    my wife tried the dry January thing and made it exactly 6 days. As much as I’m a fan of non alcoholic options, I told her she was torturing herself for no reason because she already moderates with mocktails and I said at that point, dry January is just like a diet — once you go back to your regular scheduled programming, any benefits you gain are just gonna go away anyway.

    My goal this year is to get my 5k time down to a sub 9 min/mile pace, preferably sub-8:30 if I can pull it off. Normally that would be really slow, but given what I’ve had to overcome with Covid, I’m considering that a success. Hopefully I can get my weight down to about 165 (currently 185 at 6 ft tall) but I know that can be so dependent on muscle mass vs body fat vs water weight so I don’t really care, as long as I’m in healthy running shape then I’m happy with whatever.

    I’d also like to complete a 10k. I’ve done those distances before no problem. It used to be my daily training distance. But I’ve just never gotten around to doing an officially sanctioned one, so I’d like to do one.

    i guess, in a way, the goal this year is to finally put Covid behind me and be able to say I recovered. I gotta return to running shape to do that though. I miss the days when I could just walk out the door and do a 22 min 5k like it was nothing. It feels like yesterday, and forever ago at the same time.

    My goal this year is to knock up my wife.

    Should I let her know?

    Up or out, the element of surprise is critical.

    Fucking hell.

    I am drunk. Somewhat pretty drunk at that. I am craving a cheeseburger.

    Skip the dishes delivers that kind of shit.

    I've now placed my first ever skip the dishes order for some mcdonald's cheeseburgers and a chocolate shake.

    I feel dirty... and yet yet I cannot wait until they show up.

    Well, it's better than drunk driving to McDonald's. Props for that.

    Not so fun fact: if you drunk-bicycle to a McDonalds at 2 AM, they will not serve you in the drive-through. They insist on you driving a car. McDonalds encourages drunk driving and they should be ashamed.

    Addendum to your fact: It is Wendy's policy, also.

    So I met the dumbest dog owner ever in our new neighborhood today.

    She has had 2 dogs hit and killed by a train. On two separate occasions. She let them off leash, the chased an animal, and boom, fucking train.

    Once is an accident, twice is stupidity.

    I don’t make resolutions, but I thought back over he last year about what I could have done better. And what came to me was the 3-4 times I had too much to drink. And while I didn’t drive, nor do or say something stupid, I still felt a little disappointment in myself. I like to remain in control, especially when drinking.

    I realized the common denominator, the thing that made the difference in those incidents was whiskey, which in my world is plentiful and often free. So now when I’m anywhere but home, no more liquor of any kind. 3-4 beers, tops, and then switch to non-alcoholic drinks.

    It’s weird because at home it’s never been an issue. One, maybe two cocktails and I’m done. But when at a bar or a friends house, it becomes a problem. So I hope to eliminate the problem without abstaining from alcohol altogether.

    Can confirm Wendy's also has the policy if you walk up to the drive-thru.

    It’s worse than that. They refuse to serve you if you’re sitting on your friend’s shoulders and he’s making car engine noises.

    There is a McDonald's east of Annapolis and the Bay Bridge on 301 that will serve walkup truck drivers that can't fit their semi's in the drive thru. Had to beg the first time, but they got to know me and never gave me any trouble after.
