    Morning Monkeys.

    I am here way too early, but I need to test drive the whip before dark. Excited to ride my bike again with the newish fork, too.

    The guy at the shop said "what fork is this adapter off of?". The look on his face when I said "2001 Super T" was pretty good. He asked me to bring the RM7 by when I get it together. He wants to parking lot test it with the Van R. :rofl:

    Vintage.

    Trails were solid packed snow last night, what a hoot. Not much grip at all. And then a few turns had some gnarly ice, which I completely cartwheeled out of on one. Somehow didn't get run over by the guy behind me. :rofl:

    I hope it snows a little...

    Free Christmas lunch here at work today. Hell yeah.

    Today I learned: hand sanitizer will melt the ice inside of a frozen vehicle door lock.

    Just got my new phone yesterday-replaced one with cracked screen. So what do I do this morning? Funny you ask..drop new phone and crack the god damn screen. Fuck this day and fuck this week.. Oh, and we are supposed to get 10-20" of snow this weekend. 10-20" of snow in North Carolina equals complete shit show. ARRGG

    One really awful thing about this office is the location. It's on the edge of the frozen gorge and this frigid wing is like 60mph. The walk from the warm car to the office is a killer.

    Mornin!

    First night back in the camper after the mold debacle and it sure was a good one. Slept for a whole 4 hours uninterrupted; no tossing, no turning, nothing, just sleep. I can’t remember the last time I’ve slept continuously for that long. It felt awesome.

    Good Morning!

    Kinda cold out there today. We're supposed to get snow this weekend, but it could also be 70 degrees....pull the slot machine handle and see what kind of weather pops up. Incidentally, I think NC has a high percentage of bipolar issues....if I'm remembering correctly from my sheet of made-up statistics.

    :wave:

    I should be skiing, yet here I am, locked down at home waiting for lowes to deliver stove #2. Hopefully the correct stove this time. Else, wise after coffee, might as well get household shit done. It is uncomfortably cold outside.

    DONT DO THAT!

    Never look when the market is down. Even a fossil like you still has plenty of time. :D

    Wifey is currently completing a ‘Certified Financial Planner’ course, and has signed on with an investment group for her CPA clients. Should be an interesting time to start this.

    A correction is 10%. 20%+ is a crash/bear market.

    A correction is anything above 10%. Crash is just a slightly stronger one.
