    How can I possibly be the one to start this thread at 9:05 AM? Some monkeys must still be celebrating 4/20 in the shed. Good ride last night. I am regaining my comfort level on the bike during my commute home. having fun on few staircases and curbs along the way. I forgot how much of a core workout one can get from just hopping up a few curbs and executing some wheelie drops.

    Is it Friday, yet? Yes it is! :banana:

    The last part of the new drive train should be arriving today. It's raining here so there will be plenty of time for wrenching today. In other news, it looks like the Bruins postseason ends tonight. :disgust1:

    Nope. You're it.

    Cough remains. Looking at full day, then spring skiing tomorrow. Ski hill is getting about 2" and hour this morning but I can't bail on work. Tomorrow may be a pow day!

    Got a new NW chainring for the hardtail so I'll put that on tonight.

    I hope not. I'd rather the Sens post season end soon. Their stadium is close to one of my riding spots, and on game nights traffic is horrendous to go riding. Stupid hockey.

    Rain finally stopped and the sun is coming out. Forecast is looking much drier for the next few days. I'm thinking I'll hit up the BPW trails tomorrow morning.

    Here. 5# lighter this morning than when I woke up. Coincidentally, I am no longer allowed to use the upstairs bathroom until Wifey has woken up. Hoping to get in a ride and pool day with Haley this weekend.

    Boss is threatening to pay for my CFP, but that would require I stay for 1yr after completion. That locks me into my team for 2 years: one to prep, one to pay for it. I'm not sure $5k is worth the anchor as I can likely get that kind of income difference in one year of comp. Wifey and I will be discussing it in more detail this weekend.

    Or you could just honor the repay agreement if a better opportunity arrives before your two years are up...

    Also, morning Monkies!

    Dogs walked, sipping espresso in the camper. Contemplating setting up the first aid station and getting into my EMT uniform. Ruth is getting her horse ready for her competition ride at 11:30

    I couldn't maintain body temperature last night. Sick as a dog. Didn't sleep well, clearly, but at least my fever broke about 3 AM. Therefore I'm at work, dragging ass.

    Morning Monkeys.

    Projected 71 and sunny today. Also projected, little to no productivity. FTSF is in full swing and the coffee isn't nearly strong enough.

    I absolutely would. The risk being that if I say 'no', she puts me onto the might quit list. I say 'yes' and an opportunity comes up internally, I might not be able to take it.

    2 years commitment for $5k? Laughable. If they want long term commitment, they better come up with some reasonable equity sharing plan.

    In other news, a battery in my brand spanking new Dell XPS ist kaputt. The chassis gets uncomfortably hot when the PC is on, without any CPU load or running apps, both when on battery power or on charger. FTS :rant:Let's see how BBuy handles this unfortunate situation less than 3 weeks after I have acquired it.

    Holy balls am I sore, but the yard finally looks good again. Also, I need a new weed eater.

    Wet and squishy out. Rained all night. Dog walk then ?????

    Years ago I was offered the opportunity to spend a paid year in Bend/Redmond learning the finer points of putting together some pretty advanced composite aircraft at Lanciar/Columbia. While this was certainly an amazing opportunity, the thought of being locked into another 2 years at Troutdale Aircraft, owned and operated by the west coasts most unrepentant sociopath, was just WAY too much. Many things I regret, but saying no to that is not one of them.

    On a lighter, more musical note, I am debating going to see some bands at the Sweetwater 420 fest fest tomorrow. Lets see how the social and finance committees rule on that proposal.

    Therefore no long term commitments from the regular slaves, right?

    It is hard to throw a 3 day festival on a Thursday.

    Shows a serious lack of dedication to 4-20, IMO. :disgust1: :D

    It's more about fronting the funds. I'm ignorantly cheap on things sometimes and I'm feeling this is one of those occasions.

    Fuckit Friday in full effect.

    About to ride with the roadie girl I met on Tinder. She's ridden her new MTB a few times, but today will be the first taste of some real hills and roots. So many route options in this forest. :brows:

    Also finally got around to returning my empties to the Beer Store. 300+ cans and 90ish bottles. Got myself some "free" beer. :D

    A little hung over for fried food and drinks bonanza yesterday so I countered it with French onion soup burger, fries and a larger. Tons of stuff to do before I leave on Wednesday especially eat tons of good food with friends.

    Morning, short week this week, more training and scenarios. Should actually be getting my review done here soon too which equates to a raise. Good times
