The Ubiquitous Web Presence of Sassy Pants

Besides my bloggy, albeit anonymousish, presence, I can now be found on Friendster, MySpace, AND Facebook. If you know me "fer real," look me up. I need friends. I used to be on Match.com too but then I found Friendster Guy (on, wait for it, Friendster) and didn't need to be there anymore.

This weekend I had an actual in person mini-reunion with someone who does know me "fer real" - the lovely and talented, and dare I say, freakin' hilarious Jennifer Myskowski. I am sending lots of bloggy love out to Ms. M. because FG and I saw her comedy show Saturday and had a gut busting time. I may do lots of crunches, but there is nothing like 2 hours of laughing to get those abs in shape.

In other news, I will be teaching my first ever aerobics class this evening! I've been taking this particular class every week for a year or so but have never been the one leading the group. The usual teacher is away for the week and since I'm now on the payroll she asked if I could cover for her. It could be very...interesting. I know for a fact I'm going to forget to count or say left when I mean right. Or arm when I mean leg. Or something equally confusing. If all goes well, and no one loses an eye, I will begin teaching my own class in October.

This is how my life goes - one day, I'm a mild mannered office worker, the next, I teach aerobics and wear spandex all the time. My life just sort of happens to me through no fault or prior planning of my own. And I kind of like it that way.

Also, to David, the guy who posted the following comment a few days/posts ago:

I often dream about being a personal trainer.. I work at a college now.. network engineer. It's ok.. but no passion in networks. Hmmm should I go for the big career change?

I believe Nike said it best - just do it. After all, you only live once. When opportunity knocks, for the love of mocha, open the door and let it in. Insert other "go for it" cliche here.

But have an exit strategy and don't burn bridges. Hope for the best, plan for the worst, blah, blah, blah.
