Apes don't read philosophy.

Worked out again this morning, hooray! Had to meet my trainer, so that's motivation, can't not show up. Have only one more session with him next week and then I guess it's up to me to motivate my own ass.

Worked on my arms this morning--free weights and everything! I find the free weights by far the most intimidating part of the gym. A) I barely know what I'm doing B) I'm a tiny little girl and nearly everyone over there is a giant male. But I do love them--I can feel the most benefit from them. So bit by bit, as I keep doing it, I feel a little less like a chode.

Got my first birthday present! (Ok, second. The first was my laptop from D, which I got back in May...this thing has totally saved my sanity at work. Plus when the DVD players fuck up at home, this little guy gets me through. It was even able to salvage the most butchered episodes of 24). Anyhoo.

Emily sent me a book! I was actually expecting a book I had ordered myself, so I rip it open and I'm all, "Wtf? They sent me THE WRONG BOOK!"

Luckily, my brain kicked in just as I sat down at the computer to see if I had somehow ordered the wrong book (I can be kinda special that way, on occasion). The title got me to thinkin', and I brilliantly looked at the invoice. Der! Anyway, it looks like a great book and she herself was really impressed with it.

Oh, and in my dream last night I was going to be in Japan at the same time I needed to be in class to pick up some papers. Luckily, Jensen Ackles said he would go for me. And I was thanking him and he told me for the first time that he loved me. (Apparently he was my boyfriend). So I guess that was just my birthday present to myself.

Going to sneak out of work a little early today to hit home for dinner with my parents and Alex...been kinda slow at work so that should be fairly easy.

And my voice teacher found Easy Silence without vocals, woo hoo! But actually, that scares the shit out of me. It's MUCH EASIER to sing along with Natalie, dontcha know. FAR less painful. If it weren't at 9 in the AM, I would almost need to have a little liquid confidence beforehand...
