Val the Cookie Queen
I have not had proper training session at the gym for a couple of weeks, due to a hurt knee and a strained neck. I am actually in a filthy bad mood because of it, but no time to really feel properly sorry for myself as the last week was so busy. This is a fifth Tuesday which is not a normal CQ Tuesday so I will take the liberty of telling you what went down. You will need to excuse the few dodgy photos.
Scenting Gigs, The Rampage, and MMA.
We went to see George Ezra in Vienna at the beginning of the week. Fabulous baritone voice, supported by a six piece band, including trumpet and trombone. All black ensemble and ready to entertain us. He engaged so well with the audience, chatting between most of the numbers, played a number of guitars, and shook his hips. It was such a happy show. Being constantly bombarded with negativity from politics to our newsfeeds, it was a complete joy. ScentOf TheGig was Frederic Malle’s Portrait of a Lady. works great in a hot and sweaty atmosphere. I love pop music as much as I do other genres, and this was superb.
Friday night was The Red Bull Rampage. The free ride event of the year. Its a big thing in our house, and there were a lot of guys here watching it. And naturally it included hopping around on a bike in our living room. If you have never seen The Rampage – take a look RIGHT HERE. ScentOfTheRampage was the very last of my Chanel La Pausa 28 EdT. I only used it up because I am going to visit A Bottled Rose, in a couple of weeks and I know I am gonna get some more!
I went to my first live MMA event in Linz on Saturday evening. Mixed martial arts is a full contact combat sport. Standing and/or on the ground, using techniques from the martial arts and other combat sports. Been around since the early nineties, although I think the ancient Greeks did something similar. My trainer’s buddy, a professional fighter, and my daughter, B.londeswunder’s, kickboxing trainer, also MMA, were both competing. It was pretty hardcore. And they both won. I might go again. ScentOfTheMMA was Chanel’s Rue Cambon 31 EdT. I thought it might surround me with an air of calm. Thought. (photos underneath of Dominic Schober Gym 23 Vienna. After the win in Linz.).
Was a great week. I had been excited for George Ezra since the spring when we bought tickets. I had to vacuum up a lot of chip crumbs after The Rampage, and my heart had to calm down after the MMA. But you know – all I really wanna do is workout.
What puts you in a bad mood?
