Casserole for the Tie

Tied the previous attendance record of 27.   Each Pax who showed-up is equally responsible for the feat.  But I’d like to give Casserole the credit since he was the last Pax to join the warm-up Circle and b/c I like the word Casserole.

Speaking of Casserole: reminds me of what we’re doing at Fortitude.  Taking a bunch of different “ingredients” and putting them in an AO, slow-cooking over Burpees and Merkins, and winding up 45 mins later with an integrated dish that smells yummy.  Okay too rosey: “winding up with an integrated dish that smells” is more accurate. The rest is true is as well.

LeadPipe got splashed by a passing car while doing the People’s Chair in the Piss Tunnel.   YHC assured LeadPipe that liquid on the sidewalk is of concern (see Tunnel name above). But liquid on the street is rainwater and is about as safe to drink as water from LeadPipe’s Hometown of Flint, Michigan.

HelpDesk is in IT; actually, he corrected the record to say that he is interested in IT, but doesn’t know IT.  Sounds like he’s the perfect candidate for a HelpDesk.

Spartacus wouldn’t tell us much.  But we already have a Silent Partner.   Gladiator is his favorite movie.

Hacker is in cybersecurity. It takes one to know one.

Casserole is a chef whose favorite dish is mac-and-cheese.   He wasn’t fond of Casserole.  But found Velveeta to be highly offensive.   Thus Casserole.  Happiness is relative.

Kobe likes basketball and we used up all our creativity on the preceding FNGs.

Great to have the crew from Barings out today.    Annual Breakfast Sponsors….lunch servers…now Fortitude Pax.   These Barings guys aren’t afraid to roll-up their sleeves and get their hands dirty.   See Piss Tunnel reference above.
