  1. These earthquakes are making me so happy. I don’t know why. Just had another aftershock while on a work zoom. My fave so far was the second aftershock at about 2:30 the day of the earthquake. It was two loud booms underground and then a little shimmy and rumble. I loved that. The booms were just amazing! the “big” quake was cool but too much like the furnace is gonna blow kind of thing to thoroughly enjoy. Might like it better now that I know from the outset what it is. 😁
  2. 18 - a good quatranos. I invented a word there and about dreams - my mom and I were talking and she’s always afraid she’s going to fall out of bed she hasn’t but it’s a fear then she said “You’re dad fell out of bed I’ll never forget that … but he was just catching a pass and didn’t even get hurt so It was nothing” Yes, we all talk this way in my house that means he dreamt he was running for a pass and apparently lept out of bed for it…
  3. Yeah…. Be glad I don’t share all my other weird dreams!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY STARDEW! Have to post that every 29th of February!
  4. Weird Stevens dream. I don’t remember details. We met up and had to catch up on a bunch of errands. I thought I was doing them alone but the Scott showed up and said of course he wouldn’t let me go it alone We were kind of traveling all over the world trying to get everything done in one night. It was interesting and fun and I felt like we were accomplishing a lot. So… hmm. That was that. just got over COVID. My mother brought it to us!!!! She was mortified she was the carrier! It’s been a weird 2024 so far. Going to a funeral today. My baby turned 21!! Life is good. Marching on…
  5. Very true about subcontracting out 😁
  6. Holy crud - I’ve been at this for 11 years. And started it a while after #4 retired! So Happy Halloween 🎃 👻
  7. I… I wanna bitch about - and praise my new fitbit. First off yeah- I’m one of those ahole addicts. And yeah if you pass by my house you will indeed see me see aerobicizing at 11:30 pm getting in my 15k. (I’m a fatass so not bragging here. WTF? My metabolism is at its most efficient. I could survive easily on 800 effing kcals an effing F F F Fing F day!!! Infuriating … ANYHOW … I have the inspire because I’m cheap. And it’s great for my health metrics. My old charge 3 said my HRV was like 35. I thought I was a goner at 72 for sure at that rate. Anyhow. Now it’s a respectable 40-60. As if you can even trust that shiz really. It’s like astrology on a fitbit. So it’s the “readiness” calculation drive me nuts. If I walk 10k steps they’ll say thes extremely active. Wth is THAT? I burn a truly measly 2100kcal I a day I get this nonsensical message “ oh dear! You over did it. You better take it easy and watch some fvckin’ meditation videos to control you stress and don’t work out today take a nap. Read a book. AHHhH)&/“(07/?&@: just call me a lazy fatass even. Ahh! SO annoying. My own mother called me porky OK? I don’t need my fucin fitness expert tell me to chill …. fck. This aging thing SO fing blows.
  8. Wow guys. Canada is on fire, eh?
  9. Ahh point. I wish I had more time to canoe. I’ve got my dad’s big broad Old Time Pathfinder. I use it once or twice a year. Afraid the sail boat will displace even that teeny amount of time I have with her. I grabbed my dads old fishing lures Mr Anal kept them in their original boxes so some are actually worth a little. I want to frame them in a shadow box frame or in a curio table. I played with them so much as a kid. Damm I always poked my fingers to death - never fail. It’s like I couldn’t leave them alone - they looked like toys. Anyhow. Hope all is well with Devils fans the word over.
  10. Haven’t written in here in a while. went back to Scotland- loved it. Went to Pointer Trial and Isaac Newton our puppy did his first puppy run. All the pup needs to do is show enthusiasm. Well Newt enthused himself into disqualification. Everyone thought the judge was a dyck. Mostly busy getting the boat back on the water. Not there yet.
  11. Well… I’m watching the dog show. Pointer took 3rd in the Sporting Group. And Oh my gosh. Cutest Great Dane ever. Jumped up on his tiny handler just now — So cute!! Anyhow so the Pointers a Jerzy girl. Well - part anyhow Ok. I’m not focusing. Bye!! Devils will be grand next season - no worries. Lindy Ruff is an ass I don’t trust he learned anything. Only Pat Burns was a lifetime learning coach like that so. Have a great Summer kids!
  12. If it’s not Doc the sound is off when I watch. Just say no to announcers. OK. So. I’m going to bed I guess. Glad so missed those THREE fvckING GOALS OVER TWENTY fvckING MINUTES THAT LASTED OVER MY FORTYFIVE fvckING MINUTE COMMUTE HOME 🤬🤬🤬🤬*£#*}>+$”$”$”A/a/AAAaAAagGGHHhHhH
  13. Yeah … I’m a Jets fan too so … he’s such an asshat. I’m beside myself. But he’s a nice scapegoat for tonight, so he’s served his East coast purpose for now —- wait but that means he’s a big fat fvcking moron science denting jinx. ASSHAT. fvck)8:(&2)&/4@)27)28;
  14. sh!t. The tickets just went up to 309!!!! We were going tI fo the 275. awe just fvck. Mama Mia is on. My husband is blaming Abba for that last one. Ok. I’m not watching any more. We were working on the boat. No one is out at the shore!!! Ok so. Not watching anymore!!!!!
  15. WTF? Just NO!!! The board is not what it used to be .. superstition
  16. I feel like we should buy tickets just because I accidentally am watching after not for a few games… if you know what I mean … oh just forget it… I’m shutting up and not watching now. I’m traumatically superstitious
  17. From the man that brought you The Fonz. What the hell is up with Lazar’s eyebrows? Yeah - my husband was just SO distracted by the over tweezing 🤣
  18. Hi Point! I’m up in Raritan Bay. Debating keeping her on the Sound because that’s where I grew up - on the CT side. But I really like our club. Everyone is so chill. and we can’t leave our dogs for too long going away every weekend. We’re getting a beasty cruiser hopefully the middle of next month. I’ll race on other peoples boats 😁 I am in love however with Prudence the ketch. You can find her online. Met her captain at a local eatery and got talking about sailing and he’s thinking of selling. We took her out and I just fell madly in love ❤️❤️ But she’s all wood. We just don’t have the time or skill. That’s what I keep telling myself 😁. That’s what my dad sailed on Lake Huron back in the day. Not a ketch but everything was wood back then. Hence the Peacock rotting in his buddy’s backyard 😢 Hope your son still finds time to sail! And you’re buddy was lucky!!! I think I’d be scared to really race! I secretly want to do the Bermuda race one day. Doubtful though.
  19. I have a new obsession. Sailing. I love it! It suits me so perfectly!! We’ve been getting out about 3 times a week!! Boat shopping now ❤️⛵️ its a hobby with purpose, can involve team work, tons of little busy work with lots of crap you can screw around with. It’s so chock full of things to do and yet you also get to totally chill out in an idyllic natural setting. yesterday I was heading to race night without a boat to race on and I felt just like I was going to a pickup hockey game 😁
  20. Stevens dream alert! We were coworkers. We were shopping ina duty free shop at an airport. And I was that guy… the person who imitates everyone. I kept on sneaking my Stevens imitation when he was on the other side of the shop. I was “Stevens, restocking shelves” and I’m not sure anyone thought it was funny or uncanny or wanted me to get busted because they kept asking me to do the imitation but didn’t really laugh or comment. No idea why I didn’t want him to see. We were convivial coworkers Hmm. So that was that we might have to move to the Deep South. I’d hate it. I’d reeeally hate it. I hate new homes to start with and that’s all they have down there. And not on the shore. I love water. Rivers actually to be specific. There’s not much where we’d be looking. And all the women love my husband there 😁. Everyone thinks he looks like Mark Ruffallo. But tall. I don’t think Mark Ruffallo is cute but apparently everyone else does. I’ve watched women chase us down in a panic. Then they say oh! I thought you were someone else. Then they turn back as they’re walking away and they’re still all giddy and breathless and ask if anyone has ever told him he looks like Mark Ruffallo. “You really do . I don’t do this giggle giggle. You really do’ apparently when I’m not there they cat call and ask him to hulk out and burst out of his shirt He’s so not that guy I think it’s hilarious He’s Bruce Banner-like scientist even 😂 luckily it doesn’t bug him
  21. Happy belated birthday. I didn’t forget but thought of my great grandfather before Scott Stevens. Ahhh sigh. I’m growing up at last? Nah Our little solid pointer is now a Jr Hunter and passed her first of 4 qualifiers for Senior Hunter The old farts are still here too snoring and getting more disgusting by the month. Emma is going to be 16 . She is totally deaf but still pretty fit and active …. But so what? I do think about Scotland I kind of want to live there My husband would choose Somerset and charming places he want to move to Dolverton I want to move to Aberlour it’s not even Scottish charming I just really liked it but Ithunk Is just want to hang out in the river all day get a meat pie or sausage roll from the local butcher or a fancy cold meat pie from the fancy grocer Eat tunnocks tea cakes and humbugs I never wanted to even try a humbug before I’ve always been kind of a self loathing UK descendant until all of my childhood favorites could only be found in Canada or the UK I had no idea how disgustingly UK I am I took pride in being like Kevin Kline in A Fish Called Wanda well… again … so what. 😁. Back to work!!! yay Scott Stevens. Hope all is well with you and the family 😁
  22. BASEMENT by Louis Jenkins There's something about our basement that causes forgetting. I go down for something, say a roll of paper towels, which we keep in a big box down there, and as soon as I get to the bottom of the stairs I have forgotten what I came down there for. It happens to my wife as well. So recently we have taken to working in tandem like spelunkers. One of us stands at the top of the stairs while the other descends. When the descendant has reached the bottom stair, the person at the top calls out, "Light bulbs, 60 watt." This usually works unless the one in the basement lingers too long. I blame this memory loss on all the stuff in the basement. Too much baggage: 10 shades of blue paint, because we could not get the right color, extra dishes, bicycles, the washer and dryer, a cider press, a piano, jars of screws, nails and bolts.... It boggles the mind. My wife blames it on radon. Louis Jenkins, “Basement” from Tin Flag: New and Selected Poems. © 2013 Will o’ the Wisp Books.

  23. We’re in Scotland!! And fly fishing with a former Red Wing. He retired in 1979 😁 he wasn’t there long. He’s from Sweden. Nice guy so it’s sunny and chilly But out of no where it’s snowing! Like I feel like I’m skiing snowing. I do love it here. We’re Speyside.
