rock crushes scissors

So this is day 3 of 365 of The Twisted Mind Emprium’s Blogonanza “Marathon of Dope” . . .

. . . which has me wondering why Tom Petty’s “Breakdown” just shuffled up on the Media Player.

"The Marathon of Dope" will be an experiment to see it I can sustain a stream of written entertainment stretching an entire 365 days. Will my readership soar to all new highs, exceeding The Twisted Mind Emporium’s all time daily record of 7 readers? I get a tingle in a certain part of my body just thinking about the possibilities.

And the tingling makes it hard to write because that part of my body is kind of key in the whole typing process.

My hand people . . . What were you thinking?

Well, with that introduction to the "Marathon of Dope" out of the way, I’ll get to relating something of personal interest - I hope.

I signed up for Winter tennis yesterday which means my usual hibernation from physical activities and subsequent ten pound weight gain may be staved off this winter season. And that is a good thing - or so most doctors would agree. And you know, most doctors smoke Camel brand cigarettes too. At least I think I read that somewhere . . .

Anyhow, the only drawback I see is the long drive involved. The courts are about 45 minutes from my house on a good dry summer day. Factor in snow and dark and idiots driving with summer tires and that commute will likely hit 1 hour or more.

Still, it’s all for a good cause - supporting a local tennis pro, oh, and keeping my body in the shape of a human being instead of a partially deflated beach ball.

Now on to the Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 1.

Yes, I did like it quite a bit. Nothing beats a good Terminator knockdown drag-out fight scene and The Sarah Connor Chronicles has a few good ones. Summer Glau, as Cameron the female Terminator, does a great job of being tough and clueless at the same time. Not much of a stretch for her if you have watched her performance in Firefly and Serenity.

And the new T-888 models may not be Arnold, but they do a good job of being all Terminator kick-your-sorry-human-arse lethal. It may not be the best TV show around, but it does an adequate job of entertaining my mind - which is all I ask of it.

So, if you haven’t watched it I’d say it’s time to pick up the Season 1 DVD set before Sept 8th (second season premiere) and watch it. I think you will like.

Well, I’m signing off now because I find most intertube cruisers like short passages to navigate.

More tomorrow, and the next day, and the next . . .
