Happy 2nd Blogosversary to Me

The 2nd anniversary of this blog came and went without fanfare on November 30th. I guess that shouldn’t be surprising since my posting has been very sparse this year. I blame this on two things: Facebook and a tough year of life in general.

Yes, this year, after a critical mass of friends finally joined, I became addicted to Facebook and all of the time-sucking games that go along with it. I have finally gotten myself dialed back to just playing Mafia Wars. But that still takes up more time than it should.

Life. What can I say. This year has royally sucked overall. I dealt with a period of unemployment and a multitude of other setbacks–most of which I can’t go into in such a public forum. Let’s just say that on midnight of January 1, 2010, it will be more accurate to say that I’m celebrating the end of 2009 than the beginning of 2010. I take that back. Life has its ups and downs. The downs are a time to reset and build a better future. So I am looking forward to 2010 and making the best of lessons learned in 2009 and my (mumble) years of life prior to that.

If I still have any followers, thanks for still being here. I want to strive to post regularly again. As always, I hope that my posts may make you laugh, make you think, inform you, or just make you think “what’s wrong with this guy?”

Bring on year 3!

If it’s not a father and it’s not a mother, what is it? It’s not apparent.

A man decided to join a ride-sharing program with his colleagues at work to save money. But within a week of starting it, he started having severe wrist pain. This seemed to happen only while they were driving through the tunnel–he was fine outside the tunnel. Because the tunnel was so busy, they spent quite a bit of time in there. So it was quite a painful experience for the young man. He saw a doctor the following week and was told he had a problem that is quite common nowadays: carpool tunnel syndrome.

Do Not Despair

Don’t you just hate those stupid motivational posters? As if looking at some profound picture and reading an even more profound phrase is going to turn your day around. That’s why I love Despair, Inc.’s demotivational posters. I was looking through them today and found one for blogging. I love it!

Treasure Valley Weight Loss Challenge: Month 2 Weigh-In

It’s wasn’t a good month for me in the weight loss challenge. Lots of stress and other crazy things going on took me off focus with eating better and moving more. And the results show it:

Initial weigh-in: 242

Month 1 weigh-in: 234

Month 2 weigh-in: 235

Gained this month: 1 pound

This weekend, I’m on a quick, relaxing getaway. Then next week, it’s time to re-focus and get back on track. Still 4 months to go in the challenge!
