Monday's Post

What the fuck? Roadrunner has decided to discontinue it's Usenet service effective today. When do I find this out? Today when I tried logging on to Usenet. I think this is a shitty thing for them to do. When I first started out on the internet, Usenet was the place to meet people. I was a frequent contributor to the various gossip groups, some comic book groups, a soap group.... Now it's all gone. Not that I posted with any regularity there in the last few years, but I still read some of the groups. That, and download the new episodes of Doctor Who as they became available. I couldn't wait for the episodes to show up on Sci-Fi (all hacked up and full of commercials). This couldn't have happened at a worst time, either. DW has heated way the fuck up and it's just going to get hotter before the season ends. Two more episodes make up the final story of the season and I'm going to have to figure out another way to get them. Aaaarrrrgggghhhhhhhh!!

Not that anyone cares, but on the weight front, I was down 0.8 lbs today. Naturally this couldn't have been yesterday's weigh in. My plan is to be at 190 (though the thought of 189.9 is very appealing) by the time we go on vacation in September. I'm sure I can do it. It's five (or four) measly pounds.

On the vacation front, I've started talking to the Orlando based folks about a get together. I'm really excited about this and not the least bit scared, but by September, I'll be in the full fetal position, scared shitless. But that's just me. Looks like we already have a restaurant picked out for dinner. It's the same place everyone went to during the Gay Days festivities a couple weeks ago. I'm really anxious to get away and can't wait. My anxiousness kicked up a notch today at work when Michele reminded me that she's leaving for Orlando on Sunday. I'm jealous, but not too jealous since it's going to be busy down there. At least in September, it should be as bad, even taking into consideration the Free Dining Plan that Disney is offering.

I want ice cream. Is that wrong? (The answer is YES, in case you were wondering.)

You sweet man, you left a comment on my blog and I was being such a slacker about updates. I'm not always like that, I promise. Try Bittorrent for DW episodes, it's what Travis uses. We should have downloaded the DW episodes this time around, too, but we didn't think we'd mind that much. On second thought, we -do- mind. Bleh.
