Recovering from a severely sprained L ankle -- slid out on ice commuting to work 3 days ago, caught my fall, but heard and felt a painful SNAP in my ankle. No bones broken, I knew that before the 4-hour stay @ the VA confirmed it, but I'm gonna see today if I can walk some distance and possible ride at a slow pace. Gotten REAL good at getting off my low-slung bed one-legged....

I would like a new bike computer. You can order it online from the comfort of your home.

You should move your post to the "What Kind of Knife Will My Wife Use to Cut My B**ls Off for Buying Gifts for Other Women" thread.

BF appears to be dying a slow death. Judging by recent occurrences I am not sure that is a bad thing.

Anyhow, I had my first crash this winter today. Idiot peds not paying attention. I zigged into a patch of ice and went down on my right. Not too much hurt to me but I trashed a pair of expensive winter tights. Guess I know what Santa is getting me tomorrow. At least the bike was fine.

Yes.

I love tip up with thumbstuds and AO knives. Not so much with my Spydercos and other folders that have holes.

Had a nice family picnic today. Then I went and collected my "new" MTB; a Proflex 756 with XTR. Did the final inspection on my new house. By this time tomorrow I'll own 2 houses.

Just got home after a night out with friends... this is probably the best part of the holiday season for me.

Ride was nice... temp has started to drop and it's a balmy -30C right now... it is supposed to drop to -38C tonight.

I now offically own two houses. I'm knackered now though. I spent about 4 hours cleaning all the carpets in the new house after work. Now to finish packing and shift.

Evening foosters...

Just earned my level 2 geek badge after figuring out how to flash the bios on my netbook and get it running... the black screen of death made using it really hard.



And then I started overhauling the old pc... backed up all my images to this little machine and damn... there's a lot of porn.

Bike porn that is.

well, thanks to the magic of penicillin derivatives, I'm breathing a hell of a lot better then I was yesterday.
And according to the endo this morning, I'll most likely be shooting up insulin in about a month

I bet your version of a strip tease involves degreaser and taunting.
