I'm off to me old pal Matt's bachelor party this weekend. No sleep tonight!!!

someday I'm going to die, and I'll have to say goodbye to everyone and everything I care about. I can't even imagine how difficult that's going to be. Maybe if I start acting like I'm already dead it will make the actual dying easier.

My artists collective had a meeting tonight, and the topic of spirituality came up. It was an interesting conversation. Here's what I drew in my sketchbook during the discussion. (I added the color later).

Do It!

It just never seems to end. What's next? What's next? What's Next?

Who's that with the whip anyway?

Here is what I looked like as I ran in the triathlon yesterday. I included two poses so you could get an idea of what I looked like in motion.
It was a lot of fun. I got up at 3:30am and drove up to Malibu where 2,000 other athletes and many more supporters, etc. were trying to park. I somehow met up with my teammates, Alan and Ginny (I didn't have their cell numbers and they didn't have mine-- good planning). It was all pretty hectic, especially in the "Transition Area" where the athletes had to go after each leg to either change shoes & stuff (for individual participants) or hand off the timing chip to the next team member (for the relay teams). By the time I got to run it was already sunny and getting warm.
I was pretty happy with how I ran because in the past I almost always went out too fast and ended up struggling toward the end of the race, be it a 5K or a marathon. This time I paced myself pretty well. It was a 4 mile run and I was shooting for 7 minutes per mile. I ended up averaging 7:03 per mile-- pretty close.
Next year I'll run 6 minute miles-- if I'm able to change my running form, that is.

What To Do?

If you've been wondering what you should do with all the extra money you have lying around, you could go here and donate some of it. (Note from Kenny: They are no longer accepting online donations. Sorry!) I'm doing the running leg of a triathlon on Sunday, and whatever money I raise goes to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. I should have mentioned it sooner because I don't even know if you can donate after the event.

We're working on a "Special" episode of SpongeBob, and a film crew has been here for the past couple days interviewing some of us. This is an actual still photograph of my interview.

The Umbrella of Reason

Phew! What a relief! There was no nuclear war yesterday (none that I noticed, anyway). But, even so, I'll keep my little umbrella of reason open. Though it may not protect me from falling bombs, it will definitely keep me dry from the ever-present storm of religious bullshit.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, refer to the post from September 1st.

"I Can Take It!"

I noticed that sometimes when I'm reading a horrible news story it feels like a test, and if I finish the article my prize is a slightly thicker skin.

The Good Idea

Me: "Hey Good Idea, c'mon out!"
Good Idea: "Not until you cheer up."
Me: "OK. I'll try."

A man's gotta 'do what man's gotta doo.


I'm in a Fantasy Football league with me ol' pals, and the online draft was lastnight. I think I did OK, but I did make one big mistake. Oh well. I'll just spend the season in the corner.

No Vote For You.

I'm completely in favor of third party candidates. I'm even in favor of creative campaigning. But when Gene Chapman left a blob of spam in the comments of yesterday's post it irritated me. He thanked me for visiting his site, but of course I'd never heard of the guy, let alone visited his website. So, right off the bat, instead of piquing my interest in him as a potential candidate for president, he alienated me with his disingenuousness.
I ultimately DID visit his site so I could see what he looked like, and I thought it was kind of funny that right under his photo is written, "I am an anti-communist!" as though communism is something anyone worries about anymore. That bogeyman is all played-out. Today's buzzword is "Terrorism." (Oops, I mean "Islamo-fascism." pardon me!) Maybe if he'd been running 60 years ago when McCarthyism was in full swing he could have gotten a few fear-votes, but not today. Get with the times, Gene "The Anachronism" Chapman.

I went running on Sunday, and as usual, some stupid kid had something "clever" to say to me. I wish it had actually gone like this, but I didn't think of that retort until later. It did have a happy ending, though:
I continued running without saying anything, but after about 20 yards, I stopped, turned around and started walking back towards them, and they ran away. I win! Stupid kids.

Save The Date!

So, this Stool-Fool says that a nuclear war is going to break out on September 12th of this year. I'm looking forward to hearing what he has to say on September 13th after nothing happens. I have a feeling he'll be very quiet.
