    I used a stripper on my dresser last week. Took it down to bare wood.

    Good news Vic but I'm still waiting for photos of that Cuban stripper. Or was it a male Cuban stripper?

    apparently, I had two, but were removed. Nothing to worry about they told me... I'd want to see the film, though.

    I've looked at my colonoscopy film. Just a pink tunnel.

    Well, we can put in a few red or brown spots if you want more action in that movie, if you wish.

    Ok, so what's with being wide awake at 5:30-6am? I always heard that shit happened, but until a few months ago, it didn't mean shit to me, I slept like a baby till 7:30-8am every work day, no problem. Now, even on weekends, I'm staring at the alarm clock at alarmingly early times.
    One of the consequences is now I'm having fucking naps on the couch when I get home from work! Or in the afternoon on a weekend day. wtf? I also get paranoid when I have a concert or somewhere to go in the evening...shit, didn't catch a nap today...am I gonna fall asleep at the show? lol Of course I never do...but my brain is still trying to come to grips with these early mornings lol.

    ...and while I'm at it... I used to scoff at an 8-slice. Now after 3, I'm throwing up my hands...ok maayyyyybe one more slice. Fuck you old age.

    I wouldn't be too worried unless you're falling asleep when you don't want to or can't get at six hours sleep in one block consistently. Otherwise it's normal to require less sleep as we age and IMO it is healthy to take a short nap or two for ~20 minutes or so during the day. Sometimes at work I go out to my car just so I can have a quick nap. Some far sighted companies even have cots so that their employees can grab a "power nap".

    Those are smart companies. When I fall asleep at my desk, I risk using the group benefits for chiro visits after bobbing and weaving through a 20 min nap.
    You're right though, I don't really feel any worse.... it's really more about getting used to it at this point. Thanks and cheers.

    Pretty fun so far. Glad Tiger's still playing on the weekend, and Speith as well. Rooting for Rory to come from behind and capture the career slam. With him and Reed in the final pairing it'll be match play (which I love) unless someone else makes an early charge.

    Happy with what I have to be happy with.

    How the mighty have fallen. I got interested in golf because of Tiger. I'm not really rooting for him though. It is kind of a shame to see how his career has gone in the last 7-8 years. I'm referring to his health issues.

    I wish he wasn't. It's time for him to drop his golf bag in the garden shed and fade away. I was a big fan when he was younger, and I was AT the Masters in 2001, and watched him wrap up his grand slam. But his shows of bad sportsmanship, barely-contained temper tantrums and unpleasentness towards his fans soured me a long time ago.

    It also pisses me off that there was a full field of players, yet the cameras and the commentary hung sychophantically onto Wood's every move.

    Note to the producers:
    Focus on the GAME, and if you want to focus on a few key players, watch the LEADERS! Woods is irrelevant, and should have faded into obscurity a long time ago.
