Blog title courtesy of the fact that peeking at how many days I've run my water streak up to revealed that I've been on Spark 499 days. Now, if I had more wherewithal, I'd be going over my blog posts and picking and choosing snippets, and orderi... Read more
Well, of course, it isn’t Saturday, and obviously, it’s not summer out there, but when you’ve got a Mark Twain book in your hands (or on the computer, as it were), things do seem a bit brighter and fresher, don’t they? Spending this lazy Sunday ... Read more

After a week of no jogging, I tried it again on Thursday. The last time I did, I went 6 laps (half-mile), and Thursday I went 9. Didn’t quit... Read more
Couple of random thoughts, just to keep alive this silly blog a day streak. I'm getting kind of bored with it, so it'll likely die a natural death soon, but that won't be tonight.
BLC TNT was a PITA, where the "a" stands for Abs. Downloade... Read more
Title from Echolyn - “Settled Land”
I set some very modest goals for this BLC 21 challenge. In my post from January 6, just 23 days ago, I said that over the next 12-13 w... Read more

wet shoes are no fun
Yeah, that's all I've got for poetry.
Hit the library today and grabbed some books to read. "I love you Beth Cooper" was one, partly because the title sounded like som... Read more
Short answer: heck yeah it is. Funny thing, it took me a while to recognize it as such, and then only after reading about Emma’s (emmaekay) Zumba adventures. She mentioned needing to Macgyver herself a new belt, and I thought about a time, long ... Read more
So it was snowing pretty hard (and unexpectedly, as I hadn't looked at the forecast for today) when I finally decided to go to the gym, and I let it stop me, rationalizing that I really didn't want to go anyway. I mean, I'd sat around reading al... Read more
BLC bloggy topic asking along the lines of “how are you going to feel when you get to your fitness/weight goals?” And the short answer is, “Heck if I know!” (aka HIIK!, a very useful acronym).
The extended edition of this flick has alterna... Read more
A BLC teammate wondered aloud about losing some weight and then going into a self-sabotage phase, and as that's more or less been my story since jumping onto sparkpeople, I rambled on a bit about it.
I absolutely identify with her tale, bec... Read more
I’m one of those people who are slow to appreciate differences in others who have lost weight, sometimes saying nothing lest I insult someone who hasn’t actually lost weight. That tendency extends to my own self, in terms of not feeling like the... Read more
I can’t recall the last time I had caffeine.
I had a 12 pack of Coke Zero that ran out at some point before January 9th. I know this, because I went into a grocery store looking for a particular grapefruit package that was on a good sale, a... Read more
How can it be not what it is, when being is in itself?
Gibberish? Exactly. Spock’s Beard, to be precise
Interview today went…actually, I have no idea. Decent enough, I ... Read more
Trying to look back on stuff I used to do 5, 7, 9 years ago, and dredging up a ton of memories. The details are pretty fuzzy, even if I did take the retrospective peek a couple of times during the last year. All in all, it's been like being back... Read more
