U.S. to unveil "more realistic" plan for military... →
Cute story, as we march on forth to war with Iran via everyone’s buddy, Israel. What a complete farce but some key statements can be pulled, primary one being: “From an operational perspective it’s an opportune time to take a look at what the U.S. military is doing and what it should be doing or should be preparing itself to do over the next 10 to 15 years,” You know...
Iowa Caucus Results
By my fuzzy calculations it is now safe to assume there are at least 96,036 absolute lunatics running amuck in Iowa. Zombies, perhaps. Probably just run of the mill republicans! The fact that 25% of any population actually looked at a list of names and picked Rick Santorum as their #1 candidate is telling. There are at least 26,219 people in that dump of a state who at least give a small rats ass...
There is something inherently wrong with shirtless running on January 3rd. It offends my sensibilities. I did, however, realize on today’s run that it’s not so much the fact that it’s pushing 70° in January; actually perfect weather. Rather, it’s the fact that I know what is right around the corner…peel your face off heat. If it were like this in Summer I’d have...
San Antonio Spurs Schedule →
Seriously. I’m certain it’s very similar to the rest of the league but for an aging Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker these back-to-back games are killers. Of course, you could probably say the same for the shortened ‘99 season with Robinson and Elliott among others. This season is going to be a grind! Health maintenance will be paramount, of course, last night Manu breaks his pinky...
Thoughts on 2012
Thus far, a complete success… on a personal note that is. Made it through the horrid Interstate 10 corridor between Houston and San Antonio complete with one stop at the ridiculously busy Buc-ee’s, which for non-Texans, was basically a cross between a black Friday Wal-mart, a standard interstate truck stop, and a Ritz-Carleton (as I could probably eat off the bathroom floor). Today was...
Home Crap Home
Cleaning generally sucks but always best to clean before leaving. Nothing worse than coming home to a bunch of rubbish all over the joint. At least at this point there’s a clean house with a pissed off Mr. Sōcrates, that jerk.
Zags, puppies, & bowls
Add some beer, tacos, Sabres, and Spurs. This is how my year will end. Golden retriever puppies (or two year olds) are really not much different than human babies after about 3 chocolate bars. The Meineke Texas Bowl was good today. A&M had to make it a game though. In never ceases to disappoint me though at any sporting events, a $9 beer. Pass. Reliant Center is decent though. Now just need...
San Antonio to Houston
If the drive between the two is considered “God’s Country”, he either punted or just failed. That drive blows.
New Running Gear
Tested out some new gear for my first run in a week. I hadn’t planned on taking the entire week off but the break felt great. Ma didn’t quite understand why she was buying me $40 compression socks…and that’s on the cheaper end of the lot. I asked for Feetures Elite compression socks as I’ve worn their no-show tab socks for years now and love them. I think I spent more...
Wine bar at BWI
I generally don’t roll like this but fak, another 10 hours in this joint; twice in one week. Time to drown my sorrows, actually my wallet, in this glass (or more) of whatever.
Another 0230 wake up
Travel day. San Antonio to Houston to BWI to San Antonio. In one day. My pack, chockablock full of food and reading. Another blast. ***EDIT side note: I’m done with the tipping every bloody person who does anything. Not talking, of course, of wait staff or bellhops, etc, but the clown outside of the terminal who does “curbside check-in”, or in other words, the guy who weighs...
Christmas and Star Wars...
Go together like, well, Legos and Star Wars. Or like Legos and Christmas, perhaps. I think a Christmas without Star Wars and/or Legos is a Christmas not worth having.
I'll sleep when I'm dead...
Or on the plane rather. Day began T 0230. San Antonio to Houston to Baltimore/Washington —-> meet and pick up kiddo —-> Baltimore/Washington to San Antonio. One day whirlwind nightmare to be repeated, exactly, in 6 days. Should be fun. ***So this is new- was in line to be molested by TSA, bag and shoes on the belt. I guess I look legit enough to bypass any screening of my...
Sadly, being 1600 miles away from Amy I had to find a new artist. Of course that doesn’t discredit the guy I found, by what I’ve seen he’s legit… in fact, I dropped off three new ideas for him to throw some thought into. I stopped in to check up today. These should be a few epic pieces, starting on some leg work. All I’ll say right now is that there’s a Buffalo...
