    Hey obbtkn - my dad sent me photos taken from the back of his house, showing snow on some local hills, less than 30km away —

    In all the years I lived in the south of Spain, I only ever saw snow from afar, on the top of Sierra Nevada, some 200km away.

    I'm quite disappointed that I'm not there to see the sight in person :(

    • I'm going to be in Granada next week! Can't wait!!BuddhaHat
    • Skiing, or visiting the town itself? Either way, I think it'll be beautiful — I'm quite jealous!detritus
    • Visiting the town itself, don't have the time for the skiing. I'll be taking my lady there again, at the end of March... any suggestions, besides La Alhambra?BuddhaHat
    • I was in Austria last month and the mountains had no snow this year which is incredibly unusual. Weird times...set
    • After you left it started snowing af :Dsted
    • I haven't been for many years, I'm afraid, BuddhaHat, and then always with family so milling around aimlessly. I'd recommend you do the same, you'll be fine :)detritus
    • Yes, it was a rare thing in south Spain, beautifull panorama over there...

      Here in the Basque Country there is less snow, only the freezing cold, brrrr!!

    How many of you long-timers remember the days of Derek Blais around here? Every now and then curiosity strikes and I'll look up his Instagram. Lots of great black and white photos and looks like he had an awful motorcycle crash last year in the US. Looks like he's done well for himself creatively / professionally and that's cool to see.

    man, i've had russians battering down my instagram door for over a week now. i've had to change my password almost daily because they keep getting in somehow. they'll change the email address (but leave my password for some reason) and post a bunch of porn ads. i correct my email address and change the password, and then i almost immediately start getting odd texts supposedly from instagram, in russian.

    i wonder why they're so hot on my shit right now

    scary health rant:

    So I am sitting at my desk at work around 9:30 am today working. (Been at desk since 6:30am) I start to write the word "SEPARATE" with a pencil and suddenly I can only manage to write "SEPARA.." I'm like wtf? I try again and again and I realize that I can't fucking write! I write a couple letters and they are so messy, towards the end of a word my hand just starts to scribble gibberish. I get up nervously and go to the restroom. I take a piss, wash my hands, splash water on my face, blow my nose and compose myself. I go back to my desk and start to write again. Same thing, I cannot even create the letter "E", my hands will not make the horizontal lines to create an "E". I shake my hands, stand up, take a deep breath and try again.
    I try to write my name: "JAVIER" It looks like a fuckin child wrote it and by the time I get to "R" its a fucking mess, total gibberish.

    So of course I go right to Google and type "Not able to write with right hand.." Second hit is, "Can't control handwriting - Neurology..."

    I click and start reading comments about people suddenly losing their motor function to write. Keep reading and I see comments about:
    -Carpal tunnel
    -Seeing a neurologist
    -MRI
    -Medications
    -Something called Focal Hand Dystonia
    -Botox shots
    -T.I.A.
    -and finally "Mini Stroke"

    FUCK! I AM HAVING A MINI STROKE!!!

    I go see my manager and close the door and tell her I think I just had a fucking mini stroke!

    She giggles. I'm like No! I'm serious!
    I tell her to give me a piece of paper and a pen and I show her and another girl in there my handwriting. It's a mess. Both of their jaws drop and then I freak out and start fucking getting watery eyed!

    Like WTF is going on?? I Feel fine! But I am starting to feel really nervous. They suggest I call my doctor so I do. I tell the girl at Docs office what is going on and she's like, "how fast can you be here?" -30 minutes.

    Then my manager thinks I shouldn't drive! I will drive you she says. So at this point I do not want to look at Google at all. We drive to my Doctor's office on the other side of town. I go right in, they take my vitals and I am 139/91.

    I say, "that's bad right?" She's like, "well no not really, I've seen worse you're probably just nervous."

    Finally my doc comes in (I just had a physical a week ago) He's like hey what's going on? I say give me a piece of paper and pen so I begin to write and although a bit better it is still a fucked up mess. He says, "slow down, write your name again."
    But I'm like ""This is how fast I write though!" so I try again and slowly start to make the letters and they are messy but readable. At this point he tells me to do all kinds of simple and awkward tests kind of like roadside DUI tests. Touch your nose, touch my finger, follow my finger tip, touch it when it's moving.
    Then sit down, walk towards me on your heels, go back and sit.
    Walk towards me on your tip toes, now sit again. Bring up your palms, separate them, touch your thumbs together, now separate them.

    He asks me if I am stressed. I tell him no more than normal.
    "How much caffeine are you drinking?" -A shit ton!

    After describing him my daily caffeine intake he looks at me and says. Look, you're not having a stroke and you have never had a stroke. You are amped out on Caffeine! Relax and go back to work and back off the caffeine.

    This is my average caffeine intake the last few months.

    Wake up 5:00 AM grind a bunch of fresh Organic coffee from Costco.
    Fill the coffee maker to six cups of water.
    BTW the I grind it so fucking long it looks like dust, so it's basically espresso.
    Fill two coffee tumblers with the coffee and add half & half, plus sugar.
    Get on the road by 5:40 am drink one tumbler before I walk in office. By 7:30 AM I am done with the second tumbler.
    I go get another cup of "latte" from the machine in the break room.
    Few hours later I'm on my first diet coke of the day. Then, for lunch another diet coke or sometimes regular coke.
    Then in afternoon I go downstairs and chill in the engineering dept and drink a cup of their nasty "shop" coffee.
    Go home and sometimes drink another coke for dinner and then possibly make another big ass pot of coffee if I have photos to edit that night. Sometimes I'll stop at a Vietnamese restaurant and get a Vietnamese iced coffee to go.

    So basically I OD'd on caffeine!! On top of this I haven't quit smoking like I was suppose to, so I'm putting down close to a pack a day of Camel 99s! Also gained about 15 lbs since I did the half marathon last June.

    FUCK!

    Wake up call man. This is what happens when a 41 year old stoner, druggy, boozer of 20 years goes sober kids. I found a way to fucking kill myself legally!

    I'm back in office now and just chillin' the rest of the day. My wife is going to flip when I tell her tonight. Another girl at work thinks I should get a second opinion too.

    Wow what a week! And I still have Trump to look forward to... :(
