Here I am, using the new site

I have high hopes for blogging over here, which is comical because I just updated my profile to read that my current key to happiness is low expectations. I guess I'll feel better about it once I convince my tiny LJ readership to migrate over here.

I've got so many things to do today that I'm too scattered to be coherent right now, but here's a question I posed to the universe recently: unwaxed dental floss - WHY? I purchased unwaxed dental floss at the grocery a couple of weeks ago and that stuff is so useless it's pathetic. Also it's not only useless, it's highly annoying. So a few days ago when I went to Costco I splurged on high-end dental tape, and I got so excited about that it was kind of sad.

I'm still slogging along with this iteration of Couch to 5K. I started week three this morning and it wasn't bad. The routine is to do two reps of: jog 90 seconds, walk 90 seconds, jog three minutes, walk three minutes. If I could just do that routine forever it wouldn't be a bad thing. Small twinge in my knee but I'm trying to ignore it.

I find that ignoring twinges is actually just fine. I've been running more lately too and with this older body, I've been having a few twinges. But, it stops after the run, or goes away as the body gets stronger.
