I came, I saw, I... settled down

EDIT: Sorry about the image size.

I registered in here a while ago but wasn't active for this, that and the other thing. It's mid-June, I'm ready to start talking about snowboarding again, my other forums (snowboardaddicts.com and mthigh.com/forum) have dried up and the /s/snowboarding on Reddit is pretty bad. So... I came here.

My 2012/2013 season was interesting to say the least.

I got married in January (proposal was in September):

]

Three weeks after my wedding I broke my arm (doctor says I broke my wrist but I broke my radius which is an arm bone so FUCK YOU DOCTOR!!!):



(bonus ass bruise pic)



Had surgery to put in a titanium plate to hold me back together. Insurance paid for it but I saw how much my insurance had to pay. $36,000. The thing that pissed me off the most was the $300 tube of Neosporin.



Doctor told me I was done for the season. Once again... FUCK YOU DOCTOR!!!



About two months ago the wife and I decided to "pull the goalie" figuring it would take several months to get pregnant because we are both in our thirties and not of Latin decent. Son of a bitch!!!



Baby is due February 3rd so you can imagine what my next season is going to look like.

With all that being said... I got a little over thirty days in this last season which isn't too bad for someone who lives in Los Angeles, has a real job, got married, broke his arm and had surgery.

So yeah... GreatScott is back and ready to catch up on the latest and greatest in on-snow and off-snow activities.

Gotta be one of the best opening posts I've read on this forum.
Quite the story.

Well, welcome back, and good luck with the baby!


BTW, when the doctor tells you the sex of your baby, there's little point in responding with "FUCK YOU DOCTOR!" if it's not what you wanted. LOL!

WOW i have a boring life in comparison...

Don't know you and wasn't around for the original introduction, but WELCOME BACK...

It's all downhill from here child wise, i have 2, although my eldest is now 18 and self sufficient, it doesn't stop... On rearranging my life, i ended up with my current g/f who has 2 children so it starts all over again... Although this time, i have managed to make a snowboarding addict out of the youngest, which is great, so i get to teach, have fun and have an excuse to carry on my addiction with him... Woo Hoo

Whatever the world has in store for you, make sure that the snow is always involved, it is a fantastic thing...

Interesting enough, I have an aunt who is an instructor who has been successful with kids as old as 18 months.

Lol. I swear to god I mean it when I say I don't care what the sex of the kid is. I'll raise them the same. "Don't be a sissy" will be the family motto. With that being said I have a wife, two sisters, mom, mother-in-law, sister-in-law who is married to a woman and have a daughter, our bff's are two lesbians AND I work in an office with only women. I could use another guy around to break up this "Meat-Curtain Tent Sale Blowout."

That Neosporin was to lube up your ass for the giant fist that got shoved up there. It lubes and disinfects all at once.
