last run finished near my house so I kept the paratransit van in the driveway last night. so nice to be able to get an extra hour of sleep and have no commute this morning. First client pick up is only 2 miles from here. Time to feed the dogs and make some coffee. 32* outside.
Cold out. French press brewing.
It was a night of broken up sleep thanks to coughing like hell all night. Stupid cold. Fortunately my sleep tank had been sufficiently stocked over the prior 4-5 nights so I still feel rested.
I've gotten invites for two holiday luncheons for work and I have no desire to go to either. I just want to do my job without having to socially interact with these people. Is that too much to ask?
IAB just tell them that you are sick and will pass on the invite out of consideration for your fellow employees health....win win
Up early and caffeinated, I got a french press coffee maker and (a) it makes better coffee and (2) I've cut my consumption down to two cups.
Cold and dry down here, cold and dry up high.
Ah Thursday, glorious Thursday. Other wise know in my world as Thursday night space wizard party in the woods. The one night of the week when I have some people to ride with, who happen to have wizard like beards and magic in there fanny packs. Or hip bag brah....
Decided to rebuild my fork last night and was putting everything back together when tragedy struck. I tightened the hollow aluminum bolt that holds the damper to the lowers until it sheared in half then backed off 1/4 turn. Now I must wait for my $19 worth of bolt kit to ship to me before I can get it all back together and the rest of the bike back together.
Also replaced pads on my brakes and did a bench bleed when tragedy struck and I dropped the caliper into a jug of DOT fluid. Got everything cleaned up quickly but hot damn are my bike mechanic skills rusty.
Where were you yesterday?!
The bolt has been removed and installed at least a half dozen times since I bought the fork 7 years ago. In reality it was probably partially my fault, partially age. It really wasn't on there that tight...
I like your style.
Too many dos Equis last night...I was not the most interesting man in the world...but certainly the most hammered dad on my block. I regretted that decision immediately this morning.
There are voluminous amounts of emails here at work, and I'm just.....sitting here.....staring blankly into the screen...trying to will them to send responses without having to actually use my brain to think about the responses. 35 more minutes, and I'll be able to leave here in 6 more hours......
thanks @dan-o ...
Got all my lights green on the commute in this morning. it's not much of an accomplishment since there's only one, but I was rolling fast and carrying speed, so I decided to give it a little more stick and see if I could do it in less than 10 minutes (usual time hovers between 11 and 12 minutes). I was successful. 9:40. Only problem is I was a little sweaty when I got to the office. I really like this commute. I go over a river, then down by the river passing on grounds of the Museum of History and First Nations Hall (a recreation of West Coast native villages), right across from the Parliament buildings. At night there's now an outdoor light installation with 7 tipis that are lit different coulours. It's quite purdy.
this is where the tipis are now:
12 F out. Good day to being doing research stuffs from home after dropping off child the younger.
Feel ass here at work. Could not get to sleep last night.
Yesterdays group ride was great. It was snowing when we departed the parking lot and the ground was mostly frozen, so it made for some super sketchy and slippery hidden roots. I made it up a loose steep climb for the first time, which was nice. I walked it a few weeks ago and would have totally bet against myself to not make it.
This building has their Christmas lunch thing today. I really do not want to attend, but free lunch and that other jazz. I'd rather hibernate in my office.
Are you replacing the crush washers every time you remove the damper? I was told they were single use only.
Single digits here, first time this winter. No snow makes me sad. Took Dog #3 for a 5 mile run yesterday and now my cripple leg is killing me. Consuming coffee now, I expect to accomplish very little today.
Crush washers are always single use.
Fuck yeah motherfuckers.
Enjoy your day angry people! (ok only 70% of yall are angry)
Impromptu vacation over. Back to the dealing grind this morn. All new appliances installed and look great. 2 bags (so far) of trash just out of kitchen as we streamline and de-clutter. Appliances have a learning curve, which is going to be fun (touchy buttons to set temp/timer). And we're in for a cold snap (lower teens in the mornings). Did get Xmas tree and house light up.
Let today's fun begin, because I'm the man of my castle (until the wife gets home).....
yup. hit my (parked) car while backing out of the garage this morning when she was leaving for work.
I know your pain....told my wife I was going to get her a '78 jeep with primer paint and let her go hit all the shit she wants to.

I used my dishwasher yesterday for the first time in about 7 years. It works.
finally ran out of paper plates?
No but I typically have few dishes and washing is part of my routine. Just didn't feel like it. What will I do with all this potential free time??!?
Good news this morning. Looks like no surgery on the shoulder.
Bad news, received a 120cc mix of cortisol and lidocaine directly into the shoulder joint to start the day......
Wow. That's actually impressive you got a hollow aluminum bolt to last that long.....
Usually hollow aluminum boots give me blisters.
You are correct, they are single use only. That said, I have re-used a crush washer before when rebuilding my fork and noticed little difference. A tiny bit more weeping, but not enough to make a tangible difference before the next service interval.
I didn't know they were married. Good for them. Brokeback Mountainbikeriding
