My (now-deactivated) eHarmony profile described me as:
No wonder I can't find (or keep) a girlfriend!
This guy gives batshit insanity a bad name!
After a six-week period in which my weight was stuck at 250 pounds, I consulted a trainer at the gym. She advised me to try different machines and to ratchet up the intensity of the machines I had used to date. After two weeks of this, I now weight 245. That's 20 pounds of weight loss since I started working out last October. Hooray for me!
For the first time in longer than I care to recall, I think I'm on the verge of having a girlfriend. So far we've talked on the phone a bunch of times (for up to three hours at a clip) and had a highly successful dinner date. Plus, the last time we chatted, she put her eight-year-old son on the phone. And that seemed to go quite well.
It's still too soon to tell how far this will go, but I've given myself permission to be cautiously optimistic that I may actually have a future with this woman. So stay tuned for further developments!
Tonight, I caught a Family Guy in which Peter and his buddies embark on a quest for the origin of their favorite dirty joke. My jaw dropped when the opening credits read, "Based on a short story by Richard Matheson."
Richard Matheson?! The great science fiction writer, whose credits include I Am Legend, The Night Stalker, and dozens of classic Twilight Zones?
I would love to read the shorty story on which Family Guy based that episode; because I'm guessing that Seth McFarlane took serious liberties with the source material!
