Flight of Ideas


You would think that I, (The -one -who -talks -a -lot (my American Indian name) would have no trouble posting here today. I've got nothing. Nada. Nil. And I figured that if I started typing that an idea would come to me. Have no ideas either. After all it's five am in the morning for crying out loud.

Are you wondering why I get up so early? I thought so. Hey there's an idea. I'll tell you.

I used to go to the gym. There was a very nice one in the office building in NJ where I "used" to work. I'd get up at 4:30Am..jump into my gym clothes, take my work clothes with me and off I'd go to arrive at the gym at 5AM. I'm a morning person so this didn't bother me and working out before made me feel really good all day.

Two years ago, my position was moved over to NYC. No gym! Yet I still get up early. Now I read blogs. and although I love all you guys it just doesn't induce those endorphins like the gym used to. Oh you induce something....just don't know what to call it....blogaphins??? Yeah, that may be it. And I do go to work with a warm and fuzzy feeling as a result.....Thanks for that!

And I wish I could do the tango! (I wonder where that came from?)

Peace

Matt, don't be crushed. You do induce something, I just don't know what to call it yet. ;-)
Peace

Blogaphins is a good term. Go with it.

I'm glad you feel warm and fuzzy ~ I try to keep my blog that way.

I read an article once that one of the Scandinavian countries embraced the Tango like no other country outside of Latin America. Fun fact to know and yell today....

4:30 am workout? (groan) I am not a morning person. I find I am happiest all day if I have a calm and peaceful morning, oh ya, A LARGE cup of coffee helps.

Are you micro whinoing?? Here's some topics I'd love to know about you. I'd love to see the view from your apartment window. I'd like to know what New Yorkers are really like. How is the trade center memorial coming along? Are the stars/plays/times square a part of daily life?? does the snot dog snore?

How's that?? I don't know anything about NYC - and rarely leave the west to find out - so share! :)

morning people freak me out. i guess that means you freak me out. at 4:30 in the morning, the only thing i'm good for is swollen eyes and grunting.

CS said...

Can't say I'm a morning person, even though I have to get up about 5:30 to get kids and me off to school/work on time. But in my ideal world, I'd be staying up late and sleeping in.

Szarek(Will) said...

Dude I wish I could wake up that early...but to be honest..I love my sleep...

Good to hear that the Blogaphins keep you up and running...
