So fixing together a 60 bucks computer table from scratch on Friday night proved to be a sweaty yet strangely therapeutic two hour affair that ultimately gave a sense of amateurish accomplishment.
Never mind that one hole was too big for the allotted screw and I had to hunt through my dad's toolbox for wood chips or that I nearly pulverised my thumb while trying to hammer a nail in a particularly inconvenient position. The table's ready, now to do the homework and determine the desired components for the computer.
Building up the components..*Deep Breath*
Getting there...the end is in sight.
2 Hours later...no more DIYs for a loooong time.
Other than the perfunctory Good Friday and Easter Sunday services which were standard (ie: boring), the rest of the weekend was pretty much spent on the three new Wii games I bought on impulse on Friday too.
After all, Naruto was the game I almost always only played on the woefully neglected wii. I must confess that the retail therapy didn't disappoint even if it did set me back a hefty 259 bucks. Though exercising just became a whole lot less of a chore, so I'd say it's worth it.
Started at 11pm and only stopped at 1.30am, after I felt a little faint from all the frenzied jumping, stomping and wild hand swings. Attempting a 192 beat per minute Karma Chameleon at 1 am in the morning is not advisable. Still, it was the best workout I'd had for a long time and while tiring, remained incredibly fun. It didn't matter that I felt I was cursed with two left feet, my highest grade then being a dismal D, though I'm happy to report I've a total of 5 'A's now. Woot.
Good repertoire of songs with more which are unlockable plus the workout mode which calculates how much calories you've burnt based on your weight and lets you set a self-determined target for the session. If they had this in the 80s, maybe Jane Fonda would have gone out of business.
So many things to do, so little time. And the next two weeks are looking to be positively hellish for work due to two upcoming trials. Bah. Well at least I'll be able to jive those calories away.
