The Daily EO: July 14th, 2013

I think it was the Windsor Arms Spa in Toronto where I first learned about the concept of threading for hair removal.  And since that time, I will do nothing else but threading (or tweezing). And wax will come not near my skin.  Can you imagine the damage you do to your skin around your eyes when you yank on it for 30 years?

Fortunately, I am generally lightly haired on the rest of my body, but like many of us, there is hairs on my upper lip that I hate.  They are probably not very noticeable, but I like to get them removed.  I pay someone $10 to rip them out with thread.

The Daily EO: April 22nd, 2013

The day after 10k that you weren’t prepared for is a tottering one.  Yes, you have that ground swell of pride and good feeling, but sitting down to pee is problematic.

Nonetheless, I still think it was worth it.


No more water, Thanks.

April 22nd, 2013 Extra-Ordinary:  Knowing today’s pain is better than tomorrow’s will be.

The Daily EO: January 24th, 2013

I went to a new massage therapist.

I often feel like I have something to prove with RMTs because I never want to complain about the pain. I feel like I should just take it – the pain is good, it is releasing something bad right?  So, I usually suck it up during the rough patches, because I don’t want to be wussy.  (my mother would say “Get some self-esteem, Susan”)

But this new RMT started using elbows on my gluts?  Oh, my god that hurt.  And strong fingers along my scapula?  Wow. How did theose thin little fingers exert so much pressure?   It felt bizarrely terrible and good at the same time.   I didn’t cry out, I just told her later than that was “sure something”.
