Thursday Hate

Portland: Cyclist's Utopia? Not quite sure about that.

----------

Boonen blows it. A total snow job for such a minor infraction. He's walking a rail here. Quite a bump in the road.

----------

Bike Thieves. there is a special place in hell for these people. I hopehopehope I actually see this guy. Be on the look out for a very pro bike, with very un-pro rider on it. I will be using something a little more precision guided than that method that Matt suggests, should I see this asshole.

----------

And, hey! I want my tomatoes back. Why is it so hard not to wash produce in raw sewage? Oh right. Because you don't give a shit. Well, actually...you gave us your shit.

----------

Tornadoes. I've never even seen one, and I lived in Texas for 7 years, but they scare the shit out of me. And this coming from a guy who lived in the most seismically active place in the world, who once slept through a 6.5 rumbler.

But I hate Boy Scouts too, so this is kind of a draw.

----------

Not that I really hate it...but I have a day off tomorrow and I'm not even going to be able to sleep in! I've got too much stuff to do! It is a big weekend, you realize. Load the truck, volunteer at Bike to Work Day, pick up the keg. So busy, in fact, I won't be able to go to Cat 5 opening night at the track, as Jeff just pointed out, below. Shit. That is something to hate.

When's a writer to find any time to blog?

Oh, yeah. Work.

And Friday night is opening night for 5's at the track (should it decide to not rain).

Tomatoes on the vine are fine. And they're delicious.

Yes, but the cafeteria here is no longer serving caprice salad. F*$%.

Don't tase Rev. Phil, Bro!

He brought us "The Pornography of the Bicycle" at the Music Box Theater a few months back.

I hung out with he & his crew, seemed like a decent fellow.

This seems extreme, even for cops.
