NEWS FLASH! I've Been Told to Loose Weight AGAIN!

Ah, it's been a great week for my self-esteem and body image. I got the results from my annual blood work this week. Actually, everything (except two tests) were within normal ranges...I know, I know..."normal" is not a word usually associated with me. Anyway, my triglycerides were elevated. Who knew the "HOT NOW" sign at Krispy Kreme was so toxic!?

So I've decided to find another place to hang shirts other than my exercise least that's a step in the right direction. I also bought a Wii Fit. Now, I can take a doctor letting me have it for being overweight, but the Wii Fit....well, it's downright cruel. Before you can do anything with it, you have to let it ask you questions and then it has to weigh you to come up with a body mass index (BMI) and then it shows you a screen like this...

Mine looked a little like this, except the little character swelled up before my eyes as the little blue arrow moved up, up, up until it stopped in the OBESE range!!!! Ouch! Coudn't they have labeld it, "really, really" overweight? I'm sure that the Wii Fit will give me all the exercise I need to get slim and trim in no time. Then again....well, you on this commercial it a"quasi" commercial. Actually, it's not like a real commercial at all, because unlike most commercials, this one has way too much truth in it! Click and be prepared NOT to run out and get yourself a Wii Fit! (If you do, make sure you have a strong sense of self-worth BEFORE you step on's merciless!)

Three Weeks is Long Enough

I'm breaking my three week BLOG BLOCK or BLOG BURNOUT or whatever it was that kept me from writing. As usual, I've been in the road a lot being a country parson. My church allowed me to do something cool (though a bit blurry for the first few seconds as my camera tried to focus!) yesterday to give my brother a birthday surprise that I doubt he's ever received from anyone on the video to find out...
