Well hello Pirates! Hope everyone's doing well!!

I am quite deeply sorry for my absence from the pillages of late. As spud so nicely pointed out last night, as I hear, I'm spending alot of time in Boston. I'm spending alot of time at work. I'm spending alot of time on law school stuff.

see you soon!!

oh, and happy b day poopncow!!

Last night was cool,although not as polo-y as I would've liked.

pnc - Happy B-day,again! Hate to think what Sparks Black would've done to you.

J5 - Fwar! Someone's got 3 gauges.

Chimbly - How do you get beer-smell out of a bag? (and did it have to be PBR? )

BoogerBike - No excuses: Short Film - Fast and Reliable

Calamari..... mmmmmmmm... better than toss salad (after picking out the black olives)

7-Round at Georgia and Randolph has all the Sparks Black you need. Delicious. Surprisingly smaller than the big ol' orange pint, but a more refined and elegant flavor.

Spud,

Smaller, by maybe 2-4 ounces, but a full percent stronger. If it's 14 oz, then that's .14 of an ounce more alcohol per can. I don't remember what they were charging, they don't do such a great job of posting prices there. I think it was the same price, but don't quote me.

Why diet? Anyone posting here is getting more excercise than the average Pancake Day celebrant!

So much for sympathy pounds!!!! It is in fact true though.. i've put on about 7 lbs in the last two months.

Well, with the warmer weather, it's time to hit the trails again for some longer rides.

Come on pirates!!!!
lets start organizing londer rides..
speaking of which... LBK... any info on a proposed route for Tuesday?

(btw. the offer still stands for anyone who wants to ride serious miles this weekend)

<--- now thats fat

i was thinking about something today. i don't really know my way around dc in a car, let alone by bike. some weekend, if it's relatively nice out, i'd like to go on a general ride around the city. just relaxed and kind of taking our time. show me the good places to ride, etc. if anyone is up for this let me know!

what time is the Sunday ride?

i'll be out riding some bike somewhere on saturday as well. probably in the afternoon so as to maximize Sunburn Potential. Dave might come with me. And we might end up at the High Life Round Up ($.25 high life pints!)

yup
