The Skyrim workout: Every time you encounter a screen load (so about every 30-60 seconds) drop and do about 10 push-ups or, if you are in better shape, do push-ups until the load screen disappears.  Bet you didn’t think you could combine gaming and working out.  Well I just did.


Day 5 (12/12/2011): Keeping Up…

I couldn’t be more apathetic if I tried, but then that would kind of be self-defeating (more self-defeating than my present apathy?!  Maybe.)

Day 4 (12/11/2011): Slow Start…

Nothing much happened today.  I mean that.  Almost nothing.  I ate, graded papers, went to church, graded papers, ate, graded papers, went to a party, and then sat down here to type this.  Man this is a real slow, and boring, start, to my fitness journey.

Day 3 (12/10/2011): Dealing with a Cold…

Nothing much to report other than feeling like crap.

The Set-up: Back in 2009 I got yet another attempt to advertise a product on my blog. I decided to have some fun with the salesman and his product. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did.

Subject: text link


I was curious what it would take to get a text link on your blog saying something like “Tungsten Wedding Bands” or “Tungsten Wedding Rings” with a hyperlink to our site [website address omitted]. We are a relatively new company and we are currently trying to improve our page ranking on Google. We operate on a small budget, and we would be more than willing to give you a tungsten ring from our site in exchange for a link. Let me know if this would be something that you would be interested in. Thanks for any help you can give us.

Thank You

Nothing much to report. 😦

Day 1 (12/08/2011): First Day Back on the Job

Posted: December 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

I have decided I am going to do my darnedest to post an update each day.  While some might be as short as a couple of words and a weigh-in result, I will post something.  To add an extra (and needed) hook to keep the few readers who aren’t spam bots leaving comments about erection pills, Latin booty websites, or fake Rolex watches (not to mention the web crawlers) I will also add a link (or links) to (an) interesting/hilarious/odd websites I viewed that day.  Will that keep me committed and maybe get some real people back to reading this run down old blog?  I sure hope so.

So on to the real content: Read the rest of this entry »
