"I just don't want to deal with this right now. I'm taking a holiday from dealing, happily vacationing in the land of not coping."

some lady was just telling the atm it needed a software upgrade. personally, i think if you find yourself talking to machines the atm software isn't the problem. it's odd, i've been thinking about machines that last a long time because i might get a treadmill and i want to get a good one. i did the consumer reports thing and wow, they're expensive. but as matt says i can always sell it if i rejoin the bonbons crowd. he's such a smartypants.

i was torn between the gym and the treadmill for awhile, but it's just not realistic to think i'll get up an hour earlier to drive an hour and then workout. a y membership would be more economical, but in a town i live an hour from? on vacation or a snow day, even on the weekends, it wouldn't be convenient. i hate it when the expensive thing makes sense. more sense than jogging with a rifle.

i'm excited about maybe getting one. i have no idea where i'll put it, but i think it could be a good thing for me. i'm pretty proud of how much i used my stepper since i bought it. i used it so much matt has to re-weld it. nothing fatal, it just squeaks. i'm really happy knowing that i didn't waste the money or the space i gave the thing. i grew up with so many dusty exercise machines i expected to keep up the family tradition. it gives me a little more confidence in buying something so expensive. a security blanket.

there is a very weird dude here fixing our copier, offering us candy, and telling us about his wife's extra painful labor with their first child. i generally think friday the thirteenth is what you make of it, but we've had some crazy folks in here today. it makes me wish we had a horror to watch tonight. something where copier guys and insane bank customers get locked together in a supply cabinet and have to eat eachother for survival. not that i've put much thought into it.

A treadmill can be a very good investment. I hope you find a very good one at a great price.
