    Man, I've got the cabin fever badly this year. I'd kill for a nice long ride or walk somewhere 50+ degrees Fahrenheit with no snow on the ground.

    I really love getting blamed for other people's screw ups! Not! I'm one disrespectful comment away from walking out of my job.

    Welp. I just got a letter from the local medical school. It seems they want to include me into a study. They promise it won't hurt a bit. But there is this "collar" that "fits round your neck" which "squeezes air in and out"...

    Found out this morning that a good friend took his own life yesterday. I've just been sitting here all day trying to make sense of it, even though I know I'll never be able to. We all knew he had his problems, but he never gave us any indication, you know? He had so many great people for friends, and a huge, close family. I'm absolutely sick over this.

    Thanks. While he was a good friend and everything, I'm mostly sad for his closer friends and family.

    Watching the Olympics with my wife and enjoying a coffee while we wait for her ultrasound and then we can look forward to doing this again in a year... After 22 years the odds of her cancer returning are slim to none but tests need to be run just in case.

    We know how to go on a hot date.

    Thanks. It's been a rough week, but the people I was mainly concerned about seem to be doing well, all things considered. I feel so awful I couldn't make it to the services, but I'm fairly confident everyone who noticed will understand.

    Planning my next bow....the hickory long bow self destructed this weekend, due to some help from a dork overturning the bow rack at the range.
    Already got most of the stufff ordered....need to get a planer and some tapered lams, make a frame, and glue it up. Probably take a month or more since I've never worked with fiberglass before.

    Just realized that I'm getting drug tested this morning. I could have sworn that the paperwork said tasting.

    Was hanging out with a friend yesterday and we decided that since he needed an electric assist for his bike and I have been looking for a guitar that we'd do some swapping today... I don't need the electric kit and he collects guitars like I collect bikes and said he had a few I could take off his hands.

    Hehe.

    Snowing like crazy here in Chicago. I was supposed to work the late shift, but I'm seriously considering calling in. I really don't feel safe driving in this weather, even though it is only like 2 miles for me.
