An Epic Beginning to Unfold

My knee feels great when I sit on the couch.

In fact, I think I'll be ready for an ultra-couch sitting competition before I'll be ready for an ultra-run. Right now my stamina is at about three consecutive movies -- but it's getting better by the day. Just this past Monday I was only able to sit down for one movie before I had to get up and take a break. By Sunday I'm hoping to complete a solo, non-stop Jamie Lee Curtis ultra-movie marathon. Six, maybe even SEVEN in a row. I've done as many as six Jamie Lee Curtis movies over the course of two days, but never in one continuous sitting. I know this is a lofty goal, but when I do something I like to do it ultraly.

I never thought a rest week would be so intense.

So, any favorite Jamie Lee Curtis movies I MUST make part of my epic adventure?

Keep sitting!



  1. Have you sent off for the Tiger Tail that Bob turned me onto? It is a must have. I was able to work out knots I did not even know I had until I started rolling.

    Do it now before it is too late to turn back. Poor Sadie. I am sure she is pissed about this!!

  2. Hang in there bro. Being an ulra couch potato isn't all that bad! The trails will be excited to see ya back in top form.

  3. Something tells me that Sadie is going to have a thing or two to say about this. I have a feeling your tv might get chewed up.

    True Lies is a must. Hottest dancing 40-something ever!

  4. Your parents taught you so well! If you are going to do something, by Jove, do it right! You are a machine and I can't wait to hear all about how the ultra screening went on Monday :)

  5. I've never heard of anyone having a Jamie Lee Curtis fest before. At our house, it runs more to Lord of the Rings fest, or when the boys were younger a Star Trek fest or Star Wars fest. True Lies is the only JLC movie I can even think of - and I only remembered it because it is mentioned above!

    Good luck on your goals!

  6. Chad is right, True Lies homie!! She puts most 18 y.os to shame in that movie. Damn her! I need to get a hold of her plastic surgeon LOL

    I feel your pain, this rest thing S-U-C-K-S!! I agree with Robin, ole Bob has some good tricks up his sleeve. That book he suggested (the trigger point therapy one) is also pretty good. Making the ole *cough* *cough* (I will edit for Dad :P) feel better :-)

  7. "...but when I do something I like to do it ultraly."

    EVERYTHING?? hehehe

    I can't think of many Jamie Lee Curtis movies... I know that she is in My Girl. That's a great movie. *Sniff sniff*

  8. P.S. take care of yourself... you will be back out there soon!

  9. What kind of bon bons would you like for your ultra?

    Here is to a speedy recovery(well not until your done with Jamie Lee) and a great first run :D

  10. Yes, your parents did teach you well. At least your Dad did. I'm not sure if your mother would approve of Jamie Lee Curtis movies. Maybe Tony Curtis movies, except that one with Marilyn Monroe. Or maybe Jamie Farr movies. Oh, that was M.A.S.H. Which might remind you of your knee. All I can say is good luck in your restful couch affairs. And thank you Marcy for editing your comments for me. I have no idea what you are talking about :) No, Seriously :(

  11. If you're going to do something, do it BIG! You have to watch Trading Places. Can you say topless JLC?

  12. Aww...poor Sadie dog has to sit on the couch all week. Does she at least get to eat popcorn with you?

    Hang in there!
