I was admonished by my friend Jon for not keeping my blogging more up to date, if I was going to be so rude as to not fly across the country more often and visit.
A random smattering from the panoply of events that makes up my day
• I have decided to withdraw my class-action lawsuit against Apple, as I have found my iPod nano. This proves that it is in fact NOT so small so as to lose permanently. I expect I shall have to pay court costs.
• Bike riding has occupied almost all of my free time this year, and as a result I'm up to about 2700 miles for the year, as compared to last year's 2003 miles by the end of December. The <a href="rocklandbike.org">Rockland Bicycling Club</a> is doing well this year and we've got lots and lots of new members.
• For the bike-geeks who read this, I've ridden the new SRAM Force group recently, and can't wait to get it on my bike.
• I'll be the photographer for my brother-in-law's wedding next weekend. I'm looking forward to it, and hope Fedex doesn't lose the 3 million pounds of camera gear I shipped out to the hotel. Aside from this, I haven't been taking many pictures of things that aren't insects. Slightly less motivation than usual, I suppose.
• At the end of the month I'll be riding RAGBRI, a bicycle ride across Iowa that's going to run 444 miles and, it turns out, will include the participation of Lance Armstrong. Neato.
• As Continental Airlines fucked me on Elite Qualification Miles this year, I've decided to drop about 20,000 revenue miles from my travel plans. Staying home has been very nice, though it's gotten me bitched at by aforementioned friend.
• I made a yummy pasta yesterday with the remnants of cheese brought to us by Abby's cousin and his girlfriend. This is less a note about cooking pasta though then a "hello" to them, as I know they're some of the few people on earth who read this blog.
Oh, and in Sept. I'll be in Cologne, Germany for a week. I'm thinking of bringing my bike to ride in the free time around the trade show. Anyone know any good bike routes there?
