    No, I'm not dead.

    But sometimes I wish I was .

    We just moved to a new house and were without internet, cable or phone for a few weeks. But now that I'm back I got a lot of catching up to do. I quit my job at the metal shop and I now have a pretty decent one. from 10:00am till around 1:00pm I help mentally challenged people gain some basic mechanical knowledge and skills by helping them wrench on old bikes, then from 1:00 till 5:30 I work in a different part of the shop as a mechanic. The money is a lot less, but the job is a lot more enjoyable. I built up a new mountain bike as well which I'll post pictures of later.

    I also sold my Bronco to fund my WRX and I'm riding everywhere now, I pulled down 36km yesterday on my MTB and 49 on my BMX a few days ago. The fixed gear is still down as I need to find a proper lever for a bullhorn handlebar so commuting on that is out of the question.

    I also took quite a fall on the weekend, I was on a friends dirtbike coming up on 80km/hr when a deer jumped out in front of me. I ended up swerving and hitting a bump, it's all kinda blurry from there on in, I broke my helmet resulting in a concussion and dislocated my knee along with getting some cool looking flesh wounds on my leg. I also hurt my hip, again, so I'm going in to get that all x-rayed in a few days. The bike is fine other then a scratch on one of the plastics.

    All in all the last two weeks haven't been to bad, other then it's currently 31*C in the house, and 37*C outside. Did I miss any updates or big news?

    Ouchie on the leg, WTP! That knee does look a bit angry. I hope your hip isn't hurt badly.

    Most of the Foo hotties posted naked pics of themselves one day, but other than that, not much has really happened. Welcome back!

    I'm glad you're ok.
