In an attempt to force my lethargic self to exercise, I went out and bought a basketball last week. Basketball and football (soccer for those of you residing in North America) are the only sports that I’ve ever enjoyed playing and since I have a basketball area within 100 feet of my house it seemed like my ideal choice.
(Surely it's a sign of how lazy I’ve become that the walking distance to the activity area is the main factor in my choice. My self-created mixed UFC/Yoga sport didn't quite take off. Otherwise I would be 40 feet away from my backyard , where I would be exercising by punching opponents indiscriminately in the face while balancing on one leg, draped head to toe in neon yellow lycra and trying to find the path to higher consciousness. )
Anyway, back to the original point of this post. I will now be exercising more, which will add balance to my current lifestyle of sitting, eating and napping. So, if anyone here lives in Burlington, Ontario, you can wander by and either laugh, join in, or just stare in amazement at how a grown man can be so unskilled at the simple act of throwing a ball through a hoop.
I'm off to watch the best basketball documentary ever made - Space Jam.
As I was writing this entry, and this isn't really related to my exercise regime at all, I just received a delightful spam message via Skype:
"!!! HOT CHEATING WIVES FOR YOU !!!

Now, all I can think in response to this is; if it can use an email system, I think you should put it to far better uses than that.
Those exclamation marks do make the cheating wives!!!! sound enticing though.. hmm.
