With Billy's encouragement and energy, now I *am* a blowfish! :)
I can make something up, but my real story isn't too inspirational. I feel and look better, but it's not like I was some sort of outcast before I found Tae Bo. I can't wait to see the testimonials though. I have a feeling that he's going to replace Tony Robbins as the premier inspirational voice on TV.

Sorry Pamie, but I'm not sure I want to be in the infomercial. It's not that I'm embarassed about my Tae-Bo-ing; hell, I tell everyone about it anyway. But have you seen the one guy in the infomercial? The guy who looks like he is single-handedly trying to bring back the Shemp hairstyle? Well, I know what would happen. I'd show up to film the commercial and I'd be all psyched that I'd be able to talk to the girl with the tattoo on her hip, then I would find out that she's not even going to be in this one. Then they'd say, "OK, let's have all of the ladies first. Guys, you can just hang out here." Then I'm sitting there with the human oil-spill trying to make with the conversation for however long it takes for the 15 women to say how wonderful Billy is, and all I can think of to say is "No really, you're trying to make yourself look like that? Cause it takes effort, you know. I mean, anyone could simply neglect their hair and end up looking like a slob, but you take the time and money to bring greasy kid's stuff to a new level." By the way, tell E I said happy birthday. Since I've been sentenced to the Dallas gulag I haven't had a chance to see anybody.

okay here's a "success" story:
i went home to see my dad for father's day and we were hanging out at our neighbors house. they have tae bo videos and i was like "yeah yeah i can do tae bo!" and i proceeded to basically make fun of the whole tae bo thing (and, subsequently those of you who do it, but it wasn't in a mean way).
well, billy and pamie and the rest of you certainly exacted your revenge. i was doing those little fisty punchy things "double time" and, uncoordinated as i am, pretty much punched myself in the fist with my other fist.
we thought i broke my finger but it was just jammed. it's a lovely shade of purple now. all because i was jealous of you tae bo-ers with your lunges and kicks and shit... i think i'm gonna rent them and dub copies of all the videos. that, or go have a brownie.

Okay, Pamie, I'm blaming you. I was at Target today and I caved like the spineless worm that I am. I did the instructional video today, and I wound up kicking my poor puppy in the throat. If the dog dies, I'm blaming you and Billy!
And I just want to know this: does BILLY do the workout with a puppy jumping at him and trying to bite him on the ass? Does BILLY do the stretches with a dog licking his calves? Is anyone trying to untie Billy's shoe laces in between kicks?
I didn't think so.
This will probably be my journal entry tomorrow, so I'll stop now.
