirement. Now that'll make you feel old!
