Hi there, welcome to my blog.

What's this all about? Well, that's a question I'm probably not even qualified to answer. I guess it started off because I had nothing better to do, but turns out that I kind of like it. So when I'm not working for The Man I like to take pictures, make videos and write about whatever else might seem like a good idea at the time.

From dragon boating to mountain biking, to road trips and travels overseas - this is me trying to enjoy life. Clock out at 5, eat, drink and don't forget to smile a lot.

Spring is here? ICWTPOSS (I can't wait to put on some shorts)

One of the things that I'm still getting used to at work is the intense use of acronyms. When people talk I have no idea what's going on it's sometimes hard to follow because every second word out of their mouths is some sort of abbreviation

It ain't no joke. On the employee portal I managed to find a 7 page document with some of the most commonly used acronyms. I printed it out, and being part of a technical group I find myself adding to it daily. No shame here.

Regardless, nothing on that list compares to my favorite acronym of all time: Phil Mickelson's nickname, FIGJAM (F*** I'm Good Just Ask Me).

Here's 2 of my faves, one I just learned the other day:

FUNGUS - I originally heard this in a military context (it was a pilot's callsign), stands for F**k U, New Guy, U Suck.

AYMF - A friend of mine heard this from some old guy on the golf course who sliced a ball into the trees, stands for Adios, You Mother F**ker.

Apply liberally at work and on the tee ;)
