The End of the Semester

So the semester is drawing to a close and I am typing this instead of my final paper for my philosophy class, because well it is is not due until tomorrow at noon. The 24-hour crunch will kick in soon so I guess I will knock it out soon, TURNITIN.COM, then go drop off a hard copy of an a final in the Patterson Building, go buy some Holiday Presents on my bike ride home, eat some lunch, kick my dog, and go to work for a little while.

I am excited to say we have some cool stuff in the works over at the bike shop. People are buying fancy bikes and my bills are still getting paid. I mean this truly, I will write a post soon and explain what happens when you buy your cocaine, errh I mean bike parts, from a local shop. I make the joke about cocaine because let's face it. . . everyone has a vice. Some people get drunk three times a week, some people spend student loans on bicycles, some people shoot guns, others like my mom make scrapbooks. It's all relative because what you spend your money on to make you smile is a good waste, because when you die you can't take stacks of cash with you.

Another thing I am excited about is the ability to ride some cool new bikes in the year 2010. I am going to get something fancy, and only two people know what it is. But one of them grades my papers and another entrusted his super-secret and totally awesome fantasy build to me so I think he won't leak the news. When you see it on the road or trail you will know what it is.

Shucks I couldn't resist. It's a tandem that my dog can pedal the stoker seat. Not.

24-hour crunch starts soon.
More posts this week, with pics, and maybe a tentative race schedule for 2010.

Boycott Starry Nights

So I am sitting at work on the day before Thanksgiving and I have decided to follow through with blogging. . . 6 weeks later.

The idea of Starry Nights makes me want to scream. Dig up a park to run electricity, pack a beautiful park full of these electric skeletons that are a daytime eyesore from hell sounds good so far right? At night we can light these "green" LED bulbs. What is green about running a light that has no purpose? The problem continues when the family loads up the biggest gas guzzler they own and idle through Shelby Farms polluting the park with exhaust for the poor buffalos.

I don't normally get all tree hugging fanatical but this is something that really bothers me.

Enjoy your turkey.

The First Blog

So I used to blog when MySpace was cool but a time came when I gave MySpace the boot.
The next big things on the web was FaceBook but I am getting tired of Applications saying "Help _____ dump a body in Mafia Wars." So after enough rofl-ing and lol-ing at all the cats and "goggies" on the interwebs, I decided this would be my spot to praise or rant products, ramble, or just generally inform the 3 people who may read this about what I see in the world.
