Celebrity Status (6045-6085)

I just said goodbye to my dad and step mom. While we had a nice visit, I can’t say there was any heavy drinking. Let’s just leave it at I had a taco that didn’t agree with me. Party over.

My fam.

However, I did impress the hell out of them when we were at dinner and a reader recognized me (HI DELIN!) and came over to say hello. It totally made my day and inflated me to celebrity status as far as my folks are concerned.

Dad: This must happen all the time.

Me: Oh yes, totally. Maybe sometimes. Not really. Okay, never.

I took the day off of getting rid of crap because I’ve been trashing stuff like nobody’s business and needed a little break. I must say that it took a little psyching up to get back down in the basement today. It speaks volumes towards the importance of consistency. If you want to make something a habit, truly a part of you, opting out can’t really be an option.

Today I grabbed a bag of stuff under Lonny’s downstairs desk and hit a treasure trove of junk. Check it out.

Here’s the video of Testiclese working the ‘chucks. He is clearly his father’s son.

Also of note, I saw this ad campaign in Volcom’s window on the mall. It deeply saddened me that this is somehow a covetable image of beauty and desirability.

Slack-jawed, vapid, dead-eyed youth with no visible brain activity. I can’t believe this sells anything. Please don’t let my boys think that this is what a pretty girl looks like. I mean, she is pretty and the model might be a genius working her way through med school, but still.

Oh, and I’m also extremely excited that I just picked up my 400th follower today!  It doesn’t mean I actually have 400 people subscribed to my blog, WP will count the same person multiple times if they sign up for emails, and if they have a Twitter and Facebook follow, so I actually have a good deal less than 400. But given that I started with zero followers and was stuck at 12 for months, this gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling.

Thank you for following and for reading and for taking an interest in my life and all the shit in my basement.

  1. I should have asked for your autograph…that would have really impressed them 😉 We just got home and I was thinking about not working out…then you had to go and bring up consistency…guess I’ll drag my butt down there. Great to see you…what were the chances??

  2. ROFL at the video. Man… I just realized I’ve been catching up on your blog ALL DAY! I should really do something else.
