Carlos brought to my attention his recent exploration of road rash. Oh, Carlos, where can I learn more? Personal experience is often a better teacher than anything else.

My ping pong game was good today, but I hear the Olympic players are legendary! # I want a hydration pack that holds 1.5L or less and has a water-resistant/proof MP3 pocket w/headphone port. Ideas? # @HamWithCam Don’t hit the silver lining – some of us are banking on that! # Damn near wrecked on… Continue reading Twitter Updates for 2008-08-20
A Surreal Morning
Monday morning I began my day like many others. It was the first day of school for many, and it was the beginning of the work week for me. I also managed to get out the door in record time (related) that morning; the sun was just creeping up above the horizon as I set… Continue reading A Surreal Morning

Just as there are antihistamines to prevent this… Continue reading Instincts are Stupid

I’ve written about her recently – about an accident for which I still have not secured any funds for due to a State Patrol officer’s form-filling failure (damn you!). She was unable to deliver me home on this last trip; she… Continue reading Curtains for Bonny
Today my car was violated. As I drove soberly through inconsistent traffic in Gainesville, I noticed the 4 or 5-car pile-up that caused all the congestion. Continuing only 30 feet or so beyond the sad wrecks, I was greeted by screaching breaks and a solid thud into my trunk. The lady driving a Grand Jeep… Continue reading Long Goodbye’s
