Back to Normal, Almost
2007-07-11, 4:53 p.m.

Day 1053

Itís not funny how quickly you slip back into your normal routines after a little distraction like a vacation. Took a day to get back up to speed at work. Now thereís another guy out for this week, so besides getting caught up on my stuff, I get to cover a bit of his too. What a great way to catch up.

Saw this as an email tag line on a Yahoo group I belong to about smoking meat (cooking people, not that Ďotherí meat smoking). Made me think about Circe almost immediately:

Dyslexic, Agnostic, Insomniac...
Lying awake at night, wondering if there is a Dog.

Well, itís Circe except for the dyslexic part anyhow.

Saw this on her site too, so I did it:

$3740.00The Cadaver Calculator - Find out how much your body is worth. From Mingle2 - Free Online Dating

Mingle2 - Free Online Dating

Looks like Iíll have to stay alive till I catch some scientifically interesting disease.

Oh. Wait. Proceeds from my cadaver go to Cindy, donít they? Guess Iíd better stay alive just for spite then. Thatís much more likely to happen too.

Iím a little scattered today. Thought Iíd let you know, in case it isnít showing any.

No pedaling with Patty this morning. Must be she had the nerve to actually take a vacation or something and abandon us, forcing poor Maria to put up with us at 5:30 in the frickin morning. Still had a good class, got in a nice solid workout. Now I hope the weather settles down enough so I can get out on the REAL bike and get in some work this weekend.

Lately for us northerners itís been unreasonably hot & humid. Temps up past 90, humidididity well past 150% (seriously, you could drink the air), windy, thunder storms rolling through whenever they like Ė total chaos for weather. Also not very conducive to bike riding. Of course, being out of town doesnít help the riding either. So this week end? Staying home, hoping to sneak out for a nice 3 hour/50 mile trip Saturday morning before it gets all hot & nasty. Re-discovered some new hills to go test out, close to home, not horribly high, but nice & steep. Or maybe Iíll just ride part of the Tour de Cure route and take on some of the nastier hills there. I donít know. Iíll probably waffle on a route till after I get home Saturday.

Not that Iíve been checking or anything (Zach has, Iím trying to get him to realize the futility of it), but Cindyís normal hiding spots for her medicine of choice are so full of empties, she has no room for the full ones. Problems, problems.

My problem? Iím delaying going home. I do not want to know what state things are in. I do have some work I could take home. Itís even do-able out in the garage or in the basement as it involves actually building stuff. Yeah, Iíll do that. If things turn out lousy, I have a ďwork to doĒ excuse. If things are cool, I can just play along. Plus, I really need this circuit done tomorrow. Ugh.
