Ok, coming down from Woodbadge. I mean, I’m still so insanely pumped, but the real world is intruding, and I’ve got to get a grip on it all.

I took a bit of a spill on my way to Flag Raising yesterday, and gave myself a *NICE* case of road-rash on my left knee. Not a big deal, but everyone was acting like I cut it off once they noticed it. (How the HELL can you not notice that someone standing at attention in a public assembly is wiping blood off their knee every so often?) So anyway, I’m scabing up quite nicely but it’s sore (as is the wont of a nice scraped knee).

If it’s arthritic in the future, it’ll be my “Woodbadge Knee” *grin*. And if something is worth having, it’s worth bleeding for…

Oh, and for the other Scouters who read this – if you’ve not takes Woodbadge for the 21st Century, DO IT. Even if you have the old beads. This course is AMAZING.

Now to write some tickets…and do some real work.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I told you you’d have the time of your life! Great to hear it ws such a good experience for you. Be careful writing your ticket… I had to rewrite mine several times before my Troop Guide would accept it, I kept trying to take on too much! ;-P

    WB is inspiring, rewarding, and changes how you approach leadership, AND it spills over into many other aspects of your life as well, and how you approach those. I second your recommendation to Leaders getting WB trained, it is well worth it.

    Or someone has been spending entirely too much time around Uncle Roy.

    2. I walked down a street in South Oakland bleeding from my forehead one day from a small scratch I’d accidentally self-inflicted, ducked into a doorway to try to stop it, and a guy and a girl came out of the doorway. The girl was talking on her cellphone and the guy was checking out the girl’s “assets”. He quite literally opened the door into me without either of them noticing that I was there.

    It was quite kafkaesque. And I totally believe now that people can not notice when you’re bleeding.
