Thought that would get your attention.

I don't know about anyone else, but in my case there's a very strong correlation between regular exercise and a rise in the sex drive. Which can be pleasantly entertaining at times, and more than somewhat distracting at others, particularly when I'm trying to deal with Dallas traffic. And then there are the just plain weird times when I obsessively replay the scene in "The Pancake Batter Anomaly" episode of The Big Bang Theory where Penny is rubbing Vicks on a congested Sheldon's chest and wish that Penny had agreed to his (admittedly platonic -- well, hey, it's Sheldon) request for sponge baths.

Yeah, I never said I was normal. And Jim Parsons is one slender man. Nice voice, though, and cute, and it's cool to get confirmation that Sheldon is from Texas. But I digress.

So the hormones are making themselves known with all the walking, and judging from previous experience the effect will be even more pronounced when I start lifting weights again. This could get rather...interesting.

And in closing, my new favorite video. Okay, the doll fetishism is a bit weird, but thanks to the tatted Gerard Butler clone I think I just ovulated.

It's amazing to me how good my whole body feels after I walk for 40 minutes or so. I don't seem to get that same feeling when I'm walking with the geriatrics at the mall at the crack of dawn, but rather when I get a decent outside walk. The weather is still being a pain in the rear and not allowing me to get out there. I did walk one day this week, which was a miracle. Hopefully next week the weather will be where it should be.

We've been lucky in that the weather has been very nice here for the past couple of weeks, apart from last night's thunderstorms and hail, so it makes walking outside much easier. When the weather starts heating up, however, I'll probably revert to the treadmill.

Which cracks me up. Just as I'm getting ready to do some outside walking, you're about to retreat to the indoors. Wacky world we live in.

It's called "I live in Texas." :-) Hopefully I won't have to slink into my cave until early June or so, but from that point to mid-September, yeah, you don't want to go outside unless you have to.
