Just kidding... I'm sure the 404's are a great wheelset. Hope you enjoy your new bike. When will it be ready for its maiden voyage?
The wheels arrive on Friday.

Picking it up on Sunday.

I'm working and feeling jittery from my coffee. I went to the hot springs last night and I didn't get enough sleep. Wide awake but feel a bit tired.

Ummm...that they dress in the manner of a male prostitute. An unsuccessful male prostitute. And they're afraid of girls. The same goes for lycra wearing roadies.

I'm sitting around, trying to not do any work for a bit right now, so I don't look like I am slacking on the last 15-20mins of my shift.

This is what happens when your shift is extended to 10-11hrs when you only have enough work for 8. Hooray for shotgun management.

I just went shopping on teh intarweb and bought bike and car stuff. Ratio of money spent on bike stuff vs. car stuff is 10:1. I'm not finished though as I need to hunt down power folding mirrors for the Focus. I'm actually in another forum searching for info right now.

Enjoy the ride....the bike and life. Figure out what you want and do it. You will be old and dead before you know it. Do what makes you happy.

Just ate pizza and watching "I Love the 70's". I also picked up my new bullhorns and some handlebar tape. Just need some electrical tape and I can slap that baby on and be styling like a mofo.

Listening to Sonata Arctica and Nightwish while relaxing after a 30-mile ride. (I'm just getting back into cycling after a couple years, for fun and fitness. I don't wanna be a chubster anymore!)

O.K. first both of those Euro Bands kick major *ss! I have Eclipticaby Sonata Artica and a greatest hits CD by Nightwish.

Anyway.... I had a really great second date tonight. I might be cooking for her this weekend. And the only other thing I will divulge is she is a good kisser. Good night all.
