Back With A Vengence

I wanted to return to my normal life relaxed and happy. Instead I returned to a home which lacks air conditioning, a bike rack situation that needs to be corrected, finding out that the computer memory I ordered last week was back-ordered (funny, it was supposedly in stock when I placed the order), and when I cranked up my iBook last night there a was narrow solid red line which ran vertically down the right hand side of the screen an inch in from the edge.

I tried rebooting the computer, in hopes that it was a software glitch, but no luck. I know that this line didn’t exist while I typed up my synopsis on the plane, so it occurred sometime between then and getting home. I also know that I didn’t drop my bag, so I have no idea how this could have occurred. This just fucking blows. As you can imagine, after coming home from vacation my budget doesn’t exactly allow for a new laptop. While the line is not obtrusive it does annoy the fuck out of me.

And You Were Expecting Only A Vacation Recap?

I feel like my life has been shot down again.

Vacation Is Over, Weight Loss Must Begin
Okay, I can no longer play the “I’m on vacation” card when eating / drinking, nor can I allow myself to remain in the condition that I am in. My current physical form is neither good for my long-term physical, nor my short-term mental, health.

Is There Such A Thing As Mid-Speed Internet?
If so, that’s what I must have. I shut down my home server and internet connection while I was away (I wasn’t going to be here to use them, why leave them powered on?). When I returned and restarted iTunes it took forever to download all of the podcasts that I missed while I was away. It seems to me that downloading this media should have gone much quicker. Seems like I am missing the “High” in my “High-Speed” internet connection.

May Goals, How Did I Do?

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – annoyed
Current Music – nothing at the moment
Website Of The Day – While I didn’t leave my car at the airport you may want to. If you do, you may want to make parking reservations online at Airport Parking Reservations.
Exercise (b)Log – none
Mode Of Transportation To Work – Marta

June Goals
0) I give up. I am tired of missing goals. I will never be happy.

    Good to have the “happy Paulie” back, relaxed from vacation and back in town again…

    You know what to do vis a vis weight loss, and you’ve got enough tips from friends on this blog to write yourself a small primer. I’m feeling that a bunch of small steps for you might get you further than a few big ones my friend…….. i.e. meal changes/reduces carbs/sugars, back away from the beer, 20 sit/ups/push-ups 2x a week, less (gasp) booze… ok that last one was as bit harsh……..

  2. I am firing on all cylinders today. 🙂

    If I use a straw it will require more work to drink it. Think that will work? 😉

    As in “put the beer down and back slowly away from the keg Paulie!” It’s a sad sad day, but it has been a long time coming………

    … so is “Back with a Vengeance” the original or the movie sequel????? You and Bruce takin’ on Iran… sweet.
