Bring Chimay Red. If you're going to go to the dark side, go in style.

No beer. Hippie lettuce instead.

I gave up the doobage in high school. Something about working for a state agency, being a home owner, and the legality of it, even if it's only a misdemeanor. I've been known to have a toke when visiting Bottoland, but we're talking the fingers on one hand over 20+ years.

I'm sure there'll be people sparking up in the parking lot though. I'll tell your teammates you said "High".

It's considered bad form to write about about forums in negative light here. I'm not sure how you missed the memo but there it is.

My bad. I can't keep all these numbers straight. I thought he was dumping on the road forum. I blame the iPhone auto correct, and back slowly towards the door.

never apologize for correcting mikey.

Hey Mikey, +1 on the "wow that looked like a fun trip" comments from me. I'm a big fan of the islands and I'm glad you had fun.

anyway, i really should take it easy. my destination is 2,600 meters above sea level.
I have.

Drunk guy in New Delhi airport. We got bumped up to first class because we were there watching and had to deal with his shenanigans. Then they didn't honor that on our transfer so we went back to coach. So it goes.

Rode my bicycle. Managed to pick something up in all my brake pads and gouge my rims pretty well. 40 degrees and windy, with little bits of drizzle coming and going.

Cross = beer
MTB = wacky backy
Road = EPO

You need to get your discipline/drug concordance straight.

When I got a new laptop for college I gave my mom my old one. My sister dropped it a few weeks ago and now I can't get it to even boot. The screen goes grey upon boot and it doesn't go past that. It won't even recognize any keyboard commands (boot into safe mode, boot into a cd). I hope getting it fixed isn't too expensive at the apple store.

ff upgrade is lacking.

no champagne.

no bose noise reduction headsets.

no goodie bags.

c'est la vie.

the pinot noir is tasty.

the steak, shrimp, and risotto wasn't bad.

currently somewhere off the coast of south east south carolina.

a gaul baseball cap goes to the person who guesses my destination before i land. need a name, not a jpeg.
