Metallica

December 14th, 2008 · 3 Comments

While I was home (and yes, I realize I haven’t written about my trip home, yet), my brother in law gifted me with copies of the latest offerings from The Sword and Metallica. I’ve played them both countless times. Last night, I got to see them live, with Lamb of God.

Sheared

December 7th, 2008 · 12 Comments

Oh… afore I forget… This is for Jean, who requested pictures of the shearing. Unfortunately, none were taken during the shearing itself, but I do have a pic of me working (about a month old… not me, the pic) so that you can see roughly how long the infamous ponytail was: Perhaps Contagion can supply […]

I’m gone from work for twelve days, and it seems that nobody recognizes me. Yesterday, my ride started to drive past me… until I waved a fist at him. You’d think that folks wouldn’t be so quick to forget someone with whom they’ve worked for over a year. I tell you, it hurts. Almost as […]

Adios

November 20th, 2008 · 13 Comments

Well, the time has come. I’m off to the Midwest, home. With all of the planned running, I feel like I’m going home on leave… there isn’t enough time to see everyone and go everywhere that I’d like to. Saturday, at this time, should see me in Black River Falls, at my bro’s place. Deer […]

A Proclamation

November 16th, 2008 · 7 Comments

I, T1G, do officially pronounce this “Holiday Season.” Sure, the crappy Christmas music has been playing for weeks (Hallows Eve is the first that I noticed it), but crappy music does not a holiday announce. That is up to egg nog shakes and snow. And Houston, we have both.

November 10, 1775. The official birth date of the United States Marine Corps. MY Marine Corps. 233 years young. Tip a drink with me this day, and leave your birthday wishes with my brothers and sisters linked in the handy dandy sidebar. And if you know of someone that I haven’t linked (and I’m sure […]

October 14thI remember that day when the telephone rang; a woman’s voice announced there was an accident you were not breathingI jumped into the station wagon praying it can’t be, it can’t be two miles seemed like an eternity someone told me what happened that morning the monstrous machine fell on you piercing your brain […]

Definites

October 3rd, 2008 · 5 Comments

It’s always nice to know exactly what the hell is going on. Especially in your own damn personal life. Soon, the running back and forth between here and the Bay area will end. I should be back here to stay for the last week of the month. This month. Octember. A few weeks of settling […]

Scaling Down Wk 20… maybe

September 28th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Not a good week. Big gains were made since the last weigh in. BIG. Shouldn’t really matter, because if you’ve been paying any attention, you know that Barmy Mama done kicked my butt. But, (heheh… it says “butt but”) I’m still going to keep track, though maybe monthly, now. I’ve got to get the weight […]

Whut Up? Pt 2

September 28th, 2008 · 8 Comments

They say that laughter is the best medicine. They never really say if it’s preventative or curative. Either way, after my trip to the Blog Expo in Vegas, I don’t think I have to worry about any ills for a long, long time.

Whut Up? Pt 1

September 27th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Sooo… it’s been a great two weeks. Hell, a great month, overall. I’ve been able to hang with some great peeps, making most of the everyday bullshit go away. Always a good thing…

Questions

September 26th, 2008 · 8 Comments

Again, you may find yourself wondering, “Where the hell has this guy been?” And you may find yourself asking, “Did he ever hook up with Harvey and TNT?” And you may say to yourself, “Did he get his dumb ass busted in Sin City?” And I will say to myself, “I’ve got to can this […]

Scaling Down Wk 17(?)

September 14th, 2008 · 22 Comments

Hell… I’ve lost track. Not to mention, I almost forgot about this post… as a matter of fact, I’m on my way out the door, and the camera is already in the car. (Going to meet up with the Blogfaddah and TNT.) For those of you who just have to know, here you go:

Serpent

September 13th, 2008 · 12 Comments

While out for a walk the other day, I came across a sight that very nearly had me soiling my armor… a huge freaking snake. I hate snakes. Anyway, this monster was taking up the parking lot. I tried to find something for size comparison, and then noticed the redwood log lying a short distance […]

Carred

August 31st, 2008 · 10 Comments

The best laid plans… I should be on the road right now. On the bike. But, for those of you who may have missed the obvious, I’m sitting here, typing. Damnit. The bike has been running great since I picked it up, with one exception: the needle in the carb sticks, letting fuel run down […]

Scarred Off

August 30th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Funny the way the mind works. This morning I spied a dog running free in the parking lot. Don’t know who’s (as I was the only apartment with the lights on at 4:30), or what kind of dog he was, other than unfriendly. As I neared the laundry room (never turning my back completely on […]

Good stock. Good battle. Good-bye.

August 24th, 2008 · 5 Comments

This upcoming weekend was supposed to be what my family calls the Cousin’s Picnic. It’s a small reunion of my father’s side of the family. This year, my aunt and uncle decided, after much deliberation, to cancel the get together. My aunt fell in June, and busted up her knee. (Split her knee cap.) It […]

I know you folks were severely disappointed with me for missing last week’s weigh in. (I took off early to catch the White Sox pummel the A’s.) Well, two weeks is a long time, and much can happen…
