Reporting live from my food coma.

My typing is unaffected, but any other activity is off limits.

B made an amazing dinner tonight: roast chicken, gravy, broccoli spears with chili oil, and some lovely potatoes from his favorite food blogger. That we now just say "Kenji" in response to the source of many recipes shows how frequently we are relying on his mad science of food!

It has been a decent week, if a bit crazily busy. I did a long run on Sunday afternoon, when the weather was perfect. I have gone to work out each day since, at 2 pm on Monday and after work yesterday and today. Not coincidentally I also sleep better when I stick to this routine! The many things that were not working at the gym have all been corrected! The wifi wouldn't work on my phone for a while, but that is now back. And for the entire time I've been going there, the network would not allow streaming audio. This is not crucial and also not really surprising, as they don't need me sucking up all the bandwidth, but I tried it yesterday and it does work now! Back to my Hype Machine playlists I go, where I have much more workout-appropriate music than on my phone. Also, the water only had one temperature, SUPER HOT, on various recent days but that too is now back to normal. I'm sure the gym manager is dreading what will break next.

Work has indeed been nutty, but I am making significant progress on my portions of our many projects. This will continue tomorrow, then on Friday most of the office will be out for the Community Service Day. For that one I envision a much less intense day, and hopefully another midday gym visit.

On Monday I got drinks with Brandon at Trade and we shared many life updates that are pretty exciting. He and Ben are tentatively planning their wedding for September 2019 in PTown! Can't wait. Then on Tuesday afternoon B informed me that Meg would be at his bar at Looking Glass that day, so I wolfed down dinner and went there. New Guy was also there and we had a grand time half-watching baseball and planning random occasions, such as the next Red Lobster Day.

That's about all I've got! I know I still need to write a post about the wedding, but let's save that for when I have not just had a quarter of a chicken and a pile of heavenly potatoes.

I'm glad the wi-fi at the gym is working now and the network is allowing streaming audio. It's amazing to think that a few years ago, I managed all my songs and playlists on an iPod, but nowadays I do everything through Spotify. I have some "emergency" playlists saved to my phone, but those get stale after a while.

Indeed. I've gone through several generations of iPods and now three iPhones, and the music experience is so different. If I were to update to the next iPhone (which frankly I don't want to do) I would even have to give up my headphones and use those wacky wireless earbuds!
