WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO! 5.10-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [May. 21st, 2008|11:32 pm]

I climbed my first 5.10 tonight, a 5.10-!!!!!!!!!

I am feeling soooo incredible, I think it's going to be tough to come down from this high and get to sleep!

It was a corner climb, with a left-traverse start.  I love corner climbs, but traversing to the left is my nemesis.  Somehow, after about 4 attempts, I made it more than 6 inches off the ground... then came the fun!  Luckiiy, I had the advice of avra, Brad, and Random-Bouldering-Guy. 

Yep, in a corner climb half the work is done by pushing outwards into the corner with your hands and feet, and smearing or shimmying your way up, holding onto nothing, but pressing into the wall.  SO. FUN.  There were a ton of crimpy holds, and some good holds, and some REALLY CRIMPY TOE HOLDS that broke my feet.

The worst part was doing the splits for most of the way up, stretching my hip-flexors past their max, and then pushing up all my body weight on them.  Somehow, even with the pain, this was REALLY fun.

There were two or three holds I had to leap for... imagine leaping for a hold, that's not that easy to grip, when your hands and feet are not really holding onto much because you're staying in place by pressing yourself into a corner.  Fun.  A few attempts for one of them, but fun.

Yep.  I feel awesome.  Fear my awesome!!!!!!!

The fabulous Brad climbed it after me.  He's a copycat.  ;)

Linz = pumped.  I can't wait for more on Friday night!!!!!!!!

I'm on vocal rest.

Swollen vocal chords = sad Linz.

I think I want to cry.  At least I'm getting an appointment with a singing-voice specialist ENT.  Wish me luck and good health!

If you were me, and were looking for 6 dining-room chairs, in dark brown or black wood, where would you go shopping?

Ikea has already been checked.

It feels REALLY good to be climbing again.  I didn't realize how much I missed it.  I'm glad Nick and I are in a "let's get in shape" kind of a pact where we're climbing over lunch hour.  Sweet.  Works into my schedule perfectly -- especially with the show madness right now!

My loft is officially mine as of tomorrow.  Huzzah!  (And fecking land transfer property tax.  Evil evil evil.)

Long overdue update of le randomness. [Jan. 15th, 2008|02:03 pm]

Happy New Year?
I'm happy to be back to my routines... kind of.  My work schedule is quite wonky right now, but I'll survive.  

I'm back on the WeightWatchers bandwagon, and working out is going REALLY well.  I am absolutely hooked on the new Adaptive Movement Trainer (AMT) machine at the gym.  It's my new best friend.  Climbing is stalled until Ms avra's hand recovers.  Wish her good thoughts, ok?

Singing is going REALLY well too - and so is my upcoming show.  I am really starting to bond with my fellow cast-members, and the directors are finally starting to see my abilities.  Goodgoodgood.

I wish I had a little more time (or any time) to actually socialize.  But I knew this would happen.  Hopefully things will settle a bit once my show's over and I can actually have friends over to my new place.  (Oh yeah, it's closing at the end of the month, so it will be TRULYMINE!  Mwahhaha.)

Ok, off to my own lesson, some teaching, and a rehearsal. 
Happy Tuesday!

Just picked up the guitar again, and man does it feel good.

I really missed it.

Off to learn some songs!

Happy Holidays to all, and to all a God Jul!

I'm currently waiting to get someone towed from my parking spot.  Woot.  Nothing says 'Tis the Season like a good old fashioned car-towing.

Or should I say, Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeys! 

I get my keys today for the new place!  It's my Occupancy Date... because it's a "new" building, we don't close until sometime in 2008, so I'm essentially renting until then.  But, MY NEW PLACE!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!! 

(let's hope the snow doesn't screw things up!)
