In Topic: Spam of late

Yesterday, 08:05 PM

I'd like to make some kind of joke linking the spam to 'professional tart' but my mind isn't moving quickly enough.


So I'm'a just say, yeah, wot 'e said!

It's always a wonder what 'the plan' was when idiots do things like this....

I've taken to reading up about the role of propaganda in peace time and in war time, as well as psychology journal articles regarding social manipulation. Also very interesting reading is material from former self-identified "terrorists" (think, IRA, white supremacists). It's the same, or similar, roots that hook these people into these causes, every time. Should almost be compulsory reading in these times. Highly recommended for broadening understanding :-)

25c inside tonight ... nearly time for slippers and tracky-daks.

Phbtbbtbtb! :P~~~~

Currently 21 in this room; got down to 9 in my bedroom last night.


Feels like that at night in our bedroom at the moment :-D Glass door smashed in the cyclone-byproduct storm (while we were away, yay!) so we've got a gaping hole in the wall. I had two blankets with the doona the last couple of nights and still woke up periodically during the night, cold :-) Being born and raised in a town that regularly sees -5 degrees in winter, of course I'm loving it :-)

I don't know if it's a genuine, chemically-measurably, scientific "endorphin rush" but I generally do enjoy exercise. I don't do gyms, though. I only do stuff I like doing*. I'm still building back up to my previous levels of fitness, though, which can be a bit frustrating at times. Especially since I find it difficult to get into solid, consistent rhythms with exercise. I do "something" pretty much every day, but sometimes that "something" is just going for a walk. Or my yoga practice. But I don't do anything for an hour, unless it's a family thing like biking, because I just don't have that much time in a single block anymore.

Still, I do stuff I like, and I usually feel pretty good afterwards. Like I said, not sure if it's the actual, real "endorphin rush" but I don't tend to think of exercise as a chore, or have to force myself to do it. I quite like having sore muscles, and I do like pushing myself :-)


edit: * that's highly likely why I don't look like a fitness model :-) That, and I like food. If I put my mind to it, I'm sure I could be much more disciplined with both food and exercise, and be skinny and ripped and whatnot. Would it be great to look like that? Yep. Am I chasing it? Nope. No excuses, I just don't want it enough. I'm happy with the balance I've achieved thus far, without compromising my sanity, my family time or my time with my daughter. I'm trying to get a bit fitter, but that's just for fun and health. So whilst I do some form of exercise every day, sometimes that's only taking kiddo for a walk. That's hardly going to get me a flat stomach but we have fun and that's my main thing.
