Pathfinder RPG and singer Rhianna. Really?

Fun Pathfinder game last night. SK's comment, though, on Rhianna:

Are you ready to be a father at 13 years old? Really?

How the heck did I miss this in the news? And would you look at him?!?

BOY dad Alfie Patten yesterday admitted he does not know how much nappies cost - but said: "I think it's a lot."

Baby-faced Alfie, who is 13 but looks more like eight, became a father four days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth to 7lb 3oz Maisie Roxanne.

He told how he and Chantelle, 15, decided against an abortion after discovering she was pregnant.

Did I mention Top Gear contacted me earlier this week and wants me to review some of their soon-to-be released stuff?

One Hour at a Time

One of my resolutions is to get our house in some semblance of order. I originally planned to start yesterday, following the old adage, "slow but steady."

Epic fail on starting yesterday. Tonight, though, I succeeded: I worked the allocated daily hour and tossed several hefty bags. Heck, you can actually see the results of my work.

One trash day of work done. 3.5 cups of bold coffee sans soy. I'll take it black tonight, thank you.

Knee gives up a Leg

Back in college, I injured my left so badly I had to get surgery. Well, the ramifications are now hitting me: I can no longer work out.

Specifically, I cannot perform aerobics, my favorite form of exercise. Sharp, stabbing pains shoot up as my foot hits the floor. With a sad wave and face, I told my instructor tonight I would no longer be attending her class. We waved, and I bolted home to shower and contemplate my next move.

I still plan to work out. Like 99.9% of Americans, getting into shape is one of my (numerous) new year's resolutions. How I get in shape will have to change, though. Thankfully I have tons of books, magazine, and online articles on fitness.

Still, I will miss those workouts.

A Nice Finish

Finished off the day with dinner with the Spouse. Said dinner already broke resolution for better health. Ah, well. There's tomorrow.

Gifts from my sibs. Lots of gift certs. And candy. Bad, bad! Squee!

Hot chocolate made by my sweetie. Overall, 4.5 cups of mocha chocolate. Soy, of course.

Carpe Diem (seize the day)


Finished the book review. Whew! Link to follow once it's live.

Now to the so-called "easier" work....
Carpe Diem (seize the day)

Resolution: Hard Stuff First

I remember reading years ago that one technique to organizing one's tasks is to hit the day's hard tasks first, then the easy stuff. Most folks, especially procrastinators, do it in reverse, stressing themselves at the end of the day.

I'm definitely in the "easy stuff first, hard stuff later" category. Thus, first resolution change for the new year is reversing that mantra.

After the first cup of today's coffee, though.
