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 Amazon.com 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 Buzz – The information portal for all things East Atlanta, and then some.
