    Still at my desk... planning, planning, planning... whoever invented emails has a lot to answer for. My inbox just keeps clicking over and over, and everything needs attention... I have been getting out most mornings for an early ride tho, and tomorrow it's gonna be up into the chunk for a couple hours, then Sunday a longer one Friday is good cos it's Saturday tomorrow!
    In a couple of weeks the next big tour starts tho, so I will be hard at it for almost 3 months, with not a lot of riding going on... At least when I get home in December, the weather will be perfect for chunky S Az riding
    It's all Here. Now.

    Too hot to ride and wicked-ass thunderstorms up in the local mountains to boot. Beer sounds like the cure. Leaving soon to check out the latest (71st active) brewery in the county and grab a growler of their "71" DIPA.

    Slow day for work. Need to ride somewhere.
    A tad wet it is.
    I'm afraid of heights so a 26'r fits me to a T.

    Meeting up with RandyBoy for a morning ride to beat the heat. Then off to work for a quick few stops. Then wife comes home early from work, picks up the kid. Then we load into my ride and blast out to the desert for the weekend to hang out with family and to attend a concert. Oh, yes, my bike is coming, too!

    this has nothing to do with Friday, other than the fact that it's friday. So there is an awkward silent pooper who invades the ladies room pretty often. she just sits there....silent and wont leave. I cant pee next to somebody like that. I get total stage fright. So annoying. Me and the other admin ladies all talk about it....beware the silent pooper!

    It could be worse. It could be the creepy receptionist that likes to look in through the cracks and chit chat with you while you're trying to pee. That get's old fast.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    She just being a lady. You gals are all "scaring" each other into holding it and being silent until the other person leaves. Somebody needs to let loose and let 'er fly to get the party started in there. Who knows, perhaps you'll become great pooping buddies once one of you breaks the ice. Next time you encounter her, I say purposefully force one out, then giggle then wait just a second to see how she reacts, then say "sorry" or "excuse me". If she toots right back and giggles also, then the orchestra is on! Tooty-toot-toot.

    In my building there's a particular bathroom that seems to have the same 2 or 3 people sitting in one of the stalls taking their own sweet time dropping their loads. No sound or other evidence of progress, they just seem to sit there. When I come in to sit down I always leave before they do. Doesn't affect my ability to poop in the stall next to them or wiz in the adjacent urinal but it's just a little odd.

    Sounds like people are checking their facebook on the loo.

    My coworkers are all laborers, so we don't have the luxury of a work desk and computer to tweet from. If you wanna steal time, the only safe place to do it is the toilet!

    Weekend weather looks good here in Edmonton. Leaves are about 30% down = perfect. Trails are dry, but rutted from our heavy summer rains. Temperature is perfect - about 16 Celsius in the tree canopies.

    Saturday = ride, Sunday = working on the 4x4!

    I'm working today but that's just fine an dandy. We almost lost our beloved bunny a week ago on Saturday. Been nursing him back to health ever since so things are just peachy. Going to a family bday party for five members including my wife tonight. Gonna spend the day with my girls tomorrow and hopefully finish shampooing our carpets and rugs. Gonna go for a 20 mile ride on Sunday with a fellow EB member.

    When I worked in the office doing accounting, we had an older lazy f*ck, basically couldn't get fired, he was family with the president of the company, that would take the newspaper, cigs and a lighter to the growler, and burn 2 or 3 cigs in the stall while reading the 1st section of the L.A. Times, pretty much cover to cover. 20-25 minute dumps while getting a nicotine fix was his regular M.O. Talk about stealing time... smokers and smoke breaks.

    Wow, this Friday flew by! It's 8:45pm and I'm just getting my shoes off for the day. Celebrated my wife's bday with family. Enjoying a late evening slice of fresh lemon cake.

    Piggybacked off of the 3 day weekend and took Tuesday off to make it a 4 day weekend which I do for all 3 day weekends throughout the year. Big benefit of having 4 weeks paid vacation per year. Wedding tomorrow (boo) but after that I will get in some quality time with the bike, BBQ, and some beers the rest of the weekend.

    I had a couple years worth of unused vacation and I have been taking Friday's off since May! The extra day off has paid off

    Happy Friday OC-TM! and others. Weather here in MSA Quebec was glorious! and so was today's riding

    DS, I always envy your no work Fridays. I really can't complain having only worked 3 days this week though. Taking the wife out tonight so I can ride tomorrow and Sunday.

    Went in the office at 5am and am already home getting ready for camping! Gonna leave in a bit, setup camp and then go for a ride. Hoping to hit San Juan Trail in the morning depending on tonight's beer intake volume.

    No work until next Wed, Happy Friday!

    I've worked for the last 5 days straight and I will be working right on through the weekend with next Weds being my last day for a short while. Needless to say, I will be doing some riding with my free time. Heading up to the high desert on Thursday to hang out with a few of my house boating buddies. Then back to the grind on the following Monday.

    Went for a ride in the morning... Then waited for my partner to get back from working... then waited more... and more...

    Then went for a ride in the afternoon! Cleaned the bike chain, and had some food, now being a lazy ass on the couch.

    Friday over.

    Have to get pumped up for a local team tournament tomorrow!

    Friday wakeup call?

    Credit Card company. With a list of fraudulent charges racked up overnight. Awesome.

    Card is in my physical possession, so it was skimmed somewhere. But where...? I use that one rarely these days, but it seems to point to last place I used it, also only place it was used in the last two weeks. Brick and mortar retail chain. The terminal I used looked normal, but the overworked employee made a funny face at something her computer flashed when I swiped, but then shook it off. I think the systems were compromised. I am going down there today to return stuff anyways, so I will talk to the store manager. Unless the store manager was the one who installed the skimmer...

    Sorry to hear. I just went through that, some ahole got my cc info and made a fake card to use at gas pumps. Made 2 $100 purchases up in the ghettos of LA before they caught it. I was impressed how quickly they caught it though, all because they noticed a purchase within 5 minutes of another 50 miles apart. I don't use my debit card for this reason, cc fraud coverage is easier to deal with since no cash is tied up. Scumbags I tell ya!

    I was thinking about it further... wasn't there a big thing in the beginning of the year where a bunch of online bike shops got hit? Is it possible my credit card info was pulled from an old database where this happened? Or that another group just got hit but no one has realized it yet? It has been a while since I ordered anything with the card... can't even remember when or where, I would have to dig months back.

    Oh, and the fraudulent purchase that tipped them off and was the first declined? A furniture store. In France. That happened after they tested the card with two small online 'donations' and then buying something in the midwest even though I live on the west coast. :| Thank gawd criminals are stupid!

    It can happen anywhere.. Waiter at a restaurant can swipe it, gas pumps (most common), POS machine.. And now they don't even have to go back to the scene to get the info, they can get it remotely from the device they install. In the past they would often put a reader over the real card reader, now they can get into the gas dispensers and put in a device that intercepts the data. I used to work construction building/remodeling gas stations for my dad and the dispenser keys are universal by the type.

    I check my cc statement daily. I like to use it for the points, I don't carry a balance. Only way to prevent cc fraud is to pay cash.

    Haha, reminds me of something funny that happened at work a couple years ago...

    I work at a high end resort that sees celebs and the ultra-rich. A ditzy waitress was handed one of those super exclusive Visa Black cards for payment. She was so thrilled to see one and hold one, she just HAD to get a picture of it... and post it on her facebook...

    /facepalm



    I ALWAYS check outdoor terminals, and have paid inside when suspicious at gas pumps. But, to be honest, I didn't look at this one closely. Nothing looked unusual about it... and putting something in a terminal at the register does seem pretty brazen.

    I get nervous carrying cash around, because I have so little to spare. One purse snatch would be a huge loss for me, and would hurt badly. I feel more secure, in a sense, using credit cards because I am not on the line if the number is stolen like it just was. I have been pretty brazen in the past using it online, but haven't been for a while. I really try to only use sites that have a paypal or Amazon payment option, or are just a large enough site that I know they encrypt the shit outta their stuff. The incidents are getting so common, I imagine the company won't even investigate since it was only a few hundred they are out, which is partially why I want to try to figure it out. I don't expect to hear from the credit card again concerning this.

The terminal I used looked normal, but the overworked employee made a funny face at something her computer flashed when I swiped, but then shook it off. I think the systems were compromised. I am going down there today to return stuff anyways, so I will talk to the store manager. Unless the store manager was the one who installed the skimmer...
    I had it happen at a gas pump. They card company called me saying it was compromised. They only found out because I was purchasing something at the same time as the person 75 kms away. It was a pain in the arse.

    Today was another ass buster at work but every day is like that when you're running the show.

    Anyway, Friday turned out just fine in the end. I settled down with my girls this evening to watch Toy Story 3, a family favorite among us. Until we meet here again next Friday, I bid you all a good night.

    To expand on your meaning, yes pay cash and DO NOT OWN A CREDIT CARD. You can get scanned by the guy standing next to you anywhere, any time if you have one in your possession and or your number/personal info/identity can be stolen out of what would seem like thin air these days.

    Ohhh, it's a lovely world we live in....

    I've had it happen at my gas station twice using their gas card/not a credit card. They notified my each time and sent out a new card, no questions asked. Turns out some of the gas stations around here are controlled by some big time criminal operations. I won't mention anything/anyone specific.

    Guys, never, ever, ever use a credit card/check card/debit card at a gas pump. Never ever! Get the company's gas card and use that. ONLY THAT!!!!

    Or pay cash

I put that in parenthesis because that system is botched, but I play into it because I have had to. Most credit card ID theft stops with the transactions; the real ID theft can happen anywhere you SSN is laying around, including your doctors office.

    Work on the day after thanksgiving is bogus. Happy Friday to those who have it off.

    Black Friday is ridiculous. You couldn't give me things for free to stand in those lines.

    Same here!
    Gordon I'm hard at work also. On call sitting in Starbucks playing on the web. Going on 4 hours with no work and I'm off in an hour and got paid for it.

    Watching all the Black Friday shoppers coming in and out all stressed out.

    Try an undersized condom with extra lube. Generally get's you into tight spots a little better.
