Somebody's in for it

Yeah, you gotta pay attention to those expiration emails the registrar sends you...

I was tempted to attempt a backorder but figured what's the point. It'll probably get sorted out in the next few hours, I'm sure.

Progress!

I told y'all I'd do better this week!

Current weight: 170

Lost in the past week: 3
Lost since January 8: 8

I've still got about 15 lbs to go but being at the approximate one-third mark feels great!

Been a while

Tonight I took our oldest out on a date. I used to do it more often but over the past year or so I've allowed the busy-ness of my life to get in the way. We were way overdue for a little one-on-one time where I could spoil her a bit.

We went to our normal spot, the "B Mall" as she's always called it, and did our normal ritual (merry-go-round, hot pretzel bites, pink frosted cookies at the Coffee Beanery, Disney Store, etc).

So often I feel like the majority of time I spend with her is time spent telling her "no" or "stop" (she is 4 after all). So it felt good tonight to say "yes" to everything she wanted to do. Thankfully she didn't request any outrageous purchases while we were at the Disney Store, so I was able to bat a thousand when it came to wish-granting.

Argh, if only this Blackberry had a camera it would be perfect. :(

Eliot "John" Spitzer

Spitzer Linked To Prostitution, Likely To Resign

Video

Huh.

Gov. Eliot Spitzer has told senior advisers that he had been involved in a prostitution ring, The New York Times reported Monday, citing an anonymous top administration official.



And the irony is...

His cases as state attorney general included a few criminal prosecutions of prostitution rings and into tourism involving prostitutes.

In 2004, he was part of an investigation of an escort service in New York City that resulted in the arrest of 18 people on charges of promoting prostitution and related charges.



Maybe it's like one of those cases where the narc ends up a junkie, or something.

Long time, no see

Tonight I'm going to my first Sabres game in like 4 years. A co-worker had an extra ticket and offered it to me. Nice!

Here's hoping they come through for me and follow last night's win over Philadelphia with a win over Washington.

A new mindset

This week's weight: 173

I've really become serious about this since last Friday. I don't know what did it, but the OCD finally kicked in!

I know each week it's been either 173 or 174 but I'm going to pull a Joe Namath here and guarantee that I will be 172 or less next Tuesday.

The Grapevine

Tonight we went out to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday. We were going to go to Red Lobster on Maple but it was packed (we should have known better, it always is on Saturday nights). So instead we went to the Grapevine on Niagara Falls Blvd and Ellicott Creek.

I got the Apple Almond Chicken. Dudes, it was awesome. If you ever find yourself there for some reason, I highly recommend ordering it. It was one of the best dishes I've experienced in quite some time.

Also got the Coconut Shrimp. It was good but not like the Coconut Shrimp at Outback Steakhouse -- that is craaaazy good.

Savion Glover

Tonight the wife and I went to see Savion Glover at the UB Center for the Arts.

Who is Savion Glover, you may ask? Just one of, if not the, best tap dancer alive. (WIKIPEDIA - Savion_Glover)

image

He performed with an excellent old school jazz trio. I wouldn't consider myself a "tap fan" per se, but this guy is unique enough to his trade that I couldn't resist going.



One cool thing about him is that he smiles the whole time he's dancing. I dunno... I got a kick out of that.

I won't go out of my way to see him again because to be honest it's a little repetitive (at least to my untrained eye) but it's definitely one more thing I can check off my "things to see before I die" to-do list.

I'm on the verge of a raise

Well sorta. Once this is all over I'll be spending about $40/month less than I do currently. Diapers are crazy expensive.

We started potty training our youngest yesterday now that she's 2. She stayed dry almost the whole day. Atta girl! I'm so proud of her.

We're using M&M's an incentive and it appears to be working. Each time she goes she gets one. Kinda like a carrot on a stick.

There will be tough times ahead I know (been there, done that with our oldest) but the wife and I are enjoying the initial success, for sure.
