My Diet and Exercise Must Be Showing...

I asked one of the employees at the gym to measure me, since I have been on a pretty strict diet for two weeks now. I wanted to see if anything had changed noticeably in that time. When she was done she asked me, "Are you trying to gain or lose?"
Yay! I think. As long as she didn't think I was scrawny. Hmm... I'll stop overthinking it and take it as a positive thing.

The Hidden Dangers of Fat Burners

No, I'm not talking about heart palpitations, dizziness, nausea, and insomnia. I'm talking about ambition and euphoria. For instance, about a month ago I was going to pick up around my room. My room is a hot mess, since my daughters like to stay up all night and get into things. Anyway, I began by picking up toys and throwing away junk we don't need. About three hours later I am painting my walls with an oil-based primer. (by the way, if you've never used an oil based primer I don't suggest it unless you absolutely must; that stuff does not come off of clothes or flesh! I had white flecks of paint on my forearms for about a week even after I scrubbed them with mineral spirits...)
Of course, the fun must end, and the energy runs out. You don't get those awe-inspiring bursts of energy with every dose. My room is still in a state of disrepair. My walls are a nice shade of Azure Afternoon though...

Bump it! and Progressive's Flo

Am I the only one suspecting that Flo is wearing a Bump it?

Here's Flo:

Here are some ladies sporting the Bump it:

Potato sacks with sequins

I like So You Think You Can Dance, and I think that Cat Deeley is a very attractive woman. What I don't understand is why they insist on putting her in dresses that look like potato sacks with sequins on them? Every now and again they have her wear something that flatters her (maybe-a-little-too) thin figure though... Just a thought.

I have an infected tonsil, which led me to search online about them. I've had what some call "tonsil stones" for years, but they are worse now that the left tonsil is infected.
There are some really disturbing videos online of people having tonsil stones removed. I've been able to pop mine out for years now, though I don't really think that it is probably good to do so. If I know there is one there I just get the urge to get rid of it.
Blech! If you like gross videos just do a google search for tonsil stone removal. :(

Freddie Mercury Impersonator

I have been on a big surge of listening to Queen again lately (thanks to Buzzardbilly's getting in touch with your inner Freddie Mercury blogs), and I found a video of a Freddie impersonator. At times this guy songs just like Freddie. His range isn't as good, and he certainly isn't as good looking, but still it's craziness.

For anyone who doesn't know me, Freddie Mercury was my first love and obsession (probably why I've always had relationship problems; you just don't pair love and obsession in a healthy one...). :)

Here are two videos, one of Queen singing Somebody to Love live, then Gary Mullen and the Works singing it live. It's really funny to listen to this guy talk, because he has a really think accent that you wouldn't guess by listening to him sing.

Of course, keep in mind that Freddie is doing his slightly different version of the song as he does when live, and Gary is doing one of Freddie's live audience improv/imitation pieces at the beginning.

Weight loss

I'm back on a wonderfully dull high protein, low everything else diet. My body feels so weak and tired as it is adjusting to the lower carbohydrate level. I can't wait for this adjustment period to be over.
However, when I am done it will be worth it (come on, don't interrupt! I have to make myself believe this!).
Here are some pics of crazy-buff chicks that I would like to get as buff as:
