TGIF

While TGIF has been used for millions of years and almost everyone says it come a certain day of the week, I'm just going to pretend that I stole it from Josie today as I watched her grab a $109 token to on BCP.

However, for me TGIF stands for Thank Gawd I'm Funny because 1) Friday's mean nothing to me and 2) I'd never pick up chicks with my looks. :)

Friday was good to me mainly because it was the first day this week where I had a normal pace at work and didn't have more work than I could feasibly accomplish in my 8 hour shift.
Today was also payday and it's nice to know that, temporarily, there is actual money in my bank account.  I have one more day of work before my weekend begins and I'm really looking forward to it.

I started playing Tales of the Abyss on my 3ds and while it's fun so far it makes me realize that I really like JRPG's more than I like ARPG's.  Something about that turn based system that I really like and while I can have fun with action combat it just feels like the game becomes a button mashing experience (same reason why I've never been into fighters).

I think this is going to be my new hobby for Lunch Hour at work until the game is beat.  While I do have a bunch of other books on my Kindle that I could start reading I kind of want to be side tracked a bit.

While reading over comments from my last blog, Waffles pointed out that he has done the same push-up routine that I am currently attempting and gave the advice to take it slowly and go at my own pace because the routine, as laid out online or wherever, accelerates much faster than it probably should.
So, being physically inept I am going to heed that advice and just go at my own pace.  Today I repeated Week 1 Day 1 and my last set was 6 non-girl pushups, I feel like that is minor improvement for my 1st week. Monday  will be another Week 1 Day 1 and Wednesday will be my first attempt at Day 2.

For those of you who follow Splitter's Blog, his book The Reluctant has once again surged into the top 100 of Amazon.com's rankings.  Last I knew it was #68 in Fiction and #4 in Action/Adventure.
I believe this is a direct correlation to his "Blog Tour" that he is doing, getting the word out there to a bunch of people who would not have previously given him a chance.
For those that do read (not just blogs, but books with words, lots and lots of words) I really cannot recommend his books enough.  They mix a great deal of action and adventure with well timed and placed humor. And, right now, The Reluctant is on sale for FREE while The Willing is on sale for 99 cents.  That's all you can eat for under a buck people.

And finally, whatever I was coming down with appears to be going away.  Hopefully the scratch in my throat will be gone by Tomorrow and my weekend will be sick-free.  I found out that 5 of 6 of the people who I played poker with on Sunday also had the same issues, so I'm going to blame it on the big group orgy that we had after the game (winner chooses how to celebrate - never let an 80 year old woman win is my suggestion to you all).

    1. Trying to get you to that #1 spot my man!

      If a guy does not have a sense of humor he better have a really pretty face and a big shoe size because he's SOL.

  2. You could have simply said ," Carmel, they were standard form pushups." Didn't have to write me an entire blog post.

  3. I thought that pushup routine looked awfully familiar. Warning: It was this exact routine that had Waffles blogging about how he just had to feel up his own tits because they felt so damn good now. BE CAREFUL. lol

    Thanks for the railing and the shout out!

    1. Well, if I get to the point where I'm feeling myself up then 1) - I really really really need laid and 2)nope, don't think there is a number 2 for this one.

  4. Time to get serious about exercising. Hey, if I can do it you can, too.

    And ... if you are in a woman slump maybe you and Tony can cruise the strip looking for chicks. Hell, when Tony and I were eating in The Burger Joint we practically had to fight them off!

    1. His problem isn't lack of women. It's that the one he wanted broke his heart.

    2. Yeah, I gotz bitches coming out my britches or something.

      Though, Cruising the strip with Tony for chicks does not actually sound like a whole lot of fun. I'd rather play VBJ

  5. Good luck man. Just remember the 100 pushup thing works, just give it time, and like you said take it at your pace... in a few months you will see some SERIOUS results.

    1. I actually don't want to get to 100, I just want to get to the point where you and I can do poses in a showdown on the Las Vegas Strip!
