Out of the Blue

It's off to the vet this morning. Gunnar is going to get his first puppy check-up, and Hudson the wonder dog can have a follow-up to her ailing foot. The weird thing there is her foot no longer seems to bother her at all... after getting splinted for what was diagnosed as a hairline fracture of the toe, our indomitable pup managed to remove the splint within a few days, and has not seemed the worse for wear since. I guess we'll learn today whether the toe thing was a mis-diagnosis, or if it simply managed to heal up after all of four days of being immobilized.

Last time I went go-carting with some friends was a few years ago. They had some electronic device to govern the speed, so people could not go to fast.

The best part was that each cart has a transponder and after the race you get to see a printout of who won, lap times, average speed, etc.

See, now that would be the big selling point for me. I love statistics and numbers used in that way. Plus, like you said, bragging rights, and a way to prove it.


Wow. I guess I thought everyone had these around their places. We have 3-4 right here in the Minneapolis area. One of them shut down, but before it did, it had mini-bike races. Those mini sports bikes. They were awesome. I got to buddy up with a few of them cause I wanted to buy one and join the league....but never got around to it. Was able to ride them a few times around the track, it was insane. The mini bikes would go 2x as fast as the cars. It was hilarious to see grown men on these tiny little bikes going 40-50 mph on the straights. Knees up in the air. Awesome.....pure awesome.

It would be cool if on the printout it also charted a map of the path your car took in the race. Just because.

Wow, 3am, I should probably get to bed now.

Any pictures of wrecks?

No, we're just talking go-carts here. Lots of spinouts - not me though. The best part was that each cart has a transponder and after the race you get to see a printout of who won, lap times, average speed, etc.



Ok, I hate to brag... BUT...

I won the first race although I only had the third best single lap time. Basically just by not spinning out.

So after the race everyone's talking about which carts are best (#10 by far) and which one is worst (#6). We're all trash talking about how we're going to tackle each other trying to get the best carts. Meanwhile, cart #6 sucks so bad it's pulled off to the side... until another cart konks out and it's brought back in.

Guess who gets stuck with it?

Guess who wins with it.

Actually it wasn't all that bad, but I'll never admit that to the guys at work and give up my trash talking privileges!

I initially wrote up a really long rant about how Americans are just like non-Americans, and can't we all just get along?

But then I decided it wasn't really worth it. So, here's this instead:

Go home, troll-bag.


Moog is wrong but he's not a troll. Americans are not like the rest of the world, you just harbour their criminals. Moog didn't like the Ebay comments. He has an opinion. If, bless him, that opinion means he doesn't like Americans then... you know it's not really fair to call people living in the US, Americans since there are obviously North Americans, South Americans and Central Americans. It's particularly the people in the United States of America that he's refering to, so there would need to be another fitting nickname for them. How about United States Of Americans. A little unwieldy. How about United States-ers. No, still too much. I know. US-ers! You're all US-ers, aren't you? Hey, that looks a little like "USERS". Perfect then.

So far, so good -- the kiddo slept through the night for once, I got a nifty toy in WoW, and -- best so far -- I got an offer on a job I interviewed for last week. And for more than I was asking.

Glad to hear you are having such a great day. Hope it translates into an even better year!
