I am watching Larry King live right now. They are talking about diets and what makes you fat and that kind of stuff. It is a really interesting discussion. There is a guy who wrote a book called “Good Calories Bad Calories”. He brings up a lot of ideas that are really interesting like exercise can make you fat and dieting can as well. It is a pretty good discussion. A lot of things that the medical community tells us about how to lose weight are not substantiated. So there is a big debate between this guy and a heart doctor and an exercise guru and some woman who lost 100 lbs on a reality TV show. It is pretty heated on the show.

I know I need to cut out carbs and sugars and that kind of shit. I am trying to not eat before I go to bed and fill my stomach with water. It is so hard to do sometimes. I have very little self control when it comes to that kind of stuff.

Today was the last day of my vacation. I am going to definitely have to take another one soon with the stress that I had to deal with earlier this week. I also feel like I really didn’t do anything this week either. I spent most of my time indoors wasting the days away. I really don’t feel like being around people though. I try to shop when there aren’t that many people at the stores, and will leave if I feel like the store is too crowded. I hate dealing with selfish assholes who feel like they have to show their dominance by not getting out of your way. I deal with assholes too much at work to deal with their shit on my time. I know I have discussed this before, but I have grown a real hatred for people. I hate dealing with them. I hate how they can be assholes. I look at everyone I see and wonder if I have ever had to deal with them.

Today’s walk:
4138 steps
1.959 mi
111.7 cal

I am all hot and sweaty from walking around the building. Today I walked around six times and I walked faster than I normally do. I probably could have walked around another two times since I had the time, but I didn’t feel like it.

I am up to 60 calls again today, it has been busy busy. I don’t understand why we are so fucking busy either.

Today I did my usual of paying bills the day after pay day. The money quickly goes away. I am worth nothing again.

I took a bunch of pictures today for you (not) enjoyment, will post those when I get home. So ya.

On Monday I went to Scottrade to see how the orders were that I put in. Apparently the orders you put in cancel in a month if your stocks don’t get to the level you indicate to bid into them. So I put them back in with some levels that were more closer to the actual market value. I also added a couple of stocks as well. All but one have gone through the last couple of days. The stocks that I have invested in are Tofutti (TOF) (This one has not been bought into yet) Galaxy Nutritional Foods (GXYF.OB), Earthfirst Technologies (EFTI.OB) (This is a company based in Tampa that is into alternative fuels, should be fun to watch where this one goes over the next few years right now it is $0.0560 a share. Hopefully will go gangbusters, especially after Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio’s announcement into her test pilot program with ten cars in the Tampa fleet going into hybrids and herself using one as well.) And Hain Celestial Group (HAIN).

My weekend was spoiled by rain storms. On Monday Carol, Chasie and I went to a place on Central called Carribean Cafe which had a few veggie options and they had a veggie sandwich which had Tempeh on it! It was really good, Chasie had them put portabella mushrooms on it too. The black bean soup was vegan, and it was really yummy. On Tuesday we went to Tijuana Flats and had some really good Mexican. Other than that we watched movies. One of the movies we watched Stranger Than Fiction, which I thought was pretty brilliant. I really liked the movie, and it was good to see a different side to Will Ferrell. The story was really good and original too. I am going to have to watch one part of it over again because I didn’t understand one part of it, it may be a plot hole, but I want to go back to it.

Today I walked around the building three times and then it started raining… I forgot my pedometer so I don’t know how much I walked. Maybe 1/2 a mile. I did weigh myself today as well, I am at 205.9. Still on a decline, just not as fast as I would like. (link for me – Create dynamic chart

Starting today the leads are going to be off and on the residential line. I was on residential until lunch time. It was refreshing because the customers weren’t mad and angry and they appreciated me for helping them out. It was really cool. And it was easy work too. I pretty much restarted routers and modems all day. Now I am back in the leads line and back into the mean people queue.

The new season of Sopranos starts tonight! I am really excited. I can’t wait until I get home and watch it. Should be good.

Today I did a very bad thing. I made a big batch of Thai curry and I ate a huge portion of it. I feel guilty of doing so. I decided to use a plate and I should have used a bowl to force the portion smaller, and I didn’t and I ate the whole thing. I am a bastard.

Today’s walk:
4292 steps
2.032 mi
115.8 cal

Tomorrow I am going to hang out with Carol and Chasie. We were going to go to the Busch Gardens however plans have changed since Chasie has to see the chriopractor tommmorow. So I don’t know what we are going to do. I am getting kind of tired of doing the same old same old all the time and want to do something differeent. Maybe I should suggest going to The Pier and going to the ghetto aquarium that they have in there.

Something. I think I am going to take my pedomiter with me to see how far I walk. i was going to take it with me to the Busch Gardens to see how far I walk. Maybe I should go next week and see.

So I need ideas for pictures, any requests or suggestions?

Every time I go in to pay rent I get that look like, God, he is paying his rent we can’t evict him. I don’t know, I just feel like I am not well liked there. Fucking assholes. I want to move into a house down in Gulfport. I need to spend some time looking in the next few months.

So I haven’t been doing too great on the exercise thing. It has been a week since I have walked and I forgot to weigh in today. I am such a looser. Blah.

So that is all.

I think that I am going to try out the Google docs and use that to write my book whilst I am at work. That way I don’t have to worry about shuffling files around when I am in the mood to write. I will save the files locally when I am at home so I will always have a copy in case something happens. Gmail has always been reliable for me but you never know.

I am really tired, I need sleep. This working a lot of hours sucks. I am not a young man anymore. Getting old sucks.

I made some updates and changes to the sites today. I was having an issue with the contact forms that I put in place that went through askmiet. Upgrading to the latest askimet fixed that issue and I was successful in sending test emails. Now lets see how sucessful askmiet is in stopping the spam.

I pretty much slept all day today. I took it easy since I am working an overnight shift tonight. I really should have done a bacth of laundry, but I put it off because I really wasn’t awake all that much. I did do a weigh in when I woke up and I weigh 208.4. I have lost three lbs so far. Not much, but at least I am going in the right direction. For some reason the scale wouldn’t measure my body fat, it kept on erroring out on me even after several attempts. Hopefully it isn’t broken. I paid over $50 for that scale.

I am toying with the idea of writing a cook book. I think that I can put a small one together. I want to include ideas and tips and use recipes that for the most part use common easy to get ingredients. I am thinking about dedicating the first chapter to ingredients or if it isn’t enough, making a long introduction or something. I have a pretty good idea of pieces now. I need to start putting together an outline and putting my ideas on paper before I forget them.

I got my first aid and cpr cards today. They are good for three years, so I won’t have to retake every year like I thought. Maybe they extended the time that it is good for since I last was certified.

Six more hours to go.

Ignorance and Fear in Amerika

Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.
-Aldous Huxley

Isn’t it curious how the christianists are willing to jump on the science bandwagon when it suits them? And even if the science is still sketchy and inconclusive, if it can possibly seal their agenda, they are all over it. There is conclusive evidence that the world is round and revolves around the sun, yet you don’t hear about christianists jumping on that bandwagon.

And have you ever wondered why the Southern Baptists are so crazy? Look no further than their leaders.

Case in point- R. Albert Mohler Jr, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kentucky put forth in his blog that if science can prove that gayness is biological, then there ought to be a way to “cure” it before a baby is born… say with a patch the mother can wear on her belly that would alter the baby’s hormones. Mohler says it would be biblically sound to alter a baby genetically before it’s born. Is he suggesting that God made a mistake when he invented gayness? Isn’t that a sin? Perhaps God created gayness in order to help scientists segregate the “stupid gene” as displayed so prominantly by religio-fascists.

Are the christianists funding scientists to discover the gene that makes people eat shell fish, an abomination that comes before the abomination of gayness in Leviticus? Perhaps Mr Mohler should check with the Catholics who have supercharged baptisms that wipe away original sin.

I love it how the xtians will deny science like evolution but will use science to their own advantage. I remember watching Jesus Camp where there was this guy lecturing to children about how they shouldn’t believe in science and he was using a laptop and a projector to present his lecture. How fucking hypocritical is that? Don’t believe in the science of evolution and deny science in general but yet take the advantages that science has brought to you? Just like the bible. They pick and choose what they want to use to their own personal agenda and the rest they ignore. The old testament is full of stupid laws that through the miracles of modern medicines, science and technology no longer applies. hell, the reason why Jews don’t eat pig is because pig rotted way too fast and got Trichinella. now with modern refrigeration that can be contained a lot more easily. Maybe the bible thumpers who don’t believe in science needs to throw away their refrigerators and live pre-electricity. Heck, they all should live like Quakers.

I didn’t walk today. I didn’t feel like it. Tomorrow I am working an over night shift so I won’t be walking tomorrow either. Tomorrow is weigh in day too. I am scared.

Vegan pancakes

1 cup unbleached white flour
1/4 cup teff flour
2 Tbsp. vegan sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/8 tsp. ground coriander
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1 1/4 cups vanilla soy milk
2-3 Tbsp. vegetable oil


1. Mix all dry ingredients together.
2. Whisk in wet ingredients until relatively smooth. A few lumps are OK. Don’t overmix, as this can make the pancakes a little tough.
3. Brush some oil onto a pan and heat over medium heat for about 30 seconds.
4. Drop the batter onto the pan. When the top starts to bubble just slightly, flip it and heat for a short while longer until both sides are light brown. Brush the pan with oil before each new set of pancakes and note that cooking time will get progressively shorter as the pan heats up.
5. Serve and garnish however you like it.

Today on my way to work I was on Roosevelt and waiting for the light on 49th st / Bay Side bridge and I swear to Earth Mother that there were at least five cars that were turning on to Roosevelt well after the light turned green. Sickens me. That intersection needs a camera.

My schedule changed again today. Now I have Monday and Tuesdays off. Fucking sucks because I had something planned on April 1, and now I have to use one of my personal days to do it when it should have been a normal day off. Really frustrating. This is twice in a month and a half that they have randomly switched my days off without any consultation or heads up. Luckily there was availability to allow me to take the day off. I would have probably forced the day off anyway since I have already spent money to go to see Dan Piraro.

Oh, and my ears are all feeling pressure, like they need to be popped. I hope I am not getting an infection. They started feeling this way yesterday and today it is worse. I can hardly hear out of my left ear.
