    My mom has one of these where you carefully set the bike on a stand and hope you don’t fall off. (We seem to have set it up right so far!) The Siamese twins are terrified of it. I guess it makes a weird sound.

    Ha! Georgia has been spying on me! When I use the exercise bike, I usually stream an episode of Dark Shadows. (Although the early episodes do not yet feature Barnabas.)

    Few know that the album’s original working title was “More Songs About Buildings, Food and Exercise Equipment.”

    Line drawing of a bike indeed! I’m not sure that I would fall off it, in my old age….but I could go for a good vampire show if I could walk on a treadmill.

    I ordered one of those bicycles. I tried to put it together but it had a few parts that were not on the assembly diagram and was missing a few parts that were, and the customer service people and I did not seem to have a language in common. It wouldn’t go back into the box in which it had arrived and I could never find a box in which it would fit so I couldn’t return it, so the partially assembled frame is now in the old coal bin along with the dead TV’s and computers that I can’t find a safe way to dispose of.

    I often get similar confused looks when I use my exercise bike but it is a good way to catch up on tv shows. Loving the chyron from Burt, very true

    I love a good Talking Heads shout out! Saw David Byrne’s touring production, American Utopia, last year and it was totally amazing!

    Hmmm… Wondering. Does Burt do the ‘text scroll’ for MacGyver? It has his sense of humour.

    The exercise bike I bought was broken when it arrived – it just sat in the corner and never did any exercise that I could see….

    I put a stationary bike on the patio, where the ferals hang out. There were about eight of them out there the first time I went to use it; about half skedaddled as soon as I came out, most of the rest stayed until I got on and started riding.

    Smokey (he of the missing tail and withered right ear) stayed to see what was going on and watched me ride for a little under ten minutes, at which point he decided that anything that was going to happen had already happened and fell sound asleep.

    I love Puck’s Talking Head’s reference. My wife has one of those bicycle gadgets, she usually watches MeTV or one of the Star Trek shows on Heroes and Icons as she puts in the mileage. Myself, I am still old school and usually go to a place called Lettuce Lake Park and put in a nice hour long walk a 2 or 3 times a week but when the daughter is home from FSU I go there with her every day as she loves that park about as much as her Dad does!

    Happy Sunday

    What things that you think are way overrated?

    Comedy films, mainstream Rap music, Facebook, chocolate, ice cream, pizza, tea (“my cup of tea” is not my cup of tea, I mean I don’t like that phrase), soccer, rewritten foreign music based on unreleased English-language music, some kinds of rock music especially metal music, most of the 2010s pop singers if not all, WWF. reality TV shows, superhero movies, cereals, and the list goes on and on.

    Thanks for reading.

    The Talking Heads comment hits the nail on the head. David Byrne’s lyrics hint at something but never say it. My bike to nowhere is actually a giant clothes hanger in disguise, it can hold a week or two worth of clothing!

    “Not right now Honey – I’m exercising!” Say it with enough conviction and virtue and you can squeeze out 45 uninterrupted minutes. Having a water bottle poised to throw also helps.

    It rather reminds me of my college years. God love him, my hubby is generally the most silent of men … except when I was trying to study for exams. I was preparing for a calculus final (NOT my best subject) and he was in a particularly chatty mood; the third time I slammed the text book shut and said “WHAT!?” he decided rather hurriedly that he really wanted to go to the movies.

    All of the cardio machines at my gym have TV screens attached, and cable. Being able to distract myself if the only thing that keeps me going. My 600 Pound Life is a great motivator but Dr Pimple Popper, American Pickers, or a good movie on Turner Classics also work (the 1000 Pound Sisters should work, but I find those two so irritating that I can’t watch).

    For PE at home over the summer, I used the treadmill. I’d take my mom’s Ipad and watch Youtube, and found myself copying the movements of Beat Saber players. honestly, it’s great exercise.

    Today is:

    Fight Procrastination Day —Eh, manyana … As Sun tze says, “Who cannot wait, cannot win.”

    Great Egg Toss Day —There is apparently a World Egg Tossing Federation that holds egg tossing events. Eggs are routinely tossed over 200 feet. Frankly, I think it’s not just their eggs that are scrambled … INCOMING!!!

    Read a Book Day —What, you can’t do this every day? Well, I suppose there are those—all too many of them—who are “literacy challenged.” Oddly, every dyslexic I’ve ever known, or know of, “read” voraciously, even though they had an excuse not to do so. There is an old saying: “The one who does not read has no advantage over the one who cannot read.”

    Coffee Ice Cream Day —It’s not bad, but I take my coffee dark and strong, so it’s a bit sweet for my taste. However, a scoop of coffee ice cream in a mug of cold coffee is delightful. I also like it smothered in chocolate sauce, which is more like chocolate mocha. For those who take cream and sugar, coffee ice cream must be heaven, or close too it.

    Pet Rock Day —As you might expect from a geologist, I do, indeed, have a pet rock. Yes, he’s been fixed and has a chip. He eats ten pounds of Ready-Mix a day. He occasionally collects moss, but sheds it every spring and fall. He is also a guard rock, and anyone who comes into the house or yard uninvited will get stoned.

    Back in the late 80s, a pre-Internet service called, I believe, “Livewire” was introduced in Rhode Island where you could call a phone number and ask things like “what places deliver pizza in Cranston?” The commercial starred a guy who paid someone to ride an exercise bike to generate electricity for the overhead light in his living room. The commercial ended with the light bulb breaking and the guy saying, “I think you can stop pedaling now.”

    So, to make a mask that I feel safe wearing to school, I sew two masks together and put a replaceable filter in a pocket of the inside mask. The inside mask is more functional while the outside one is more decorative. This means that I have a minimum of six layers and up to 8 layers of mask. I defy any virus to get through that! I also wear a clear plastic face shield over the mask and rubber gloves to keep my hands from touching things that 2000 other people have touched. A few days ago, I found a mask that looks like the lower half of a tabby’s face so last night, I sewed it to a filter mask and put it on. Reboot was sleeping beside me while I was sewing (and watching Dark Shadows) and woke up when I put away my sewing kit.

    I put on the mask and he started staring at me, so I made a kitten meow and he crawled up on my chest to look me in the nose. I tilted my head and he jumped back then he just had to sniff my “nose” and rub his head all over the mask to mark it as his. He has never done that with any other mask or indeed, shown the slightest interest in a mask. Weird kitty.

    Would rather have a real bike. Tried one of those bike excirsise machines once, it wasn’t the same. I’ve seen in commerdcial there’s a new type that includes a lean or tilt feature, not sure it would be the same either.
