The answer to everything.

My good buddy and fellow Boxer-block fan Kentrik directed me to something far better than any cat with a cheeseburger.  He actually found a site with the answer to all of the deep philosophical questions of life.

Why do you not have a girlfriend?
Why do your neighbors hate you?
Why do you still live at home with your mother?
Why don't I like the French?

Why?  Because racecar!

And my personal favorite...

It's almost as awesome as 42.



220.2, actually.  As of roughly 6 pm Mountain Time time tonight, I'm down right at 20 pounds from the start of Operation Fatass.  That's roughly a third of my goal.

Go team me!

The CDC finally gets it

It seems the Centers for Disease Control has issued a warning to prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse.

As wacky as it sounds, this is actually a very good thing.  Because as Unc has said "If you're prepared for a Zombie Apocalypse, a hurricane is just a storm."

When you think about it, it's the truth.  While the odds of the dead rising and walking the Earth are pretty slim, the odds of something else occurring that would require the same preparations are far higher.

And the looks you get when you answer "What are you prepping for?" with "Zombies." are awesome.

Operation Fatass is back

Even though it only kinda left.  Sorry I've been quiet, I got myself a job a couple weeks back and have been working 60 hours/week.

Anyways, I weighed myself tonight, and I was at 228.8.  I figure I had no less than .8 pounds of assorted crap in my pockets, so call it an even 228.  That's 12 down from when this project started. Not quite on pace, but with the move, and some general attitudinal issues I had for a while, I'm more than happy to have it.  Now that I have a working scale, I promise I'll keep you updated far more frequently.


Overheard while unpacking

Bex and I were going through some boxes tonight when she found and decided to keep an inflatable fish, because

"You never know when an inflatable fish might come in handy..."

I laughed. A lot.

Justice is served

The news tonight reports (in case you've been living under a rock) that Osama Bin Laden is dead.

I'm completely good with that.  Sadly, it took a decade to do it, but finally, the architect of so much death and destruction has met his end.


Utah Grand Prix

I'm sitting in the stands at the Utah Grand Prix, and it's an excellent day for a Collosimo brat and racing at North America's longest road course.  If the pictures I took turn out, maybe I'll share.  If not, the cars were hot and  the racing was excellent.
