Um, I have a blog, and I'm the administrator of a little bike-related site, remember?

Of course, one more year that I can't go because of school. I'm lucky to even get the opportunity, but school comes first

I'm much more interested in meeting the people and seeing the new goods than test riding bikes in the stinkin' desert. And we've only got room for so many pairs of clean undies with the Goldwing. So we're just going to Vegas. If I decide to risk bringing the laptop, I'll have bike porn on my blog each night.

I plan on going to Vegas too. The first part seemed boring.

That's a long ways for a guy who mostly likes old bikes to go. Maybe when we recover from tuition bills.

Yeah but when someone who likes old bikes goes to something like this, it makes them appreciate their bikes even more!

Make sure you get passes to the Sinclair Imports party. Always the highlight of the show (at least for me). My wife manages a bike shop so I always get a pass to the show. I think the longest I've spent at the show is a little over 1/2 a day. That was the first year I went, when Interbike used to be in Anaheim. Last year, I was at the show for an hour. I like bikes but I get bored walking around looking at all the bike stuff, most of it is unobtainium any way since I'm going to ride what my team gives me. There are always a couple of cool things to see. I usually just see bike people but that would be cool to see Rodman.

You've got a point, but I don't think I can swing it this year.

Good for you, I mean not cause I'm <cough> involved with a local college - but the first few weeks are crucial for your class. I've seen students in trouble basically travel from one receptionist to another till they whine/bully their way into seeing a counseller to say that they have only really missed one class day due to sickness, and then the family emergency took over, etc - and then they are asked if they called the professor - perhaps try to take the class another time, get a green slip etc and they dont and then it doesn't work anymore.

Good for you in treating school as No. 1.

I've seen some remarkable success stories - where a person, homeless basically sleeping from someones couch to couch - she was desparte when she came in to register - or try to register - she didn't think she could qualify for a school loan - and school houseing - and she did - became a peer leader - graduated on the deans list and I still remember her face when she found out she got the loan - she actually glowed with happiness. And I'm sure with her attitude she will be successful wherever she goes - her aim was transferring to a 4 yr school, not sure what major.

Again good for you.

OK, back to bad Tude.
