Addiction XXXVIII

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

Hello Kitty is no shut. She did not put out, even after I got her drunk on hot chocolate.

Maybe she prefers her rides to have longer stems.

I have watched a few of his videos. He seems to be a very entertaining character. But from what I could tell, his understanding of medical and "health" issues is pretty weak.

So Mickey and Minnie mouse are in divorce court and the judge is very skeptical of Mickey's alleged grounds. So Mickey tries to clarify by saying "I don't think you understand what I mean when I say she is ****ing goofy."

...'zactly so. There's a disturbing subtext in most of Disney.

BBC - Culture - Hello Kitty at 40: How she conquered the world

“Hello Kitty represents the deep desire among all people, regardless of nationality or race, to feel joy and happiness, without having to qualify it at any deep intellectual level,” Sanrio’s public relations manager Kazuo Tohmatsu tells BBC Culture. “Hello Kitty doesn't judge. She let's you feel how you feel without forcing you to question why.”

If memory serves me rightly (and I haven't googled this), Jackie Oliver was a F1 driver who then became an extremely competent sports car driver, and may have won Le Mans 24 Hour more than several times, maybe even in that car.

And that is a Bugatti Veyron in the right background... but a down-market version, I'd say.

I hope you scrub up OK. It doesn't matter about the bike, so long as you are A-OK.

Drain some crock pot water if necessary. Add everything together. Cook until beans are ready.
Damn the toddler, that sounds like my kind of friendly recipe.

I hear that Heathpack is preparing a brief for her lawyers to sue you for trademark infringement... to wit, the use of Magic with a capital letter in referring to a bicycle that is not her Magic Bike.
