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.
