I clean up nice.

But I hate wearing suits and dress clothes... Or pretty much anything with a collar and long sleeves with cuffs.

And pants that are made from a material flimsier than denim. And shoes you can't comfortably run or climb in. Or anything that has to be dry cleaned and pressed or ironed to get wrinkles out of it.

So... In other words: everybody always tells me how good I look dressed up... But I almost always hate every second of it.

i look damn good in a suit, but i also dont feel comfortable in one.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

@Keyan. Don't bother. If she is pinning for a guy that was nice to her and is now thousands of miles away you wont have much luck. right now he is perfect in every way to her, even if reality says otherwise. she can start pointing out all your flaws and how you cannot compare to her fantasy boyfriend.

I've been the guy who was nice to a girl and was then thousands of miles away. Didn't stop the girl from getting interested in someone closer.

I, of all people, really should have a 3-piece suit, and just lose the jacket. And the tie. Just walk around like Han F-in' Solo...

I haven't owned one for years, however...




So far the birthday is OK. I am at work, however... and will be until late tonight... and that kinda sucks...

went on mini-road trip after my pt test with my one friend, to...Silent Hill. aka Centralia. it was awesome. it's more worth it to go in the winter though to see the steam coming out of the road. it was a fun trip, and i got a bad sunburn too.

Did 5 stops on the Tour De Pearl. At each stop I have to ride my Bicycle, and then order a Pearl Street Brewery beer. My wife ended up only drinking about half her beers, and i the rest. We did it over 4 hours.

Those that compete and complete the Tour get into a drawing for a $3000 custom made bike

My life has taken an interesting turn: I was contacted last night, and identity confirmed today, by a woman who turns out to be a half sister whom my mother had given up for adoption at age 18. We spent the bulk of the day connecting my half sister with the rest of the family, and I am very much looking forward to getting acquainted with her, as I kind of always wanted an older sibling.

Some of you may have also seen it on Facebook, but today also marks five years since the bowling outing with my brother that "lit the fuse" for my return to league bowling.

Spent most of the day cleaning and getting ready for company. My wife's dad and his younger sister are showing up for a few days

Used boiling water to help peel a half bushel of peaches we got. Monday we are planning on having my infamous Maple-soy marinaded salmon on the grill. Peach sangrias for drink

Hoppy Barfday, Crack-Baby!!!



I've spent most the the weekend sitting still in one place... Melting.

Went to the nearby quarries yesterday afternoon. They turned it into a park a few years back. No swimming there anymore... But you can walk around, looking at the old structures.

There's a cool breeze now... But also a lot of rumbling thunder around us.

Looks like thars a big storm a-comin'...

Happy birthday, crack.

Man, still way too hot. I managed to get through my five-mile run this morning by taking it very slowly and drinking a ton of water before I started, though.

Not a horrible weekend... But not the most memorable or productive one either.

It was just too hot to do much that involved a lot of physical activity.

I drew out (or re-drew...) some maps that will be part of my campaign world once we start playing D&D seriously again.

Played a little Skyrim. Watched Blazing Saddles...

Seems a lot nicer this morning... So far.

It should be a short week for me. Yay!

may go for a 2 mile run today. i'm pretty dehydrated though (according to the dark yellow color of my pee), so might wait til it's like 90 degrees, which by the time i am fully hydrated that's what the temperature will be.

i need alot of work with my car

windshield
rear driver side window
spark plug wires
tires
bodywork (rust around the rear wheel wells)
brake light
brakes

just need alot of cash so i can get it all fixed. it's going to drive nice i think when all that work is done, hopefully. not sure how much it will all cost...i know windshield is $180, and the tires around $140 if i get them brand new, not sure about the other stuff but i'm sure it will add up fast. it's for a...

1998 chevy tracker 4x4 4DR Hardtop. I'm going to be sad if i have to get another vehicle, will probably roam around looking for another just like it because it is so comfortable for me to drive (plus easy to dodge careless drivers in)

I dislike going to work also. Really tempted to take a sick day. I work in a warehouse that has no air conditioning.

The Managers attitude on the heat in a nutshell

Manager: YOu cannot air condition a 70,000 square foot warehouse
Worker: We shouldn't have to work in these conditions
Manager: You are right, you don't have to <Ominous silence>

I used to work in a 120,000 sq ft. cold storage ware house. Place was a constant 35 degrees except for the freezers which were at -5.

At work. Bored. I really shoulda took the day off... but I thought the end of the week time off would be better... since I'm working over the weekend.

I'll be getting out of here soon, though...

I used to be in a very serious relationship. It ended almost a year ago (last August) and I haven't been able to get over it. When we broke up, she told me that she'd be having her doubts ever since we were in Chicago.

We were in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend.

So I was a little down over that. I was bored and decided to watch a movie. I chose Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which was a mistake on its own. To make things worse, the hotel we stayed at on that ill-fated trip...is literally next door to the building that the Decepticons have their teleporter on. So I get to be reminded about that weekend.

Hell. I can barely ever seem to catch a break. I think it would be easier on me if actual bad stuff happened instead of death by paper cuts.
