What I’ve Been Up To

I haven’t posted a lot lately, I’ve been watching movies but had a lot on my mind. I’m now engaged to be married to the gal I call “Firecracker” here; her name is Sarah and she’s made the past 3 years of my life the cornucopia of awesome that it’s been. She’s got a clever sense of humor, and her smile is like the sun. You know in Swamp Thing, how the sun healed him because he was like a plant-dude? Like that. And she likes steak. What a woman.

I’ve also changed my diet so there will be fewer entries in the best burger contest, but they won’t disappear. I want to compete in an amateur grappling competition, so my training has amped up a bit, and I want to shed these last tenacious 30 pounds, so I can live my childhood dream of growing up to be the Hulk. I recently read Lou Ferrigno’s autobiography My Incredible Life as the Hulk, and it inspired me. He overcame a lot to achieve his goals, and I’m going to apply that to mine- to get in shape to compete, and to begin writing one of the novels I’ve been tossing around in my head for the last few years.

I have a post put together reviewing the movies I’ve watched in the last few weeks and that will go up in a day or two, and then you’ll be titillated with an entry in the Arnold Project, an ’80s trash with Marty Feldman, and a tribute to the king of the modern ape chase movie. Stay tuned!

Oh, I also gave up beer for Lent. Boy, was that stupid.

  1. That's it!! I'm digging out the picture of you as the Hulk (when mom used that green make-up on a stick to "turn" you) and you're ready to "Hulk Smash!!" the table… Just so everyone knows that you REEEEALLY did want to be the Hulk… (and probably still do!) And yes, She is like the sun… I think I'll call her Sunny Southern Sarah from now on! (nice alliteration, eh?)
