    The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly

    The Good...I saw two deer last night on my ride home. I whistled at em and their heads popped up to look at me. Cool!

    The Bad...While crossing Rt 1 my left pannier decided to dislodge, almost dumping me in front of traffic.

    The Ugly...I freaked out a couple of roadies yesterday cuz I was singing along to the mp3 player while they were passing me.

    ...the song? Pink Houses by John Mellencamp of course.
    Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

    Good => Good!

    Bad => Hope it gets better soon!

    Ugly => At least you're not as Ugly as him! (always a silver lining!)

    -------------------------

    Good ~ Slowly buying a full Campy Chorus/Record group

    Bad ~ Approx 12-13mo till I can put any of it on the designated frame

    Ugly ~ My shifting with a 8sp rear cluster and 7sp shifters.

    -------------------------

    Good ~ Just had lunch

    Bad ~ During lunch run to LBS found out I may need to replace a rim.

    Ugly ~ Actually considering buying a rim and rebuilding the wheel myself.

    Well, first you put your legs up in stirrups, then you take a deep breath while...nevermind, I was referring to the other cervical area, aka the neck.

    Good: It's in the 70's, clear sky, and I'm taking the long way home on my bike tonight.
    Bad: I have a triathlon in 1.5 weeks and I don't think I'm quite ready!
    Ugly: My carpet. I just got moved into a new office and the carpet is totally revolting. Both in design aesthetics and level of wear/cleanliness. It's pretty threadbare and there are lots of big stains. It looks like someone dealt out some bloody murder in here or something. I'm trying not to look down at all.
