Sanding Progress

I started at 10:30 am

1) First wall done at 11 am
2) 2nd wall done at noon. This wall was a little more complicated. I had a sliding glass window and heating vent to deal with.
3) The 3rd wall is done and I cleaned the dust off all the walls.

Right now, we will take a time out for our sponsors. The sanding progress post is brought to you by, wxpn radio and pepsi cause I was too lazy to make coffee this morning.

4) SCORE!!!

All done sanding with the exception of having to clean the walls of the hallway. I might run up to the paint store to pick up two buckets of primer.


If you are wondering what I am doing today? Well, I'm sanding the walls of my condo to get them ready for painting. Fun Stuff!

High Fives all around

That is right kids, HIGH FIVE!

I finished putting up primer this evening. In fact, I think we have good reason to question my hetrosexuality. Instead of going to the gym to lift weights, I stayed home, put primer on my walls and watched the movie Hitch.

Not to toot my own horn, but damn my walls are starting to look sexy. They even look good enough that I could hang my pictures back up and forget about the fact that the walls only have primer on them for the next 9 months. (but I'm not gonna do that!) The paint train is rolling . . . . I need to pick a color. Suggestions? ? ?

For Bubba

I've been told I was slacking on my blog so this post is for Bubba . . . Commence post

The walls of my dining room are looking better and my brain is slowly being denied oxygen. So it is a win, win situation.

If anyone from work is reading this right now. I have one word for you, "Hello."

Brain Cells Dying too rapidly

I painted primer onto the walls of my dining room today. Since I live in a 2 bedroom condo, I can't escape the fumes. I can feel my brain cells dying. You can ask around, I can't afford to lose the brain cells I have.

Accepting Bribes

I am currently accepting bribes to NOT post a picture of me in a Leopard Print Speedo! I will accept Cash and / or Favors! Let me know!

By the way, I am now an Uncle. Super Cool!

Sunday, November 27, 2005

Apparently I'm not that cool (nor do I want to be)

Happy Thanksgiving Yall! On to the story . . .

So, I went out tonight with my sister and her bestest friend Varsha. We drove on down to Manayunk after grabbing some dinner. It was a really cool time at first. We went to the Brew Pub and had a few drinks laughing amungst ourselves. It was a really good time as I said. Then we travelled down Main Street to Kildares in Manayunk. This around where things in my mind started going wrong. . .

Kildares was crowded and the hip people were out. Which was cool, but! It was crowded enough that I had this trigger of making sure my sister and Varsha were cool and not getting fucked with.

Well, we got a drink and went to the dance floor. I was cool for about an hour, enjoying the view, and leaving to talk with some ladies but then I snapped. I don't know if I sobered up or if the vision of my sister dancing flipped a switch but all of the sudden I turned into a body gaurd. (A skinny body gaurd but I was willing to fight to the death so I had an edge.)

Anyway my sister danced and a couple guys would attempt to dance with her. Let's just say it didn't really last all that long cause the stare of death that they would catch from me knocked some common sense into them and they would back off.

Near the end of the evening my sister walked away from the dance floor. I followed her a few minutes later only to find some balding dood talking to her. I think he catched my drift instantly cause he stoppped talking to her within in a minute of my arrival. I just kept looking at him and he knew.

A mintue after that a dood who was previously 'dancing' with my sister walked by her and smiled. Well, I purposely moved into his way. He bumped into me. It was great! I didn't get out of his way. He bumped into me 2 more times and said excuse me and I ignored him. He then slid by me and said something about me being an asshole. I just looked at like he was about to die. I think he caught my drift cause he kept on walking.

Anyways, we left at that point cause my sister and Varsha knew that I was pretty much ready to start a fight with anyone who would look at them. At one point I had handed Varsha my jacket cause I thought it was really about to go down.

When we got into the car and started driving home, my sister told me that one of the doods invited her to an after party. Holy Shit!!! If she mentioned that at the bar
I would be jail. I swear to god.

Well anyways, I apologized to Varsha and my sister for ruining their evening, but I'm not the least bit sorry. I can go to bed with a clear concious. I know what those guys were thinking even if they weren't thinking it. I don't give a fuck if I ruined my sister's evening or got in the way between her and a possible soul mate. I did what I had to do.

I decided to take a nap when I got home from work yesterday. I woke up at 3 am and figured it was time to stop all this napping and get some sleep.

Meanwhile in a far off location, Matt was eating all my sausage.

Which Mean Girl are you?

There is a hair in your moose.

The alternate title of this post was going to be "Experiments in Hair Care Products" but I liked the other one too.

So I've been thinking about my hair. Yeah I think about my hair, and I ain't ashamed to say so. I came to the conclusion that my hair is very thin. Thin like an anorexic. So I need something to give it some volume. Much like the anorexic would need an I.V. (to complete the analogy)

I go to the local Superfresh to paruse the hair care product isle. I see this thing called Mouse, and a clip from T.V. pops in to my head where Angie Everhart
is saying how mouse is the secret to great hair. Who am I to argue with Angie Everhart? She has good hair, so I figure I'll pick myself up some mouse. I go with the this Aussie brand mouse with medium hold. It is at this point that I get a little suspicous. You see I'm not really looking for something to hold my hair. I just want it to appear thicker.

Well, I wake up the next morning and figure I'll give this stuff a shot. I shampoo. I condition. I get out of the shower, brush my teeth, etc. I finally get to the hair part of my morning routine. I brush my hair straight and reach for the mouse. I put a dolp of it on my hand and place it on my hair and somehow my hair just sucks the stuff up like a vacum. No need to really move it around. It just melts right into my hair. Well upon further brushing of my hair I realize that there is one incredibly stiff area of hair. Outside of that my hair was the same as it always was. No real difference.

So ladies, (if any of you ever read this) what did I do wrong with the mouse? Or did Angie Everhart lead me astray? Should I go with a different hair cair product? Let me know.

The Weekend

Well, if last weekend was shitty the following weekend turned it around . . .

Went to Happy Hour on Friday at the Fox and Hound in KoP. It was good. Drank with some people I knew and some people I didn't. Those crazy pharma industry people can throw the drinks down!

Wake up Saturday morn. Chill out most of the day cause it decides to rain all day. I decide to invite Matt over for the PSU game. Well, after the first Illinois drive I was a little scared, but then PSU decided to go up 50-3 by half or something like that. Well Matt says we should go to A.C. (Atlantic City).

With a little twist of my arm, He and I and the women folk hop in the car. We get to the Tropicana by 11:30 pm. It was some of the most fun I've had playing poker in a long time. The people were cool, and they were talking. I made some money then lost some money then made some money. We drove out of A.C. at 2pm on Sunday, and no we didn't have a room to sleep in.

I get home and pass out on my bed. After listening to the crazy Eagle's football game.

Wednesday, October 19, 2005

Not complaining just saying . . .

Homeboy, I've been working a little too much lately. I think I've done 3 straight 10+ hour days. Which I know is probably nothing to some people, but all work and no play make Jack a Dull boy.

But whatever, I'll probably leave a little early on Friday.

Monday, October 17, 2005


This lovely pic was taking during my 2.5 hour commute to work on Monday. Apparently a milk truck and a Deseil Fuel Truck decided to collide in a construction zone. Eh, I got hear the Weezer interview on Howard Stern, so not all was lost.

Jenkins Arboretum

This is Jenkin's Arboretum. It is about a 1 minute drive from my house and today was my first visit. It isn't very big but it is nice that someone decided to not build houses in a development.

(apparently I deleted the photo, oh well) Imagine a lake and lots of trees!

what did i do tonight? Not much. . . .

I had a nice gin and tonic though it really hit the spot. Sippin' it as I type.

I had to take the anonymous posting off because I was tired of trying to figure out how to delete the stupid spam postings. Although it cracked me up that one of the spam posting is for the picture of my sister wearing the penis hat. Is that really what you want your website associated with? I guess the spammer really doesn't care. Ah well.

Good Weekend?!

Did my first cyclo cross race this Saturday! It had rained for 2 days before so the course was nice and sloppy. I had fun and didn't come in last for my complete lack of fitness.

Then later in the day I found myself in a Babies R Us?

Oh yeah, and WE ARE . . . .!

16 silk containers!

Hugs and Kisses Everyone

No, I aint dead. Just watching too much T.V. What did I do this weekend? Funny you should ask . . . .

Friday morning I decide to that Saturday I'm gonna do this. That is right 24.5 miles through the hills of centeral Pennsylvainia in one day. I figure this should be no big deal (afterall I did an Ironman).

So I fly on up there in the "shit-mobile" with Bubba. I manage to keep his ass up all night snoring. I don't know what his problem was cause I slept through it fine.

So I'm at 5:45 am register for the event grab a cup of coffee, some oatmeal, and eggs. They had a pretty good spread for that early in the morning. Lots of people were already eating and getting ready. Looking at the people around me, I figure this should be no sweat. How hard could 24.5 miles be? How out of shape could I be?

Bubba gets his ass out the tent. He has his Camelback, and I figure we're hiking I should bring some rain gear in my backpack along with the 3 power bars and 2 24oz gatoraides. (this was probably my first of many mistakes.)

Everyone gathers at 7am. We chill for a train to get out of the way, and some doods yells go. We're off. Everyone is jogging. I'm thinking this is easy. I can jog this all day. Well after 20 minutes of jogging on a road we make a quick right for 15 minutes walking straight up a ridge. No switch backs like the crap I'm used to in Colorado. Straight up is the only way to go. Half way through I realize I was almost hyperverntalating. Not good.

We get to the top. I'm sweating like a something else. We walk down the other side of the rigde. Splitting up the walking and running as we go up some steep parts and on some of the flats. It was a good time . . .

Eventually, I fall behind Bubba at around the 3 hour mark. I'm starting to feel a little tired so I decide to walk. I'm 3 power bars and 2 gatoraides into the day, and it is only 10am. Well, I try running and I sense my legs cramping. This ain't good. I walk some more. At this point people are jogging past me without much stress. I keep walking. Try to run again. Ouch. Not to mention I've blisters on my feet that feel like hot coles. At this point I figure, the plan that had my finishing in 5.5 hours is over. The option plan of survive and finish needs to be implemented. I vary my pace between walking and sluggishly walking for the next 4.5 hours.

It was good time. There was a really fun part where the mountain was so steep you had to hold onto a rope as you climbed. Good stuff. They had a good spread of food at the end and some good beer. Can't wait till next year. I may even train for it.

Bubba finished in a very good 5 hours 57 minutes. I finished around 7 hours and 15 minutes. It was long day and my legs still hurt.

Yo yo

Took me an hour and a half to get to work this morning. Some trucker decided to hit another truck carrying 250 live goats on the East Bound PA Turnpike. Don't beleive me?

Read it here!

Luckily I decided to download the new K. West album from Itunes that morning. I tried to get people to throw around my frisbee as we waited, but no one wanted to get out of their car. No worries though, I was due for a traffic jam.

The Bianchi Axis should be here this weekend if I'm lucky. Thanks Peter. (When you can't make up your mind on a car, just a get another bike right?)

CycloCross season is pratically here, I still feel like I ate all the cake. This ain't gonna be pretty but I've made up my mind.

Wednesday, August 24, 2005


I am slow in the mornings. By "Slow", I mean not fast. It takes me an hour and a half to get ready for work. Now you may wonder what in the world do I do in the mornings that takes an hour and a half? The answer is nothing.

My breakfast is a coffee and a bagel. I walk around my condo reading websites and watching t.v. while eating them. I then hop in the shower. This takes a little long because for some reason I feel the need to condition my hair almost every day.

Afterwards, I brush my teeth, get dressed, and go to work.

I have no idea why my morning are so slow?

Then again I just wasted a good 3 minutes with this post, so maybe there are a few other things I do in the morning.

The Good Old Days

Ahh, I miss the good old days where the beer was free, the women were ugly, and I still wasn't getting any.

Sunday, August 21, 2005

No I didn't Die, I went on vacation.

I went on a week long vacation in Ocean City, NJ. It was good. I realized that I hadn't been to the beach in about 8 years, so I figure I was due. One day I forgot to reapply the sun screen. It just so happened that the way I was lying on the beach caused the right side of my body to get extra tasty crispy while the left side of my body was fine. It made for an interesting look the next day.

I had never been to a boardwalk before either. But that was pretty much what I expected.

I had some great beers while on vacation.
Terrible was awesome.
Summer Ale always does the job.
60 Minute IPA is another fine choice.
Ommegang Hennapin was also great.

And of course plenty of Miller Time!

Also, the doods at work had a 16 person poker tournament the day before I left. Yours truely came in second. Took home a $100. Gonna go buy myself something nice. Maybe a new bike. Or how about a new car.

Sunday, August 07, 2005

What did you learn this weekend?

I learned this weekend that I have a small penis. I always thought I was around the average, but apparently no such luck. This of course explains all those emails I get about "natural male enhancement."

Nada Surf . . .

Who here remembers Nada Surf? (granted they are easier to remember cause all that indie band stuff is sooo hip these days with shows like the O.C. and whatever.) But who can openly admit to having their full length l.p. "High Low" back in 1996. Yeah pass that cookie over my way.

Also Did I mention that John Denver was a genius? Well, If I didn't I should have a long time ago. He is right up there with David Lee Roth.

Hello hello . . .

That is right ladies, not only is the shaft an inch longer, but my grip is thicker too. Of course I'm talking about the new mizuno golf clubs I bought Saturday. I took them to the range twice so far and they are sweet. Yes, I did actually lengthen the clubs and get a slightly thicker grip on them. (really just to compensate for other things.)

Still Alive

Still alive after last night yo? The morning was a bit of a wash though. Oh well . . .

So I bought 2 Lacoste shirts this week. Actually I didn't have to pay for one of them cause I was returning clothes I received as a present in exchange for the shirt. (I mean who wears shorts with pleats?, please.)

Anywayz, I bought one yellow and one white. As it turns out these are the exact same colors I bought my Grandad and Dad for father's day. Worst of all, I didn't realize it, until someone pointed this fact out to me. It must have been some weird unconious thing, or maybe not.

All right so this was the most pointless post ever. I'll work harder next time.

Still Blogging Bitches!

That is right I'm still blogging! I could do this shit all night long! I don't know if I'm ever gonna stop. Someone better call Guiness World Book of Records cause I'm gonna blog this shit all weekend.

Hmmmm, I love you filthy bitches. You just want to read whatever I put down on on this fucker.

Fucking A'!

Time to finish my drink and watch the rest of Roger Doger.

Yeah, I was out tonight. It was a good time.

Rennie says "Ride your bike bitch!"

So I've ridden my bike 3 of the last four days . . . all to get ready for the Thursday night crit. I've even been thinking of shaving the legs. You know you love it.

Where do I find my inspiration? Well, I have a picture I have of K. Reenie (a cycling friend of mine) making some strange face at the camera and above it I put a post saying, Rennie says "Ride your bike bitch!" I posted this on the door of my bike room. (yes I have room in my condo specifically for bikes, I suggest you should buy some bikes and get one too.)

Strange? Indeed. Inspiring? Absolutely.

Cyclo-cross season is nearly upon us!

Eek Eek Eek, I'm a Cat. 5 squirrel

So I decided to go to the Thursday night Criterium ride in Great Valley Corporate Center this week. HA! It was not the return to greatness that I had invisioned in my mind.

I get there right around 6pm so the thing just started. I do a few warm up laps and try to hop on the back of the pack. My dumb ass tried to hop on when there was a break. Those doods where moving. I get dropped almost instantaneously but not before I realize that I completely forget how to really ride a bike. So I do another warm up lap and try to hop on the back again.

This time I find some inspiration. I see Huricanne Bob in the rear working hard. I hop on his wheel. I get to one of the turns. I see everyone pedaling through it. I must really suck cause I can't pedal through it. Despite my complete lack of handling ability I manage to hang onto the group for 5 laps. At one point I realized I am leaning the wrong way at the turns. Yeah, I am a Cat 5. squirrel. Bob made some joke about me being Cat 9. He maybe right.

I drop out the back. Do a few warm up laps and and then hop back on for another 5 laps.

In the end it was more than I could have expected out of myself having not ridden seriously for months. But what I didn't realize was how much I really missed going to it. Even though I only loosely know a few doods there, I have a great time just riding. This of course is all to reach a goal of cyclo-cross racing in the fall. I am going to try and ride 2 hours today.

Monday, July 11, 2005

O.J. is good for you, but how about your car?

Ahhh, First day at work! It was great.

Just to add some back story to this story. You need to know that I currently drive a 1997 Forrest Green Escort Wagon with 103k miles. Now, recently the car had to pass inspection. Normally this ain't a big deal, but this time I had to pay nearly a grand to get the peice of shit to pass inspection. Made me want to light the car on fire. This was about 2 weeks from today . . .

So I go grocery shopping today, and pick up some food. Mostly breakfast food (orange juice) and some lunch food. I throw my food in the back of the car. I drive 3 minutes to my condo and get groceries out of the car. As I'm walking to the door, I notice there is water dripping on my hands and feet. I didn't buy anything frozen that could be melting. WTF is going on here? I give my hand the smell test. hmmm. Smells kind of sweet. I give it the lick test. Kind of tastes like O.J.

Wait a second, I bought O.J.!!!! I put down the groceries, and pick up an empty O.J. carton from the plactic bag. A stream a curse words leave my mouth as I run back to my car to find a pool O.J. in the back seat.

Apparently, in throwing the food in the back seat, the O.J. carton landed on my ice scraper that poked a hole in the bottom of the carton. In 3 minutes the whole 1/2 gallon emptied onto my back car seat.

Needless to say, I was kind of pissed. I used whatever capret cleaner and paper towels I had left to clean up the mess. Hopefully, It won't smell that bad as I drive to work in the morning.

This can only make the car more attractive to the ladies. Am I wrong?

Hello Ladies?

Well, last night could have been boring but I decided to make it a little interesting. . . .

First the back story. . . when I get bored at a bar I will occasionaly turn to Bubba or whomever happens to be at the bar with me and ask, "hey, you want to make out later?" This usually gets some breif laughs. anyways . . .

I was hanging out at the Boathouse with Bubba, Kyle, and Kyle's woman. Kyle's woman is sitting on his lap, and Bubba is sitting next to them. I am standing for no good reason, when some random skinny dood sits down next to Kyle's woman and introduces himself to everybody.

We had noticed this dood earlier as he was hanging out with several ladies from "Q Jersey" (that was not my saying, they told the D.J. they were from "Q Jersey".) This of course only reiterates every suspicion I had about New Jersey. But I digress . . .

Well, this dood, introduces himself and we talk to him for a bit, despite the weirdness of the situation. (I mean he left ladies to talk to 3 doods and 1 lady who was sitting on a dood's lap. In my book, that counts as weird.) So we get the first uncomfortable silence. This when I seize my opportunity to see what this guy is made of. I slap Bubba on the shoulder to wake him up, cause I don't want him to miss this.

I turn to our new friend and ask, "Hey, you want to make out later?" He has no idea what to say for about 5 seconds and then weakly replys, "No, not really." To which I reply, "Are you sure?" He says "yeah." At this point, beer is almost spilling out of the noses of Bubba, Kyle, and his woman. There is more uncomfortable silence because if anyone opens their mouth, Beer is gonna spill from laughing too much. He just continues to sit there with this glazed look on his face. I have to walk away, because I'm about to fall on the ground laughing.

To my surprise when I return he is still sitting there! I talk to him a little more and eventually he gets up and leaves never to return.

It certainly made the 11 o'clock highlight film for the evening. We later returned to the land of West Chester to see "The Bean" at 15 North.

Saved by the Sprinkler

You maybe wondering what has happened to the Drive to 185! Well, It is all but over because I am planning on doing an Ironman in October. This being said, I figured it would be a good idea to go running. . . .

So it is Saturday around 12:30pm, and it is all of 93 degrees outside. I got up 2 hours ago and I've had my morning coffee. I figure, what better time to go run for an hour then now! Keep in mind, I haven't seriously run in weeks. I drink a glass of water, throw on my asics, and get my ass out the door.

I start out easy enough. Running a shady but rolling hill route to keep myself cool. I get 20 minutes into the run. I'm feeling pretty good. (Keep in mind the shade) In my infinite wisdom I choose to head down hill and run on Devon Park Road. This is a road through a treeless industrial park. I get there. It is an oven! At times I could feel my skin stinging from the sun. It was 2 miles of pain. By the time I reach the end of Devon Park Road, I'm a defeated man. I am talking to elephants that are drinking Margaritas as they read Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. It was a bad scene.

When I realize the elephants aren't really there, I decide to head back up the hill and get in the shade, even though it may make the run longer. Cursing my way up the hill, I run in the shade and tell myself I'm almost done. Then what do I see, but the greatest gift in the world. Someone is watering there front yard with a SPRINKLER! I was estatic! I run over to the sprinkler, and stand over the thing for 3 minutes. It was beautiful. I felt great! I continue my run, and within another 3 minutes I'm dry. By the time I got home I was hurting again, but damn that sprinkler saved my life. It was a great run.

I was going to write some funny bit about procrastination. It was gonna be great. I mean it was gonna be the funniest thing you ever read on the internet. But then I realized how absolutely tired I am since I haven't had any coffee yet this morning.

Life begins after coffee. . . . and this includes blogging.

Snoop Doggy Dog needs a Jobby Job

Guess what yall?

I just signed for a new job today? Damn Straight!

In July, I'll be working for Comcast! SWEET!!

To all my peeps at my old job, we'll still be chillin. Just outside of work.

I Think it was PM Dawn . . .

Remember that song with the chorus that goes something like this

Lovely Day, Lovely Day, Lovely Day
Love - ly - Day.
Lovely Day, Lovely Day, Lovely Day
Love - ly - Day.
Lovely Day, Lovely Day, Lovely Day
Love - ly - Day.
(A Lovely Daaaaaaay)

Well, it is stuck in my head at 8 in the morning.

Look at how early this Post is . . .

Sometimes all I need to do is lift some weights and everything is right with the world. Needless to say yesterday was one of the best workouts I've had in some time. I think taking 3 days off due to a busy weekend helped.

Other good news, I am no longer officially the smallest guy in the gym. I'm still fighting for the basement, but some skinny puke usually enters the gym and pretends to lift weights. That makes me feel really good. It used to be incredibally frustrating to lift weights while being out gunned by dudes twice my size. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a skinny puke myself, just a less skinny puke than the other skinny pukes.

I didn't get a chance to weigh myself this week but I think that is a good thing. I'll keep on lifting and see what next week has for me.

From the weekend news . . .

The US Pro Cycling race on Sunday proved in my mind without a doubt that cycling is the single hardest endurance sport a man can do. I don't care if you can run 500 million miles by yourself, cycling is a sport that is all about trying to make other cyclist feel pain. It kicks ass!

Stephen Malkmus is a rock god. If you don't know, you best find out! Stephen Malkmus

That is all I got people, hopefully this has quenched your thirst . . .

Living the Single (ply) life . . .

Need proof that I am living the single life? The only paper product in my condo is toliet paper. Quilted Northern to be sepecific. (Hey, I'm a big softy.) But you would be amazed at the versatility of this paper product. a Napkin, a Paper Towel, and a facial kleenex. Not to mention it's primary utility. Maybe I'll go to the grocery store tomorrow and pick up some real paper products, but until then don't worry about me I'll be getting by fine.

Guess what is in my Fridge?

I'm gonna clean my fridge in the next few days, or so I think I am. (i think we both know i won't.) Before I do, please take a guess at what in the world could be lying in my fridge. Hopefully, I'll get a digital camera so I can include some nice pictures cause I know they are there. I smell them everytime I open the fridge.

The Drive to 185

The Drive to 185 is my goal to someday weigh 185 lbs. Each Monday I'll post my progress.

"Drive to 185" Current Weight: 167

I am actually lifting weight, so please don't think I'm just sitting around drinking beers and eating chips and salsa. The reason I chose 185 lbs is that I beleive I will be bigger than my older brother if I reach that weight. Yes, I am that infantile.

If you want a great inspiration to lifting weights, watch the documentary "Pumping Iron." It follows Arnold Schwarzenegger as he goes for his 8th Mr. Olympia title. It is great! There are some classic on liners. The beginning has him walking into Gold's Gym with a "Arnold is Numero Uno" t-shirt and saying to the person working the desk, "I would like to start growing some muscles."

One warning though . . . I would not suggest this as a date movie. There is a lot of grunting and groaing in this movie as it is filmed in Gold's Gym. So just as you are putting the moves on your hot date, you hear Arnold grunting his way through a set of squats! Let's just say that it really didn't do much for me, but it maybe just what you need. How should I know?

The Giro

How come ever time I root for somebody in a major cycling race, they have a stage where they just fall apart? Last yere, Jan Ullrich didn't even make the podium in TdF, and then yesterday Ivan Basso falls apart losing ten minutes to the race leader in the Giro. Hopefully, he will recover and throw down for a stage win in the next week.

Also, If Jan isn't in the running for the overall tour win this year, I think I'm gonna curl up and die. The reason I like Jan is, he is know for partying in the off season. He knows cycling is his bread and butter, but he ain't afraid to live when he has the chance.

Anyway, now that I've bored you all with cycling talk. I should probably think about getting to work.

Easy Like Sunday Morning . . .

Well, I'm officially addicted to posting on my own web site . . . .

To paraphrase Henry Rollins, I am a man who talks far too much but says far too little.

Anyway, I'm off to work for a little rest and relaxation CRT side. I've got Bubba and live coverage of the Giro de Itallia to help me survive. Then I may stop at the lovely mall for some flip flops and maybe I'll pick myself up a digital camera. (How am I going to show you my collection of classic cars without one?)

Finally, I think a trip to Home Depot maybe in order. More on this later . . .
It is Saturday night, and I am still home. In fact minus a trip for a cup of coffee, a visit to my parents and a trip to Trader Joe's for a burrito dinner, I didn't really leave the house.

In my defense, it was a busy week and I started sanding the walls of my dinning room to eventually paint. I could write more about how my condo looks like I still live in college but then there would be one less thing for me to write about later.

I'll try to be more funny next post . . .

So Hot!!

I have no idea who this is but damn is he sexy! Posted by Hello

Still Wasting Time . . .

Could that previous post be anymore stupid? I was trying to figure out how to get pictures posted. Well, I did, and I lost a little bit of my manhood in the process. The picture was taken in Colorado and was one of the few digital photos I have.
