    I'm sharing my elation with my Foo family...

    I'm so damned stoked it's not even funny!

    I just got back from my Thursday night spin/trainer session at the LBS. I had a really great workout tonight.

    PLUS......I finally got my 04 5500 team bike back together with full 10spd Dura Ace. So just some bar tape and my favorite bike is back in action and ready for spring and warm weather. Man! I really love that bike! Wooo Whooo!!!

    PLUS..... I have the Project One Madone SL that still has yet to take it's maiden voyage.

    PLUS..... I had an awesome job interview on Tuesday and will know for sure by no later than the 15th whether I got one of the two positions they are going to have open. At last it looks like I might be turning a corner! (I'm keeping my fingers crossed for now though)

    OH!....Did I mention I lost another 2lbs this week. Yep.
    Just Do It..

    If you get the job, send one of your Treks to me because I don't have one and you have more than you can handle.

    Congrats, most esp. on the interview. Hope that one turns into major elation. Oh, and the two lbs. you lost, I found, so thanks for that.

    Thanks! The job is (hopefully WILL be) for another graphics and print company. A larger firm than my last one. Man! I hope I get this job!

    The good vibes people are sending must be working, because the parts I've been waiting for to put my other motorcycle back together just came in this morning as well. Wooo WHooo! Happy day! Happy Day!

    jsharr...no worries...I'll keep sending those extra pounds to you. Don't you know you're supposed to find someone else to send them to?

    I'll keep sending positive energy. Hey, jsharr, would you like some of my winter fat as well? I could stand to send you about ten pounds, if you don't mind terribly .

    Um, sadly, I have added about that much this winter, so no, my free fat receptacle is now closed.

    Congrats on the chance of a new job and all the other great news!! Sometimes it comes so hard and fast that it's confusing on how to handle all the good fortune! Hard work pays off, doesn't it? Good for you, Cycle! It's nice to hear some good stuff every once in a while.

    Hey Mike!

    I think it would be cool to meet up and go for a ride with you. Bicycle or Motorcycle.

    And here's a quick shot of the my favorite ride...the 04 5500 Team Bike all back together in it's Dura Ace glory. Weighing in at just 16.7lbs!
