Indeed, so close, that I've apparently managed to keep things even from myself. For example, I've only recently discovered that somehow in the last few years, I've managed to gain about 25 pounds. See, in my delusional mind, I was still the grungy frontman for Ithaca's greatest band, Slowburn (pictured in the top left). Not that I was Brad Pitt, but let's just say I was someone Daniel O'Brien wouldn't kick out of bed. But as revealed by my entry in YouTube 's recent video contest, I've become something of a tubby, little bastard. And not all the bad lighting, poor sound, or continuity errors in the world can change that. Anyway, I realize now my contest entry might be disqualified because it refers to a public figure which apparently YouTube says you can't do. (Although last year's second place winner had a George Bush impersonator in it?) In any event, if it somehow makes it into the top 20, people will be asked to vote on it, but let's not worry about that yet. Just enjoy the way I've let myself go and hopefully you'll like some of the jokes too.
I'm also using this somewhat unorthodox blog post to announce that I bought an eliptical yesterday and I intend to chronicle my weight loss. You, dear Cracked Blog readers, are truly blessed.
