Turns out I now live near where wild alligators live. So Tara decided that it would be awesome to go take a look-see! What we discovered was that the shore of the lake where the gators live is also a great spot for people to hang out with their tiny children and small dogs. We even helped a lady capture a viciously stupid Chihuahua that was running toward the lake with its lead dragging behind it.
Never done an event like this before. Swimming, then biking, then running. No, it’s not an Iron Man triathlon, because I would very literally die from that. It’s something that I know I can do. It’s something that I won’t do unless I push myself. It’s exactly what I need. (Thanks to Bart for signing me up and pushing my limits!)
The swimming portion is in the swimming pools of some resort, about 300m. The biking portion is about 15-20K (can’t remember, honestly). And the running is a 5K after all that. I’m pretty pumped. I know I have it in me, but I still haven’t done something this physically challenging before. Well, perhaps I did back when I was in high school running cross country and track.
First, despite what the title says, I have not yet seen “Civil War”, so this won’t spoil anything for you. Also, you vermin out there better not spoil it for me. Or else I’ll… um… be mad? or something? Whatever, you’re good people, I ain’t worried.
Had a discussion recently, and I learned that there are some people out there who don’t schedule their lives around the release of superhero movies. Pretty weird if you ask me. But I don’t judge. I’m going to see “Civil War” this weekend with my friends, and I’ve kinda had that planned in my head for, I dunno, a few months now.
I’m kinda the same with the fire-hose of Star Wars movies coming out.
I’m writing this, inspired by Ken Burns’ documentary, The Dust Bowl. I’d like to bring up some things that I think people just don’t want to hear. The Dust Bowl will probably happen again, and within […]
Hey dudes and dudettes. Ever had depression? It kinda sucks. I’ve been susceptible to it for quite a while. I needed medication when I first got it, and it took a lot for me to […]
[Note: This post is inspired by MsKristina85 and a comment she made on my last post. Thanks!] I love to try new things. There are so many experiences out there that might seem weird or […]
The place I work, which will remain nameless until I finally leave it, is a gas station that serves hot food. This hot food has to be ready for any customer whenever they want it. […]
I’ve been doing things lately to make myself a bit more healthy. I’ve been eating much better. I especially have forced myself to eat nothing (or at least very little) from the gas station I […]
My wife, Dr. TFred, works at a hospital as a surgery resident. In this hospital, there is a surgery resident lounge where the residents can do their paperwork, watch TV, relax on a couch, and […]
I’ve arbitrarily decided that I will designate Saturday as my day to create poems or insightful, thoughtful fiction. Thus, Sensitive Saturday. Also, I’ve decided to make Sunday my day of rest. Because, like god, I […]
