There's some people singing and playing music in the little park next to my apartment. I kind of want to go check it out, but I also them to shut the heck up so I can go to bed....

I'm just tired, rode my standard 40 mile route. It is supposed to rain for the next few days here I like riding in the rain once and a while but not every day!

Besides that I am just planning for my move next week. I am moving into this pretty sweet little townhouse on the other side of town (read as on the other side of the street). I guess there is a family of about 14 deer that live on the property (on their own free will, and they are not fed by us humans).

Hi foo.

Charting bicycle constructions for the next few weeks, trying to gloss over empty stolen bike feeling.

I realised a few days ago that breathing properly improves your quality of life vastly. I am feeling better already.

(oh and berry picking is hardcore subsistence biking, and that is one fine kona!)

Still nursing the burnt feet.

My left almost feels normal, but the right one is still seriously jacked. My wife split a foot long stalk of aloe vera and I have it strapped onto the top of my swollen and super-sensitive foot. I'd take a picture but I wouldn't want to remind any of the vegan members too much of bacon. It's very strange how the pain almost entirely subsides and I don't notice it, but if I'm sitting for a while (like when working on bikes) and try to stand...searing agony and limping for a while.

Not sure I'll be able to do the Thursday night MTB ride as just walking is painful enough.

On the plus side I just received my Seasons DVD.

I am ...

Sitting in a sea of boxes. Even cleaned off the OMG parts of the desks where desk items have sat for the last 4 years. Was told I would have access to a "flatbed" and manpower to help, now I learn I will be moving and my vehicle will be a small cart they use to transport a cpu and monitor.

Oh ... I am soooooo pleased.

Just go to the local supermarket, "borrow" a shopping cart, and you'll be set.

Scooters rock. They're fun to blast around on, they get great gas mileage, you'll be really happy with it. Congratulations!

I woke up and made my morning trek to the bathroom. Just barely missed regurgitated hairballs on the bathroom floor. Dang cats.
