okashii and i may make it down as well, though i have a stoopid 8pm meeting tonight to make afterword.

edit: ok, i wimped out. i had to go home and change out of work clothes, and my nose got cold on the way home. that's a sign to me that it's not good riding weather, so i kept my rollers company instead. glad y'all had fun.

Edit: the ride was sweet, but my feet turned to ice thanks Ninja for the company

The ride definitely was good. Man, I was spinning like crazy trying to keep up with your 48/16 ride. A bit chilly though...but afterall, that's what they make whiskey for.

ok, totally random. me planning ahead again. bear with me.
they just released more tickets at the zoo to see butterstick. since many out-of-towners will be here for the midnight frostbite *and* since we all have monday Jan 16 off from work, i secured 18 tickets to see butterstick that monday at 12:50pm. the tickets are under my, tink's, and spud's name.

hope y'all don't mind. add butterstick viewing to the weekend plans.

it's freaking 18 tickets. you can bring your SignificantOther, since panda cub viewing is clearly an intimate activity meant to be shared with loved ones. (if, like me, you don't have an SO, you should be happy. being single is awesome. super awesome.)

I've seen certain Pirates cry to get people to drink large amounts of Sparks.

Pirates-
I received a request that we move our discussion to a myspace group. I'm posting a poll on the listserv about it. Please respond there.

Also - pillage, old skool style. 7pm tonight, meetup is at home base. dress warm, it's gonna be a bit chilly. call me if you're running late. we should be at homebase till about 730.

Request? If someone has something to say to ALL of us I say that they kindly post it to ALL of us.

As far as "They" are concerned, I don't know why its such a big deal. We do all of our rambling in one forum, not 10, 20, or more. I think we are as much part of the online community as "They" are. In all fairness our ranks are growing stronger by the day. More new pirates have been posting than ever and with all this lots of non-bike stuff has been going up.

As long as this Interweb forum is free, I say we should be able to post freely without being harassed. They don't have to read our thread.

I say its time we rase our dam pirate flags.

I'm curious about the details of the request.

There has been a lot of monkey chatter lately, pun intended, but I'm chalking it up to the holidays, mixing of old and new pirates, as well as this season which makes us all a little stir crazy and keeps us from riding more and chattering less. I'll admit and accept flak for the off-topic animatrons born of office party cocktails also.

Did someone say ride? I'll be there late, bringing, once more with feeling, my illegal noise.
