Go figure

I'd eat **** on Friday the 13th.


The trails were wet, my buddy said 'you wont make it through' and i wasn't aware of the date so you know...i had to do it.

Landed low on the first, went off the second, tried to frog hop my bars, leg got caught and i did a no handed nose case run thing down the lander. Then my bike hit me in the back/head. Even with a helmet it hurt. I also managed to rip my most expensive pair of jeans. AND i got dirt all up in my lever/brakeline/grips. Ask mude how much mad i get when that happens. My head now hurts and i'm kinda dizzy.


I'm a complainer. Giva brother some sympathy.


I wish i had the video clip of this.

Do you have a paint mark on your helmet?

In 1990 or so, I hit a chunk of concrete, I flipped _ _ _ over head, and the top tube of the Mongoose Decade hit my helmet, leaving a mint green stripe on my dark gray helmet.
I had to walk that one off, I felt like passing out.

I almost got pretty messed up today. I was downstairs in my basment and decided it was time to see if I could still bunnyhop (in less than two feet of space). I ended up hopping a lot higher than I expected, and completely nosecased, to the point where it would have been a good nosepick if I got out of it. I was so close to going OTB and right into my metal washing machine.

I don't get how you won't even ride your bike on the street, and yet you're planning on playing pro baseball...? Isn't your leg healed by now?

Yea today sucked for me to. I had to work with some mentally handicapped dickhead who just wonders off for like 30 minutes at a time. We had a 86 person party and I had to do basically all of the dishes for it. I'm going to complain to my boss that I'm never working with him again. I get my bike on wednesday next week!! Yay me.

I can't ride my bike yet because I'm not completely healed yet to the point where I can go back to sports, so I secretly fool around on my bike in the basement.

is he REALLY developmentally disabled [what you called mentally handicapped] (in which case the wandering off is excusible), or was he just wandering off (in which case YOU'RE the dickhead for stigmatizing people with a developmental disorder)?

I was thinking the same thing. You can't put someone mentally challenged at blame. It's not their fault.

No he isnt REALLY mentally handicapped. He is just really weird and mean. He has been a dishwasher there for 20 years. Example: About a week ago it was my third day there, I didn't know where a lot of stuff went still. I asked him where something went and he said I told you your on your own now don't ask me questions. Plus every 5 minutes or so he goes over and takes a piece of celery and dips it in BBQ sauce! It's nasty!

I just got back in from a few hour ramp session, I'm stoked for my new frame.

Also, my shin hurts.
