I've been watching the infomercial channels again. Sad but, they might be more entertaining to me than actual programming right now.

And did you know it is very difficult to take a picture of your own bicep curl? It's true.

Hilarious!

I like that your bicep curl involved The Body in Pain.

I just love you, your Royal Cogness.

I need an express order so that I can write this article. I'm ready for the assailants!

Hahahaha! This is awesome! I happen to love the P90X, so I would most certainly buy this product, too. You could do an Article Writing Insanity, too--like P90X lite, you know, it's only 8 weeks I think and no weights involved.

I often quote Tony Horton in my classes, too, when it comes to draft and peer review time: "Do your best, and forget the rest."

You're awesome.

PS, do you have a starting from scratch version? I'm not shaping up my diss at all. So maybe I just have to cycle through the D90X three or four times. Oddly, this has inspired me to restart the P90X today. Thanks for inspiration on all levels!

P.P.S.--I feel like a tool, btw, for seriously referencing the actual workout.
