Two Completely Random Unrelated Things of No Importance Whatsoever

1)  Do anyone else's toes/feet fall asleep or go numb on the elliptical?  I had a trainer once (yep, that one) who told me it's because your feet are stationary when you're on the elliptical machine so your body prioritizes pumping blood to the body parts that are moving and working and seem to need it the most.  This makes plausible sense to me, but I just wanted to check because it also totally seems like something that happens right before you have a stroke, so, you know, just checking.  I have a deep-rooted and very real fear of humiliating myself at the gym.  Which is also why I don't use half the stuff in there.  Every second I spend standing there trying to decipher what the hell those stick figures are doing in that little picture, and in what order, I can feel more and more eyes on me and you know they're all thinking that I don't know what I'm doing.  Then I get so anxious about the people, the people looking and thinking, that my brain panics and the pictures make no sense and I don't feel the burn where I'm supposed to feel the burn and I'm 99.99% sure I'm doing it wrong, so now all the people looking and thinking know that they're right and I am mortified.  So if you could get back to me about the stroke thing, that would be one less thing to worry about.

2)  The weather report for the next three days calls for "partly sunny," "times of clouds and sun,"  and my favorite, "some sun, then clouds."  So there will be clouds.  There will be sun.  They will happen at roughly the same time during the daylight hours.  This has been communicated to you now three different ways.  What don't you f-ing get?  Does anyone else think the weather report is kind of being a passive aggressive asshole here?  No?  Just me?

I might just need sleep.

My toes go numb whenever I'm on the elliptical longer than 20 minutes then it doesn't go away (despite tons of toes wiggles) until I stop! So yeah, you'll be fine.

Also...when on said elliptical, I look around at people using the machines so I know what to do with them when I go to try them out (a new one each week until you figure out your few favorites)!
