the death of this blog

well, at least until 1. we have two consecutive days over 60 degrees and 2. i get rid of this cold.

one bit of good news to end on is that i'll be taking a trip somewhere for AP training this summer.

bye bye

friday night update

we'll go to monk's when the bowling is finished.

i'm not going bowling, but maybe someone will call and tell us when they're done?

too much loafing and paperwork this week.

i work part-time at eros and we've gone through a contract negotiation. so now i have to apply for my job with the new company which was my old company about 8 months ago.

ah - federal government in action.

the former prez

of fab and former neighbor will be in town friday night.

plans are to meet at monk's.

no time yet.

the best-laid plans of mice and men

often go awry.

or in south dakota they go to the wind. so much for my first outside bike ride today. 25-35 mph winds turn me off.

it looks like FAB is going to have a great year two. lots of rides. fabrad will have catering and a band. a time trial series. a M.U.S.T. ride, coffee, donuts, a spring kickoff on april 26 and 27. oops, did i let the cat out of the bag ;-) and tez is a member this year! what more could we ask for?

ode to guinness

eDLoNNiE introduced me to mother's milk in 1982? 81? i don't remember exactly, but i do remember him coming from the bar to the table in chesterfields with two for himself and two for everyone else. those were the days.

so on this day of celebration keep this irish quote in mind:

When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to Heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven.
