Happy Birthday, Queen Victoria

This Cagaydian is glad he had a holiday today in your honour. And he tries not to immediately associate your reign with the "ring" named after your late husband; rather, he pictures pretty Victorian houses in Cabbagetown with lilacs in full bloom.

I had a great week. I exercised five times--a frequency I haven't seen in years--and feel a lot better. I lost a pound, but losing weight isn't my primary focus. (Indeed, I should hope that my activities* built up some muscle mass, thereby reducing the net loss of weight.) I'm sleeping better, more alert in the morning, eating less, and not feeling so guilty about "wasting" the gym membership.

Oh, and if you haven't seen the movie in the picture, I highly recommend it.

Sounds like a week well spent. I'll have to check out that film sometime. It will surely put spouse to sleep though.

I loved that film, so very moving. It was nice to hear the Old Bat was a little human :)

madamerouge said...

um, it's Dame Judi Dench, and she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her performance (and I think I've just proved Indygirl's point)

AG: for demonstrating solid knowledge of Canadian statuatory holidays... 100 bonus points.

There you go with your titles again!

Keep up the good work at the gym.

Good work at the gym...has the "steamroom" etiquette/scene changed much in the months that you've been away?

madamerouge said...

nah, it's still the same... you never get "privacy" when you need it

I do likes me a good shvitz, though

Butchieboy said...

I gotta take a shvitz.
