Move Your Ass

So I was innocently checking RandomBen's site, when I noticed a new link at the top left corner of the page to Technorati. I clicked it and learned that my site claims the top two links to Ben's site. As it should be!

But then I got curious and looked up which blogs link to my own site. Strangely enough, Advertising Week's blog randomly links to my image of the Pillsbury Doughboy (check the September 27th entry, "Was this Advertising Week's first protest?"). I'm not sure how they found it, because a Google Image search for "Pillsbury Doughboy" doesn't bring up my site in any of the first 4-5 pages of results.

Other people have linked to some of my mp3s (like "The Rainbow Connection"), and many, many people are stealing bandwidth by displaying photos I have on my site (BAD, PEOPLE! VERY BAD!).

In other not-so-exciting news, yesterday I joined the local YMCA. I was inspired by Roo and figured, why the hell not? Maybe slapping down the cash will inspire me to actually get off my ass and do something. The place is just a year old and they have all the fancy equipment (including my beloved elliptical trainer). Now I just need to convince myself that actually stepping out of my apartment at 5:30 a.m. is a good thing.

In a secondary effort to jumpstart Operation: Move Your Ass, I just ordered a JetAudio iAudio U2 mp3 player and some inexpensive (but positively reviewed) Sony earbuds. With free shipping, $5 off promotion, and a $20 Amazon gift certificate, I got both things for around $85. I am pleased.

I'm going to be working on my Grand Canyon roadtrip entry this afternoon, I swear.

Advertising Week's blog randomly links to my image of the Pillsbury Doughboy (check the September 27th entry, "Was this Advertising Week's first protest?").

I've always wondered if maybe it wasn't a link I followed that led me to your blog J. It would be something like this, I'm sure. Although, you had another that was really moving, which is what I think motivated me to comment (I'm usually shy on blogs).

Anyway, along the lines of a trainer. Is he/she good? I mean really good/a decent trainer/in tune with your goals about what you want to accomplish. I've spent enough time of my life under physical trainers that you neeed to know your specific goals, and to not let them push you too much in the wrong direction.

Oh, and I'll answer that question about realtionships later; I've been too busy at home (grrrrrrrrr) amd at work (double grrrrrrrr) to give it much thought.

Arrrrrgh! (wish it was Talk Like A Pirate Day!)
