A decadent life


A few weeks ago I told myself that I would start cutting back on my wine consumption. Michael and I usually enjoy 2-3 glasses each night as we dine, read, chat, surf, roommate kibbutz, build bikes, bella business, kitty fish, do laundry, or just stare blankly ahead. No matter what the activity, a glass of wine is never far from reach.

I decided that I would limit myself to one glass of wine per night.

So what did I go and do?

I bought bigger wine glasses.

Duh.

~~

So while google searching photos of big wine glasses, I landed on one of those tacky gifts websites. I saw this cooler thing. I am going to buy it for Michael and Jeff for christmas. Just in time for their feedzone duty for us bellas in 2007. They can drive it to the feedzone at our races. Jeff can put Michael in the little back cart thingie. It just needs a little flair.



The website has some hokey things on it. Like, who would want to do this to a hot dog?

Looks like Manuel Beltran will be the Disco leader at the Vuelta. Four discos finished in front of Tom today. I wonder what happened?

~~
My major chores list just keeps getting longer and longer. I still haven't sold my car, finished my stairs, planted the apple tree, maintained my Toaster, and on and on and on.

And on.

As we were finishing our ride at Nisene on Wednesday night, someone in the parking lot asked me, "hey, can you guess what I sell?"

I answered with the second thing that popped into my head, "Ice cream?"

"No", he answered with a giggle (guess he likes ice cream too) "I sell windshields" And then he pointed to the tattered splintered windshield on my poor neglected Toaster.

He said he would come to my work and take care of it and he gave me his card. Easy shmeezy. Just a quick phone call and I can have a new windshield without a hint of interruption to my day.

Except I have no idea what I did with his card.

So, do you think Mr. Windshield Salesman broke your windshield himself to generate a little bizness? Awful convenient that he just happens to be there, biz card in hand.

yes, wine is good and so are mojitos, marscat and I pick the restaurants with "good pours" in big glasses, decadent, but we are stopping and just one per month for a while...

If you build a cross course that favors us folks that can't afford a cross bike, or gears, I'll be all over it with my Chameleon.

P.S. From one overworked team leader to another, sometimes staring blankly ahead can be very theraputic.

but you should at least eat the apples on it
