Quick Playlist Post

Not much to say today. Work is haywire as usual and I'm a little out of it anyway. I had a whole whiney post written in my head about how my hands and feet have blisters all over them (thanks, climbing and circle runs, respectively), but without gross pictures (it hurts more than it looks hands are so pink!!) it fell flat before it even made it to the keyboard.


Tonight's playlist is the result of looking for upbeat love songs that could tell a story and only managing to find songs about slutty women and one-night stands. Go figure. I know there are more love songs out there, but they're not in my current circulation. I'm mostly inspired by Drive By by Train and Ass Back Home (which is more romantic than the title implies) by Gym Class Heros. I have an idea of what I want to do with them, but it's not happening this week. Maybe next week.

Anyway, here's this week's list:

Ohio (Come Back to Texas) - Bowling For Soup
Drive By  -  Train
Centerfold (Apres Ski Mix)  -  Captain Jack
SOS  -  Rihanna
I Know You Want Me  -  (Calle Ocho) Pitbull
Wind It Up  -  Kat Deluna
Dirty Dancer (Feat. Usher)  -  Enrique Iglesias
Boys of Summer  -  DJ Sammy
My First Kiss (feat. Ke$ha)  -  3OH!3
A Girl Like You  -  Edwyn Collins
Ass Back Home (feat. Neon Hitch)  -  Gym Class Heroes
Candyman  -  Christina Aguilera
Naked and Famous  -  Presidents Of The U.S.A./Presidents of the United States of America

I'm probably not going to play that last one, not because it's wildly inappropriate (it's not, it's just funny), but because I'm saving up some of these gems for another 90s ride. I'll probably put Carrie Newcomer on the anchor spot instead. 

The ride is going to be deceptively simple intervals again. You know the one, 10 seconds hard, 50 easy, 20 hard, 40 easy, etc etc. I wish 100 seconds were easier to count on a hands clock. At this point in my week though, I'm not sure I can handle that kind of higher math while working out. 

Maybe I'll make tonight the world's first ever sleep n spin class. 

On a more uplifting note, I passed the Star 3 exam earlier this week, so now I'm an "elite" instructor who's put in a lot of hours and given Mad Dogg a lot of money. Go me.

This weekend I get to go to CO for my interview at UCD. I absolutely adore the school and location. I'm actually bracing myself for heartbreak because I know I'm going to love it out there.

However, Denver has some pretty awful breed specific legislation against pitbulls, which translate to "if you so much as drive through our county with a pit in your car, we'll kill it and arrest you." So they probably aren't going to throw a parade for our little derp machine.

A real menace, that one.

So unfortunately, there's already a pretty major strike against the school. I'm going to check around with shelters in the area and see where would be safe for us to have her though, in case they offer me lots of money (ha!) or something, but barring a financial miracle and a safe place to let the dumb one roam free, it's not looking good. Boo, Denver. Boo.

The weekend's not totally lost though - I get to see my baby brother, who I haven't seen in over a year!

On that note, back to work and such. Who's riding with me tonight?
