    We can tell you haven't been drinking much.

    It's champagne bud.

    Edit: If your mom did that, we'd have to have a serious talk.

    Are liquids included as "feed"? That would make sense if they allow them when it is warmer.

    They aren't allowed to hand out water bottles, that is considered feeding.

    When was the last time anyone attended a baby shower?

    Someone asked me to post an announcement for one on a Facebook group, and now it says that I'm attending.

    I can't remember the last time I attended one.

    I've know the couple for several years, so you can make the argument that I should attend, but I can make an argument on moral grounds against attending any such event.

    Men don't go to baby showers unless they're the dad.

    Jen, did you ever solve your noise issue? Too lazy to go back through the entire volume of posts.

    None? Invitations I see at church (such as the one I just posted) often indicate that men are invited. But my hunch is that only a handful of unlucky ones actually attend.

    I don't even know what people do at them besides open gifts, but my gut tells me they are mind-numbingly boring.

    Just came in from viewing the Perseids Meteor Shower. Set up our chairs at the top of the hill behind our house and saw dozens of meteors streak across the northeastern sky over the course of about an hour and a half.

    Sure, every few minutes there was a fairly good-sized one.

    There's still time. Go outside. It lasts through the night tonight.

    I don't get this. I have 5K on mine, my wife has 6K on hers. Both run as smooth as the day we got them.

    I daresay that the Mechanics forum, namely Jive Turkey and SixtyFiver, are great with the online assistance. They don't show up much here in the 41, let alone the Addiction thread. I'm sure the LBS will take care of it too.

    Razor was right about something!

    After I unsuccessfully attempted to patch my double puncture tube (it exploded), I patched another used tube. Again, the patching seemed to work, but the project was a fail due to a valve issue (too short).

    So to summarize I wasted two patches, spent time messing with two tubes, and in the end I broke down and opened a fresh tube.

    I felt so defeated.

    Speaking of defeated. I need to mount that new tire and patch a tube before my ride tomorrow.

    The patched tube will be my new spare. We'll see how much air I can get out of the bugger.

    I went looking for 10 minutes or so. I faintly saw what I thought was one (it was fast!).

    You can only see the brightest of stars directly overhead here. Too much ambient light. The interstate is close enough that you hear the constant roar of semis.
