Two swank MT workouts this week, augmented with rolling and hopefully some running. My insurance company has been very slow to send the flex plan check, having "lost" the proof of payment and claim form I submitted 5 weeks ago. I resubmitted it over a week ago and I'm going to call them again tomorrow.

I've been polite this whole time, but it's created an embarrassing situation with my gym (not my BJJ gym, the gym up the road from me that has treadmills and a ring) my door code doesn't work even though the owner has the signed debit card from my insurance company, that is to say $250 worth of collateral. All of this could be avoided if this gym acquired a debit card processing machine.

Things are rather more eventful at home than I'd like. Thank Saraswathi and Pee-Wee Herman that I'm paid and saving some of it.

EDIT: 2 glasses of wine, a Scotch coffee (dewar's, ice, 1T half-and-half, coffee) have mellowed me out but i just can't continue to drink this way if I want to compete in late Aug or do a 4 mile obstacle race in mid Oct.

EDIT PART DEUX: I got asked angrily "Who is all that ornamental underwear for?" My simple, truthful, one-word answer: Me. Those of you who follow me on Twitter will have seen this already.


Sig Credit to Toxic

Apparently they found him in his car but as this story develops the facts seem to changing so I'm not sure.

This is why I bring my gun with me everywhere. One off duty cop or citizen with a ccw and countless lives could have been saved. Last I heard was 12 confirmed dead, at least 25 injured, and the suspect is in custody.

I guess he used smoke bombs and had 4 guns on him, including a sho tgun and automatic rifle.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I think the motivation is the big deal. They have a military base 30 minutes away from the shooting. It's a movie so you have your crazed fan boys. The Right-Wing has been pushing the hidden liberal agenda of Bain/Bane.

Also youngest victim is 3 months years old....someone brought a 3 month year old to a midnight movie.

If someone has the capability to kill that many people without remorse, I don't think motivation is the issue. That person is going to kill sometime in their life, they're just looking for the right excuse. This isn't a liberal/ conservative issue imo.

I think it's important to find out if it's a terrorist (Giffords, Norway) or a nut job (Virginia Tech). This guy wanted to kill in the most dramatic way possible to get a message across, he didn't even run from the cops.
