I decided last night, while drinking, to stop drinking until the Tough Mudder is over. I’ve been a slacker ever since I hurt my back. Just eating and drinking and being a slug. The funny part about making decisions when drinking is that 89% of the time, I make the wrong decision. Oh, but that glorious 11%. That sweet, sultry, 11% of the time that I make a decision to change something for the better….ohhhh yeah it’s sexy.
I am the 11%.
The back is better, the attitude is right, the plan is coming together, everything is on it’s way….EXCEPT… I feel super weak tonight, and my throat hurts. I think this is my body saying:
But I shall pass. I’m just going to turn in early tonight and see if that helps me not get sick. If I am sick over the next couple days, at least I can watch some more stand-up.
I’ve been wrapped up in all things stand-up comedy lately (even though the damn snow prevented my merry band of fools to drive over to the open mic night tonight), and I’ve been really caught up on this web series called, “Speakeasy” with Paul F. Tompkins. It’s a very standard interview show but the guests and Paul talk and make each other laugh and it’s 100 times better than Jay Leno.
It’s free on YouTube. Check it out!
I’ve been writing a few minutes of stand-up here and there and I’m excited to try something new for sure. I do pretty well in small groups, I’m not so sure I do really well in front of large audiences. Not drinking is probably not going to be a good idea then either, as far as nerves go, but on the other hand I don’t want to take the stage and

^^Wasn’t that hilarious? I couldn’t find a picture so I just figured I’d be lazy. You don’t mind, right?
I don’t mind lazy writing here and there, but I can’t afford to be actually lazy anymore.
Buffalo Wild Wings and Jimmy Johns…
Most difficult of all:
Mucho Mas Fresh Mexican Grill?
That’s a no.
Instead of drinking a beer after work, I’m going to go to the gym for a bit.
I’m going to crockpot up some deliciousness that I can eat all week.
It’s all so simple! Ok, it’s really not. I’ve tried and failed a LOT.
Here we go again, should be fun!
