Friday Fun! (Kindle Cover, TRX, Karaoke)

Hello my lovely readers!  There’s not too terribly much to report this week.  Last weekend Boston suffered a torrential downpour that destroyed my ipod.  Sad day.  I’m a bit poor right now, so I ended up bidding for a used one on ebay and winning.  Here’s hoping it actually works when it gets here.  *knocks on wood*

My kindle cover also broke this week.  The doohickey that holds the kindle in place got bent out of shape (no, I have no idea how).  I called Amazon, and they overnight shipped me a new one for free! Awesome. Sauce.  I will say, I think my kindle cover got a lot more use in its six months of life than the designers perhaps anticipated, lol.

Last weekend I tried out a new recipe–walnut-encrusted baked tofu with spinach l’orange.  It was….a bit more time-consuming than I was anticipating, but also delicious and filling.  I got three meals out of it (one dinner and two lunches).  Not too shabby for the relative cheapness of the ingredients.

My trainer had me try out TRX this week.  There are these straps hanging from the ceiling that you use to help you work out your muscles using your own weight and gravity as resistance.  It was super-duper fun to do push-ups and such in the air, I have to say.  I really loved it.  I’m half-tempted to join one of the gym’s TRX teams now.

I also went out to karaoke with my friend Jill this week.  It was tons of fun, as karaoke generally is.  Although this single lady did not see a single guy she was interested in, the crowd was a good karaoke crowd.  Everyone was good-natured, supportive, and well, tipsy.  Plus there were plenty of people buying drinks for us, which is always a plus. 😉

Happy weekends all!

    Glad to hear you had a good week. The spinach and tofu thing sound really really good! Also, TRX sounds fun!

      My week was excellent! Weekend was kind of dull though, which is unusual for me, haha.

    Happy Friday! Awesome customer service from Amazon! And TRX sounds cool.

      Yeah, I was super-impressed at the customer service. Apparently they’re really into providing excellent customer service for the kindle to help with its spread.

    I had no idea what TRX was until you explained it! It’s sounds like a great workout though. I’m thinking of joining a gym when summer ends. I’ll have to see if they have it.

      Aw, thanks for the return visit, Chris! I just joined the gym in January, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Having a specific place to go to to work out motivates me far more than running outside/doing yoga in my livingroom ever did.
