    That's not really fair to drunk 5yo's, IMO.

    A) Not that we need the daily reminder, but “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.”

    B) You’ve got to be shitting me. It’s survived hundreds of years only to be brought down by a careless roofer? :rant:

    I made that part up.

    But when the roof caught fire here at the airport last year, that was why.

    If that's true it'd still be less weird than the story of Kinkaku-ji

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinkaku-ji

    CN: Built in 1397. Burnt around 1477, rebuilt. Then burned intentionally in 1950 by a mentally ill novice monk. Rebuilt in 1955 yet again.

    Meh. Wife is out of town for two days, so it's daddy daycare. Getting two little kids ready in the morning is hell. At least my older one is semi-sufficient. I only had to hear him whine for like 5 minutes that mom normally puts clothes out for him in the morning. You know where your dresser is you little punk, I still have to make sure your brother doesn't leave the house looking like Pigpen.

    Trust me, I find all the idiosyncrasies when I take the kids to school. My wife is a great mom, but her and I are definitely on different sides of the spectrum when it comes to catering to the kids and they know it.

    That's actually not been a problem. Not to say it won't, but the oldest is excellent about the bathroom. Youngest is still in diapers at almost three. So there's that. I'm seriously not going to miss most of life with kids under about 4. My older one is 5 and he's awesome. Can talk, tell you what he wants, follows directions for the most part. I can't wait for my younger one to talk more clearly and shit in the toilet.

    On a side note, bikes were ridden yesterday. Weird little spot called Santa's Village. They built some trails and there's a quick pedal to the top, but it's pretty rad.

    My 6 year old just wants to read by herself on the Kindle. All the time. The 1-day-from-4-year-old is still at the perfect age: coherent, potty trained, and still super snuggly.

    Yea, as far as kids go, 4-5 is pretty damn awesome. It will probably go down as my favorite stage I think.

    Summer arrived the same time I hit the mile 17-21 hills, and at that point it was just FTS survival mode. I hung in there though and passed shitloads of people the last 10K. I also requalified for next year. Overall a very solid race on a tough day. I must have dumped a gallon of water on myself during the race.

    Pro tip, gasoline has better evaporative cooling properties than water.

    Well it was that or Gatorade. Endurance formula though so maybe better cooling properties.

    I got a huge piece of carrot cake I about to dive into.

    By the way, Boston runners say you had a good race if you place higher than your bib number. I was bib 9876 and finished 5496. :rockout:

    Have a Nissan Sentra as a loaner car while mine is getting repaired from a jackass backing into me.

    Holy crap the Sentra is a piece of shit. The brakes and steering are so vague and inconsistent it is actually scary to drive. How can a new car be so bad?

    potato caserole is alright & the fact you can get a solid breakfast (their biscuits suck) and add a decently fried filet of catfish is the only reason I can tolerate it
