Just heard some great news. The ezine that I’ve been working on is going to convert into a blog. I think this is great because it will make it easier for people to read it and have access to it (Plus it’s easier to share a link with someone than a step-by-step on how to sign up to a newsletter that doesn’t have a website). So cheers to the ezine becoming a blog. As soon as I get the web address I’ll be sure to share the link here.
The Blog is going to be called NoF Geek And Gamer Pants Party and can be found by this link.
I promised myself that I would exercise more this past week but didn’t. Apparently that week of fun I had is still having a lasting effect. I couldn’t get a regular sleep schedule going. Of course my newest acquired hobby of website building did play a factor to all this as well.
Moving over my blog and podcast sucked out a lot of time and I fell asleep at 2 in the morning on most nights this past week. Not that I’m complaining. I learned some new useful html and WordPress tips that will help me along my DIY path. It was creative energy well spent. This week though I do have to get some writing done. Got a new ezine article I need to write for and of course the writing program I re-enrolled in.
But back to the main point, I lost another pound despite myself, yet again. I started this change of eating habits 4 weeks ago at 242 lbs and am currently 236.5 lbs. In previous weight loss attempts I would lose 5 lbs in one week easy. A faster more youthful metabolism was probably the biggest factor in those previous times and despite that I would eventually lose focus and put on the weight again. This time around I believe I’m doing it right and will keep on course. I think the slow results are proof of that and all the more rewarding.
I would like to say that this is the week I will definitely commit to exercise but this week also happens to be finals week for my dear wife and so most of the apartment will be in disarray as she prepares for her school work, which will leave me very little space to do any jumping around. I will at least try to walk more this coming week. All in all, losing one pound a week has been fun and enjoyable so far.
Last week I had an interview with Tekserve, “New York’s premiere authorized Apple Reseller and Service provider”. They were the Apple store in New York City before Apple opened up their own flagship stores. They’re a great company and I even got my current MacBook Pro from them. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the job. But as they say, when one door closes another window opens. That same night I was told of another job opportunity and hopefully that will yield better results.
Before I got my email regarding my job application rejection, I was of course recording another episode of “The Mundane Chatter Podcast” (available here) and spending most of that night editing it and getting the show ready to post. The following day, Thursday, I noticed that I was having RSS feed validation issues and spent most of that day tinkering with it and finally figured out the solution. If that wasn’t enough to keep me away from blogging this week, yesterday was the beginning of the annual Keith and The Girl Standup and meetup events (which I won a SuperPass for. Yay me!).
Every year on April 15, fans of this well-known podcast meet up around the birthday of the host, Keith Malley, and witness his once a year stand-up performance. He’s had 7 consecutive performances thus far (they’re recorded as albums which you can get at their online store). Circling this night are other events that are set up to keep these fans entertained throughout the week. Last night was Karaoke night. I’ve never done Karaoke before and I attempted and mumbled through “A Blister in the Sun” by the Violent Femmes. It was a hell of a blast.
Tonight is of course Keith Malley’s standup which I’m eagerly awaiting as I type up this entry. Saturday will be a rendition of Matchgame and Sunday caps of this year of events with the first ever Roast of Keith and the Girl. It’s going to be a hell of a weekend of events. But I couldn’t let this stop me from getting at least one more blog entry up this week for you guys.
I also promise to get another article done this weekend for the ezine I’m working on, for the next issue. If you haven’t subscribed to it yet you can do so at the KingDeems’s NoF Portal blog. Anyway, let me go get ready for tonight’s event!
