Not just lady pirates. All pirates are welcome regardless of what's under their skivvies.

I was really, really sad this morning when I woke up to the sound of heavy rain, but it looks like it's stopped now and should be clear and chilly this evening.

Woo!

Howdy everyone! I'm fairly new to riding fixed (about three months). I've been looking for a group of folks to ride with and learn from. If I can get out of something I'm loosley comitted to I might join you guys tonight if thats ok.

When you say 7:30 ish at Sherwood, are you referring to Sherwood Park in North East?

negatory: we're referring to sherwood forest, an ancient grove of dark and mysterious woods not far from the white house, at 14th and K.

Hear ye hear ye: hot-off-the-presses Pirate ride summary

Item #1: I checked. Life on Mars? = Hunky Dory. Touche.
(I owe some wise emo kid $10...hell, no loss, it made me go listen to Hunky Dory again. It's awesome duh. Everyone should go listen to Hunky Dory. Go now or else!)

#2: This evening was fun, if more drinkey and shivery than ridey. Hey. Whatever. That's the way it goes sometimes. You learn things, ie: people are pickers. (You know who you are.)

#3 daibutsusan says to Sparks, "what exactly was that that I just drank?"
(boohahahaha. exactly.) Don't fear the Sparks, new guy!

#4 U St. Cabbie says to LBK: "Yo friends are fight-ting back there!" Tank you refreshingly helpful cabbie guy!

#5 New day rising for me when I turn down Taco Bell.

Gnite, fair hills of Rosslyn!

yes, welcome to the new pirate (who is already sporting the official base layer garment of the pirates) and welcome back to the two returned AWOL pirates.

photos sucked mostly, but the few that worked are on flickr, of course.

Yep. I didn't even remember the $10 part of that whole bet. I would like it in golden dollar coins.

The vomit would have been a nice touch, much better than the pickery talk.... which also makes me vomit. For selectively induced vomiting, lets bring a bottle of peroxide next time. We can have 2 bottles, Sparks in one and Peroxide in the other. Any new guy gets to choose and chug, then they get a spoke card.

Looks like the weather is going to be warm this weekend, anyone up for a ridey afternoon?

Done and done. (I'm assuming you meant the coins with chocolate inside.)

I'm planning in my own mind to ride Haines on Sunday, 10am ish. And then a grilled cheese brunch. This may not work for you all. But this is what I'm doing if anyone wants to come out. I will depart tennis court corner 10:15 sharp at the latest, and do laps for a couple hours.
