Ripped from the Derrick Headlines

I did the quiz Derrick did:

You Are a Dash

Your life is fast paced and varied. You are realistic, down to earth, and very honest.
You're often busy doing something interesting, and what you do changes quickly.

You have many facets to your personality, and you connect them together well.
You have a ton of interests. While some of them are a bit offbeat, they all tie together well.

You friends rely on you to bring novelty and excitement to their lives.

(And while you're the most interesting person they know, they can't help feeling like they don't know you well.)

You excel in: Anything to do with money

You get along best with: the Exclamation Point

Aside from this. This morning in the mirror, I could see ribs. Yeah this might be alarming to some people, but rest assured that the front of my abdomen is still disgustingly squishy and flabby, and I still weigh in at 149lbs. It's just that I am getting to the weight where I lose all my backfat. The tummy and the upper thighs are usually the last to go (right after the boobs). I feel great, I haven't been this thin for about 5 years. I started logging my eating and exercise habits daily, and the first week or so were sort of rocky because I realised I will swing from eating something like 750 calories in a day to 2200 the next. Now I am making a concentrated effort to stay between 1200 and 1500 a day, and it is really working well for me.
Today I also biked super hard to work; I only shaved about 5 minutes off my usual time, but god I could feel it. My legs were all shakey. The inspiration for this? A dude on his fixed-gear. I am so competitive when I'm on the street biking: I like to be the person in front, and a dude on a fixed gear is good competition because those dudes can usually haul ass. They stand-start and often have a greater gear differential than I ride on even on my highest riding gear. Not only that but their bikes usually weigh like half as much as mine and being that they only have the one gear, and this is a hilly city, are generally in much better shape than I am.
Nonetheless, I creamed him. I was so speedy. Between red lights, I was probably getting up to 18 or 20mph. The best part was that he pretty much was going the same way I was, turning up Kearny and everything, so that kept pressing me on even when I tend to slow down a bit (on Kearny).
