I have a (bike) dream

Last night I had a dream that I borrowed $20 from my aunt to get an awesome Spartan frame. It was gold and only partially painted (they forgot to paint the underside).

It had spot welds throughout.

I went to twist the seattube and it broke off from the BB cluster!!

I immediately went online to tell you all to stay away from the frames. And then I cried, realizing I had to pay my aunt back for a worthless frame.

...yes, I really did dream this.

comforting to know that king kog is now selling them at $350 a piece
especially since you can still get them on ebay for $193 shipped

ps. I was bitten by a dog in my dream

i dreamt two dreams. the good one was where i was floating in water, watching the history of sailing play out before me in animated form to some really great classical music.

the bad one, i was flying through this city, like new york with bigger buildings, dirty, drab, dreary buildings that housed thousands of people. something about it reminds me of the movie "metropolis", it had the same feel as the shot of the thousands of workers marching like machinery to their jobs. then i heard the line from slayer's "angel of death": "forced in/like cattle you are/stripped of/your life's worth".
i think it said a lot about the world we live in and where we're going.

I love having bike dreams.
my most recent one involved me being at a custom frame shop and checking out frames and colors and all that and they weren't even expensive and it was night and we went outside and there were stray cats around.
one night I had a bike dream followed by a skiing dream. that was awesome. dreaming about the two most awesome things ever in one night.

Is Sparton still selling on eBay? Their frames have disappeared, I figured it was after they realized that they could make more money selling to over-priced shops like King Kog.

I work in a hardware store and last night I had a dream that we got a bunch of boat supplies in for some reason. I couldn't really figure it out, but I saw a random 4ft section of pegboard open, so I started stocking it. Just as I'm about to finish, my manager comes up and starts yelling at me, asking why I ordered a bunch of boat stuff in. I swear up and down that I didn't, but my e-sign was on the order. He ends up throwing me out of work after telling me that I had no right to order in all of this boat ****. I feel really bad, so I go to a toy store to raise my spirits and end up buying some hot wheels.

I had a dream once that I found a 3Rensho pursuit frame locked up next to the Schuylkill River. It was when I was in the market for a new frame and was thoroughly bummed when it wasn't there the next morning.

I dreamt that I was playing Rock Band with friends, but all of the instruments were real instruments, just plugged into the Xbox. I was playing the drums. Perfectly. Then, back in the real world, my beautiful dream was rudely interrupted by a friend calling to ask me the best way to get somewhere. I looked at the clock and decided that I should probably get up, since it was 5:30 p.m. and already dark outside.
