twoapennything: "Dear Boss" Letter from Jack the Ripper to Scotland Yard - 1888 (Television)
Oddly, I'm suffering a full on bout of insomnia. I've been awake since midnight, after having fallen asleep around 10-ish. I can't seem to shut my mind down, although I'm not thinking about anything worrisome -- just work, friends, weight loss, piano lessons, etc. So, I'm up, having a burrito and some green tea and watching Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. And since I'm on the subject, I will briefly offer my best armchair psychologist's assessments of the celebrity participants, most of which I already shared with [livejournal.com profile] jlh.


Let's move on to American Idol:

Okay, the Father/Son vibe here? SO VERY CREEPY. Now, whateverz -- I'm not opposed to people choosing abstinence for themselves, for whatever reason. Damn, I wish my parents had talked to me more about abstinence and choosing relationships, etc, more than they did. But, dudes... CREEPY AND SO WRONG!!!! (OTOH, it's our first Rymon snark of the AI season, and I'm all over that) As always, Television Without Pity sums it up best:

Bruce Dickson (19, Bastrop TX), who has never kissed a girl or had sex with a woman, and cannot stop talking about it. At 13, his dad gave him a Promise Keepers locket and they got all virginal on each other, and God was like, "This is not what I intended at all." Bruce tries to explain the weird mechanics of their creepy incest lockets, like, the dad has the "heart" and the child has the "key" and one day the "heart" will go to a "lady" but until that day, they're both content with the boy shoving his "key" in the dad's "locket" whenever he feels the urge. Even the show is like, "This makes me want to throw up." If this were a girl and her dad, the authorities would be there in a hot minute, but instead the world is like, "I don't get it, I don't want to get it, the kid looks like everybody in a gay porn anyway." High school wrestling looks up from the floor and asks, "Anybody finding this inscrutable but upsetting nonetheless?" And as if I needed to tell you this, the boy walks exactly like Ryan Seacrest. He is also pretty classically victim-beautiful in that helpless blonde Dennis Cooper way, like you don't let this kid on Greyhound without a chaperone, but the dad just managed to make the whole thing somehow even grosser. Suddenly I was like, "What is A-Fed up to these days?"

Today I went to the gym for the first time since 2000. I was really scared walking in there, but all I could do was just walk in there and get on the treadmill. I did 20 minutes on the treadmill and then an upper body workout. One thing that really helped is that the weight machines at the City gym are the same kind I trained on at 24 Hour Fitness, so it came back to me really quickly how to use them, etc. I'm already really sore and I'm sure I'll be paralyzed tomorrow, heh.

Geez, I really need to get some sleep. Yet? Still wide awake. GAH.
