Relative Dimensions in Space

Work: Have you ever tried using Google Maps to find the distance between two places? It is our standard source that we use for calculating mileage reimbursement at my workplace. Most of the time, it's very good, but every once in a while, it goes wonky.

Today, fir instance, it gave the distance between two places as 15.2 miles. Five minutes later, when I looked up the same mileage (I'd forgotten the earlier figure), it gave me 15.5 miles. When I went back over the travel form to proofread and check it, I noticed the two different mileages.

It is really annoying, because higher-ups quality-check my work on travel, and this stuff goes to Accounting in the state capital. I don't like being off. Not much I can do about it, though. *sighs*

Weight: I weighed myself yesterday, and the scale said 148 lbs. This is six pounds more than I weighed last August. Not good. So I told Mark that I just wanted soup in the evenings now, since I apparently don't get enough exercise during the day to lose the weight. I'd go walking or jogging after work, but it is so infernally hot outside, that it's difficult. It's like a steam bath out there. Heat does weird things to my body, and I have a TMS reason for not wanting to do strenuous exercise out in the heat any distance from a restroom. :P

I've mostly cut out the gaming goodies and stopped eating the Saturday spaghetti dinner. I'm going to have to start eating only salad at restaurants, now--and I hate that. I love restaurant food; I just wish they would serve me about a fourth of what the menu says.

Movie: Tonight, Mark, Tom, and I are going to see the Get Smart movie. I miss Don Adams in the role. The guy playing Maxwell Smart in the movie is too...handsome. A guy who is that good-looking should not be an incompetent twit.

Not a whole lot else going on. Just waiting for 4pm to come. :)


It's your meal you're paying for. When you place your order at a restaurant, just tell them to pack some of it to go before they bring your order to you. You might get a few odd looks, but hey - who cares? YOU are the customer and they want a tip. ;-)

A guy who is that good-looking should not be an incompetent twit.

Oooh, you should watch The Office! He's in it and very much an incompetent twit (albeit a lovable one).

Personally, I think it's kind of refreshing for a good-looking person in a movie to be an incompetent twit. I know plenty of good-looking people in real life who are incompetent twits.

I was just talking to my mom about her weight--she went to the doctor the other day, who took her height as 5'10" and weight as 180 lbs. Mom and I both know this isn't right. For one thing, I'm 5'11", and mom is marginally taller than I am. For another thing, I weigh slightly less than mom, and I don't even weigh 180 lbs. I'm at least 190.

I mean, yes, mom's been trying to lose some weight lately, but I don't think she could have dropped over ten pounds in a week.

I don't know if the doctor just wasn't paying attention or what. Even if you aren't satisfied with your weight, you kind of want the doctor of all people to get it right, you know?
