Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

i believe in drunken holidays. anyone who doesn't have access to excessive amounts of booze can count on me to drink their share, too. you see, my holidays can be summed up by this photo:

We should pledge ourselves, as cyclists, to be alcohol free. We should set the example for America! No Booze in 2006!



Gotcha, Just kidding, I gotto go and get my 24 oz Becks from the fridge now.

I split a bottle of Cognac three ways with mi primos last night...
...family is good, family that drinks together is awesome.


(1/3 VSOP will get you in the holiday spirit rather nicely)

not so much me, at least when i'm around my family (envying serendipper right now). but tonight, my sister and an old bandmate are thinking about getting together...and from there on out it's a mass of drunkenness, i'm sure. there also used to be a bunch of anarcho-punk kids here in boise, the landlocked pirates, who i guess had a pirate shot glass. does anyone in d.c. have one? this may be essential for you guys to acquire....

and flippin sweet: good work. drain all the alcohol reserves you have access to! by the way, how's the portland weather right now? since i'll be there in a couple of days, i want to know which jacket to pack.

The horrible ice storm has fully blown over. The temp's are fairly mild and only a little rain. It's nice. I don't want to go back to the frozen north.

Yay! I hated to think you might have to leave one behind. And chimbly, that collection is making me green with envy. Even though I, too, am way behind. I'd better get crackin'...

MAN! You don't drink, AND you don't eat meat. You gotta have SOME sins dude. When I became a vegetaqrian I started smoking and drinking. Now I've quit smoking, not that into drinking anymore, but I love to eat the animals. the cuter the better. Everybody's got to have some sins. That's what I tell myself anyway
