All right, all right, I know… I haven’t posted in a while. So sue me. Things have been a bit hectic around here in D’Arque Bishop Land. I figure it’s about time I rectified that with an update or two. So, I apologize in advance as this is going to be full of random tidbits. :-)
First off, I finally gave in and got myself a Twitter account. You can find it at http://twitter.com/drkbish. The main reason I did it was because I found myself doing the status update thing more than anything else on Facebook, and decided that Twitter was probably a better way of doing it. Heck, it’d be nice for keeping friends updated when I go on trips like to E3 or to Las Vegas. Finding a decent client for the iPhone helps as well. Now if I could just figure out a way to put the Twitter feed on the main page of my site… (No, I’m not going to use LoudTwitter.)
My dieting is paying off quite nicely. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been losing about two pounds a week. As of this past Friday, I’m down to 209 pounds. In total, I’ve lost 49 pounds since starting my weight loss regiment, and only have about 14-15 to go. In fact, I haven’t been at this weight in over ten years. It’s been great… it’s surprising how many people have come up to me and told me they noticed I lost weight. In fact, while I was at my work’s Cypress location today, one of the CNC programmers told me that a number of the shop people were talking about how much weight I lost. My goal right now is to hit 190-195 pounds by the time June rolls around. At this rate, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. :-)
Actually, the one problem I’m facing now is a good thing, but still an annoyance. When I started, I wore 40 inch waist pants, and really should have been wearing 42 inch waists. Right now I’m on 38 inch waist pants; in fact, a couple of weeks ago I went through my closet, pulled out about 20 pairs of 40 inch waist pants, and either tossed them out or gave them to charity. However, the 38 inch waist pants are now beginning to fall off me. Within a couple of weeks I’m going to need to go out and buy some 36 inch waist pants. As nice as it is being able to go get smaller pants… I really didn’t need the expense. :-)
I’ve also had something of a social life these past few weeks. A few weeks back a group of us from the 30+ Club met up to go to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, where half of us went to Body Worlds and the other half saw The Birth of Christianity: A Jewish Story. I went through Body Worlds… it was interesting, if a little creepy. Afterwards the group went to the Chocolate Bar (at Eric’s suggestion) where we had chocolate ice cream and chocolate cake. Two weeks ago we all met at Sean’s dad’s house for his bday, to celebrate the release of the soundtrack to season one of Red Cedar Place (long story), and to toast the house as his father was selling it after twenty plus years of ownership. Then, last Saturday, we all met at Indian Wok for some good Indian food. Either eating pho with sriracha, sushi with wasabi, and the like helped or my order got mixed with Brian’s, as the lamb vindaloo I ate wasn’t nearly as bad as I was expecting. It was hot, but not unbearable. I don’t know if I have any plans for this weekend, though… I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
Ah, well. I think that was all that’s happened to me in the past few weeks, other than a fright involving the girlfriend that I’m not sure she’d want me to post about here. In any event, it’s time for me to relax for a few before I get around to doing my DDR exercise. How fun…
