Antony & The Johnsons - “The Lake”
I have said it here, and I will say it again, something does not smell right.
My guess that either the husband was abusing the wife, or she finally wised up and figured out that the honeymoon suit that the husdaband had booked in Jamaica was not for her.

Due to the rainy weather (finally), most of the day was spent indoors. After a bomb egg sandwich (thank you very much) I went to for my final check of my uncle's dog Blade which I was checking in several times over the weekend while him and his family were away at Jellystone Park.
I got home just in time to catch the better end of a mozzarella, basil, tomato and onion garden salad, topped of with a half of twice backed potato.
That meal put me right to sleep, but then I got the urge to see the new film, Ocean's 13 so since I had no other obligations, I hopped in my car and traveled across the Ohio river to Newport On The Levee where I sat down with my cookie and jumbo sized soft drink just before the opening credits.
The night was not over yet...
After a long run through the University of Cincinnati campus, where the eye candy was out in full force (I have got to learn how to play soccer...lol) I ventured to the new downtown restaurant Boi Na Braza for one of the best meals that I have had in this city.
All in all, I had a great Sunday.

Friday, a few friends and I managed to lurk out tin the early evening and catch (no pun intended) a Cincinnati Reds baseball game. Our home team had not been doing so hot (26 wins and 41 losses) but the team that they were playing were equally as bad if not worse (24 wins and 42 losses) so I thought that we could at least see the former Red Stockings kick some ass.
By the end of the 7th inning, my hopes and dreams were dashed. We did not even stay to see the end of the game. I guess I am not just a fairy, but also a fair weather fan. My friends and I decided to drown our sorrows with a trip to SimonSays followed by a jaunt to the nearby Subway.
Saturday was a bit more enjoyable. Every year I organize our neighborhood's Spring Fling/Information Fair. At this event, our community council partners with the local church's annual block party and invites community organizations to come and set up activity booths for the children of the neighborhood. This was the children can have some fun while learning about all of the free fun stuff they can do for the summer.
I have to say it was a blast, and these pictures prove it!

Kicking off at Burnett Woods with a rally at 11 am and immediately followed by its participants marching a few miles down the hill and across the highway (via a bridge) to Hoffner Park in neighboring Northside where there was an whole host of performers and booths.
And the band kept marching on (courtesy of CinWeekly)
My roommate and I wanted to Rollerblade in the parade but due to use not getting out of the door until about 1:30pm (we thought that the parade would begin at 1 pm) we decided to just drive to Hoffner Park and greet the participants as they sauteed down the street into the park.
Of course, in true diva style, that are tardiness was in no comparison to that of the parade.
It was so exciting to see so many "family" members in one place. It was sort of like watching Super Friends...so many super heroes in one place, using their different powers together for the fight for freedom. In this case it was the power of seduction.
All throughout the day, I was so distracted that I forgot to take pictures (I know right). I did manage to snap a few pics here.
My roommate makes out with cow-like dog. Yes that is him in drag and on roller blades.
In the back patio of Bronze Bar....I love what they did with the place.
Of course, the worst pic I have taken in several years was taken by a CinWeekly photographer...Man I hope this does not make it into this weeks print version.

So here is the beginning of my 6 pack...lol It looks more like a 40oz of Colt 45.
So in the past week, I have moved my efforts from simply working out to include working on my diet as well. I have been trying to only eat proportionate meals and stop eating when I am full. I tell you what, stopping eating has been the hardest thing that I have had to do in this entire wight lost program. I was raised to eat all the food on my plate and to eat any chance that I could. I celebrated my first day of my new diet by eating lunch at a nice Mexican restaurant near my new job and there is what I had:
As you can see, I left half of the meal due to me being full...I guess I am starting out on the right track...lets see how long this will last. I saw the following YouTube vid on one of my favorite blogs and gave me a bit more satisfaction with eating.
Wish me luck!
