      1) So, heh, i played my weekly softball game today (was supposed to be 3 games). Felt really good playing, i wasn't hitting very well, because i was swinging too eagerly at crap pitches, but was fast on my feet (out ran the throw once and made it safe), made a few good plays in outfield.

      2) So i'm running up on a fly, it was about 20 ft in front of me and i gad a good speed going, but last second it looks kinda like it's gonna bounce just in front of me. i'm not sure if i changed my run, or if i hit a patch of uneven ground or what, but i came down pretty hard on my left foot, rolling the foot inward, as i fell down on it, i heard POP.

      3) Yep, i broke my foot. It's the bone that goes to the pinky toe, up near the ankle. Got it casted... the real ugly? We're going to Disneyland on thursday.... Florida... in July... with a cast. Ya, i'm excited. smiley8.gif

      3 Games down, one to go.

      Its going down
      The logical progression on a the timeline
      The separation narrowed down to a fine line
      To blur the edges so they blend together properly
      Take you on an audible odyssey
      Now it's going down


      i'm not one of those people who will say the Red Wings will win tonight (nurses are very superstitious) but i will say i bloody well hope they do. 2000 EST, i'm nearly crawling out of my skin. In other related news, i've been growing my beard out since the playoffs started, and while it has grown more than i'd ever thought i'd be able, i am really eager to shave this puppy off. i don't think i look bad beardy, but it's just getting warm here and it itches something feirce. i'll have to take/post a pic of it before the shaving... which, could be as soon as tonight.

      (oh ya, comment the song title/group below and get some mods!)

      Addendum: Can't beleive they lost that game, good news is, most of the Pens scores were on Detroit goof ups, as long as the Wings can keep it together i'm still optimistic. GG Pitsburgh

      oh god... i'm horrible. i took apart a fan we had, since it was filthy, from being used and sitting at the house. (i try to be a fairly handy guy, sometimes though, not so much) i was somewhat concerned because about 30% of fans i've taken apart in the past, don't work properly when put back together. So when i took this one apart, washed it (thank you "do it yourself powerwash car wash") then put it back together, i was slightly worried it wouldn't work right. Gladly... it did. Then i said it.... i couldn't help myself... i'm ashamed, but i have to relate this, so i may be brutalized accordingly... outloud, to myself.... "i love it when a fan comes together..."

      In other news, we spent the whole weekend working at Debb's house, i think it's actually ready for market now... which is good, since it's supposed to be listed today. We're gonna lose money... i hate the housing market.

      Also, i just slammed my pinky in a window... it's fairly numb right now, it's kinda odd... of course, that could be the rum too. And now... bedtime, i gotta get up for work in 4ish hours. Hope u're well.

    • Day 3 & 4

      11 years ago

      i hold on so nervously, to me and my drink;
      i wish it was cooling me.
      But so far, has not been good, it’s been shitty,
      And I feel awkward, as I should.
      This club has got to be, the most pretentious thing,
      Since I thought you and me.
      Well I am imagining, a dark lit place, or your place or my place.


      Had to combine 2 days on this journal. Had to work two in a row (friday night sucked major, but saturday was a decent night) then on 4ish hours of sleep i played softball, 3 games total, 2 were double header. Heh, so i was wicked tired.

      Well I’m not paralyzed, but, I seem to be struck by you.
      i want to make you move, because you’re standing still.
      If your body matches, what your eyes can do,
      you’ll probably move right through, me on my way to you.


      Basically, the diet is going well... but i am sore as a 10lb. lobster in a 2lb. pot.... or so i'd imagine. i'm kinda torn, situps/pushups to keep up the exercise or take a day off of the exercise portion... i'd rather not work out and then have to take something for the soreness if instead a day off could help me heal up... not sure which to do.

      Anywho'll... about time for work, hope u guys doing well, really enjoying getting back in touch with you guys! Name the song and get some mods... i LOVE this song for getting the blood flowing.

    • Day 2

      First of all get off the wall, it's time to party so have a ball.
      We slowed it on down so get the hell up, like a volcano I'll erupt!
      We got determination - bass and highs, White Castle fries only come in one size.
      What you see is what you get, and you ain't seen nothing yet!

      Day 2 of my diet / exercise thinger. Going pretty good so far, haven't really had any urges to fall off the wagon... of course, a McD's double cheese burger sounds flippin' good right now, but... meh. So, if u haven't noticed, day 1 was 5/1, how is day 2 5/3? well, i don't have normal days ok... ah, night shift. Day 1 actually lasted 21 waking hours... so with my life i figured it best to go by time's slept and awake, yadda yadda.
      Strong as an ox fresh out the box, the crowd is so live they're coming in flocks,
      and when we go on the crowd goes off, it's all hard rock there's nothing soft

      So, everyday i'm trying to cycle exercises, day 1 was situps & pushups, today was cycling. i was pretty psyched cuz this has been my 3rd time out since the weather got nice. The 1st time out i did 5miles, took 45mins and was pretty beat. Today i did 5miles and took 25mins, and if not for fact i gotta sleep i could go more. Really kicked up my pace. Now, the first day was kinda slow cuz i had to ride to get air in tires, which really wore me out riding on flats smiley8.gif . Still, definate progress. Bad part is, thanks to the interweb i figured out i burned about 310 calories, kinda sux a good workout could be crushed by a Krispy Kreme.. but, so it goes.

      Got my song today from my bike ride, was cycling through songs (ha... pun) and found this and it's kinda high energy helped me out. Gotta thank Ambeh though for putting the group in my brain. And no, that's not how you spell her name, but it is how you say it. smiley8.gif Either way, first to comment name the group & song and get some mods, cuz.... that's how i roll.

    • Day 1

      11 years ago

      mebriwn

      Okay folks, i figure this is the perfect medium to log this sorta crap, so stick with me and i'll try to keep it somewhat slightly maybe possibly comical.
      Risin' up, back on the street , did my time, took my chances.
      Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet, just a man and his will to survive!

      i'm starting.... DUN DUN DUN, a diet. See, here's the thing, about a year ago i went in for a physical, during which time, i checked my cholesterol... 192. Not terrible... kinda. >200 is high risk for heart disease and stroke... i'm a flippin nurse, i gotta fix that.
      So, Doc' says, give it 6 months of diet and exercise and we'll see what happens. i did alot of diet changes. i killed all fast food. First 6 months, NO fast food, really watched what i ate. After that, some occasional fast food, but never the really greasy junk. Ate ALOT of fish & fiber (Omega-3 increases HDL, fiber binds with bile which is made from cholesterol). Only thing i didn't really crack down on... exercise.
      So many times, it happens too fast, you change your passion for glory.
      Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past, you must fight just to keep them alive!

      So, i go back to check cholesterol... it went up, 30pts, now 222. Fek, are you kidding me? i couldn't really exercise too much (i bike mostly and play softball, neither works in Michigan winters)... So, now i'm on Zocor (only 10mg @ bedtime) not terrible. Since, i've kinda fallen off the wagon, started gobbling burgers like a dollar hooker outside the 99cent store (which i think would be alot).
      Face to face, out in the heat, hangin' tough, stayin' hungry .
      They stack the odds 'til we take to the street, for we kill with the skill to survive!

      SO, here i am, diet and exercise program. Problem? i have little will power. My tendancy is to start out strong and kinda peter out. Which is kinda why i'm putting it up here, figure, if i gotta fess up to folks i like, maybe i'll stick to it. So ya. Day #1, starting day, i'm at 92.7kg (putting it in metric cuz its more medical and i figure u'll have to do the conversion to know i'm a secret fatty). I'm doing this crazy cleanse thing with Debb, which isn't bad, lots of fruit, meal supplements (i generally eat 1-2meals a day only anyway really), and working out. Today was situps and pushups, tomorrow, back on the bike, been doing 5miles a day, gonna try to double that in the next week.
      Risin' up, straight to the top, have the guts, got the glory.
      Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop, just a man and his will to survive!

      So that's it, first day went good, and accept for the urge to punch a little boy for his peanut butter sandwich (sorry babe, it was only a flash impulse), it went fine. Hopefully, i don't wuss out on this, i do want to drop about 22-33kg (10-15lbs roughly).
      Name the song (the only song possible when starting an exercise program BTW) and get some mods. Also, ever had something you really wanted but kept giving up on? For me it's either this or writing.

      Oh boy, that was a good nap.
      5 months? Really?
      Ok, i guess at that point it actually counts more as hibernation... but dang it, it's just amazing what a fella can do with a few items from work, an orogastric feeding tube, foley catheter, fecal collection bag and a bed that turns ya every 15 minutes... i tell ya, good times.
      At any rate, missed you guys, i appreciate those of you who've gotten in touch with me via this forum or others to let me know u were thinkin' of me.
      well expect me to be calling you to see,
      if you're ok when i'm not around,
      asking if you love me.
      i love the way you make it sound.
      calling you to see, do i try too hard to make you smile
      to make a smile...

      Can't really say it's been one thing or another that's kept me away. Gonna have to blame the snowball effect... so, how to sum up several months at once?
      1) Hawaii - AWESOME, can't begin to describe how incredible it was.
      2) Marriage - again, hard to describe, kinda like a big long date where it's hard to distinguish the person your dating from yourself.
      3) Work - still friggin nuts. Heh, it's weird to work in a place that sometimes drives you crazy, that (like any job) u would rather stay home and play games and yet when your there, swamped, running to get stuff done, u still love every second.

      K, that's all i'm writin' for now. Sorry it's not a funny journal, that's another thing that held me from login in, kinda felt i should come back with a "comedic bang" as it were... but, in the words of a wise wise man, "F* it dude, let's go bowling"

      Oh right, name the song/band from lyrics in italics, get some mod pts... those still cool?

      Wow, it's been way too long since i've signed in. Not that i've forgot about you guys, miss you all and am looking forward to catching up with how things have been with each of you. Just seems like all my time recently has been otherwise detained for some reason. Ever get so caught up in life that you forget to live it? That's me lately. i've been trying to do some things to "smell the roses" as it were, i found a nice way home from work that has a TON of trees and landscaping (and million dollor houses, boy do i feel low class in my rust bucket driving through that, heh). At any rate, not that the little things have been getting to me, just seems like i had this one huge thing stressing me out. Now, i can hardly remember... seems like i should know... silly me.....

      wait....
      WTF, it's WEDDING DAY!!!!!! AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

      Fleury was awsome these past few games. He made some of the greatest saves I've ever seen. Ossgood played very well too. Both teams were great but the pens just didn't have it. The red wings are a good team but when there facing my time in the finals I cant show any favoritism towards them, lol, you know how that goes. Aside from that, it was a great series and we had a good run.

      And that Fleury goal, holy crap, I was shocked.

    • Lacrimosa

      11 years ago

      Haha, yep! Seeing that goal made with 6 on 4 had me freaking out and screaming "NO! NOT AGAIN!" It was almost too much for me to handle. Then when the Penns took that final shot I was like "NO FUCKING WAY" and by some sheer act of God, it didn't make it.

      When I saw the replay, I almost shat myself.

      Now I'm just counting down the days till I can see the Wings (hopefully) play at the pond next season.

      11 years ago

      Which is easily trumped by, "HANK! You said the double D word!"

      But Hank does have the better lines, but Dean is the more relatable one, mostly because he's at least smart enough to know who Abe Lincoln was and that it's not appropriate to wear a Batman costume on a date.

      Oh, and what about the stellar line, "I look like Santa's magic janitor."

      Right. Well here in Florida, it is 1000 degrees outside and anywhere I would walk to is unreasonably far; however, everywhere is close enough to not use too much fuel. Besides, I use Ethos in my truck which improves my gas mileage, makes required maintenance less frequent and cuts down the emissions from my exhaust dramatically. I take other steps as well so the gas I get ends up going a long ways.
