So for the last few weeks I have been following the Pilades for Dummies workout video. Pilades, for those of you who don't know, is the Devil's Yoga. Designed for dancers it has as its main tenants "Pulling your navel towards your spine" AKA "Suck in that gut!". Basically you do these weird movements to improve balance and flexibility all the while keeping your body as tense as a whip-crack.

My favorite exercise is the one called "Rolling Like a Ball". Sit down, grab behind your knees, suck in that gut!, and roll onto your shoulder blades. Then come up back up. Now this sounds like fun only until it's done after about ten minutes of doing other exercises, so if you're like me, makes you nice and covered in a fine film of sweat. So when you go to roll over, you actually land on your back, slide off the mat, and come to a streaking halt on the hardwood floor, leaving a nice red mark when the floor met your back. Yeah, I love pilades.

Its been too long since I blogged. I miss the feeling. But unfortunately we've been kinda busy recently. There was Stampede, which is like a 10-day long hick fest with tourists dressed in "authentic cowboy gear" that makes Calgarians gag. The shit some people will wear out in public literally reels the mind. So that was fun.

We went hiking Sunday at Nose Hill park, which is this big huge green space right in the middle of Calgary. We picnicked and watch the town. It was fun. Then we got sunburned and went home.

I'll be getting rid of my cell phone. It costs over 50$ a month and all it really does is lets me call home during my breaks from work. I almost never get calls on it, and usually end up placing calls on it, which costs money. So I'm going to see if I can get a really, really cheap plan and see what goes from there. I'm doing this because I really, really want cable during the Olympics. I love watching the Olympics, and we don't want another bill, so this is the way to go for us, really.

I'm outta here. Actually, I'm going to go read some stories. You should too. Here's the website:        http://www.tuckermax.com

See ya.

There is a very special circle in Hell reserved for two types of people. People who touch kids, and peple who talk on their cell phone during a play/movie. I mean, what can possibly be so important that it can't wait 2 hours, or if it is important that you stay in touch, put the damn thing on vibrate, and when it rings get out of the theatre. Is that a concept so hard to understand? What I don't get about this article is why it's even being questionned. I think that pepper spray isn't enough. People who talk on phones at the theatre (traditional or modern) should be beaten, the pepper sprayed, and dragged out into the lobby and have their ticket revoked. All that technology that is used on the boarder to control immigration and whatnot, the digital face scanning and fingerprinting, I say bring that into the theatre world. Hotels can black-list people for life, movie theatres should use facial recognition to screen people. If you've been ejected from one theatre in the city, then you have to go to another. If you're kicked out of their, then there is something that need checking. This cop should get a medal and a three-week paid vacation for this, not questionned and investigated. |W|P|109096729619693275|W|P|Southpinellas: Movie drama starts with phone|W|P|7/26/2004 03:03:00 PM|W|P|Mike|W|P|Whitby student suspended for jaywalking Okay, I really don't understand this.

I think Bush Jr. is going to forever go down in history as the president who finished daddy's war for him.

Call me crazy, but does it strike anybody else as stupid, when you're fighting a war against a primarily Islamic country, and against a group of terrorists who follow a specific (and, according to my bro's significant other, rather extreme, corrupt and possibly grossly incorrect) interpretation of the Koran, to justify your actions as being "in the name of God?"

Now, while I respect Mr. Bush's beliefs, I don't get how he doesn't realize just how dangerous this can be. I mean, he's not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer (or more accurately, he makes a bowling ball look like a razor blade), but how can anybody capable of independent thought not realize just how dumb this is?

I tell ya, if the whole "protection of Marriage" amendment gets passed through congress, I will have officially lost all faith in the democratic process.

Finally there are a lot more reviews like this one popping up everywhere. I can't put my excitement into words as people and Microsoft are waking up to the evils of being lazy and deceptive, respectively. If you want a virun-inviting, slow, bloated, and horribly bug ridden browser, stick with Internet Explorer. If you'd like to wake up and join the 21st century, download Firefox and/or Opera today and start surfing the friendlier, safer Internet. I really should be in advertising and marketing, shouldn't I?
