Okay so this is the second post. I am the other half of this blogging duo right here. This is where you get a brief intro to who we are exactly, as Alysha has rudely neglected to do at all in the first post. Well, it may not be so much that she is rude as she is forgetful and it may be less polite on my part as it is an overwhelmingly nerdy desire to write an "origin story" for us like in a comic book. Whatever.

So, we are a couple who happily co-habitate in a small one bedroom basement apartment. With our 3 children. By children i mean cats. They are Meeshka, Milo and Banks and they are jerks. We've been a family for just over a year now. Basically, I courted (harrassed) Alysha over facebook with charming notes and poignant hand drawn portraits (of my penis) until it flourished into a full blown MSN relationship. Then one day (july 29th 2007 specifically) I showed up at her (now "our") apartment and, uh, moved in. Seriously thats basically how it happened.

Okay so it's not a a very super powered origin story. I mean, nobody was bitten by a radioactive spider or "belted by gamma rays" but love is still pretty awesome, right? And you should see the cats jump! Thats some superhuman action there, though i guess it's technically sub-human.

Ok, well you just wait till you hear the origin story of "THE CLAPPAH!!"

coming soon...

Activia Challenge Warning

So today I have started the Activia Challenge. It isn't by choice, the food bank gave us a whole bunch of yogurt that is 2 days past its due date. Dave was eating some and pointed out that it was that special pro-biotic crap, so I actually got a little excited at the thought of having a glowing yellow asterisk around my waist. Dave, rarely being the practical one, mentioned we will have to remodel the doorway, just like in the commercial. We'll cross that bridge when we reach it.

So he ate his yogurt was told me how magically delicious it was, so I was convinced. I had a couple myself. It IS pretty good. It tasted... I don't know... thicker than most yogurts, and I wasn't sure if that could be attributed to its age, or if its made that way to be more filling.

Not 10 minutes after I was done eating it (that process took merely seconds), I had a feeling. A feeling deep inside me. It was then that I realized the waist-asterisk in the commercial was a visualization technique used to show what cramps might look like, were they outside your body.

Bonus: Dave just ate 2 more cups, and wonders if your mouth is supposed to tingle like you have just eaten a whole box of nerds...

For those of you who don't know, those bio yogurts work on your intestines with good bacteria to... well... make you poop.

So they really do work. We are proof.

I just wonder now, who would WANT to take the Activia Pooping Challenge?
