  2. Fattened Pilgrim Open

    by , 11-29-2008 at 07:56 PM
    I left about 0630 hours for Columbus, OH, to fence at the Fattened Pilgrim Open. Unfortunately, there were only 13 participants so it was an E1 rather than a C1 competition.

    I lost to Mironova 5-4 (he's a C fencer) and to Ferrara, 5-2, a D fencer. I won the remaining 4 bouts, including one against Lillard, a D fencer, who had the disadvantage of directing the pool and I think this threw off his timing as I've fenced him before and he was definitely not fencing as usual today.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving

    by , 11-27-2008 at 08:43 AM
    It's taken me half a century, but I finally like the body I'm in (although I'd prefer to have my pre-2004 knee, shoulder, and elbow returned to me, please -- just send it through the time portal). When I stand in front of our bathroom mirror after a shower, I can see the abs muscles on the side and they work exactly as I wish they had about 5 years ago. If I'd just stop eating junk food, the abs would be flat as a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader's abs.

    Suffice to say that yesterday's Pilate ...

  4. To The Very Attractive Guy at Temple Open...

    by , 11-27-2008 at 01:26 AM
    Fencing Goals: Find "that shirtless guy with the neon green argyle socks" pulling a gunthur at the temple open. There is a girl out there who really wants your number and I suggest you find her soon because myspace has you listed as their #1 famous fencer person...and it'll just get better.

    Maybe a homeless person died from deliberate food poisoning from one of the millions of baked goods that are thrown in dumpsters after closing every night, but I think non-canned foods should be ...

  5. Son of a B

    by , 11-26-2008 at 12:07 PM (Greybeard's Brain Blog)
    Well, I got a call from Barrow last night and the message was that I am being referred over to another Dr in the group (the one who found the worm in the woman's brain in PHX last week.)

    The funny thing is he is the guy who was supposed to have placed my stents three years ago and went on vacation the day I got there so someone else did it and of course "The Master" did my craniotomy. I only have a couple of more associates to hit in the group and have plenty of brain with which they ...
