I'm not sure if you can land a jet on a field.

And you didnt visit!?
Had no idea at all I'd end up there today.

It was pretty cool too, our client had a son racing in the ST class, and he's getting scouted out by some higher up racing teams. His goal is probably to drive NASCAR, says that has the best salaries and chances to earn the most money. The kid's 19, small as a jockey, but already one steeley eyed dude, and he can drive! Very cool day, but now my head is burned to a crisp!

Last rehearsal tonight before our cd release party. Layout for the back and front panel are done as well as for the cd itself, and should be pressed this week. Also, got homeowner's insurance yesterday for the new home. Everything is falling into place.

Except for the place-setting.



Went to a party at my boss's boss's place. My boss's boss, another coworker, and I proceeded to make fun of Maryland where FWB lives (she was at the party, too).

Holy shit just got given an awesome idea on a platter.

I talked to a friend about how I want to take my students on an excursion to Melbourne as sort of an exposure trip, must have been 3 months ago.

Talking to her today she mentioned that her mother, for example, would be happy to front up some money to get the kids in the city (my students are incredibly poor, as in, can't afford pens and paper for school poor).

Our next unit in Humanities (SOSE) is economics. So the brain starts clunking away and I think:

Why not give them a challenge to raise funds to go on an excursion to Melbourne for a day or two?
Give the class a lot of structure in terms of what's needed when, but see how we can operate together and what we can achieve and raise funds to go to see. We could also visit some local stores there (chocolate stores) and a few other places to really tie into education and experience, but the process of a longer project would be really beneficial for them - I think I could easily get 100 people to donate $25 - so just teaching the students how to tap into charity, understand money and budgeting and organisation, reach out to a community through enterprise and connect with a much larger scope of the world using economics as a tool to achieve ambition could be awesome.

I'm giddy!

Had a really good gig for our CD release last night. I think about 300 people turned up and were in the mood to dance. Looks like spending the extra on advertising paid off.

*edit. Oh and it was the first time my home made speakers got a real work out. 3 bands played through it (about 3 1/2 to 4 hours) and the amp hardly got warm.

Closing date is set for 6/23 (which is odd to me due to being a weekend, but is the date the bank gave us).

Way more is going right than wrong lately.

Friday: We drove down to McMinnville (20 miles south on scenic Highway 99W, through wine country) and had a nice belated Mother's Day dinner with friends. Roasted leg of lamb and some very nice Yamhill county wines...yum...

Saturday: I shoveled bark dust in the community garden for a couple hours. I ache in places I didn't even remember having muscles before. Then, off to the first band rehearsal in months. We were on the verge of disintegrating, but now we're committed to recording some demos and shopping around for more gigs.

Today: We're going out for brunch with our friends from up the street, working in the yard, and taking Harley the Black Lab from Hell for a big walk.

Things are looking so much better than they were a month ago, when Mrs. Thumper's brain went sideways on us.

I have absolutely nothing to complain about, so if I start griping about anything, just b*tch-slap me and tell me to STFU.

Got a haircut, got sun/Vitamin D on the way to and from the haircut, and am now drinking a glass of lime-ade from half a leftover lime. Can't beat the real stuff without the chemicals.

Slept in late (11am) and the hit the Museum of Science and Industry with the wife and kid yesterday. Went mini golfing with them today. Playing hooky from work on Tues for a golf outing (on someone else's dime). Found a 30-year fixed at .375 lower than I was initially expecting. Played a ton of video games with the kid this weekend. Got an unexpected (an unsolicited) raise from one of my clients yesterday (retroactive too!). Cleared all of my funds for closing 7 weeks ahead of schedule. Belly full of pulled pork and sausage. Landed an 8 figure deal for one of my clients.

It's been a decent weekend.

It is my theory that nearly everyone's positive/negative comes out to an even (or equal) balance. What may appear to be a surplus of awesome is really just the right amount needed to balance the not awesome.

So no, you can't have my much needed awesome!

On the contrary, your zero-sum theory says that if I take out your awesome, your not-awesome goes down, too.

All your awesome is (should) belong to me!

Also, I'm happy to report my situation is not zero-sum, as the whole point of the thread is to rebalance my life and everyone else's in the realm of awesome.

But as you are the exception: by giving me your awesome, I am not subject to your not-awesome. You experience a net movement towards zero, and your not-awesome is absorbed, well, somewhere.

I'm guessing lug.
