Responsibility 199, what is it?

Responsibility 199 is a belief; I believe that to be healthy and to increase my longevity I need to weigh 199 pounds or less...
Responsibility 199 is a need; I need to reduce my weight, reduce my percentage of body fat, and the elevated threat of disease my present condition presents...
Responsibility 199 is a mission; I recognize that achieving 199 will be a challenge, perhaps the hardest I have ever undertaken...
Responsibility 199 is a commitment; I acknowledge that I must commit to action, commit to change, commit to myself and those I love to achieve this mission, to increase my longevity...
Responsibility 199 is ME.

Day 369 - Things That Make Me...

Things That Make Me... LAUGH
Smart Cars make me laugh. The concept, purpose of them, I get it. But they are just funny looking and I laugh everytime I see one.

Things That Make Me... Go HUH
Zhu Zhu Pets are a testimony to the power of ideas.
For Christmas shopping season 2009 we drove ourselves koo-koo looking for these things.
Someone had an idea, a battery operated colorful hamster that putts around and makes noise.
That someone is a gabagazillionaire now.

Things That Make Me... MMM
Buffalo Wings make me go MMM.  One of my temptations I have to be cautious around for sure.

Things That Make Me... COOL!
Eeyore is the coolest of the 100 Acre Woods gang, by far! He is my definition of Cool!
Yeah, he is glum on the outside, but on the inside; he is the hero of optimists everywhere!

Things That Make Me... BELIEVE

Look way up top there.
There you see my wife with the Stanley Cup.
One of them gives me reason to believe in victory.
One of them give me purpose behind my belief in victory.
Shouldn't be too hard to figure which does which.

My wife & I, without the Stanley Cup, are off this afternoon to check out some colleges in Indiana & Ohio with one of our sons.
We'll be back on Saturday.
Hope all enjoy the rest of their week!

Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!!


  1. Things that make me smile - YOU! Have a wonderful time Patrick!

  3. I LOVE the idea of Smart Cars, but it's just not happening with my bigfunfam! AND I worry about being crushed in an accident...

  6. Agreed. eeyore rocks.
    My littlest is in love with the Zhu Zhus, yes, ugh.

  7. hehe, the first time I saw one of those Smart cars, I thought it said "SNort" on the side of it and I about wet myself laughing so hard.

  8. Have fun college scouting! I still don't get Zhu zhu pets.

  9. I agree about the Zhu Zhu pets. I have no clue what they are for and what they do. I also feel the same way about smart cars! Have a good weekend!


  10. I love Smart cars but I agree, they are funny.
    Buffalo wings = danger, danger!

  12. Is that a Sioux hockey jersey that I see?? So fun to watch Toews win the Olympics then the Stanley Cup! I am a UND alum!

  13. You and Eeyore - awesome.
    He needs a tail, and you, my friend could use a poke!
    A loving gentle poke!
