Movember, Glowing, Superstorms and Friday #Shoutouts

Yes, it is Movember again for those who wish to show support for Prostate Cancer (and other cancers), grow yourself a mustache, and maybe get some sponsors for it. Think of it, you don’t shave and you have a good reason for it. Mrs. C8j points out that this is to support folks like me (who have prostate issues), so I should shave. Mrs. C8j is a party pooper sometimes, that is for sure.

Our excitement on Halloween was L’il C8j having a great time trick or treating until he bit down on one of his glow sticks. Needless to say there was much rushing around, rinsing out of mouths, and washing of faces. He doesn’t seem any worse for wear, and luckily, he doesn’t seem to glow anymore, either. Michael James helped out with this Halloween excitement too (i.e. he did the face washing), yes, sometimes Financial Bloggers are very useful!

Sandy the Superstorm wreaked havoc all over the bloody place, and it will cost one heck of a lot of money to clean up, luckily it has nothing to do with a climate change issue too. I love the zealotry on both sides of the global change arguments, it rivals abortion and creationism for colourful and vehement arguments. To those affected by the Monster storm (3 feet of snow in West Virginia, holy cow), our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Speaking of which, maybe it’s time to think about snow tires? Get those suckers on now, BEFORE the first snowstorm.

Weekly Recap

Lots of winds blowing hard around me, but hopefully not too much hot air being blown by me in some of my posts this week. My site has been banned from one social media site after by bucket list post of last week, evidently a f*cket list is something very specific (who knew):

It was a dark and stormy week this week, that is for sure, but hopefully our favorite authors can be a shining beacon of light for all of us:

  1. I think I just might have to grow a mustache for Movember this year. Normally I’d save the shaving laziness until hockey playoffs, but it’s looking like that won’t happen this season. Glad to hear the little guy is ok after the glowstick incident. I’m sure that stuff can’t be too good for your insides.

    1. No, but he didn’t really ingest any from what we can tell, so (touch wood) all is fine. He continues to eat bugs and such, so maybe his insides are made of stronger stuff!
