First of all, Best in the Land is back. I've recently adopted a new posting schedule (twice a week on btyb, and best in the land, once a week to my pickup newsletter at Make Her Chase You, and twice a week to Life Nomadic including Todd's posts).
I didn't want to post about it until I had a few new posts up there for people to check out. A few astute readers here figured it out already, though.
Also, I have a little site at Tynan.net to organize all of my sites in one place. If you already visit them there's really no point to going there. But... if you stop reading for some reason and want to see what I'm up to years later... that's the place.
Unless I can get tynan.com. The owner doesn't respond to my e-mails and once offered to sell it for $20k. No thanks. But I would pretty much kill to have the domain. I guess that establishes around how much I'd have to be paid to kill someone.
Tyler from Real Social Dynamics wrote a killer article today. After culling my huge RSS list down, his is the only blog that I still have on there. I still check a few others once in a while, but I never want to miss one of his articles. You'll see why I like this one - What's Fun?.
A big breakthrough for me tonight:
Todd and I were at Casa Vegetariana here in Panama. I speared a broccoli chunk and raised it to my mouth. As it got closer to my face I realized that there was a bug on it. It looked like a white mealworm.
SO I ATE IT!
As some people know, I'm really scared of bugs. It's totally irrational and stupid, but I cringe when I see them. Not all bugs, but there are some that I really don't like.
Meal worms are one of those types. Their little gross heads are freaky. BUT, I decided that there was no good reason not to eat it, so I did. I couldn't taste it because there was a lot of broccoli.
I think I'm going to start eating a lot of bugs. I mean... how cool would it be to train myself to eat bugs? Then if I'm ever in a jungle survival situation, I will flourish. What if I get on survivor? They'll all be complaining about low rice, and I'll be eating a bug feast and doing crossfit with tree trunks and rocks and stuff. YEAH!
Speaking of Crossfit, we've been doing a lot of running recently. One 10k and two 5ks. Today's 5k almost killed me... it was SO hot and humid out, even though we ran at night. My arms actually started going numb.
Now that I've started, I can't possibly imagine a situation where I would stop doing crossfit. It was signify such great failure to me.
This year is the year of money. I've said that before, but I haven't backed it up. This year I'm all action and... well, still some talk too.
We're only a month and a half into the year and I've worked more this year than I did all last year probably. More on that on Monday.
Next year will be the year of fame. I've decided that it would be totally unacceptable for me to not become a megastar. SO... once I get my money situation all settled this year, which I'm 100% confident I will do, I will dedicate the next year to becoming famous.
I have a lot of thoughts on this that are getting written down. I think I will focus on rap. The new rappers coming out right now are TERRIBLE and I think I can be good. It will take a lot of work, but I will spend 8-16 hours a day writing raps, freestyling, and strategizing.
Anyway... have a great weekend. The way I always discover it's the weekend is that my stocks don't seem to move at all. Then I realize they're not moving at all because the market isn't open on the weekends.
