    Best: New IRO Angus, built juuuust how I like it.

    Worst: My conversion was stolen. Quite a conversion, if I do say so myself. And that prompted the best of '06.

    Best: finding a good lady, getting back into riding, getting my '74 Raleigh, learning a lot of new things, getting my MS, starting my Roth IRA, and building up my fixie flip-flop to close out the year.
    Worst: my girl breaking her arm and being unable to ride for a few months, living in a town that still has winter, my car getting hit twice... that's about it. A pretty good year!

    Worst:

    Getting a collapsed lung while sitting at my desk and having to spend 3 nights in the hospital and a month recovering, crashing twice and breaking my hand and getting many stitches, being bikeless as a result. Boredom, angst, loneliness, etc. like every other human.

    Best:

    Dating an awesome new girl who I met when she drove me to the ER after the first wreck (we're still together, I'm very optimistic), getting a good job in loss prevention for a big dept. store, going to geology field school (8 week camping trip out west with the University), getting a check from the insurance co. for a new bike, being alive and happy at the end of the december.

    Best: Meeting a girl I truely loved, having lots of great sex, and not having a job/school and ****ing off for the year.

    Worst: losing a best friend because I fell in love with his girlfriend, finding out the girl I fell in love with didn't have the same feelings, having to move to NC, and getting in trouble with the law (court date in January). Ugh.


    It was a rough/emotional year.

    Oh, I thought this was bike **** only. Then the worst was definitely losing two of my uncles to cancer. And the best would be summer vacation. Best time of my life.

    Best: Making this really delicious chili.

    Worst: Realizing I made the chili when I was drunk, so it could never be duplicated.
