Addiction LXV

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I'm back, for awhile, before being taken away by yet another trip. Reading the morning paper over coffee, from the hammock. With luck, I'll get on the bike today.

Welp, I finally got suckered into the Mielenstein Lightweight Wheel thread. I read 4 pages and became bored. I guess bf, in general, is not the place to go looking for open-minded, stimulating conversation. Fortunately we can fall back on Addiction.

I'd post pics of my tattoos (3) but they would be NSFW.

You've got weiners on the brain now that Finance Girl has propositioned you. Have you considered the possibility that she quit her job in order to pursue you?
Looks like that lucky shirt is doing its job.

They just look like moles to me. They blend in with my other moles. They should have made them ornate or something, like maybe a bullseye. Only your mate gets to see those parts of your anatomy anyway.

It looks like she's rolling the slow game which is new territory for me, but it's still rolling.
