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.
The job is keeping me busy. I’m thankful that they seem to truly value a good balance between work and life. I get to do things here that I haven’t done anywhere else before. I […]
I’ve told folks on my social media, but I realized I haven’t posted here for a bit. All of what follows is because of Tara. She’s been a rock for me when things were bad, […]
So, my butt hurts. Biking will do that. Yeah, I trained, but where I live now is pretty flat, and the biking portion for the event was quite hilly. As I started, I didn’t think […]
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.
I’ve been busy lately. Moving in to a new place with my sweetie, and we got a kitten: Zephyr! I’m feeling very happy with my new home and new family with a new kitty.
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 just spent an entire day being the tech support guy at work. Our main IT person is in Atlanta, and never comes to our office. So when I came in and our phones and Internet were down, I did what anyone else would have done: I turned it off and back on again.
It’s in a many pieces as I feel like making. Now to find somewhere to put this lumber. FYI, this is all powered by Mexican beer.
The monstrosity has been vanquished. Mostly. More fun crowbar work to do. Some idiot decided to put this together with wood glue as well as screws. Feels real good, though.
