Stuck at work...on a Monday...on what's usually my day off...on my birthday waiting for contractors to finish whatever the hell they're doing. They were supposed to have been done three hours ago--I've been to the gym and back, screwed around on Snapchat, bought shit I don't need on Amazon, did some actual work, fixed two PS3 controllers...did...

So here I am, fresh back from another arctic adventure and living in a house that's not MY house. I seem to be having a case of "domestic reassignment" & am currently camping out in a crazy timber-frame room at my parents...a weird feeling when you're in your 40's. But good news is, I'm happier than I've been in...

Maybe be I missed my calling as a fighter ace...or maybe just need to grow out my mustache?

I got to spontaneously spend the weekend with one of my oldest and best friends. Someone who's never found me too poor, too dirty (I'm a mechanic, not hygienically challenged), or too 'country.' Someone who's loved me and been remarkably patient over 15 years. We've weathered relationships, marriages, some pretty big lifestyle changes, and pretty much have remained inseparable throughout.

It's a really weird feeling to be 41 and when you suddenly find yourself with a day to kill, you can't think of a single person to call to go out for drinks or something. Makes you wonder where the hell things went wrong.

Got a brief sandstorm and a little snow that actually made the place look...dare I say?...pretty. Even got to see one of the last true "nights" before the summer season kicks off. Good times and...

I need to find a chiropractor in Christchurch (or chemist that doesn't ask a lot of questions) and have 24 hour layover in LA and have to play tour guide. I booked a hotel close enough to the beaches, but what the hell do you do aside from maybe running up to Hollywood/Universal Studios? Of course we'll probably just pass out and...

Seriously, have you ever been so thoroughly discouraged you find yourself looking at real estate in another city...in another country...on another continent just to get the hell away from the nonsense. Not sure what it would take to uproot my whole family and go, but it seems pretty reasonable right now. Barcelona seems like a really great option...
