I was going to write a Phat History Lesson, but I haven’t gotten the picture that was sent to me scanned yet. I think that the picture is important for the story, since it relates directly to the mission that I’m going to tell you about. Instead, I’m going to write about the few thoughts that I’ve had during my two week hiatus. Believe me when I say it was only a few thoughts, as I try not to tax myself by thinking that often.
World Cup soccer has been front and center at my house. Despite most Americans not really caring for the sport of soccer, I feel it’s important to support the American team as much as possible (even if they lose 3 to 0), especially since they play in such a hostile environment. Most soccer fans are fanatical and they tend to take the game to a point that makes them look like blood thirsty morons that like to say stupid things. So screw everyone else; Go USA!
I did get to watch the Mexico vs. Iran match over the weekend. It was hard to know who to cheer for. Do you cheer for the team that represents a country that’s invading yours or do you cheer for a country that is being run by a mad man that wants nuclear weapons so he can destroy the JOOOOOOS? Plus the flags for both the countries look almost alike. Well, the Iranians do use a more sissy green on their flag.
I’ve almost been blogging a year. I’m not sure if this is an accomplishment or if it means I don’t know when to quit. I think I’ve matured a lot since starting this thing, and that means I’ve become less funny. I look back through the archives and say to myself, what the hell was I thinking that day.
I had a chance to actually speak to CUG. It’s kind of surreal to speak to some one that you’ve never met. I guess that’s why I never called one of those phone sex lines. I think that I impressed my Yankee friend with my stellar grasp of the English language and by not using the word y’all once during the conversation. Busting stereotypes one conversation at a time.
Tomorrow I will go to the gym for the first time in 5 years. I waited till the middle of the week to go back so that way my arms should work again in time for me to mow the yard this weekend. I’ll probably loose a lot of weight just because I won’t be able to get a fork close to my mouth for a few days after I work my triceps out. I’ll also start doing some cardio by using the elliptical runner. I hope I don’t slip off of it, because it looks like it can do a lot of damage if I get tangled up in it.
I hope that this last two weeks off will be the last time I spend that much time off from my blog. I can’t promise anything though. I’ll do my best and keep everyone posted on my experience at the gym and hopefully will be able to get the Phat History lesson done here in the next few days. Thanks for reading everyone.
