"This old world well don't it make you wanna think damn"

I did a serious revamp of my UserInfo.  Pithy and therefore hopefully new-user friendly, though it feels fantastically boring to me.  [Ari will sympathize with the fact that I can't figure out how to tag this entry for this piece of content -- some variation on "self: lj: userinfo"?  Oh, this reminds me, though, that I was gonna look up Semagic and tagging.] 

Problem 1: When you delete tags, Semagic doesn't delete them from its list, even when you click Update.  (Sidenote: It will update renamed tags appropriately, though.)
Solution: Go to: Program Files --> Semagic --> taglist.txt
You can manually delete individual tags or just delete the entire contents of the file and the next time you tell Semagic to Update tags it will rewrite the file with the most recent LJ list.

Problem 2: Using more than username in Semagic, Semagic will give you the tags for all the usernames regardless of which one you're currently using.
Solution: Create separate .txt files for each username, like so: taglist.username.txt
(I only use Semagic for this journal, so I can't actually vouch for this.)


I opted not to sign up for the EDS class, 'cause I realized that between ASL and CAUMC I would be attending all of three evenings worth of class.


Jessica and Bianca had to have seen my dogtag this morning when we were talking, and they didn't say anything about it.  (I had been concerned that it would clash with the professional image we're supposed to be presenting -- not that I think queer != professional, but that imprinted dog tags != professional.)

Mary Alice loved my dogtag (and knew immediately that it was re: "Don't ask, don't tell").  I had lovely chatting with her and Greg.

Greg said that on Sunday(?) he and his wife got out at Arlington and walked around and going up either Boylston or Newbury, they passed a church with a big pride banner and she was confused and, recalling our conversation, Greg explained that yes there are a few churches that are accepting/affirming of gay people.  I said there are in fact a lot.

Nicole and I chatted briefly about our weekends and she said she volunteered at an AIDS clinic Saturday morning and got invited to have a spot on the float (but it was like 11am and she had things to do that day, so she declined, though she did end up seeing part of the parade).  When I mentioned how my usual Sunday is church-laundry-church, she said, "You're all-church all-the-time, you're going straight to heaven -- you're on the fast lane."  I said a lot of it is queer church, so probably there are plenty of people who don't think I'm going straight to heaven :)


I had a headache all day, so I was gonna do the elliptical 'cause that's low-impact, but at 5:30 they were all in use.  The students are supposed to be all gone; how is this possible?  So I did the treadmill at 5mph, and it felt like a comfortable jogging pace, but I was so not up for it.  A couple times I took it down to 4mph for ten or twenty seconds of fast walking, but at 14min I ultimately quit.  I've done the half hour multiple times before, so I was telling myself that I could do it, but pushing myself that much just wasn't happening.  An elliptical had opened up, so I did that for 5min, but then I quit that, too.  Going home and taking drugs and lying down seemed the healthiest thing I could do for myself.

I took a quick shower first, obviously, and they've replaced the old scale where you move the weight bars with a digital one, so on a whim I stepped on it.  The first CAUMC game night I went to, at Mike&Meredith's, they had an electronic scale in their bathroom.  The weight I registered here is ~10lb less than that.  This makes me laugh first of all because at group last Thursday, Sue asked me, "Have you lost weight?" and I said truthfully that I stepped on a scale like once in the past 8 years.  Second of all I am a bit weirded out 'cause I don't feel like I'm any smaller than I have been since that game night (early November).  I've been feeling like my pants are fitting looser, but I don't know how much that is wear-and-tear on the waistbands.

I'd love to get rid of some of this tummy flab, but I'm really gymming it up to make my legs, lungs, etc. stronger.  However, numbers in the context of gymming it up seem to bring out my OCD tendencies or something.

Online calculators are unwieldy, yo.  But I think that moves the BMI of my 5foot 1+inch frame from 26 to 24 (thus moving me from "overweight" to "normal").  I want to insert an eloquent rant about how stupid and useless the BMI is (muscle weighs more than fat, external appearance can be so misleading as to how well someone's internal system is functioning, etc.) but I don't really have one.  So instead I'm just going to continue doing cardio work, and starting my workouts with weight work ('cause I tend not have the energy for them after a cardio set), and continuing to be conscious of what I'm eating, and trying to get a full night's sleep consistently... 'cause I want this body to last me a long long time.
