If you don't get up...

Self: If you don't get up...

Me: If I don't get up what?

Self: Lemme just draw a picture for you...


It's sad how I can sit down to "just check my email for a sec" and it's 2 hours later.

I can hear my stupid inner voice saying... come...come to the great Jabba....

As guest writer DeeDee (Wes's wife) says as a guest writer on Wes' blog: I just want to go to a 24 hour McDonald's and buy some french fries and poke Jabba's eye out. Well, she was talking about something else but you get the picture... no, not THAT picture up there.... **sigh**

I will ride after work tomorrow and I will ride hard and long. I will not think about cheesecake while I am riding. I will picture Paris Hilton saying, "You know for an old dude you are hot!" Then I will picture Sandra Bullock (oh so fine!) telling me if I would drop some more of that tire around my waist I would be hotter. Then I will feel Terri (my wife) pop me in the back of the head and tell me to snap out of it!

By the way I meant to tell y'all... I almost dropped my CI in a bucket of paint Saturday. Towards the end of the day I was really tired and sweaty and I reached down to drip the paintbrush and the ci started sliding off my ear. I would have hated to use my 1 time replacement because of something dumb like that!

Meant to tell y'all too I was asked to be on the board of Hands and Voices! It's a very good group that does a lot for kids and family dealing with deaf or hard of hearing. The questions were pretty thought provoking such as something like, "If a deaf person who could have a CI decided against it and chose to remain deaf, would I oppose?" Why would I oppose? In my book everyone has a right to live with whatever and however. I'm not the hearing police nor do I plan on being one. I know several deaf people and they are wonderful folks living their lives to the fullest just like anyone else. Everyone does things differently. For me, the CI was the best choice, and for others it may not be.... and that's OK. Being deaf or hard of hearing is not a good excuse for not doing and being what you want to be. By the way there will be a Hands and Voices Summit in Little Rock in Sept. I think it's the 14 and 15th. More on this later. www.handsandvoices.org

Life is good...even when being called a Jabba HA!

I had to laugh...I'm bad about sitting down just for a minute and getting up an hour or two later. I'm not nearly as active as you are, though...I definitely have to watch what I eat to keep from attaining "Hutt-esque" proportions! :)

Don't be picking up any bad habits from "The Bug" :-)

Okay! I don't care who ya are. That's funny! My sense of humor is on vacation without me, so these days when something makes me laugh out loud it's just plain funny.
