My "ABS" warning comes on intermittently.

Maybe I need to do more sit-ups and crunches?

Also the extreme poor air quality is playing hell with my sinuses and I am thinking of staying home from work today. Should I call in sick?

I guess I am clueless to all these double entendres like check engine light and ABS warning.

Seriously though, visiting not one but two former significant others in one weekend, that is just plain nuts.

I didn't mean it as a double entendre. I meant it in the context that the code is 0404, which probably means the EGR valve is dirty with carbon because I ride my bike everywhere and never drive (odometer just passed 50k on a 2005 vehicle) and it tends to accumulate when that happens. I'd fix it myself but the bolt holding it on is really tight and I tend to strip when I'm screwing.

I spent the weekend in Vancouver and visited my last two significant others. Separately. (They both live there, but are not together. They don't even like each other.)

I cried a lot and made a complete fool of myself. I am wishing there was a way to travel back in time and undo this extremely poor decision. I have spent the last roughly 60 hours in a state of constant cringe at how embarrassing this was.

Wow.  My question would be if you were honest with yourself about why you went and what you could reasonably expect to get out of those visits.

If so then it's an honest failure.

Nope, no double entendre there. and I'd suggest you be more careful when wrenching your nuts.

... not a whole lot of thinking went into the whole operation.  "This smoke is gross! I should go away for the weekend! I have friends in Vancouver! It would be nice to see them!"  was about the extent of it.

I thought I was a grown-up and could handle seeing them in person without being an idiot but apparently not.

Plenty of smoke in Vancouver too. 

What you should do is a country-wide ex tour.   Take a motorhome and visit them all!   That sounds like a ton of fun!   Only good things could come out of that! ;D

A few Burning Mans ago we were in the desert and California was on fire, as it is now.  The moon came up a bright orange.

They have online forums where they *design* drugs specifically for the event.  I am sure people have done every drug.  The only things that I can think of that didn't happen are a murder... and a birth.  Which is why we didn't go this year.

Really? I know virtually nothing about it, but what I have seen reminds me of the shamanism that Castaneda talked about in his Teachings of Don Juan book.

Anyway, everybody's having babies! Babies are excellent.

Grandchildren are the best!  My granddaughter just turned four and I just got back from visiting her.  Actual conversation we had:

Grandbaby:  Come to my room, Grama T-Wow, I will paint your nails.
Me:  OK.  Do I get to pick a color?
GB:  No.  I'm going to do rainbow nails.
Me: OK.
GB: **gets a stool**
Me:  Is that your toilet stool?
GB  YA!
Me:  Perfect!
GB:  Put your hands flat on it, like this.
Me:  Wonderful.  I love it.

She has an interesting technique - starts painting at the tip and doesn't stop til she gets to halfway to the first knuckle.  Fixes the blobby parts with toilet paper, so I have little bits of TP stuck to them.   :D

Anyways, the service was terrible and the prices were outrageous but I give this nail salon 5 stars.   :-*
