Parkin’ yonder

March 6, 2012


I’ve been trying to exercise just the tiniest bit. I really want to buy a FitBit – an extremely unnecessary, yet fabulously cool gadget. This thing is like a pedometer on steroids! It will track how much you walk, and will wirelessly sync up to your computer and chart your progress. It can even track your sleep cycles! *sigh*

I don’t need it, though. Keeping track would probably just depress me. I did make a small effort today. Lloyd left too early for me to hitch a ‘walk halfway to work’ ride, so I parked a couple of blocks away from work and walked the rest of the way (a distance of 400 to 8,000 steps, by my own completely unreliable counting).

Cross three streets and yer there.

Would the FitBit warn me if menacing squirrels were afoot?

They're after my truck - I know it!

Probably not. *sigh*

    Maybe it’s for the best that you don’t get a FitBit. You would just be giving our future computer overlords more leverage.

    Lauren: But I don’t want to welcome our new computer overlords.
    Computer Overlords: We know your sleep cycles and we will not hesitate to use that against you.
    Lauren: I submit! I submit!

    Lauren, you are on fire!! You could be the poster girl for being Fit as a Fiddle….or should I say, Upkept as a Ukulele! Either way, it’d be an awesome poster.

    You could always through your fitbit at the menacing squirrels.
