wind in my sails

this was my first bike ride (meaning longer than down the black and back) in over a month and a half due to broken bones. so what if i was cruising at a cool 5mph, it still counts. i put a freewheel and brake on my bike, switched up the handlebars, and took off my clips (to get the walking cast on the pedal). sweet fucking action! watch out those keeping it weird in portland! i am back on my bike and i will slay you.

for my boys at 21st ave bikes

get the tambourine.

it's official, i am tough

i have heard that the ladies love the scars. is this true? will women see this and find me desirable? will my girlfriend want to make out with me more? i can tell you one thing, having crutches in the strip club will not get you sympathy strippin. right, other kyle? he was there. he knows. however, lindsay (my gf) was a tit magnet. i got to live vicariously through her as i was sitting to her left for most of the evening. i did, however, get sympathy dollar bills from my boys which allowed me to remain seated at the main stage and let me tell you, there was a lot of puss. union jacks is full nudity. at first i thought i might be a little awkward around so much vagina. it has been awhile since i have seen any other one besides lindo's (i wonder if she minds me taking about her pundu). after awhile i noticed my face hurt from smiling and my thumb was sore from all the thumbs up i gave to kyle von.  easy breezy japaneesy.

here's my vigorelli.

spicy curry

does that bike look familiar? if you guessed the javelin vigorelli, you are correct. my friend, geoff at javelin, was kind enough to send some goods to give out as prizes for the next sprints.

way gay

i knew it. 

bike you very much


i saw was killing time (that's about all i do these days) and i saw this video on breakbrake17. i have been watching so many bike videos. since i can't ride for at least another 3 weeks, i am not sure if watching these is helping or hurting. every time i see someone ride by smiling, i feel a little jealous, and a little pissed that i am laid up for the summer...again. my time will come and i will never take my bike for granted. never.

my bike has become an incense holder

feck. i have burned through seasons 1-7 of the golden girls. i have also burned through several bags of weed. strictly medicinal, of course. i have picked up another christopher moore book. i think it is safe to say he is my favorite author. i stumbled on 'island of the sequined love nun' when i lived in san diego. i then waited a good 5 years before i read anything else of his. what the feck was i doing? when i did decide to revisit my friend, mr. moore, it was with 'a dirty job'. it was my day off, i started reading it during breakfast, and i finished the book by dinner. he had me at hello. that opened the flood gate of christopher mooreness. 'blood sucking fiends', 'you suck: a love story', and 'coyote blue' followed. the one i am reading now is 'lamb: the gospel according to biff, christ's childhood pal'. that's just a little play-by-play action for you.
having a broken ankle/leg really gives you the kind of time to yourself that you normally don't allow yourself to have. like,' i am going to color this spider-man picture' kind of time. i try to be as productive as possible. some days are better than others. for example, yesterday i cleaned the garage, took out garbage, and vacuumed. i did it all on crutches so none of it happened very quickly. now, today i can't get enough motivation to get out of bed. what is keeping me here, you ask? WKRP in Cincinnati. i can't seem to drag myself away and out of morbid curiosity i found myself googleing loni anderson just to see what she looks like today. what is wrong with me? the sole reason i got dressed is because my friend, other kyle, is coming to puff the herbal wisdom. in fact, he is here right now. excuse me.
