Not teaching tomorrow morning (at least not so far). Babysitting duties aren't particularly taxing, so once I'm done working I have options. I can go for the two+ hour hike (challenging, rough on the sprained foot/ankle, in the beautiful early autumn woods) or go rollerblading (9.5+ miles, rough on the knee, mostly flat with the occasional twig or stone hazard, in the beautiful early autumn woods-ish).

My other option is to run the paved trail instead of strapping on my skates, but honestly? I get bored. SO. QUICKLY. My freakishly shaped ears preclude using my iPod; I've yet to find a set of earbuds that stays in when I move. Besides, I try to run too fast too quickly and get winded within minutes. I really, really suck at running.

Whatever I do, I really ought to spend some time with a weapon, be it broadsword or scimitar or quarterstaff. I'd quite like to get my body back into the stage combat groove. Chances are I'll never use those skills again, but they're fun, and drilling them is a decent workout.

EDIT: aaaaand now I'm teaching the 5:15 class. Bugger.

I've tried the loop ones, but not this brand; they bud part popped out of my ears and the loop fell off the moment I started moving.

I'll try them though. They may be just the right pair at last! *fingers crossed*

It comes with a few different bud/loop sizes, so maybe you could find the right combo? I hope it works!

Doll, you have a standing offer - I spend a decent portion of my year fighting, and while I will probably never have your natural talent with a weapon, I can keep up and certainly help us both get a decent fighty workout. We could take turns with whose backyard we play in.

I know, hon, and I totally love you and appreciate the offer. I just worry I'm so out of shape/form that I'll be no good, even if it's just playing.

Not to say I don't want to do this. I do. I just want to make sure I'm a good partner. :)

Ah, playing with weaponry. I'm happy to have so many friends who will hang out with me and let me swing swords at them. Pity one of them leaves for the army in 5 days.

And this is another thing (alongside cooking and watching geeky TV shows and chatting about books and finding a place to ride) to add to the list of What We Will Do When We Finally Hang Out For Reals.

I have a pair of these and I love them. They don't go IN your ear, so perhaps you'd find them more comfortable?
