Hey March 24, 2013

Posted by Sobek in News.

So, uh, what’s goin on?

I learned an important life lesson yesterday. If you’re a deacon and you sit in the front of the church you better stay awake or the pastor will call on you to do the closing prayer. I’m one of those guys that hates public speaking and suddenly getting put on the spot in front of a couple hundred people was kind of rough.

The sermon was good, but I’ve been working a lot and not getting enough sleep when I’m not working. 😦

Well, let’s see…I’m getting ready for a trip to Nashville, TN for my job, I’ve gained back 30 of the 60lbs I lost 2 years ago and I had to go buy fat pants yesterday, Pupster Boy #1 is getting straight A’s in his first year of ‘real’ High School (home-schooled with standard 10th grade curriculum), Boy 2 got his second driving lesson yesterday, my FIL and Step MIL moved in with us 8 months ago, my dog Tackle is 10 and in failing health, and USBank just sent me a new debit card for my unemployment benefits that I cancelled 32 months ago, Mrs. Pupster had shoulder surgery and feels better, but still can’t groom dogs anymore because that was what whacked out her shoulder in the first place.

That’s about it.

What’s new with you, crocodile?

We fluffed the pillows in the doghouse Pupster Suite. We keep looking out the window but no joy.

Bike is in the shop. Bad news; needs an overhaul for 4-barrel carb and new tires.

Sprink guy was out again today to dig up and replace the two valves that he put in last week, both of which turned out to be bad and failed to close. What are the odds?

14 days between posts. That has to be a record, even for IB.

DBS, if you haven’t learned already that you’re supposed to sit in the back of the room if you don’t want to get called on, you might be beyond help.

Pups, you and I might disagree on what the word “content” means.

Life’s okay. California sucks. I’m training for my first marathon, the wife is training for the Boston marathon, and my oldest kiddo can run a mile in about 7:20. I recently finished up a poster for my youngest brother, and I’m trying to come up with an idea for a new one for my oldest brother. I have a cool new pellet gun that looks exactly like an AR-15, so I’m sure someone in Washington wants to throw me in jail for it.

Tushar, you should start a blog. There aren’t enough of those around.

Pups, I gained back half of the 80 I lost years ago, and fought my way back to 200 over the past year.

Goddamn food.

Just finished three 80 hour work weeks and am now vacationing for a few days in Estes Park.

A brief interlude before the next three 80 hour work weeks.

11. sobek - March 26, 2013

I’m trying to put on some weight. Hopefully that statement doesn’t make me too many enemies.

12. digitalbrownshirt - March 26, 2013

I hate you.

13. Pupster - March 26, 2013

I would suggest you stop training for the marathon and start training on the Marathon Bar.

(They still have them?)


It was discontinued in October 1981.

Is old.

Geezer, I’m sorry, it didn’t work out with that thing.

14. Sobek - March 26, 2013

Never heard of a Marathon Bar, but that looks freaking delicious. Alas, that’s the wrong kind of weight.

Muscle weighs more than fat, anyway.

That would explain Wiserbud’s very heavy forehead.
