The systolic goes up. The diastolic goes down.

Blast, my BP's back up again - 145/95 or so. The doctor has recommended no long haul flights and twice weekly aerobic exercise, plus I'm going to go back on the 24 hour blood pressure monitoring thing for a day. I think I'll be joining the gym so I can do half hour fake bike rides in the pollution and traffic free confines of my gym. Bah and bah again. What happened to that good reading from back in October? At least I've got access to LJ at work again, not that I'll be using it much ...

I'm sorry, does this sound a bit like a Monty Python sketch?

TOLEDO, Ohio - Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton suggested Monday she'll press on with the campaign after Tuesday's crucial primaries, arguing that momentum is on her side despite 11 straight losses to rival Sen. Barack Obama.

"I'm just getting warmed up," Clinton told reporters, looking ahead to a busy day of campaign events in Ohio and Texas where polls show a close race ahead of Tuesday's primaries.

What's next, "Tis only a flesh wound?" Get real, woman!

Anyway, off to see Gentlemen Prefer Blondes now - see you later!

A red hot evening: Marilyn and Szechuan peppercorns

We had a great evening tonight. First, shadowdaddy and I went to the NFT to see Gentlemen Prefer Blondes with souldier_blue. While in years past I might have hated this movie for being overbearing and overacted, nowadays I found it witty and funny and a complete blast. I really think I need a black, haltertop, backless pantsuit like Jane Russell was wearing during the "men in flesh colored swimsuit" routine - I basically wanted to run into the film and steal every outfit they had on in every scene. It was FAB, darling.

Afterwards we had a good appetite going and we drug Miss I with us to Snazz Szechuan for some killer food. As her lips burned and tingled, she admitted that yes, it was delicious, and yes, you could taste all of the different flavors through the peppy hot spices. We wiped out two of the four plates of food but slowed down midway through the "fragrant spicy beef slices" and then just sat around smacking our lips and going yum yum. God, it was great, and it was wonderful to go there with someone who could really appreciate it.

Anyway, great night, great food, great company, great movie. I did this day right, and it does feel DONE.
