Think Up Your Own Clever Title


So I was going to start this post with the usual 'I suck for not posting in so many days' but I'm sure you're getting as tired of hearing it as I am of saying it. There just really hasn't been that much going on to comment about. I could bitch about the Conservatives who seem to think that this year's taxes have anything to do with the Obama administration, but that would just be boring, and Jon Stewart did it so much better. I could talk about how boring things are at work, but someone whinging about how boring things are at work is just...well, y'know, boring. I could tell you how I was kidnapped at gunpoint on Wednesday while making a withdrawal at the bank, and was forced to drive my car in a high-speed chase through downtown St. Pete with dozens of cop cars following until I managed to pull an awesome fish-tail crash into a telephone pole disabling the bank robber and earning myself the undying gratitude of both the police and the electric company, but that would just be lying. In reality I've been doing a lot of navel gazing and lamenting not having more to do. I mean, I have a lot to do, i.e. podcast editing, project grading, theatre maintenance, but mostly what I do is stare at this screen and laugh at other people's work. And I'm getting sick of it. Yesterday was the benefits fair at work. We had to go and collect our forms to affirm our benefits for the coming year, and there was a health assessment being done by Blue Cross. They checked my blood pressure, and took a bit of blood for analysis. I also filled out a questionnaire. On many levels I'm doing well, but my cholesterol and fat-assedness are not so good. So I need to get myself into a better routine of eating and exercise. So yesterday when I got home I went for a bike ride. Today we bought some shrubbery to put in front of our house to appease the Knights of Ni, which I planted and then went for a bike ride, then I caught up on Daily Shows, Colbert Reports, and Jeopardies. Even telling you about my life is boring the shit out of me. So now that the wife has her own wheels, and I'm getting sick of staring at the inside of this house, maybe things will get a bit more interesting soon. On the up side, I did buy my tickets for Star Trek(the new movie) last night. I'm actually getting excited about this film...but JJ Abrams will need to constantly look over his shoulder if it sucks.

And now, it's time for me to make dinner. wheeeee.

Love y'all,
Marius

we can try to make this fun by doing a healthy recipe exchange, or a fitness contest- or, if you are like me, a countdown to the number of days until you remember you like sitting around and eating cheetos more than you like abstract concepts of health? Just a few thoughts...

We can call it The Bloggest Loser, and we'll do daily weigh-ins, and post headless swimsuit pics, and...and....Christ! I'm winded. Let me just have a donut and catch my breath. ;-)


Actually the recipe thing sounds like a good idea. :-D

Clever title... I'm thinking... Life?

Sometimes, you make your way through the days and nothing seems to be worthy of tapping on some computer buttons and come up with something snappy. Sometimes life is just life.

It doesn't mean that your life is sad, or boring or any other adjective... It just means that you don't feel like writing.

No big whup. Ride your bike. Plant your shrubbery. Do what you do, and, when you feel like it, post.

I would love to have a weight loss contest, but I just bought two Sara Lee pies. And, you know, it's a sin to waste food. Yeah. That's why.

I'm up for the weight loss thingy. . . and I love the title: The Bloggest Loser! I can't really participate in an exercise program as yet. . . my epidural appointment turned out to be a consultation, not the procedure. That occures on 4/30. . .maybe then I'll feel up to actually DOING something!

BTW, now you know why I don't blog much. . . I think my life is more boring than yours!

Sometimes boring is good - it doesn't cost any money or cause any stress.

My laptop has been showing it's age, so I don't get to catch up with you as much as I used to. I'm glad you're stil posting and life hasn't taken any more nasty turns.

As for myself, I'll get around to posting one day....
