btw “Losing an hours of sleep this weekend” is not a rule of physics, it’s a personal choice. Be responsible and you can start the glorious days of later daylight on the right foot.
Tomorrow will be a busy night. Jambalaya, Gumbo, King Cake, probably throw in some Hoppin’ John, and jalapeno cornbread and black eyed peas and collard greens for good measure.
Happy Mardi Gras 2014.
I will find the baby cause I am the king. Happy Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday.

That was a 60 degree drop in about 30 hours complete with ice rink style ice everywhere. Followed by a +30 degree rebound in the next 30 hours. Glad that I only tilled the garden, This weekend sunny and 75 I can plant finally.
WTF weather? You ain’t welcome round these parts. Stay up north where those crazies like ya.
… and to my hero , that’s who I chase. Now when I was 15 years old I had a very important person in my life come to me and say, “who’s your hero?”, and I said “I don’t know I gotta think about that, gimme a couple weeks.” I come back 2 weeks later, this person comes up and says “Who’s your hero?”. I said “I thought about it, you know who it is, I said it’s me in 10 years!” So I turned 25… 10 years later, that same person comes to me and goes “So are you a hero?”, and I was like “Not even close, No,No,No!”, she said “Why?”, I said “Because my hero is me, at 35.” So you see every day, every week, every month, and every year of my life, my hero is always 10 years away.
I’m never gonna be my hero. I’m not gonna attain that, I know I’m not and that’s just fine with me, cause that keeps me with somebody to keep on chasing. So to any of us, whatever those things are , whatever it is we look up to , whatever it is we look forward to and whoever it is we’re chasing…
To that I say “Amen!”, to that I say ”Alright, Alright, Alright”, to that I say just “Keep on Livin’.” - excerpt of Matthew McConaughey’s 2014 Best actor Oscar speech.
Thank you tumblers I follow… for at late end of a truly sucky day… where just about everything I like went horribly wrong … you reminded me in the nick of time… about wine down Wednesday.
Second only to Russia, the host country, in overall medal count, Team USA shows up big with 28 total medals across 98 events in 15 winter sport disciplines. This is particularly impressive when you consider these are some of the least participated sports in the whole of American culture, which should make USA huge underdogs across the board. By participation rankings in these sports, it is amazing that America is even taken seriously in the Winter Olympics ever, let alone scoop up 28 medals and be considered a force to be reckoned with. Great job!
100 pounds ago I was to fat, out of shape, and scared to get in the 15” or so crawl space under my house, when there was a plumbing issue. I had to call the skinny people, and pay out the ass for what should have been a $10 repair job if done myself. 100 pounds, a billion rocking planks, and fearless beast mode later, guess who just went 30 feet WITH his tools, like a beast, under that MOFO and fixed it his damn self?
That’s right, me baby! lol F Yeah!!!! Non scale victory.
