It’s January 2nd Already?

Man this year is going by fast!

I Finally Got Someone In My Bed
Sadly, that someone was me. What you may or may not know is that for the last two years I have almost exclusively slept on one of my two couches. (Two? Yeah, that’s how I roll!)

There were two reasons behind this. The first reason was the sentimental one; after sleeping with someone for a long time the bed seemed empty, the couch on the other hand was always intended for one person. The other reason was the practical one; I don’t “go to bed”, I “fall asleep”, usually watching tv or less frequently reading. Eventhough I would wake up again at some point in the night, I thought it silly to migrate to the bedroom when I was already comfortable enough on the couch.

The Number Of The Count Shall Be 204
That is the unofficial count of people who celebrated January 1st by doing the annual Cheddarhead hash. Even if that is not the official count, I am certain a new record was set for the hash, thanks to sixty degree (although cloudy) weather. Luckily the rain held off until we had finished the outdoor portion of the day.

When I left the bowling alley my high score was second-best, which of course wins absolutely nothing. The high-score holder was that motherfucker [oops, there goes my resolution not to curse in 2006] Check My Bag who was bowling (with his own ball and shoes I might add) on my lane. I believe that he was taking tips from me during the first game and got me sufficiently drunk by the second game so that I could not outperform him. I hope he gets fat eating that sausage shaped like a bottle of Old Style beer, not that I would have wanted it anyway. [oops, there goes my resolution not to lie in 2006]

Wow, that was cathartic.

The Password Is “Streamline”

tr.v. stream·lined, stream·lin·ing, stream·lines

1. To construct or design in a form that offers the least resistance to fluid flow.
2. To improve the appearance or efficiency of; modernize.
3. a. To organize. b. To simplify.

I really like this word. It conveys exactly what I need to do in all aspects of my life.

So in 2006 I will be

  • not “losing weight”, but rather “streamlining my body”
  • not “cleaning”, but rather “streamlining my living arrangements”

In addition I will also be striving to return to cooking meals at home, not spending so much money (okay this may be a stretch considering the plans I have for this year), complete tasks that have not been completed in the past, and most of all start living life to its fullest whether or not there is a woman in my life to share it with me.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – hungry
Current Music – The Selmanaires “Here Come” cd
Website Of The Day – The Museum of Modern Art in New York is featuring an exhibit about the twenty years of Pixar. Follow this link to see an online exhibit (caution, it has audio).

If you ever want a quick glance of the sites I’ve picked for my Websites Of The Day, you can check them out on, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”

Exercise (b)Log – six miles of running
Weekly Weigh In – 201 pounds (almost one for everyone at Cheddarhead)
