Wow, I mean I am a giving guy and all, but you ghouls can get your own body parts. I really only want the thumbs, ears and toes for my jewelery collection, but still, finders keepers, losers weepers I always say. I may consider trades though, so offer up.

what'll you give for a non function islet of langhorn from my pancreas? I obviously don't need it anymore.

If we are making a wish list I'd like a new spine or more specifically, some new nerves to fit into my spine which appears to be in excellent condition.

Therapist says I have the body, mobility, and flexibility of a much younger person but the complete lack of reflex in my left leg and partial reflex in my right isn't good... it just confirms what everyone else has been saying (except those wcb bastards) in that there is some serious (and permanent) nerve damage in my back.

While we are at it... more hair would be good.

Road trip tomorrow. More time in Trexlertown, which means more sprinting. I made a goal to dominate this year, I'm going to put in the training to achieve this.

First stop is to where I work to get a saddle, I broke my most favorite saddle ever selle italia flite classic in my next to last sprint interval today. Kind of feels like I lost a part of me.

Near my old stomping grounds. If I were going to trexlertown, I'd stop in at Yocco's and get two "mit alles druf".

In other news, this image was found taped to my chair this morning:

Have spent most of the day in bed trying to stay off my feet... thinking that I have been overdoing things the past few days and the body is telling me, in no uncertain terms, that I need to stop for awhile.

Just waiting for the drugs to kick in here.

Didn't literally lose a part of me, I had that saddle for a long time. When getting off the saddle for a sprint and heard a crack and when I looked back the saddle was flopping.
