I am totally awesome

There are couple of reasons for this post, but mostly, I was just sitting here thinking how awesome I am. I just realized, while I was reading about the evolution of bird genomes from dinosaur genomes on or some other news site, that I am actually a fairly awesome guy. I suppose the real test here will be how long it takes GSTDOG to find this post and ridicule it for it's clear message of, how shall I put it, YOJAY-AWESOMENESS. For those of you who don't know, and judging by the comments, that would be everyone and no one, GSTDOG used to be a regular contributor to this blog until he lost interest in posting relevant or interesting content a few months ago. In fact, I think it's safe to say we may have seen the last GSTDOG post on this blog...maybe...ever. Some say: it was time.

I'm not sure exactly what happened. Perhaps he found religion. Perhaps his new fiance doesn't give him permission to post anymore. Maybe he just became a huge pussy. No matter what the reason, I'm still required to plan and execute his bachelor party sometime in April. Who knows what that will entail? That's not rhetorical...I need some help here. I'm sure at this point he's not allowed to look at pretty ladies, so his single friends will all enjoy a long night of poker and a long day of deep-sea fishing as we send him off to a future void of the things he used to blogging.

You kids out there may think this sounds harsh, and saying it sounds harsh may sound like a cliche, but there are times in life when we all come to a crossroads. You may want to travel both paths, but you can't. At least not at the same time. You can always go down the road and come back, but who has time for that shit. Pick a road and go. Or just hang out at the crossroads and watch everyone else choose for a while. In the long run, no one cares but you. Just do what you need to do to be happy, or on top, or successful, or laid. Whatever you want. When time is up on this insignificant marble, it's just between you and your body. Eventually, however it happens, you'll exhale one last time and the inhale won't come. Will you have spent your days fighting mortgage companies, banks, bill collectors, and neighborhood review boards, or will you have spent your time exploring the purpose of any of it?

My guess is mortgages and that like, since those are the challenges presented to us in our lifetime. We fight the fights we need to fight. The rare person rises above the mundane and does something truly outstanding. Chances are, you're not that guy.

But I might be.
