Butt Massage

Today is the day we go live with one of our projects. Weeks and weeks of meetings, long hours, conference calls etc... all boils down to today.

After a solid week of headaches and terrible lower back pain, I decided to book myself a 90 minute massage last night.

The masseuse was able to locate the source of all my lower back ache - it's in my butt. Apparently, I have a pain in the ass. Anyways, she probably spent about 30 minutes massaging various parts of my butt. And did it ever hurt.

Here's how the conversation went:

Masseuse: "Wow, it's really tight here..."
Me: *grunt*
Masseuse: "Yup, really tight. You could say you have a tight ...ass"
Me: Har har.
Masseues: "Sorry, massage humor. I guess you hold all your stress and tension in your bum." *presses down hard*
Me: Owie.

Great. My ass is a conduit for stress and tension. And here's the thing about getting your butt massaged. It's hard to relax - completely. For obvious reasons.

For the record, it did help a lot with the lower back pain.

Spring Resolutions!

Spring is like New Years – I get weird urges to clean and start fresh!

Time for...

Spring Cleaning. Every year I tell myself I'm gonna go Martha – do a complete rehaul of every drawer, cupboard and closet.

It could happen. Yesterday, I had a labeling and shredding orgy. My little pocket label maker and I spent about 4 hours labeling and sorting a backlog of bills, letters and receipts. And when I mean backlog – I mean backlog – stuff from 2004. Whatever wasn’t filed away was shredded. 5 bags of confetti.

The fact that I’m bored of WoW and CoV/CoH makes me dizzy bodes well for my cleaning extravaganza. Poor James.

And time to …

Start cooking and eating healthy. If you know us at all, you know we don’t cook or eat in. But that’s all going to stop tonight!

Once again, I hope to channel Martha and become a master of simple yet elegant meals that are low in fat but high in taste and nutritional value. :P

And of course, hit the gym. La la~

What do you like to do in Spring?

A Brief Getaway From The Everyday Hustle

Or so we thought.

The Inn of the Four Winds is quaint. Directly overlooking the beach with lovely vistas.

And there's a condo that's being built right next door. We didn't think about it too much... until this morning..

Bang! Bang! Clang! Clang! Whrrrrrr.

Oh, you're kidding me.
