The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Any Eastern PA college students not going home for Thanksgiving

    I'm sure most of you are or have friends places to go. But if you're not and want to spend Thanksgiving with a family (kids are 9 and 13, not TOO scary) and a dog, PM me. We got a guest bedroom and plenty of floor. We're pretty good cooks and a pretty laid back family.

    Same goes for any non-college student singles who are in the area. Western Philadelphia suburbs.

    I spent one miserable Thanksgiving by myself one year and ate in a Denny's. Made an indelible impression on me, I guess.

    Awesome gesture.

    I'd be over there in an instant to get away from the mental institution I currently reside in, but they might get suspicious.

    We eat russian food for thanksgiving, and it lasts half an hour. Happy happy family, release the doves.

    I am impressed JC...if I was close to PA I would definitely take you up on that offer. I have spent 5 thanksgivings by myself so far. First one I wound up drinking myself unconcious and woke up in the brigs drunk tank. They got progressively worse.

    Dude, Collins, what part of Philly? I just noticed your location.

    I used to live in the northeast, where Bustleton crosses Haldeman. Are you in the center, or suburbia?

    Suburbia. Phoenixville, to be exact. I'm about 2 miles off the Oaks exit on Route 422.

    Hey, G-B, you're welcome! Just get a plane ticket. Oh, and you can't sit naked by the phone while you're here. Sorry. We could go shooting, though!

    Edit: Well, actually, I guess we live in Upper Providence. Our mail is handled out of Phoenixville.

    Kimpy, you and Jane are not quite clear on the concept. Your are SUPPOSED to be with your family on Thanksgiving. Even if they are weird and frustrating, you should be thankful you have them. If you are "stuck with family" you are NOT invited.

    If you feel stuck, go see My Big Fat Greek Wedding. You'll have a whole new appreciation for weird family.

    that's very cool JC.

    I never go home for thanksgiving, typically because it's the first time in months i get a few days off in a row, and i use it for catch up time. I hate travleign durign the holidays.


    anyways, usually someone in my circle holds a potluck thanksgiving feast for the various strays we know. It always turns out to be a fun time. last year it didn't happen tho. i dunno what this years plan is. i'm jsut lookign forward to 4 daYS OFF IN A ROW.

    That was totally cool, JC. I used to invite all my homeless pals over for Thanksgiving at my apartment when I was in university...we'd cook a big turkey, drink beer, and watch football all day

    I'll be spending T-day at my Grandma's in eastern PA though...the coal region, around Frackville/Hazelton area so I'll wave to y'all
