class was cancelled

so i wasn't able to give my tribute to George Costanza. since i was up and about at 9:30 in the morning with nothing to do, i hit the gym for about an hour. i witnessed a lady climb onto a treadmill and then proceed to stand there for ten minutes while she channel surfed. when she finally found a suitable program to entertain her, she cranked up the ol' treadmill to a frighteningly neck break speed of pokey. i think only zombies creep faster. (you know the ones that take a step per minute and still manage to catch you and eat your brains.) when her TV show didn't prove to be satisfactory, she stood on the side railings to find a new one because moving like a slug and pressing a button at the same time might actually force her to burn a calorie. by this time, i've run a marathon on my elliptical machine and am about to start convulsing in agony. the lady then settles on a channel and proceeds her dainty workout while i'm gasping and sweating like a lumberjack. i'm nowhere near done when Mrs. Fake Workout starts fanning herself and calls it quits. God, i hate the gym.

Was she the type that wore make-up while she worked out, too? I hate that.

Hello!

I am visiting from your landlord (slightly drunk) who is running a contest for your blog. That's a good landlord.

I just wanted to invite you to visit my blog: http://usaer.blogspot.com

You live in Texas and my blog is about Texas. More importantly, there is something our elected officials are doing that should be stopped... the selling of part of Big Bend.

Thank you. If this does not interest you, I am sorry to have taken your time.

I hate that about the gym. Though I do enjoy changing the channel on them. Once they have finally settled on one, just walk up and flick it to a different station. Preferabbly do this on your way out. Of course, they don't work out, so what are they going to do, beat you up?

bunny- i'm that person! in my defense, i go to the gym straight after work so i'm still wearing my make-up. i've found that if i even think of stopping somewhere, i'll punk out and ditch the gym.

cybercelt- where can i buy some? JK i'll check it out. i'm always interested in what's going on in Texas.

battlerocker- unfortunately, i'd have to climb onto the offender's cardio equipment to change the channel, or sneak in a remote so i could change everyone's TVs. i don't think i have the energy for either.
