Congratulations.

I got married on the 16th... the woman has always been very good to ensure I eat well and think I gained 5 pounds while I was in Portland as there was a lot of feasting going on during the celebrations.

Had a pretty busy day today. Drove 3 hours for a job interview, which I have no intention of taking if they offer it to me. Also brought my bike and did some mountain biking at some nearby trails.

Eating a very tasty taco salad dinner and daydreaming about going to Hawaii. I want to hike to the volcanos and watch the lava flow into the ocean.

A decent enough offer and I'd be back in the land of brats 'n beer in a second...especially the Wausau area. Madison...even better. SC could learn a thing or fifty from Wisconsin about good biking roads [and driver manners].

I just got back from the Zombie Walk here in Louisville. It's a really bizarre thing that I'd never heard of until this morning.

Thousands of people dress like zombies and take over a major street for about an hour. Even a city bus was stuck in traffic. It was madness. It was like a riot without the destruction and violence. There was even a zombie band shuffling along.

Once it was over I rode down for a beer.

My point exactly. Why do you think absolute perfection took 136 tries?
Is your beard robotic too?

Yay - I'm sitting in Newark NJ airport on my way home. Of course I have another 2 hours on my layover. Ugh. Thank goodness for my computer and internet stick ---- and for finding one of the few seats next to an electric outlet! Sheesh - Pittsburgh airport is loaded with them! Newark and Dullas - few and far between. And so much for an outlet on the plane as was touted in a description of the plane on line. Hmmph. Oh yeah and T-Mobile - you can bite me - this stupid stick doesn't work in OH, barely pull a signal in Pittsburgh or in Raleigh.

I'm ready to go home and see my kitties.

Wondering if you can track a FedEx package too many times and if repeated tracking slows down or speeds up the delivery process.

They don't need any more manure. They'll get that from either well-meaning politicians or the tv. or both.
