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)

The lady has no assignments until later today so we took advantage of it and made chorizo, egg and potato breakfast burritos w/ fresh homemade tomatillo & cilantro salsa. I'm now ready to face the day.

Flat screens are suppose to be real cheap this year. Cheapest ever on Black Friday (this is how you get a thread back on track).

Mods can't be everywhere and do everything. Admins are omni present and omnipotent, but hey it seems like a nice little thread to me.

We are, but I also possess a sense of humor. If this thread were on track from the get go, I wouldn't have posted about my breakfast. It's become a common theme around here to talk about food when a thread looks like it's going nowhere and I happen to find it quite funny.

I agree that info about Black Friday sales would be cool to have and quite useful, but I also feel it would be just as easy and make more sense to post such info in the "Great Deal/Sale" thread which already exists (and is a sticky).

fair enough. no harm, no foul

to try and stray back on track, i just got the e-mail that competitive cyclist will be holding their "12 days of christmas" sale again this year, and there were some nice deals they offered last year. i recommend signing up for their e-mail list if you're not on it already.

maybe this should be a cyber monday thread anyway.

I've been eating Kix for breakfast lately, with Original Almond Breeze (OAB). It's a solid, economical choice, and not a ****ton of sugar like most breakfast cereals.

Since last Thursday, I've had two full Thanksgiving meals. And I have another one coming up this Thursday.

Win.

You can make really good grilled cheese sandwiches with a sandwich/panini press.

Which will be on sale at Target and Walmart on Black Friday.

BOOM BACK ON TOPIC!
