    Friday!
    Had a quiet breakfast by myself, going to let the food settle, them going for a road ride. Tonight and tomorrow equal little league games.

    Guy i ride with works on Saturday. Weekend rides are usually a mellow solo ride or a mellow after he gets off work ride sat with an epic ride on Sunday.

    He took this Saturday off, so we are looking at logging some miles this weekend. Im excited!!! Gona start the weekend off with a dawn patrol Sunrise highway kiosk ride tomorrow morning. We have perfected our route up there. 20 miles almost on the nose and we hit the Gatos spur twice. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! That place is freaking amazing to ride.

    Saturday after noon im taking my youngest to the broadway production of greenday's american idiot. Broadway shows are NOT my normal cup of tea, but the tickets were given to me and my kiddo is stoked to go (she loves greenday). Oughta be interesting at the very least.

    Now..... i just have to make it through one more work day.

    The gf and I beat the weekend crowd by going to the mountains mid-week. Will be heading back home later today.

    10 Interweb points to anyone who can guess where in Carolina this was taken.

    F.R.I.D.A.Y.YEA. The smell of power chords in the morning, better than coffee. Couldn't resist.

    Live it up, peeps!

    Yea, it is Friday, huh? All I have to look forward to is:

    1) Yard work - making a rock garden thing in my yard
    2) Updating my blog (finally)
    3) Watching the newest episode of Chihayafuru (WOOT!)
    4) Crappy Ohio weather

    Not going to go riding this weekend, taking a by-weekend off from distance training :\ On a good note, I start my vacation + first bike tour next week! YAY! - of course, as the pessimist that I am, I planned it for 64 miles over the course of 5 days.. I should have planned a 250 or so :(

    Oh well.. must.. stick.. to.. the.. plan

    Yeah it's Friday again.
    Rain dominates the weekend weather forecast, but we still hope to squeak in some riding.

    Congrats 2ridealot.

    It's Friday and my bike is in the shop getting a new frame installed... So I guess I will just have to leave work early for no real reason at all.

    Unusual day off on a friday. Overtime all week. Wish my paycheck from all this would be nice, but the week before and after I only worked 3 days. Seasonal towns suck :( Good news is that I have 120 hours of vacation time saved up! I'll use a bit over half of it while on vacation, so I can come home to a nice paycheck instead of an empty bank account!

    Today is errands. I have a list of people to call who hold normal business hours, unlike myself. One of which is the LBS to order a ride kit. They gave me shit about ordering it, said I need to drive down there to do that (which I already did, and the guy wouldn't take my card until he called them and confirmed the company had the item). Another hour of driving to order a part they are gouging the price on, then an hour driving to pick it up? I ride my bike now, so that one errand is more driving than I have done in the past two weeks. Ya, no thanks, I'll try another shop.

    Also have a side graphic design project I hope to wrap up quickly. My payment for it was trade for tickets to see Penn and Teller. (an offer negotiated by the person who went with me. Gee, thanks.) I normally would charge at least $300 for this project (an absolute STEAL because I just do this on the side), and the tickets couldn't have been more than half of that total. And they weren't sold out. And the client got the tickets for free. I think I am coming out on the short end of this deal... Knowing this client as well, I will be spending three times as long on revisions and meetings about revisions than I did on the original project. Ugh. Just need to get it done.

    I guess this really isn't much of a day off, is it? :/

    My Fridays the past couple of weeks have been free as I got an Engineering internship with a state department of highways.. and as most people will tell you.. state employees dont really work all that often (just joking of course). Today was raining all day but I did get out for a road ride in between showers. Hooray for the weekend!

    Friday!
    The weather was absolute crap thanks to the remnants of TS Andrea. Yesterday was too, but I was still able to squeeze in 25 before the rain hit. Today just involved lunch and free doughnuts with the kids, some house cleaning, and some beer. :D

    Status of all projects?

    One phone call revealed the reason for lack of callback was because appointment was made in the system for the WRONG person. Need to chase that one down next week.

    LBS will call back monday, as by the time the guy who could order it came in, east coast offices were closed...

    Been working on project for 4 hours with zero progress. Had a problem with computer a month ago, reinstalled windows on new harddrive, and now can't open it on old drive. All help files say to reinstall. I kinda sorta don't have the disk cause it was kinda sorta borrowed cause I didn't have 5k to drop on it. I have an old version, photoshop 7, which is mine. I prefer to use that version because it is the one I know best. I only have CS5 to teach myself the latest version when I was looking for work in the industry, otherwise I have never tried to use it again until now. Can't use 7 because the brushes I need for the project are for later versions. Joy. This is REALLY going to take a long time.
