Deebra or Zonkey?

I can’t get enough of this stuff:

It’s male. But what is it? A zonkey? A deebra? That’s the debate in Barbados since a zebra gave birth to a foal sired by a donkey.

Alex was born April 21, a milk-chocolate brown creature with the black stripes of a zebra on his ears and legs. His face looks more like a horse, with a distinctive black “V” patch on the forehead.

Yourself FitnessAs a belated V-Day gift, Kenny got me the most unique XBox game I’ve seen so far – Yourself Fitness. Yes, I agree, the title is lame, but this game is amazing. It’s essentially a digital personal trainer, effectively replacing every other workout tape anyone would ever need (and for some of these reviewers on Amazon, also eliminating the need for a gym membership). Not bad for $35!

Maya, the digital personal trainer, will tailor a workout for you based on the results of a fitness evaluation, your personal preferences, and feedback you provide when she “checks up on you” during a workout. You can choose what kind of music you want in the background while you work out, and you can choose among settings for your workout (the two provided initially are the “Empress’ Dojo” and an urban gym-like setting; you can also unlock others as you progress).

The one mixed blessing of having a digital personal trainer is that she never gets tired: after my second workout with Maya, I had a hard time walking for almost an entire day.

I Don’t Know Why You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

Hey kids, welcome to the new blog. Yes, it’s just the WordPress boilerplate for now, but I figured I’d rather have something functional right away, and I’ll make it pretty later (maybe this weekend?)

In case you’re wondering, the old site is toast, due to a hard drive crash (apparently I was supposed to make my own backups?) I have since switched my web hosting provider. I was able to recover my files, but the database is kaput; thanks to Google’s massive cache, I think I have recovered almost all of the old posts, but I haven’t decided what to do with them yet. Some of them may surface here at some point.
