I outed AVman

Not the first time and wont be the last I am sure... big baby!!! hahaha I guess I was just tired. Don't worry AV, DK can never replace your sexy ass!!!

Another week - work still going - I am not worried at all about lay-off's at this point. They have given me a lot to do in the upcoming months. I will take that as a good sign.

Maddie got to play at Disneyland on Wed. for school orchestra - then play the rest of the day. Very cool and it was only the advanced kids. Nice reward for them for their hard work

RACE TOMORROW!!!! Enough said!

Got a Linked In invite from our VP of Applications - of course I accepted - we also found out he used to road bike alot. DK, VP and I had a nice little chat about riding and as he left and got out of earshot I said - annnnndd I'm not getting laid off. Everyone, and I mean everyone AVman. laughed.

Here are two vids for you that I saw in Subterranean last night:

Von Bondies (of Rescue Me theme song fame)

The Gay Blades (to stay on the outing theme)

Have a good weekend

Tired of Drywall

what up folks?? sorry I've been away but I have been soooo busy with garage. We finally finished all the drywall then I spent a weekend sanding - the ceiling. Man that really sucks. Then I had to primer the ceiling - man that sucks and then the father in law - who did so much for me decided to dry wall the rest of his garage so I helped with his ceiling this Saturday and what do you know- killed my neck. I have been looking up for a week straight and it finally got me. I could not turn my head left or right to save my life. Today is much better but it is still there. Drywalling sucks!!!

But the garage does look really nice!!!

Merc building guy Rob got a road bike and road with Justin and I on Saturday morning. He did pretty good. We took him on a short 22 mile ride. Now DK was not there so I ended up doing the work on the way back with the headwind. Nothing beats drafting I tell ya.

I hope you are watching the California Tour of Amgen. Lance is back!!! Here is a link to the race site. AMGEN Tour of California

DK, Justin and I are going to Pasadena on Saturday to see the end of that stage. Gonna be way cool!!!

Wrider and Mama - check it out - I am sure there are hot guys for you to ogle... but I must say there is no way they look better than I in bike shorts. Just not possible!!!

Work is still going - no layoffs... yet. No one cares anymore. The rumors have been crazy but now they have died - what you gonna do??? I am done worrying about it.

I am doing some planning so I just need a few things and I will have a 2009 version of my blog. Maybe in the next two weeks I can get it done.

Finally, no song but I heard this old conversation on the radio between Phil Donahue and Milton Friedman. Now I stink at econ but I can listen to it and this, although old, I find so relevant for today. Take a listen

Run of bad luck

My last three bike rides have not been the best to. Flat on Tuesday, Flat coming home from work o Friday and today, on a great ride with DK and AVman, at mile 38, I blow a spoke in the rear wheel. Now due to the massive force generated by my thick muscular thighs, it puts a bend in my rim that did not allow me to keep riding. Thank God for cell phones and my pops who picked us up. Now I might have to re-spoke my whole rim and true it up.. money money money... just cannot have enough these days.

Almost done dry walling the garage. Father in Law has been kicking some but when I am not there and I have learned some good things from him. Sore as hell as I forgot how much it hurts to put dry wall on a ceiling. Man I am sore - no desire to raise my arms above my head that is for sure.

Mama in 4 inch heel boots huh???? Where are the photos of that???? Bring them on!!!!

Have a great superbowl weekend!!
