Why didn't anyone warn me about X-Men 3? We should've gone to see Cars instead.
Lut and I bought freeweights and a weight bench yesterday. And Weight Training for Dummies. I picked out dumbbells. Barbells would be more versatile, since you can add and remove plates to them. But I have come to an ever-increasing appreciation of exercise equipment you don't have to mess with. Exercise is its own roadblock; avoid making additional ones if at all possible.
We're setting the weights up in one room of the Basement of Doom. On top of a 12mm foam garage mat. That should be enough to keep them above water level, even if it floods again. Haven't had a significant flooding problem since the Plumbing Incident, actually.
I put up a new default icon. This one is from a picture of me taken at ConQuesT. Got a batch of photos a couple of days ago that were taken by one of the other congoers, and I rather liked the expressions in some of them. I may finally add some new icons and fill a few of my umpteen remaining slots.
I should go write another Silver Scales entry, but I expext I'll play Puzzle Pirates instead.
