Well, one other guy in the group and I have interviews for a promotion today with the boss. I was up with a sick kid last night, I have a cold, and I am not dressed up. He's 28 and single, and wearing a suit today.

Nice day here as well, and like Ben, I am sick and sleep deprived...but I took the next two days off to recuperate. Looking so forward to just lazing.

Got an email from the boss, apparently not allowed to have cups without lids now.

Please pardon me while I scream.

9 mile ride to the audiologist in the rain this morning. I will take it over the snow, though.

Replaced the ceiling fan in the living room before I took off, though.

It was so windy today that I was blown into the traffic lane and had to get off and push my bike. Two people stopped and asked if I'd like a ride but I could see that the road curved 200 yards ahead and I'd be protected. I rode into a cross/headwind for a couple hours then it died.

Another long one. Unfortunately I am working all weekend and all through next week. I'm finally saving, but almost full time school and work and helping my parents out constantly is taking its toll. I need to plan a week off some time in the near future.
