Allentown Athletix Group Discount
The more the better, but it looks like the magic number is 5. If we can get five members of (e:strip) (myself included) to sign a one-year commitment, the group rate would be $309 per person (a savings of $170/year over the regular rate).
Anyone who previously was an (e:strip) discount group member at AA (http://www.allentownathletix.com/Facilities.html) and who was told the discount was over but recently signed up for 180 "dollar days" is eligible -- with the group discount and a one-year commitment, the $180 already paid would be credited toward the $309 annual fee.
The big issue of course is coordination and getting enough people to commit. I'm willing to do the coordination part, but only if enough people express a SERIOUS willingness to sign on the dotted line. Not to be a bastard, but I don't want to waste a lot of time and effort if folks are just going to flake out at the last second.
So, if you're thinking about getting a new gym membership, or are a 2009 (e:strip) group discount member coming up for renewal at AA (and not moving to Portland), and you are SERIOUS about making the commitment, then please contact me. If not, please don't.
Anyone who does contact me, I will be in touch. If we reach critical mass, we'll talk about the next step. OK?
Thanks for reading and I look forward to replies.
P.S. Sorry that I have neither the wit nor charm of (e:james). Curse my wretched sense of humor and lack of appreciation for polite society!

Brunch at Left Bank last Sunday
Hot coffee, spicy Bloody Mary, shrimp bisque
Breakfast bruschetta (w/egg, sausage, and cheese; foreground)
Breakfast tortilla bowl (egg, chorizo, beans, salsa, with homefries)
This morning's homemade breakfast wasn't bad, but just couldn't measure up. Wish we could afford Left Bank every Sunday...

Memo to YOU, parking genius!
For once, the City actually sent a plow up our street to clear all the parking spots. But because YOU parked your Ford Explorer illegally (in violation of the clearly posted alternate side of the street parking regs) directly in the path of the snowplow before it came up the street, the plow had to swerve out to avoid your SUV and left a long trail of snow and ice slanting from the curb to where your truck was parked.
Now there's a huge pile of chunky, heavy, icy snow ruining three or possibly four parking spots in a part of the block where a lot of residents need on-street parking, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT.
P.S. I couldn't help but notice that you moved you truck to a clean spot on the other side of the street last night or this morning. Well played. You are a master of self-centeredness and disregard for your neighbors.
P.P.S. Are you also one of the geniuses who treat PMT's driveway as if it were a public parking lot? --see ((e:paul,47906)) and ((e:paul,50830))

And at home, post-op and still a little woozy.
He's a good boy, even if he did poop on the rug this morning. Yes, the rug that really tied the room together.

new addition to the family: Otis!
We looked around a lot trying to find the right dog for us and our 2-bdrm-apt-in-Allentown lifestyle. We're optimistic that Otis is that dog.
He's a little Chihuahua mix, black with white fur on his chest, muzzle, and paws. Unfortunately tomorrow he gets the ole snip-snip so he might not be himself for a couple of days.
We looked at a lot of dogs at the city shelter and at the Niagara SPCA (never made it to Erie during adoption hours) and also on Petfinder.com and I have to tell you there are so many great dogs that need a home.
More to come on Otis, but in the meantime, consider adopting a dog or cat from the city shelter. (I know I want to take home like 5 or 6, and I wish I could!!!!)
Some really special dogs that have been at the shelter for a while and need (and deserve!) a good home: Blossom (so sweet, and there since October 2009) and Merlin (super friendly and eager to please, there since November?). Also Conan (not for the faint of heart at 160 pounds! but super mellow and a sweet fella).
The people who work and volunteer at the shelter are great. If you're thinking of opening your home to a new dog or cat, definitely make it your first stop.

just say NO!
(Well, "good" depends on your opinion of government stimulus spending.)
From the Wall Street Journal Online:
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) told Democratic lawmakers that a bill to transfer $2 billion in emergency funding from the economic stimulus plan to the program will be voted on Friday, according to a senior Democratic House aide.
The legislation would shift $2 billion from the $787 billion stimulus plan to the clunkers program, which appears to have exhausted its $1 billion in funding after just one week.
While the House, which is set to begin its August recess, will vote on the bill, the Senate is unlikely to do so until next week, according to Sens. Carl Levin (D., Mich.) and Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.). The Senate is in session next week.
