I try not to use the air. I'm used to being inside of refrigeration all day so coming home to a nice toasty house is comfortable. Even on the way home from work I don't use the air or even roll down my windows in that kind of heat.

I'm going for beer and likely pizza for dinner. It's a much needed unwind after the work day.

One mini pizza cannot absorb 2 pints worth of strong Irish Red Ale. Just sayin.

It's a darned good thing I'm a happy drunk.


btw, i'm currently feeling quite happy.

I think I am dying. I feel like someone is stabbing my lower abdomen with a knife to the extent where walking/getting up doesn't work. Off and on. Haven't decided if it is worth going to the doctor for. Hope my organs don't explode.

Where is the pain located? You might have appendicitis or a kidney stone.

I ruled out appendicitis because it isn't the right side plus the pain would come and go depending on my activity(moving around or sitting). It is more central both sides if anything. It seems to be cooling down. It started yesterday and was apparent earlier today. Some pain like I have never felt before though. I wonder if I strained a muscle or something of that sort.

Well, everyone dies eventually, but you really shouldn't hurry it along if you know what I mean. Better get yourself checked out.

Found these in the office today while cleaning out. They made me feel old. My mother gave them to me.

I finally own a pair of pants better suited to riding than jeans. I'll still ride in jeans frequently, for in-town stuff, but before the end of the month I'm hoping to ride down to Mt Vernon for the Tulip Festival, and wearing jeans on a ride like that didn't sound very appealing to me.

I'm angry at bike thieves right now.

My wife's almost 9 year old step brother just had his bike stolen. This was a cool old red Huffy BMX that I put together for him. Didn't cost much (I got it practically free, but had to do some work on it), but damn, he really enjoyed it. He had it in their backyard behind the fence, and didn't think to lock it. Someone swiped it right from their backyard.

What'd you get? I kinda want some pants better for riding than jeans. I ride to work daily in jeans, but that's only five miles.

Ectopic pregnancy? Ovarian cyst?

Bit 'left field' and extreme, but something to consider.

Some sort of lightweight REI pants. I'm guessing they're meant for hiking, but they're super lightweight and let me move a lot more freely than jeans. They're definitely not cycling-specific, but I like them because they just look like ordinary khaki pants, for the most part. I'm planning on testing them tomorrow.

In other news, I just took this drawing, which I've posted before, and changed the paint to chrome, changed the lug shapes, changed the bag and tire colors, and added a bunch of reflections that you can't even see in this small size:

I just did my favorite little tattoo piece. I went from hating drawing/shading skulls to basically mastering them. Just gotta keep drawing them over and over.

surprisingly a lot of people i know. Honestly I'd pay good money for serious permanent work but these people obviously don't care that I'm a noob.
