Now a total pro at taking cold showers.

If this was the sole indicator of success in the military, maybe I'd enlist!

Ultimately the gym's lack of hot water lasted from the Friday evening before last through Monday midday, during which time I took three cold showers and heard much griping from other members. Ultimately it's annoying but I would be more annoyed by having my routine disrupted, so I am happier with my choice. All was well Tuesday and Wednesday, then I took two days off to deal with the rest of life: on Thursday I had lots of work to plow through (and caught up admirably!), then on Friday had a bit of an LJ reunion after work (see next paragraph). But lo and behold, I walked in to the gym today and there were giant "HOT WATER IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE; SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE" signs up. So, I did my cardio and then had my fourth cold shower in a week. All it really takes is pointing the showerhead so the water doesn't hit me directly, and being very quick. I'm probably saving a lot of water in the process, not that we are short of it around here.

The Friday event was occasioned by Rice coming into DC for the first time in a few years. We had a Facebook thread going and eventually agreed to have a game night at Matt and Kyle's house, which Dave also attended. We ordered Wok & Roll, had much wine, and played Lost Woods. There was talk of playing a second game, but the wine had us very chatty so we instead retired to their lovely media room to watch RuPaul's Drag Race. I got home at 1:30; originally we were toying with the idea of going out after board games, which I'm glad never came to pass because I was super tired already!

Going out of chronological order here, but on Thursday I went to wash the car right after work. First time in a year, oops! Our garage is a dust haven, so now it appears to be a different color altogether. I then picked up dinner on the way back home (there are precious few car washes remaining in the city, and none I know of that are open past 6), dropped the car, and met Stuart at DC9. Pretty much everyone we know from that place was on one or the other side of the rooftop bar, and it wasn't otherwise that busy, so a lovely time. We tried to meet up with Steve at Backbar after that but he was still working with no end in sight so we parted ways. I then met up with B and Brett at Dodge City for a drink, and we heard the story behind Brett's new hair (she has a rainbow dyed into her head now, LOL). Lovely to be somewhere other than my office or a weight room for a bit!

there is just no way I could do a cold shower at the gym. The place never feels clean enough anyway so a cold shower would just be the end of it for me LOL Plus, shrinkage!!!! hahaha

I can't say I am necessarily enjoying them, more like enduring them. Hopefully hot water is back for good when I'm there tomorrow!
