    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    Morning monkeys!

    Watched a crew dig a hole and put in a trench box yesterday. How exciting. At least I was out of the office. Moar office today.

    Be safe out there.

    First run in a while yesterday afternoon. It was difficult, hot, and I was slow. It's amazing how fast you can lose fitness when you slack off, My legs are cooked and I didn't even run that far.

    Morning.

    Another fairly busy week of work in store for me. I'm not a fan of this whole being busy thing. I'd like to go back to weeks where I get paid just to show up.

    New girl at the office has a distinct resemblance to the boomerang kid in Mad Max.

    Going on a work trip for the Cannes film festival tomorow. I am hyped but dead tired since I am not a fancy shmancy place resident I had to do some preparation and that + extra work with the festival is damn tiring.

    On the bright side, watching movies and going to parties as a part of the job is something I can live with.

    Well, we do shoot at each other from our vehicles. Mostly just for signaling purposes, though.

    Howdy all. My big accomplishment yesterday was finally finishing detailing both of our cars. Pain in the ass, but badly needed. Here's a representative shot, noting the reflections/lack thereof on the hood:



    Much more on the experience in my thread: http://www.ridemonkey.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16951&p=3897732#post3897732

    Today my big accomplishment will be returning the random orbital + polishing pads used in this endeavor to the local Harbor Freight store, primarily because I'm a cheap bastard. :D (Secondary reasons are that the pads are ripping already and I ordered a dual action polisher so won't need the random orbital at all.)

    I hear that, man. I am just starting back up on the treadmill after my four month surgery break. My fitness level is there, but my legs are seriously lagging behind.

    'Morning, kids. While I am doing a pretty good job of cutting back the calories after putting on a few surgery pounds, when someone at work puts a cupcake down in front me, I'm going to eat the cupcake.

    I think I ruined my redneck imitation by knowing the term "keffiyeh"

    Three days until I start pedaling the Kokopelli... officially in "resting" mode. Been riding a lot, time to recover a bit to start the ride fresh. Rode with Nick yesterday, then drank beers. Ah yes... summertime!

    Morning Monkeys.

    New place is working out pretty well. The cat is still a little lost as to why I am 2 houses away and not in the old house, but she slept with me last night. She comes in/out via the window, seems to work out nice.

    I think I can also officially call myself a non-smoker again. I stopped when I first started to really ride again back in '99 and had not smoked in 10 years until shortly after the divorce in '09. I've been talking about stopping again for a while now, but it wasn't until I was set to move out that I decided I needed to sack up and do it.

    Of course on day 3 I got sick as a dog, but not smoking has helped the recovery process I guess. :)

    behind you, don't wait up.
    Good day.

    Managed to break a pivot bolt on my bike. I don't know 'when' but I discovered it near the top of a sh!tty long rocky climb (Belcher) and had to limp my way back down vs rip one of the better DH singletracks (Longhorn) in the 'hood. Case of the Mondays, indeed.

    Now I can't seem to get the broken pivot apart so I can replace it. *!#>*% bikes are dumb.

    Pffft. That slog up Belcher ain't so bad. "Normal" route: Belcher -> Mustang -> Belcher -> Maverick -> Longhorn.
