Big Lump of Lard

One week to go 'til the triathlon and these are all recent excuses I've given for not exercising:

  • I would lose a good street-parking spot.
  • I've just eaten a bag of pretzels and half a pint of ice-cream.
  • Anna might have a cold and they might not take her at the gym daycare.
  • It's smoky and ashy outside and my health could be affected.
  • Can't be arsed.
  • I don't have $3 to park down at the beach, and I'm too knackered to walk.
  • My wetsuit is wet.
  • I have a wetsuit rash that looks like a giant hickey/love-bite and I don't want to make it worse.
  • I have to watch six episodes of Weeds back-to-back.
  • My cell-phone isn't charged and LK wouldn't know where I was.
  • Anna OD'd on ibuprofen.
  • Periods could attract sharks.

Hilarious. I've used nearly every one of those excuses. And last night... I watched six episodes of Weeds back to back, pausing only to prepare my gourmet dinner of buttered popcorn.

In other news, Emily gave birth to Sierra yesterday at 12:58. 7 lbs, 9 ozs, 19.5 inches. Emily got beat up but everyone is healthy and resting. Word on the street is that Sierra is extra cute.

Now get off your lazy arse and train for that triathalon.

well... maybe I've not used the Anna and LK excuses, but I've used some similar incarnations of them.

Yikes poor Emily. Babies can cause a fair bit of rending, but it's amazing how you forgive them, even if you are left farting at the drop of a hat. Please send our congrats - it'd be lovely to see them again, if only to prove that we don't drink 2 litres of gin every night.
