Hopefully I will have the basso done by then also.

i can't imagine hating that basso. it's got an understated elegance, like it doesn't need your approval.

also, in my dehydrated delirium i managed to lose my keys on saturday as well. i used them to unlock my bike from Asylum, and that's the last time i saw them. anybody see some on the ground? nondescript keyring, three regular keys (one with a pink plastic thing) and one little key with a black top. getting back into my apartment was a *****, not to mention clipping my bike lock in front of murky coffee

anyway, good times on saturday. way to go pirate peloton for "winning" the old fat guy training ride (if only they had known it was a race) and great times at the hunt. thanks again chimbly for putting it on.

How did you lock your bike in front of "murky coffee" (whatever that is) without a key? I can only open or close my locks with a key. Maybe you lost it there?

yeah, i spent a loooong time looking around that whole area, i'm pretty sure they're not there. thanks though. it was a cable lock, and i don't lock it to put it in my bag. so i locked it up before i even realized my keys were gone. they're pretty much replaced, but there's one that could still do me some good.

It does not escape me that this week is already busy what with A Bridge To Pho on Thursday and CM on Friday. But with this Saturday being Free Comic Book Day I simply had to float this idea:

Comics and Cutlasses Pillage
Saturday May 6, 2006
Leaving from Sherwood at 4:30
Pillaging Wisconsin Ave from Georgetown to Tenleytown
and every comic shop along the way.

You realise that once we hit Wisc,it's just a straight line,up a steep hill,on a busy road?

If I may make a humble suggestion;I'd start it earlier,then run from Tenley to the CCT,run that to Big Planet in Bethesda,and then get everyone back to Adams Morgan in time for cheap beers at Asylum. Either that,or run it off Wisc through some of the hilly sideroads,swinging back to Wisc to stop at a couple bars.
