Is It Too Much To Ask For a Little Sunshine?

Sick. To. Death. Of. Rain.

Seriously, we have not had a cloudless day yet this entire summer. I realize that global warming is jacking up the entire world climate but, now; it is interfering with my ability to get a little color-just a titch, nothing dangerous- and I am not happy.

Also, the Man-Cub is quite concerned about the Polar Bears so, do what you can for the ozone layer, people; the Polar Bears and my suntan are counting on you.

So, yeah, I went to boxing again last night and I am one sore motherf*cker today. I still love it, in case you were wondering and, if you are searching for an alternative form of exercise, I highly recommend it. Last night alone, I burned a zillion calories doing three-minute circuits through the various stations; I have become accustomed to the sound of the ring timer and, according to the ex-boxer teaching the class, I have a mean left hook, already.

Bad men in dark alleys should fear me.

I should mention that one of the stations on the circuit consists of punching the shit out of a boxing mannequin (I have no idea what the correct term for it is; we just call him Bob) and it only took me a couple of timid punches before I felt confident enough to open up a can of whoop-ass; I am now perfectly comfortable beating the shit out of Bob's ugly rubber face.

Once again, men, dark alleys, fear.

Speaking of fear, I am now headed off to Pilates class. I want to get there early so that I can reclaim the spot that I usually use; one of the women from the Scary Pilates Clique stole it from me the week before last and I am bound and determined to get it back.

Unless she looks at me funny in which case, I am totally flexible and can use a different spot.

In case I haven’t mentioned it before; the women of Pilates are a lot scarier than rubber men named Bob. Or, anything else one might find in a dark alley, for that matter.


  1. We are in the middle of the rainy season here as well, and yes, it is starting to suck big donkey balls!

  2. We have had an odd amount of rain here... it never rains here so I have no idea why. I would like to kick a dummy's ass maybe i'll have to take up boxing!
