Today's been sort of busy, but good. Work itself was quiet. Usually it's a madhouse when my boss is out, but it hasn't been this week. I'm sooooo thankful for that. And even the lecture on social media this afternoon was entertaining. It's really interesting to see what some companies are doing and how YouTube makes overnight celebrities out of people.
I'm still not sure I get the lure of Twitter, though. I have subscribed to one useful feed that I actually use for work, but other than that — not so much. I'm not sure my life is interesting enough to give a minute-by-minute update. Oh well. I guess I can never say never, right?
I squeezed in a super quick workout this afternoon because I told my mom's friend I'd help her with her Web site. It might over my head, though. I redesigned this site with trial and error so I'm sure if I play around with it I can get it to do what she wants. I work with Internet at work and know a few technical things, but I'm on the content side not the IT side, so my knowledge is limited.
Because I had to meet up with her my dinner was on the run — Quiznos. I had the veggie sub minus the cheddar and the dressing with an apple on the side. The photo's a little dark, but you get the idea.
I'm guessing the sandwich was about 350 calories, 14 grams of fat and 5 grams of fiber. I had it on whole wheat. I'm guessing the NI only because their Web site doesn't differentiate between the cheeses. I asked for just the mozzarella and to put just the amount of mozzarella they would normally put on it.
It was OK but not Earth shattering or anything like that. It was better than the veggie sub at Subway, though. Plus, I was craving guacamole and figured this was a better choice than Chipotle.
Then, after getting the details on my mom's friend's Web site, I went to Best Buy to purchase a new USB cord for my iPod shuffle. I am so happy to have something that works. The crappy docking station that came with it broke all by itself within 6 months and the dang iPod's batteries ran out. Good thing I checked the ratings on the docking station. What a rip. I ended up with a cord from some other company that works so much better! Now I can listen to my music when I work out instead of the '80s and '90s hits they blare in the gym.
What kind of music do you listen to when you work out? My iPod is all over the map. I've got Justin Timberlake and Amy Winehouse in there, but I also have tons of Kings of Leon, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Cake and Arcade Fire.
