Kind of odd that a man who seems to refuse to get out and run even though he knows that it will help his weight problem and get him into shape for a half marathon for which he has already signed up would have a running tip, but I do.
When running early in the morning, before the sun rises, it is a really bad idea to wear dark-blue sweatpants and a dark-blue hoodie. Guess what…. DRIVERS CAN’T FUCKING SEE YOU, EINSTEIN!
I nearly hit some dude who was about to cross the street in front of me because he was wearing this midnight cowboy camouflage outfit, like he was a goddamn running ninja or something.

I call this “A Zebra Is Nothing More Than A Glorified Ass”
I think it’s funny. I also think that I am the only one who thinks it’s funny.
There’s A Whole Lotta Nothing Going On
My compadres in Denver have sucked me in to a 5pm Eastern Wednesday meeting so running at George’s has been placed on the back burner. What really sucks is that this means that I have to sit around the office a while after the meeting ends in order to let traffic subside. Last night I pulled up into my driveway some time around 8pm.
Once I got home, collected my mail, caught up on some tasks around the house, and then decided whether dinner beat exercise it was already past 9pm.
I know that this sounds like I am making excuses for not exercising (and I am).
Next Monday I plan to try something different. I will be giving up going to lunch with my lunch crowd and attempt to get my running in during that period of time. Wish me luck because I am sure as hell going to need it.
It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like 360
You’ve no doubt heard about the console wars going on between the newly-released Playstation 3, the newly-released Wii, and last year’s Xbox 360. I have been holding off to see which system I am going to buy in hopes that one would be so much better than the rest that I would have no choice but to select it.
Yes, I know that I am a child. I’m okay with this.
After seeing the Wii in action I can honestly say that I need more than it offers. Besides, I have no history with the Zelda series and to me playing anything associated with Mario Brothers takes me back twenty-plus years and I want to move forward.
The Playstation 3 seemed like the logical choice for me. However, shortage of systems (I was not willing to camp out for one) and the scary feeling I get about Revision 1 hardware has led me to wonder if this is the one I should buy. I also still harbor some hard feelings toward Sony — there was the rootkit fiasco last year and it appears as if they are scaling back the UMD movie business that they pimped so hard for the PSP — a platform I was drooling over for some time. This makes me wonder what happens if Blue Ray is the loser in a war between it and HD-DVD (think “VHS v. Betamax” if you are old enough to know what the hell a Betamax machine was) since a Blue Ray drive is built into the Playstation 3.
This leads me to the Xbox 360. I have had my squabbles with Microsoft in the past and will be a very late adopter of Vista, if I ever adopt at all. However, the Xbox 360 now has one year of maturity under its belt and with the release of the HD-DVD drive add-on (another 200 clams) allows the Xbox 360 to play HD movies. What’s appealing about this solution is that if HD-DVD winds up being “Betamax” I am sure that Microsoft can release a Blue Ray drive add-on in a jiffy. Microsoft has now started selling video content which can be played via the 360 which also piques my interest.
Say It With Me
Ta-ta Poverty…. That is my prediction for tonight’s Survivor. While I really don’t want to see her go, she is my pick in my weekly pool. Last week’s winner, Stacy, had first pick and she chose Adam. I am hoping he has a repeat performance winning the Immunity Challenge and that the powers-that-be decided to stick with their alliance therefore selecting Poverty as the sacrificial lamb.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – so large I think I’m going to explode. I feel like Violet Beauregarde from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing The Walkman — “Louisiana”
Website Of The Day – It’s a cartoon strip. About a duck. Who owns camera. And, it’s called What the Duck. Admit it, you are intrigued…
