Having an annoying day.

No disc. 

Discovered that StumbleUpon spammed my contact list even though I’m 95% sure that I told them not to.  That reflects very poorly on me.  I apologize if it affected anyone that might be reading this.

No definite details on women’s league.  Still.

I headed up to the mall, to work on the Decazzi scene.  I’m fairly sure that it’s probably about 100 degrees, but in the shade with the misters, it’s nicer than it would be in my apartment.  The only problem with this plan is that eventually, I will have to walk a mile in the quite hot.

It’s done, but I don’t like it.  He needs to come into the scene later I think.  I’m too blow-by-blow and I don’t need to be.  I need to plunk him down into the scene after the Cleansing’s been going on for a while.  Unfortunately, my laptop battery is wanning so I need to get home.

*sigh*

Meredith Corporation Mediaroom – News Releases:

What Women Do to Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle*

 Drink more water (80%)
 Eat more fruits and vegetables (70%)
 Read nutritional labels (49%)
 Avoid foods that are high in fat (47%)
 Make a conscious effort to lower calorie intake (44%)
 Watch my sugar intake (44%)
 Exercise at least three times a week (43%)

Found this via Starling Fitness and I have to agree that it’s a shame that women are only willing to do the easy things. Too bad research has debunked the health values of drinking all that water.

Another tidbit from the research:

Top 10 Health Concerns (across all generations)

1. Diet/weight control (56%)
2. Eating well/nutrition (36%)
3. Allergies (27%)
4. Aging process (26%)
5. Mental health (25%)
6. Arthritis (24%)
7. Cancer (23%)
8. Cardiovascular/heart health (20%)
9. Diabetes (18%)
10. Menopause (18%)

Is it really such a mystery that many problems with #1 can be solved with #2? I mean, really, is the outlook so warped that these ended up as two categories in this survey? I boggle.

Wonder if a similar survey has been done for men, and whether they’re more sensible.
