Doesn't feel like a Monday today

And that's probably because of the long weekend we just had. :/

Anyway. Today also happened to be the last day of my daughter's school holidays. Tomorrow, we get back into the routine that seems to work better for everyone. Lol.

The cool thing about school holidays is that routine pretty much gets thrown out the window. It's not so bad for a few weeks. But it's also cool to get back into it.

I didn't want to get stuck into any new writing or revisions today. Instead, I wanted to concentrate on updating my website, MySpace, and things like that. Every time I have a new release, I like to do that.

We went for two long walks too. I feel like I have to somehow compensate the fact that I can't lift weights for a while. Man, I still can't get over that. My shoulder/arm still hurt. But I have to admit that it's mostly bearable now. The worst is the pain on my elbow. That doesn't seem to fade at all. :( Need that extra recovery time, I guess.

Over the weekend we watched a documentary called The King of Kong. It's basically the story of a man called Steve Wiebe, and how he beat a Donkey Kong record that had been standing for like 25 years. I know, I know... I started watching this show thinking: oh man, this is about nerds! But honestly, it was about so much more. It was about a decent family man who should have rightfully been given the record placing, instead of having to travel here and there to prove himself. While the obnoxious guy holding the world record snubbed and belittled him every chance he got! He didn't even introduce himself to the guy.

Man, this other guy's name is Billy Mitchell. And for some reason, he seemed convinced that he was some hot celeb who everyone needed to bow down to. I got really caught up in this story, hating what this Billy jerk said, claimed and did. He kept going on and on about how important it was to set world records live and in front of people. Then he goes and sends a very dodgy tape. My gosh. You really have to see this to believe it. Some people are evil, no matter what they do. Honestly...

Okay. I'm blogging a little later than usual. The day really went by very quickly, but I do feel like I've accomplished stuff. And tomorrow, I'm headin' back into Revision City. ;)

Amazing how we can get sucked into those television shows, huh?

Speaking of time warps though. I'm reading your blog and thinking, huh? Isn't it just Monday...then realized today is Tuesday. Where in the world did yesterday go???
