Reading docs, writing scripts, drinking coffee that might be too strong.
Getting ready to head across town at lunch to drop off some library books. The boy ripped the dust jacket off of one and as such has lost his library privileges for a while.

Just hanging out at home, cyber window shopping for some camping gear, mapping a route to a state park I haven't been to, wishing I was retired.

Currently, drinking a mug of cheap swill that was labeled coffee (blech), copying a table, and writing a SQL.
I need a vacation.

Upgrading some stuff and also drinking coffee. After that, a meeting, a trip to the post office, and I guess I am upgrading more stuff after that.

I am quite jazzed up about the lunch ride I am scheming about for tomorrow.

Letting dinner settle after what was a really long day.

Got nuked this am and then after lunch went for the 3D scan of my entire spine and then had x-rays... I bet I glow in the dark now.

Drinking coffee, studying for a brutal exam, shopping for a new bike to remind myself that this whole trainee thing is worth it.

^Sorry to hear that MV.

Sitting here at work, after the first snow/ice fall of the season. Have a humongous headache. Wishing I was back in my bed, dreaming about winning the lottery and moving to Bora Bora.

Loading about a 1.5M rows of data this morning and prepping a report so it can fly out the door after lunch with said data summarized in a most useless manner.

Holy cow it is wet out there. Getting home last night and getting to work today were both "wring out your shoes" sorts of rides. Also found a leak in the attic this morning. Guess I will have to go find some sealer and go at the roof a little.

Also, I soooo wanted to n+1 yesterday. The LBS down the street has an old Trek 520 (and I mean probably 80's old) that someone converted to a SS. it was either so old as to have 27" tires or the frame is waaaay too big for me, I could not tell.

According to vintage-trek.com, it should be a 1984 based on the color and it should have 27" wheels. Hmmm...
