March break madness

I had planned not to Man Blog during the March break…and I’m pretty sure I won’t bother with the silver monster, My weight is surely up right now after the weekend of scotch and gobble I’ve just survived.

Survive I did though and here I am to be chubby another day!

Parker and Beagle are doing their thing…as requests to meet at the pub from Parker suggest…he is on the beer diet.

Beagle…I worry.

Beagle's party, the man blog

NO words….

Not sure what Beagle is up to this past weekend.   Work?

Other things….

Well to each their own.

Me…I had a few glasses of wine, a couple beers and a bit of scotch.  Nothing too extreme though.

I also attempted to limit my intake of food…reasonably…which goes straight down the tubes once  either of wine, beer or scotch is added.

You see here at the man blog we like to think of it as the battle against manhood.  Somewhere there is a balance between hunting mammoths and drinking grug, and looking good.  Once we go to the gym we are supposed to limit grug while upping the mammoth…but mammoth goes good with grug…

Damn you grug…

Parker is counting down to his week away in the Dominican…I wonder what the limit is for being submerged in water…I’m betting Parker will find out, the pool bar will not enjoy the crystal clear waters its used to…that I can guarantee.

Pool Bar anyone? the man blog

Pool Bar anyone?

In his defence he may not be as sober as the other guests in Peurto Plata.  I’m willing to gamble the resort will not see a positive balance sheet that week.

I’ve got a busy week, tile the kitchen, possibly do the back splash, and put stone up on the wall where the fireplace is. That will mark the second time I have tiled that wall since we moved in here…I don’t know 4 or 5 years ago.

We shall see how that goes, the 5 month long renovation will be nearing completion if I can get my drywall sorted out…then the fun begins…paint.

My wife is beautiful, smart, fun…but she lacks the eye for design…I believe the day after I painted the house last time…the time she wanted browns and burgandys…ya, that day…then she thought greys might be nice…

My other resolutions…as far as code goes I’m busy trying to mess with the man blog…trying to reverse engineer other sites…and the guitar, I put in at least 8 hours on the guitar this past weekend.  I can play the damn thing…now I just need to become good at it.

Please excuse the appearance of the man blog…it’s under construction….

The Quote of the Day:

 As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no “I” in team, but there is an “I” in pie. And there’s an “I” in meat pie. Anagram of meat is team… I don’t know what he’s talking about.

-Shaun of the Dead(movie 2004)

That single quote will cover the meaning of the man blog during the March break…kids running around, howling…it’s simply not an environment for thought….
