I'm listening to Depeche Mode while chatting on IRC, looking forward to upcoming LARP events and a Magic tournament. When did it become 1995?

I thought that there was no opponent in dance games deadlier than an eleven-year-old girl... and I was wrong. The deadliest opponent is an eleven-year-old girl WITH FORMAL DANCE TRAINING.

From misspotsitt's journal:

1. Go to your "Journal" menu, and select "Journal Style"
2. To the right, you'll see what theme you're using, with a link stating "Customize Your Theme". Click that link.
3. Scroll down a little ways, and you'll see that on the left side of your screen, you have multiple options to modify your theme. Click on the "Custom CSS" link, and it should load the options for doing Custom CSS.
4. From here, all you have to do is go to the "Custom Stylesheet", and put in the text

/* ---FB-Twitter Comment Ticky Fix--- */
.b-repost-items, .b-repost-item, .b-repost-item IMG, #entry-form-wrapper .b-repost-item, b-repost-item-fb {

Day 1073 (January 1, 2010)

Resolution #1: the Resolution of Hygiene

I resolve to floss and use the fluoride rinse every night, no matter how tired I am. It's worth it in the long run.

Day 1074 (January 4, 2009)

Resolution #2: the Resolution of Liquor

I resolve to sample no fewer than 52 different liquors this year, and I don't plan on doing it alone.

Day 1075 (January 3, 2009)

Resolution #3: the Resolution of Fitness

I resolve to work out every planned day whether or not I feel like it. Only full-blown illness is an excuse. I will have 52 entries in my 2010 progress tracker when 2010 ends.

Day 1076 (January 4, 2010)

Resolution #4: the Resolution of Photography

I resolve to begin shooting in RAW this year, just as soon as I get it working under linux. No, I'm not changing the OS on my home computer. Linux is free.

Sinestro Corps

Alex finally noticed the rings that I've been getting, so I told him that I hadn't gotten him any because they were way too big for him. One of the friendly and knowledgeable staff of the Phantom of the Attic noticed the exchange and reached back to get Alex a ring. When his hand hovered near the Violet and Blue rings that were this week's promo, I noticed that there were other colors from previous weeks still available.

"Get him a yellow one," I said. "It's a better color for him."

All eyes turned toward Alex, who was smiling innocently.

"Whoa, I'm scared of him!" Jeff, the owner of the store, said. I'd meant that yellow was his favorite color of the spectrum, but I suppose he's capable of generating great fear like Calvin.

I stressed way too much over the party theme, ended up wearing a fallback costume (Black Lantern) that wasn't much a costume (I dress like that all the time) due to costume failure, and still managed to have a good time. Here are photos!

I fell asleep a lot at the party, though.

So, I managed to pull my right quadriceps doing pendulum lunges. Perfect timing considering the beach trip, right? Yeah. It killed the 30 Day Shred for me, too, which is the bigger annoyance.

Fortunately, I remember Mav mentioning something about the Tabata method, which is basically four minutes of high intensity training. You want to get as many muscle groups involved as possible, so squats and the like are the ideal workout, but it seemed like I could do them with dumbbell bent over rows and dumbbell bench presses.

Success! I can remain active while my leg heals!

First day of Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred. The beach is in a little over a month, and I want to kick my metabolism in the ass, get rid of some of this fat I'm carrying.

Oh, sweet mercy. Twenty minutes of workout, and I want to die. If I can keep this up for thirty days, I am truly worthy of the Green.

Guess what I can't lift? If your answer is "300 pounds", you're right!

Things I learned about the barbell squat today:
1) My 1-rep max is somewhere between 200 and 300 pounds.
2) I can control 300 pounds going backwards toward the ground from a crouch.
3) Even controlled, 300 pounds makes a hell of a lot of noise crashing
to the ground.
4) Padding on the floor is a good thing, as is keeping the workout area clear.
5) Ditching that much weight makes for a hell of an adrenaline rush.

The only thing broken was a the five-pound weight in the picture.

After yesterday afternoon's adventure getting home, which involved being stuck on a hill for half an hour before managing to slide a u-turn and go back the way I came, I thought I was prepared for the worst. This morning proved that this was not so.

Leaving the house with plenty of time to brush off the car and drive at a safe and leisurely pace to work, I started the car, shifted into drive... and slid backward three feet. Hmm. Slight tap on gas... backwards more. Shifting into reverse then drive to rock out of it did nothing. Yes, the road had frozen overnight, and I was parked on a sheet of ice. I used the last of the salt on the walk so no one breaks their neck in front of the house, then went back to bed.

Most of the MegaBees out there are me, though there are some surprises. Obviously the one on LiveJournal isn't me, but the ones on MySpace, Yahoo, and YouTube aren't me, either. I find myself wondering who they are....

Happy birthday to the universe, happy birthday to me. Now let's just hope that no one tries to look back at the origins of time and introduces evil into the universe....

My coworkers surprised me with a birthday party... by throwing it two weeks early. Ingenious! Everything in this photo except the glasses was a gift; Alex decided to give me the necklace today for some reason, Annette gave me the t-shirt last year, and a coworker gave me the Steelers ornament this year.

It's like when a large group of friends threw me a surprise birthday party in... I think it was June.

This Saturday, after cartoons, the chosen robots of Alex and Jameel shall meet on the field of battle. Go-Bots, Mini-Cons, Autobots, Decepticons, Predacons, and other sentient transforming machines will battle with no regard for faction until there is a victor.

The only rules I know of so far are:

1) All robots must be real. You can't make up a Transformer and build it out of Lego blocks or anything like that.

2) Mini-Cons are the most powerful robots (Apparently, Alex really likes Mini-Cons).

3) You can only have two robots fighting at a time because you only have two hands.

This is going to rule.

Alex has decided that we're going to have a Robot War, so I need to go through my Transformers and decide which ones are going to fight his Transformers.

I don't think he quite comprehends how many Transformers I actually have.

Anyway, as I understand kid logic, the power of a given robot is determined by two things: the robot's size and the awesomeness of its alternate mode. If I were to show up with, say, the Dinobots, the Predacons, and a couple of sharks, I'd have it wrapped up. However, the boy has Pyramidas, who transforms into a gigantic Egyptian pyramid. As everyone knows, ancient Egyptian things rate pretty high on the awesomeness scale.

I'll probably just go with the Movie toys. They're durable enough to resist a seven-year-old's attacks, there are several military vehicle alternate modes (oh, and a scorpion!), and the Leaders are fairly large.

The nine-year-olds playing football. My nephew, #2, is one of the team captains.

I took over 800 shots of their game against their rivals, West Mifflin, getting just over fifty decent shots. Unlike last week, a few of these shots are cropped.

There was also a fight in the stands when a parent took a swing at one of the coaches. I was so focused on the game that I missed it entirely.

So, I got this DVD in the mail the other day. Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West is the title. Apparently, the Clarion Fund has spent a whole boatload of money sending these DVDs out with newspapers in swing states like Pennsylvania. Or, in some cases, mailing them directly.

They sent me one. Check the name.

Here, it's easier to see on the close-up:

You have GOT to be kidding me. People, this is why you have a human check your mailing lists before you send out your screeds.
