One fat geek's SUCCESSFUL attempt to regenerate into a not-so-fat geek by watching the entirety of Doctor Who while walking on a treadmill

I have never understood why it should be necessary to become irrational in order to prove that you care - or indeed why it should be necessary to prove it at all.

Another quick one today. Tonight I have my very first ever sitzprobe, and I am all kinds of excited. It is not, as it might sound, an elective medical procedure. Rather it is a musical theatre thing where the singers and orchestra rehearse together for the first time in a show. Every musical I have done previously has been tracked, or at most had a piano accompaniment, this is the first show I have done with an actual orchestra. How cool is that? Anyway, I did watch Blake's 7 today on the Time Treadmill, so let me tell you all about it.

That's the trouble with heroics. They seldom run to schedule.

Here in the US it is Memorial Day today, so I would like to start off by taking a moment to honor the soldiers who have paid the ultimate price. I myself wore the uniform back in the late 80's, and through nothing more than pure luck I was never asked to serve in combat. I separated from the Army the same month that Iraq invaded Kuwait, and my unit went. I know that some of the men and women that I trained with at Fort Dix, Fort Eustice, and and in the 92nd Transportation Company ultimately served in the Iraq War, and I am equally certain that some of them never came home. I don't like to talk about politics here, and I am not about to start today. I will simply say that I did, in fact, take some time today to remember and honor those who have served. 

But anyway, moving on to Blake's 7 and working out...

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!

I have been really lax in updating this blog for for the past month. Some of the reasons are good, some of the reasons are not so good. I hope you will forgive me, my dear imaginary readers, for my lapse. After more than two years of near-daily updates, I got a little behind. But it doesn't mean I wasn't working out or watching Doctor Who, not by a long shot.

Still Alive

Still Alive

Holy cow, it's been a month? I got a sinus infection, which turned into an ear infection. Then I had to take an unplanned trip to the other side of the country for some family stuff. Then I got back to working out, but got another cold. Plus I got wrapped up in rehearsals for a show I am in. Mostly, though, I got a little behind on posting and then each day it got more difficult to catch up. So this is me saying, hi, I'm still alive and still on the treadmill. Tomorrow I will catch up with my data entry, and fill you in with what I have been watching. Friday I have a date for a photo op with David Tennant and John Barrowman, so I expect I will have a little somethign to post then. Thank you to everyone who reached out to me to see if I was ok. I really am, but I appreciate your concern. More tomorrow.

Morbidly Obese

Morbidly Obese

As you, my dear imaginary readers, have surely noticed, I am not posting here nearly as often as I used to. The simple truth is that after two full years of writing on this blog very nearly every day, and after watching almost a thousand episodes of Doctor Who and its various spinoffs, I just don't feel the need to write on a daily basis. That doesn't mean that I am not working out, or that I am not still watching Doctor Who. Quite the opposite. It does mean that I have been shaking up my routine. That led to this past week's encounter which I would like to talk about. Here, then, is the tale of how I quite literally worked my ass off for two full years only to be called Morbidly Obese by a perky twenty-something personal trainer.

That's a comfort. I should hate to be eaten by something stupid.

I hate personal violence, especially when I'm the person.
