This is were the magic happens… My work desk (at On-Card). As you can see in figure 1-1, I have a lot of crap. Sometimes I like to just sit back and look at all the cool stuff hanging out on my desk. To me, this is the best part about not being in grade school any longer. When I tried to bring my Transformers into Mrs. Carriers second grade classroom, I could never get away with having them on my desk… Believe me, I tried… I apparently am supposed to be mature enough to not play with them when I should be working (this is not true of course).
When is my fascination with children’s toys going to diminish? I thought if I grew a beard, some of those childish feelings would leave my head… Didn’t work… To this day, I always cruise by the toy section at Target… Dreaming of the feeling of getting a new G.I. Joe figure. I could still spend hours going through the lego’s, action figures, and nerf section… In a perfect world I get a ton of money, buy a big house where I can dedicate a whole room to nothing but MY toys… I would have all the G.I. Joe, Star Wars and Transformers figures, a mountain of Lego’s (literally), a huge racetrack for HotWheels, every Baseball card ever made and a HUGE beer fridge (always stocked with almost frozen Red Stripe)… Oh yeah, each person that entered the room would have to declare who they felt like being that day… I would walk in and say, “I’m Carlton Fisk”… Someone else might say, “I’m Han Solo”… That would be an AWESOME room.
I weighed myself for the first time in about a month this morning. 210 pounds on the nose… Before I started running everyday and watching what I eat a little more (eating green beans) I weighted roughly 235-240 pounds… Man, that is a pretty decent amount of weight to loose. I weigh less now than I did in college when I was playing ball everyday… I feel pretty good about it.
