Jeremy Rex

Here is a video I did at work during lunch. People seem to enjoy my T-rex impersonation. Personally I thought I was better than this.

Pictures of Dillan

If this works correctly this should show a bunch of thumbs of Dillan pics. You should hopefully be able to click them to see the original size. We'll see.

Benefits of having very large hands

(This is a blog that I copied off my myspace page. I wrote it originally on 10/17/2007)

At work today Jake pointed out that in an image we were using in one of our courses, there was a guy who had really big hands and small ears. This got me thinking of the benefits of having very large hands. If you have extremely large hands you can:

  1. Go by the nickname "Lard hands"

  2. Hold really large drinks

  3. Use your hands as paddles for kayaking or canoeing

  4. Swim the front crawl very fast

  5. Slap the crap out of someone

  6. Be an example of the old joke that if your hand is bigger than your face, you are retarded, have cancer, etc.

  7. Pretend that your hand size indicates the size (or lack thereof) or other bodyparts (such as feet).

  8. Shield yourself and your buddies from the hot summer sun (with only one hand)

  9. Play baseball without a glove

  10. Get a special dialing wand for phone use (no more fumbling because you hit 4 numbers with one finger)

  11. Show off your exceptionally large nostrils.

  12. Show off your sausage link fingers

  13. Poke both of someone's eyes out with your pinky

This isn't the picture we were looking at but it will help you visualize what I'm talking about.
Well, that is what we came up with on the spot. Feel free to comment with your own ideas and maybe I'll add them to the list.

Mornings Are Cold

So I decided to get my fat carcass out of bed this morning to run. I ran about 3 miles and it took me just over 30 minutes including a couple of breaks (about 4 min total). It was pretty cold this morning and I think I need to wear a hat next time I run in the cold. We haven't had any snow yet but I'd like to get back into decent shape (under 200 lbs and able to run 6-8 miles without feeling like I'm gonna die) soon. I have a ways to go. I also don't like how much of a muffin top I have (belly and love handles hanging over pants).
I have been feeling a bit chunky since Halloween. I have eaten way too much candy recently. I know that most of you people that read this (not that there are any) won't car about my fatness/fitness but it is something I'm trying to work on. So If you find some of my other blogs interesting but not these, don't feel bad about not reading them.

Picture Scavenger Hunt

So for those of you who don't know (and care), I am in the young men's presidency at church which means I get to hang out with unruly 12-18 year-olds. Last night we did a picture scavenger hunt. Basically you had to drive around and get a picture of different items or people all with a member of your team in the picture. It was actually a lot of fun. The boys had to go up to complete strangers and get their picture taken with them. Most of the people thought the boys were crazy and it was fun to watch them basically dare each other to talk to strangers.

Some of the best ones to watch were when they had to get their picture with someone over 75 years old. They were so scarred of offending the people but the man they asked, turned out to be 79 and seemed proud of it and was pretty spunky putting the boy in a headlock in the photo.

I translated so that they could get a picture of a hispanic man because he was wearing 2 articles of clothing that we needed someone to wear: sports team paraphernalia and shorts (in late october). He was pretty cool about it when I explained what we were doing. His name was Pedro and I'd vote for him any time. I'll have to post some pictures so you can see how much fun we had.

BTW, according to the greeters at wal-mart, they are not allowed to be in pictures. Apparently they are afraid that we would edit the picture and then write bad things about wal-mart (like we couldn't do that anyway). It got me thinking of why they had such a rule. I think it all comes down to this: Rules and especially warnings exist because of stupid people (we all fit that role sometimes, but some more often than others). Some examples of what I am talking about include warnings on "hot" coffee, warnings about smoking while filling up with gas, and all kinds of products that say not to point them in someone's eyes, or at someone in general. Weird about the wal-mart rule though.

What do you guys think?

Anyway, if you want to hear more about my Young Men/Scouts take a look at our blog. It's not much yet. I'm still trying to get the boys access so we can start a blogorama.

My new blog

This is my new blog. Woo hoo! Just in case you are wondering, "eglefino" is Spanish for Haddock (my last name). I have no idea what I'll use this for or how often I will post stuff. Martha and I already have a blog for Dillan: The Monkey Times. Check it out for Dillan's latest adventures. As for this blog, here is something for you to look at in the mean time.
