What is it about that song that necessitates singing along to it, no matter where and when it's playing? LOVE IT.

Also... why are there still Enzyte commercials playing during Stewart/Colbert? The Christmas one to boot. D: God, Smiling Bob was creepy. I wonder whatever happened to that guy?
kjpepper: (youtube or it didn't happen)

Yeah, I realize I'm late to the party on this (vid dated 2007) but *giggle*

Dad is downstairs on the phone having a loud conversation with someone. Not a girlfriend, he talks to them every day, and this person he hasn't spoken to since the last couple rounds of hospital cha cha. I know because he took great glee in describing the gory details of mild heart attack #3. I shake my head. Well, it's good to hear him laugh.

A few days ago Dad and I got into a fierce row about, of all things, HDTV. Mr. Grand High Poohbah of 50 Inch Flatscreen insisted he had it, I told him he didn't. It took calling Direct TV yesterday and having them actually upgrade his cable package to include the HD channels to shut him up; his main topic of conversation right now is telling anyone who can listen about what a racket cable companies have going with HDTV packages. (It turned out that while dad had his dish and receiver upgraded, no one told him he had to buy the package as well.) I again shake my head. It's actually kinda nice having CNN in HD again though - it's somehow more fun with more screen.

I am fiercely disliking the trap of depression induced apathy I keep falling into. It's bad for everything. Productivity, work, waistline, you name it. My better days happen when I can summon up the nerve to plow relentlessly through a to-do list, my worst ones are when I look at said to-do list, say "fuck it" and spend the day eating my weight in tennis rolls. Part of what's feeding it is still being behind at work, I just need to buy a case of NOS and plow through it. But as always with me, starting is always the hard part. I'd blame my environment - there's definitely a sense of feeling trapped here going on - but I know that this is completely a all-in-Andee's-head thing... it's pretty likely the feeling will follow me wherever I happen to be. So I have to remember that overcoming that should be a now thing, not a "when I move" thing. Part of what tends to make me feel better is successful execution of projects, I just sort of need to organize everything I need to do as such, both practically and in my head. I'm always happy when I actually complete something... I just need to create a cycle of doing that, rather than the current failspiral I'm on.

Anyway, today I'm at least attempting to make into one of those plow through to-do list days... off to do that some more.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
kjpepper: (seriously? (Barnabus))

yeah, I got nothing.

So I've been kind of annoyed/depressed about the climbing number on the scale lately until I looked in the mirror while dressing today and realized a couple things.

1) I haven't changed clothing sizes.

2) I seem to have picked up some definition in the calves and arms, and even a little bit in the front if I suck my tummy in a bit.

Apparently working out is accomplishing something.

Muscle notwithstanding, I'm still 20ish pounds over my comfort zone. Fucking tennis rolls.
