* Yesterday, I went to my new gym for the first time (after deliberation, I went with the Fitness First).
I met with a trainer, who led me through a relatively short conditioning workout, which still kicked my ass. Especially the BOSU ball pushups and cable push-pulls. I was a little dizzy on the drive home, though a good part of that was due to my...

* New haircut today. Somehow, a few months had slipped by since my last one, and my hair was really getting in my eyes. I hate that. So I decided to go a little shorter than was probably wise, but it's summer and it'll grow back (unlike with so many other men my age):
The downside of the haircut and the lack of glasses is that I don't look as much as my WeeMee avatar any more:
But I can live with that and the other downsides (e.g. will lose any future staring contests, and when napping, my eyes stay part-open, which freaks people out).
Actually, I'm so used to seeing myself wearing glasses that I prefer how I look with them on, but contacts are just so much more useful in certain endeavors -- sports, shooting, the physical act of love, etc.
Also, I can do a proper *facepalm* now. And, I can wear cool sunglasses, instead of wearing clip-ons. So it's worth the occassional dry eye and itchiness (my eyes are still adjusting).
