3 Healthy Things

1. So, my hunny driving me up Colfax, eagerly pointing out anything he thought was a Black Hair salon, was adorable.

2. Stopping by Gizzard's house felt naughty...being welcomed in was pretty cool, too.

3. I have decided that Singin' in the Rain might be the finest movie musical there ever was...and I've only seen the Umbrella Thing.

Good things from Sunday

1. We wandered through the Pan Asian Festival in Boulder yesterday afternoon. Sunshine, Tai-chi, and a wonderful transwoman named Sheri who encouraged us to volunteer for the Bias Incident Reporting Team. Reminded me of RAPP days!
2. We had tea at the Dushanbe Teahouse with J's friends; it was a very interesting conversation. Media folk are pretty cool, and with my interest in digital storytelling, we could teach each other a lot.
3. Soap, Season 1 on Netflix Instant Queue. Hilarity and reliving my early childhood-yay!

1. Oskar Blues- my first time there. On Friday, Jason (my luv) surprised me by biking like crazy to renew the tags on our car, then taking me for a drive along his favorite bike route. I had a salad; he had chicken fried steak. We ended the night on our rooftop (he has the only key), watching the sunset and over-sharing.
2. I went on an actual bike ride. We set out for the store for ice cream for J, and wound up pedaling for awhile. Boulder is beautiful on a bike trail, and I wasn't scared.
3. I met some of Jason's friends from his Upward Bound days. We were invited to a BBQ. Very nice, hospitable people, a bit quiet and reserved, which made me adjust down, closer to their speed. I met some women of color professors who teach at Naropa, and I was heartened that I could choose this path.
4. My grandma is a woman of faith, and a woman who believes in the power of Jesus to forgive all our sins and shortcomings. Her conversations always have some nugget of wisdom that helps me carry on.
5. My mother's continued generosity allows us luxury we desperately need to keep sane right now.
6. Seeing the sun shine over the mountains reminds me that there is a loving presence that exists all the time.

Three Good Things

1. I drank a lot of water today.

4. And there are more!

Wii ain't fit, wii sore

Ouch says the back after punching.

Ooh say the trapezius muscles.

I am a victim of Wii-induced exercise. Like everyone else said would happen. Why don't I listen?

But I achieved working with the Wii every day since I hooked it up (Wednesday), and I learned that I could beat my beau on boxing, and we could knock each other down at the same time. Ha!

This is fun.
