I don't think most of my blather usually deserves a dedicated thread. So, I'll just contain it here.

One of our neighbors is an artist. Over the weekend she mentioned to my wife that the garbage disposal was jammed up. My wife (the loving person she is) volunteered me to go over and replace it. :rolleyes: It didn't take very long and the neighbor volunteered to do a couple of large paintings for us in exchange for the work if we provided the canvases. I'm stoked!

We bought two 40" x 30" canvases and I printed out some bike photos to give her for inspiration. She said she'd put together a few sketches to see what we thought. I'll scan them in to share when I get 'em. :thumb:

Without trying to put a damper on this thread I think it already exists here. Far be it from me to stop a thread about nothing though. I mean we had Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm; no reason we can't have two of the same thing here as well.

Monzie, my search-fu failed me and I completely overlooked that thread. Thank you! I'll move right over. Mods, feel free to do as you wish with this thread. Kill it or let it die of natural causes. :)

JD, That "K" is sick, who's handstyle is that?
A chick on the 67-72 Chevy Truck site painted it for me based on basic input (that is the color of my truck and I like choppers) and when it was done, a friend of hers did the stripe work and it's crazy. I love it and she was awesome to do it and ship it to me for free. All I did was mention how bad ass another trike she did was (lowrider style) for another guy. Turns out the guy she painted the original for is here in Portland as well. He builds custom lowrider trikes on the side. Small world, I say.

In the detail shot, are those brushstrokes or wood-grain showing through? It's an awesome painting for sure. I'm not much for frivolity but a not so secret desire of mine is to own a 24" lowrider bike. Absolutely no practical application or use but they just look badass.

Talk about rambling...

All was good the summer of 2009 began and the spring of 2009 had ended. New under me is a Haro Mary 29 and deep in me is a high amount of marijuana residue. Don't use anything other then so I wind up on this navy base. Racing submarines, just had finished with 3rd place on my bicycle that weekend. While on base and not getting stone I got on Skoal citrus. Great stuff if you like passing out in the sun and waking up so fogged you can be anywhere and not understand the difference. Beer here and there I was just 18. Skoal became regular, daily, addicted.

College began that fall, moved away. Yay. Dip in mouth more then not. Pot on hand when not it was. Then comes almost the end of the first month of moving away from my family. The LSD came on then all was good, just couldn't handle dipping tobacco. I would give up the dip and use the LSD when I wasn't dipping. Making it through semester was fine next year I began hustling pots. Pot user from Vietnam the infamous popper. He would get a pot I would get OC he would get speed I would get more.

Summer comes round, all is the same as spring. Not much bicycle racing. Oh I stopped racing that October and was off the bike all through winter. The annual Single Speed a Palooza rolls up and bam there I go sniffing speed in the rain. I make half of one lap and quit. I drove home and haven't raced my bicycle, any races any days.

Began smoking cigarettes another demotivation. That summer began the pack per day. Dippless cool chicks dig that redneck with a camel over that redneck with the skoal. Everything changes I get better and better. Hooters were ringing my ears off. Then new years eve 2010 comes up. Phreaking concert goer lets me overdose on that LSD. I freaked out and cut my hair. Still using speed and banging my dreams of the teens. No more LSD use in 2011.

Summer came round and I wound up lost in a festival in West Virginia. Next thing I remember is overdosing off coke and until now I mean now hated food. Despised the thought of eating. After that 2011 concert I wind up back in college. First day before classes I get me and myself arrested. Running from the police officer on foot drunk on a quart of rum. Three days later arrested from the same officers trespassing.

Oh somewhere between cutting off my hair and West Virginia I was kicked out of the dormitories and this is why I was trespassing. Nice cops, they joined my court dates on the same day.

2012 rings in kind of drunk now that I just turned 21. Found some LSD in a VW Rabbit took off running down forrest lanes. That day after I rode 30 miles road.

Did some more tripping around and eventually burned out. Now I had a very nice car. A really good ego and whenever I had a chance I could decide on ruining my ego I did. Then I found myself ****ing scum.

Couldn't handle this and was deep in a hole. On my birthday I overdosed coke. Threw up so much coke the next day the sewer rats are probably forming the next jam band.

New Years Eve I passed up all drug opportunities. Did drink 2 magic hats, and smoked cigarettes. Those drinks were more then I needed. Couldn't follow that show.

Hadn't drank anything in public so I went out bar hopping. All those dudes in the bar when I left didn't go anywhere. We had what was fun. Just not worth it in the morning. The next day I had two orange juices and one beer. I couldn't hold conversation with strangers after 1 beer. That is all it takes. Bars are entertaining while sober when seen another way it is mostly sadness. Life is sad suck it up, cover your own grave will you?

Smoking cigarettes why I cannot explain other than dad smoke camels so I did too. Also the first camel I found was on Diablo Freeride Park. Someone dropped a pack and so I smoked it. Thought it was okay until I realized. I haven't got a girlfriend. The only girls I have been with in the past year didn't stay with me over a night. The last relationship I had was a month in 2011. I could of had my ego and motivation continuing setting and achieving goals. I have got nothing as a goal achieved in 2012.

I don't know how I'll get my cross country racing again, back into that stuff is annoying. I podium top 3 in the last year I raced cat 3. That last year was 2009. What are the rules on reentering racing? Must I move up and race cat 2? This is sandbagging as much as I see. Looking forward in racing no matter what it takes. Side idea off racing is riding. Getting left out of trail riding, and maintaining of path is not fun. I used to really enjoy that.

Nice picture.

It is raining outside for the third day in a row. Would be nice to go for a ride, did 37 miles yesterday, can't do it again. The rain was miserable.

I feel free here.

Is this what you meant by misc. ramblings?

Just saving this for when he sobers up and deletes everything...:weee:

Story of the night ... How PSP goes through so many cars.


It was the birthday party turning 17, dad gives me those covalent keys that start his VW Jetta. Wasn't a running car but it has four round wheels. We get it started running safe and well it is New Jersey's New Years Day my first day behind the wheel. Solo maneuvered my cell phone text message while dodging a telephone pole. Banged everything out of place just wasn't as good as I hoped. Wound up dating the chick from the text a long time. Drove that Jetta 5 broads and 60,000 miles. Brakes gave out so I needed another.

Jetta two rounds out some odd numbers probably another 6 broads and 40,000 miles. This jetta makes new drive ways wherever. It is also baltic green and has fancy wheels. Everything loves it until rocks kiss the door shut. Insurance claimed it by then I had another on the way.

Funds allow this yellow S4 from some dude who had it. Found this on craigslist and picked it up. Fast as speed and light. I could hit 100 in 4th gear, spool up twin turbos. Quattro was nice going over twisty bridges not so much lighting burnouts in the parking lot. Sacked the bike real well in the back. Packed the truck of a pontiac G6. Let it leak and didn't ever get laid in the ownership was not long. I never miss a day without thinking about that car. School bus yellow 6 speed 6 cylinder 2 turbo fast.

Rental a month Mazda 3 with auto shifter. I like auto shifting short term borrowing cars those kind that you give back when you cannot afford it anymore. After a grand in rentals it was time to get another. Of what did I want and how did i know what I wanted. Oh yeah after crashing the S4 I arranged a sleepover with a friend who wasn't loud enough saying don't stop all she said was stop. Such a dumb fool. Heck if you wreck an S4 you are dumb enough as it is. I am dumb on drugs. Week prior some chick gave me her phone number. Gave me a ride home banged me since the other wouldn't speak up. I wind up catching google history when she looks on my phone hickey removal. Anyway she got mad and banged me months later anyway.

I was mad she and I didn't get close. Everybody was assuming we would if I wasn't majoring in **** up and minoring and trucking. What I did was get a look at a Mazda Miata. Took in a 5th of honey whiskey and began drinking 9 in the morning. Took the trip home early instead of waiting for that bang that got away's thesis. Test drove a miata then so nearly wrecking. Brakes in NA miatas suck and so I played wasted make a deal with me. Dove the price a few hundred from the yewsed car dealer. Didn't buy it from them got a different on craigslist. I only got my miata since I was drugged. You drive a miata you are either addicted or were on anything during your life or time of purchase. A girl, or Homosexual.


1983 GTI Rabbit got started on rebuilding, I got stoned. Not ever finishing. Freaking put that bunny on craigslist. I got it sold telling them no registration. Can't be on the road. HE was okay we put it on the trailer by idling. Next day I got my new camera. He got big and angry on vw vortext with selling it again more then i sold it upon writing how it doesn't run. He should have known better.

Still raining. Broke out the trainer and made through 35 minutes before I could not stand it any longer. Might have to go out tomorrow in the rain and slog through it before I go freakin nuts.

A very attractive young lady just came up to me and started talking to me today. As I am not accustomed to this happening. I suddenly became Retarded, and made the fatal mistake of opening my mouth.

Should have worn the bar mitts today. Cold out there! On the news when I got home, was a story about a body that was found dumped less than 2 miles from my house (out in the sticks). My ride took me within .25 miles of said location and I had no idea!

Tried registering in some photo class. I write a long email. Chair receives this after his office hours. No reply missing first day. He won't let me in since of some complication with his faculty. About had it holding items for the mob. Might drop a few if we meet. He better sign me in class. Green eyed music pirate won't answer my facebook asking if her miserable class is about the class I didn't show up on. Really not digging high school in college. Might just go back on drugs whenever I don't get answers. I get the urge whenever I am overlooked. Hold on as your life is overlooked by everybody. You feel ok doing this? I should never have quit drugs.

The scary thing is, she was all rednecked out. Mall redneck though. I doubt she's held a gun in her life and wouldn't know what to do with it if she had one. So I guess it makes sense.
