I've been a Philadelphia for five years

fiveyears.jpg I started working at my current place of employment on April 14th, 2003 but I am pretty sure I moved to Philly the week before that (just to get a sense of the place. I hadn't been to Philadelphia more than twice before I picked everything up and moved here).

When I first moved from NYC to Philly I figured I'd be here for a couple of years and then move back to New York. That idea solidified when Elisa and I broke up, since she was the major reason I left my beloved Yonkers in the first place. Five years later and here I am. Why? A funny thing happened along the way: I started liking Philadelphia.

On occasion I would sally forth to NYC, and I couldn't wait to get back to Philly. What the heck was going on? I'm a New Yorker, damn it, I didn't want to like Philadelphia! Try as I might, Philadelphia grew on me.

Philadelphia is my home, and I can't imagine living anywhere else. My fantastic girlfriend lives here (and I live with her, so that makes it nice), lots of my friends are here, and most of my stuff is here!

I am willing to wager that 5 years from now I'll be writing a '10 years in Philadelphia' post. I can't wait.


scottgetsfiticon.gifWoah, it has been awhile since I've posted a Scott Gets Fit entry since December 12th, 2007! Interestingly, that's around the same time I started going out with Marisa. Mere coincidence? I think not!

Anyway, I'm back on the bandwagon and I weighed myself yesterday: 282.6 pounds, which is so close to my low of 281.1 (taking into account I stopped going to the gym and ate whatever the heck I wanted for the last few months this is good. I was probably about 297 a month ago. Hurrah for the gym!).

Stay tuned for more Scott Gets Fits posts, because darn it losing weight is fun!

Newly Cohabitating: Episode 2

Literally 2 or 3 people said our last Newly Cohabitating episode was entertaining, so we hauled out the USB microphone and recorded another one. Episode 2 covers the first day of our 'officially' living together (since I don't have another apartment anymore), desk cleaning, and the many quirks of Marisa.

Oh, and since we are having fun with this, expect us to launch yet another blog with a feed you can subscribe to in iTunes (or whatever you like).
