Sifu (aka Industrial Size Ed, aka Porn King): The other night you were talking about artisanal rums, but on your website you list your favourite alcoholic drink as "Absolut Mandarin and Mountain Dew."

Well, sure, I mean, that's my favorite, but I like lots of them!

That's the very best, that is, but mint juleps with small batch bourbon and rusty nails with single malt and double IPAs and artisanal rum are okay too, sometimes. If I'm desperate.

I can't believe there aren't more photos at the 5'5 140 or 130 spots; i don't have a scale, but i think i'm somewhere in there, and i imagine those sizes as being way more teh average than is indicated by single shots.

ok, look at the guy with the brown t-shirt at 5'5" and 165 lb, add 30 years and a bit more potbelly, and that is sorta what my body looks like. supposedly at least 30 lbs overweight. looking at that guy makes me wonder how much of my own weight is hair.

ps:i lack caps because wednesday while creek-climbing with the pups i apparently either very badly strained or broke my left wrist. possibly monday into a cast for a couple months. sympathy may be expressed with an "aw fuck" but much less bob to kick y'all around anymore, unless i develop new hunt-and-peck techniques

[Completely overlooked on first pass]

i lack caps because wednesday while creek-climbing with the pups i apparently either very badly strained or broke my left wrist.

Ice it if you haven't, dude. I dropped the spare tire carrier on my truck (which was holding up the 75 pound tire) right off my wrist... and of course it bounced and hit it again. This only hurt a little. For about 3 hours. While I (stupidly kept using it). Then, ah...OWFUCKOWFUCK.

Ice helped to a shocking degree. So did the el cheapo wrist brace from Walmart.

1. Get well soon bob.
2. Congratulations Gaijin Biker. Thus far you are probably the 'fogger who looks least like my mental picture.
3. There's no one at my height and weight in that scheme, but it was very interesting to see the different body types represented on the rightward end of the spectrum. The fellow at 5' 8", 350# has almost exactly the same shape, minus a few pounds, as my friend ("the other fat guy" in many of our shared social contexts), and I think if I quit my awful job and lost some of the accumulated depression/anxiety-produced weight, I wouldn't be too far off from the 5' 11", 287# guy, although I bet if he ballooned up to my weight, he'd carry the extra pounds much differently than I do.
This job is really starting to suck much worse than I ever imagined it could -- I'm on day 12 of 19 days straight at work today. Yuck.

Apo: Overchicked is my middle name. And as the word implies, it's not just about the gal, but about the disparity between guy and gal. Which, being the case, keeps me in contention even as the years go by.

Having attended the ceremony, I can confirm ""most seriously overchicked", and not just in the sense that she's drop-dead gorgeous. GB's a pretty damn sharp guy himself, but she slid gracefully and seamlessly from her native Mandarin to perfect English and then to perfect Japanese in her speech to the guests.

If anyone's interested, I've also put up some pictures of the ceremony and of the awesome biker wedding parade through Tokyo at my blog, complete with indiscretion errors.
