SEX, DUH! If your not out of breath when its over you did not do it right. Being backed up would go a long to explain some of the posters inability to process information with a clear mind.

What will tomorrow bring? I already have so many stupid irrelevant responses for my new best friends to complain about I will never get to sleep.

My in-laws are strict believers in what rockchalker just posted. It really throws my mother-in-law off when I ask what is for dinner. "How the hell am I supposed to know what we are eating for dinner tomorrow?" Lunch to me is dinner to her.

From Hollis: Is that suppertime or dinnertime? With my ol' man it was suppertime. Sometimes we went downtown to eat it. Unless it was uptown. We always argued about which direction that was.

The dinner bell is for farmhands at noontime.

Doing my favorite right now. Cruising the LJW eating a cup of ice cream after work.

We'll be put straight in a Tornado Watch at some point around suppertime.

BoB, is that suppertime or dinnertime? I'm not sure what the difference is. I used to work with this old man who brought a dinner bucket to work for his lunch. He also took an apple break everyday.

Tornado watch just to our west issued at 310p. They'll tack us on later.

so it is all a question of whether the weather will wither whilst whistling from the west when we won't worry whether the weather will whomp us.

Prospector -

No T-storm watches for us. We'll be put straight in a Tornado Watch at some point around suppertime. What's going out in west KS/Neb will be here in about 6 - 10 hours.

Insanity and P90X. Clear out the furniture and work out first thing in the morning at home. With it too hot to run on a regular basis here in Phoenix, I realized last summer I needed something to do indoors. These two dvd programs are just the ticket, particularly Insanity.

Let's face it, we aren't getting any younger and you can't outrun the new, fast zombies if you haven't been doing your cardio exercise. Making sure you can outrun zombies is just old-fashioned common sense.

Wait....I just decided that I will burn more calories by giving up my thing for older men and only dating younger guys now.

Brilliant. And less emotionally complicated.

I feel better already!

So isn't it about time for our afternoon T-storm Watch #516.

Is Gary Lesak's dog pissin' in the studio? Is Katie looking for her helmet?

Bob, weigh in.

Oh yeah, Seger is still alive. I just keep thinking he's Michael McDonald. Michael McDonald, "Yah Mo B There". Now there's a catchy tune.

Is Bob Seger still alive? I've been trying to perfect the Pompie. It's basically a blatant rip-off of the Chuck Berry Duck Walk. Getting the look right is the hardest part. http://www2.ljworld.com/photos/2010/jun/25/194138/

I thought about walking along some bike paths out by the lake, but the crazy nekked homeless people are out there, too. The upside is there are usually some handsome young emo lads in the area to come to the rescue. I think the most profound influence I've had in this town is more men are taking their shirts off. I never wear shirt, anywhere. http://www2.ljworld.com/photos/2010/jun/17/193790/

I think I may have fighted Babboy at the gym once. It was close, but I still won. I like Babboy.

HollisBrown 2 years, 10 months ago

Dancing, anywhere and everywhere. And fighting. I hand out tune-ups like candy. The only reason I go places like the Merc and Walmart is there are plenty of people to randomly start fights with. It weighs on me, though. Every time I check in at the gym the lady says "Good morning, Mr. Brown. Who will you be fighting today?" I just roll my eyes and tell her I have to see who's there first. Plus, they play 97.5 there, so I always hear Ke$ha and many other danceable tunes.

How would you feel if you couldn't enjoy public space because of human attack dogs molestering and grabbing you? Huh? No, you wouldn't like it all.

Running to the store for more beer is my favorite exercise. I do run and swim. Lift some. I lifted weights Saturday, now I can't get my arms above my head.

Before Lawrence street harassers scared the bejeezus out of me I always totally loved walking. Too bad people in this part of the country are raised to be so aggressive and insensitive to others and the fact that they are not God's Gift and might not have the competence or intelligence others prize in their associates.Get a clue. Others have no reason to trust you or think well of you . If you are the type who hassles strangers anyone might doubt your character and competence. The presumptuous molestation and grabbing people and their belongings is going way too far--positively illegal. Then you turn into attack dogs when told to back off--just shows your true inner creepiness. Any town where someone can''t freely enjoy public space and get needed exercise by walking to destinations is just a crappy place to live. What a crazy, heartless, and destructive place.

Some even use cold gravy as a dip for chips. I'm not making that up either. I saw it while on field exercises in the remote parts of south central Kansas. Someone could market that right next to the French Onion dip...Sour Cream and Chive...Sausage Gravy...

"leftover biscuits and gravy"

Wow . . . I've never experienced that. Don't know if I could back away from the table without putting some of it in my pockets . .

"Hey T_O_B, I was at the grocery store yesterday and saw in the frozen food section that they have a biscuits and gravy frozen breakfast pizza. I think the brand was Palermo, or something like that, if you are want to try one. I did not get one."

Yeah, I've seen those. Isn't there mozorella involved also? Yesterday was father's day which means I have leftover biscuits and gravy and leftover chicken fried steak, taters, and gravy. I think I'm going to meet my weekly gravy quotient about 12:30 pm.

I seem to be drawing quite a following! Fluxie, rantor and the man of a thousand names (and threats)!! Good! They are not bothering anyone who might be a little more sensitive about these things. Makes me feel I'm helping keep the sewage from overflowing. Good exercise . . .

What is my favorite? Couch rodeo, boy rodeo or bed rodeo. But I am (hopefully) slogging about for a 5 mile trot tonight after work. Unless it gets storm. Then I'll be like an angry hamster on a wheel at my gym. I adore my newish KSwiss Tubes. They make me bouncy and prancy when I run.

My sis & her husband have run virtually every day for more than thirty years. They iz healthy. They inspired me to do the same for a number of years before I switched to Roe's methods. Now I yam fat.
Recently I started back with the sister's way. Now I yam fat & sore. Actually, I like running because it feels good when I stop.

Who has time for exercise? Cleaning all day, rentals moving out, yard work, racing around up and down stairs, and somehow squeeze in painting two houses. Hell, I need a rest break. Thank god I can't roof, get to pay someone to do that.

A buddy of mine has run at least two hours per day since he was 15 years old, plus many marathons, half marathons and 5 K's. By my calculations he has added approximately 3.75 years to his life. If the skin cancer doesn't get him . . .

12 oz. curls of course. I don't get near enough exercise anymore . . .

Preferred method? Having sex of course. But that burns only about 300 calories per hour... so I use the elliptical and burn 700 calories in an hour twice a week and lift weights 4 days a week with one day off.
