Monday's Missives

  • Of all the ill advised tattoos a woman could get the giant angel wings on the back is probably the most ridiculous.
  • I have and always have had 2 red freckles on my chest. I assume they're tiny hemangiomas but I'm not sure.
  • Recently I read a nutrition article written about it's importance in regards to hiking. The tips provided were from a well known hiker who has documented hiking over 50 thousand miles and regularly hikes for weeks to months at a time. There was quite a bit to learn especially his reliance on beans (he ate 120 pounds worth on one epic multi month hike) but what really stood out to me was his weight maintenance. His weight was reported to stay with 2-3 pounds regardless of his activity. I can lose 2-3 pounds or even 7 in a single day when it is hot and I'm really active.
  • Flattering and slightly unnerving: recently a patient reacted with surprise to my meager Arabic vocabulary and language skills by saying, My friend! You speak Arabic?! and with an Iraqi accent!
  • Regardless, he is easily impressed and should get out more often.
  • I just submitted an REI order. When the cart was first built up it contained 13 items.
  • To help me save money I focus less on the high I get from spending and focus on the negative aspects- how bummed I'll be for wasting the money, fear of not having said cash for actual needs etc. Then when I overcome the urge to spend, make good deals and get more of what I need and less of what I want I feel really, really good about that.
  • Jedi inner mind tricks.

I Need Your Opinion Internet Friend

Today I have been Emailing a Woman With Whom I Spend Time. She is trying to rope me into something involving a bunch of wimmin friends of hers and one mutual guy friend. It involves expensive food and probably foo-foo wine or somethin' I just wanted a simple camping/fishing trip for this weekend. After a bunch of questions and answers and more than a few recriminations I finally started replying to her with, "Chicken Butt!".

She later sent me this Email, "That response is annoying and stupid."

Do I double down and start sending her Emails like, The snozzberries taste like snozzberries! or, You don't even know Napoleon! or the classic, Thats what she said! and then grab my rod and reel and backpack and head out into the wild or do I put on my best lace panties and pick a nice wine cooler to sip with the other ladies? Do I dare use the tried and true (but inflammatory) I know you are- but what am I?

I am so confused. Help me Internet friends.

Wisdom Of A chupacabra

Just because in a given situation there is often more than meets the eye and a deeper meaning to whatever it is you are contemplating, doesn't mean every situation is always more complex and has a deeper meaning than what might be assumed at first glance.
