So, after a 4 month hiatus I have made my return to the gym. God it's about damn time. I just rode the bike for 45 minutes and called it a night. My most recent excuse for not going to the gym was because I just wanted to watch something (not read something) while doing cardio. My gym doesn't have TVs, so I was waiting to get video iPod. It finally arrived today. I got the 8G Touch, and I freakin' love it! Am still working on filling it with appropriate play lists, tv shows, podcasts (audio and video). If you have any suggestions please let me know. Currently I just have Anderson Cooper 360 (enjoyable for multiple reasons), a Bloomberg update and VH1's Best Week Ever. That is just enough for me to get through my cardio work out. I feel 1M times better after going to the gym. I've only got 5 inches of belly fat to lose in 21 days. Gotta look hot for San Diego...not too hot though, I don't want BH to try and fuck me...sorry B.
I went to see my esthetician Jess today. I don't know her last name, so I won't use initials, plus I don't think folks at Mario use their real name, I know some go for pseudonyms, so I'm not too concerned. I like her. I'm not sure if she and I would ever be friendly outside of our professional relationship, but I think she's a good egg-- and does a great job. Plus I think she's doing something she really enjoys doing.
Speaking of doing things you like to do -- I had to present today at work. I taught a 60 minute course on the history of insurance and basics of insurance policies. I was teaching this to my team. Read my previous posts about my team. A couple are "interesting"....(read slow). My analogy to help them understand insurance policies was "insurance policies are like sandwiches -- you can have thousands of different sandwiches, but you can tell they are sandwiches. The different components/ingredients don't make it any more or less of a sandwich (policy)." I thought it was clever. Unfortunately I think it was lost on a couple of these people. The questions were asked were so far off from what I had just talked about. I couldn't be a teacher. The first time a student said something stupid or missed something on the test that I specifically told them, I'd just write the whole class off, and just coast through until I get my pension.
I hate people.
The weather is supposed to be fantastic this weekend. Should be around 60 degrees along the lake. It's about god damn time. I have to run a few errands tomorrow. I need to get some new formal wear accessories -- pocket square, bow tie, leather harness -- oh wait...strike that last one...it's not that kind of a benefit.
Ok -- one final thing. I can't get the wifi to work on my new ipod. WTF? I've followed every option I can find. It claims it is connected to my secure network (entered in the PW). I even restored and updated the software. I am retarded at times. A friend just started a new mac consulting firm MacHero. Maybe I'll have to call him and tell him how stupid I am at times. Any of you mac people out there, if you have problems with your stuff, call Gino. He's great at what he does. CALL HIM! Tell him I sent you -- you won't get a discount, just tell him I sent you...oh, and don't be a dick.
