hi ho, hi ho, it's nuts at work we go!

So it’s week two of the social experiment… otherwise known as being 28 for six whole days now.

Seriously, best way to spend a birthday if you’re a dancer? Tell everyone you’ll be out of town a week before your birthday, therefore prompting a friend to give you a bday dance the week earlier. Don’t actually leave town until AFTER your birthday, so you get another birthday jam on your actual bday. Go out of town to dance the next day, where people know it’s your birthday. Get a jam circle for it. Then get another jam circle for being from out of town. Is it any wonder I was limping by Sunday (no aerials though, which sucked… I so have to learn some of those soon).

Anyways, so accomplishments in the last week: They seemed to totally love me on Wednesday, and I was very personable. Unfortunately, they’d also found another candidate, so that meant zilch. Back to the job hunting drawing board (was upset at the time, but really? Losing 1/7th (min) of my salary so I can work an extra 10 to 20 hours a week? Probably a good thing I didn’t get it).

Found ride and accommodations in Ed, so did advanced classes for the first time, and had a blast. Also had the world’s best bubble tea. Will now be insisting on visiting Dream everytime I’m in Edmonton (tho I don’t think anyone will really object to that idea). Also, I actually went to the Fringe Festival at long last! Hurray! Question: Is one still a Fringe Virgin if one only ATE at fringe & watched the buskers, versus seeing any shows?

Spoke my mind (probably too much) at the SDC meeting, but if it makes some positive changes, that’d be great – I’d love to see that thing go gangbusters and I only talked so much because I thought the ideas could benefit everyone (not like most ppl also didn’t have those ideas!)

What else? Finally went climbing last night, a consequence of which is that my forearms are hurting just typing this up… I really need to develop some more arm & back muscles. ONE day I want to be able to actually get up a damn wall or finish a bouldering route without squeaking and wanting to use my chin to grip things (I inadvertedly used my boob last night for balance and all I can say about that is ouch). It felt like I ripped the hell out of my hands, but the calluses are pretty small, which just shows how long it’s been since I climbed, if there is that much pain for minimal damage.

Seriously though, there is not much to talk about, I haven’t had many adventures (besides Edmonton) – I’m just bored shitless at work and wanted a distraction.
Of course, I do have ONE thing on boil… a potential new blog cowritten with a friend. But more about that some other time… my fingers are cramping up like crazy now and I really should do more work!

Off to tackle mount laundry & apartment cleaning tonight…. My life is so full with fabulous adventures!
