speaking of the company I keep...
went to see the nutcracker ballet on saturday with these lovely ladies (aren't my friends purrrty?). and in case you were wondering, as a friend and I were, male "ballerinas" wear something called a "dance belt". curious? look it up. wikipedia has a lovely photo to accompany the description. (read: if you have a strong gag reflex, it might be a better idea to stay away)
anddd a health factoid: caffeine can boost endurance. not strength or timing, but endurance. interesting, eh? I thought so.
my calendar says there's only 12 days til christmas. can this be true??
