    15,000 fans, $345,000 dollars raised for a charity. I guess I can be happy with the Bill's playoff story ending.

I suspected it was to gauge where we were, so I wasn't concerned with completing all of the tasks but I was going to get as far as I could go on the pushups. I did 25 before I hit my first wall. Then I was doing them in shorts bursts of five followed by small breaks, then I would get to four before my arms couldn't push me up anymore, then three. I made it to 62 standard pushups before I simply couldn't do anymore. I dropped down to my knees and started doing short bursts in modified pushups. It hurt like heck but I made it to 150. I didn't think I would get back up for the last one. My arms almost collapsed beneath me but my husband was next to me, cheering me on so I just kind of growled and finally straightened my arms. I even had enough time to get ten sit ups in before the time ran out. I am kind of annoyed, though, because all this time, I thought my limit was a lot lower.

    My arms hurt just thinking about it.

    I had to turn down the thermostat in my room because it is too warm.(some rooms have electric.)

    Though I think there are stories that end with "and the neighbors all knew him as a quiet man" that start like this.
    So somebody has articulated a concept two days ago that I can't unsee now.

    That following internet news nowadays is a less healthy life style choice than following internet porn.

    I have to agree completely.
