Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)
Walt Whitman, Song of Myself
How last week felt, in general…
I finished my latest read, Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships, and it is definitely going on my “favorites” list. It’s been a while since I’ve dog-eared, underlined and highlighted so much text in a pleasure read. It was educational and funny as hell. For example, in the segment on why the external scrotum of the human male suggests sperm competition,
“A scrotum is like a spare refrigerator in the garage just for beer. If you’ve got a spare beer fridge, you’re probably the type who expects a party to break out at any moment. You want to be prepared.”
I think, just like with health, when it comes to relationships and sex people forget to question the information and the norms they’ve been “prescribed”. This book does a great job of that in a really interesting and entertaining way. Read it. And listen to the Savage Lovecast. Yay sex!
So what is, “rebusacassafram”? Apparently, it’s the answer when you don’t know the question (my week, in summary). You’ll have to listen to this episode of Freakonomics for the deets.

I don’t have much to report, really. Looking forward to see what this week brings, in and out of the ‘nasium. Successfully upped my walking this week…
… but quickly realized that my goal (5 miles/day) is just not gonna happen. Maybe when I switch jobs and move downtown and walk to work like a really urban dweller… The sleep continues to be on point and so far my skin isn’t showing any signs of reacting to the protein powder. Win. Win.
