I had a pretty quiet one today. We lolled around on the front porch, listening to the JJJ hottest 100 and complaining about the music taste of the kids today, ha ha. Triple J is weird, it’s like there is this generic sound and it’s the same now as it was 10 years ago. It’s not that the yoof are listening to stuff I hate, just that it’s stuff I’m bored with.
We kept trying to guess the bands and I was like it’s the Beatles or it’s Led Zeppelin. The only bands/artists I knew were Regina Spector, Soko and the White Stripes (who I really haven’t liked since their first couple of albums even though I hate being THAT person).
At one point I guessed Snow Patrol and the band was actually Muse (lucky my son wasn’t here or he’d KILL me for that). I actually have a theory that everyone is a secret Snow Patrol fan but they don’t want to admit it. I developed this theory cos my sister and I both secretly (or not so secretly now) have that Snow Patrol song “Run” on our ipods. I call it the dead people in TV shows songs cos they seem to play it every time someone dies.
After that, I thought I’d better get my lazy butt to the gym. I did a huge weights workout + some running on the treadie between sets. My gym isn’t air conditioned – what do you expect for $4 a visit – so I was sweating like a pig when I finished. I love to sweat at the gym; it makes me feel like I’ve achieved something. I also polished off a 1.5 lt bottle of water.
Got home and cooked dinner. I’d got some freshly made pasta at the market the other day. I asked for pumpkin gnocchi but they gave me tortellini and the filling was a bit tasteless but I made the most awesome pasta sauce ever – a combination of heaps of vegies including fresh corn, chicken mince, a bottle of tomato sauce (the Italian stuff not like ketchup), low fat ricotta and a decent dollop of pesto. I am very much satied now.
