Meh * Infinity

After yet another atrocious attempt at running last night I feared that stepping on the scale would cause irreparable mental and physical damage. As a result a few more things will change as of today

– You will see less of me until there is less of me to see.
– Beer and soda are not my friends, they are my enemies.
– With rare exception restaurants are now dinosaurs to me.

I am sure that I’ve said it in the past but I have been obese in the past and for me it’s like being in jail. I cannot go back.

Stopped Meter

Sadly this stopped power meter is a good analogy for the current (no pun intended) state of my running — no power

There’s A Shit-ton Of Music Dropping Today
According to Metacritic’s Upcoming Releases Calendar there are twenty-two new discs in record stores today. Twenty-two!

If you listen to Paris Hilton, hers is the only release that should be mentioned. I don’t necessarily listen to Paris Hilton.

I wish I could have heard to all twenty-two of today’s releases so that I could give you an informed decision on what is good and what is not. But I couldn’t so here is
short list of the bands I know and their new releases.

  • Jason Molina “Let Me Go, Let Me Go, Let Me Go”
  • Mountain Goats “Get Lonely”
  • Jennifer O’Connor “Over The Mountain, Across The Valley And Back To The Stars”
  • OutKast “Idlewild”
  • Primal Scream “Riot City Blues”
  • Razorlight “Razorlight”
  • Starsailor “On The Outside”
  • The Thermals “The Body, The Blood, The Machine”
  • M. Ward “Post-War”

[note to self: must fix the CSS for unordered lists]

Of this list I’ve heard the M. Ward stuff the most and am really digging it.

Oh, and one more thing… Atlanta’s own Snowden had their cd reviewed by Pitchfork today. Read the review here.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – pretty shitty
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Crooked Fingers — “You Threw A Spark”
Website Of The Day – If you are in need of funny flash animations or videos to get you through the day, head on over to Devil Ducky. Caution, not that there is porn on the site but I doubt that anyone would considered this site to be “work safe”. I caution because I care.
Exercise (b)Log – run/walk/walk/walk/run/walk/walk/walk – 5 miles

May your day be better than mine,

    Become a wino … better for you than beer for losing weight. Just don’t drink the entire bottle in one sitting 🙂 Water at work has helped me drop a few more post-baby weight pounds. Soda is the devil !!!

    It also hasn’t helped that my body refuses to rid itself of the poison ivy I’ve had for over a week. This crap is making me insane!!!

  3. oh god. poison ivy.
    that and mosquitos will put me in the nuthouse.

    i joined a gym.
    it hurts.

    Mosquito bites don’t seem to bother me, poison ivy on the other hand is brutal and lasts forever.

    I have a gym membership but with this skin condition the last thing I want is to be around others.

    go get some of the low grade steroids from your doc, or at minimum a steroid creme. I have never had any good luck with anything else unless it is a VERY mild case. Trust me, you’ll be happy you did.
