see the day before the forum offline issue, I said that one time I showed my face on a forum and it went offline... Well, it seems that if I talk about it, it happens as well...

I always have shrieking back pain after I shovel. Maybe it's because I'm out of shape. Nah. Maybe I just need to replace the impeller in the damn snowblower.
Non functioning snowblower impellers are a known risk factor for developing shrieking back pain in places that get enough snowfall annually for their Home Depot's (or your equivalent big box home improvement store) to keep snowblowers in inventory.

The poor 20-something or other was being paid by the landlady (well prop. manager) next door 50/snowstorm to shovel the entire driveway and walkway. Our homes are right on the main road and the sidewalk is inches from the plows that come by.....idk, like a hundred times a night dumping wet icy snow back on the walkway in droves.

I was like......you can't do this for 50/dollars. (She had a tiny shovel and was out there every hour - all night - digging the pathway out).

Nope, nope, nope. (OTOH, I'm thinking I've found a possible lawn person for the summer lol)

ETA: no one here digs out the sidewalk. The next day they have a mini sidewalk plow that does it for everyone

i went to my parents last night and watched Bohemian Rhapsody and had pizza last night for Valentines. i was suprised the movie was out to rent already, but it was

it was pretty good. it’s still sad that Freddie Mercury died too early. he loved to perform :, also i found it really touching that the woman he married initially (Mary Austin) and him stayed friends after they got divorced. They both had new partners at the end, but they were still supportive of eachother

8.5/10

It's a little easier to do A9s when I'm half asleep, because I don't feel the need to be ADHD

honestly i mainly listen to local houston sports radio while i turk if i’m not listening to music :unsure: i’m probably a nerd

as far as podcasts i listen to joe rogan sometimes. that or pwtorch Sunday night’s show every blue moon which is a wrestling podcast. i use to listen to Stone Cold’s podcast. i don’t know why i stopped. he use to talk about camping and his pickup truck a lot. but hearing Stone Cold break those things down was hilarious tbh

i wish i could be of more help :, there’s so many podcasts out there though. you could listen forever.

i listened to the Ron Burgundy podcast last week on iHeart radio. the first episode came last week. i do not recommend it. Anchorman is one of my favorite movies, but i don’t know what they were thinking with this podcast. maybe i’m in the minority. i haven’t read any reviews from other people about it

I like any where I can learn something, interviews with creative people, and podcasts that double as therapy sessions :ROFL:

Thanks! There are a ton out there! I really enjoy niche stuff too.. like Irish Music Stories ...I guess that is my version of a wrestling podcast? :D

$50 isn't terrible. Most of the lessons that never ending snow shoveling gig had the potential to teach any one of a dozen life lessons
It's a little easier to do A9s when I'm half asleep, because I don't feel the need to be ADHD
I was in the zone with the A9's earlier. I've tried forcing myself to do them but I always end up squirreling before I got anywhere. I settled in this morning and added a few layers of rejection proofing to my approval rating.
