    I'll be doing a lot of chores around the house tomorrow, probably while watching rugby. There's a Hitchcock-night at a local cinema, so I might enjoy Psycho or The Birds in the evening, probably with a beer I smuggled in.
    On Sunday it's going to be rugby practice and I'll be making more biltong.

    It's Spartan Sprint weekend! They were calling for a lot of rain earlier this week but now they are saying it will just be a litlel rain. Probably just enough to make it good and muddy!

    Enjoy that whiskey Milkman, sounds like you deserve it.

    I have a mud run in three weeks. I forgot about it. My cardio is not up to par. Guess it’ll be a 10k walk with obstacles.

    My idiot friend got drunk on Friday night and thus sucked ass at the race. We said we'd stick together so I waited for him... a lot. Finished in 1:59 which was still good enough for 1010th out of 2400 in the Open group. It was a fun time but I'm a bit disappointed because my time wasn't great nor did I feel particularly challenged. The only obstacle I failed was the rings, I got to the last ring but had zero momentum left to swing up and hit the bell. I'll put more details in my log when I have some time.

    Did a write-up in my log about the race. Includes a link to some photos. I'm still waiting on the "pro" photos. They sent out a link but it seems to be missing a lot.

    Seems to me that you have earned yourself a bottle of this:

    https://pursuitist.com/last-drop-50-year-old-whiskey-worth-4000-till-last-drop/

    Apparently the guys who make it cruise around the distilleries in Scotland trying to find old barrels of whiskey that were forgotten about and gathering dust, buy they and them finish them off (transfer them to new barrels, sometimes blend), then bottle.

    They also do 'taster' sets- two miniatures for five hundred quid...

    If/when I win the lottery, I will send you one. Or one of their other products of equal quality. Until then, you will have to settle for me informing you of its existence.

    So, it's Friday again - weekend plans Pub?

    I'm working from home today so I can attend my youngest son's sports day, will get some benching in aswell.

    Tomorrow we're going to a friend's who are having a hog roast - so that will be awesome.

    Sunday no real plans, may take the boys to the park and perhaps visit my mum.

    It's Canada Day weekend so I have Monday off. We're also in a heat warning where temperatures are to sore over 35 degrees without humidity. Add humidity and we're taking mid 40's. This is a dangerous spot to be in around here since it isn't the norm and so people are generally not prepared.

    There's a hydroplane regatta happening in Brockville this weekend so I'll take in some of the races. I'm going to paint my deck, watching the Trews perform Saturday night and we're celebrating my daughter's second birthday on Sunday.

    Besides getting me into lifting properly and making me grow a beard, the best thing Sherdog ever did for me is definitely this chili-recipe by @Urban. I'm making a huge pot of this today to eat it in the following days and I'll be in heaven when I come home after rugby practice and the stuff is finally done.

    Just heading home from a family weekend at the cottage. It's fuuuuuckking hot but we survived with lots of umbrellas on the beach and fans on the deck (and A/C inside for sleeping). I watched the sunset with my son last night which was a very sweet moment as I spent many summers as a kid watching the same sunset and it still blows my mind sometimes that I have a son to share it with now.

    On the booze front, tried a bunch of cider from the Brickworks Ciderhouse and they were all quite good. They are all pretty dry, not oversweet like a lot of cider.

    Happy Canada Day!

    I originally had the weekend off, but worked a crap ton of overtime instead. Besides the heat being a killer, work wasn’t as busy as I assumed it would be.

    Looking forward to this 4 day weekend coming up (shift work is sweet sometimes). Gonna go catch a Blue Jays game with the girlfriend on Sunday, relax and fish the rest of the time.

    Today is the last foreseeable day of waking up at 430 for work. Monday I take on a new role with a more consistent and lighter work schedule. The physicality of the new role will be reduced as well.

    Nice Aleks, early starts take their toll after a while. What time will you have to get up for your new role?
