Hanging out, working out, "Ugly Betty", and dancing

So late this morning I got a call from tygereclipse that she wasn't working today, so we did lunch and hung out together for a while

Because of that, I went to the gym late. I was just going to do half an hour of aerobics on the crosstrainer, but I got involved with a show on one of the TVs, and so did another half hour as well, while watching.

I had thought the show was just a TV movie, but apparently not. It was the pilot for "Ugly Betty", which I just learned from wikipedia is actually a US translation of a worldwidely popular telenovela (with localized remakes) called Betty la fea.

It may just be me, but I found the "ugly" lead character much more attractive than the blond vapid Soho types she works with. Petite, pale, dark hair, glasses, and smart smart smart. What's not to lust after? :)

After getting back and having dinner, on a lark, I headed out again, to the Grind. My body is so going to hate me in the morning. An hour on the crosstrainer, followed by a couple of hours on a dance floor.
