Spring Has Sprung

I feel like I'm trapped inside a video game.

I reached another level last night on the tread. Level 12. It felt like an extra hard bonus round with my T.o.M. hitting me like a bloody Soprano episode. The treadmill goes up to 9.2 incline grade. And I was laughing at my reflection in the turned-off TV monitor in my face.

What's my prize?

Well, I can tell you what it isn't going to be. It isn't going to be an Italian bodyguard...it is Tuesday, he hasn't touched base. I'm pretty sure he just isn't "that into meeting me." I figured it was too good to be true. He's out of my league; I need an uglier man so I feel prettier. Sick twisted but realistic, isn't it? And that's OK. Bodyguard guy's a playa, I'm sure, but I would've made an exception and played around with him.

But guys seem to be growing like weeds. Got two on the horizon, at the phone and email stage. Go figure. One gets squashed and another two pop up in his place. Must be spring.

Nice work out! Impressive, really!
Meh, boys will be boys and there are always plenty more where bodyguard came from.

Maybe all the muscle & the testosteron'esque role are to compensate for lacking in another dept?

I can't believe it's not butter either.

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
