All I want for Xmas

It's funny, in the past few weeks I've had a few customers snap at me because I wished them a "Happy Holidays" where as they want me to say Merry Xmas instead.
Shit, Xmas was still a month away the first time I said it - how about people stop being so f'n sensitive and just accept some joy instead of sucking it all away with their closed minded beliefs?

Today I came home and, for the first time, did a routine from Jillian Michaels.  My love seems to like her and she is a great personality on the Fat Person show she is part of.  On Xbox fitness her first workout of (30 day shred or something like that) is free and then you need to pony up a little bit of money to unlock all of it.  I'm cool with doing the free one for a week and seeing what I think about stepping up my game afterwards.

Lets just say that my ass was thoroughly kicked.  I feel like I did OK for my first time through it and my "score" was good. (lets face it, this is part of a Video Game system and we are in a golden age of Video Games so of course there are going to be scores and rankings and stuff.)  I wasn't perfect and I have a lot of room for improvement especially with certain exercises.  There were several cardio exercises where I just flat out had to quit for about half of the workout because I couldn't breathe but I pushed myself as far as I could.   There were several exercises where I was trying and I barely scored anything because what I was doing was not enough to even register as actual physical exercise.   Oh Jillian, I'm still exhausted an hour later and want to nap (but I need to get my tush in gear and get ready for work).

I'm going to do this routine one more time over the weekend and get some other exercise in on the other day, probably just cardio, as next week is going to be Inventory week which means 12 hour days and I'll be too tired to actually get exercise in before or after work.

Baby Steps.

In recreational news I am still playing Diablo 3 and started playing Grand Theft Auto 5 finally.  About 6 hours into it and enjoying it much better than 4 which I stopped after less than 10 hours of play.  Still doing a little bit of Knack on the PS4 now and then as well as I debate whether or not I want to bother trying to platinum it or not.
I'm also playing Paper Mario Sticker Stars on the 3DS.  So, most of my systems have some sort of game that I'm progressing in.  Maybe after the holidays I'll be able to set up a schedule where I can play once or twice per week regularly instead of just on random occasions.
Biggest problem is cannot play games like GTA5 anytime the child is around because .... well... because that game is just nasty in both content and language.

Now, to put some clothes on and get some caffeine in me so that I can function at work before my weekend off.  Oh, inventory week is going to suck like always.


  1. ppl need to chill on this keep christ in christmas and such. when i was working at family dollar in cali . i would just say have a great day. dont give the zealots any ammo to engage in a conversation about this stupid topic. i fucking hated the end of the month inventory ,then the first of the month and food stamps and such get reloaded. DOUBLE WHAMMY. good luck with the holiday shoppers. LMAO

    1. I don't need luck - I just need beer afterwards lol

    2. hopefully not light beer. i know u r on a diet but light beer is just gross. lmao

    3. I've always been more of a light beer guy. Blue Light is one of my favorites though not available in Vegas. I also love Mich Ultra. I have been trying out a lot of others lately though. Been on a Pumpkin Beer kick and tracking it all with the Untapped app that a friend turned me onto.

  2. its the people who say happy holidays instead of Merry Christmas who take the joy out of it and try to push their version of PC on the rest of us, not the other way around.

    1. Tony, there are more holidays than just Xmas.

      Everyone can have their own beliefs but it's the people who get bitchy and tell me I'm doing it wrong by saying "holidays" instead of "Xmas" who are taking joy out of everything because they don't allow others to have their own beliefs.

      What if I don't celebrate Xmas? Why should I tell others"Merry Xmas" if this is something that I don't participate in?

      So Tony, what are you doing for your Mom and Son for Xmas this year? Because we know that if you don't do something then you are taking the joy out of the holidays for your own family.

    2. really,tony. what version r THEY pushing on us? just celebrate like u always do trying to pickup crackheads,playing VBJ,and eating pork and beans.
