Going through all of these boxes cleaning out a lot of old junk and I found my old ninjutsu gi, a bunch of old hockey tournament medals and my Nation Latin Exam medal. I don't know why my girlfriend thinks I'm a dork.

adelina:
Your medals and ninjutsu gi are the epitome of cool. <3

My beard is almost half a year old. I need to do some trimming soon, but I was waiting on a hair cut to do that so things looked even.

Beard story 1 (about my beard):

I was telling the girlfriend a story about a guy who complimented my beard and contemplated growing his own.

My girlfriend then says, "you incite rebellion".

Me, "You are...

Fingers crossed for the life getting better. And how long do you plan to grow your beard? =)
lokiscoyote:
@mylene I don't know how long I'll grow it, it is in desperate need of a trim though, it's gotten pretty wild. 

I know the term that comes to mind when one thinks of Nimoy is "Live Long and Prosper", but for me it was his other contribution to the development of Vulcan fiction that stuck with me "Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations". As Spock he taught us to look for the emotionless logical solution, but as a man he pushed for us to use compassion.

I am tired, so this may not be as coherent as I'd like it to be or perhaps that will work in my favor. I love my girlfriend deeply, I can't imagine my life without her. But I'm afraid that I'm not the man she needs. We have some fundamental differences on somethings, mostly religion. We can work them out when...

adelina:
First off, you're coherent. Secondly, give yourself a little (A LOT) more credit. Third, if your lady thinks you are the best for her, then don't let a small hurdle like religion hold the two of you back.
adelina:
We're all selfish in some ways, but I think in this situation maybe you're being a tad too selfless.

I've forgotten how to blog it seems. No seriously, I probably spent 10 minutes looking around for the button to start a new blog post.

I can't say exactly why I haven't written in a little over 5 months. It has been a wild five months. In that time we sold my house, put a deposit on house to build and eventually

Smart dog! // You've really had a busy almost half a year since blogging. // Congratulations on so many things! Especially your new knowledge.

When I was 14 or 15, I had been playing hockey for 7 or so years and I had switched from wooden sticks to an aluminum shaft because I kept breaking sticks. Unfortunately I'd also discovered the ability to reshape stick blades to get the shot I wanted, and I was breaking blades left and right. Because the shaping process warped the wood.

We didn't really do much yesterday, still working on the unpacking phase, but we made a dent in things so tonight's menu: Smoked dry aged prime rib roast, chipotle potato salad, grilled corn salad and baked beans... probably need something green with all those carbs eh?

I love it

Now that the house is sold, and the money is in the bank, I'm avoiding doing what I need to do - pay off my hospital bills. I know I am being petulant, but it irks me that I owe so much when they didn't do anything nor did they ever give me a legitimate reason why I collapsed in the first place. I...

Seeing Beck for the first time aug 14! For $5 twilight concert series. 
lokiscoyote:
@adelina I was paying them monthly payments, but it was getting overwhelming due my pay cuts. It is part of what prompted me to sell the house. I just wish I didn't owe what I do, but it's taken care of now. Beck is a great live show! I've seen him twice. I am partial to the overly sexual Midnight Vultures album though and he doesn't seem to play as much of that as he used to.

Everything is done, the house is sold and the money is in the bank. Not sure what the next step is other than sleeping and resting, it's been a rough whirlwind of a month, but we ended up with a good chunk of money more than we expected. I spent 8 years in that house, it's still a bit hard to say goodbye...

@Adelina Thanks, yeah not quite a decade. My puppy (well full grown adult dog) is almost as old as the house, I picked her up from the shelter three days after I moved in. 
lokiscoyote:
@thunderr Thanks, it's mostly good memories of the place and moving on so that makes it easier.

To woo women - or so Robin Williams in Dead Poets society would have you believe. And maybe he's right. I know it hasn't been my looks that has gotten me the women I've been with.

I actually noticed the above picture on facebook while writing this blog post. You see the title blog had been "Very charmed". I do use very too

"Breathe... breathe in the air..."

The appraisal came back, and it must have been good since we are moving forward with the sale. I can breathe again, but not for long. Barring anything crazy the house will be sold on 6/29. So I still have to move the rest of my furniture out of the house, along with all the crap that is in...

@bromopar sounds good, take all the good vibes you can. Buying or selling is a stressful process, but well worth it once you get through the tough part. Best of luck, I'll be praying to the Gods things go smoothly for you. 
bromopar:
Thanks man.  By the sound of things we both need it!

I think I'm sinking. We haven't heard about the appraisal (the last thing holding up the sale of the house) and it's going on two days now. We had to shell out a couple grand to get all of the work done (the water pressure issue was a nightmare). My mom has become very negative as of late, and it is making...
