-so how about that performance by hines ward on DWTS the other night? huh? not bad, right? that is, if you enjoy your favorite football players half nekked on national tv pretending to be a matador. sheesh. it just doesn't get any easier. and then today i read a story about a group of ravens fans who are organizing themselves to try and vote for everyone but hines. really? are these people really going to make me vote for this stupid show? really?
-maybe they are the ones who planted the messed up hines ward voodoo doll that my sister-in-law "found." when your sister-in-law tells you excitedly that she found you something for your birthday, you assume that she means that she was at a store (where you buy things) and that she saw something nice that reminder her of you, or that she thought you would really like, and she bought it. you don't think that she literally found it on the street, covered in soggy cigarette butts and bird droppings. and even if you do think that, you would have to imagine that the thing she found would be a hundred dollar bill (or at least a 20-spot), or something really nice. but no, that's not what happened. instead, after getting your hopes up about she "found" you, she sends you this, in a regular business envelope, with postage due that you have to pay upon receiving it:
so dance, hines! dance! dance for all that is good in the world! dance for all that is black and yellow! dance for the demise of those who would rip the arm of your likeness, or for the embarrassment of those who would give that fractured likeness to their brother-in-law as a birthday present. i'm looking at you, shay.
-moving on, i am currently listening to the new sleeping at last ep for april. Sleeping At Last is a really cool band that is putting out a three song ep for each month of the year. by the end of the project they will have a 36 song project that encompasses the whole range of the calendar, and let me tell you: it's beautiful. gorgeous music filled with engaging poetic lyrics. i love it. you should check them out.
-i have gotten up at 5am the last three days to workout, and while that is really early, it still isn't too early to laugh each and every time the opening to the dvd says, "if you experience any discomfort while doing this workout, please stop immediately." um....really? isn't that what got me to the point of needing to do a workout in the first place? look, mr. dvd, i'm already uncomfortable just getting out of bed at this hour, not to mention putting on shoes. seriously. i don't need any extra incentive to go back to bed, so please don't talk to me about making sure i'm comfortable. and don't tell me to consult my physician before working out. i thought we'd already talked about this. my physicians all think i'm fat. they want me to work out. stop bringing it up and go ahead and get started with the obligatory exercise cliches so i can get all uncomfortable, thank you very much.
-and now, just for kicks and grins, give me a caption for this:
