I just bottled my third batch yesterday. My IPA is fantastic. The Belgian Triple is great, but needs a few months in the bottle. The American ale I bottled yesterday should be good too (a clone of Rogue Dead Guy Ale)

it was 20 today. one girl who commutes year-round rode there. everyone else talked about how their computrainer classes were going and the indoor tt that the club's team placed 3rd in yesterday.

I feel so bad for y'all who live in those cold places. It was unusually warm here today, 87 degrees at the end of today's 55 mi ride, 11:30 am.

no, but i was sort of shamed into thinking about it by one woman who made it a point to mention she's run outside nearly every day this winter. she was probably one of the women who took offense when i said something about running being stupid on the group's facebook page.

i kind of miss it to be honest. i'm sure that will change pretty quickly once i get back out to do it.

Here's a reminder for you from an outside source:

...no joke. The three years I spent living in and around Minneapolis sent me running to California like one of those kids in a "Scared Straight" video.

This batch is a honey nut brown ale.

You know, I'm a New Yorker and have also lived in New England (Boston & Maine) and the south (NC, Alabama & Georgia). I find LA crazy on so many levels- expensive, completely untenable traffic wise, loopy people. BUT the weather trumps it all. I can ride my bike almost every day of the year. We can sail year-round. 95% of the time, it's sunny & bright, which I find very energizing. I have simply had my fill of cold, snow/ice, and grey weather. And heat with humidity breeding daytime mosquitos.

More power to y'all who like seasons and snow. I can't stand em.

i like winter. this winter has been particularly brutal, and i'm not necessarily a huge fan of going outside and feeling like the air is punching me in the face, but i'm also extremely uncomfortable in hot weather (i'm less and less happy for every degree over 85). i really enjoy having 4 distinct seasons.

mosquitos the size of small birds are the worst though, the worst.

I fully understand the humidity, and big ol bugs and mosquito's of humid areas. We did a lot of racing back east, and down south, and it was miserable. I do sympathize, but I get to deal with Californian transplants, and I just don't know if I could deal with those nutjobs day in and day out.

I'll take our seasons.

This is easily solved by moving to an area with larger birds.

Why all the shooting references in the general 41 of late? When do they get kitten application?

"Pull the trigger" is almost as annoying as "brifter".

Running just got less stupid.

That's part of London I went to pretty often. I never saw no streakers.

When I was in London I also saw no streakers.

If you recall, I am semi-afraid of birds.

California: Home to the largest flying bird in North America.

Yes, absolutely true. The California Condor does indeed have a 40 ft wingspan. They also eat babies and cats. Be afraid, very afraid.

LAJ 03-17-14 10:08 AM

I didn't think they liked cats that much. Learn something new every day.
