Ahh there we go, back on the bandwagon.
Close grip cable pulldown: 160 x 6 x 4
Yikes, 160 is pushing it, and the 6th rep on the last two sets required a bit of cheating. That’s OK though, just a few weeks ago 135 was killing me.
The rest of my back workout was higher rep, deeper contractions. I had a dream where I was doing face pulls and could really see and feel the scapula muscles getting a better workout that way. So I lightened the load, contracted like a maniac and goddamn that felt good.
Face pulls: lightweight x 20 reps, 2 sets
Seated cable rows, shoulder wide grip: 115 x 15 x 3
Wide grip lat pulldown: 100 x 15 x 3
Close grip pulldowns: 100 x 12 x 2

Dear Atmosphere Outdoor Store in Coquitlam, BC:
A happy dad and his happy son spending a minute to play around on the “big rock” and sitting in the kayak WHICH IS ON THE FLOOR end up spending lots of money as happy dad pictures himself and his son spending lots of time in the great outdoors together. Kinda the whole point in visiting your store!
He had a blast hiding behind the curtains of sleeping bags, too.
But getting yelled at (enough to cause other patrons to stop and look) from a grumpy shoe sales girl who decided that my son sitting in that kayak was a threat to national security quickly turns the happy dad and happy kid into embarrassed, unhappy campers.
Next time we’ll go to MEC.

Android, that is.
And yes I have a little crush on this operating system, with good reason: It rocks, kicks Blackberry and Apple OS to the curb, and has a better mascot.
So its pretty obvious why I want this shirt:

I’m raising funds (and having fun making stupid designs) for this summer’s canoe trip.
Buy a t-shirt or thong or really awesome Sigg bottle. I promise all raised funds will go to the Charity of Paying For SuperJens’ Canoe Trip 2010.

Kudos to Sugru (sugru.com), makers of the coolest stuff I’ve ever gotten my hands on. They sell a moldable, hardening silicone putty that you use to fix stuff and make things better. Its awesome. It starts off soft and moldable like playdough, then sticks and hardens to whatever shape but still stays soft to the touch! Wicked cool!
Today I received a 2nd package in the mail, unexpected for sure. I thought it must have been a shipping mistake and was about to offer to send it back or at least pay for it. When I opened it up there was a letter inside explaining that they weren’t thrilled with the quality of the batch they sent me, and this was a replacement. Awesome.
Boodos to Tego (mytego.com), makers of lame cellphone skins. They sell protective skins for phones (that 3M Graphic Marking System stuff). I “won” a contest through my cellphone provider Rogers, which entitled me to a free $10 custom skin. Big deal, but still, free is free.
Problem was, this was ordered back in early November. In two days it will be March. I’m a patient guy, but this is ridiculous. Three emails during this time were all answered days later (frustration number one), and the reponses were lame “sorry we’ve been swamped!” Really, this just tells me you shoved your contest winners to the bottom of the heap. Megalame.
Q How fast can I get my TEGO?
From the time that you place your order and create it, you should expect to receive it within 14 days (2 weeks) via normal shipping.
HAHAHAHAHA oh please. Even if I got it within 28 days I would have been happy. That quote is from their FAQ. I’ll assume the rest of their FAQ is full of lies, too.

Dyzplastic is teasing us by posting new photos of their Android toys every day, and I want them all. I’m hoping my local shop will get me a box like I asked!
