Pfff. I just looked in my spam filter. One of them had the subject "Be the arousal generator".

I was considering getting up early and going to the gym before work, since it closes at 3 today, but I decided against it at 5:07am.

I ended up getting up later than usual. The sleep was good.

New Year's party tonight. Not staying too late. We're an old married couple. And, please, no drama.

I'll run around (by that I mean sprint) or something tonight when I get home. It's not the same as picking up heavy things, but it's something. Probably too icy to sprint. There's always the medicine ball and parallettes.

I've been bored, so I've been vaguely following the recent stuff that's happened to Greg Everett, the guy who wrote the book on Olympic weightlifting that I use. He apparently used to be somehow affiliated with "Crossfit" and they recently kicked him out, to his benefit, because they are douches. Anyway, this led me to finding a bunch of rather hilarious mockeries of "Crossfitters", who tend to be self-aggrandizing douches who work out shirtless and wear board shorts (the video doesn't make sense, really, unless you know anything about "Crossfit" and its often ludicrously self-important followers (barooo doesn't fit the description)). Seriously, though, who cares? It's all nonsense. I don't have the second edition of his book, but I should.

I used to be married to a joke account called "The Sea" on facebook. I no longer am so for obvious reasons and recently allowed a friend to marry it. I should probably change the e-mail address out to one of his so he can control the account. I made the account last year at about this time. Ah, good memories.

I am almost done with Emma.

We finally looked at wedding photos last night. Good stuff. My hair is almost always mussed, however. I knew I should have used some product or something. And the photographers wanted us to get all kissy and shit. Dammit, our kids will see these things. Fortunately, the wedding day is the only day one ever seems to be required to do anything like that.

I've never heard of Crossfit before by lm (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Dec 31, 2009 at 03:00:45 PM EST
The Wiki page makes them sound like rabid Evangelical Fundamentalists take up the mantle of physical fitness. Well, if you read between the lines it does. It's also pretty obvious which sentences in the Wiki article were written by devotees.

And as for pictures and requirements and the wedding day being the only day, obviously you do not yet have children.

Kindness is an act of rebellion.

...i was referring to being all kissy and shit in public.

and, yes. they're pretty self-important. to be fair, they've probably done more to popularize olympic lifting than anything else in the last 30 years, probably, besides the fact that power cleans are popular for football players and there are a lot of football players and olympic lifts are popular with field athletes, and there are quite a few of those.

I know people who do crossfit. Actually, it strikes me as more of a multi-level-marketing/scientlogy type of thing.

it's kind of amusing in some ways to watch on the internet.
