If You Add Drunk People to Fitness Quotes, Things Get Hilarious
Fitspiration quotes are meant to get you to work harder, exercise harder. But like all other things, they do tend to get overboard.

Taking the world by Drizzle
Introduction
"That Michael Curry" -- Husband, Father, Photographer, Foodie, Coder. Tinkerer. I play with software snakes: Python, to be precise.

I circle real people only... and usually only if you provide useful profile information along with interesting and relevant posts.

Sometimes it takes me a while to update my circles, so if you've recently circled me, please be patient...

~~~

If you don't understand why I posted something or made a particular comment, just ask.  I'll be happy to explain.  Please keep in mind: commentary is not advocacy.  I +1 things though I may not agree with them.

I follow the No Asshole Rule.  If you act like one while visiting, you'll be shown the door.  I expect that you'll do likewise.

Bragging rights
I wrestle with Snakes: Python. The programming language, that is.
