It Has (Already) Begun

I've been back to work for almost a week now, and I already find myself finding excuses to stay at the computer a little bit longer in the morning -- I mean, just look at the last time this blog was updated and ponder why I'm doing it right now.

For whatever reasons, here I sit, in need of readying myself for the day (and a long one it will be; tonight is the community gathering to introduce all of the school's athletic teams, which includes swimming, reminding me I need to get a few words together) and, instead, writing to you. While it's not quite as bad as Office Space, where every day was the worst day of the protagonist's life, I am already feeling the stress of an academic year that has yet to even begin. Hoo-boy.

Enough procrastinating, then. It's off to become presentable before heading off to school. If I don't see you tonight in the gym, accept an early thanks for listening...or, in this case, reading.

The NeXT Level

The original post was rather disgusting, so I'll save you the mental image (but if you really want to know, you can read it here) and just post what has to be one of the best forum responses ever:

You can't put anything past an obese person. They've already proven they can take it to the next level.

That just really says it all. Except, that I hope I never have the motivation, or lack there of, to take whatever "it" is to that level. Hope you don't either. Thanks for reading.
