The Wii Fit does a whole body analyzing thing and calculates your BMI.Â WifeGeeding’s was normal, and her Mii character did a nice little cheer.Â After the Wii analzyed me it determined I was obese per my BMI, and it changed my Mii’s appearance to be more chubby and it was left shaking its head in disappointment.
The Wii recognized my birthday.
Surprisingly, you can get a pretty decent workout and get a decent sweat going on from a Wii Fit workout, and I like how it tracks your daily progress, even the workouts you do outside from the unit.
Most of my close friends were nice enough to remember my birthday.Â However, there’s one or two I think only remember it because of modern technolgy.Â I’m not trying to knock them, but I think it’s true and hey, do what you gotta do and knowing they care enough to contact me on that day is a blessing itself no matter how they remembered.
There’s one friend whose birthday I always remember, but he has never remembered mine, and I have to admit it hurts my feelings.
Birthdays are different when you have no living parents.
WifeGeeding and I ate lunch at Abuelo’s for my birthday.Â My half-Asian tongue is developing an appreciation for Mexican food as of late, and this was my first time in an Abuelo’s in years.Â In terms of quality, it’s some of the best Mexican food around, not to mention, the atmosphere was splendit.
Speaking of atmosphere, WifeGeeding and I debated over this painting for about ten minutes until the waiter came by and ruled in my favor.Â In the lower right hand corner, we were trying to identify what kind of animal that person was sitting on.
I correctly guessed it was an elephant, WifeGeeding thought it was a donkey.Â I told her that I knew she only had one eye, but if she really thought that was a donkey then I was no longer going to let her get behind a steering wheel.Â In short, we found out the painting symbolizes knowledge.Â The old man is funneling his knowledge and of course the books and elephant are supporting symbols of the theme.Â I thought that was kind of deep for a painting haning in a Mexican restaurant, but it turns out you can go to the Abuelo’s website and read up on their artwork.
Other than some restaurant in Disney World, Abuelo’s has the best sangria.
I don’t normally drink mainly because I don’t like the taste of alcohol.Â I also think I may be alergic to alcohol as I feel flushed right after a drink and there’s (TMI Alert) a slight burning sensation when I urinate.
One last thing about Abuelo’s, our waiter placed some paper drink napkins on our table then sprinkled salt on top of them so they napkins wouldn’t stick to our drinks.Â That’s the first time I’ve ever seen such a thing.
Baskin-Robbins ice-cream cake is the bomb.Â The secret is to make sure it’s thawed.
As a kid, I remember my parents teaching me to call all adults Mr, Ms. or Mrs something-or-another as a form of respect.Â But in today’s world, I do not know of any parents that tell their kids to do the same.Â I just turned 33 over the weekend, all my friend’s kids call me Keith.Â I have never been called Mr. Geeding, and I would have to admit that would feel a bit weird at first.Â However, I did run into one of my former students coming out of an IHOP once and she introduced me to her kids as Professor Geeding.Â That was comical.
“God’s grace is sufficient to give us what we need. We just have to remember to ask for it.”Â That quote comes from a friend’s grandmother.Â That friend doesn’t post often enough on her blog.
I’ve always liked McCain, I really wish he would have won his party’s nomination back in 2000; but I was absolutely shocked by his VP pick.Â If there was a part of me that considered voting for him before, that’s done now with his VP pick.Â From mayor of a town of less than 7,000 to a first term governor who hasn’t even completed two years doesn’t give me the confidence that she can be an effective president should McCain be elected and then something unfortunate happens to him.Â It’s kinda like someone going from the mailroom to CEO in six years.Â I also don’t think McCain will be alive for the next 8 years if elected.Â It all kind of reminds of the short lived Geana Davis drama on ABC called Commander in Chief.
I’ve only found one picture of Palin with her hair let down, but I also found a YouTube video of her on Craig Ferguson with it let down as she was doing some schtick.
Speaking of Palin on YouTube, here’s a clip of her as a sports caster.
We watched a lot of movies this weekend [I Now Pronouce You Chuck and Larry, 27 Dresses (not by choice), Beowulf (love the story, but feel mixed about the move version), and Juno (didn’t live up to the hype)].Â But here’s a bit of irony.Â Right after we watched Juno the first thing we saw on TV was the news that Palin’s 17 year old daughter is pregnant.
Speaking of Palin and Juno:
It’s all a little too weird that Palin is governor of Alaska and the title character of that teen-age pregnancy movie is Juno.
I now Mccain’s camp said he knew of this before he picked his running mate but I’m not buying it.Â I have a feeling Palin found out after she was picked, why else would she want to submit her daughter to so much attention?
The Palin daughter news made me think of Obama’s stance of focusing on the number of unwanted pregnancies.
She sure does have a lot on her plate – running for VP, newborn with down syndrome, son about to be deployed to Iraq, and now her daughter is preggers.
Hopefully Tina Fey will make a guest appearance on SNL and do a Palin impersonation.
I remember when our local news use to attend the conventions, but I guess they no longer do so due to budget cuts and all the exposure on other cable channels.
Fans of Aggie football must not be too happy with their new coach’s first game losing at home to a “nobody university.”
What’s up with Michigan losing two straight season openers?Â As i said before, Baylor should schedule them on opening day for a guaranteed win.
It’s great being able to chill at home with my little fur children.
I haven’t been getting much sleep with the Olympics and then the political conventions, not to mention the Daily Show’s coverage.
I remember when our NBC affiliate use to show the opening of the MDA Telethon.Â I use to watch the opening every year because I always wondered it it would be Jerry’s last.Â The channel guide tells me that our NBC affiliate only starts to broadcast it at 5:00 AM, and it no longer runs all day.
I’ve tried researching this, but I always wondered why did Jerry Lewis champion this cause.
I’m watching an episode of Dirty Jobs and all of a sudden a very uncomfortable tampon commercial comes on.Â I thought that show appealed to guys and would have thought that advertisers would have tried to appeal to that particular target market.
I made mention a while back that someone was cyber-squatting on TonyRomo.com, and because of that post I get a lot of traffic from time to time.Â But I just found out that Tony has his own website and lot of it is under construction: http://tonyromo9.com/
