    I woke up at 3:00 am to impending explosive diarrhea, and have been up since then showering the bowl. I guess that's what I get for making fun of my wife via facetime for being hung over.... (she's not a drinker...) Karma, she's a bish.

    Now at work to oversee the receipt of the steel structure by the steel worker contractor (didn't want to say erectors).

    Their crane isn't certified. Operations halted. They handed me the "paperwork" for the crane. It was an inspection report listing all of the deficiencies that needed to be corrected before the crane could be certified. Exactly NOT what we need to authorise work. I get a blank stare when I tell them it's a problem and shut them down. So...troubling... Pretty sure the guy couldn't read the paper he handed to me.

    Chairing a meeting with said contractor in 1.5 hours. I think I'll let them do the talking. They have some 'splaining to do.

    Good thing I'm being paid handsomely, or coming here would have been a decision to regret...

    Also got this email from the Canadian embassy yesterday:

    Nope, not regretting being here one bit... Sh!t.

    Huh...today is indeed Wednesday. Feels like a Tuesday ffs. OMG wake up.

    Knee surgery scheduled for Feb 5. They got me in quickly thanks to someone else canceling. I'll be riding again (road) in April. Ski season pass pissed away though after about only one day's use. Meh. But, yesterday was a good day.

    Did a quick ride yesterday afternoon. First ride in a while, so it was a bit pitiful. My cranks arm also mostly fell off. I'm not really sure how that happened, but it made for a fun last mile riding one-legged.

    Have work today and just found out yesterday that our monthly target for sales is up 10%. This should be interesting, as the large majority of us were struggling to hit the prior goal. Gotta love it... Higher target in a more restrictive environment.

    Iab - see if they will let you change ownership, or get credit for next year. I know some resorts do that based on injury very early season.

    Morning.

    Still cold as **** here in western NY. The snow advisory only produced 3" of snow here in Rochester but supposedly both Buffalo and Syracuse got hit pretty good. Meh... that's about it.

    It is too damn cold. 16 on the drive in per the car.

    Being sick (again) as of last night and this morning, I went to work just long enough to clock in so I get paid and take care of the 5 minutes of administrative work to make sure conference runs properly. I then promptly walked out the door and returned home. Since I'm not doing anything with patient care these days I figure it's best for me and the hospital in general to keep my sick ass home instead of shedding virii all over the place.

    You should check with the ski area - out here they will refund some of your $$ if you are out for the season due to injury...

    Morning all. Got my oatmeal and tea. Ready to make today my bitch.

    Probably go for a run a little later. Since there isn't anywhere to ride around my work, I started running and dropping weight. Stoked. Did 9 miles last week (2 on Monday, 3 on Wednesday, and 4 on Friday). Hoping to do 9-10 this week. Already did 3 on Monday. Maybe another 3-4 today and Friday.

    Morning Monkys.

    Had a fun night with some random chick off the interwebz. Might see her again soon. Have a date for Thursday, might also be a good time.

    I am starting to wonder if I attract crazy, or is it the majority of ladies in my age group are just simply crazy. Or maybe I am just slow. Who knows, but there are some agressive ladies in the wild. I would call them cougars, but since we are close in age, I don't think that term applies.

    I'm thinking that I might fix my cranks tonight and go for another ride while it's still warm enough to do such.

    If they are your age and single - likely crazy.
    If they are your age and divorced - likely crazy.
    If they are your age and meeting people on the internet - almost certainly crazy.
    If they are your age and *married* - postitively bat$hit crazy.

    HTH.

    Rode this morning at 10 degrees. Got in a 1:05, trails were awesome. So fast, felt like I was in one of those PB videos.

    Going to get a nice 4 hr ride in tomorrow starting at 15 degrees.

    well after 2 tries at repairing the water heater the MFG replaced it under warranty. Only 6 days of using the shower in the RV. We did have to pay for part of the install, our part was to bring all the connections up to current building codes. New water supply lines, run a drain pipe to the outside of the house, different roof vent tubes. But we have hot water again and a new Water Heater with a 12 year Warranty so it all worked out.

    hit a new milestone tonight. The last of the moving boxes are out of the house. More importantly I was able to set up the home gym tonight. The gap between the machines is for the road bikes on wind trainers. All I need now is to put a flat screen TV on the wall in front of everything.
