I gave blood today. My 16th pint. My blood pressure was 104/62. I got my swag - a Super Buddy Blood Drop beanie type plush toy.

I discovered that my driver license expired. I rarely get carded so I don't look at it very often. I know who I am so I do not need to consult my license to verify my identity and a frightening number of local retailers do not feel the need to verify my identity either. The Red Cross needed the photo i.d. to make sure that I am older than 17 and that I was going to donate my own blood.

I was able to renew my license online. God bless the state of Texas for that innovation. Now I have to wait 15 - 20 days for the thing to get to my house. It will have the same bad photo of me. My weight is not listed on the license but I did give that information to the DPS. That information is out of date - I wrote 195 pounds when I got the license renewed 5 years ago. When I renew in 2011 I'll have to actually visit a DPS office to update my picture. After 11 years my appearance should change. I'm carrying the receipt with me in case I get pulled over by the police.

This week I ran 14.69 miles, burned 1,954.2 calories and weigh 160.5 pounds.

This year so far I have ran 112.96 miles and burned 14,446.1 calories. That is 8 weeks of just running miles. If I added other activities to my milage using the Walk Across Texas guidelines I would be making a major contribution to my team's efforts. That is if I can convince them to join Walk Across Texas.

My desire for more people to read this crap has caused me to sign up for Blog Explosion. Check out the little button on the right hand side. Soon I'll be boring thousands of people to tears instead of hundreds. Who am I kidding? It is more like tens of people.

You have to remember 1st grade math to get that last joke. I was taught the "new" math in first grade. Ones place, tens place, hundreds place, thousands place and so on. We never got beyond the thousands place. I think the school just gave up on explaining all that and starting just teaching us arithmetic. This was back in the dark ages - you know - the 1970's. Dinosaurs and bell bottoms ruled the earth. The Dallas Cowboys were America's Team.

As Tom Lehrer explained new math - the objective is not to get the right answer but to know what you are doing. The process was more important than the results. After some years the education establishment realized that was stupid.

I don't miss the 1970's. I like laughing at it but I don't miss it. The 1980's were not funny - just loud. The 1990's - I like to laugh with that decade.

I don't love any of those decades like VH-1. VH-1's love is the unnatural love that Christian Fundamentalists see in every cartoon and PBS children's program. By contrast, my love for those decades is like the deep, brotherly, completely non-sexual despite references to becoming one flesh love of David and Jonathan (guys from the Old Testament/ Torah).

I like to follow the stream of consciousness and see where it takes me.

I really worked my legs in the gym. One of my butt cheeks is so sore that I cannot sit. Walter gave it a good massage. Salvador used his little bird feet on my back and shoulders. He also did a bit of teeth cleaning.

I'll be doing a different strength workout next week. I change those types of workouts every 10 weeks.

I'm going to attempt to convince members of my Star Trek club to participate in Walk Across Texas. It is not a literal walk, it is a way to log miles during an 8-week period. Teams of eight people keep a log of their milage. The goal is to make the miles equal the length of the state of Texas. 830 miles Louisiana border to New Mexico border. 1335.8 kilometers for those into metrics. The whole point of the program is to get people moving. There is even milage equivalents for other physical activities. The general rule is 15 minutes of continious physical activity that make you breathe a bit harder and sweat equals 1 mile.

Someday I might try that distance by myself in 8 weeks. I have exceeded that distance in a year.

I talked to Walter about AdWords. He is supportive and I might be able to launch in a month. I will send him the details. He still has a headache. I hope it goes away tomorrow.

I received some interesting feedback about my Betty Crocker Recipe Cards. The writer thought some of the captions were hilarious and others were lame and suggested that the person who wrote the funny stuff should go back and rewrite the lame captions.

I don't know why "I'm every woman" is playing in my head right now. I'm every woman, it's all in me.

I have my on and off days. Sometimes the funny happens easily. Other times I really have to work at it. The results of really working at it are often less than stellar. Maybe I should go back when the Betty Crocker project is done and rewrite. I might catch myself on a good day.

The blog next door: It is written in German.

Our minister was a guest speaker at another church's service. It was a special service celebrating black history month and introducing potential scholarship recipients. Our choir sang some songs and several members tagged along to watch. Shiloh Baptist (the host church) gives scholarships to its youth members that meet certain criteria. The program listed past recipients and potential recipients up to the year 2016.

I was impressed by the passion and sense of mission of Shiloh Baptist. They started out giving $250 scholarships but because of their passion and faith the amount is now $1,000 and the people of that church fervently believe that through God they will be able to pay for all of the higher education of their youth. I believe they will.

Our church was thanked for being the first church to donate money to the local African-American History museum. One of our members was recognized for their generous donation.

Our church is devoting a bit of its budget to outreach; helping other organizations. It is part of the river of blessings. We help others prosper, we will prosper. That is tenet in most religions.

The choir sang well and we were invited to dinner at Shiloh. The dinner was great. The best meatloaf I've ever had.

Our minister's sermon was well received. I enjoyed the whole program. I covet Shiloh's sense of mission and passion for my church.

My dad sent me, "Duh, the Stupid History of the Human Race." I went to Toys R Us and bought the Mega Blocks U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D. I need to clear a space for it after I put it together. Otherwise, Salvador will dismantle it.

I'm up a bit late because I watched the entire second half of the Westminster Dog Show. The German Shorthaired Pointer won Best in Show. She was quite a performer. I liked the Bloodhound and Great Pyranees. I'm partial to big lovable dogs. I like medium fluffy dogs too. I like dogs.

I'm glad none of the poodles made it to the Best in Show round. I really dislike the ridiculous haircuts. Real life poodles are not groomed like that and the bit about keeping the joints warm is utter crap. The announcer should say, "We've always groom poodles for the show ring in this ridiculous manner and we don't know why. Perhaps it is because we really hate poodles."

I think the show poodles are the non-telepathic version. Real life poodles have some kind of mind control power over their humans. That is why they are never groomed in a ridiculous fashion.

Today's blog next door: Drunken Wench Ramblings

This week I ran 13.92 miles, burned 1,924 calories and weigh 160 pounds.

I need to bring a water bottle on my Saturday runs.

A squirrel discovered the sunflower seeds in the bird feeder. The finches found the unopened bag of seed and poked a couple of little holes on the side.

Salvador has taken a liking to climbing into cabinets and hiding and chewing on things. I just took him out of the software cabinet. He was hiding behind some CDs and chewing on paper. He is not good at hiding because he chirps and puts his head up occasionally. He will run at you if you try to remove him from one of his hiding places. He actually attacks Walter and goes for the face. He drew blood a couple of days ago. He just runs at me and bites my finger but he will get on.

Salvador is now perching on top of a door.

I'm going to get something to drink.

Yesterday I walked 11,905 steps/ 8.92 kilometers.

I did not feel like doing the order of service last night. This Sunday is a guest speaker and that is a bit of logistical juggling.

(Comments about resignations removed. I got it off my chest.)

Anyway I was tempted to resign last night but that was a joke and I just got caught in the resignation fever. Actually, one of these resignations affect me directly.

The whole thing is a bit demoralizing since this is not what church is about. I'm tempted to backspace over everything now that I got it off my chest. (See paranthesis above) Some would deem publishing my opinions about church matters on a public blog inappropriate. Especially, since it is easy to surmise which church based on my profile. Have to keep up appearences. God forbid anyone know of the existence of a church, with imperfect perfect people with a variety of views that sometimes conflicts, as members. A church full of humans. A church full of diverse imperfect humans that somehow manage to worship and work together despite the occasional conflict. Don't want that getting out to the public.

I actually love my church with all its glorious imperfections because the members accept me with all my glorious imperfections. Despite my introverted nature, I still need to have some connections outside of myself. I like a church that challenges me to improve myself and the world without the hammer of guilt or threat of eternal damnation if I don't. Improvement because it is simply the right thing to do and what a healthy person is designed to do.

When in doubt - black it out. This entry may not make much sense with some of the self-censorship but I do this for me. If others may take whatever they find useful in my ramblings.

Come to my church on Sunday. Service starts at 10:30am

Walter opened and closed the pawn shop today. I gave him a foot rub.

I wrote scripts for three episodes of my multi-panel comic. I even came up with a super hero name for my main character. Finding a proper super hero name has been an ongoing story for about 3 episodes. That arc will continue for another 3 episodes. I still have to tie up the loose end regarding my main character's divorce.

The next few weeks may get really busy at work. I'm glad I took advantage of the lull to write. I have 4 weeks worth of single panel gags and 3 weeks worth of multi-panel stories to draw.

I have a back log of comics. The most time consuming part of creating the comics is scanning, coloring and lettering.

My gags have been lame lately. I've been coming up with them on the fly. It was a bit slow at work so I spent some time actually writing. I came up with 21 viable gags. Most of them are what I call panel gags - gags that break the walls of the square shaped single panel. If things are slow tomorrow, I will spend some time writing some scripts for my multi-panel comic. I have a loose end that needs tying. Maybe I should call a loose end tying service.

My cold has progressed. It is now dominated by a cough with bouts of stuffiness. At least I'm not having to blow my nose every 10 minutes. I get to enjoy cough drops. The current flavor is cherry euycalyptus. I can smell strong odors.

I'm printing some brochures for the church canvas. I'm using the fast draft setting and the new ink cartridge that my brother gave me for Christmas. Everything is shaking because of the printer. The printer was also a gift from my brother. I have a great brother.

Church was fun. We did a Mardi Gras strut complete with a saxaphone player. Getting Unitarian-Universalists to move around is quite a feat. We are the stiff white people that black comedians make jokes about.

I've become a bit of a fan of Celebrity Fit Club and The Surreal Life. I don't make time to watch those shows but if they happen to be on while I'm channel surfing then I'll stop. I like this season of The Surreal Life. Christopher Knight is a very well-built man. It is not necessary to add the qualifier, "for his age." He has a great body. Peter Brady turns out to be a stud muffin. Amazing. I'm also digging the interaction between the model chick and Jane Weidlan. Throw in the former lady wrestler and this could be one show too hot for TV.

Celebrity Fit Club is a bit frustrating. The contest is based on the single dimension of weight on the scale. These people get frustrated when the scale does not reflect the changes in their bodies. The judges try to encourage them by telling them about the gains in muscle, the changes in the way their clothes fit and all the other visible signs but the contest is based upon weight lost. I hope after the contest that the celebrities will stick with the lifestyle changes and be able to look at the positive physical changes outside of scale weight.

VH-1 has celebrity reality shows because music videos are not mindless enough. These days it does not take much to make it to celebrity status or at least VH-1 celebrity status. Andy Warhol was a true prophet.

Despite my condition, this week I ran 13.88 miles, burned 1,774.4 calories and weigh 161.6 pounds.

Walter asked how someone trying to recover from a cold can run for an hour. I told him it was mental - all mental.

Lunch with my mother-in-law went well, unfortunately I wasn't up to shopping so I was taken home to take a nap while Walter and his mom hit the thrift stores. The nap helped and gave me the strength to prepare the order of service and go to the gym. Walter went with me. He did not run for an hour.

I'm glad Walter joined the gym.

I'm going to take some more medicine and eat some left overs.

Yesterday I walked 8,046 steps/ 6.03 kilometers.

I went to a celebration dinner at a restaurant noted for its huge servings of meat. I had a New York strip. It was good and I did not feel overstuffed. I could not hear any conversation. The restaurant was loud, my ears were stopped up and I ended up on the end of the table with all the kids.

My nose is stopped up and I am coughing. Damn, how much snot can my sinuses hold? My ears have popped a couple of times. Other than that I feel okay. I hope I'm over this by Monday.

It looks like Ossie Davis has completed the celebrity death triangle.

I'm going to take some drugs to alleviate some of these symptoms.

My mother-in-law is taking us out to lunch today. It would be good to be in some kind of happier haze. Maybe she has an amusing folk remedy. Sticking a hot spike up my nose seems rather appealing right now.

I know there are people much sicker and I should quit my bitching.

Walter's boss took the employees and spouses out to dinner tonight. It was pretty good. I was still in too much of a haze to appreciate the food. I don't have much of an appetite when I'm not well.

I'm taking tomorrow off. I have over 300 hours of sick leave. I'm going to use some of it to insure that I'm completely well. My work is not that terribly important.

Enterprise is being cancelled and I don't really care. I could lose my nerd certification for saying that but I live in a market that does not have UPN. From what I have heard about other UPN shows I should consider that a blessing. Anyway, the cancellation is causing a lot of chatter.
