    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. :)

    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.

    Us solvaks are amazing masquerades of using capital fame when reprising an art.

    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?

    Sucky commute this morning. Wide performance tires + a lot of torque + uber slippery untreated roads == mucho skiddage.

    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.
