Turkeys, Footballs, Motherboards & Tryptophan

Last Update: December 02, 2013

Well, another Thanksgiving has come and gone. I had a BLAST!

As is my customary routine, I abandoned any dieting and healthy living rules for this weekend and ate to my heart's content. All of my family came to visit (One of the many things I am thankful for - all of my family members I have ever known are still alive, the only exception being my mother, who died on my 13th birthday), and since we are all naturally loud and opinionated, you can imagine those conversations!

Since I am from St. Louis, I watched in triumph as the Missouri Tigers beat Texas A&M to win the SEC East in only their 2nd year in the conference, then watched in agony as the St. Louis Rams, Kansas City Chiefs, and the St. Louis Blues all lost.

I then had the customary three days of leftovers, which I rotated into my cycle of eating, sleeping, and watching TV (something I only do on holidays).

Then my wife decided to take over the new fancy computer I got on Black Friday. Of course she wasn't in the line waiting with me. Neither did she approve of the money I spent even though I saved hundreds. But as soon as I set it all up, now it becomes her new favorite toy.

To all the guys who have significant others, learn this secret - pick your battles. Being the clairvoyant guy I am with the gift of ESP-N who knew this was going to happen, I also took the time to seek out on Black Friday a bunch of internal goodies for the old Dell PC that she was using. As soon as she made her move, I made mine and I (reluctantly...lol) made a new workspace for the Dell and upgraded it to be just as good as the new PC.

So now I have two good PC's and this is now the new WA Mad Scientist Laboratory *cue evil laugh*:

Yes, this is now the place where I will be continuing my millionaire-in-training studies (I know you like that WA logo, haha!). Of course she thinks I made the ultimate sacrifice giving up the new PC, but I don't know how long that will last because she's sure to wonder why I can't stop grinning like a kid in a candy store every time I sit down and get to work.

Anyway, it's good to be back and as always...here's to your success.

Great post! Love it! I feel your pain about St. Louis - I'm over the river at Scott AFB! Great turkey day but I'm still using my new DELL (6 months old) along with my wife and kids - OH the agony sometimes. We do have a laptop that is shared as well!

Here's to a great December and 2014!

Well we can't get everything we want... :D

Nice to know that since you can't make the million in 30 days, reading my article comes in a close second place...:D
