Moleskine: After nearly two months on the bench, it was fantastic for YHC to hit the gloom and punish the pax. Prayers are welcomed for healing since YHC finds going to the YMCA a bit mundane after doing F3 for 2 years. Yes, there is a fern in the corner of the room and it does appear to be real. No it does not come close to absorbing all of the CO generated by a bunch of sweaty 40 somethings on the elliptical machines (YHC included).

There was much grunting and groaning and the occasional Joker crop dusting (what would the Matrix be without that?). Overall a good time was had by all.

Nice Q Salt Lick and great to have you back out with us. Next time leave that stagnant humid air at home when you come. You must have wrote this back blast last night to get it out so quick. It’s taken me until now just to get my arms lifted up to the desk. Shampooing the hair took extra effort today.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
