No On Prop 8

There is still time to help stop Prop 8 in California and ensure that same-sex marriages stay legal in that state.

I never give to political campaigns or things of this nature, but I did this time, because I think it's that important.

Oh, and by the way

My new thing for the next 30 days is to take my gym clothes to work with me and work out at lunchtime.

I've done it two days in a row and I feel great.

Well, except my knees. They feel crippled. But the sooner they give out completely, the sooner I can hire a hot Danish physical therapist.

Mmmm . . . hot danish.

Great. Now I'm hungry.

Preemptive Strike

Rather than writing the self-pitying, woe-is-me blog post that I feel like writing, then taking it down in a fit of remorse in the morning, I think I'll just post a picture of a dalek.

Day 22

Okay, vegetarianism is easy. I suppose if I really wanted to push myself, I'd try going vegan.

Truth be told, I tend to give up meat for Lent anyway, so this hasn't really been too difficult. There have been some times when I'd really like to eat a piece of bacon or just grab a burger, but not too many.

Now I have to decide what I'm going to do for the next month. I'm thinking of trying something really difficult like working out or writing every day. That would take some real effort and discipline. I'll think about it. Of course, I'm open to suggestions.

VP Debate

Best line of the evening:

John McCain has already tapped me.

- Sarah Palin

She may have said more after that, but I was too busy trying to rid my mind's eye of the image of McCain's saggy ass bouncing on Palin's perky . . . um . . . girl parts.

Day 1

I was reading one of those inspirational self-help websites recently where the guy suggested that people try to improve themselves in 30 day increments. Pick something and do it. He suggested trying a new diet or meditate or go to the gym, whatever.

Not long after that, a friend sent me an e-mail where a Facebook guy was asking people to be vegetarians for the month of October.

So I've decided to eat vegetarian this month.

Should be interesting.
