Brown Out

Two days ago my phone died. Last night the cable exploded. The energy spinning off of me in free radical stress electrons is shutting down traffic signals as I approach.

So I finally got on the bike and used some steam wisely.

Biscuits, gravy, beer, it doesn’t matter. The stress of home-purchasing grinds it all up and then the gut feeds on itself. Why am I not celebrating? I don’t have a key yet, that’s why. Until that happens I assume we are in an anything goes scenario, ergo the grinding.

A roll across town, through campus, after a disastrous football weekend got me off the couch. The CEO of Bike House, the new shop on Jackson Bluff road, he pulled the sword from the stone. I want to say more about that place, but it deserves better attention than I have right now. It has the whiff of success to it, I can tell you that much.

To all of you whom I have recently turned down for rides, I appreciate you keeping an eye on me. I intend to do better.

San Felasco registration happens this week.

  1. I keep looking for a “sale pending” sign at your future home. When’s the closing? Meanwhile, I have Monday off, strangely enough, even though it’s not a day of atonement in my cosmology. Available for a ride?

  2. I say you enter the Pisgah Mountain Bike Stage Race – America’s first ever mountain bike stage race running from Oct. 15-18. All that suffering might clear your mind. Oh, and wee-hoo! for Cadel Evans – another fabulous mountain biker.

  3. As soon as that “sold” sign is posted, I’m buying our plane tickets. And, to think, you’ll be that much closer to that fabulous multi-cultural Ross Dress 4 Less!
