    OT: Anybody going to Kenny Chesney tonight?

    I'm about as far away from a country music fan as they come (although it can be debated that the PeaceMakers are country, and I always play Johhny Cash just before a 24 hour race as a ritual). The last time I went to a concert where I stereotyped the fans was in 1987, when I went to see Def Leppard. I hated rock, but my roommate got me tixs. Since I had no idea what to expect--and since I really wanted to fit in--I tried my best to wear what I thought was rocker gear, which to me was surfer shorts, and a TShirt. Needless to say, I stuck out like a sore thumb.

    Tonight, I was planning on wearing my Wranglers, snakeskin boots, cowboy hat, and my rodeo buckle. Will I stick out?

    (P.S. The tickets were free.)

    Please tell me that this is a joke. I can't believe a fellow single speeder would even listen to the person who gave said free tix.

    don't forget the chew

    a can of cope in the rear pocket will help you look more convincing.
    Oh yeah, don't blow your cover by ordering a fat-tire or other pseudo real beer. Stick to the Silver bullet, or them good ol boys might string you up.

    Well, to be honest...................I haven't been on my singlespeed in like 3 months, so I'm not sure I qualify as a "fellow single speeder" (And how dare you try to work in biking related discussion in an obvoiusly off topic post.)

    It's been finished for like 3 weeks, but how the hell would you know. Geez, you're worse than Walt, not stopping and saying hi.

    (Please, please invite me on a ride. I need to get my fat ass out on the bike again.)

    I suppose you should buy a NASCAR hat and go to Circle K and get a 64oz thirstbuster too..

    Finished. Great. Now you can sell it for a huge profit and get your dreamhouse.



    Then kids:



    One happy family:



    Of course, you could, as an option only, get hitched:



    On a serious note, lets ride today (if the above has changed your mind on the concert) and/or Wednesday.

    One more just for fun, a redneck gingerbread house:

    To be honest, it didn't suck. And my god, I don't think I've seen more fake boobs since last time I hiked Squaw Peak.

    It's funny though. There was a guy who kept having to leave to I guess go to the bathroom. He was always apologetic. One time, we came by and he says, "Man, I'm really sorry. But to ake it up, I got something for you," and he shows me his can of Copenhagen. Funny, eh?

    (I told him I don't chew any more--which is true, I used to chew, but the leaf stuff--and he says to me in this thick drawl, "Yea right.")

    Interesting. Facinating. Bok-Choy.
