celebrites' bicycles

Famke Janssen at my LBS this morning! Weird. She's like 6'3" and had a beautiful retro-tank of a bike. Some kind of internal front hub and the type of drivetrain that's totally encased. Sort of like a Bauhaus design or something. I'm pretty sure she was checking me out - though she was probably just after my Nishiki.

I assume you're talking about the bike-related outburst?

I live in a heavily bike-friendly Denver neighborhood. EVERYONE in the theater busted out laughing immediately after he said it.

Was it her smile that caused the fire hydrant to try hiding?

Yeah, whenever I have an erection at an inappropriate time, I always think of Nancy Reagan and that makes it go away pretty quickly.

I know what you mean. I'm the same way with Pelosi and "Ted Kennedy in a dress" Dianne Feinstein.

Yup sure is. Like an orange on a toothpick. That's junior in front. They're circling the neighborhood looking for Ronny - he wandered off in his robe again.

I would not be so hard on Nancy Reagan, an otherwise loyal Republican who has had the courage to speak strongly in favor of stem cell research.

When the Packers are in training camp, they have a long walk from the facility to the field.
For years, kids wait outside the facility and swap their bikes with the players and carry the player's gear to the field, while the player rides the bike. Some ride the same bike years.

Somewhere, there is a picture of Gilbert Brown, 300+, on a girl's barbie Schwinn.
