It’s been awhile since I first saw you

February 24, 2009

Hmmm… yeah, me and this blog haven’t really spoken in awhile.  That’s a mistake.

Quick update:  Things are going well.  Remember the whole Secret’s to Success blog?  yeah, you do.  Anyway, I hadn’t connected with my business partner and truly set that up.  We talked all about it, but didn’t set an actual date.  From there, it was easy to let it slip and slowly fade to the background as a memory.  Meanwhile, my “disciplines” have become quite the rarety as far as getting up, exercising, and accomplishing the things I need to do each day.

SO, last week, I met again with this man, and we set a date for real and it was yesterday.  Two, count ’em, two days now I have risen early in the morning, got my work out on and then been showered and shaved with enough time for a little quiet time in the morning before work.  Awesome.

Also awesome?  This video, do you remember it?


Fasting update,

January 25, 2009

Sometimes it’s difficult to start one of these blog posts because I’m not really sure I have anything to say.  Wow, with a beginning like that can you even wait to see what I’ll right next!?

HungryThe fasting has gone well thus far.  Mostly, I’ve been drinking these meal-replacement shakes twice a day and then making dinner for myself.  I’m very proud of the fact that I made some pulled-chicken (with Sonny’s bbq sauce!) in the crockpot the other night and used the leftover chicken stock to make a soup.  It was actually pretty cool and quite frugal of me if I do say so myself!  One of the problems has been that because I exercise great restraint for most of the day I feel the need to overindulge myself at night.  It me reminds me of that Muslim holiday where they don’t eat at all during the day but then get jacked up at night… only, I’m pretty sure I’m not having as much fun as they do and I don’t want to kill all the infedels.

Anyway, I also went and saw The Dark Knight in IMAX yesterday and I must say that the IMAX shots themselves were awesome.  Several of the exterior shots flying over Gotham and Hong Kong were done this way and it was so much more immersive than the traditional 16:9.  The movie, has so many amazing points to it I believe it totally deserves the press, accolades, etc. that it has received.

The movie is also very dark.  Hence the title, I know.  But it truly was a dark film which is unusual for an action/comic book movie like this and once I got home I had to put in the very cheesy, over-the-top The Mummy to lift my mood.

Anyway, there you have it.  I have successfully updated my blog a little bit, which really is something I wanted to do and both of you that read it now need to make sure you’re updating your blog as well.  Also of note, I added pictures to this post and doesn’t that make everything more interesting!?  Give it a shot!  I only wish that I could expand the margins on my center column here where I write, because it feels to crowded right now, but I don’t think the free will let you change that.   Alright, that’s all I’ve got right now.  Peace out.

Doesn’t get more obvious than that, does it?  Yep, this post is about my weekend.  That’s kinda weird cause I did so close to absolutely nothing it’s ridiculous that I should think to write about it, but here we are.

When I say I did close to absolutely nothing, I’m telling the truth.  Thursday and Friday were really busy days for me and so I decided that I’d take this long weekend and really dial it down a notch.  It’s been fantastic.  On Saturday I got up super late and met up with a friend for whatever a 2pm meal at IHOP (pancakes not prayer; though we did pray for the pancakes) should be called.  Then it was off for a nice drive followe by a walk back and forth over the green bridge.  It was the most perfect day for it.  The kinda that only come around 2-3 times a year.

Anyway, then I came home and we made some parmesan-crusted tipalia and salad and watched 3:10 To Yuma (which is fantastic by the way).  Then we watched Mystery Men which is not fantastic and even that is understating how dumb that movie is.  Sunday I got up had a nice cup of tea and played some music, read a book, did laundry and then some friends came over and we made pizzas!  This was aweomse and we ate our efforts at the end.  Then it was time for some football, Arrested Development, Lost, and ending with the movie Stardust.

Today is a holiday, but I feel like I should be getting something done.  So I blogged.  Misssion accomplished!  I’m going to go see Paul Blart this afternoon and try to catch up with a couple friends.  All in all, a good weekend.  And that is, afterall, the title of this post, so what were you expecting anyway!

C. S. Lewis:

Did you ever meet, or hear of, anyone who was converted from skepticism to a “liberal” or “demythologized” Christianity? I think that when unbelievers come in at all, they come in a good deal further. (Letters To Malcolm, 119)

This is just hilarious.  It has nothing to do with me personally, other than I love it and think you will too:  enjoy!
