11/23 - 45m walk -- COCT grip work 4x5 + timed hold -- P90X+ D5 Kenpo Cardio + [modified w/Muay Thai technique - a good "cardio combat" workout but will need to modify/supplement/replace with Bas Rutten's MMA Workout for practicality/muscle memory/etc. to eliminate some of the negatives in the 'traditional' art adapted for the workout.]

11/22 - 30m walk -- P90X+ D4 - Yoga X, still the most difficult, for me, of the P90X workouts.  Constant modifications & breaks, 90m of nothing but ego crushing, for good & ill -- COCT grip 4x5 + timed hold -- wg pushup 35/2x10, cg pushup 15/5

Indulge your Turkey Day Celebrations in the traditional ways...

...go next door and visit with your neighbors. Drop off some smallpox infected blankets, wait for them to die, move in and take all their stuff. It is the way of our ancestors.

Alternatively, take in & absorb the words of wisdom of Joss Whedon's BTVS:
Spike: I just can't take all this mamby-pamby boo-hooing about the bloody Indians.
Willow: Uh, the preferred term is...
Spike: You won. All right? You came in and you killed them and you took their land. That's what conquering nations do. It's what Caesar did, and he's not goin' around saying, "I came, I conquered, I felt really bad about it." The history of the world is not people making friends. You had better weapons, and you massacred them. End of story.


11/21 - 30m treadmill walk -- COCT 3x5 + timed hold x1 -- P90X+ D3 - Total Body+

Hip-hop used to be better...

...of course, we can only speak generally about such things.

True enough, but still...

...when your dreams from last night feature the deceased Ossie Davis retiring during the series finales of Parks and Recreation & Community -- and the cast of Happy Days & Laverne and Shirley helping you change your bicycle tire in Japan while seeing some of your old elementary school students -- it seems worth noting.

I reward you for having read this far, thusly:

Derren Brown's "Fear and Faith" specials are fascinating/entertaining.

On the placebo effect.

Inducing a religious experience in an atheist.
