Lancing an Enormous Boil

No, that's not the reason I haven't been posting, I just haven't felt like it.

Instead, I've been reading more, about everything but politics.  The Cowboys have been going through training camp and are playing their last preseason game tomorrow night.  What with suspensions, injuries and all the other usual drama surrounding the team, I've been trying to keep up with all the news and transactions.

Unlike nearly every other article I read online about anything else, I avoid reading the comments under the DallasCowboys.com articles.  Why?  Because they're usually made by kids or other people who should limit their opinions to sports they "might" know something about...like tiddlywinks or hopscotch.

Also, the people who run the site don't even seem to make an effort to limit the spam and certainly don't delete obvious spam messages.  There's one type that I've started seeing more and more of on the 'net;  it starts out by agreeing with someone, usually someone who hadn't even posted, then they go into their spiel about how much money they make and how "you can do it too!"  Like this:

Lauren . I can see what your saying... Eleanor `s bl0g is incredible... I just got themselves a Fiat Panda after having made $6556 this-past/4 weeks and-in excess of, ten thousand last-month . it's by-far the most rewarding I've had . I began this 9-months ago and immediately began to earn more than $79.. per-hr (link removed)

Here's the latest one that made me SMH:

niceJoshua .I'm in love..... his name is forny, I just lanced a enormous boil and I'm ready to go after that man.  I'm  making $84 this five weeks past and just over $210  this past 4 months ...... it's by-far the easiest work Ive had and I've found the man of my dreams . (link removed)

What if forny has a boil fetish, whatcha gonna do now?

It's just a broken or expired link, but I can't help but think it's Karma reminding me of the significance of my life.

The Average Would Be Lower

But I bring the mean weight up:

Texas Is Not Obese!! Go Ahead, Eat That Cheese Enchilada!!

I usually am not thrifty with my posts; after all, I don't pay for the electrons or the server space, but this one should include the word of the day:

gormandize\GAWR-muhn-dahyz \ , verb;

1. To eat greedily or ravenously.

That's one of those words we fat people like to use to describe our otherwise piggish eating habits.

I "bumped" up this post because I'm now wondering if since legalizing pot, Colorado still has a low rate of obesity. Y'know, munchies and all that....

It's Because My Soul is Cool

Your Soul Is Connected to the Fall

You are a somewhat sensitive soul with a tough exterior. You are street smart and wise about the world.

You have the heart of a poet, but you're not too eager to let anyone else see it.

You are very creative and deeply talented. You are still looking for the perfect outlet for your expression.

You embrace change and think the cycles of life are beautiful. You don't shrink away from the darker elements of life.
