Morning Bill. 

 

I woke up an hour ago and can't go back to sleep.  Deciding whether to go to the gym now (since I'm sure I'll need a nap during my regular gym time) or just lay here for three hours.

Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Run until you're exhausted?

 

ETA:. Watching "How it's Made" usually works for me as well.  Any show with monotone narrative I guess.

Yeah, but you could be neighbors with the Isle Of Monkeys.

I did a tour of Las Isletas when I stayed at the kristas' place in Granada. Really cool. 

The place this couple wound up buying for $1.9 million appeared to be 50 yards from the monkeys.

I went to a concert Friday and was asleep at 1:30 but woke up completely by 7.  Saturday I went to bed at 10:45 and slept until 11:30 in the morning. Last night was 11:30 and up at 3:30. I like getting up early when everyone else is asleep, but 3:30 is a bit much.

Wow.  That must have been a helluvan isleta.  Do you know what show it was?  I'd like to see it.

Dixie Chicks show was lit last night. Those girls can do some mighty fine pickin' and singin.'

Also not very common to see ads for Planned Parenthood or the Human Rights Commission on the screen while waiting for the main act at a country music concert.

The "drug-laced candy" were marijuana edibles so I think they knew what they were doing.

damn, wish i could find the quote again. was the sheriff (i think) who said something like "it was marijuana laced candy.. so it's not like they overdosed and got sick... they were just really overjoyed and thought something seemed wrong so they went to get checked out"

I'm not sure exactly when the keys changed hands for SWC, but it's been painfully unfunny lately.

but i'm pretty sure they weren't "deathly-ill" either.  No one has ever died from OD'ing on MJ.

+1, JFC. Best of luck to (possibly) Mr. Beefheart Ford as well. 

We need some better news in here - any #WeekOfGM updates?

It's been 5 full days since the family left and still, I have yet to use a single dish or utensil.  I did eat some thai veggie pizza on Saturday night, so there was some vegetables going into my system, but it's largely been meat, cheese, beer and other things a doctor would urge to eat in moderation only.  Nuts to that!  

Enjoyed my time at the Mariners' game immensely.  Got to see Gary Payton throw out the first pitch to Ken Griffey Jr, which was pretty cool.  Got to do a shot with Fish while he talked about the joys of nymphomania and fishing.  Hung out at a bar downtown Seattle called The Lodge and talked with two twin sisters for about 2 hours after my buddy left me.  Thought that was fun and they enjoyed my stories of being a father to fraternal twins who were sent to this earth to kill me.  

What else....oh, I hung out with Hack and my buddy Dave on Friday.  So much beer!  My god.  I hope to hang out with Hack again soon.  Feels like I've known him for a long time, so hoping the feeling is mutual, though I know I can be a giant pain in the butt and have some personality traits that aren't for everyone.  

Saw two blonde cougars tongue kiss at a dive bar in Issaquah and I don't mean a subtle, sweet kiss either.  It was like looking at a porno the way they were licking each others tongues.  When they looked over at me, I just applauded.  Didn't know what else to do, really.  Played some pool with a young couple that was definitely on the prowl for a better time.  I don't think my 43 year old butt was their ideal target, but the gal was really cute and funny.  She was trash talking about how she was going to destroy us, but we aced them.  Short skirt and black boots with a yellow flower in her hair.  Smoked a big bowl with them outside and a few other folks joined us to.  Very festive and fun.

But there were some big giant bros in the bar too and the huge bouncers forcibly removed two of them.  That lead to a near fight outside right by my buddy's Audi.  He was a nervous wreck that this lunkheads would smash his car up, but calmer heads prevailed.  Speaking calmer heads, we left his car there and took a Lyft home.  I've not touched a steering wheel after imbibing this entire time, so some personal growth is a good thing.  A DUI at this point in my life would be a ruinous thing and I'm glad my fraternity brother and I are wising up in our elder years.  There was a time that both of us had lousier judgement and I'm really hoping those days are long long long gone.

What else...think that's about it.  I haven't really had any downtime.  Been constantly on the go, which I like.  Work is about as interesting as it's ever been with new partners coming into our metals fund to buy cobalt.  We've pulled in over $6MM since May 1, which is tiny in the world of hedge funds, but for too long, we were just seeing redemptions, so it's nice to reverse course.  I really believe this cobalt trade is going to work as well as the uranium did back in 2004-2007.  Only thing was I wasn't working for this guy in 2007, so I didn't receive the payout I might this go around.  So....fingers crossed.  Five kids and one income has been really challenging and I'm hopeful to breathe again soon.  

I do have a very interesting situation happening today at 5pm.  I've typed a book here, so maybe I'll recap it tomorrow if I live.  Sorry for the clickbait, Shuke.

Thanks for the invite, #######s.

Sorry, but really there was no invite nor any plans.  He texted me on his way to the game and asked if we were going.  He had the amazing Rover kid with him, so honestly, we spent about enough time together to shoot a tequila and trash marriage.  I was in and out of Seattle in about 24 hours exactly.  Honestly surprised a man with Fish's propensity to guzzle booze had the ability to remember.

FIL's cancer has metastasized into the bone. Inoperable. Consolation prize is that it's apparently the slowest growing kind. He's got 5 years if he's in the 50th percentile. 

Go #### yourself, cancer. 

How will they find out what percentile he's in? #### cancer!

  Once again, on the same page GB.  Mrs. SLB was out of town for 4 days and was pretty much destroyed the entire time but either had people over or took cabs. 

As I just posed on FB, I was mistaken for Matt Holliday Saturday night at a concert which is even funnier when you're high and drunk.

Yesterday was my day or rest however and I felt really bad.  So I watched a couple of movies with the boys.  Major League was one of them which has never been one of my favorites but I figured they would and did.  Plus I like to watch movies their mother would never approve of and don't care about cussing and a little nudity.  Never violence though.

This morning the three of us we walking when Dyl says "dad, remember when they had the poster of the girl and they kept removing a sticker for every game them one?  How come they didn't remove the last one?" Cal says "Dylan, she was wearing leopard skin undies".  Dyl "but why didn't they take them off?!"

Swedish Fish flavored Oreos???  Sorry if I'm late to learning about this, but I was busy mourning civilization as we know it.

No offense, shuke.

Are we doing outrage now? I mean, I'm glad an American dude won a silver medal in synchronized diving, really I am. But you cannot go walking around in public, in a Speedo, with the name Steele Johnson. You just can't.

:lmao:  Missed this.  I have been busy watching Montenegro lose to Croatia in water polo (sorry for spoiler) and being actually bummed that they lost.  Now I feel like I need to find the diving highlights...you know, for research.

When we were in San Diego last month, we toured the USS Midway and the US men's water polo team was doing an appearance on the boat at the same time. My wives are now huge fans of the sport.
