I started working out on my heavy bag tonight. Something tells me I need to invest in the more expensive padded gloves. The neoprene ones I was wearing are a tad thin I think.

If you think my hand looks beat up, you should see the bag.

Well, not really. The bag is fine. As a matter of fact, round one goes to The Bag. Just wait till tomorrow.

A Sappy Post

I really thought about exercising today. But I went to a sugarhouse instead. This particular one is on the Mohawk Trail in Shelburne, MA.

Here is the part of the house where they boil down the sap to make the maple syrup. It takes something like 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup.

They didn't serve salad there so in order to make sure I got a serving of vegetables, I had a couple of corn fritters. It's important to eat right. On the side is a bowl of pickles. They are supposed to help counter the sweet taste of the syrup. I didn't feel that was necessary.

I ordered three blueberry pancakes with sausage. Summer is coming you know, and my ass has just not grown big enough from sitting around all winter drinking Sam Adams. This breakfast should fix that.

After eating, I went out to Dick's sporting goods store and bought a heavy bag (the kind you punch). I'm going to try boxing in my basement. I'm hoping to like it enough to stay motivated to work out. On a side note, someone told me recently that they see more lesbians in Dick's than they do in Home Depot. Then the thought ran through my head that lesbians must love Dicks. It didn't sound right. I'm done thinking for today. I need to go hang up my bag and punch away my pancakes.

Happy St. Patrick's Day From The Girlz

Cierra: Should I bite her in the ass or do you want to?

Coco: I only have five teeth left. It may make a bigger impression if you do it.

Cierra: Ok, you distract her by peeing on the rug. When she bends over to clean it, I'll get her.

Coco: Will she ever stop thinking this is funny?

Cierra: I doubt it. She's warped. Ever read her blog?

Coco: I used to, but it kind of sucks.

Cierra: Yeah, that post yesterday about the tea was so lame. Borrrring. Wonder what she'll write about today. Probably some stupid joke like what's green and Irish and sits in your backyard on St. Patrick's Day? Paddy O'Furniture.

Coco: That's just stupid.

Coffee? Tea? Have to Pee?

White Ayurvedic Chai. I can't spell it, I can't pronounce, and I can't hold it till morning if I have a cup before bed. It's sort of like beer - you don't buy it, you just rent it. But it sure tastes good.

Tell Me Something I Don't Know

Nightly News Anchors, you are pissing me off. We all know things are not good. And yet, I find it simply amazing that every single night you come into our homes, doing exactly the opposite of what you should.

Your typical broadcast starts with the same line every night: Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse......

You tell us how much the market has dropped then share the latest unemployment numbers (which are always staggering). About 20 minutes in, we're teased by the promise of a upcoming heartwarming story . Then comes the lead in - In this horrible economy, Americans are stepping up to help their neighbors even though the economy is rotten and no one has any money and did I mention that the economy sucks and CitiGMFordBankOfAmerica let go 20 million workers today and home values have plummeted and your sister's ass needs a bailout and more Americans are turning to crack. 

Just what I wanted to hear.  Maybe, just maybe, if you injected even a glimmer of hope about the economy into your broadcast, folks would start to spend a bit. But then again, if things turned around, what would you talk about?

Holes In My Head

There's nothing I like to do more than spend a relaxing afternoon with friends, eating, drinking, and getting pierced. And no better place to do all of the above than Northampton, Mass.

Miss H came in the room with me and shot these photos. I had my ears originally pierced years ago, but they were constantly getting infected every time I wore earrings and so I just stopped. This time I did it right and went to a professional piercer. I had my first two holes re-pierced in October and everything has been great since. I went back yesterday to finish the job. Really, I can't emphasize enough how much better it is to go the professional route and skip the piercing gun at the mall. You can hardly feel the needle and it's over in about a second. 

This of course, led to the drinking topic of what you should and should not pierce. I'm thinking I may go for a couple of more holes in the ears, but I wouldn't do anywhere else on my face. Going lower of course, is always an option. I actually think piercings between the neck and the lower abdomen look quite nice. Any lower than that just sort of makes me feel a bit queasy, mostly because I would think the healing process might be a bit uncomfortable. 

Ok, who has holes where?
