A Footnote for the Evening

by - January 17, 2010

I wanted to post again because I feel like the last post wasn't personal enough.  Isn't that funny?  I also wanted to commemorate that it was my 200th post!  Egads!  I'm electric!  Someone needs to go full stream on my ass! (Points for those who can tell me where the term 'full stream' is from).

This weekend went by WAY too fast, once again.  Yesterday Dave and I decided to walk all over the city since it was a nice day and the sun, that bastard who never comes out anymore, decided to show it's hungover face to the world.  A rare occurrence.  So we walked.  Everywhere.  And it was a great day.  I bought some books and a video game.  Can you say awesome?  I can!  Any day that is spent buying books and video games is a day that should be remembered forever and ever.  Agreed?

All that walking made me HURT.  The WALKING.  How embarrassing is that?  Here you have Kristy and Ian being absolutely amazing in their respective weight loss journeys, and I am a baby about walking.  Does anyone know that I walk to and from work everyday?  That's about at least an hour and a half of walking daily.  But since I walked for three and a half hours yesterday, stepping it up a notch (oh what a saying), stuff started to hurt.  Just goes to show me how out of shape I really am.  Good thing I have people like Josh over at The Technical Parent who inspire me to get active with stuff like this.  Oh, and the cookies.  Those inspire me too.  Thanks for the double batch friend!

A funny note about the video game I bought.  I bought Tomb Raider Underworld.  I rented this game when it first came out and was ten minutes away from beating it.  It ended up frustrating me SO MUCH that I yanked it out of my Xbox, threw it back into the case, yelled at it about how much I hated it, and promptly returned it to Blockbuster.  At least I didn't throw the controller around, which I have sometimes been known to do, all the while stating a simple yet effective "Fuck you" to the television screen.  Yes, I am one of those people.  I try to keep it to a minimum, but what can I say?

Anyway, the game was on sale at EB Games for fifteen dollars so I figured why not?  I went to a get together at my best friend's house last night and all I could think about was getting home to play the game (love you Jessi!).  Damn.  So now the beast has been unleashed and I have forgotten how much it has seduced me in the past.  I have spent so much time focusing on writing and dreaming up the different projects I will be undertaking this year that my old friend the video game has fallen by the wayside.  I can't let that happen anymore.  Not with all the good games coming out this year!

So really all I have told myself in this post is that I am going to need to find even more time in my already busy day to play video games.  Also, I need to stop being a wussy walker.  That's right.  That's just embarrassing.
