The Odds

FYI, It was a pick of me in a NORMAL V neck.
I'm heading out for a date with a 29yo MD. It's our fist meetup and so far I'm not impressed with the texting. I can't explain it but it feels like the slick salesman creeper feeling. The odds are 70/30 he'll walk in and motorboat me. I don't know why I keep entertaining the idea of dating guys in their 20's! I think I'm hoping that they'll have the vigor of a 23yo with the maturity of a 40yo. It's looking bleak.

I really want one of these tanks but the only place I could wear it
is around the house and at the gym. And! Even then I'd be a little embarrassed since I'm not really sure my snatch is all that great.

I did purchase a jump rope from RX Smart Gear. I've only tried jumping with it once but I did more consecutive double unders with that rope than I have done in the past year with the ropes at my Box. If you're having trouble getting DUs try buying a rope made specifically for you. I was able to get a length specific fro my height and a rope weight contoured for my ability. Plus!! They come in crazy fun colors! I went with the Greyt White handles (they were on sale) a bright blue cable.

A Tale in Text

I'm in green. Mark6.0 is in gray.

Saturday, Dec 14th a full week after canceling on me.
At the "Why do you make this so difficult?" I was just going to walk away but then I talked to my mother. She convinced me to attempt to sit down and hash it out and maybe we could get past this. To her, he seemed rather interested. He has continued to try to date me over the past 9months.
"Why do you make this so difficult?" has become a joke between a few of my friends and myself.

Calling me "Sugar Plum" is not going to make canceling on me for the 1000x any softer.
That's a sarcastic, "Of course." At this point I'm out! The only question is RETALIATION??


Yes, that was me. I can't tell if this is creepy and block him or just take it as a compliment and move on?

Full circle

 And now my blog has come FULL CIRCLE!!
The GUY who caused me to start this blog, found me on one of the dating sites and sent an email. We've actually been pretty civil and talked running and a bit about our lives. I have no idea if he's still "down sized" or not. I kind of want to ask.....

I got several emails this week that were troubling.
1) asked if I gave good head. Mind you none of the words in the email were spelled correctly! I reported this one to the site and was assured "justice would be swift."
2) When did I become a cougar?! I'm not 50!!

3) Some one asked me to tell them about my garden and all I can think about is The Bloggess's Lady Garden! Needless to say I haven't replied because I can't decide if he wants to know how trim I keep it or what flowers I harvest.

I swear there was more I wanted to talk about but that's what happens when you start an entry one day and then try to finish it the next.


Sunday, December 8, 2013


Let's face it. My job has long hours and I do most of my life stuff, ie cooking, cleaning, errands, on the weekends. I'm up early everyday, running, biking, CrossFitting, so I go to bed early. I have a demanding cat (saying that may categorize me as "cat lady"). All of this leaves me little time to "hang out" and meet someone. Plus, I'm not really the bar fly type and I don't want "that guy" either. Therefore, I do my dating almost exclusively online. I'm on 3 dating sites, all have the same profile and the same pictures. We email a couple of times, then we agree to meet and one of us gives the other our phone number. It's just easier to come to an agreement on where and when via text or voice.

And now we get into one of my pet peeves. Ninety-eight out of a hundred times I get asked for a picture. I have all my profile pictures on my phone and since they're already online I send one of those and then ask for one in return, which I set as their pic in my contacts. This makes it infinitely easier to keep track of conversations and dates. I  can link a convo with a face much better than with name.

I thought this was effing hilarious, he did not.
Now, when they ask for a pic I know they don't want a pic that they've already seen. I KNOW what type of picture they want and I don't ever send those. I think its rather ballsy to ask for a topless picture from a girl you have not yet met in person or have only seen once or twice. Plus, I just don't like the idea of having pictures of my body out there. My refusal to send naked pictures doesn't go over well for the majority of the askers. This, then, tells me a lot about the guy and I have nothing to do with him any more.

Sometimes, the guy will play it cool at first but then ask randomly through out the "relationship." I find this extremely annoying. If I say no once asking me repeatedly is not going to change my mind and if anything it's going to get you a picture of my tonsils. I had one guy say, "no, send me a body pic." So, he got my tonsils. He didn't specify which part of my body.

Edited, had included face and penis.
Then there are those who just send a naked picture of themselves thinking you will reciprocate. That's a big fat negative! It's very shocking to receive a text notification, you expect it to be a picture of something funny or their cat or christmas decorations and instead it's naked mirror shot! I DID NOT ASK FOR THIS!! I HAVE NOT EVEN SEEN IT IN PERSON YET!! You are not turning me on.

In some ways technology has made dating so much easier. But, it comes with it's own pitfalls. I doubt people just getting to know each other were asked for naked pics before smartphones were around.

Sorry, there's no real conclusion here. I'm just venting.

I started back to Crossfit this past Thursday, Nov 21. And sweet baby Jesus did it hurt my lungs. That days WOD was 21-15-9 14# wall balls and burpees. This followed 3-3-3-3-3 Squat cleans (100#!). I finished the WOD and held my own against all the boys, finishing in 7:01. Typically, I don't have lay on the floor following a workout but that day I laid there and tried to catch my breath. My lungs and throat burned for a good 3 hours after that.

I also, started back  running. Saturday was my first run after the Rock and Roll 1/2 in the beginning of  October. I did it on the treadmill with easy sections followed my sprints. I only made it a mile but at least I've started. I did another mile Tuesday and 2 miles today, Thanksgiving. Not exactly a Turkey Trot but I'll take it.

The real cause of my pain was Crossfit on Monday! 3-3-3-3-3 Over head squats
(100#) followed by 25-20-15 Front squats, Ring push ups and double unders. I scaled my WOD by doing 80# front squats, knee ring push ups and 3x single unders. I finished in 14:28. This one didn't hurt until the next day.....and the next....and the next. Yes, my quads hurt from all the squats but what REALLY hurts is my pecks and shoulders! Those damn ring push ups killed them!

Turkey Trot

This is actually something I fear on a daily basis!
This might be the first year since I started running that I don't do a Turkey Trot. I'm very torn about this. Half of me wants to say, "eh, do it next year. This year has been rough, you had surgery, various aches and pains, and long work days. Plus, you haven't been running since the RnR 1/2 marathon. You'll die out there!"

The other half say, "Eh, it's just a Turkey Trot. What better way to start running again."

Also, I think this is the first time that I haven't had a race scheduled at all.

Dating Update

I'm pretty sure my surgery ended my relationship with Hot Dan. Admittedly, there wasn't that much of a relationship there. Yes, we had fun together and he could be really sweet. But he was mostly drunk. A lot. And he wasn't much fun when he was drunk. He did quite a lot of complaining and talking. We had one date where I had to tell him to "Just stop talking." On three separate conversations. There are things you think and say and then there are things you think and never say. He couldn't make that distinction. There's other things, not worth going into now though.

He was sweet, though. He was one of the few who contacted me through out my recovery to see how I was doing. But texting has trailed off and he "may have to work this weekend."
The above was written 11/13/13.

 Now, we are in a whole new place. Hot Dan and I had a texteration this past Sunday but nothing really came of it.

Mark 6.0 has made a reappearance. He has periodically messaged me through text or facebook but nothing really comes of it. Just a "Hi, how are you?" thing. But this past Wednesday I got a text from him informing me that he's moved to my area and would like to catch up. It's been 6 days and nothing has been officially set up. We had soft plans for Sunday but he "got sick." Really doesn't surprise me with him.

Original Mark, is almost always in the background. Mostly just texterations but the occasional drink when we're in the same city. Anyways, I got a text from him saying, "I somewhat miss you."

I don't know what will happen with any of these situations but I always keep my options open.

The Loss of my Tonsils, Part 2

Mostly what I ate. Down about 8#s.
Soon after waking my family came in and I was moved to a pre-op room because they needed the bed. I was promptly over come with nausea but was allowed to leave once the anti-nausea meds kicked in. The rest of that day is quite a blur. I was in a lot of pain, more than I thought I'd be in. And, the pain meds they gave me barely touched the pain. Luckily, they gave me A LOT and I could double down when needed. (Sorry, mom. You probably didn't know that.) I went through 10 bottles of children's Tylenol in 10 days! It's odd, but I swear the syrup soothed my throat.

Tuesday passed. At one point I thought that I either had something stuck in my eye or my cats fur was extra bouyant. Turns out, it was just the "fog" from the humidifier I had in my room. I made my mom watch American Horror Story, insisting she would like this season. This had detrimental effects when I watched the most recent episode this week, "WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!?!" I don't remember the two episodes I watched last week! Ate mostly baby food, tried scrambled eggs.

My fave sorbet!
Wednesday was marked by a visit from my gas company and the refridgerator repair guy. OH yeah, I got a new fridge that Saturday and it was broken within hours. Luckily, my dad was there to help me deal with the fridge guy. It just seems odd that he couldn't request a new fridge and I, in my drugged state, would have to go to the store and order a new one.Tried soft mac and cheese.

Thursday included an outing. I went to the store I bought my fridge from. The sales guy there had a bit of an attitude. I tried as hard as possible to put the fear of god in them about my busted fridge, which is quite difficult when you can barely whisper, see straight, or walk. I think my threat to never buy from them again did the trick. I had my replacement in 3 days. Odd, since it took a month to get the original fridge....

Friday I was up and about a bit more. I didn't spend as much time in bed but still wasn't skipping around.

Saturday I was able to do somethings around the house. Just some picking up, a load of laundry, refill my new fridge.

Sunday was the first day I went without pain meds during the day! And, the day I realized I needed my house to myself again. Since, I wasn't taking the pain meds during the day I could drive if needed. And, so, my parents left. I ATE PANCAKES!!!
Got through all 3 seasons!

Monday, was painful. My scabs started to come off and if I was going to bleed out today would be it. This is the most disgusting thing I have ever gone through. And I've now gone through it twice. Once before with mono. Your throat hurts when you swallow and you can feel something like a  booger hanging in your throat. I had to force harder food (like PB&J sandwich) down in the hopes that it would grab the scab and tear it off. At one point the scab hung on too long and it really got to me that I almost threw up. I, also, had to drive to Walgreens to get more liquid tylenol. At the register I realized I didn't have any way to pay for it.
Tuesday, not much. Decided I was done staying at home and worked on my doctor signing a release to allow me to go back to work.

Wednesday, release signed

Thursday/Friday, back to work, 1/2 days. Smaller scabs peeling. Still eating baby food but mostly because I have it and don't want to waste it.

The loss of my Tonsils part 1

Well, it's finally happened. My tonsils are no longer with me. I have been tonsil free now for a week and a half and it really hasn't been bowls of ice cream.
This is after a week. It was much grosser.

It started on November 3rd when my mother arrived and I had my "Last Meal." WHoow doooggy! that meal was delish! Pumpkin ravioli, wedge salad, fillet with these amazing potatoes. And of course dessert. Chocolate cake with Black raspberry and chocolate chunk ice cream on top (this ice cream happens to be my sisters favorite). It was an amazing dinner. I wish I had a picture of it. This all had to be eaten before 8pm. I had to be food free for 12 hours prior.

I woke the day of the surgery at 7am so I could shower, in antibacterial soap, and make my way to the out patient surgery center. My apt was for 8:45. When I was taken back by the pre-op nurse I started to get a little scared. I went through all the pre-op stuff, when did I last eat? When did I last take my vitamins? What meds was I on? Can I pee in this cup? I had some questions of my own, When can I go back to crossfit? Can I use Cepacol spray? Can I get my tonsils back? Am I preggers? The one about the tonsils threw her. She said she doubted it but I would need to ask the doctor. Btw, I am not preggers.

Then the anesthesiologist came in. He went through the pre-op with me. What meds I was going to be given and how I would be knocked out. What would happen after. He asked if I had any questions. Of course I did! Can I get my tonsils back? He doubted it. They needed to go to pathology but I might be able to get the report. I should ask my surgeon. I was then given anti-nausea med and a vicodin and hooked up to an IV. By the time my parents and sister came back I was feeling a little better.

Thanks to my mom, I had a humidifier to help keep things moist.
Now my surgeon came in and went over the procedure with me and my family. After which he asked if I had questions. YES!! Yes, I do. Can I use cepacol spray? No. Can I use cepacol lozenges? What is this weird obsession you have cepacol? Do you own stock? No, just trying to numb the throat. Now, can I get my tonsils back? I have the means to destroy them when I'm done with them if that helps you make you a decision here. Yeah, he basically stared at me as my sister cackled, my mom moaned and my dad rolled his eyes and said, "Just tell him why and what you do." See I have this strange thought that my tonsils are chock full the white tonsil gunk that come oozes out of them. I just want to cut one open and see what's inside. I do research and can dispose of them in the bio hazardous waste. If I can't get them back could you just take a picture after they're out and then after you cut one open? I will say this, he was very tactful in his refusal. I believe he said something along the lines of I was his first priority in the OR and he wouldn't have time to take pictures. Ok, it was a bit  nicer than that but that's what it boiled down to. Or, it's what the viccodin heard. He gave me one last curious look and left.

Now it was real and I said I was a little nervous. Some one passing heard and came back with a wirery bracelet for me. And now I was being wheeled into the OR. There were some very lovely nurses in there. They made me feel very relaxed. The last thing I remember saying was, "Oh, it's all fuzzy......" Then I woke up in A LOT of pain! Do you know they make you eat with in minutes of waking? And it's jello! Not even proper ice cream!

I've been doing the Lurong Paleo Challenge now for about two months. It officially ends November 10th and all measurements and the last 3 WODS need to be in by then. The last 3 WODS for the challenge were to repeat the first 3 and see if you could get better results. My Crossfit place is doing the WOD 8 this Friday and then 9 and 10 next week. I, unfortunately, will not be in fighting form and would probably get reprimanded by my doctor if I tried to do them then. Not to mention what my mother would do if I even mentioned going. So......I need to do everything that's left this week.

I went in today planning on doing 8 with 9 on Thursday and 10 on Friday. I adjusted that since the gym is doing 8 on Friday, I'd like to do it with everyone else. I therefore, did 9 today and will do 10 tomorrow. I also did my measurements today. I kind of wished I could do them at the end of next week since I'll be on an all liquid diet and probably will have better numbers.

ANY WAYS!! I was a little disappointed today with my WOD, not gonna lie. It was 100 burpees and 100 18# kettlebell swings. You could break it up anyway you wanted and came with a 12min time cap. I WAS SOOOO CLOSE!!! I broke mine up in 20s, 20 burpees-20 KB, 20 burpees-20 KB, etc. I had 4 KBs left when time was called. I was so mad since I had finished all of it at the start of the challenge. OR, so I thought. I just put my results in and I, in fact, did not finish last time. I failed to finish 27 burpees. This time I finished all my burpees and only missed 4 KB swings!!

Truth be told, I  haven't been that good at following this paleo lifestyle this time around. Dates, weddings, long work days, work lunches, and more dates have gotten in the way. I, therefore, did not expect to lose much weight or change much physically. I was pleasantly surprised when I went down in the areas I wanted to go down in and up in the areas I wanted to go up in.

Even if I don't win anything in the actual challenge I think I still win!!

Rock and Roll Series

This past Sunday I participated in the Cleveland Rock and Roll Half Marathon. It was a blast! The course was awesome. The bands were great. The weather was perfect. I did come in 25min off my best time but I at least finished and with the summer I had I'll take it. Also, for the first time in my running "career" they gave out ice water soaked towels. IT WAS THE BEST INVENTION EVER! My only peeve is that I REALLY wanted a beer at the end and the line was crazy long. I would definitely be up for doing this run again next year.


So the old new guy will soon be the old guy. He doesn't know it yet but I just don't feel any attraction to him. It could be the way he bobs his head, the fact that he repeats everything I say, that he drives like a grandma with cataracts, or that he reminds me of Chris Farley, a person whose films I have never enjoyed watching. I do feel really bad about this. He came to my race this past Sunday! And brought me flowers! He is nice but I have no desire to go out with him again, let alone kiss him. (This post was originally written on Monday, I ended it with him on Tuesday.)

I have however, gone out on two dates with Hot Dan! And there is chemistry here, boys and girls. It might help that he in fact is hot. Don't get me wrong, the guy is also super sweet. He is a union carpenter/personal trainer. He was into MMA and now just works out. Doesn't run much but says if I'm willing to run with him he'll take it up. He is not into politics but as my mother pointed out, that might not be a bad thing. I can mold him! The only real hitch I have is that he seems to drink a bit much. And he realizes it. He says he's going to cut back, "because you deserve better." Also, according to him, I am intimidating. I found that to be a shock. I don't think of myself as that. Yes, I know what I want and I go after it. Yes, I am educated. But I think I'm fairly nice.
In fairness I have no idea what he had before. It could have been nothing.

 Anywhoodle, third date is this Saturday and he wants to make me "dinner and cuddle." And, I don't think that is a euphemism.

Tuesday, October 1, 2013


I can't believe I haven't written anything in two weeks!

Let's see...... The last guy I wrote about went bye bye. I still don't know what happened. I have half a mind to text and just ask. Who goes on 3 dates and then just ignores some one?
BUT!! There's a new one.

I couldn't lift my left arm last Tuesday and because of it I missed a week of Crossfit, had 4 chiropractic appointments, a massage, bought a new bed and failed to even start the Akron 1/2 marathon.

I'm feeling better and will run the Cleveland Rock and Roll 1/2 marathon this weekend. New Dude insists that he is coming to watch.

Lurong Paleo Challenge is.....a challenge. For the most part I'm doing great. Friday and Saturday nights are bit rough. I'm technically only allowed on glass of red wine. Who can drink only one? No beer. And it is amazingly difficult to be strict paleo on a date. I hate trying to explain it to new guys. 

And, work is chugging along.

My Burning Thighs

091113, 96cal row 60#
I'm back to Crossfit! I've been in 3 times since last Wednesday. The first day back I got a, "Where the hell have you been?" from my coach. He then proceeded to whip me into shape!

091313, 110#BS, 7+15, pu/rd
It took me 3 days to be able to walk normally after Fridays punishing squat session. I was praying as I walked in this morning I would not have to do much legs. HA! Squats again with wall balls and box jumps! I work on two different floors and am constantly running between them. Today, though, I've periodically taken the damn floor.

091613, level 1 15:45
I've also signed up for another paleo challenge. The last one worked out pretty well, so I'm excited about this one. It is a little stricter and goes for 8 weeks. The last one of which happens to be when I'm having my tonsils out. I refuse to call it cheating though, if all I can eat is bananas and ground up oatmeal! I did try to buy organic wholesome baby food but they all contain some form of grains! Day one though, so far so good!

Thursday, September 12, 2013


My appointment with my ENT was yesterday. It went swimmingly! Both he and his Dr. Sidekick were personable, listened to me, and talked to me as an equal. All things I like in my doctors. It didn't hurt that they were also attractive. Dr. Sidekick especially. At what age is it ok to shamelessly flirt with your doctors? I can totally see me saying, "Oh, your hot. Maybe you should come be my home nurse," or something along those lines while under the anesthesia. When I was discussing my snoring and crap in my tonsils with him I wanted to say, "You know..... I'm single and this really puts a cramp in my dating. If you take them out then YOU are pretty much guaranteed a quiet nights sleep." But I didn't. Don't worry, I have plenty of time to make a display of my attraction. I have to go in 2 more times, not including for surgery, where I will definitely make my intentions known!

I AM worried about the after care. My sister has volunteered to come help Monday and Tuesday. But, the last time she "took care of me" she let me fall face first into a row of theater seats. IT WAS DAMN FUNNY, though. She just stood there with a look of panic on her face and said, "it all happened so fast!" My mom has already said she's coming for the day of surgery and maybe the day after. But, she still works and can't take too much time off. My father on the other hand, is retired and as surgery will be in November, not playing golf. I will say this. My father is loving and great as............say a handy man, coach, drinking buddy, cat/dog sitter, computer repairer, milk tester, weird noise investigator, car fixer, dad. But he is LOUSY as a nurse. When I was in a wheel chair he was pretty good for a day or two, after that I had to get my own water and JUST
SUCK IT UP! That is actually a philosophy I do adhere to but there is only so much one can suck up and I fear the first 3-4 days is gonna be rough.

Monday, September 9, 2013


I tried. I did not come to the decision lightly.....It was a long, internal conversation.

I woke up like any other race day. Excited. Ready to make my mark. I was calmer than last 1/2IM. Until I hit the elevator, where someone said, "Did you hear? They moved the swim." I knew they might move it. Hoped they wouldn't. But they did. I understand the move. We had crazy winds and the lake was horrendous with rip currents. The harbor was much calmer. But still! If anyone has raced or done TRIs you know the slightest change in what you expect to happen can change what actually happens.

 I had a plan for the swim. It went 1)go to transition and set up. 2)walk to swim start (outside my hotel) 3)hand my clothes off to my mom 3)get into my wetsuit 4)swim to T1. Instead, I set up my transition left my sweatpants at T1, walked the 0.6miles to the new swim start, wait the 1.5 hours till my wave, toss my sweatshirt in the trash, struggle into my wetsuit, and start my swim. Which did not go well. It felt harder than any swim I've ever done. I had to stop and help another swimmer get assistance. And I took in a lot of water (I hope I get another tonsil infection just in time for the ENT). Once I got out I had to find my FLIPFLOPS!! and run the 0.6miles back to T1 with a wetsuit that weighed 8xs heavier.
Swim:56:07 T1: 13:33

Then I had to bike. I thought I was doing really well at mile 10. For some reason I thought I had done 10 miles in 20min. I thought I was going to be a rockstar after doing the math and realizing I would be done in 2hours. And then I REALLY looked at my watch and realized it was 10miles in 40min. And that's with the 15mph wind at my back! At mile 25 I thought I was done. I was ready to give up. But then there was this aid station at mile 30 with rice krispy treats and I thought, "Laura, quit talking crazy! Of course you're going to finish this!" But then I got foot cramps. Like crazy. I had to get off 3 times to flatten out my feet and give them a bit of a rest. Bike: 4:28:54

When I finally made it back to T2, I dismounted and had a sharp pain in my left hip. I had to make a decision. Continue or not. I took all my bike gear off and changed into my run gear. I walked around T2 for a minute or two, watching runners come in and runners go out. My feet still hurt as did my hip. I then sat down took off my chip and cried as I handed it to an official saying I was taking a DNF.

Looking back on it today, I wonder if I made the right choice. Yes, my hip aches but it felt fine after walking back to the hotel. If I had just started the run would it have gone away? Perhaps it was just how I was sitting on my bike? Yes, my muscles ache but not like last year. I can still walk normally. If I had just started the run would my feet have felt better in the different shoes?

I know that had this summer been like last summer I would have powered through. I would have had the mental stamina to push myself and talk myself into continuing. Had my training been there, I would have a new medal.

Friday, September 6, 2013


We are 48hrs away from the start of the 1/2IM. And, oddly, I'm not panicking. Yeah, I'm kind of worried. I know I can't change anything. I could back out but I'd rather die or crawl to the finish than do that. I'd even settle for a DNF (did not finish) before a DNS (did not start).

Also, I've been seeing this guy.....well, seeing is an over statement. It's been a week and we've gone out 3 times. Which is crazy for me! I'd like it to last a bit (if not longer). I've yet to find an annoying habit. We've eaten together and he doesn't hum. He has all his teeth, a good job, education, a house. He's kind to animals, liberal. Basically, he's FUCKING perfect. Which scares the shit out of me. I don't remember how to do the casual dating thing with a guy I like. Usually, I just jump into relationship mode but I think I need to take it slower with this one. Also, what if he's seeing someone else? This is a complete possibility since we met through online dating and that's all a numbers game. When do you have that convo?

I'm sort of feeling him out on short/long term dating. I asked about a date two weeks from now. It involves tickets and a small amount of commitment. He's going to get back to me on it.

Thursday, August 29, 2013


I have to admit, I'm starting to panic. The REV3 1/2 Iron Man distance Triathlon is in 9 days. The 1/2IM I did last year at Poconos was really hard on my body (and mind) and YET I feel I was better prepared for that one. When I signed up for this race I had settled into my new job and thought the summer would be like any other.


My tonsils with pus
Work this summer consisted of long hours that left me too exhausted to train for all of July and most of August. I thought I'd get back into training a couple of weeks ago but you know how vacations are. And then I got tonsilitis this past week that dampened my energy.

I finally got a 10 mile run in this past Saturday but it was really rough. I could blame the tonsils but I know that's not completely it. Today's 2 mile run was awful.

 I did get a mile swim in last night. So, that's something.

I only want to finish. Ok, and beat my time last year but I'd be happy beating it by just 5min.

Friday, August 9, 2013


This week has really tested my self confidence. I was stood up twice. I HAVE NEVER BEEN STOOD UP!! I did have a guy cancel on me after I replied no to "Are you going to put out tonight."

This is most likely true.
One guy this week said he was in the bar but then texted that he needed to fix his aunts downed electric. A possibility since we did have storms that day and he is an electrician. But, it reminds me of this gem (above video, I've given up trying to align everything)....except I didn't get crab cakes. I did get a tasty pineapple beer. That I paid for.
