I didn’t go to the gym this afternoon. My left knee was bugging me for most of the day at the office, and I was afraid that if I did my usual routine something would just give out. And so I spent the rest of the afternoon at home, taking my first afternoon siesta for what seems to be a week. Truth be known, before I finally dozed off, it didn’t really feel right. Just lying there in bed, I mean. I suppose going to the gym every afternoon has become a habit of sorts, which is a good thing, since that means I can finally see things through to the end.
It was a little convenient that it rained just as I was having second thoughts. When I heard the patter of the raindrops on the roof beside my room I thought to myself, “Ah, I guess that means I won’t be able to go today.” And with that, I was able to sleep more soundly.
I can’t say that the little siesta has fixed everything, but my knee is feeling much better now than how it was this morning. So it’s back to the exercise routine tomorrow. I’m not sure how I can make up for the missed day, but the goal for the week is still to lose at least a pound, so I’ll just see about that. Less intake, and maybe a longer session at the gym perhaps? Who knows?
Speaking of a refreshing afternoon nap, I think today was one of those days where it was really merited. While it would be pushing it to say that my workshift was hellish, it wasn’t exactly how I wanted to end my week. It was nearly five full hours of nonstop customer service calls, and I was this close to exploding on the callers I was talking. In fact I think in some ways I did, as I was rude, brusque, and generally irritated. It was like some idiot (likely in the workforce desk) gave me priority on the CS queue. Earth to dumbarses, I’m a merchant rep first, CS rep second, not the other way around. If I wanted to answer CS calls all day (and I don’t) I would have gone full-time.
It was a good thing my supervisor took the hint, and had me taken off the CS queue. For all the flak the rest of my team gives her and our team coach, it’s times like these that I appreciate the efforts she does to help us out in, even if it’s something as simple as queue reassignment.
Anyway, enough for depressing work talk. I’ve decided on the major colors for the remaining Pleiades. Saki will get Green, Nico will get Blue, Mirai will get pink, while Satomi will get Indigo. As for Sumire, well obviously she’d get Violet. That, in the very least, was obvious. I won’t be able to do the basing tonight though, but chores aside I should be able to work on them tomorrow.
Hah, not that anyone cares about this little fan project of mine though.
P.S. For today’s reading, I finished Otaku no Musume-San. It’s series like these (like Change! 123! and Wakusei no Samidare ,though for different reasons) that make me question the system that Japanese producers use to decide which manga get to be adapted to anime and which don’t. Here we have nice and completed series, and yet they never get any kind of adaptation (which would lessen problems when said adaptation catches up to a source material, which is often a problem with an ongoing source). I know I know, an anime is meant to publicize a work, and not vice versa, but it’s kind of a waste that series like these never get any exposure as a result.
