Sharing my computer with teenagers is the only thing that keeps my use to a reasonable limit. Keeps life far more balanced :)
The small Dendy cinemas here in Melbourne, who are showing it (art-house style) was amazed that the show is turning over 3-4 times more than it anticipated.
I completely understand your behind and can relate to the teen using computer as the reason! ACK it is crazy!
weaning from McD's can be difficult in the fast paced life of ballgames and practices and work and no time to spend fixing a real meal. It is a delema i am facing at times.
It's definitely tough at times. We do well for a while and then Ferrett gets busy and we fall into a pattern of too many take-out meals. We're there now, and need to get ourselves righted and back into healthy eating.
OH when are we all coming up to watch a movie on the big TV? :) I'd like to meet you. Dunno if that was a possibility or not, but i would LIKE to anyway.
Oh, that's right, you are sort of in the area!
We will have to arrange something soon, though at this point I have no idea when. Keep bugging me, and we will try to get something worked out soon!
well i don't want to be a bug. I'm starting that new job in 2 weeks so i was wondering...
NO worries. We all do have VERY busy lives. :)
No, no, bug away! I can't keep my own name straight these days, let alone other activities. Too many balls, not enough eyes.
I will talk to the Ferrett this evening. What works for you right now?
actually life is so chaotic right now i have no idea!
I think weekends will work for a while. Then who knows. I am starting my new job the 21st on days, then heading to 7 a to 7p days, and finally go to 7P to 7A shift mostly on weekends sometime in August. LOL
7 to 7?! My god, how many days a week?!
12 hour shifts 2 to 3 times a week. NOt bad really, usually a little OT and you end up with 37 to 38 hours in a work week on full time. i use to work this shift all the time... Go in at 6:45 PM and get off work at 7:15 am. :/ yeah. Sucks. But most places work it as 36 hours = full time. Some places have you pick up an 8 hour shift sometime in the 2 week pay period to compensate, and others have workers work 3 shifts one week, and 4 the following, putting them OVER the typical 40 hour work week by 4 hours.
No matter how it's done, it makes for a nice week of time off really, since you cram the hours worked into 12 rather than 8 in a day...
That's the medical field for you. Most hospitals I have worked at do that with Nursing staff nowaday.
Actually, if I could cram in my work week into three days I would take up the chance in a heartbeat! I'd dearly love 3 or 4 days off per week.
yeah it is nice. I spend the first day recovering. LOL. Then have 2 more totally devoted to messing around and having fun. Then that last one is gearing up for the next adventure in working. Or so it use to be. It was nice. Usually though work was not 3 in a row, but 1 her and 2 there. But still 4 off was nice!
I don't know if you caught it or not, but last week NPR interviewed a man who ate the exact same diet as Morgan Spurlock, with one substantial change_ he exercised. Over 5000 calories a day this guy took in, and he exercised (a combination of weight and aerobic training) for one hour every day. Not only did he not suffer any of the negative health effects of Spurlock, but he actually lost weight.
I think the bigger picture here isn't the diet, but our slug-like failure to take care of ourselves overall. Spurlock's film, while horrifying, is a very distorted, one-note comment.
Yes, exercise makes a big difference. Spurlock's point, though, was that people don't. People eat this food while sitting in their cars and in front of TVs.
He discusses the need for exercise and activity, and does not put the blame entirely on fast food, but it is all empty calories, very little nutritional value, and we are feeding it to our children.
You are now the third person to mention "Super Size Me" to me within the last week. Now I DEFINATELY have to go see it. Is it still at Cedar Lee? Looks like I'm setting up an outing Sunday (hopefully) to go see it! :)
Yeah, it's there and will definitely be there. The theatre was full last night.
