Happy Thanksgiving

I’ve been up since six am, wail’n down the coffee and cleaning the house like a pro. I’ve got fam coming through, and my brother in law is a bit on the allergic side of the fence. So, dust be damned and all that. Since my dog is now pushing up daisies, he should be in good shape.

If you know anything about my brother in law, you’ll know I’m about to set full said on a three day bender. Of course, I’m a willing accomplice to the mayhem. The man is a pro. He makes me look like some Cat IV has been. Which, interestingly enough, I am.

I may even ride a bike today. I have to call up Kyle (who recently pulled in $500 on his bike and is an inspiration to us all) and duck out of the mtb ride he was putting together for 10:00am this morning. I wasn’t able to get it together for that one, and, truth be told, getting beat up and dropped by all those cats doesn’t exactly sound fun does it?

Your an example to us all.

– Remember reading all the jokes about ‘Little Johnny’? You know, the kid that the teachers are afraid to call on for answers in the class, for fear of what he might say… Well, finally a photo of ‘Little Johnny’ has surfaced. See if you can find him in the picture!

The theme of this picture was, ‘Make a funny face’!

I knew you’d be able to find him!!!

Yo, Kam, You’re an engineer and you can’t figure “your” from “you’re”?

FYI – it’s “jonny” without the “h”.

And I was in elementary school in 2006?

Whatever.

I’ll leave you out with this:

20 Things Mountain Biking Teaches You About Life – by Steve Kohler

Good writers have often used sport as a metaphor for life: the lessons
of the playing field or arena applied to daily living.
If Norman Mailer (boxing), William Kennedy (baseball) and John Irving
(wrestling) had spent time on a mountain bike, they would have learned
that:

Boldness pays.
Desperation breeds mistakes.
The hardest parts are also the loneliest.
There’s fresh horse flop in the trail ahead.
Balance is first among the virtues; momentum is second.
Success requires confidence, but cockiness invites failure.
Sometimes, the best way past an obstacle is straight through it.
Some people get lucky at parts; nobody gets lucky at everything.
It’s all about the being and the going, not the having and the arriving.
At each intersection, there’s the easy way and the hard, rewarding way.
It’s tempting to focus on the immediate problem to the exclusion of the big picture.
The thing that nails you is the one you don’t see coming.
It’s worth stopping for a breather to see where you are.
Thousands of tiny decisions shape the trip.
The fun starts when you push the limits.
You can get hurt, heal and go again.
Ups are followed by downs.
Practice makes you better.
No quitting allowed.
Love hurts.

Happy Thanksgiving

Eat lots and enjoy yourselves folks, this is Turkey Day.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Nice post. I laughed at little Jonny for about 10 minutes. The MTB poem was great too. Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks for the great webiste.

  2. As far as I can tell, unless someone hijacked their site, the top 10 Conservapedia hits are true. It’s directly from their stats page. I knew the right wingers were obsessed with homosexuality…

  3. Oh come on Jonny. We’ve all heard about you and that school back in ’06. The charges still pending or have you finally registered with the local Megan Law peeps ??

    Have a great Turkey Day man. Tripped over this site 6 months ago and it’s my first stop most mornings.
