I was informed by Maria today that my blog needs updating.  I guess the days of me writing everyday have flown out the window.  You’d think with my controller being gone this week things would have been a bit calmer on the work front.  But, oh contrare my friends, they’ve haven’t. 

I think I can muster up a few stories from the week, which I’ll share in bullet point style.  Because its my blog and I’ll cry if I want to.

*Recently I’ve been reading up on a dieting/lifestyle approach called Intermittent Fasting.  Sounds old school, doesn’t it?  Its the practice of fasting 2-3 days a week.  You can do a 14-24 hour fast.  I’m not sure I could handle a 24 hours of not eating, but I’ve knocked out a couple of 14’s and 16’s this week.  And I’m still standing.  Its not as hard or bad as it sounds.  For example, I’ll finish up dinner on a Tuesday night at 8:30 and then I won’t eat again until lunch time the next day.  It’s an approach that goes back to the way humans used to eat many many moons ago.  The hunter and gatherer lifestyle.  Since breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, its hard for me to want to skip it everyday, but a couple times a week?  Not a problem.  It’s amazing how you can survive and still have mental clarity without eating for a few hours.  Read up on it if you are interested… there are lots of other health benefits but I don’t feel like delving into them right now.

*Its just about that time for TV season premiere’s.  I’ve got a pretty busy schedule this Fall:
Monday – How I Met Your Mother/The Hills
Tuesday – Biggest Loser/90210
Wednesday – Nothing comes to mind
Thursday – Grey’s/The Office
Friday – Swingtown?
Saturday – Nothing comes to mind
Sunday – Desperate Housewives/Brother’s & Sisters

*I’ve really got to stop using the word a-hole.  Its becoming a regular part of my vocab, which is fine when I know when and where its appropriate to use it (i.e. with myself or other a-holes).  Yesterday I was arriving home from work after spending 50 minutes in traffic,  and when I was pulling into my garage I had to stop because there was a line of cars waiting to get out of the garage and it was blocking me from getting to the gate.  I came to a complete stop and looked back to see that the car in front of the line was pulling out onto the street, but the car behind it wasn’t moving up to take its place because the driver was oblivious on his cell phone.  In an annoyance I loudly stated, “scoot up, a-hole!”.  Only to realize after I’d uttered the words that not only were my windows down, but so were the windows of the person I was yelling at.  Along with the car behind it.  Who was about 5 feet from me.  Nice job, a-hole.

I guess thats all I got for right now.  A little randomness for you.  But, hey its better than nothing.
