Today I rode off a 1' curb and dropped my chain. Luckily nothing bad happened after that, just jammed foot behind fork, cursed at scratched chainstay, put chain back on, made mental note to pull the wheel back a bit when I get a chance.

Yep, they make my feet hurt. DC can't make a shoe that lasts for more than 4 months, I went through 4 pairs of DC shoes back in 2011 all cracked at just before the arch of the foot. Best shoe store shoe I've used for use with the dmr were the etnies I used in 2012. Got a pair of Shimano AM 41's last year and are now on their 2nd season. Otherwise I wear loafers since I prefer comfort over style for a regular shoe.

nah, $800.

i aint skinny footed by any means. my boot size is 8eeee, i wear 8.5eeee or 9ee in new balances, 9ee in topsiders, and i'm ordering a 9.5 in both of those. i wear a 9 in the authentics cause i'm usually wearing those barefoot...they get kinda deformed. it seems the only standard/medium width shoes i can wear are vulcanized shoes, especially vans. the sidewalls give out to make room for my buff-ass feet, that are usually wider than the shoes they go into. never gonna be able to find proper hockey skates, cycling shoes, soccer shoes. not for cheap anyway. oh well.

i'm gonna fix up my bike for like $100-$200, and probably get some tattoos removed, and sit on the rest of it for a rainy day.

People used to swear that Janoski's stretched out like a half inch once broken in but I won't ever buy Nike because I hate what they've done with skateboarding.

I rock Adidas shoes that I can't remember the name but they look like the Ease but not a skate shoe, I can pick them up for twenty bucks a pair here at their outlet. Best skate shoe ever, remind me of the old Circa AL50 before Circa went downhill.

Today my motherboard's sata controller died and because of bad timing with intel's release schedule so begins the impromptu parting out of my gaming rig.

I woke up on time, but it is 34 degrees out and there is a dusting of snow on the ground. I'm driving. It's the middle of April and I rode home from work in a tshirt on Monday. Ridiculous.

Woke up to 30 degree weather, after being fairly used to 60-80 degree weather.

Played a little HTFU and commuted anyway.

Today I saw an old friend for lunch. I am sporting a new goatee so I expected a few comments. Instead I arrive and he's rocking a MASSIVE moustache long enough to be waxed/braided. I was totally outgunned.
