So I just finished with the bulk of my ppt slides for my 50 min senior seminar coming up. I'm at 58 slides right now.

Tommorow night I will make all of my appendix slides (5-10 of them) that wont be part of my presentation but might be utilized during the Q+A session after my talk.

I'll have from tommorow night-Oct 25 to make notes and practice me talk. It feels nice to not finish something at the last minute for once...

I found my ring. It was between my bed and my nightstand. Must have fallen off in my sleep. Maybe I need to fatten up?

Should I wait for a caad9? Are caad9's really much better than these things? I can get one of these for cheap right now...
What do you mean "wait for CAAD9" ? .... They've been out a few years.

Hopefully that doesn't mean we'll see you walking out of the woods in Harriman State Park with just a loin cloth on. Every first of the month I buy my staff donuts and for the the first time in a while I brought Munchkins too which are insidious little things because they're harder to keep track of how many you ate.

Same here ..... I don't cut out all the junk, but I'm a lot more picky now-a-days.

Scale read 168 this morning. Lowest I've seen in 6 months probably. This will help for my last race of the road season this weekend.

No, just remember to put it back on when your girlfriend leaves next time.


Orthopedist at 1:30 today. I'm really curious what this is going to end up being. Hopefully just a nerve release. My elbow feels like it's been smashed in with a hammer. Extending my arm hurts. Closing my fist hurts. Curling my arm hurts. Pain isn't localized to just the elbow. I see scalpels and Versid in my future. Wonder if I can talk the doc into not using GA if it goes that route. Intubation and all that monitoring crap is expensive.

You doing the 3's Saturday? I'll be there Sunday for the 50+, which is basically a long crit. Thought about the P/1 but I've been worked over by those teams enough to know how that would play out.

Me and my pal Don once walked into a biker bar in our racing kits after a summer crit. back in the late 90's.

4's on Saturday. I'm still struggling there, but I think my fitness is beginning to turn around, just at the last race of the season... If I get 6th or better I take the C4's state cup competition - but that's unlikely. I think the peak I hit when I won those couple races must have been huge, cause when I came down off it I had absolutely nothing comparable to that month of fitness.

That's how I felt last year as well. The thing was that my numbers were all higher, but my results weren't.

+1 Some of my best power numbers have come at a time when I thought my fitness was crap.
