I can't imagine what you older guys have to do to drop weight. I noticed my metabolism drop dramatically from 18-23, can't imagine 30's and beyond.

I'd heard it was hellish past 30 but for me it only started getting a bit arduous after 35. Most of it, though, is inertia - once I get rolling I'm fine.

48# for me now. All while drinking wine, eating foie, tasting menus at great restaurants, etc

Before anyone gets in a tizzy, first part of my post was poking fun at this:

Hey man when you could drink 18 beers and fast food all day and your metabolism drops. It took awhile for me to realise something has to give. I only got up to 190 at 6'2 so I didn't get "fat" dropped down to 172 now. Can't drink 18 beers though

Oh god, combined with aging, the impact of 50# off now is really, really hitting my drinking. I am having a big mental challenge to recalibrate. I'm sticking to just three glasses of wine in a night until I figure this whole re-set out. What is making me very happy this morning is that our terminal cat is feeling much better for the last two weeks. She is leaned up next to me, happily washing her face. We most likely only have a matter of weeks left with her, but the daily infusion of IV fluids I'm doing has really improved her quality of life, to the point of it being pretty close to normal. I am very happy she's with us, for even a few more weeks, and currently enjoying life again.

Finished my first 5K race today and ran 1 minute / mile faster than I've ever ran before. I felt good the whole way and finished strong. Totally different than training runs, it's so much better running with a big group of people. Didn't get my time so will have to get it tomorrow when they post them.

Finished my last final exam ever...before the bar.

3 glasses per night? seriously dood, that's a lot, even for someone from windsor. I suggest a meetup next time you are near TO. I will share a bottle with you. You can expense and i'll help you observe your limits.

Great day. In-laws came over for brunch. Gorgeous walk along the lakeshore. Relaxing Sunday afternoon. Dinner with the wife and a friend at Chilam Balam - terrific Mexican place owned by a Bayless alum. Summer is a-coming'. I love Chicago.

After two weeks of research and no clear direction for synthesis, a thesis presented itself late last night as I stared at my ceiling suffering from drunken insomnia.

Last week this was a piss off: one of my senior managers gave 30 day notice. Today, she did not show up for work and has been out of touch all day. Her secretary said she "thought" I knew she was taking a three day trip.

Guess who gets to fire her ass tomorrow, if/when she shows up for work?

And then pay her unemployment.

Well, allow her to be paid unemployment is more accurate I guess.

ooh, would you be on the hook for unemployment in that case? You know how former employees can add to a company's misery.

BTW: just out of curiosity...you pay relo? what's the position? You still hiring?

...

This is the last week of classes. Three chapters of tax law, three quizzes, one exam, and one more partnership return...and the semester's done. Never again doing 9 hours on-line.

Oh, and I finally fixed my sprinkler system, with parts I already had. The mudpits are slowly drying out.

Guys, I will not have to pay poogie as this would be clear cause. Senior manager does a no-call, no show, which is a first time termable offense in the employee handbook and code of conduct (which I helped write ).

Either way, her salary vs. several months of poogie? About even out and no doubt she'll be working well before the differential works itself out.

Jeez Pio: what were you thinking, hiring a senior manager named poogie?
