snapshots of an idle mind

ohhh my aching head

Filed under: Uncategorized — sassinak @ 5:11 pm

which should imply what happened to me last night.

see i had a huge lunch yesterday and then not really any dinner (pretzels and dark chocolate holla!) and I cleaned a house and taught a couple of privates and then I decided to go climbing. i won’t mention that I was too tired and sore to be there because of a combination of 5 laps (round trip, up AND down) at the end of the night monday and the goddess’ torture class on saturday which opened up a new space in my spine.

one i suspect has never moved or at least hasn’t moved since my accident. i mean it fucking hurt to let that spot open up you guys like i can’t even put into words. still on monday i went climbing anyway because i was so sore and i figured why not? maybe i can stretch some stuff out.

yeah no.

so tuesday i was kinda wimpy in all of my classes and i didn’t really do anything. and then i got stood up by a client! and it’s extra insulting this one is because i knew him. (how funny is this… doctor refers me a guy that i had a massive crush on when we were in air cadets together… and tells me the guy is still hot!) but we figured it out, we caught up, we did the gossip about people i used to know thing and then buddy doesn’t show. that’s like EXTRA rude. especially because i didn’t have dinner at my cousin’s house because of him. (they’re too busy anyway but still…)

so wimpy tuesday. followed by wimpy wednesday because i don’t have to exercise when i teach privates, i just have to demonstrate sometimes and by last night i’m even more sore than i was on monday and i can’t even get my freaking hamstrings to stretch. (and yes, when i’m warm i can touch my head to the floor between my knees without bending them… yes i’m that flexible… yes it’s just wrong that i’m not having sex with someone and playing bedroom games with that flexibility… yes murph that was just for you.) So i figured that going climbing would actually help.

I promised myself that i would be gentle and not do too much and i mostly stuck to that. First I went and did some light pilates under the lead climbing walls [shut up I was not JUST there to look at the eye candy]{okay a little} and then i did traverses… but i forced myself to go really slowly and to try moving from my hip instead of my shoulder. And i forced myself not to use the same old same old holds and moves.

So I fell off a lot and worked pretty hard. And then I went over and worked a problem that’s been kicking my butt for a couple of weeks… and then i had a very nice conversation with a very nice man which may have included some electricity. Hard to say, I’m notorious for getting that wrong…

So then… yeah… i called up othercat and said ‘i don’t want coffee I want beer’ and he said “okay” and then foolish us had FOUR pints in two hours. And not enough water. Hell I even ordered food you guys and still… *shaking head*

I was fucking hammered off my ever loving ass on FOUR pints of beer. That’s practically non italian or something. They’re going to drum me out of the italian union if they hear about this. Seriously my dad will disown me and there will be full on rioting in the streets.

four pints… damm.

and i crashed too, i had to kick othercat out and pour my shot back in the bottle because i was too drunk to smell it let alone drink it.

so i slept until NOON today and drank a ton of water and still, still i have a headache. that’s just uncalled for. and also explains why this is not one of my deep and insightful posts… and why there is no thought to provoke.

my brain is on strike. it wants pot and it wants water and it’s thinking it may be willing to eat in an hour or so. maybe.

damm you guys my aching head!


  1. It’s good for ya Sass, clears out the pores. Not the Italian rioting, more the wacky boozing.

    And congrats on teaching your privates!
    Yet another draw for the men of Toronto!

  2. oh dude… i totally missed that makeability of that pun… but that’s okay, everyone missed the pun in the title of my previous post as well.

    ohhh man i can’t believe i have a hangover, how embarassing.

  3. sass: I got both puns — the intended and the unintended — and just relished them internally.

    sorry to hear your head hurts and wish I had a solution. I would recommend either: a little hair of the dog that bit ya … or more sleep.

    i’m actually going back to bed. I don’t need to be up for another 1.5 hours, so fuck it! DZER wil doze.

  4. dzer: i’m glad to know someone did, i thought that pun was awesome.

    i don’t think i’m up for beer and i did sleep for ten or eleven hours. othercat thinks that one of the pints was bad and since it had that sorta tinny taste i’m thinking he may have had a point.

    should have sent them back.

    funny thing, we were at a pub called ‘hair of the dog’

    sleep well!

  5. Sass, where is Hair of the Dog? I think I may have been there the last time I was in Toronto, back in 1999…

  9. yeah, you totally opened yourself up for private carnage.

    Pardon the pun there.

    So, you’re teaching my privates next? taking orders maybe?

    Sorry to hear about your head. I won’t tell the local italians.. knowing them they’d come all the way to Canada just to kick yer ass out…

  16. well fair enough… but those of us from this neck of the woods think of most of texas as buttfuck nowhere so methinks that makes us even!

    you know what it is? i’m not willing to wait until i have a man in my life to live it… so if i want to try something or go somewhere id o it… that’s all. it’s huge for sure but simple too.

  17. see THAT is what makes u AWESOME!

    i think i will use u and lil and EN and buttah and casti… (cant pronounce that nic??) and -rm and murph and dxer and whoever else is around here… for role models … its a new beginning coming this year.. and im tired of the same old funk and shit!

    maybe i too can move to the big city!!!

    (i live in ruralish area.. resort town between big citys) and YES buttfuck=texas.. u are ever soo astute too!

  18. dude by astute what you mean to say is ‘oh you read my profile’ :)

    i live by cliches and i’ve found a few good ones over the years. all of my wisdom:
    .it’s not the things you do in life you regret it’s the things you don’t do
    .do something that scares you every day
    .why not?
    .no one will go to your grave for you
    .do more of everything
    .today is a good day to die
    .i don’t know shit
    and recently added:
    what will i think when i’m 80?

    yeah that’s about it. (oh, and move across the country/world at least once)

    do you want to move to the city? it’s fun but there’s a lot to be said for the country too.

    wow. i’m a role model. (castufari… it used to be casti but i couldn’t type it right ever *grin* and i said castu so much that he changed it.)

    Comment by sassinak — October 28, 2005 @ 1:11 am | Reply

  19. LOL sass.. im old.. ive moved across the country twice.. and then came back…
    yeah id love to move back to houston … i loved being anonymous in that huge ass city!

    most ppl crave to be known or something.. i dont.. i crave to be unknown .. im sure there is an issue in that somewhere…

    hell yes u make a good role model.. so do most of the ppl i read with on here.. ive read u guys for about 6 months or so.. but i would never comment tho… LOL shy?.. i dont know.. i just like intelligent ppl…

    thanks for ur words to me tonight.. i enjoy them as i do the wit and charm u guys seem to exude daily…

  20. started out as casti3d, then castiNT, then casti. sass kept saying castu so I changed it as a joke and it stuck. during times of mental illness/too much to drink i would also be “CaptCastu”. Ahoy! That was, shall we say, annoying?

    Sug, it’s easier to ask forgiveness than permission.

  21. hee
    capn castu god i nearly forgot about that!

    sugarpunk: i get the impression we’re a similar age? why did you move to the country if you love the city so much?

    i’m so honoured at the quality of people that read my blog i really am. i’ve gotten comments on here that were longer than the post!

    wow… i’m a role model. that’s freaking awesome. i want to be known but i also want to be anonymous… that’s the nice thing about the city, you can be whichever you please…

    keep commenting willya?

  25. Yup, its in the air.

    I got overly buzzed off a six pack last night during a poker game that lasted until 2:00.

    Needless to say, I didn’t hear my alarm this morning. What? I was only 2 hours late to work.

    To add a little insult to injury. I bougt my traditional, cafe mocha before I came in and dropped it when I got out of the car. I got like two whole delicious sips.

    My head hurts too.

  26. buttah: yeah you’ve been there a few times… course you’re just the right age for it too… i was much drunker in my 20s than i am now :)

    so yeah, tonight i will feel for you!

    i still think it was a bad pint, othercat had the same headache and i was way drunker than he was.

    lsd: did you at least win money?

    you’re the boss, you can be late if you want to [suddenly in my head i’m hearing ‘it’s my company and i can cry if i want to, cry if i want to…] *snicker*

    sucks about the mocha.. i hate coffee abuse!
