Dentist Appointment



Today, I have a dental appointment this afternoon, so I am trying to make up the time by working very diligently in my office and laboratory to try to get things to good end points for some relaxation time by the end of the week if at all possible.  Final examinations are on-going, of course. 

I am still dealing with a case of meloncholy at the moment, but I am trying to do the only thing that has been somewhat reliable in the past in helping me get through and sometimes even dissipate these moods..... keeping very busy and trying to bump up exercise.  I was on the road at 5:15am this morning, and it was very pleasant walking, even though I heard a bit later that the temperature today while I was out was only 9 degrees.  The nice part was that all the roadways and sidewalks were clear of ice my whole route.  I was able to walk at a faster, more beneficial pace.  At the gym, I decided to add two additional components to my workout  (which is normally upper body weight lifting for tone, and running/jogging on the indoor  track since it is not really safe enough most days to run/jog outside this time of year).  I added some time on what is called a BOSU ball (see the image of the woman above) training.  These sorts of exercise are designed to build core tone and improve balance and body posture.  What I did was similar to what the woman did, but I held onto a 16 pound "medicine ball" and kept moving the ball all around me while trying to maintain balance on the BOSU contraption.  It may sound easy, but I was not particularly adept at it.  I did keep at it for 20 minutes, and I could feel that I have used some core muscles in new ways as a result. 

Pipe cravings are at the low to low-moderate stage thus far today, so I am having a relatively easier time with that aspect of trying to make myself into the person I want to become as well.

I hate dentists, and my teeth hated me, after years of putting money in them I got rid of those bastards and I'm healthier because of it.

If Final examinations are on-going why in the hell are they called Finals?

You're doing great on the smoking, treat yourself to some nookie (or a blow job), it'll cheer you up.

I've never seen the point in blow jobs myself but as the president of the local chapter of Masturbaters Anonymous I think it's my duty to mention them at times. :-)
