Please Allow Me to Re-introduce myself

My name is Hove – H to the oh-vee…

Someone mentioned mash-ups a while ago. There’s a lot of crappy ones out there, but I have got to wholeheartedly endorse DJ Dangermouse’s “The Grey Album”. Overlays samples from “The Beatles” with Jay-Z’s “The Black Album”. Nice and low-key, good beat, etc. I’ve legitimately bought both albums, so I don’t feel too bad about downloading. I do need to figure out how to get something over to Dangermouse to completely even out my whuffie on the whole transaction.

In any case, it’s a great sentiment – “Please allow me to re-introduce myself” – Not exactly a do-over, but more of a reinvention, rebirth, renaissance. It’s what I’m trying to do with 2005 – physically, professionally, and psychically (The husband and dad thing I’m pretty darn happy with – so I’ve got that going for me).

3 s l o w miles on the treadmill tonight while I caught up on Battlestar Galactica. (The show rocks – if you haven’t checked it out, they’ve got the first episode on their website. A download that won’t send you to jail, if you can believe it. I’m meaning to watch it. They’ve added 4 scenes. Plus, it don’t cost nothin’.) 10 minute pace, but it’s the first run in a week that has felt good. On track for the week, with drill over the weekend.

Eating was better today – coffee, clementines, and a Tim Horton’s raisin bagel for breakfast; 4/5ths of a 6″ Subway club (cheese and mustard, lots of veggies) for lunch with half a bag of bar-b-q chips; and a cup of whole wheat spaghetti with spicy sauce and 3 low fat turkey meatballs for supper. And no desire to hit the monster tonight.

Tomorrow will be a challenge. The program has me going to T-W-T-S-S for running days, instead of the old T-T-S-S. But I’m psyched.

  1. Hey! I went through the same process last year … happy with the wife/mom deal, but declared the year a “mulligan” for many other aspects of my life. Do-overs … the beauty of being a human.

  2. Mine was two years ago and I’m still working on it. Good for the head, good for the soul. Challenges are, too. good luck!

  3. Battlestar Gallactica! What a great show! The first show on TV with “dirty” space craft. Before that, everything looked clean and perfect. Loved it. Except for that stupid robot dog and the kid. Cylons needed to smack the two of them.

  4. Is running supposed to “look like a fit or a convulsion”?

    People say I look like MC Hammer on Crack…

  5. bg! i know the issues the bg purists have with the new show, but shoot, i really dig on it. i haven’t been able to catch many episodes, so i’ll wait till it’s out on dvd to rent, so don’t spoil it for me! haha

    the meals sound good. not depriving yourself and making good, healthy choices (mustard vs. mayo, etc). keep it up!

  6. Tim Horton’s in CT? Are they the lead force in a Canadian assault on the US?

    I love their chocolate cake donuts…
