So, I'd actually write about something new, except that I'm all discombobulated figuring out this blogger thing. Yeah, while MSN/WL pissed me off with that switch-over, I gotta give them that it was pretty intuitively obvious what to do when using their site. (At least, the original one.) However, you'll note that I DID figure out how to not only put in links, but to retitle the links section and add in a second one. Woo-hoo!
Enjoying a lovely beer that Mr. Kluges just brought to me. It's called "Trappistes Rochefort 8" and it's just... lovely. You'd think I'd be able to describe it better, so let's see... It's a cloudy deep nutty brown, with a surprisingly white head. A little sharp with alcohol, it's still fairly mellow and rounded for a trappist-style beer, with a slightly tingly aftertaste. Like I said, lovely. He got it in Kilkenny a few weeks ago, but we just broke it out now. There's a great liquor store there that we remembered fondly from our several months in Ballyragget in '02.
So, I haven't yet gotten in my full complement of exercise. You see, Pumpkin, who usually naps at LEAST an hour, if not 1 1/2, decided (even after being up from about 1 am until about 2:30 am upset and then hungry) to only rest for 40 minutes this afternoon. Here I was, exercise video in the VCR, busily warming up to Claudia Schiffer's Perfectly Fit Upper Body Workout (which does include abs, a problem spot for me), when "Waaah!" End of exercise session.
And now? Well, I've got a lovely trappist in front of me... and it's 10:00 at night. Guess I'm not going to make my goal this week. Oh, well, it was a short week anyway with August starting on a Tuesday... I'll work a little harder on it next week. (And I WILL be getting in 30 minutes tomorrow - no ifs, ands, or buts (butts?) about it!)
So, cheers to y'all or slainte if you prefer... I'm going to go enjoy my beverage!
