Funny stuff

I mentioned at some point in my diaries several years ago. I haven't rectified the situation. I mean, the man won a Nobel prize. Lord of the Flies was pretty good, but not Nobel-worthy, so surely the rest of the his oeuvre merits some attention.

I never remember this, however, when I'm picking out books to read.

The rumours are true: it seems I'm getting married. And soon. In four months. I have to get this stuff wrapped up.

The bastards at the gym. They closed off all the lifting platforms for remodelling. I knew I should've read into the implications of the note in the newsletter that they were getting a couple new ones. I should ask how long until they are open again. The answer had better not be the end of summer. The answer had better be within a week. Otherwise I will get weak and die. It was so pathetic, coming in from the rain, seeing the platforms roped off, and having no idea what to do. I mean, I guess there were benches and pullup bars. Otherwise, it's all a bunch of foreign machines I have no knowledge of using, nor any desire to do so. Levers and weird shit. No way I'm touching that. So I went home, played with a medicine ball a little bit. Then met with the photographer.

It's wet outside. It's been raining so long. I forgot to close my window again. The rain isn't a problem, it's only open a couple inches, but they're tuckpointing today...

I put my trousers on two legs at a time. I use a two-legged jumping-in system. It's wild. So whenever anybody uses the phrase, "He puts his trousers on one leg at a time..." about anybody, I interject and point out that I, for one, do not. It makes me awesome.

You know what I don't like? Cads.

Also, there's a story about the Apollo program, when on their way to the moon one of the astronauts woke up for his shift, flipped his pants out in front of him (they were weightless) and did the 2-legs-at-once thing. He laughed. The other two guys wanted to know what he was laughing about.

"We really are different," he said. "We put our pants on both legs at once!"

That is both happy and sad. by gzt (2.00 / 0) #2 Wed Jun 17, 2009 at 12:38:00 PM EST
On the one hand, happy that I am awesome in a way that typically only astronauts are. Sad in that it only brings to mind that I have given up my dream of being an astronaut. Alas...
