    Default Grumps can suck it, it's Friday!

    This doesn't have to catch on as a positive counterpart to the grumps thread, but I'm pumped and I don't care who knows it.

    Should be closing on first house in the next few days. Lots of work to come. Will have tons of shop space for bike/electronic/musical projects. Fuckyes.

    Hell yes. Friday lasted 48 hours in this jawn. Wifey woke up and said, "Let's ride our bikes." So we did, tandem, 52 miles, which is a freaking record by the way. The boy is at his grandparents for three weeks in the country, we had brilliant ethiopian for dinner and watched Die Hard. Y'all will excuse me, now, but, as the man said, "Today was a good day."
    This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the bike.

    Life is wonderful!!! This past week my bride and I celebrated our 10-yr anniversary and it turned out to be a heck-ova-day.

    Started off by getting to test-drive a FRS - something the sales manager said we couldn't do (cool story but I don't want to bore you with details). Apparently I was only the 2nd person since the FRS became available who's been able to test-drive one from our dealer.

    Later that afternoon we checked into Hotel Indigo in town. Wife and I have had a running joke (not repeatable) about staying there since they were building the building. Anyway I splurged and reserved one of the uber-nice suites as a surprise, but when we got there they told us they'd upgraded us to one of the "condos" upstairs! 3 bedroom 2.5 bath... it was literally bigger than our house and with a 10th floor view of A-Ville to die for. Several great meals and a day spent together down-town later we were ready to go back home to the kids.

    Racing this weekend. Better yet, my six yr old is doing his first race this weekend. He is more than excited. He has his little kit all laid out and he is ready to rock and roll. It is all he can talk about. Really cool for me to share this with my boy. Cheers.

    Had a "retreat" at work yesterday. After the obligatory mission statement review and "Brainwalking" (a variation of brainstroming) exercises, the whole office went out to lunch together. The yearly retreat lunch is usually a stiff, awkward, surface-conversation affair. However, yesterday the beer and wine flowed, tattoos were revealed, swinger parties, viagra, and the need to legalize weed were referenced in interesting, laughter-inducing conversations. It was refreshing.

    Wait...swinger parties actually happen??!? I thought that stuff was just internet fantasy junk for developmentally-thwarted monkeyspankers....like that weird Cuckolding shit... I need to get out more. And to follow up on something from yesterday...why does it seem like folks who publicly pronounce their polyamorous lifestyle....never look like anyone you'd want to be, um, polyamorous with? Shallow..I know. Don't get me started on Plushies. What the hell is wrong with people?

    My youngest son, who is almost two years old just developed a big lump by his jaw. Popped up overnight a few weeks ago. It is on his lymph node so our minds went to the darkest places possible. Ultrasounds, biopsy, bloodwork were all inconclusive. My wife and I were petrified until this morning. Turns out his immune system is in the big ring fighting a bird poop borne fungus. He will get better with a month long antibiotic regimen. So thankful. It is a good Friday.

    P.s. no one has to do pushups here unless they like pushups or they do something stupid and get it DCT'd.

    A $200 inspection saved me from the money pit I thought I wanted in the OP. Snatched my balls out of the salad shooter at the last second.
