Removing rotting tires is so satisfying, but…

I got windows open for my online Excel class. I’ve written a long email to my last girlfriend, my dog is at my feet, home safe after I got him back from a crazy lady who stole him, and it just stopped raining. I opened a bottle of Pinot Noir last night and I’m finishing the other half this morning. Yes, I drink before noon. Then I nap. Then I go to school and pretend I am professional. Then, it’s MILLET time. I eat well.

My friend’s orange 62cm Peugeot is on the stand. His wheels are junk and I need to find replacements. The broken shifters are weird French things I can’t find a replacement for. I am listening to NPR about this debate on whether Hasan is a terrorist or a criminal. My bedtime reading is the US Constitution. I think it needs improvement.

Another sip. Good fucking wine. Bottle is almost gone. I could be doing my Excel work right now. I could be in the shop, filing filing filing away at my miters. Had to go to Seattle to buy half-round files. I got the top tube dead on perfect, but that’s one joint. Time for a ride, with my dog, through the wet world out there. God, I miss the sun. I miss the sun. Can you really get vitamin D from fish oil?

  1. nice Victor Acyteleyne reg, there. LO-FLOW. i like that. gonna go turn mine on & finish tacking a frame {well, i have Victor torches & Smith regs, actually} Steve Garro, Coconino Cycles.

  2. “How the fuck do you drink just a 1/2 bottle of wine?”

    How the fuck do you drink wine period ?

    I grew up with Kool-Aid combined with “whatever”.

    To this day I can not drink legit wine. Makes me Yakk.

  3. I just polished off a bottle, Colonel, it was delicious, with not a bit of a buzz to boot. Can’t beat that with a fresh, never frozen, fried chicken leg.

  4. Tinker with the Constitution all you want. It’s just so much shitpaper to Barakzo th clown anyway.

  5. Jonny… remember what you told me… stay outta the comments. The stupid is too strong here…

  6. Yep, don’t get your hackles up for nothing more than tough talk at a keyboard. You guys are lucky I’m sitting in a library right now, otherwise I wouldn’t be wearing pants right now. You have been warned.

  7. Jonny, Bush and Cheney are long gone. Care to live in the present? Or at least check in once and awhile.

  8. …hey, uh, dave…“Care to live in the present? Or at least check in once and awhile.”

    …just living “in the present” leaves a lotta gaps n’ outs, dave, old chap…

    …you yourself might wanna try living in reality in the present…
