Damn you, Rocco, you kicked my butt!

Now that I've reorganized and started back on the road to following a business plan, I decided it was also time to whip my fat butt back into shape! I've gained over 30 pounds in the past year and I'm literally making myself sick. I haven't felt 'healthy' in over a year, since I stopped my regular 5 day a week workouts. My back is always killing me.
Enter Rocco, personal trainer and recent Albuquerque resident. I found him here on Duke City Fix, in…

APS & Mesa del Sol: Has the Wedding Been Called Off?

NOB HILL--It must have been a real stunner: last week's APS board meeting where Forest Covington's Michael Daly threatened APS with breaking away and forming their own district if they didn't get two schools built out there within three years. After all, Mesa del Sol has a population of zero...and several nearby south valley schools like Navajo Elementary are already… Continue

First leg of Monticello

I-25 bridge

Summer's NOT Done




Got this shot out the car window in downtown 'Burque this evening.
All indications are that summer is NOT done for this guy...
What about you?
Show us your pix, before the ice and snow arrives (or the pumpkins ripen on the vine).

Cloud Watching

As the late summer arrives I find that I love to watch the cloud formations.

Big, thick clouds full of promise and puffy fecundity. The Albuquerque box might be our most famous weather occurance but I still like my clouds



Marsden Hartley, a contemporary of Georgia O'kefffe, spent some quallity… Continue

Consolation: good coffee and good art

My day started a bit precipitously. At 6:45 my husband called to tell me that he forgot his work key and didn't have time to ride his bike home and back before his first meeting and he needed me to bring it to him. My brain was mush, 'you need me to come pick you up?' I said. 'No', he said, 'I need you to bring me the key.' 'Oh yeah, that's what I meant, I'll be right there.' I usually wake up around 7:00 anyway so it wasn't that early for me,… Continue

Filling Up at the Filling Station

The first weekend after Labor Day is always bittersweet for me, marking the psychological transition from summer into autumn. Mornings are cooler, there’s a hint of green chile in the air, and leaves begin to acquire a tarnish of gold.



On a personal note, it means that I get to reacquaint myself with the Sunport and life as a commuter traversing the friendly skies. This weekend was my first weekend… Continue

Fat Tire Cyle Shop

This shop on Montano is the only bike shop in the area that has snubbed me repeatedly when I go in there. I've been to nearly all the shops in the are: ABC, 2-wheeled drive, Coop, High Desert, Cycle World, Cycle cave, and Performance Bike. This one is the least helpful. I've heard similar comments from cycling friends of mine.



This weekend, my husband I walked our two bikes in there and they weren't all that busy, but one of the employees actually stepped around us to ignore us,… Continue

Fei's Health Cafe

Fei's health cafe. It's about 2 doors down from 20 carrots on Central, between Buena Vista and Yale.

It's unusual food, but I liked it a lot. It's not often that I can order with impunity from a menu and get vegan food. When I can get vegan food, I prefer it, although I'll go veggie if I have to. The "special seitan" is the best I've ever eaten and I was practically hanging over the counter to try to get her to tell me how she makes it. She just giggled and blushed and said that it's about… Continue

disney world

i love the fact that you can escape reality. i love where you slip into a world of magic...its nothing but excitement. the first bus ride to the park i get butterflies in my stomach. when you pull up to whatever park in walt disney world even though you have been there before, you still dont know what to expect. when you push your way through the metal thats keeping you from officially being inside the park, you butterflies turn to excitment. as you walk faster to see the people with smile on… Continue

Actually, my real blog is at http://athenadiaries.blogspot.com.

I'm using this to write opinions and reviews of places in this area that most people who read my blog wouldn't care about.

Otakumex summary

I posted a short summary at Ani-nouto. Pretty good. I forgot to mention, the lady who ran the Immersion panel was a big fan of Azuma, which had been panned in my comments and in other DCF threads for bad smell, poor service, etc. Go figure.

Otakumex

The new Albuquerque anime convention "Otakumex" opens today in Embassy Suites. I'm thinking if I should go. Their websive (http://www.otakumex.com/) bears the tell-tale marks of disorganization (e.g. no panel schedule), which drive me away. Heck it does not even say when the registration is open. But what's a man to do. I don't want to drive to LA for AX. I suppose I may check it out tomorrow, see what a small-town con is like. Maybe it's fuzzy and homely, who knows.



UPDATE: I was… Continue
