We interrupt your regular programming to bring you this special announcement:


I bit the bullet and paid for my own domain the other day.  The only change that has come is that now, instead of being it’s just  If you proactively navigate to it will automatically convert to, however if you’re one of the people who subscribes to my blog via Google Reader (or something like it), you will need to update your information to get my posts to come through.

I found that out the hard way, because I’m a narcissist who subscribes to his own blog.  Love me anyway.

Anyway, this will be the last post to come from the .wordpress account.  From here on out everything will come from so if you want to keep reading, please update your subscriptions!


We now return you to your regular prog- blog reading.  Good night.

Nobody Thinks This Is Funny But Me

One of my favorite blogs to read when I need a good laugh, The Bloggess has a tag on her blog “Nobody thinks this is funny but me”.  It’s almost never true, of course, but I think today, that’s probably going to be a perfect tag for this post.  I forgive you.


I was working on my menu for next week.  You know, the one that comes up on my nifty little website that has weekly meal plans and exercise plans?  You know, the one that I’ve done a pitiful job of following for months now?  You know, the one that I could actually do a pretty decent job of controlling my weight and getting into shape if I’d just follow it?  You know the one for which I’ve been paying for over a year, even though I only half-@$$ed follow it…  Yeah, that one.

I was working on next weeks menu, and I came across a menu item, for breakfast that I did not want.  One of the things I like about this website is that it provides the menu, but then you can substitute anything they suggest that you don’t like for something that you do.  You gotta know, every time they suggest “brussels sprouts” I hit that swap button faster than you can say, “ew gross.”

I confess that I usually change the breakfasts they suggest because I don’t have a lot of time, or gumption, in the mornings to prepare the smoothies they recommend (not to mention I only own two blenders and that’s a lot of dish washing if I follow their suggestions.)  I usually change breakfast

These were the suggested alternatives… FOR BREAKFAST!! :

Now you know why I like this program!
