Who's ready for some excitement?

Didn't my post on Twitter inspire everyone to just comment like crazy? Wow! Comment you did, ok, that's kinda funny. I've just not been my bloggy self lately. We've go so much going on, OhCountess is getting so close to finishing her Master's degree. We can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel and I'm quite sure that isn't a train.

I'm also planning a private get-a-way this weekend. Other then a few business trips, this will be my first weekend away without the wife and kids since, ... I don't know that I've taken a trip by myself for pleasure since I got married.

Friday morning, I'm leaving for Toronto Canada to meet up with some poker bloggers for suds, poker and laughs. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for this trip. By Thursday, I'm going to be completely worthless at work. Lord, I hope they don't need me for anything important Thursday afternoon.

This trip will test my ability to disconnect from the InterTubes. Toronto is apparently in a foreign country. The data rate for my cell phone is looking to be about $.02/kilobyte. Downloading something as small as a 1 megabyte picture would cost me ~$20. Um, no. I don't think so. The iPhone does wi-fi...I think I can look for hotspots no thank you very much.

I'm so excited that this weekend, I packed. Yes, I packed my suitcase on Sunday. I'm ready. Passport, camera, books clothes. They are all packed. Oh boi!!!!

Just to show you how exciting my life is, I spent the better part of Sunday cleaning my office, paying bills and doing our taxes. Livin' the life I tell you. Sorry, there are no pictures. You see, the camera is packed.

I do have a favor to ask, if it's not too much trouble. Since I'm basically gonna avoid the Interwebs for a few days, can everyone just please not post for a while? You know...spare a post for OhCaptain. Really. Thanks! (Just kidding, but if you can email the Cliff's Notes version of my Google Reader, I'd really appreciate it)

Saturday, I wrote about a challenge between two of my friends. The race...Sunday??? Remember??? The race occurred. So my money was no good. I really don't think I could ever bet against one of them, Mumblingsages but in a valiant effort but blew out his wheel in the end. TheBiggTree crossed the line first. Click their names. Both wrote up fantastic recaps of the event. I'm really quite proud of both of them. The raced their hearts out. Bravo gentleman!

I gotta get some sleep. Outside of what ever zzz's I get on the plane, my hunch is this weekend won't be about resting. Many pictures and stories to come!

In the mean time, I'd love to hear about how my Twitter piece helped. Anyone else been thinking politics lately? I have. Anyone watch John Stewart on the Daily show ripping into CNBC? Funny stuff. Anyone have a guest post they want to put here? 

Gotta run. It's nigh nigh time.

Have a wonderful time! I would guest post, but I've got nothing. Nothing I tell you.
