    Kind of an offshoot, but with everything being negative lately, let’s post some good stuff going. As many know the pandemic was rough for me financially but folks here really helped me out. Been trying to pay it forward since.

    I love my job most days. I get to work from home, travel a bit and meet a lot of good people. I think it’s good to have a spot to post positive stuff in this Hellscape we live in.

    I've read like 50 books so far this year and that's only possible because my emotional/mental state is the best it's been since 2019. So hooray for me

    Having access to $75 ounces of killer chronic is nice

    Oregon posters think that's a rip-off though

    I'm about to go to Hardee's. I beleive them to be at the absolute pinnacle of the fast food breakfast game right now.

    Taking my kids to see their grandparents tonight. Haven't seen them this week so they'll be excited.

    Tomorrow we are going to the zoo. I'll probably pay a dollar to let my little girl feed the giraffes. It's her favorite.

    Thor comes out tomorrow night. #blessed

    Don't want to derail this thread with a hot take but.. I had an ice cream pie this weekend. I think it's superior to an ice cream cake. I respect dissenting opinions though.

    I go on an extended family vacation every year and it’s one of the highlights of my year. Basically spend a week on a lake with ~20 of my favorite people and give my kids time to develop a deeper relationship with their relatives. It’s coming up and I’m still as excited to go as I was when I was a kid.

    This was a pie crust filled with homemade icecream and topped with a small amount of icing similar to how youd put whipped cream on a key lime pie.

    In my experience an ice cream cake has no crust, some sort of cookie layer, and more icing.

    I'd say the pie is simpler and the quality of the icecream stands out.

    Listen, if a killer ice cream syrup recipe doesn't belong in the good things thread, I don't know what does.

    In my entire life I only spent about 3 months living in an apt. I did not enjoy the experience.

    I expect that I'll end up in a form of that in another decade give or take. I don't expect to enjoy that either.

    Ice cream cake is a cake made from ice cream. Ice cream pie is when they take the leftover sperms samples from the bank and thaw them out in your butthole.

    When I was 7 or so at the dentist reading a Highlights magazine there was a recipe for ice cream pumpkin pie and asked my Mom to make it that year. It's incredible. My Mom still has the cutout from the magazine and makes it every Thanksgiving. I'm not the biggest fan of getting a slice out so I keep meaning to suggest to her to just break up a pie crust and mix it in and serve it up like regular ice cream instead of slicing it like a pie.

    Spent 2 years in an apartment, didn't mind it because I associate that time with being newly married and having lots of sexy time. That being said, my rent back then (2000-1) was $475 a month for a new 2 bed 1 bath in a brand new complex. Heard the other day rent for that exact same apartment now is over $1500 a month...woof, that's higher than my mortgage payment

    PNW summer has arrived, life is good. Thru October, I think I spend every other weekend camping in the mountains. Have 5 multi-night trips planned so far, with several lasting more than one week.

    Good thread is good!

    Every night before I go to bed I think of something good in my life and give thanks for it. It’s keeping me sane.

    I am constantly amazed and grateful and blessed that there are people who never gave up on me.

    NGL the guys on this site make me happy. I am constantly amazed at the transformation from a lot of people here. I don’t talk much politics with people in my life (most just aren’t invested enough) so it’s good to have this place to bounce my crazy and anger off.

    Have been working a lot of OT lately, but got a day off yesterday. Convinced my son (soon to be 6) to take a break from Legos and take a bike ride with me to a playground. In the middle of playing he said "wow, this was a great day for this! Thanks". Wasn't much, but it was a feeling that I wish I could bottle up
