Yvonne Strahovski ............ Gesundheit!

I could write a whole bunch of words but I think the picture above sums it up nicely.


But, and there is always a but, if it is words you are looking for some of mine can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Behind-Bars-ebook/dp/B007EG95IQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1334714517&sr=8-1
Buy it.  For $0.99 you will not regret it.

OK - one gratuitous Yvonne Strahovski photo:

And I have been riding lots - after a 5 day break - the legs are fast and rested; 5 DAYS OFF = 1 GEAR HIGHER.

Out!  For real!

Perspective Appears Important

If someone were to call me a dickhead ...... I would have to concur ..... Given the evidence.

Bunion My Ass

Sometimes things are not as they appear.  This would prove true with the injuries sustained by my lowly feet.  I saw the Good Dr. today, the smart Dr., and he looked at my shit and basically told me everyone who had looked at my feet, diagnosed my feet, and/or massaged my tired old feet was full of fucking shit.  The bunion that is not - he touched one spot and said, "That hurt?".  "Nope".  Then that shit ain't a bunion.  He did say 2 MRIs are needed because I have some serious soft tissue damage in the form of ligament, tendon or cartilage . . . . or, perhaps, all of the above.  So they are haggling with my awesome insurance about that as we speak.  Seven long months and finally we are getting somewhere.  I mean I asked all the "others" if an MRI was needed and all I got was a resounding no.  Practicing medicine.  Just don't practice on me anymore.  So, I am still nowhere and the surgery I am looking at is now different .... if needed at all.   
As for my ride ..... well, that was spectacular.  Given the new light shed on my injuries and that I do not have an old man, Captain Agro-style, bunion I rode with some youthful vigor.  I did not ride far but rather threw down a bit of an effort, a solid high energy tempo ride, and it was fantastic.  I am looking forward to getting out in the rain again tomorrow and Friday, short and at effort, and then indulging in some long slow ones for the weekend.  See you out there.  And remember, if you are going to suck a wheel and not say anything, you do ...... suck.


Two Days of Redwoods in the Rain

It's raining.  I got out yesterday and managed to ride headlong through two cells of rain; real rain.  It was a great ride.  I was all embroc'ed up and that alone made me feel like a bike rider.  It was relatively short at just under two hours but today, today, after my visit to the good foot Dr. this morning, shall see me out in the elements be they rain, sleet, snow, shat, whathaveyou.  Also if you are not watching Pijl here http://sports-livez.com/channel/ch-3.php you are silly.  There shall be another update later: one on my feet and one on my ride.

Big Ole Pile O' Poo

My old laptop broke.  Had to buy a new one.  Quit drinking.  Been riding.  Will be back full force tomorrow so get your arse ready.  Honestly, living clean and riding and eating clean and riding a lot has me feeling the exact opposite of the image above, though there has been enough to warrant the steaming shot.
