Box with a new pair of shoes sitting on my chair when I got to the office

Braised a pork belly last night and 3/5 of the meat eaters present actually ate the skin/fat (myself included)...they're improving.

It was a welcome surprise to walk outside this morning to find it cooler and a bit crisp. It's going to be a great day with lots of sun and in the low 80's, much better than the mid-upper 90's that we've experienced for the last several days.

Got registered for my last on-line class (can only take 15 hours vis distance learning), and thankfully we use the same book, same edition, as the first part of the class that I took in spring of this year. YAY at not having to splash out $200+ for a two-volume set of books, again.

Are you also stopping by the Indiana State Fair when you come this way?

My coworkers are putting together a baby shower for the missus and me. The vast majority of the people in my office are coworkers with whom I will never have more than a work relationship, so they're really doing it exclusively because they want to do something nice. People who are nice for the sake of being nice make me happy.

What a difference a year can make. Went from 256# with cholesterol of about 277 and an ALT of 78 to being 208# this morning and lab work just came back giving me a totaly cholesterol of 178 and an ALT of 18. Yea-friggin-haw.

That is nice. When is the baby due, Mr. G?

Very nice, Pio! I am impressed by your willpower to cut back on the foie and imbibery.

Humans' ability for being nice never ceases to amaze me. See below.

Congrats Pio!

It is funny because both of these things are similar(ish) to what's made me feel great.

Have a long slog ahead of me today and woke up to a series of incredibly nice emails from home. They literally brought tears to my eyes just knowing how much people missed me and appreciate my company. It sounds kind of dumb but it meant so much for someone I love and care about to say "I miss you so much" and...yeah. Fuck I'm a sappy little bitch sometimes!

Also, it turns out, if you go to the gym more than you normally would, walk a ton in the heat sweating your balls off with a 40 pound pack on you, and eat less/healthier, you will lose a ton of weight. It really is a shocking formula.
