    I have decided...

    that the best way to unwind after work is to throw on The Roots, take a hot shower, and drink a cold beer. How do you guys unwind after a long day?

    I have also decided that my dyslexia struck again...

    I usually just dump myself on the couch for a good ten minute...then I get up for some snack and turn on some music.

    After a long ride though, cup 2% and a banana/apple is usually what I have.

    shower, cold beer, adult time with my girlfriend, and fall asleep with the TV on

    how any day regardless of stress level should end.

    I can get down with all of that, except for two things: i hate drinking milk (love cheese and ice cream and shakes and stuff, i just hate milk. i love eggnog though. i cant explain it.) and im usually too tired for adult time. 20 mile round trip ride and 12 hours in a kitchen will do that to ya. Dr banzai, what kind of tea? im partial to darjeeling and lady grey personally, but rooibos has been good to me lately.

    An hour and a half ride home on the bike. Maybe more if I have the time.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    With a bike ride duhhhh

    A lot of times one of my friends or my sis will try and drag me out to a bar or something, though I'd rather just go for a long ride and spend the rest of the night munching and reading/watching tv/playing video games

    I intensionally don't ever watch the news so I can live more relaxed. Otherwise I enjoy some form of a drink, tea being a common choice but last night was wine.

    When we were visiting home this summer we were subjected to the TV news cycle with the volume turned up. My mom's addicted. And apparently hard of hearing these days.

    whaaat. To me, WoW is nothing like Blizzard's other games. I much prefer the original warcraft, which is starcraft but with orcs.
    sc2 is great, except for the fact that u get stuck only being able to play with ppl in ur country's region sucks. Waiting for diablo3.

    Mmmmm Diablo 3. I've spent too many goddamn hours on D2...gotten to level 94. I don't need another game to ruin the next ten years of my life.
