    Retail Theraphy + Bike Shop = $$$

    So after a long tenure of list lurking the Foo
    boards because of work being busy here's
    a random update. I really liked this chick
    I was dating--hot, smart, etc. But she
    kept me in a distant orbit while never really
    just saying she wasn't interested. She always
    would e-mail me re-initiating the interaction even
    though I felt like she was running cold. I got all
    sideways about it and finally pulled the plug.
    So technically I dumped her but I feel dumped
    somehow--the indifference combined with the weird
    methods of keeping me on the hook. So I wandered
    into my favorite bike shop. When I left they
    were building me a rear wheel. Phil high flange hub
    laced to Velocity rims with a Phil cog. Bye bye
    money hello durable rim. Dating is Russian Roulette
    of the heart. Bicycles are always there for me.

    I spent 43 dollars on Gap.com last weekend.. There is a reason I have not gone into a bike shop the past couple of weeks. Does that count?

    I haven't been dumped in 21 years. (She still loves me!) On the other hand, I am considering dropping some coin on an 84 steelie to get it rideable. Where does this put me?
    Slow, but at least still moving...

    In the same boat as me...though mine is a 70's steelie.

    this thread is just another
    piece of evidence that women
    are expensive.

    No, it's just another piece of evidence that men use women as excuses to buy themselves something because deep inside they know they don't deserve it.

    Yeah at least women have the gall to just bust out and buy what they want when they want. We can get away with things like that!

    I think it's just evidence that women try to get men to believe they don't deserve it.

    But of course, more to be spent on the women-insidious ploy.

    Well...Yeah. DUH. Pfft.

    Just a side note: I paid for that Moots all on my own. Took me two years to save for it. Nobody gets credit for that.

    If I worked overtime to buy it, I earned it. I deserve it, don't I?

    And thank you. It's my first road bike that I can ride. The one that was gifted to me was too big.

    its interesting to hear that guys do retail therapy, too... in their own way.

    I'm not much of a mall rat myself. After my last "him" I bought new race skis + boots + bindings + season pass + race lessons... gave me something to do for 10 weeks, though.

    I also dyed my hair brown, and bought a new car (did need the new shiny red car, but probably could have waited a bit)

    I think buying my road bike this spring was still part of my "keeping myself busy/finding new things, etc"... and is the best thing I could have done.

    race skis...hrmmmmm maybe I will get some of those too. My p70's are old. But I have gotten into tele skiing this last winter and want to stay with that.

    I'd love to get into tele!
    or buy a snowboard.
    or perhaps a speedboat...
    a trip rafting the amazon?

    looks like I need to end another significant relationship, then I can make up excuses to do crazy things

    tele is fun. So very very very very very (add many more "very" s) different then alpine. I am slowly getting better at it though, definitely worth while picking it up. Of your 4 choices I think Tele is the best :-P
