Funny what a little guilt can do…

January 8, 2007

Journal, Lauren, Lloyd

So, SOMEone wants to burn forty calories of his own, I see. Oh, it is so wearisome having everyone try to copy me, be more like me, emulate me, imitate me, impersonate …, sorry. Just found the thesaurus function on Microsoft Word.

Anyway, Lloyd finally replaced the D batteries in his bike (without which it will not function), sighed, and said, “One less excuse”. Hooray for Lloyd! He’s pedaling to health!

Guilty as charged!  Get it?  New batteries?  CHARGED??  Get it?

    Hey! That info bar on the bottom of your page stayed at the bottom of your page! Usually when I look at your site from school (which I’m sure I don’t do very often because I am a VERY responsible teacher and hard worker) that info bar bumps to the top of the page and covers over the first post. Did you change something?

      Yeah, Sam started complaining about it, and you know how he gets. I upgraded a few things last night and and one of them fixed it. I’m not sure which one, because I couldn’t find a browser that caused that problem here. But, for the record, anyone with broadband access who uses Internet Explorer deserves every website glitch that they get. A pox on the house of Microsoft!

    And did you burn 40 calories, Lloyd? Or did you beat Lauren, just to spite her?

      I typically do one of the few built in “programs” on the bike. They change the resistance (like going up hill) and the speed (it beeps at you if you don’t speed up or slow down). This particular program was 20 minutes long and was something like this: flat, flat, mostly flat, slight hill, steeper hill, slight hill, mostly flat, flat, flat (they don’t get the whole “downhill” thing). It said I burned 156 calories.
