Random grumblings n stuff

Sometimes I like bad coffee. Gas station coffee with that chickoried burnt pot taste. Sometimes I sort of crave that. Have no idea why. Perhaps punishing myself for something. Maybe for that donut? This morning was a bad coffee morning and now its made me all grumbly.

I hate when I hit the back button on hotmail beta. Stupid hotmail. How long can something be called beta anyway? Until its mo beta?

~groan...I need more bad coffee.

Its hard to be funny when its all dreary outside.
And wet.

I've finally gotten around to being motivated to ride these days. It kills me that I spent weeks idly wasting sunny days and now have to force myself to ride in this crap. I'm going to type this blog as an excuse to procrastinate on today's ride.

I'm eating baked cheetos with my coffee right now. Thats so gross.

I can't wait for the cross race this weekend. I have a surprise for someone. But I am not telling what. Mwaaahhaaaahaaa.

I think I finally figured out what I want to be for halloween at cross and at work. The department here at work "never dresses up for Halloween, ever!" Sorry. There's a new sheriff in town and she's got a box of costumes with your name on it. Except I opened up my big mouth and challenged the design department...I think I told them we could be more creative than them. The design department. The people that think things up for a living. Oops.

I still have to find those big yellow sunglasses. But now I need big red sunglasses too.

So, Sarah Hammer, fresh off a world medal win this year, set a new national record in the Pursuit at the Track National Championships yesterday. Hammer for sure. Maybe thats what I need, a new last name. Sabine Goesuphillsfast or something.

Track Nationals aren't being held in Colorado this year. Velonews is in Colorado. I think it was too long of a drive for their reporters because there is nothing about a woman breaking an 11 year old national record on their site yet. Just more stories about drugs, euro-pros and Interbike. Interbike was soooo last week.

Maam, put the cheetos down.

I better go ride now.

are you suprised about the VN coverage....their domestic coverage has sucked for years...and its just getting worse. I wonder why (based in Australia) seems to be able to do a better job of covering US racing?

the sun is starting to come out here and i think it is supposed to be nice for several days so you can go back to procrastinating if you want...

accountants can be pretty darn creatie, don't you think? cooking the books? crunching the numbers? creating reality from fantasy?

rain, rain, rain

I actually like it. But I don't want to clean my bike so no mud practice for me. Well, maybe.

I told myself I'd swim on the days when it rains.

Bad coffee is best avoided unless it's paired with a bad donut.

It's a kind of symmetrical lack of culinary aethetics thing.

stop by my office in the morning for bad coffee.. its not all what its cracked up to be.

I'll stick with the good shit. Pure high grade fresh roasted, cheap labored 20 year old college student pressed espresso with a twist of soy.
