I went to the gym today. This would be staggeringly surprising to you if you knew me. Typically, I am vehemently opposed to repetitive exercise…and even more commonly, you can replace “repetitive” with “any”. I just can’t quell the brain-activity enough to walk/ride/step/lift in place for an hour. So, I am forced to turn to exercise that I can disguise as “fun”, like mountain biking, hiking, and basketball.

It also helps to be irrational enough to think you’ll start “seriously working out, like 4 days a week”, if things start to get really bad.

Dear Dave,

I was thinking of becoming unemployed via lay-off or firing. Do you think this is a good idea?

Dear Confused,

If you take my advice (and I think you will), I would recommend not becoming unemployed. “Why?” you wonder. Well, because Confused, you may then come across recruiters like this; and frankly, no one should have to deal with that


Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

I’m sufficiently flabbergasted that anyone (let alone 14 people as of this writing) would join the brilliantly sardonic DAK fan club that Ariel set up.

The fact that people are participating is even more shocking.
