Off to the ride!!!

I am VERY happy to report that I am off to SF for my week long ride back to LA on the old bicycle. Wish me luck, and I will post all the gayness when I return. Tailwinds to you all.......

Giro d' Italia

Ok, so I was posting all the stages of the Giro, but then it just got lame. Not the race, actually quite the opposite. The race from what Ive been READING  has been fantastic, and although i can watch the last 5 minutes of the race on YouTube.....its just not the same. Pissed and disappointed. You would think that because I have a SATELLITE on the roof of my home I would be able to watch any sporting event in the world. If i wanted to watch a cricket match in Poland, at the price I pay for the dish, I should be able to do just that but cant. Receiving 996 different channels is sweet, receiving 727 with one showing the Giro would be sweeter. 

Happy Birthday Morrissey

Happy Birthday to Morrissey, Happy Birthday to Morrissey.....Happy Birthday to Morrissey..Happy Birthday to you.

This charming man turns 50 today. God bless his soul.

Giro Stage 2

Giro Stage 1

18 days and counting.

 The older you get, the faster time seems to pass by. It seems as though it was a month or two ago that I returned home from the best week of my year. The best week every year. The week of the AIDS Ride. Not being able to wait would be a severe understatement. This is the ultimate week of cycling for my friends and I. Yes, its a great chance to raise money for the common good. Yes, it helps out millions of people in need. But at the end of the day, its a week of fully supported cycling. All 600 miles are beautiful. The coast, the mountains of Santa Cruz, the vineyards, the beach.....So its that time of the year again, and I cant believe it's only 18 days away. Hopefully I will be able to raise all the money needed to participate ($3000). It gonna be close this year as most people are a bit worse off then previous years. Either fucking goin.
Although time does seem to fly when you get older, there are still a few things that can take your flying, and turn it into a snails pace. One such thing would be the waiting for the parts to your new bike. This has made life stop. What was supposed to be here last Friday, now wont be here till Wednesday. Argh. So time is ticking by ever so slowly. That is, until I get my new machine......then life will resume back to its week stealing pace.  Until then........

dont be gay, DONATE

I Made It!!!!

You know they say that some things are a blessing in disguise. Had it not been for me getting fired, I would have never been able to get the acclaimed Blue Star Achievement Award from Ebay.  Chew on it bitches......
