And a good evening to you from across the globe after another GREAT DAY in the Lion City. VICTORY TONIGHT, my friends, as Sammy the Bull FINALLY completed a track workout! It was a doozy, and I kept the exertion to 75-85% throughout the workout. We did a pair of pyramids (200-300-400-300-200, with a 30 second break between each one), as well as a relay to end the evening. It was a GREAT workout, and I am bloody exhausted now. And the coolest part (don't panic, mum) was that we had CRAZY LIGHTNING the entire time. Seriously - picture huge flashes illuminating the night sky, followed by INSANE streaks across the sky. It was EXTRA AWESOME - I hadn't seen a good electrical storm in a while! We did find it funny because the Shuffler website reads "We'll run unless there's lightning!" Riiiiiiiight - some false advertising right there. :-)
The work day was good - another steadily busy one, but we did get a break for lunch. Muffin Puffin and I hit up "Brotzeit," which is the German place that serves...wait for it...wait for it...FLAMMEKUCHE!!!! Bring on the the open faced sandwich, baby!!!! Oh, wait...Ash, admit it - that was a CLASSIC moment.
Other than that, not a whole lot else to report. The cab home from the track was filled with plenty of 80's music, and I learned that the #4 hit on this day in 1983 was Culture Club's "Do you really want to hurt me?" Let me go ahead and say it for the record - THAT SONG REALLY SUCKS. And the #1 song on this day 28 years ago? "Billie Jean." I can see a single tear rollin' down VA's cheek as she pours some vino out to the King of Pop. Blood - set down that wine glass and go rock the Cubby Bear or Goose Island for a proper pint, yo!
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat tomorrow!
