I'm starting a new life. Or something. I've moved this blog to Blogspot, just for the hell of it. I'm going to start recording my weightloss. I'm a fat ass, so don't be scared by this graph:

(What's a nuke block? Email me to let me know.)

I'm starting to work a little overtime since I'm done with school and I need to save a little money for my internship next year. I currently make somewhere around 30K and internships pay around 10K. That's a big jump. Plus, I can't work at this job a lot since I'll be working the internship. But, I'm going to try and work here nights and weekends.

Here is a contact center. It sounds cool but it's not. I'm pretty much constantly busy and I can't get up from my chair without my supervisor knowing about it. Plus, the headsets hurt your ears.

I'm also working on my backyard some. I'll try to take some pictures and post them here, in case anybody is interested.

I'm chronically interested in the news (I'm probably one of the few newds that actually took up Audible.com's offer to have a free year of the New York Times Daily Brief) so this will probably turn into an angry rant at some point. I'm going to try to keep it mellow, though. My wife has warned me not to comment on things like this (warning: WMV video file, requires Windows Media Player. I'm really not impressed and I'm really angry about it but I won't comment further. Really.

So, over the next few days/weeks I'll be updating this blog a little bit more. Maybe I'll throw some harmless Google Ads on here (haven't looked in to it, just thought about it) and pretty it up a bit. I know that I want to add a blog roll and trackback (I don't know if that will work for my purposes, though.. we'll see). I'm also going to add a list of sites that I read almost daily. Especially Fark, Metafilter, BoingBoing, DailyKos, and Wonkette. However, at the current moment, I am devouring My Secret Life as a Prostitute. I love it. In fact, that's what has spurred me to write about my own life. Not that my life is all that interesting. I'm a 26 year old man with two kids and a lovely wife. But I really want to get into this blogging thing. Maybe it'll just keep me entertained at my current job.

I also want to add something similar to Wil's right hand sidebar with a listen to, read, and whatnot. (Dumbass me spelled Wil's domain name with two "l's." Duh. I'll probably throw in my weight graph over there and keep it refreshing. I need to weigh myself when I get home tonight. I'm sure it'll be more than 270, though. I'm such a lard ass.

Which reminds me: I'm going to talk to my doctor about weightloss, just like I've been told to do by all those TV ads (consult your doctor before starting any exercise plan). We'll see what she has to say. I have to see her about some rashes I have. My wife thinks I may have ringworm (!!!) but I also have some sort of vitamin deficiency in one area and heat rash in the third area. None of these sites are even all that gross. I think the heat rash is on the other side of my elbow on my left hand. The vitamin deficiency (I've been told that that's what it was before by a dermatologist) in on my right side, nearly out of sight. And the ringworm (!!!) is on my right leg, on the back of my knee.
