The joys of summer

I have now invested in some fly spray

Woe is me

Just when I was getting into my running and building up my endurance... I have to stop. Nothing but low impact cardio (ie. cycling and walking *yawn*), leg curls and 1-legged squats (I dare you to try those and without holding anything for balance). The area around my left knee has given me slight problems off and on for awhile but it was never really serious and I could run through it. Last Friday must have really aggravated it cos I spent most of the weekend limping. Anyway I was good and went to the physio which turned out to be far more worthwhile than doctors visits ever are. They had a pretty good idea of what the problem is, something to do with where the hamstring meets the knee joint. Went back again yesterday which has left it very sensitive so today I'm back to a slight limp. And apparently it will take at least one month to get better (probably more like two months) and for me to be able to run again.

Thankfully Toru can come get me from work today. It's a half-day and we close up for the year today. Two boxes arrived for me with the couriers today and work gave us all large food/drink baskets as a present. There's no way I can carry all of that and get on the bus home :P There's currently $80 worth of fudge in my office

I dunno?

Anyway Masi Oka
was nominated for a Golden Globe for Heroes. Awesome. He has to win.

Had to slog away at the gym for twice as long this morning. We had our work christmas function thingy yesterday and it ended up being vineyard tours and wine testing. Bit hard to not drink if the event is wine tasting. I ended up leaving with 3 bottles of wine (two dessert) which I have to try and keep Toru's paws off of otherwise they will not see the end of the week. So yes, hence the extra long gym session this morning.

I really do have no luck with them do I? Maybe I should have a blog entitled "Maree's bad adventures with couriers". All day the track n trace has said that the item was delivered at 8.51AM. Some nice customer service person tried to call the driver but he's not answering his phone.

At least I got Snow Patrol tickets. YEAHHHHH!!! Go the presale. Now I don't have to worry about not being able to get anywhere to buy them on Friday. I have a feeling I got the first few tickets :P Yes - work was very dead so I could jump on the tickets the second they became available.

Oh yeah, New Zealand is apparently the 'third least corrupt' country in the world. The Finnish beat us at something yet again.

Superman goodness


My 14 disc Superman Collector's tin arrived this morning. Yay for the super quick Amazon shipping.
