Jeez, I blink my eyes and it's THREE days later!

As you see, Blogger has a new "check box" option to rate your posts. This sets up the possibility of people fictionalizing their entries just so the get good grades.

How do you folks feel about this?

If you respond you have two options: use your keyboard to manually type your response, thus telling me exactly what's on your mind. Or, check one of the generic boxes below...

If I weren't balance challenged I'd get a bike like this.

Friday, December 18, 2009...Dance Your Ass Off.

I just got done watching "Dance Your Ass Off" while eating lunch.

The contestants in this show start out chubby, and compete for the biggest weight loss. In the website's words: "Twelve finalists, nearly 3,000 lbs, one goal -- to go from an eating machine to a dancing machine..."

While watching it, I took what they said about living as a fat person as true.

But, how do I know that they're being honest!?!? Afterall, the show needs ratings to survive. Maybe the show's producers secretly script the show, and market as reality to get ratings?

If this is how it really is, we'll have a generation growing up thinking that fiction is true. And their lives will mimic this false reality. In short time, we'll be living in a world created humans...

There's a sci-fi novel in this idea somewhere!

I wish I would've known about these bikes when my daughter was a little one. Bikes like this are a very nice thing to see. My best friend Mike is having a baby - well, actually, his wife Phyllis is doing the hard work, but you know what I mean. I'm definitely going to recommend one for him and his future tyke.

My daughter, Veronica, likes to invent her own, sometimes very peculiar, games.

For example, I just got done playing one of her games called "Who'swhatwinswhat".

This game is played with two people. One person closes their eyes and, at the same time, makes their limbs limp. The other person manipulates the limp person's limbs to whatever position the other person wants. For example, while my eyes were closed, I felt my hand mess up my hair and my finger go up my nose.

The manipulator tells the limp person when they can open their eyes. It's very important to be visibly embarrassed by your new position.

The manipulator then counts to ten. Whoever says the phrase "Who'swhatwinswhat" first wins, and gets to be the manipulator.

I honestly have no clue where she got the phrase "who'swhatwinswhat", but I have to admit it's a very creative phrase for a very creative game
