I didn't do pushups today. I did faux pullups instead.

I am about to get into the bath with a notebook, a pen, a Lush bath bomb, and a lot of muscles sore from this morning's set of thrusters. Which, I must say, were less prawny and more barbell-riffic than you might expect from that name. But before I do so, here's a gratuitous poll!

You did watch the Eureka season premiere? Yes?

I'm still mulling over some of the plot points they put in there that didn't get resolved. But there were some very squee-worthy moments in there.
I did watch it, earlier this evening with the husband. He's picked up the show as something he watches, to my surprise, along with Doctor Who.

We mostly enjoyed it: the plot was predictable, but Carter got us laughing as usual. He's most of why we watch. We like the cast as an ensemble (with the exception of the jerk Jo is dating; give us Taggart, please!). Zoe's fun, the House is great, and the setting promises a lot. We are unsure what to make of the Things That Changed (being vague) in the first ep, of course, but we're happy to watch 'em work themselves out.
Lush bath bomb! I spent this afternoon putting bath bombs in my online basket, and am trying to convince myself I don't need quite that many. It's... difficult.

I voted and then realised I could have voted for more than one option in each question. More kink from all the characters!
Oh, man, I have such a terrible problem with over-ordering Lush. Their recent Retro-Lush thing had me in a tizzy, wanting to try everything. Last night's bb was retro-Lush in fact: the "honey lumps" bomb. My husband made many lump jokes.

I'll mark you down as "pro-kink", then!
Okay, it's silly, but ... I misread your word above as Barbarella and pictured you with big hair rolling around on a shag carpet doing Jane Fonda exercises that were vaguely porny. Now that's a workout!
