ok, it’s official – i suck at posting when i’m busy/fulfilled.  it’s true.

i won’t bore you all with minute-by-minute details of the weekend, but it was really good.  the high-point for me a complete and total random sunday with james.  more than anything, i love random sundays…. days where you have no plan’s and just kinda go where the road takes you.

big news i finally got off my ass and bought a bike.  i had a bike a few years ago that i got rid of for no valid reason, but it was time to get a new one – i’d been seriously wanting to get out there, not just for a pleasure ride, but for exercise as well.  here’s my new toy:


in’he cute?  he doesn’t have a name yet.  soon.  here’s what the specialized site says about him:

riding and saving money while saving resources…now, that’s a better energy policy. You don’t need a scientific study to know that riding a bike feels fantastic. you’ve also figured out that riding a bike while your car sits idle in your driveway doesn’t only feel better, it also helps to battle some of the world’s biggest ills, including pollution, traffic congestion, obesity and energy consumption. so, we’ve designed the ‘globe’ to be fast-rolling, yet ergonomically friendly and stable.

seems fitting for me eh?

i also bought this:

galleryfrontback200701301.jpghis name is kermit.  (all ipods need names damnit).  he joins his family ‘catch’ and ‘whaley-boy’, my other 2 ipods.  i’m officially an ipod geek.

i took the bike and kermit out for our inaugural ride tonight… as great as it was, it kicked my ass.  but in a good way.  i was never one of those “casual” riders – i ride pretty aggressively…. my leg’s are gonna feel it tomorrow!

I think you should’ve bought the orange shuffle and called it kermit. Or Green. Or REM. Or Sinn Fein.

Something more ironic.

You’re such a geek 🙂

So, how did you come up with these ipod names (besides the obvious, Kermit)? I have two (video, old school shuffle), not sure what to name them.

Cool bike. I’m in the market for a new one. Have you named it yet?? You should call it Budgie!

[…] walk, and also Kyle’s new wheels, reminded me of how much I need to get a new bike. This place would be perfect for long biking […]
