Life seems to be a bit easier for certain people. Take this girl for example. I feel I’m a considerably better dancer, yet my video of me dancing around my room didn’t get nearly as many views as hers.
I’m sure it’s easier for her to get seated at fancy restaurants too.
My hands wet on the wheel,
For anyone who grew up in the late 80’s, early 90’s in the New York Tri-state area, you know Action Park.
I grew up with the belief that we should accomplish more than our fathers had in their lives.
My father was a leading architect with Turner and went on to start his own construction company. He designed and built skyscrapers in Manhattan and multi-million dollar complexes all over New York and New Jersey. After a day’s work he could take a step back, take a look at what he created, and be filled with a sense of pride and self worth. The only time I can relate to this feeling is when I take an impressive dump.
I’ve accepted the fact that I will never be able to reach the same level of accomplishment or status as my dear old Dad. I feel as though I’m at least living the retirement that he never got a chance to enjoy. So, due to the fact that I have resigned myself to my fate, and the knowledge that this CRAP blog will probably be my only living legacy, I have decided to do something that he always wanted to do. My father always wanted a Jaguar XJ6, and during his relatively short life, he was too busy working and building shit to get around to it. So here’s to you Paps. Meet Mandy, my Jag:
She runs on LPG, so I will save lots of loot-cake on gas (which is HUGE over here). As long as nothing breaks, I should be in the clear…
This CRAP’s to you Dad! You always gave without taking. I miss you and wish you were here…
The 2008 climbing season began yesterday when I hit the rocks and managed to conquer an overhang lead climb. After that we shot bow and arrow, threw spears and axes, pounded our chests, and then finished up with a few rounds of chess. Oh YEaaah, I feel GRrrreat. Uuuuhhhf!
Here’s a little CRAP 17.03 to bring you into your Monday commencement of servitude. In the words of Mikey Fu (aka The Sorcerer), “Life’s short, play hard like Bo”
Never believe it’s not so,
