Random Thoughts and Musings

Today was consumed by planning my strategy for this year's "Get In Shape" contest at the gym. It is fun to focus on strength training and mix it up for three months. I am one of those nutty people that likes to exercise, and having a chance to compete at fitness is something I look forward to. I figure it is a better thing to be addicted to then drugs or cigarettes, so that is my excuse.

I want to send a belated congratulations to Lisa at Sequentially Speaking for her 1,000th blog post. She is a wonderful person, and I always enjoy hearing what she has to say. Here is to many more!

Swinebread at Atomic Romance celebrated his one year blogoversary. He is another one of my favorite folks, so I have to give a shout out! You rule, Swinebread.

Over at Eagle's Roost, Eaglewing gives his list of things that happened in 2007 that had an impact. It is very well said, so go give it a look.

The always insightful Mark Engblom has a fantastic insight on one of the truly awful covers to ever hit the newstand. I loved how well he said what needed to be said about the cover to Thor #482. Head over to Comic Coverage and check it out.

Redhead Fangirl got the coolest Batgirl gift I have seen for quite some time. I am officially jealous.

On that note, I am off to get all my stuff ready for the work week. We ordered our supplements for the contest and have the plan, so now I just have to focus on keeping work the priority it needs to be.

Have a wonderful evening!

Well, I'm not sure if it was "fantastic insight", but it felt good to work off some negativity on that dreadful Thor cover. Whatever the case, thanks for the plug, Heidi!

Thanks for the link! Good luck with the get in shape contest.

I’m honored that I’m one of your favorite folks. J Discovering your blog was literally one of the best things about my blogging experience over the last year. Thank you for the nod Heidi.

So, should we expect to see you on American Gladiator this season, or next? :)

Mark, that post was just plain awesome. I always thought that cover was pretty awful, so to see it declared in such a fantastic day was the icing on the cake.

Heidi Meeley said...

Eaglewing, you are welcome! I appreciate the well wishes also. Hopefully I make it the full 12 weeks!!

Heidi Meeley said...

Swinebread, the honor was all mine. I really enjoy checking out your blog. You call 'em like you see 'em and I appreciate that. It is always a pleasure to head over there!

Also, the Ramblin' Rod post sealed it forever. LOL!!

Lisa, would it sound bad if I told you I was thinking about it? LOL! I have a long way to go, but I do like watching those buff chicks kick some butt. It is a sickness I have. :-)

Heidi - I think it'd be AWESOME! You could totally do it. I'll be your #1 fan, well maybe #2, right after James.
