Naked Thursday Thoughts

I went to bed very early last night.  Apparently I was more tired than I realized.  After a couple episodes of Beverly Hills 90210, I crashed at 10:00 pm.  Normally I hit the sack somewhere between 1-2:00 am.  So look out world, I’m hella well rested today… yet unshaven.  Ways you can tell I’ve had too much sleep include, but aren’t limited to:

  • I make up my own language and try to convince my wife I still have to brush my teeth using said fake language.  It’s amazing what facial expressions and intonation can accomplish.
  • there are ten days left until Ironman Canada.
  • last night I met some other neighbors of ours.  Basically all I can remember about them is the following: their daughter’s middle name is Sugar, they want to steal my apples, and they voted to ban car alarms from their block.  I can’t recall the parents names.
  • my mom gets back in town tonight.  She spent two weeks in Georgia visiting my two brothers who reside there.  I’m sure I will hear all about my nephew Kincade Maximus.  (Is Sugar or Maximus a better middle name?)
  • one of these days I will revive the Fully Klothed Thursday posts I started about a year ago.
  • when the Ironman is complete I will resuscitate my French Word of the Day blog, adding audio files, which has been on life support for over a year.
  • I create random blog posts that have zero direction and I’m ultra fidgetty in my work chair.  Is it too soon for a swim?
  • they still sell Whoopi Cushions.  I spied about eight of them in my local grocery store.  They were located in the cold cereal aisle (kids) selling for $2.00.  I resisted.
  • NEW: Four Three Nine.  Four hundred thirty-nine.  Quatre cent trente-neuf!  439.  No matter how you say it, my race number has finally been assigned for Ironman.  Fahrenheit 439!

Alright, that’s all I can think of for right now.  Enjoy yourselves on this Thursday (or Friday) wherever you might be! 


IRONMAN trivia #16/25: athletes are NOT allowed to go shirtless during the Ironman.  You must cover your torso during the bike ride and the run portions of the race.  It takes all the fun out of it since I was planning on wearing my pink Speedo for the entire race.  Glow sticks are distributed to all athletes on the course as sunset approaches.  It’s very eerie to see runner emerge with a green illuminated halo around their neck.

    Sugar, huh? That is just weird.

  2. Stephanie says:

    Please start raving once you get your glow stick. And then capture it on video.

  3. Curare_Z says:

    A well-rested night? What’s that?
    At any rate, FKT is the best idea I have seen in a long time. I LOVE it. Andyoure previous FKT posts were priceless.

  4. egan says:

    Stephanie – with any luck, I will not be on the course as sunset approaches. Who knows though. It’s starting to get dark around 8:30pm so they probably start handing them out around 8:00pm. I will rave though because I’m that dedicated to you and readers of my blog.

  5. egan says:

    Curare_Z – yes, I will get back to posting FKT stuff in the very near future. Everything in my life has been on a holding plan until after you know what.

  6. egan says:

    Peek – I don’t know how I missed your comment. Yes, Sugar is more a term of endearment. They must be using the Paltrow book of baby names.

  7. mckay says:

    HA! i saw the exact same items in the cereal item the other day. it would’ve been a sure fire hit with my four year old son, yet i wisely resisted, too.
    good luck on the upcoming ironman. i can’t wait to hear how you do!!

  8. egan says:

    McKay – welcome to my blog. You aren’t related to Dylan from 90210 are you? Did Whoopi Cushions ever really work all that well though? Who didn’t notice the fart pillow under their jacket? The Fart Machine II is so much better. Thanks for the well wishes. I’m not nervous yet.

  9. Trick says:

    I had a great nights sleep last night as well. First time in quite a while.
    I am getting so excited for Ironman Canada….is that just weird???

  10. egan says:

    Trick – I’m so happy to hear you got a good night’s sleep. It’s important for me to be well rested over the next week. Hey, you’re excited? Am I building ample hype about this little Ironman? Maybe it can be like the Super Bowl or something. I will begin a countdown next week. It’s not weird at all Trick.

  11. I was going to ask if you had anything to do with this, but then I noted the size of the garment.
    Where is this man, why was he allowed to purchase it, and how did he become separated from it? I think Ron Jeremy is involved.

  12. Phats says:

    Is beverly hills 90210 not the greatest show ever?! it’s first season is released in nov on dvd. Still have a crush on kelly.
    Hmm Kincade? Maximus? both very interesting, but i’d rather have those names then sugar.
    have a good one

  13. egan says:

    Ubie – is it scarier that I know who Ron Jeremy is or that I consider Speedo swimwear to be haute couture?
    Phats – Kelly? Really? I’ve never really found Kelly Taylor all that appealing. You know the Noxzema chick, the one Dylan marries? She’s pretty. I think my favorite of all the 90210 girls is Janet, Steve Sanders’ wife. She’s the shit.

  14. Phats says:

    Yes I remember Janet she was attractive, but I had it bad for Kelly! Noxzema girl was pretty.
    I answered your question, so you better go by and read it cuz i took so much time to answer it

  15. Jennifer says:

    Maximus makes Sugar look minimus. Maximus is the best middle name EVER.
    The ban on shirtless torsos is a bit depressing. Why take all the fun out of it for the spectators?

  16. Phats says:

    I was reading your Ironman trivia today, you’ll look like Monty Burns, on the episode where he was lit green and everyone in springfield that he was an alien haha

  17. Pants says:

    Wanna meet at the Peach Pit for a post work snack?

  18. egan says:

    Phats – I read your answer and very impressed with her abilities. I’m sad that you would cry if a woman beat you at that age. You do know most female athletes have better technique than their male counterparts.
    Jennifer – you’ve seen the movie Gladiator right? That’s the reason for my nephew’s name. I’m going to name our future son Bart Soda Pop Lessinges. Hey, you raise a good point about the torsos. Trust me though, there’s plenty of eye candy for everyone at an Ironman event, plenty!
    Phats – is that a Simpsons reference?
    Pants – only if you’re bringing Ray Pruit.

  19. ChickyBabe says:

    Sugar? Eww… And bring on the French Word of the Day! We could have fun with that. maybe make up some words with facial expressions and intonation! 😛

  20. egan says:

    ChickyBabe – yes, Sugar. I didn’t get it and wasn’t able to remember anything they said after that. I was trying to focus too hard on not laughing. It sucked. French Word of the Day is nearly back. I like your thinking.

  21. Phats says:

    Egan why yes it is, the best show ever made! 🙂
    I am glad you got that right, we can continue to be blog buddy’s now

  22. egan says:

    Phats – I know there are lots of people who agree with you. I do love the show, but didn’t watch it all that often. I should set up a Season’s Pass on TiVo. Did that show make Fox or was it 21 Jump Street or are you too young to answer that?

  23. Jennifer says:

    I hated Johnny Depp in Jump Street. But damn if he didn’t grow up, but fine. I’m not sure I’d really need to see his scrawny torso in an Ironman event, however. A funky hair cut and an oddly articulated accent would be enough, I think.

  24. sprizee says:

    Damn it. It’s still Thursday where I am. Where exactly do I need to be for it to be Friday?
    Get your map on.

  25. egan says:

    Jennifer – I think you can watch the Ironman live on tv. You get Canadian tv channels in your neck of the woods? Can you believe that swashbuckling pirate and the geeky cop on Fox are the same people? I’m working on the accent.

  26. egan says:

    Sprizee – on Friday? You need to be downtown with a present in hand. 5th and Seneca I think.

  27. Phats says:

    What the hell is 21 Jump street? haha!
    Hmm some might argue Married with Children made fox. Certainly the simpsons, jumpstreet,90210, and melrose helped though.

  28. egan says:

    Phats – 90210? Hello!

  29. Phats says:

    I told you I love 90210! Always have and not embarrassed to admit it. I can’t wait til Nov when it’s released on DVD

  30. logo™ says:

    Sheesh, no naked Thursday, no naked torsos, its discrimination, man!
    And Sugar?? What, are they hoping she’ll grow up to be a stripper? WTF??

  31. celeste says:

    439 sounds like a fantastic number! (much better than 90210 😉

  32. egan says:

    Phats – don’t you have TiVo? Why would you need to buy the dvds then? They run 90210 on the Soap Network three times a day.
    Logo – talk about discrimination… I touched on that issue in my most recent post. You think hippie parents would want their daughter to be a stripper? I doubt it.
    Celeste – 439 is a great number. I’m going to own that puppy like a tattoo.

  33. Phats says:

    I don’t get soapnet! Nor do I have TIVO, I am a cheap bastard my friend.
    Besides I want the dvd set! I have tons of TV shows on DVD

  34. Do you think she’s doomed to grow up to be a dentist with that name?
    Maximus is a way better name. Especially for a boy. At least Whatever Sugar is a girl. I await your Fully Klothed Thursdays with bated breath.

  35. egan says:

    Phats – a reality tv freak like yourself doesn’t have TiVo? I’m shocked. Koko is also shocked. Don’t let down Koko. DVDs are old school aren’t they?
    Candace – you’re so eager for the Fully Klothed Thursdays aren’t you? I’m sure you’re hoping one day I slip and post some naked crap. Ha, keep posted. She may be doomed to many things, but sugary sweet won’t be one of them. Has the weather finally changed?

  36. jenny says:

    You can’t go shirtless? That’s an absolute outrage! I’d boycott the event altogether. I mean… what if you just wore pasties? Would that be okay?
