Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: GHRs, Fat Scales for Kids, Comcast Sucks!
I’m kind of short on time this morning – namely, because yesterday I spent half the morning on the phone with Comcast trying to figure out why both our internet and cable keep cutting out only to be directed to their automated voice system like four times.
Me: Hi, our cable and internet isn’t working…….again.
Comcast: I’m sorry to hear that, do you want us to refresh the signal?
Me: No, I want you to jump into a shark’s mouth.
Comcast: Well, Shark Week does start this week on the Discovery Channel, I’ll get right on that.
We’ve been in this apartment for about six weeks now and I think in total, I’ve called Comcast at least twelve times complaining about service – literally calling every other day. One day the cable is “skipping,” and the next, our internet is painfully slow and/or our network is down or limited to local access only (whatever the hell that means). Regardless, I’m about ready to scissor kick someone in the pancreas.
So, while I was supposed to spend the majority of yesterday catching up on work and other shenanigans, instead, I spent half of it on the phone with freakin Comcast.
Nevertheless, I realize I didn’t blog yesterday, and I’m being a lamo today and just posting some cool things to check out, but assumimg I’m not throwin in jail when the Comcast guy gets here this morning, I’ll have some stuff up tomorrow.
I hate my life!

A few weeks ago, JC wrote a phenomenal post on the marketing ploys (read: straight up shadiness) of the mainstream fitness industry (magazines) to get women to “think” that all they have to do is lift those cute, little pink dumbbells in order to get fit. Here, JC proves that training like a girl is anything but pink dumbbells.
