I say it a lot and, if you're sick of hearing it, I apologize in advance but I LOVE MY FITBIT!

I got an email from Comcast the other day letting me know that they were upgrading my Internet service free of charge. Apparently, they've got much faster speeds available and will give it to me.
Today, I got really frustrated with Facebook. I was pissed that they would keep pushing Message notifications thru on the app when I can't use said app to view them.
Marty is making a liar of me. Yesterday, he called me "speed demon" regarding my blog posting rate of late. I told him it was because I was forgoing Snippet Wednesdays in favor of individual posts for topics so that I could get myself back up above a 50% posting rate this month (to that point, I'd only posted four times in 19 days). So what am I doing today? Posting a Snippet Wednesday. It wasn't supposed to be. But it has become one. Oy.
I got a letter in the mail last week letting me know that my Sirius/XM radio was being reactivated for two weeks for free starting today and running through Monday, August 8.
There were a lot of great and perfectly logical guesses on last week's Macro Monday post. Kiwi. Avocado. Lime... all made perfect sense.
I was supposed to attend an outdoor event for work yesterday. Basically just to help promote a new initiative at my job. Honestly, the details are unnecessary here.
Yesterday was one of goodbyes in our family. No, nobody died, don't worry. Just fare-thee-wells to departing friends.
Nathan wanted nothing to do with going to bed last night. In fact, he soooo wanted to stay awake that he knew it was in his best interests to avoid me.
Last night, my buddy Eric and I went to a concert at the Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin. Actually, a park right outside the casino proper. Opening was a band known as The Orchestra, comprised of former members of Electric Light Orchestra (a name held legally by former member Jeff Lynne). Headlining was the classic metal band Deep Purple.
This past weekend, Katie and I finally got around to watching The LEGO Movie.
[collective gasp from all of you]
A little more than a week ago, actor and comedian Robin Williams was found dead in his home of an apparent suicide. The world collectively gasped.
I had a really fantastic idea for a Macro Monday picture last week that just didn't turn out looking like anything identifiable. It was going to be an egg in honor of the life of Robin Williams (Mork came from Ork in an egg-shaped spaceship). Alas, the surface of an egg is too perfect to show off anything that would help give it away.
Hey all. Sorry this is going up a bit late. Macro Monday took a bit of a backseat to all the news about Robin Williams. I grew up to the dude's comedy. He was a big part of my childhood and teen years. I make no excuses.
R.I.P. Mr. Williams.
Last night, Katie and I watched the movie Divergent. It was my first time seeing it and Katie's third as she saw it with the SiL twice in theaters.
Before I get into Macro Monday, I need some help from those of you who subscribe to this blog via RSS feed (if you don't know what an RSS feed is, please don't ask). When you see Macro Monday posts, as well as any post lately with photo embeds from Flickr, does it seem like my post feed is stunted? Like all the text and photos aren't showing in the feed? Please let me know in a comment if you see this phenomenon and what you're using as an RSS feed reader/aggregator. Thanks!
Didn't I just write my June recap, like, yesterday? Another month can't have passed already, can it? I guess it can. Wistfully, here is my 2014 Goals recap for the month of June.
