Does anybody else get ball-shaving ads? I do mean that literally. The LAWNMOWER 5000 or MANSCAPED. They’re written in the style I would have used 20 years ago as a parody, and I don’t know how ...


Find your microcycle, I like to say. Though, at times, it’s a matter of observing it. We all have a cycle, one way or another. The repeated actions we perform, sometimes with thought and somet...

Grandma Gamer.

Picture it, Upstate NY, 1988. You’re visiting your Grandma. It’s 40 acres on top of a hill. A barn, a chicken coop, two dogs, a pond, a back field, some woods. In the middle bedroom, there’s ...

12 Steps Revision.

Naturally, I do my best thinking when improvised. Related to improvising: Years ago, Liz dared me to rewrite Dante’s Inferno as a children’s story. I was stumped. Then again, I have only p...

Switch to no-stim, dude.

Slept 11 hours last night. Quality of sleep was good; still didn’t want to get out of bed. Sounds nice on paper, to just laze in bed with two cats. Wasn’t too difficult to talk myself into going...

Dual Approval.

You know, it just hit me that I’ve never had both parents like me. You know what I mean, dating partners. There’s one parent that kind of takes a shine to you, and the other tolerates you. And...

Workout Motivation.

One of the perks of being a forum-goer is I end up repeating responses to certain queries over and over. Each time, like starting a painting anew^, the response becomes more refined. ^Oh, that’s...

Claims.

I dragged my feet filing a claim, despite it starting as an online thing. I spent a few minutes with a very burned out claims lady. Even when I’m confused, I still have an animated retail voice...

Still no news.

I always feel tired on rest days. Gym is closed today for some religious bullshit, so I went yesterday for a light workout. (Somehow, OHP, squats, and curls qualifies as light for me.) I slept...

Another link forged.

30 workouts in 6 weeks. I write it down to read it, as I seem to not feel much as things happen. I seem to be the type to yearn for some begotten era. Constantly nostalgic. All “I used to…” W...

2 @ 345 lbs.

Beat my ten year old 1RM. Pulled 345 lbs for a double. Did consider going for 355 lbs, but decided to favor delayed gratification. The work sets are going to get heavier and heavier. Back-off ...

100.

Yesterday was a High Gravity Day™ in terms of deadlifts. Really, my grip kept giving out. Well. Felt like it might. Last thing I want is the bar slipping out of my hand mid-lift. That’s aski...

Walking isn't exercise.

There’s a reason I get irked when people call walking exercise. Is walking good? Yes, that’s not debatable. But if walking is exercise, then there’s something wrong with you. Everyone should b...


Who had petty gossiping on their Public Consciousness Bingo? Oh gawd, SHUT UP. Makes me wonder what the next thing will be. We’ve been foreign policy experts. Medical experts. Stale cheeto st...

25 First Pulls.

On paper, deadlifting 5x5 @ 275 lbs sounds like maximal heavy work. It is, but it ends up feeling like damned cardio, even with five minute rest periods. I can’t fathom doing it without an anal...

Calm nothing.

I seem pretty comfortable in stagnation. Hopefully the hot water situation is done. The carpet is finally dry. Who doesn’t hate having wet feet? The new heater worked for like a day, and then ...


I pulled 335 lbs for a double. Nice. New 2RM, 10 lbs off from my best all-time pull. But I must tip my fedora to the woman in the squat rack next to me. Barefoot, pregnant, squatting to parall...

Sustainability.

Vacuuming up buckets and buckets of water out of the carpet is oddly therapeutic. Vacuum floor, receive reward! Did call maintenance yesterday, but well. It’s a Sunday today. I’ve triple-check...

What is a Lady?

So anyway, I was in the middle of one of my seven* lateral raise sets when two ladies changed exercises and started doing hip thrusts in my general direction. Being orthogonal to me, relatively ...

Punxsutawney Phil.

I had just finished my workout and was washing my hands in the room where boys wave their penises around. Because I like having clean hands. Don’t want to get funky bro-sweat on my steering whe...


Vacation endings are another altered state. Not quite back to reality, but no longer riding the dopamine or serotonin. Currently waiting at port for a bus to where Airk’s car is parked. Last crui...

Centered.

We’re on route to port. Airk is driving. Estimate it has been six years. I have few guy friends, but he is one. In his words,he knows to use kid gloves around me. And that I’m a “special kind of ...


Have I mentioned I’m going on my third Star Trek cruise? I leave at 2:27 PM today, and I am EXCITED. Paid the rent, just tying up some loose ends at this point. Timing my food so I’m not hungry...

I mean business.

Apparently. Is that what he said? Felt like that was what he was trying to get across. Got a slight scratchy throat yesterday, and some nasal congestion that seemed to peak this morning. Made ...

You get a gold star!

I just clipped my nails. It’s one of those small things I annotate on my calendar. It’s a useless thing to look back upon, yet. When is the last time you clipped your nails? How often do you ...
