Early morning thoughts….

Ah, the joys of morning.
Now, don’t get me worng, I’m not a morning person, however, sometimes I enjoy the morning rituals.
I get into the office, after having a good shower & shave, feeling good, and head over to the kitchen to brew a pot of mocha coffee.
After that’s been started, I grab a large cup (a l Friends) and fill it with milk.
Head back to my office, sit down and fill the full cup with cornflakes.
Start checking my emails, sign in to Messengers (7 in all, thanks to Trillian!) and get grabbed to discuss something or other by someone.
Open Winamp, and grab a nice morning station, like LiveIreland, playing some beautiful music to work to.

It’s too early for the fit to hit the shan, but be assured that this will happen, and probably more than once before mid-day.

On the ride here, I was thinking (as I am prone to do) about what abilities I no longer have since my childhood. I can’t dive into a pool headfirst anymore. I’ve forgotten how. No more hand/head-stands, and actually putting my foot in my mouth. I can’t touch my toes anymore, as my hamstrings are WAY too tight.
I’m sure there’s more, but these struck me as abilities I wish I still had.

    Ja, biting your toenails is fun. I can still do that, but I can’t do the splits three ways anymore. *sigh*

    I don’t think I’ve lost any of the abilities I’ve had as a child. I can still do a hand stand if payed enough and I can touch my toes (or my knees with my nose) and I am all around very flexible. Though I have not been working out lately so I am loosing flexibility. I will get it back though, once I have more time to invest.

    pull all-night programming sessions like I used to. Never mind getting by on six or less hours of sleep. I can’t climb trees as nimbly any more! WHAAAA!

    Admit it, morning rituals are just an easy prop, to postpone the actual “handling the morning” bits…. 😀

    I’m still pretty flexible–especially for my age–and I know I can touch my toes. I can probably get my foot to my mouth, but not behind my head any more. Headstands are a no-no–the last time, I nearly needed a cervical collar. Diving is no problem, either.

    Take yoga to improve your flexibility.

    My morning ritual involves tea. Not neccesarily caffeine, just tea. And breakfast, if possible. And a long, hot shower.
