A judge wrote a decision that is published so it can be cited by other lawyers. I was the successful party.
Nice.

At best I get quoted here on WSC in the QOTD thread. It's the best I can aim for in my pathetic life.

You definitely sound smarter than me. I'm glad I have more chest hair or I'd feel intimidated.

Talked to the boss last night as I was leaving, sounds like I'm getting a raise with more potential for making more money on top, and looks like I may be switching my scheduling in the next little bit to an earlier start and end time, which means I can spend more time with my family vs me getting home, shoveling dinner in my face because my wife and daughter already ate, and only have the 20-30 minutes between eating and bedtime to spend with my little girl.

More money is always good, but more time with the kiddo is great.

Thanks man. It's well over due.

More good news from the weekend. I finished up training with AHS to be a Peer to Peer connection volunteer to help other fathers who have kids in the NICU by offering support and perspective to them from someone who's been through the same things they are going through. It's going to be challenging, but I feel like it's going to be such a good thing for me and it's going to be so good to be able to support other fathers who are going through such a hard thing to deal with.

Also got some new proper running specific shoes for the first time in almost 9 years for an early b-day gift from my wife and kiddo. My old shoes were so old and packed out that I started to get some bad foot pain from wearing them while running at the gym last week. Turns out for proper running shoes, they are supposed to be replaced once a year due to the foam and support cushions breaking down/hardening up.

And last bit of good news that comes with some grim overtones, one of my friends was murdered by Bruce McArthur in Toronto (the guy who allegedly killed 8 men from Toronto's happy village between 2010 and 2017), and a bunch of news agencies are saying that there's supposed to be a major development expected tomorrow at his court date. A bunch of news agencies are expecting that he's going to enter a guilt verdict, which would be incredible and would save all of the families and friends of the victims a lengthy trial.

Sold my Rx350 in 48hrs of posting it on Kijiji - maybe sold it for too cheap.

Pops will be selling me his 13' Glk 350 pretty cheap as a replacement car.  >:D

On a side note, Friday is my last day at my current work - then chilling in Van this weekend, as well travelling Asia for a couple of weeks before I start my new job.

Oh boy. 2019 has been amazing so far.   ^-^

I find it paradoxical that high calorie food vendors want your skinny, 4% bodyfat, assay promoting their product.

It's because he has a bunch of thirsty assay girls from (seemingly) Britain constantly messaging him on instagram. User engagement = mad bank. All the power to him.

I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

I actually do eat a lot of that stuff, but I work out incessantly so I stay right in that sweet spot of 167-172 lbs

Why would you stress? If your friend can't make it, that just means twice as much booze and orewhays for you.

Was supposed to go up to Fort Chip tomorrow but its too cold to travel so the trip was cancelled. While it would have been a really interested experience, I wasn't looking forward to the cold.

Windchill of -48 doesn't sound appealing.

Go home Subaru. You're drunk.

Although I got a thanks but no thanks letter from a company, in that same letter they did state that they are very interested in me/my career portal profile with said company. I'm interested to see what happens, and hopefully I didn't just jinx it.

I smashed one of my gym goals 5 months early.  8) I think a 275lb deadlift by June of this year is a pretty realistic goal.  8)

Congrats! I broke a couple of my gym goals last night too! I'm super pumped because the one goal/test I have to do has always been such a daunting task, and last night I got to where I need to be, and beyond and could've kept going.

I have some employment related testing coming up in April and thanks to my check last night, I'm super confident I'm going to be able to pass it.

I actually got a casting for hand modelling once which I found pretty hilarious. It said “hands must appear to be 25-35 years old”

I didn’t even bother replying since my hands are hairy, veiny, scarred and generally not attractive
