Shameless Self-Promotion Thursday

I’m a bad boy. I sat in a meeting until 6pm. I drove toward home, fighting traffic. I couldn’t help myself — instead of going home and running, I went to La Cantina Casita and ate dinner instead. Shame on me. In my defense I did manage to do some sit-ups and use my dumbbells while watching the season finale of Kitchen Nightmares. So I guess that I was lifting dumbbells while watching dumbbells. Being able to lift again pleased me, it was the first time since damaging my thumb that I’ve done so.

Look Who’s Selling Out
I really don’t like advertising so you can call me a hypocrite. I’ve started playing around with updating this site and I’ve placed an widget on it. I figure that if you are going to buy something from Amazon anyway why shouldn’t you go through my Associate account and make a few pennies for me. 🙂 You don’t have to buy the item shown for me to get credit. Anything you purchase after clicking through my link to Amazon will work.

I’ll understand if you don’t.

Hey look! A knife set. I wonder if it is sharp enough to slice off the tip of a thumb?

ITP Someone Else’s Flickr Pic
I took no photos in the past two days. However, if you over to Flickr and look at this photo you will see the image I was planning on capturing, that is until I saw Big Dave Deluxe out there beating me to it.

I wish that I was pimping one of my own photos today.

Look Who’s Ripped!
I wish I was referring to my body, instead I am referring to my collection of Christmas videos. My videos are all ripped and ready for my Holiday playback. So if you happen to see a really cool looking guy watching Christmas videos like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” or “A Year Without A Santa Claus” on an iPod that has a short line’s worth of dead pixels, you’ll know that it’s me.

btw- Did you know you can buy these sorts of videos at Amazon? Just follow my link. Okay, I’ll stop.

Oh, and if you plan on watching your movies on your iPod do as I say and not as I did. While searching for a Christmas video to watch while waiting for the train this morning I realized that I ripped all of my Christmas movies for AppleTV, which does not play on an iPod. D’Oh!

Another Birthday? Inconceivable!
A resident of the western most point of the Beermuda Triangle (I tried to register that domain name yesterday and was not that surprised that it was already taken), and good buddy BWanA (Harold to his non-hashing friends) gets older today. I wonder if he’ll have a beer tonight?

And lest I stray to far from today’s theme, mark your calendars for July 22, 2008 which is my next birthday.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – Disappointed because my Marta commute was slow and that I am not losing weight. Other than that I’m alright.
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Buzzcocks — “Ever Fallen In Love?” (yeah, once or twice)
Website Of The Day – Even though I don’t own this website, the owner lives on my corner. Therefore by the non-existent Algebraic Rule of “Proximity” I all allowed to choose it for Shameless Self-Promotion Thursday. The site? EAV BuzzThe information portal for all things East Atlanta, and then some.
Exercise (b)Log – weight lifting and situps
Monthly Foot Mileage – 43.5 miles
Monthly Wheel Mileage – 0 miles
Mode Of Transportation To WorkMarta

November Goals
1) Run no fewer than 25 miles

    1) I find it just a little too hilarious that your first self-promo “deal of the day” does happen to be knives. 🙂

    2) Happy birthday to the Bitch!

    3) Interesting that East Atlanta Santas are only interested in children, pets and “small adults.” Exactly how does one define a small adult? By height? By weight? And why the regulation? Now, if Santa can’t handle a 400lb. adult on his lap, it’s understandable. But who said anything about having to sit on his lap to take a picture anyway? Sheesh! Talk about discrimination!

    4) Bummer about However, methinks that the just might still be available. 🙂

    I know for a fact that Santa is an unpaid volunteer, although I am sure someone will buy him a beer or two for his efforts. I guess that he has requested that he not get crushed. 🙂

    Hmmm, — interestering…. I suppose there are other variations that may work as well. 🙂

    Because I’d rather shop through and raise money for my favorite charity 🙂

    Sarah: What if we just think of Paulie AS a charity case? 😉

  5. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Yeah, I’ve been called a basket case before. How far from a charity can that be?

  6. Martha says:

    Happy Birthday Harold!!

    Paulie I ran by your house this morning and your yard did not resemble the killing field I had imagined…did you charm the critters out of the attic?

    Not gotten my Grim Reaper costume yet. I think that the war will start Saturday.
