Weisenheimer Wednesday

Well, I'm off.

Off to take a 4 day intensive prerequisite course that will have mewell on my way to being in the Top 100 "Greatest Mediocre Yogis of the 21st Century".

It's one of those courses to fill in the broadstrokes of "The leg bone's connected to the foot bone" sort of things.

And, like any other endeavor I pursue that could actually lead me forward, I have about 50 thoughts that are holding me back and making me second guess everything.

Thoughts so far:

. Is is wrong that I HATE the layout of the manual we're supposed to be using? It's poorly spaced, the font is atrocious (Times New Roman? Seriously??). Could they have spent a couple more bucks on extra paper so that things aren't all crammed together? Gah.

. How am I supposed to learn from a document so un-aesthetically pleasing?

. Will I accidently blurt out these thoughts to my instructor?

. Will she take it personally

. Should I up my happy pill dosage for the next few days?

. What if my classmates are pretty boy lunkheads, a quarter century younger than me?

. Will I actually fulfill my promise to slap the next person who says "I know coffee is so bad for me - I'm trying to kick the habit" ?

I think I'll be eating lunch alone...

Happy pills and Coffee... what better combonation do you need to get through a class with an un-aesthically pleasing document and young pretty boy lunkheads?

Countess Ti: My bad. I rescind everything I said. Really nice group of people, not a lunkhead among them. And one showed up with a Mega-Venti cup of Starbucks. Soul mates!

Countess Mx2: Happy pills and champagne in my bathrobe (so I don't have to get changed for bed)?

"Times New Roman? Seriously??"

Er, better than Wingdings?

"Will I actually fulfill my promise to slap the next person who says 'I know coffee is so bad for me - I'm trying to kick the habit?'"

Throw soggy pork at 'em!

That you've manned up and you're going is good enough. I fully expect you to report back on exactly how the leg bone's connected to the, foot bone:)

I've never understood what "trying to quit" meant. I'm trying NOT to quit . . . you name it. And now I need coffee.

Go get 'em, Baroness! Good for you!

Count Cormac: Oh, to be in a street brawl with you: "Louie, you bring the baseball bats - I'll bring the soggy pork..."

Countess FF: What I know as of today - there are things called "tendons" and "ligaments" that are somehow integral to making the whole Hokey Pokey thing possible. Must go study...

Countess NNG: Yes, M'aam!!

Countess Foolery: I love you and your coffee-acheivin' ways.
