That sounds fun! Have a great time Dex and Dex's girl.

No plans yet for this weekend. I'm going to Tennessee next weekend so will probably go cycling with the kidlet (which means -mph - but that's okay)....though her daddy has been talking about taking her hiking so maybe it'll be me alone. Right now, I'm burning work time and waiting to meet DLO at the eye doctor though FIL says he's not going to allow us to go there. OH THE DRAMA. Remains to be seen what he has planned and what the heck makes him think it'll work.

Hi superdex.

Tonight? Work, eat, sleep. The usual. I should send off my payment for my cable bill, too.

This weekend? Work Saturday, as usual. If I'm lucky, maybe my new bike will be ready for fitting on Saturday afternoon. I don't think that will be the case, though. Team Estrogen bike ride on Sunday.

Just getting a ton of stuff done today at work. Its been a pretty good day today it has finally cooled down here.

This weekend just a lot of riding getting ready to do the RSVP next weekend. My brother is coming up from San DIego to join me. We are going to do some serious partying in Vancouver when we get there. We do not get a chance to drink beer, smoke cigars and tell lies together that much any more. Should be a lot of fun

Well, the AC went out which contributed to one of the switches overheating, most people lost connection. I thought I fixed it all, but it appeared to be a compound problem because now people weren't leasing IPs from the DHCP server at all. After determining the router or switch wasn't the issue, I fell back onto unplugging and replugging everything back in. Wouldn't you know it, it worked

!!WTF!!

In any case, I saw Clerks 2 so now I'm happy again.

Speaking of tandem kayaks, I went kayaking for the first time with mirona's mom (also a first-timer) today and it was awesome! We had a rental but I think I'm going to buy one. Tonight, I'm going to make reservations for the Lancaster ride unless I fall asleep. Chances are that I'm going to fall asleep

Don't act all overly competitive and be yelling at her to keep up and hustle during the race. I saw that just crossing the GW bridge once and it was just a couple out for a nice ride and the dude was yelling at her to "get tough".

No plans for the weekend excep the honeydew list.

Sweet! What kind of kayaking did you do? We just went down a river with some teeny rapids and still managed to roll it I'll be icing the knee for a while. No one told me there were rocks in the river!

If I know this young lady at all, she'll be yelling at me to take it more seriously -- she's doing the Livestrong ride in August, and though it's not a race of any kind, she wants to "place" in the top ten of her age group. Needless to say she's a little competitive. Should be a good time

Careful dex. If she catches you checking out any of the other talent, you might be needing the helmet from your old avatar.

Icing the knee is why I'm paddling... wah

I enjoyed a bit of a lake paddle on a sit-on-top kayak. No rapids, not even the teeny sort, but had to out paddle a big thunderhead and bit of a sprinkle. By the time I made it back to the dock, the storm passed and I paddled for another half hour. I may even go for something a little more challenging this weekend

I met up with an old buddy to see Clerks 2 last night. We decided that the wives did not need to see such filth-flarn-filth. As expected, the movie was so-so. Too many attempts at a sappy plot-line really slowed it down, but there was enough reference back to the original classic to make it worth the while. The ending was perfect and brought it all full circle.

Oh yeah, and I had a beer at a bar before hand! I know, I know, that's not that exciting, but with two young'uns at home, it's been a LONG time since I sat at a bar and knocked back a pint....

Heyas!

Most of the nest week will be playing Half-life 2 and the "expansion" that was just recently released.

HL2 is an awesome game....pretty much pure adrenaline from the get-go.
