Show me the love

Ok, this is my second day of the blog. I’m ready for the swarm of readers. Where are all the readers? I thought I’d be famous by now.

I guess I need to put something interesting or revealing. Here’s something I realized about myself the other day. Much of what I do in life is motivated either by indulgence or guilt. They are the yin and yang of my actions.  You know, drink too much coffee/beer, eat crappy food, spend too much money (such as on a new racquet) and goof off, then feel guilty and compensate by working hard, eating better (for a meal or two), being cheap, etc. I think a lot of Americans feel the same way. We are constantly prodded through advertising and societal pressure to indulge, and then chastised for being broke, fat, sick, and so on.  There’s a magazine that’s usually in the breakroom at work called “Women’s World” and I always get a kick out of it because half the articles are about great new desserts and the other half are about how to lose weight.
