Nectar Acquired. Resuming Functionality. Please wait.
I think I mentioned that my coworker and I are going for a walk around the building during our so-called "lunch hour." I neither leave for lunch nor take an hour to do so, but whatever. Anyway, our building is huge. HUGE. It's like a Giant E, except that it has 7 arms instead of the three on a typical E. The top two floors also have a connecting corridor through the middle, so it's like a giant grid upstairs. We walk every corridor of the top two floors up and down and then return to the office. It takes us about 40 minutes. It's not a lot, but it's more than the nothing I was doing before. Unfortunately, I keep forgetting to bring different shoes for these walks, so I've been taking these rather brisk walks in my dress shoes, which are 1" heals, give or take. They're not high, but they're really not meant for long-distance walking.

So now I have BLISTERS on my feet from today's walk and I'm not enjoying it. I am, however, enjoying that I feel like I raised my heartrate up for a while and my calf muscles are burning, so maybe they worked a little bit extra because of the shoes.

Boy am I going to enjoy sleeping tonight! Of course, part of that is that I spent WAY too much time cleaning last night and only got about 3.5 hours of sleep. Argh.

Er, what kind of an E has seven arm?

I was just trying to explain that it has several arms, instead of being one big huge rectangle.

It looks like this on the main level:

But from above looking down at the whole building it looks like:

***************
* *
***************

***************

Except that those are really lousy drawings. Crud. It's hard to explain!

oh dammit all!

It took away my extra spaces, so now you can't see the corridor I was trying to describe.

DAMN HTML!

that looks like some sort of Cthulu - "E" The E with Four extra segments!

Great, now I am going to have nightmares about mutant letters chaseing me in 1" heels.. Er what? Oh look, there is Neil.

Re: Comb the Desert!

Hey, that's a much better analogy than mine.

thank you. That was a much better answer than mine.
gwiii From: gwiii Date: March 30th, 2005 06:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
um.. Wouldn't that be eight arms?
magid From: magid Date: March 30th, 2005 06:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
No, 'cause they need an arm to stand on!

Where did you get that picture/avatar? I've seen 3 other people with similar ones and I'd like to create my own.

Good for you, exercising!

(I have a rule about buying shoes; they have to be comfortable enough to walk a couple of miles in. I mean, even pretty shoes will get walked in on Shabbat/ yom tov...)

I live two blocks from my synagogue. ;)

Actually, I have issues with shoes, period. I have a hard time finding comfortable ones. As it happens, these shoes are quite comfortable and I can walk a fair distance in them. But they've loosened up a bit, so sometimes my foot slides around in it a bit, which makes them difficult to do a forty minute walk in.

Sitting for an hour or so has made me feel a lot better, though.

Ah, the disadvantages of Cambridge; I'm half a mile from one shul, almost three-quarters of a mile from the other. And that's considered pretty close :-).

Glad you're feeling better (and I hope the blisters aren't much).

I hate shoe shopping, myself. I have big, wide feet, and can't handle heels much at all. Nothing technically tricky, but it's still a challenge. I'm glad I have a job where I don't have to have office shoes...

We lived 2.5 miles from our shul until recently, and honestly, I made it to shul a lot more often back then.
