Me and this idiot are dieting.

He’s doing better than me.  Down 8 pounds since last time you saw him.

He’s not loving the regimen though.

Good luck Dave in Ocean and Moses. I just made a bet with a friend, first to lose 20 lbs wins. The stakes are a steak dinner.

You doing the South Beach diet again?

2. daveintexas - September 27, 2009

Yeah, I am. No carbs, no sugar. No justice, no peace.

3. Mrs. Peel - September 27, 2009

I’ll have to behave myself culinarily for the next few weeks. I skipped my exercise and I’ve put on about 5 pounds, which is a lot on me – my pants don’t fit now. 😦 Oh well, at least I lose weight very quickly. Shouldn’t take more than two weeks to get it back off.

4. daveintexas - September 27, 2009

5 pounds for you is like 23 for me.

Or something. Math is hard.

5. Vmaximus - September 27, 2009

The beagle is looking good Dave

6. daveintexas - September 27, 2009

He’s got a lot of energy back, although honestly, some of it has to be the break in the weather. Those 100 degree days really whipped his furry little butt on walks.

7. lauraw - September 27, 2009

Got some more gorgeous tubers floating in buckets since yesterday for Cathy and the Geezers.

8. daveintexas - September 27, 2009

Ok, are these pod people?

Are you up to somethin?

9. lauraw - September 27, 2009

mwaa ha hha haaaa

*cough*

What? No. Don’t be silly.

10. daveintexas - September 27, 2009

I KNOWED IT

*checks my toes for tentacles and shit

11. kevlarchick - September 27, 2009

Go Mose and Dave. It’s hard work. I should think about taking it up.

12. lauraw - September 27, 2009

Moses has cute eyeliner.

13. Enas Yorl - September 27, 2009

I’ve lost about 27 pounds since the end of July. Not bad, though I could do better.

14. Lipstick - September 27, 2009

You’re kicking butt, Enas!

Mr. L’s lost 20 since the end of July too. He eats 5 small meals a day, only “clean” food like skinless chicken breast, uses pitas or flatbread instead of regular bread, and buys All Whites egg whites for his omelets.

15. Lipstick - September 27, 2009

He often says “oh crap, I’ve got to eat again”.

(I’ve lost 10 🙂 )

16. kevlarchick - September 27, 2009

Rock on Enas and Lips.

17. Enas Yorl - September 27, 2009

Thanks KC! Sounds like y’all are doing well too Lipstick! I’m looking forward to this break in the weather so I can get my bicycle out, walking is getting boring.

Whelp, it’s off to Whole Foods in search of the wiley and elusive Honeycrisp apples.

18. daveintexas - September 27, 2009

I’m going to miss all of you all that is gone now.

19. Michael - September 27, 2009

I’m on the Marlboro Lights diet and it works fine.

20. Tushar - September 27, 2009

Rush said on Leno that he lost 82 lb. That is like losing one complete Mrs Peel.

Oh, and he ran over Al Gore’s cutout twice.

21. Lipstick - September 27, 2009

I’m going to miss all of you all that is gone now.

Don’t worry, I never lose it in the boobs.

22. Lipstick - September 27, 2009

Strange but mostly true.

23. Lipstick - September 27, 2009

I’m on the Marlboro Lights diet and it works fine.

Michael is a fine figure of a man.

24. Tushar - September 27, 2009

>>Michael is a fine figure of a man.

And yet the ladies love Dave.
It buuurns up Michael.
Heh heh heh!

25. lauraw - September 27, 2009

He Michael, there’s a lipstick smear on the seat of your pants. A little soak in Woolite should take care of that.

*gives LD the crazy-eye*

26. MCPO Airdale - September 27, 2009

I don’t diet – JC Penny has a great “Husky” department!

27. daveintexas - September 27, 2009

>> Don’t worry, I never lose it in the boobs.

ohhh sister, I’m a witness!

28. Lipstick - September 27, 2009

*hovers menacingly over LW and raises an enormous foot*

29. Mrs. Peel - September 27, 2009

heh, I lose weight in the boobs first and the thighs last. It’s very annoying.

30. MCPO Airdale - September 27, 2009

I’m in shape. Round is a shape, right?

31. Vmaximus - September 27, 2009

Those 100 degree days really whipped his furry little butt on walks.

I is supposed to cool off by midweek here, our first “cold front” of the year

Our highs are supposed to be as low as 85!

32. lauraw - September 27, 2009

*skitters side to side like a crab, eluding teh bigfeet*

Shouldn’t you be at the edge of the woods somewhere having grainy pictures taken of you by tourists?

OW.

lucky shot

33. Lipstick - September 27, 2009

That’s a fake. I’m not nearly as mangy as that. Thank you Pantene conditioner!

34. lauraw - September 27, 2009

Pantene is good stuff. Their ‘Ice Shine’ is good.

35. daveintexas - September 27, 2009

Is it as good as Redken #5?

I hear that shit can hold up against an F5.

36. Mrs. Peel - September 27, 2009

You and Moses should try dancing. I probably sweated off a pound tonight.

37. daveintexas - September 27, 2009

I am too white to dance.

Seriously. Joe Cocker has smoother moves than me on a dance floor.

38. Mrs. Peel - September 28, 2009

Psssh. I’m as white as they come and I can dance.

39. Dave in Texas - September 28, 2009

It’s my inner whitey that makes me a bad dancer.

Seriously. Think Mike Meyer from SNL doing Sprockets while getting tasered.

It’s that bad.

see what I did there?

40. geoff - September 28, 2009

I am too white to dance.

I’m with Dave on this one: I am one of the kernels of truth that underlies that racial stereotype. I love music and have great rhythm, but there’s a complete disconnect between my brain’s appreciation of music and my body’s expression of that appreciation. Can’t even say that I mind it, really – I don’t really enjoy dance as a participant or even as a spectator.

Throwing a frisbee, however, is a different matter. Back in my yute, when I was decent, people used to ask me, “How come you don’t dance? You look like a dancer when you play ultimate.” To which I replied with a blank look. Aren’t they completely different? In one I’m trying to throw and catch a disc, and in the other I’m flopping on the floor like a fish.

Never could sort that out.

41. Mrs. Peel - September 28, 2009

Maybe they think throwing and catching a disc is like throwing and catching a chick?

I lurv dancing. Music’s on, I gotta dance. Like that “Gotta Dance” number in “Singin’ in the Rain.” Except that I’m no Cyd Charisse.

42. geoff - September 28, 2009

Maybe they think throwing and catching a disc is like throwing and catching a chick?

Naw – it’s the beautissimus way you leap and twirl and catch and throw. The Michael Jordan slo-mo slam dunk kind of vibe. At a very scaled down level, of course.

43. Michael - September 28, 2009

I am too white to dance.

Me too, except I actually turn into a black guy after a few drinks and then I have mad dancing skilz. It’s crazy how that works.

44. Retired Geezer - September 28, 2009

We are going to take Square Dancing lessons.

My assimilation into the world of Geezers is almost complete.

I ain’t getting no matching outfits.

Nope.

No way.

45. kevlarchick - September 28, 2009

Mrs Geezer needs one of those short crinoline skirts that flares out when you twirl her. HOT!

46. skinbad - September 28, 2009

I ain’t getting no matching outfits.

I’ll give it two weeks.

47. Dave in Texas - September 28, 2009

So anyway later on RG is out shopping for matching outfits…

48. lauraw - September 28, 2009

Non matching outfits is going to make them look like non-conformist hoods. The other Geezers are going to look askance at them.

Just tattoo your neck and wear an exposed nipple-ring, why don’tcha, punks?

49. reason - September 28, 2009

The matching-outfits thing serves a purpose, Geezer.

If you get lost, how will you know which wife is yours?

50. Dave in Texas - September 28, 2009

The thought of hearing RG say “dosey-do” has me giggling like a retard.

51. doc - September 29, 2009

Square dancing is fun, just don’t let your friends see you doing it (or get video to be posted here).

52. Retired Geezer - September 29, 2009

Square Dancin’ has to wait, I’m doing some Fancy Lighting this weekend.

What do you mean, Swan Lake isn’t Manly?
