Is the Internet Dead

There has been a serious lack of blogging going on from people other than me for once. Let's get it together people.

I spent the weekend eating, watching movies/TV, eating, fighting diabetes and eating. I am pretty satisfied with my weekend eating although it was hard to keep going at times. I think I put on about 6 lbs this weekend for the weight loss contest weigh in on Monday. Please see footnotes for weekend food consumption. The good news is I already lost 7.5 lbs from yesterday. I think I might have the world's largest bladder because I peed out 2 lbs immediately after the weigh in and lost probably another couple pounds of liquid. Unfortunately now I have to start losing real weight. Let's do it. woooo.

I saw Burn After Reading. I liked it. You can't argue much with a movie you walk out of laughing and asking what the hell was that that just happened. I also watched 4 episodes of True Blood and finished the 1st season of Mad Men. I am pretty into both of these and recommend them highly.

I took the puppies to Forest Park on Sunday for the JDRF diabetes walk (3 miles). They were relatively well behaved and had a good time. Wicket slowed down a little bit because she absorbs all heat, but she was good after a water break. I know I shouldn't have been doing any exercise prior to my weigh in, but I made an executive decision and I'm sticking with it.

I'm not through as much of Infinite Jest as I would like (page 60), but I'm hoping to get a lot of reading done this week.

Here is a picture of myself in Hollywood ( I need to re size this):

Happy Birthday to Joe Fuemmeler and Ms. Russo.

*Weekend Food Consumption: Pizza Hut, popcorn, Milk Duds, 4 20oz Mountain Dews, 7-8 doughnuts, burger & fries from The Pitted Olive, QT breakfast sandwich, Starbucks Frappucino, 2 Liter Dr Pepper, Half a cheeseburger pizza from St. Louis Pizza & Wings, 10 toasted ravioli, 1 order of garlic cheese bread, 2 20oz Mr. Pibbs, 1 Pint Ice Cream, 2 hot dogs & bag of chips, 1 can Coke. That's all I can remember, but it was quite a whirlwind.

I spent Thursday night doing the following:

1. Eating 7 slices of pizza (I'm preparing for my weight loss contest so give me a break)
2. Beating Guitar Hero Aerosmith on Medium (not really even a challenge)
3. Reading
4. Watching The Office (which did not disappoint, although I wish I didn't relate to the show as much as I do ie. work weight loss contest)
5. Try to figure out why I like the Amelie soundtrack so much ( I could listen to it 700 billion times and it still gives me goosebumps every time)

Here comes my weekend of stuffing my face as a precursor to starving myself for 12 weeks. I think I'll start by skipping boot camp class right now.

Love, peace and hair grease

The Fattest Loser

So at work some people are having a weight loss contest that goes from 9/29 to 12/22. It is $20 to enter and the winner takes all. I think I will join and because:

a. I need motivation to get in better shape
2. I need money
III. I am very old and it will keep getting harder to lose weight
four. My current regimen of eating nachos and playing Guitar Hero Aerosmith is having less that spectacular results.
iiiii. It means I can try to fatten myself up all week before the first weigh in on 9/29

Can you believe it is hump day already?

I know I'm going to seem lame, and I meant to read this book a long time ago, and I look like a poser who does things only when people are in the news, but I started Infinite Jest today during lunch. So far I am glad I started. Based on what I have heard my friends say recently about it, how could I delay any further. It is a big god damned book though.

Hey what's going on with you? Not much how are you? Fine Thanks

Good Morning,

I'm doing great, how are you? I am having a little cake/bratwurst withdrawal from the last 2 days, but I'm thinking it will pass. I had a great weekend that consisted of me cleaning the house/garage/basement. It felt great to get that done. Then we had a little bday shindig at my house on Saturday which went great except for my toilet refusing to work properly. Lot's of people came which was great. It also didn't rain which was great. The ping-pong lounge was in full effect for the first time and I pretty much dominated the place. It had been a long time since we had a bunch of people over and I felt like I only talked to each person for like 5 minutes, but I guess that goes with the territory. I also realized how much of a wuss I am when it comes to my dogs. I was constantly worried about them getting out the front door and running away during the party. They were fine though and even mostly well behaved. I should have taken more pictures, but I only took one. If anyone else took some please send them my way. Here was my birthday cake:

Tonight I'm off to see the Cardinals for the last time this year in a meaningless game. woo hoo. At least they're not as bad as the Rams. The end.

Ok so now I'm old. I don't feel that much worse than I did yesterday, but it is still early. Hopefully this will motivate me to do more things with my life than just sit around and watch it go by. I'm going to eat steak tonight and that is a good thing.

Things that have made me happy lately:

Cleaning out my garage and basement. Granted the reason I am doing this is because both my basement and garage are leaking, but it is an excuse to get organized and look through my stuff that I don't do anything with otherwise.

Trying to listen to music more. The last little while I found that I only listen to NPR or sports talk radio. I don't think that is good for my well being. Music is pretty much the best thing ever so I should enjoy it more don't you think?

A drunk dial from Joe F. and Beth L. on Saturday night.

Birthday Pizza party at Julie's with great pizza, people and playing with Lasers.

Seeing a little more of Casey lately.

A potential good time at my house on Saturday.

I am alive in case anyone was wondering. I just don't have much to say. I'm trying all the anti aging products I can to stop from turning 30 next week. Let's hope it works out. Maybe I should try jumping in that new giant particle accelerator. I think they would have to run it in reverse to stop the aging process. Can it be used as a particle decelerator? Jeannie you are taking physics, please check into that and let me know.
