    PS: started out as an Icronic message at link the hug receiver, but continued on to be genuine unhappiness. i am however planning to be at communal labor, and i hope to see many others there as well.

    I'm 99% sure that I'll be able to. Kind of in the middle of figuring my life out right now, but I'm trying to hold off moving to Chicago until April 1st.

    OK but seriously I hate hate hate hate hate hate hate shredded foam rubber. STATIC ELECTRICITY x 1000. Everything flies in all directions whenever you try to scoop / grab / sweep it together.

    This project is because the interior liner of the Sumo bags were originally a cotton-ish material that, get this, apparently disintegrates over time into a horrid web that causes all the foam around it to attach to it, creating a terrible Sesame Street slasher flick bio mess. :horrified: So washing the cover stopped being tenable a few years back because foam explosion. I bought a new liner and transferred the salvageable contents, and have bought a refill bag of foam to replace what is stuck to the old liner. :zombie: Should give 'er a few more years of life to everyone's favorite seat.

    @linc got all nervous when he realized you weren't there. This was his way of relieving stress. Apparently he's destructive when left alone.

    Nope, the big cover just came out of the wash for the first time in 2 years. The inside of the cover is mostly impermeable; the foam smells like foam.

    The black corduroy one cannot be washed at all. I vacuumed it and put it in Kyle's room and am replacing with (newly refilled) nylon ones. Those can get wiped down. :p

    So...I'm participating in the CrossFit Open (scaled division) and the workout period happens to fall in line with the entire time I'm at ICSP. My plan is to get my workout out of the way Friday morning at 6:00am at CrossFit BMW (no drinking for me on Thursday). The other available time is 5:30pm. This brings up two things:
    1. Would anyone be willing to either provide transportation or loan a vehicle so I can get this thing done?
    2. If anyone wants to see me (probably) look absolutely ridiculous, they're more than welcome to come watch. It might actually help to have a small cheering section.

    Yes, I realize I'm absolutely crazy for doing this, but it's an important thing to me. Those of you who have known me for years have seen the changes I've gone through. Even though I've only been doing this for two months, there have been even bigger improvements not only in appearance, but the way I feel in general too.

    @mertesn made me remember to ask.

    I have training runs I need to complete both Saturday & Sunday (yes I'm one of those people that can't leave home without my running shoes). Since I am not familiar with the greater Detroit area running scene, is there a good place between Dearborn (the hotel we are stay at is out in Dearborn) and ICHQ? I'm even good with a park that has a mile loop around it that I can just run over and over. I don't mind running on sidewalks but our hotel is right on a freeway so I'm not counting on being able to do an out and back right from the door.

    Argh. Here I am on Spring Break and no money for a flight to Detroit. Have fun everyone!
