      So at the young age of 38, I'm thinking I might be showing signs of the impending midlife crisis. Why? Glad you asked. Because I more or less ran off to join the circus. I signed up for wrestling school.

      Oh no, not the amateur stuff boys and girls, but Pro Wrestling. I've learned to take back bumps, face bumps (kinda scary to see the mat coming at your face), and butt bumps (landing in a sitting position is just awkward). I have several bruises and handprints on my chest where fellow classmates have chopped the crap out of me (although, admittedly, I kinda enjoy the chops...I know, I have issues).

      Tonight, I had my in-ring debut. I'm an evil henchman to one of the actual wrestlers. Which is fine as that's all I really wanted anyway--I do have enough sense to not do the truly grueling stuff. I even got to help jump one the good guys (they're called faces, btw, whereas I would be known as a heel). If I can get my hands on some pics, I'll post 'em for ya.

      Of course, now that the ol' midlife crisis ball has apparently started to roll, I guess this means I need to start saving money so I can get that super expensive sports car that shows folks that I'm still verile. Oh and I suppose I'll have to skip the starter wife and go straight to the trophy wife.

      On second thought, maybe I'll just lying about my age -- this getting old stuff is starting to sound like a too much work.

      Just found out that apparently I'm going to be in NYC next week and then Torrance, CA the week after. If any of y'all are in the area and want to meet for drinks/dinner let me know.

      Oh and here's some updates of what I've been up to since I last posted: blah, blah, blah, work, blah, blah. (Sadly, that's pretty much accurate).

      Here's a lttle piece of happiness for you guys. Seriously, no one can feel depressed when faced with with something this bouncy. Besides, who doesn't like cornbread?

      Feel free to get up and dance a little if you like, I won't tell.

      ...until I found out it was just that I was in Nebraska.

      Gotta love Little Bill Daggett.


      Work has finally slowed to point where I can take a bit of time to catch up. And I don't mean just look at the pretty pictures of y'all, but actual journal reading. You people are prolific with much happenings in the past 6 months. (Wow, I didn't realize it was that long!)

      It seems some folks have left for good, some are on hiatus, some are doing well and some have hit a few splinters on the banister of life. Congratulations to some and condolences to others. Mix and match as neeeded.

      So what have I been up to you may ask? I think I can some up the exciting stuff with one picture...

      60863_439186329582_701589582_4934421_836

      So let's breakdown this picture.

      1. Because the "grow a moustache" election went poorly, I'd thought I'd circumvent the will of the people by growing a beard. That'll teach the people a thing or two! Unfortunately, the main lesson to the people is that I can't really grow a beard. My friends at work really seem to hate it so naturally I'm keeping it. Behold the power of spite!

      2. I've been attending PCW (a local pro-westling show) a lot. So much so that I am practically a part of the cast. In the picture, I (along with my friend Andy) posed with the heel announcer Kurt Kilgore (the guy in tux). The guy is hysterical and will say some pretty outlandish crap to get a reaction from the crowd. Naturally, being a jerk, I gravitated to the heels myself and am pretty much an obsequious Kilgore fan. If you're not sure what an "obsequious fan" is, just imagine most of Hannity's callers as an example.

      3. Look at the vest! I should change my xbox tag from CMS HEX to CMS PIMP! Or, maybe not.

      Other than than that, life has pretty much been about the whole nose to the grindstone thing.

      Hopefully it won't be another half year between posts.

      So that whole thing about downtime and having more Roosterteeth family time?

      Yeah, big lie.

      Of course, it doesn't help that my laptop is temporarily (hopefully) KO'd. Totally my fault though. Let's just say I love my laptops much like Ike Turner used to love Tina.

      But on the plus side I'm playing dress up for a minor league rasslin' event here in Atlanta. I'll be a Witness for the Demigod Mason (sorta of a nod to JBL's old persona) . As for me, I'll be dressed like those Latter Day Saints that come to your house at 8 in the morning. Needless to say we're the bad guys.

      Just remember: Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

      Wow. Finally some downtime (never thought I'd be happy about an IT snafu). How the hell are y'all?

      Its been a while since the last post, I know, but work has been crazy (albeit I'd rather have it like this than waiting for a project). Add in busy weekends and you get a recipe for roosterteeth invisibility.

      Given my workload, I've been getting crap for sleep for the past couple of weeks, but apparently that doesn't stop the dreaming about you guys. Which is just weird. People I know for decades? Never dream about them. People I've never met ever, except via this electronic box? Practically regulars in my head.

      Yeah, its another dream post.

      Anyway, two nights ago I dreamt Finch and I were discussing music. Actually Finch wasn't really saying anything comprehensible, I just "knew" what he was saying. My response was always the EMI raspberry (less Sex Pistols, more PUSA). Admittedly though, that is as good as a response as I could probably give in real life (one reason I like this site is because there are lots of folks with an amazing breadth and depth of musical knowledge and I love being introduced to knew music).

      The Finch dream sort of did a bad edit segue to a college campus. Actually it was the same college campus I always dream about--do any of the rest of y'all ever have reoccurring "sets" in your dreams? I was walking down a flight of stairs, wearing a rather nice long cape (whatever, its a dream), when Blue jumped on my back and asked for a piggy-back ride to our next class. I don't recall what we discussed but I do remember she teased me a lot for being old. (And in hindsight, she probably messed up my cape. The nerve of some people! Now I'll have to find a dreamland dry cleaner!)

      Whew, that's all. Rambling post is rambling.

      Hopefully the schedule will be becoming less onerous in the next couple of weeks and I can have more of a presence here.

      smiley12.gif you guys!

      I've been told that due to budget cuts there will be no more monies allocated to continuing education for coders/reimbursement specialists. We'll have to manage CEUs on our own. Well crap - that sucks. My certification requires more than the nurses, doctors, or radiation therapists annually. Which makes sense - we have to code for all of them.

      I'll take you up on the dinner if I'm ever up that way. Most seminars/training seem to be in Atlanta. Why is that?

      So still feel the need for an ethical fix?

      What was the result of that motion?

    • JediJesus87

      9 years ago

      Yeah, but even trivial details get out of hand fast. The journal was inspired when I was at a Mr. Empanada's and the TV was blaring about how they want women to come in for mammograms instead of doing self examinations since it's way more effective. The owner started yelling at the TV that Obama was taking away mammograms and ruining our country and felt the need to ask me who I voted for after his long winded rant.

      In the Dome you gave advice on how to get through the incredibly itchy phase of growing a beard. I'm on week 2 and should closing in on that part again. I'd be awfully grateful if you could pass on your wisdom again.


      Oh, sure!

      Shampoo and condition it in the shower. (I suggest some super serious heavy moisturizing conditioner.)

      After the shower, use a leave-in conditioner. (Again, a super serious one.)

      It will still be a little itchy, I don't think you can completely avoid that, but it won't be at the completely unbearable want-to-cut-your-face-off itchiness.

      They sell special beard-conditioners and stuff I'm sure, but any hair conditioner will do.

    • Fireball DRUNK

      Nope, wasn't me.

      As for perfume, I only wear a VERY light pear scented splash or Miracle by Lancome.

      If you happen to smell one of those, then I'm probably close by. smiley8.gif

      1. Might you be able to work out a different pay schedule with the insurance co.? [Probably not, but it couldn't hurt to ask] It's Univera through Healthy New York, so no.

      1. Do you meet the criteria to get a deferment? Unemployed. Yup.

      2. Doesn't deferment take some steps to achieve? Instant with a phone call to put a stop on it.
