    Where in the world is El Guapo?

    Ok kids, here is the el Guapo update. A few years ago I realized my role at the city was fundamentally to be the city’s hammer and take directions from a spineless blowhard who was hyper sensitive to whatever direction the wind was blowing. Most of my day consisted of unfarking the actions which my employees farked up that day. 50% lead paint chip eaters. Not that I'm still bitter. Some of these employees were good the rest were lazy, slow and essentially unfireable thanks to a very dense layer of civil service protection that shielded them lazy bureaucratards. I was a 'success' because I had risen to the level where I now made great money but damnit, I loathed my job and with it the profession. I did good work and tried to be a mentor, coach and team builder but I must have had some bad karma because I drew deuces on about 6 hiring decisions in a row. I was working ungodly hours and my health was tanking. Then I had my epiffany. I hated this crap. I was working way too hard for someone else. I didn’t give a damn about the money because I never had any free time to spend it. I decided I’d like to make a change. So I did. I got a new gig.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    My hope was Middle School Health Teacher... although I know this couldn't be true. Your candor would be useful when educating about reproduction....

    I agree with Hink. You should be educating the youth of this great nation! Or run a call-in show.

    I really think EG should move here to Tinytown. Why?

    * Tens of breweries in an hour's drive, and decent homebrewing supply stores.
    * Phenomenal Indian food.
    * Traffic resembling what might be seen in downtown Goteborg.
    * Bike friendly, and the usual assortment of TBGs on recumbents. Unfortunately, hills completely surround the city.
    * Women's rugby.

    Tell me more of this tiny town...

    Dan Nice Volvo photos. I sold my beloved 244GL back in 2005. I still mourn that decision. I got divorced recently and I had to give up carbs cause of my [Wilford Brimley] Dia Beat Eeees [/Wilford Brimley]. I still ride the hell out of my bicycles though. I also moved to a Midwestern town that is genuinely Bicycle Paradise. Additionally, I have yet to discover the joy of Dutch Womyn's Rugby. Although I did wake up in my hotel room once after a hard night of partying with multiple bruises, grass stains on my pants, and with several mono-browed, and equally bruised, womyn of Northern European decent. It's best we don't explore the happenings of that night. The statute of limitations has yet to fully run.

    It was a serious bummer to hear of Chet's (BTurk's) passing. His patient and logical arguments changed my thoughts on Don't Ask - Don't Tell and gay marriage. It was sad to hear of his passing.

    ^^ Good to see you alive and kickin'. Been to Asia lately? I went to Turkey in 2010. It's lovely, you should go if you haven't already.

    Through the glory of Facebook I have discovered your new gig and location and have voted accordingly. It helps to know your real name I guess. The low carb diet looks to have been good to you.
