I forgot this little nugget: my wife and I never really go out (as in clubs, bars, etc.) Her cousin is a hard partier and foodie who used to live in a condo in downtown LA. He took us out to the hidden spots that most people don't know about. We hit some restaurant at 1am and he ordered a "lobster grilled cheese" that he'd been raving about all night. I can't wait to have that again. I was so drunk I can't remember where that was, though...

I heard his next feat is running the Mohican 100 in Ohio in June.

While you are correct to a point, agricultural allotments have been slashed pretty drastically already with devastating effects in many agricultural areas. The attempt to cut residential allotments is based on the overwhelming waste there. While it is not the largest area of consumption in the state, at least 50% of residential use is for keeping the lawn green. Drought or no drought, lawns have no place here.

We've torn our grass out and landscaped everything with drought-tolerant plants years ago. We keep open areas for the dog, but those are just covered in mulch.

This just prompted me to look at it for the first time since the change. I like the initial view. I don't like endlessly-scrolling sites.

I don't know who will win, I just know I won't like the coach of the winning team...

The game opened looking like Sparty was going to run Duke off the court. Now, it looks like Duke will run Sparty off the court. I'm sure things will turn around soon.

For steaks, I sometimes use olive oil, but the steaks often catch fire when I use that. Then, I'll use some combo of any or all of salt, pepper, onion salt, or Nature's Seasons. I try to buy quality steaks, which are pricey, but make a big difference. Also: don't be afraid to use a meat thermometer. The frequency with which your end result is cooked exactly as you want it will increase dramatically with a thermometer. I also let steaks rest on a plate wrapped in aluminum foil.

I moved to Belize for two years (it was going to be permanent) after graduation from OSU, and moved to southern California from Ohio in 2003. While I had work lined up in both cases, it was still a big deal. For Belize, I had to move with what I could bring on a plane. For California, I had a yard sale and sold almost everything I owned, and just kept the important stuff that would fit in my Isuzu. I can't imagine what life would have been like if I hadn't done those things. Not sure I want to imagine it. I love Ohio, but never really saw myself living there for the rest of my life.

When I moved to California, I had no idea that lane splitting by motorcycles was legal. Actually, I didn't even know the term lane splitting. After spending several weeks here in traffic, amazed by the audacity of these guys to cut between cars, and sometimes honking at them in anger, I finally had a girlfriend in the car with me who asked why I was getting mad, and explained the law here. My mom still gets worked up about it whenever she visits from Ohio, though.

I don't usually get into it, but I did post this update on Facebook this morning that went over well:

Today, I am pleased to announce my resignation as Vice President of [company] to follow my long-awaited dream of working as a Level 1 Technician at Port-o-Potty Corporation. For years, I have used portable toilets at campgrounds, races, and construction sites, often in fear of what I have found inside. I have always wished that using these portable chemical toilets was a happier experience. It occurred to me recently, due to numerous Facebook memes, that if I want to see change, it is MY responsibility to make it happen. So, that said, I am happy to begin the next stage of my life making pooping enjoyable everywhere for everyone.

The resulting discussion was gold.
