Rain is Fine

Starting this post on the train this morning. It's Friday and still raining but I'm not going to be among the myriad of people whining about the rain. Seems like half the Facebook status updates of the last 24 hours are complaints about rain. It rains, these things happen.

I however feel good. I got out for a ride in the rain. I'm now living under the premise of No Excuses. It's too easy to make excuses for everything. I think Nike had it right: Just do it. Stop making excuses and live your life.

It's Friday and I'm strongly considering a day off Monday. It's supposed to be 52 and I need a colossal bike ride, in the 5 hour realms. Nat said, "Go for it." Maybe she's adopting my No Excuses philosophy. As long as I have nothing that needs attention Monday I think I'm going to pull the trigger. It would be really neat to put on the summer shoes again for a day and not wear the big gloves and winter jacket. Even if it's a single day I think it helps the soul.

I have some time tomorrow since Nat and Julia are going to a shower so I can get a 3 hour ride tomorrow and maybe 1-2 Sunday then bang out a huge Monday.

At 181 today and hoping to see 179 before the year is out. The 4 dozen cookies may have hurt the cause a bit last week but the entertainment value there has faded and we've stopped eating them. It's a tough time of year to lose weight but so far I'm still dropping a little each week.

On a lark this year I did another fantasy football league with some old high school friends I found on Facebook. Well the year ends and the guy is like, "Ok pay your $40 now." And I'm like fuck that, I don't gamble. So he said he would pick it up since I didn't know it was a money league but I'm sure this just severs the tenuous connection I had reestablished with them. No big deal I suppose since I hadn't talked to anyone in over 15 years.

That's all I got. In Penn Station now so I'm off to see if I can find dried cranberries and walnuts in this dump. Admittedly, I get a little OCD about some things. So sue me.

Coffee Comments

I'm sorry, I don't know what to name these posts anymore. You'll have to forgive me.

I'm taking the rare opportunity to blog at work this morning because work is so, so slow. I automated one of the build processes last week so when it came in last night I Was done with it in 6 minutes. I need more stuff like that to automate. It keeps me interested. But right now so little is coming in that I don't have a lot of material to work with.

I already finished my coffee but it was one of those moments when you smell the coffee and you're like, "Oh, that's just so perfect right now." By the end it was getting cold and not as good. I have like 50 comments to reply to.


i just felt obligated to comment. :)

Thanks. I'm glad someone is till reading/commenting. I can't blame you guys for bowing out because I don't update this thing very often. I just don't ride the train enough anymore.


There are better ways to freeze your ass off on your birthday. For example you could join us for a little football and tailgating. Just a thought.

I had no car at the time, so there ya go. If I had gone they would have lost anyway. I am the bad luck omen of RU football.

I was going to try and get to a game this year, but I have to be honest in saying I just never had any motivation to go. I just don't drink much anymore and I'm more or less bored by football. I don't think I watched a single quarter of pro or college football this year. Just not interested.

I made my fantasy football playoffs but lost to Terren. I asked myself why I bother playing anymore. The only reason I hung in there is because I got lucky with the draft and didn't have to change my lineup in the last 6 weeks. I score 98 and lost. I did nothing for over a month. I'm more interested in taking pictures of my basement and posting on flickr.

Man, my inbox is full of crap. I can't even find my old comments to comment on.

I ride my bike a lot still. I have a chance to hit 4000 miles on the road this year.
