Nothing Like A Little Spring Cleaning

I can’t help but perform “Spring” cleaning when the temperature hovers in the mid-to-upper seventies even though the calendar says “December.” I know that this Indian Winter will end abruptly in the next few days and I am prepared to be cold again.

My Name Is Paulie And I Am An Addict
Thanks to the writers’ strike and the persuasion of my friend Betsy I have started watching Arrested Development on DVD. I have to admit that I was not a fan of the show during its original run on air. I think that I tried to watch it once mid-season and didn’t “get it.” As I am watching episodes in order I can definitely see that Arrested Development was definitely one of those shows that if you weren’t “in” you were “out.”

My addiction has grown so large that I have ordered the Arrested Development DVD Set from Amazon.

Twelve Days Of ITP Flickr Pics
Each day through Christmas I will be picking my favorite photo for each month of 2007.

Today: March
Day Turns To Night

This was a hard one to pick. March had the fewest photos from which to select, and the photo that I liked the most was of me, but was not taken by me.

How Quickly Habits Are Broken
I haven’t ridden Marta in over a week. Oh I’ve had my reasons, but it’s mainly because I have not wanted my morning commute to take at least an hour. I hope to crack the whip and ride tomorrow and perhaps Friday. I haven’t given up on my December riding goal yet…

Oh, and I forgot to get onto the scale for my weigh-in this morning. Rats!

I’ll Be At George’s Tonight (I Hope)
My running has been pour poor of late but I am hoping that I can capitalize on what may be the last seventy-degree day of the year. There is also a Thrashers game tonight, but I can’t get the Hockey Love when it’s this perfect outside.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – okay
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Cat Power — “Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis”
Website Of The Day – If I had a desire to decorate my house at Christmas mine would probably show up at Ugly Christmas Lights.
Exercise (b)Log – nothing
Monthly Foot Mileage – 15.3 miles
Monthly Wheel Mileage – 0 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car
Monthly Marta Rides – 4

December Goals
1) Run no fewer than 50 miles
2) Ride Marta no fewer than twenty times (ten round-trips)
3) Read at least one book

    “My running has been pour of late..” Freudian slip, perhaps?

    I shant be at Georges tonight. It was a late night in a meeting last night, then a long drive home to the country. I’m being slack on my running of late, but I have a reasonable excuse.


  2. Stacy says:

    Since you so rarely like pictures taken of you, can you point us toward the one you do? I’m curious now!

    And, again – WOW. That was last March?! For real?! If I were a betting girl, I could have sworn it was more recent than that. I have a similar picture too. 🙂

    @Steve: I guess that I was thinking about beer? 🙂

    @Stacy: I can’t believe that it was that long ago either! This “going back into the catalog” has weirded me out at times.

    This is the photo (taken by Gentri) that I like

    Cast Iron Chef

    I don’t look fat and I am proudly displaying a pot full of chili that would get no respect from the judges at the Black Rock Mountain Campout Chili Cook-off.

  4. Stacy says:

    Yup – great pic! Now if only we can get you to smile a little more!! 🙂

  5. Gentri says:

    That’s his serious, “I’m a Chef, damnit!”, smile!

    I still say the cook-off is rigged……….
