06/01/2005: "Wa Hoooo!"
Some positive urges have resulted from what I can only describe as an embarrassing Alias marathon in which I watched 66 episodes in two weekends.
Urge 1. Nothing motivates me more than sitting on the couch for hours eating cheesy poofs while watching a gorgeous, physically fit woman run around kicking the shit out of everyone. Tomorrow Iím starting kickboxing lessons (donít laugh) and Iím hiring a personal trainer. Truth is, I miss being strong and getting sweaty. Hereís the bag I ordered (ps. My dad won several Golden Gloves lightweight boxing trophies so maybe itís in my genes!)
Urge 2. Something in me just shut down about (oh god!) 3 years ago. I basically quit men cold turkey and never looked back. Well, letís just say Iím looking back again!
Urge 3. I never buy new clothes, shoes, make-up, jewelry, or style my hair etc. I donít think a woman has to ďdoll upĒ in order to look good, but itís fun to make a *little* effort.
Urge 4. I used to be adventurous, traveled and lived all over. 3 years ago (not a coincidence) I bought a house and I havenít left the country since. I can take time off in the summer (Iím on a 9 month contract) so Iím going to start planning a big trip for next summer. Iím not sure where to go though, Iím thinking Giza, Hong Kong, Moscow or somewhere tropical and inexpensive where I can rent a sailboat and also go scuba diving again which Iíve never done without a cold water dry suit.
Anyway, how will I bankroll my Alias-inspired makeover? Iíll probably have to get a roommate (groan) but it will be worth it. By next summer a roommate would bring in an extra 6 grand! Thatíll do pig. Thatíll do.
Me in a year (OK, I still won't be tall but...any ideas for my new moniker?)
PS this is supposed to be funny. :laugh:
