The Easter Countdown

For Lent, I gave up eating chips/dips. This is good for me because for the most part (since I don't know how to cook that well) it has been a staple of my diet. It's probably the reason I haven't lost weight even with my work-out regimen.

The bad thing is, I'm craving it more than ever. This is unlike the time I gave up cigarettes. Within a few days after my last puff, I was pretty much over the nicotine need. No mood swings, no cravings, nothing! But this chip craving is driving me up a wall!! The favorites that I miss are barebeque chips!! And of course onion flavored snacks (you know the kind that are shaped like onion rings--not good for your breath, but very tasty).

On the bright side, I've lost a couple pounds!!

Gee I haven't been here in awhile

Hi guys,
Yeah sorry about neglecting this "amazing" blog that Mr Duck has started, but well I have been busy. Sure that's no excuse to abandon you but hey I can't think of anything better. A little update in the life of Phats

I am still teaching HS history between the hours of 7-2

Our cheerleading season that I coach came to end Saturday when our girls basketball team lost in the Regional round of the tournament(elite 8). Although we still have a halftime performance Friday, and tryouts will be right around the corner.

I am still working nights teaching tennis classes at the local indoor tennis center, and helping manage the pro shop

Varsity girls tennis is up next, I am the head coach and the season starts here in 2 weeks.

So see I wasn't lying I am really busy, and as much as I would love to blog I just don't have time. I do today though and as I continue to type this I realize what a shitty post this is becoming and sincerely apologize for that. I didn't want to talk sports on here because that is what my main blog is about. Although I have to say BOILER UP!

Lets see, nothing else really. I did finish a book recently, called "double cross" By James Patterson. It's a part of the Alex Cross series, you know kiss the girls, along came a spider. It was very good and strangely enough it kind of went hand in hand with the latest movie I just saw. Both having to do with Cyber Crimes. My sister, brother in law, girlfriend, and I went and saw "Untraceable" It's really good, it was pretty intense and made me realize I am never meeting anyone from the net, except for Duck since he assured me he's not a murderer.

Alright I thought I should make an appearance over here, we got some bad snow today so the night classes at the tennis center were cancelled. I am going to relax and enjoy some American Idol! Everyone have a good one

Almost Valentine's Day

I went into a card store the other day to buy a birthday card for a family friend and it looked like someone who drank Pepto-Bismol had thrown up in there. The whole store was decorated in pink. And heart shaped snow-flake flying thingamajigs were hanging from the ceiling.

I don't like Valentine's Day!!

Amalgamation - The merging of many things to form one.
