Subject:Reuse a shoe (or at least recycle a pair)
Time:09:21 pm
I'm always impressed with recycling programs, and I came across this link on Cranky Fitness.

Although it seems more of a way to recycle waste generated during the manufacturing process, Nike have developed a way to recycle both this and post-consumer waste (ie worn out sneakers). Drop off points are available in Europe, USA, Australia and Japan (apparently soon).

Still alive, though this has been more a medium for reading others' posts for a good long while. It's likely to remain that way, though I thought I'd point out that I'm posting (after quite the hiatus) over at this is not reality once again.

Maybe I'll post a few snippets here again sometime, but if not, *waves* I'm still reading!

Subject:Long time, no rambling
Time:09:35 pm
My life has become a little whirlwind lately, and the tired I’m feeling is a different kind of tired to how I felt when working night shift. The tiredness is more like this: "I've been flat out and mostly doing things I want to do and now I'm exhausted", instead of this: "I'm so desperate to sleep but I have to get up and go to work."

A little seedy today after a huge work drinking night out. It seems my alcohol consumption is set to steadily increase working with these people... last night almost felt like I was back in my uni days (though a lot less messy on my behalf).

More here.

Strange but profitable coincidences, a new flatmate, and a meme care of Diana (freevolous, you've been tagged!)

So, the new job - working in insurance. I've never had a 'real' job before - where you dress up nicely (corporate), commute to the city, and work regular hours. It's a stark contrast to the rotating roster of evenings and nights, dressed in a practical unisex polo shirt.

And this is where I need help... Next weekend has been designated work-wardrobe shopping. Put it this way - I had to buy interview clothes. I'm starting practically from scratch here. Any advice on what to wear in a corporate-type job is much appreciated.

I've got a new job, working 9-5, in the city. You cannot imagine the extent of my relief to have no more night shifts after the end of this month. More details to come when I actually have time to sit down and write it all out.

(It wasn't the job I initially applied for, but it's with the same company for a slightly more senior role with more prospects).

this is not reality is back in action, as is the associated email address.

(with subsequent full intentions to write more, and more often)

Subject:Sleep-baking
Time:12:47 pm
Fred's been sleep talking a little lately. Mostly things of non-consequence, however Saturday night was so weird that I wasn't sure if I'd dreamt it. "How much flour in 10 ounces?" In my semi-conscious state, I answered that it was about 300g* (isn't it great I can remember such random things, and do the maths to do the conversion, even when I'm not even awake?). When I asked why, there was no reply, and it was clear Fred was asleep. I thought it weird, but almost forgot about it until the morning when he mentioned he felt as though he'd dreamt all night, including dreaming about baking bread.

*NB 10oz = 300g according to this weight conversion calculator.

For the purposes of because I'm excited about class tomorrow, because emodave asked, and a whole lot of because-I-can, here's a list of hoop tricks I've conquered...

This video (not of me, obviously) shows most of the stuff in an actual, fairly rapid, sequence, plus a whole lot of other little bits and pieces I hadn't yet considered (that first jump through is cool; and yes, hoops do go unexpectedly flying at times).

Subject:more hoop talk
Time:02:13 pm
Current Mood:sleepy
Each outer side of my shoulder blades is covered in bruises - delicious results of hard work and finally being able to conquer yet another hoop trick. I can keep the hoop up around my chest! I want to practice more and more just to prove to myself that I can still do it, though first I really need to let the bruises start to heal. It hurts to lie on my back in bed, and on Saturday simply the pressure of my bra straps resting on my skin was painful. I'm not complaining, I'm proud.

(more (non-hoop) talk)
