Ride & Eat
That sums up my Thanksgiving holiday (aside from hanging out with Ryder & Denise). From Wednesday evening to Sunday, I was either riding my bike or eating large portions of food. We’re not talking your normal Thanksgiving gorging either. I’m talking about Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday spent rolling around on the floor each evening, bloated & in serious regret. Regret that only lasted until the next day when it started all over again. My only justification for it all is that I rode my arse off.
Wed. = 2 hours mountain bike
Thurs. = 3.5 hrs. mountain bike
Fri. = 4.5 hrs. road
Sat. = 6 hrs. road
Sun. = 2.5 hrs. mountain bike
For a grand total of 18.5 hours (give or take half an hour)
Now we’re talkin’. If I can keep that volume up for another 6 weeks, I’ll feel pretty good about all things racing. Maybe.
The DVD Situation
The ever-growing stack of unwatched DVDs at our house is becoming unmanageable. We just can’t seem to find the time to sit down & watch an entire movie without interruptions. Yet, when I turned on IFC on Friday evening & saw Pulp Fiction (uncut) was about to start, Denise & I somehow managed to watch the entire flick, even though we’ve both seen it over a dozen times. I guess it just goes to show how good Pulp Fiction really is. Unless we start watching all the on-loan DVDs soon, I’ll be forced to put up a sign in the front yard that says, “DVD Storage.”
To name a few, we have Boondock Saints, Dust to Glory (which I may or may not be boycotting), some NOFX documentary & Wedding Crashers. And those are only the few DVDs that I can remember. It hasn’t helped either that we recently got a DVR, so watching half-hour episodes of My Name is Earl, The Office & Comedy Central Presents is more convenient than ever. Jon Sorensen, once gave me his copy of Army of Darkness & I kept it for nearly a year. I finally returned it; unwatched. There’s just not enough time in the day I guess.

Yet again a X-mas tree went up instead of a Festivus pole. Will Ryder ever get to experience The Airing of Grievances & Feats of Strenght?
Speaking of Ryder: Denise just called to tell me that Ryder got the second of two flu shots & he didn't even cry. Kick ass.
