About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

I Don't Even Know Where to Start With This...

First, I hope I never die. Because every day I am astounded at the stuff that develops. It just gets better and better.

So I've got the TV on, not really watching. There's this commercial on for something called "Mirapex," a treatment for RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), a dread disease you never heard of ten years ago. I SWORE I heard them say one of the side effects is "an urge to gamble!" I thought I must have heard that wrong. So it comes on again and sure enough,some of the side effects may be an urge to gamble or engage in sexual activity. All this to keep your legs from kicking?

They'll be putting this stuff in the water supply out in Vegas.

My plan is to put my legs above my heart for about 30 mins after a hard ride in a hot bath. Works well. If I forget. I kick. Not so good. That lactic acid is the pits.
