I feel good, I knew that I would

I worked out at lunchtime -- 32 minutes of cardio, reps on the incline press and the hip ad/abductors. Yea!

Then I donated my platelets. I like knowing that 3 hours total (that includes going to and from the Lifesource Center) will help make a cancer patient's chemo easier. I have done this before, so I already knew it's completely painless. But now, because of my friend Kathleen's breast cancer, donating seems more personal and more important.

This show ROCKED!

I saw American Idol's Constantine Maroulis in Rock of Ages last night, and it was simply terrific. First of all, he's simply a charmer. He has great pipes and unexpectedly delicious comic timing -- all innocent wonderment inside a leather-clad rocker's body. The plot is fabulously, ridiculously silly. And the music! Everything from "Cum on Feel the Noize" to "Don't Stop Believing" to "We Built This City." I've had "Harden My Heart" running through my head all day. If you get a chance to see this show, do it!

It was also good to see my old boss/theater buddy, Barb, again.
