Flew from Denver to Bozeman at 8am. Slept for 3 hours after getting home and have since been sitting on the couch giving my best Jabba The Hutt impression.

Almost managed to play 30 seconds of Yngwie's "Baroque and Roll" at 1/5th the speed it's supposed ot be without screwing it up....I discovered why it was so hard, his guitar has every single string tuned down one note....D to D instead of E to E....that made everything fall into place

Really, guitar is not hard to learn....something I did learn....screw the instructional discs, CD, books, etc....just get some sheet music and or tabs and start from there....once i did that, I was learning FAR faster.


Oh, and the music stand can handle holding my laptop, so that's all good (no printing, save the f-----g trees!!!! woot!)

Wait, I wasn't on Foo?

I've been on the computer for most of the day so far. Even fell asleep for awhile with it still on my lap. I got the non-computery stuff done yesterday, so I guess today is for lazing about.

Did a 60 mile training loop with some serious climbing. I'm looking to take the gold in the 24 hour Texas Time Trial - recumbent division. 500 miles in 24 hours baybee!

Then home, nap, sex, and about to run out to see the new Pirates movie. Go me!

Wha? How is that even possible? It takes double century riders 12-15+ hours to do two hundred miles. You'd have to average over 21MPH for the whole period to go 500 miles in that time!

Wrote two weeks' worth of lectures, graded 40 quizzes, wrote part of the final exam, designed a study guide for the exam, and prepped for tomorrow's lecture.

got up early to ride some hill repeats to get my flatlander legs semi-prepared for the Horribly Hilly Hundreds three weeks from now. went out to lunch with the family. bought some curtain rods. grilled up some hot dogs and had some corn on the cob. took a two mile walk after dinner to lessen the guilt of eating too much. now about to go have a beer and start winding down. the end.
