    The TV is an attractive feature and I have a BlackBerry so I can actually tune into MD while doing my cardio.

    Yesterday, a friend and I enjoyed "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" while on the LifeMotion treadmill. Talking with a friend can make the time fly, too.

    Looking good CJ, keep it up, you can do my cardio also if you want.
    Let me see the female legs first.

    I am not too fond of that show. But Japanese game shows in general, I do like.

    Those people are insane to do those things. I want to be on one

    I have seen, I believe, a few Japanese game shows on TV... or maybe it was YouTube.

    Regardless, that was the first and only episode of that show that I've ever seen. I hate the Survivor aspect of it. They seemed to bully the one girl mercilessly. Just saps the fun out of it for me.

    They take too many of the shows and turn them into a reality-type show. Screws up the formula. I do not watch television so much anymore due to lack of originality... at least not the standard stations anyway.

    However, as long as there is Law and Order: SVU, I am always happy

    I always enjoyed the original series of Law and Order.

    Six years ago was when I moved into my new apartment. I did not bring a television along. Loaded it into my car and took it to my classroom instead. I spend entirely too much time in front of the computer and so subtracting my television viewing hours makes the computer time less offensive so far as "wasted hours" are concerned.

    Of course with the advent of hulu.com the computer is no longer a safe haven from TV!

    So, the mighty CJ has a log.

    I'm glad you're including weights, that way, if I'm actually stronger than you in anything, I can feel smug and superior.

    I'm glad to hear it. Everyone needs a way to pass the time during boring cardio.

    Hey, I'm all about helping good people feel better about themselves. To wit:

    Tonight I did one push up. It was all I could muster. I feel incredibly weak.

    There!

    A friend did ten months for activities involving that particular substance.

    I just wish they'd legalize everything. I'm a school teacher, I value my position and I am therefore squeaky clean. However when I hit age 90 I'm going to try one of each.

    "Yes, give me the heroin, please. Thank you. And a few hits of LSD. Wonderful. Cut me a big piece of that brownie, too, darling. It's my birthday. I'm 90 and I figure, what the fuck, right?"
