The Hashers’ Curse

As a long-time hasher my eyes have become accustom to finding flour — even when I’m not looking specifically for it. So it was my curse yesterday to see a check as I was driving home from work. No, I did not get out and follow trail, hell I didn’t even know whose trail it was. Not being able to see if the check had been kicked I couldn’t tell if it was the Monday Moonlight Trail (which I would have gladly sabotaged) or a trail from Saturday. It turned out to be the latter, the trail from Saturday’s Pinelake Hash.

8am Meeting
Even though my body still feels that it’s going to be a 9am meeting, I have an 8am meeting. Even worse, the meeting is a day-long training session. Boo, hiss!

So, guess what, there’s not much more to say today.

Since I can’t provide you with much content why not stare at this photo of a Canada goose that I took last Saturday.
Nearly Camouflaged
Gaze at it for hours, it’ll calm you down.

    If I stare at your picture long enough, I get dizzy.


  2. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I think you are the only one who fell for my evil plan Steve, unless of course everyone else became hypnotized.

  3. Steve says:

    I think you’re right… no one else seems to be awake today.

  4. Barb says:

    got nothing exciting to say……

    Oh wait, except we might be going to Tasty China tomorrow night now. Dean is bringing us some pop-up tents that he had to buy for that messenger race, and we are buying them from him.

  5. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Yeah, today’s blog is not very inciteful.

    Wish I could head to Tasty China tomorrow, but I am dead set on losing my The Shed’s Slider Night virginity.

  6. Steve says:

    Is that inciteful or insightful? Either way, I think.

  7. Six of one, half-dozen of the other. 😉

    And in other news: It was a bad day to be a TiVo (TIVO) stockholder. Guess who is, even though he is still in the black. 🙁
