EATING spaghetti off of a dirty carpet.

That's right. Pour some yummy spaghetti onto a dirty carpet, soiled from animals and littered with hair and rodent droppings.

That was my day. Minus the spaghetti.

Not only did I clean a closet full of JUNK and rodent droppings that took me an hour (edit: 3 hours actually...), but my computer is all jacked up now and I cannot play any games. (Secondary Master HDD not booting)

So in an attempt to ease my pain, I brought my Scott in and decided to put on some carbon fiber spacers I got a few months ago from PBK. They will look cool along with my CR1 fork I added on last year. I've done this stuff before. It ain't hard at all. Just sliding the old ones off and putting the new ones on is all there is to it, pretty much.

And 10 minutes later, I have a huge scratch on my top tube, a busted CF spacer, and CARBON FIBER SPLINTERS IN MY LEFT HAND.

I will be on the DENALI tomorrow.

Man, that sucks. I've had days like that. Last week, I bought an external drive for one of my machines as a backup drive... and it had a hard disk failure before I got home to install it. Thankfully, nothing was lost, but it meant a good time rebuilding the box.

If you cannot put on headset spacers, should you really be riding a bike with only two wheels?

Enjoy the pasta.

Does that mean you have to drink Evian when you ride?

So, if it is minus the spaghetti, what are you saying? That you ate a dirty carpet?

Good thing it wasn't the right hand or you'd be dateless this weekend!
