    Lost my wedding ring, I assume it fell off while riding.

    Had my first blowout, on a super steep hill. Didn't realize my rear tire was so close to the end of it's life, did a long skid and got a loud explosion, followed by 10 seconds of ass-clenching as I slid down the hill and into someones yard without crashing.

    I can leave the house and ride my bikes again.
    Since that drain carries only water, I wonder what clogged it up? Weird.

    The plumber pulled out a lot of linty fibrous material that may have worked itself down the open drain over time. It may have come from a nearby opening in the wall, possibly insulation, but really hard to tell. It's also possible that there was something in the coil drain pan initially, when my new HVAC unit was installed earlier this year. Anyways, I sure hope it's a long before it clogs again, since getting to it is a real pita and I could not fix it myself. The plumber actually had to construct an extension rig out of pvc pipe in order to insert the snake. It took him over an hour to get it done, whereas it would normally take less than half that time if the drain were more readily accessible. It was really nice that he stuck with his initial price estimate of $125.

    Even though you spent $125.00 that you didn't want to, and it was unexpected, I bet it was almost "pleasant" compared to the alternative.

    Man, that sucks. I'm constantly paranoid that my ring is going to fall off while riding

    I stopped taking a ssri. I already feel more clear headed and have more energy to exercise. Hopefully will see more benefits later in the week, medications suck.

    Day two of being flat on my back. Went to Physio yesterday and while that seemed to help I literally checked for bruises when I was in the shower. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day

    I did our mt tabor fixed gear race today and got 4 th which is better than I thought I would do. Hopefully my legs aren't too sore since I found out there are drag races on Friday.

    ^^ lady texted me after the race and said 25 cent beers at a strip club tonight but had to be there quick, ended up having to bike another 20 miles doing alleycat crap. Felt like a jackass blowing lights with race numbers on but it was for a good cause.
