GenCon helped, and I actually dropped a pound during the Con. And while I was finishing my vacation I resisted the urge to be lazy and skip the gym.
Of course, I can't get too flush with victory, as there's a long way to go. In the gym today, I noticed an attractive redhead looking at me. The internal dialogue began...
*Why is she looking at me?*
*Should I just smile or stop and say hi?*
*What should I say?*
Then the logical side of my brain finished assessing the two seconds of video my eyes had fed it and reported its analysis...
*She's trying to read your t-shirt, dumbass.*
