Oof. Puck Moonen kicks my ass in w/kg. And if she meets her offseason goals, she'll be right on top of me in plain ol' watts.

Probably don't see it in use because I generally only correspond with lawyers and my clients' decision makers. And because Texas. People in general are more closed minded and guarded around here.

It's been a part of legal correspondence in Colorado for a couple years. It's Texas.

I think that I just need to fight my instincts and remember that she's not looking for solutions - she's looking for commiseration. I'll try to just shut my yap other than to say, "that sucks, honey - sorry to hear it. Would you like a glass of wine?"

I'm a problem solver as well. My wife finally just told me stop solving and start commiserating.

100% accurate, in my experience. If she wants advice/input, she will ask for it. Otherwise, she just wants someone to listen to vent to...and get her wine.

Naww. Tweeting is dumb. I enjoy reading tweets occasionally though.

I picked up some cans of Frico Frizzante this morning. Good to have that stuff in the house for her.

This is what my wife told me. But she doesn't do as she tells me to.

My Y hoops team has started up again. Kids on the team have been getting vaccinated immediately after turning 12, so we'll have a mix. I recruited one of my son's friends. He's from Ethiopia, 5'6", size 9 men's shoes, hands as big as mine, and 11. Never played any basketball and is nervous, which is perfect.

We have a wine cellar and a fully-stocked liquor cabinet, so we're all set.

Yeah, she's really liked the whole sparkling-in-a-can trend. She's also a light drinker, so being able to pop one and let the others sit 'til whenever is nice. My LLS didn't have cans in the cooler, though, so a bottle this time around. Maybe Costco will have some cans again when we make a trip later this week.

Unfortunately, my alcohol consumption is like a goldfish that grows to the size of the aquarium it's in; better to keep the stock lowish.

Pilot noise for Mrs. Mojo. When I did the grocery run yesterday. I picked up two bottles for her. Got good servant points

Secret code for pinot noir?

LesterOfPuppets 10-12-21 04:17 PM

That's a good one.

Our President is building s high speed rail project across the southeast part of the country. It passes within a stone's throw of the house. Every couple days we're treated to an explosion off in the near distance. I can't be sure if I'm feeling it in the air only, or in the ground too. I haven't heard of any houses falling down yet.
I've had to change up my routes to avoid the parades of dump trucks.

I can feel it in the air tonight.

land sharks are real and spectacular.

My bil is a breakthrough case. He got vaxxed, and then took few, if any, precautions. They offered him regereron, which he accepted, and is doing fine now, two weeks later. And should be immune, no?
Or moreso anyway.

My sig line says GFY because that's how I feel 99% of the time. Ok, it might only be 98.573% of the time.

Back in my homesteading days, I listened to Phil on the cassette player and the Reds on the transistor radio while out clearing the land. Good times.
