Figures

All week, I’ve been unable to get up on time so I could go biking before work (and then, it either rained or threatened to rain in the evening so I couldn’t go after work either.) This morning, I woke up at 6 a.m. and was good to go. Started getting dressed…

And it began to pour rain. Ugh.

I’m A Terrible Blogger

Seriously. I guess it says something about how utterly uninteresting my life is that I forget to remark on it for long periods of time. What did I do yesterday? I worked, then I went home and played Dragon Age: Inquisition. The day before that … I did exactly the same thing. Today, I expect I’ll do it again as well.

Right now, there’s nothing on television that interests me. I look at what is in theaters and am unmoved. Latest nuTrek movie? I’ll catch it on HBO in a couple of weeks. Jason Bourne comes out this week and my immediate response is why? What is left of his story? The 3rd Bourne flick was not as good as the second one, but at least it ended on a nice bookend, with Bourne once more floating in the water but now having reclaimed his life. Knowing that the director, Paul Greengrass, is a hardcore lefty, I fully expect this latest movie will be yet another anti-America screed disguised as a cool action movie. And Ghostbusters? No. Not no, but hell fuck no. I have zero interest in that crap and that’s not because I hate women or something. It just looks like crap and all of the reviews I’ve read or see convince me that yeah, it’s crap.

Haven’t been on the bike as much as I would like. Intended to go on Monday but … didn’t, then it rained real bad and has been threatening to rain more all week. Really, really need to just join a gym instead of putting that off.

So that’s me in a nutshell. Boring and bored.

Note that I did not bother mentioning the American election. IMHO, we’re pretty much screwed regardless of which petty tyrant gets into the office.

Fitness Update

Got up about 2 hours later than I intended to this morning, but still managed to get the biking in even though I very badly need to get one (or two) of my car tires replaced. Managed 16.44 miles today at just under 12 mph (average.) Wanted 20, but will try for that tomorrow.

Weighed myself after the shower and I’m currently at 251 exactly, which is 19 pounds under where I was when I started this 48 days ago. So … progress!

Wonder Woman Official poster

After the disaster that was Murderman v Mopeyman: Dawn of Mediocrity, I have low expectations for this while simultaneously hoping it reignites my interest in the DC movie universe (which is going to be a very difficult thing to do after that shitfest mentioned before.) Considering she was only of the only decent things about that movie, maybe there is still hope…I certainly have none left for Justice League.




Car Maintenance

Slow leak in driver’s side front tire. Filled it up the other day and observed a large nail or something in the tire. Looks like I know what I will be doing on Saturday…

Which sucks because I was planning on doing the biking thing that a.m. The problem I’ve noticed with the particular tire place I go to is that if you don’t get there really early, good luck in getting the work done that day. And even if you do get there early, so many other people go there (because they’re the best at what they do, sort of like Wolverine) that it may still take all day.

Hmm. Maybe I should take my bike with me, then drop off the car and use the bike to go home? Nah. Too far away. Should take laptop and work on Saturday’s Casus Belli adventure…

Today’s Experiment

Have to be at work by 10, so I rolled out of the apartment around 8, took the bike to the River and did 11 point something miles. Traffic was hideously ugly on the way back, so I deviated through back streets, got home and showered. Walked into the office about 5 minutes after 10.

Takeaway: get your ass up on time, dude. I was awake at 6, rolled over and slept for another hour, then finally got up a little after 7 and putzed around until I made the decision to leave. If I’d have left the apartment at say, 6:30 or even 7, I would have plenty of time to bike, shower, and still get into work early.

Will try again tomorrow…
