    TS, Indian food and sitar music. Are you "matching" your diet and listening experiences and if so....what's next?

    Hey SWMI that sucks about the accident. So sorry, but do let me assure you that your insurance company probably has some very smart, very tough (and sometimes viciously cynical and cheap) adjusters who will be debunking grandma's claims against you. I used to work with some of these guys. Yikes they are scary. Have no fear.

    I missed going to the gym this morning and I already feel like crap. First day missing a workout in almost 2 months.

    On the other hand I am sore from the change up in my workout that started on Sunday. I think I over didit the past few days The new program is:
    Day 1: 200 weighted ball crunches; back workout with supersets; 28 min fat burn on elliptical
    Day 2; 200 weighted ball crunches; Arms workout with supersets; 30 min treadmill fat burn
    Day 3; 200 weighted ball crunches; 1 hour cardio on bike
    Day 4; 200 weighted ball crunches; legs workout with supersets; 28 minute fat burn on elliptical
    Day 5; 200 weighted ball crunches; chest workout with supersets; 30 min treadmill fat burn
    Day 6; 200 weighted ball crunches; shoulder workout with supersets; 28 minute fat burn on elliptical
    Day 7; 200 weighted ball crunches; 1 hour cardio on treadmill

    The old program was a 3 day split with a day of walking or light jog on track in between.
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    Thank heavens it wasn't your fault. Heck... you're in Michigan so it's nobody's fault! As long as you have insurance and the other driver has insurance, you should have nothing to worry about.

    Yesterday there was a three hour standoff with a suicidal man who had pulled off the road and was holding two knives to his neck, standing next to his car. The police used a robot to close the trunk of his car just in case he had a gun in his trunk. They also used the robot to offer him McDonald’s food. It wouldn’t really make a difference what kind of food it was, but that cracked me up. What kind of mixed message does that send? “We don’t want you to kill yourself, but you’re only worth an Extra Value Meal to us.”

    Is such violence tolerated here in Cyburbia or is that an acceptable and appropriate response ?

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Don't beat yourself up about it. You don't have to talk to the other party's insurance rep. Tell them that you gave your report to your company and end the call. They'll call you and call you for a couple of weeks, trying to get a story that favors their client.

    I originally thought you posted "getting back into box" and the first thing that popped into my head was this children's book. It's a great read.
