Anyway the coast is clear for now when it comes to getting some writing done. I'll probably apply for a real job within a month or two, but for now I'm excited about just having some creative time without the specter of work looming. Even part time work can be disruptive, especially when you stay in so late that you come home too tired to get anything done. That's not fun.
I've decided to accede to leopardprints's demands, because she has that 'I might be crazy' glint in her eye..not to mention coming off her nose, her ears, her tongue, nipples, and all sorts of other places that I for one would never dream to adorn with metal. She may even have a wrist piercing, she's nuts like that.
So with today as a starting point I'll post some sort of fitness update every couple weeks. Right now the # of pounds lost=0 because well, today's the starting point and it would be really weird if that were not the case. In reality I've probably lost about 4 pounds since the treadmill arrived, which is not horrible considering how many ups and downs there have been with it and the fact that I've definitely lost more fat than that. I'm not so terribly worried about the weight, at least for now, though if things settle down in about a month I will be and may even return to an official diet, fun. I've been trying to avoid that because diets tend not to last and weight that goes down fast returns fast.
By the way, just when I think conservatives can't be any less sensitive and caring a guy like Bill Murchison comes along. In describing the licentious nature of the 60's Murchison actually says that for it to occur it was necessary "prestigious universities such as Princeton to start boarding male with female students, as if it were Auschwitz or something." That's right. Because having male and female students live in the same dorms is EXACTLY the same as creating a murder factory for Jews. Look, I'm not Mr. PC. I've made holocaust jokes, some of which I'm proud of, but you can't seriously make that comparison. It's just unfathomable. I mean I'm actually speechless when faced with someone who would compare promoting sexuality to GENOCIDE. I lived for one semester in a mixed dorm and while people got laid very few of them had their hair fall out from starvation or got gassed, dutch ovens not included.
iconoclast as the archconservative you are, defend YOUR BOY and his metaphor, please.
