I had some major balance problems in my strength class last night. I kept teetering over during lunges, and when we were doing push-ups on the balance ball (you lay on your stomach on the ball, put your hands on the floor, and walk yourself forward until the ball has rolled down to your shins and ankles), I rolled off three times in a row. I wasn’t the only having problems, though. The guy next to me tried to take out my knee with his weights when he rolled off during chest presses. I forgave him; he looks like Jon Hamm.
Speaking of celebrity look-alikes (who are all around – it’s getting weird), I ran into young Stockard Channing again recently at work. An eerie resemblance, at least in part because she’s not that young. She’s like an alternate version of Stockard Channing – another way she could have looked if she’d aged in another direction. I know exactly what I mean by that, but when I read it over, I don’t know exactly what that means. In the same meeting, there was a woman who looked (and sounded) like Catherine Keener. Maybe it WAS Catherine Keener!
To add to the weirdness in that building (I was downtown when I went to the meeting with all the celebrities), they have a public bathroom that – wait for it – actually smells good. It smells like flowers, clearly an air freshener and not actual flowers, but it’s a nice air freshener that doesn’t seem to be just covering up bad smells. I like that bathroom. I don’t want to hang out in it or anything, but it’s my bathroom of choice before I hit the road to come home.
Oh, oh! Wildlife sighting! The dogs and I were jogging on the trail this evening, and I saw NINE DEER. At once! Just hanging out. They saw us, but they didn’t run (which is why both of my arms are still attached to my body – I think if the deer had taken off, the dogs would have, too); they sort of ambled off into the woods, looking back at us over their shoulders. Nine of them! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many deer in one place.
When I got home, I got a little lost in TV Tropes. If you’ve never been there, be warned! Don’t do it at work! It can sometimes be hours before you come up for air.
It’s been a very exciting evening.
