Out of Pocket...Sort Of.

It has been a few weeks since I updated, you, my loyal reader, with the exploits of Doc. Or as I am sometimes known, "The Other Doc". It all depends on who I am with when screen names are mentioned. But, let this serve as a quick update.

I have been spending the last few weeks getting in shape for an event I am taking part in. No, I am not speaking of the Half Marathon or anything of that nature. No, this is much much bigger than that. But it is something that did require I take my physical health seriously for a change. So, after three and a half weeks, I am happy to report that I have successfully lost (and kept off), 2 pounds, 4 ounces. I have also reduced my waist line by nearly 1/32 of an inch. I know. I know. You're asking, what is his secret? I am not saying.

But I am loving life and feeling good. And that, is a good thing.

So what is this event? Oh, I am a proud member of Team Piranha in the new Survivor: Passamaquoddy! We're taking on Team Sashimi. "Sashimi! It's whats for breakfast." I thought I would share my bio as it posted on Doc Terminus' blog, just to keep you up to date. But really visit Passamaquoddy and read about all the participants and be sure to follow all of our adventures in the weeks to come. You'll be glad you did.

But my Survivor biography...

"A little about me, uh? Well, let me see. I have been in P’quoddy for a little over a year now. You can usually find me at the back table over at Sand Dollar Ella’s enjoying, well, you know, and thinking about how I should write something. I don’t get ‘round to it as often as I should, but when I do, it is usually something very poignant. That is the right way to spell poignant isn’t it? I am happy to be selected for the first Survivor: Passamaquoddy. Do I expect to win? Not really. Hey, just like the lottery, you got to play to win, and I’ll probably be at my usual table thinking about it and end up missing the challenge. But when I show up, I will probably do something very poignant. Just late. But should I win, it will be based on these two qualities: perseverance. I will persevere through anything, like the time I ate my weight in snow crab legs over at Ella’s. Sure, I was sick for two days afterwards, but I stuck to it. Just like the time I refused to leave the “it’s a small fin” attraction when it broke down and I was stuck there with this little clown fish singing “it’s a small fin after all” over and over and over. Anyone else would have jumped ship and made for the exit. No, not me. I stuck it out. So, if I win, it will be based on that. That, and the fact that I don’t mind wearing the same T-shirt for several episodes if necessary as long as it is a cool T-shirt.

"Oh, and the second quality? I usually write something very poignant.

"Team Piranha: We Got Teeth and We’re Not Afraid To Use ‘Em."

So, there you are. I am lovin' life in P'quoddy for a while my friends. Oh, and to give credit where credit is due, I swiped the graphic from the Passamaquoddy blog.
