    my boss

    my boss, Pete (the one I share my office with now) asked me: If I bring in my road bike...could you turn it into a single speed?
    WAHOOO!!!!! He's been drooling over mine, and likes the idea a lot. Sure, I have to look at the frame. If its vert drops, ENO, I told him. If its semi horiz, no problem. I told him it will cost him for parts, but it will be a nice project.

    Another soon to be convert sitting across from me...

    My wife and I road downtown the other night to see Ladysmith Black Mambazo and since her MTB and Shwinn cruiser both had flats she rode my SS and I rode my road. Instead of her timid sheepish and anoying riding on the cruiser, she was fast perky and agile, weaving inand out of depating throngs like LA avoiding a crashing peleton. All of the machismo criticism faded away to a wistfull understanding of the pathos of SS. Now we need an old steelie to convert size medium, preferably free.

    Another soon-to-be convert sleeping right next to me.

    Dude, you have to let people get close to you. Don't isolate yourself. I think you should start by getting up and going over and giving your boss a nice hug.

    Ijust can't. Hetero-hugging in WI is not only immoral, its grounds for a good ass kicking after work. No joke.

    Um, even looking at another guy's eyes in WI will get your teeth kicked in. In WI, we're all a bad bunch of closet homophobes, but we're getting better.

    Must ride SS. SS NOW!

    Mentioning "budweiser or coors" is also grounds of a massive beat down. So when the bell whistles at 5, we all crack open a Miller product, because in WI, any other brand is for sissies.

    Well, if you move here, expect cold winters: http://verabee.com/snowbo.mov
    Also, if you come here with a taste of the Coors, you might as well show up to a gunfight with a purse full of tampax. Might as well check your Coors at the state line. Them Illinois peoples will do anything for a buck.

    Once we moved back two years ago, I willed my shaven legs to grow the hair back almost immediately...I fit in, I cracked open a HIgh Life, and all is good. My daughter Annabel even sneers at lamewads with fast cars. Here, we drive rusty 80's Oldsmobiles...the closest thing you got to a horse drawn carriage. We watch tv, but much rather spend night swatting mosquitoes and chewing cheese...cheese grows on trees, its true.
