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 was raised thinking that Miracle Whip was mayo. I still harbor some resentment over that.

A couple months ago I discovered to my dismay that I cannot do a pull up. Not even one.

So my 2020 resolution is to be able to do one pull up.

Dream big.

Funny thing is the easiest pull-ups have ever been for me was in HS cross-country. Being lighter helps way more than lifting.

Get it in this colourway, you can take it on walks during the day, then wear it to raves at night.

I might make it. Worked 5am to noon, then took a 2 hour nap, just got back from a sunset bike cruise around the neighborhood.

Will probably binge Rust Valley or other junk TV to ring in the new year.

I am not getting notifications when mentioned. In other news, I don't care about the peach drop. Times square or GTFO.
YMMV.

Nooop, not making it to midnight, either. Wife and I put together a little smorgasbord for dinner, but the FIL didn't feel like eating. Instead, he blares the evening news in the next room, screen also in full view of the kids. First was the police killing a mentally ill man, then a sexual assault at the beach, then some guy whining about a firearm with sentimental value that was in his truck when it was stolen. Yeah, I didn't go back for a second plate and retired early. Wtf.

I was hoping to make it up north for the pinecone drop but didn't think about it til Sunday - too late to get a decent room.
