Recently I helped organise a work do at the building I worked in after I returned following my epic collapse then recovery. At the event I got talking with my old foxpod neighbour, V—, who I shared many a convo with over the months I was in that workplace."You know, Mikey," she said, "you look better each time I see you."And it's true.

I paused my SoTPC ride to get another drink.(Slurps Pepsi Max)Oh yeah.
With thanks to Alice Cooper.Well, Mikey managed to go and wound himself—and as irony would have it from playing with an existing wound.I have a raised scar weal on my cheek—though it can't really be seen through my beard—but it's so puckered and "rich" that I can't help worrying the weal with my little finger nail.

theBoy and I share a word—furtle, or furtling—which means to swivel your eyeballs in a suspicious manner. It now has a larger meaning of tucking your head down to just eyeballs above the rim level and sneakily zooming along. I am officially in a new position and oldwork has forever lost their hold. My newwork is awesome and I get to do fun things as I furtle along, tweaking things here, suggesting things there.
Just over a year ago I tried something I've always wanted to try. It was a public performance piece. It ... did not go well. No, no it did not.But tonight I gave it another go and this time it went well and I did not blow goats. In fact, I fucking rocked it out. Alas, I didn't record the event, so I do not have proof of non-Goat blowing. But a friend was there and he saw it; he did!
With thanks to Talladega Nights.It's now been a couple of weeks since I joined the new team and I am humming along. The workload is thus far bearable and there's kewl things I get to do like go into the field to talk to people and even take photos. I, like Ricky, was knocked out of the workplace and it took the entire second act to get me back to the track. But back on the track I am and I am zooming along.
