Strictly for my peeps

Alright, well time to check in with y'all. Feeling really good today. Went into the office for the day and got to hang out with some of my co-workers that I don't get to see nearly often enough. For those of you who don't know I am blessed in that I am a full time telecommuter. I got my annual performance review and I was very pleased with it. We're also doing a biggest loser type of competition at the office so I got to go work out over lunch with a couple of my co-workers and I surprised myself with how well I did running the mile on the treadmill and the elliptical and I totally sucked at crunches, push-ups and dips. But those things will all be better the next time we do them I can promise you that. Weight Watchers has been going well, at last weigh in I had lost 19.5 lbs. I skipped last weeks weigh in cause I just couldn't focus so I've re-doubled my efforts and am feeling much more confident about this week.

Buster and I went to see V for Vendetta the other night and as a movie it's good. It had the typical "The US war on terror and conservative values are to blame for the worlds ills" subplot, but if you can get past that it actually is a decent story with good acting. It is a bit violent so parents you have been warned.

So my church's youth group is going to the Philadelphia Acquire the Fire Battle Cry event in May. Yes this is the same event that was held in San Francisco and condemned as being "fascist" by the the city leadership. Their reasoning went something like 'We're condemning this because we're tolerant.' Yeah, I bet they didn't condemn, the extra tax revenue, profits, etc. that 25,000 teenagers brought to the city over that weekend. It's amazing how bigoted and intolerant those on the politically correct side of the aisle can be when it comes to Christians.

Muffin and I are gonna check out Ice Age 2: The Meltdown tonight and I am so looking forward to it. I'm in the mood to laugh and Skrat always makes me chuckle

Only Dwayne would be able to say; "Went into the office for the day and got hang out with some of my co-workers that I don't get to see nearly often enough."

WHAT!!!

How far from this planet have you sailed? I'm sure I can speak for the rest of you in disgust at this affection for your job and co-workers. I guess your evaluation with your boss was a more of a discussion of the latest Oprah book. Just to let you know the rest of us get "sign here and get back to work".

Amen Peter, reading that almost made me vomit and I almost quit reading. Of course I guess we'd all get a decent evaluation if we sucked butt like that.

And Bro., even illiterate me can see all the grammatical errors you've been making lately!

Will you please pray for your nephew, he's not the little fish in the big pond anymore and he's struggling!! Especially with his attitude and temper, you know the one he gets from his uncle!!! All prayers will be appreciated.

We loved House. Did you see they were making it a movie? Way cool.
