Gloves

I was walking today, as most of us know, when you hit a cross walk, usually cars pretend you are not there. As I stood there I saw a Police car driving down the road, I thought... Oh he will stop. Then I realized... he wasn't going to stop.... Then I said...

What if I just step out and force him to stop.....
Then when he came screeching to a stop, I could just look at him and say
"Hey, Where did you learn how to drive."

Of course, suddenly I'd become very personal with a man a uniform and some leather gloves... and not in a loving embrace kind of way....

I'm not so much sure, that that would be any fun.....

Haim's assistant

(I'm going to get every bike rider in the city watching this)

Right, ..... So you know she Pines For Haim...... BADLY.... secretly deep in her "Hello Kitty" BedCover, and matching sheets, Room smells of way to much lavender and Vanilla. Where she lives with her Parents, and 3 younger siblings; Cody, Cynthia... and Nash.....

Yes, Yes she tried to have an acting career, was quite the character actor at Malibu High School, Even beat out one of Robert Wagner/Natalie wood's daughter to be the Dark Witch, in that years production of "Snow White".. Couple of bit parts, in ABC after school Specials "Why did Jimmy Commit Suicide", and "How I Accidentally killed my brother with a boat Paddle, when I was high."(doesn't that date me, This was an old Scott Baio Picture.) but years later decided "behind the scenes" was where she belonged, she Wanted to Direct.

Every day she watches him, Like Cathy Bates... And yet it's a TV show... so how can she kidnap him and get him tied up. Maybe if she is lucky he will go on a drug binge, and late at night she will get that call.... He is passed out in a Gutter.... she brings him back to the "Hello Kitty Lair", where in his drug induced state, he is overwhelmed by the Potpourri, and her soft motherly touches.....

And they fall madly in love.

And Every morning she wakes up from this blissful dream..... and wakes up, showers and continues to wait.

I know I'm a sick fucker.... But it's True Right?

Carlos Sastra... born in madrid

I'm just saying... guilt by being Spanish.....

But lets get on to The two correys... Kind of disappointed tonight..... and no, I don't want to see Mrs. Fieldman in playboy, I like hot chicks who I can pretend DON'T have whiny, annoying voices... as opposed to ones who do.

And alex debagorsky is off of the ice roads... and "The Parrot"... the alcoholic... is still hauling garbage... I don't get why he doesn't' realize that even "Hugh-The polar Bear" is hauling Sewage, which... seems harder.. but is more demeaning.

Also, they have a new pecking order, and have to earn respect in the new Arctic Circle "Ice roads"... That is just the way shit works....

I'm just saying... GUILT BY BEING SPANISH....
When A Frenchman comes in in the top 5 in Le Tour.... that is when it will be clean.... Of course a Frenchman can't actually win.... Because...
Well... the french can't win anything.... It's just not their style

Hi blog, how are you?

"I'm ok..... and you?"

"Insomnia again."

"Yep, what I figured"

"It's not, like I don't sleep. Friday nights are tough. Long week, I want to go to bed early... and I do. Went to bed at 8-9, But then it's 2am... and I'm still decompressing."

"why don't you drink?"

"Well, it seems to throw me off of my game. It's nice to let alcohol release me, and I do get good sleep, managed to put the week behind me and move on... But... I end up losing some lucidity. It's tough I tell you.... so here I sit, Either watching 'my hero's have always been cowboys' or restlessly rolling around in bed, in the dark."

"anything else."

"You know, Just the usual toil."

"well I, don't really know."

"hmmm, Well one can just call Toil, Toil.... regardless of subject.... we all Toil."

"I bet there are people who don't toil."

"hmm, That would be nice.... Seems like a pipe dream. What can I do... but toil"

I guess it's that time again

I have some Thursday night insomnia... I think this will be more prose.
I have this giant hole inside me.
It seems to be getting larger.
Last time I thought it was a vitamin deficiency.
Seemed like that worked.

But again, here it is.
For the most part it's fatigue.
By the end of the weak, I'm Beaten, like a 3 dollar mule.
It's like I need to refuel.
And I've tried, there is no amount of pie or cookies to fill this hole.

have you noticed how hot it is....
Well... Lets hope the vitamins work

Sham WOW!!

I just saw this commercial.... it was good to see Correy Haim got a regular gig.

As Per T-Bird's request... I've provided a link to the commercial.

Funny

Johan Bruneal...... thinks there should be a '0' tolerance policy.... and yet... everyone shouldn't suffer if one guy gets caught.....

"I mean, one guy gets caught.... Er... makes a mistake.... Er.... is unfortunately nailed by a Test that they didn't know was out there...... Well only the rider should be punished, not the team or the director.... I mean... that is just one unlucky guy.... er one bad apple... who was caught, and the team can't control that. And it's unfair for the sponsors to punish him... I mean, they are doing a great job advertising for the company... and what company wants to sponsor losers."

All in his new book "who would give money to losers. so... at any cost."

I'm paraphrasing what I though he said.....

The solution is ZERO TOLERANCE.... by everybody. No more turning a blind eye...

hmm

So I missed who won the stage today... I'm hoping I can make it through the last hour of todays race this evening....

Hot isn't it....

I was out on a walk today..... I don't get enough exercise, sure enough, there I am steeling apricots from peoples trees..... I also noticed I missed cherry season... lots of nice cherries That I could see, had long since dried up on the sidewalks......

Yep... I'm this interesting.

It does look like cadel is going to have to earn it, and not just be defaulted the Jersey by experience.

The Known and the unknown

Apparently they are opposite, or a dichotomy or something..... but that doesn't' stop me from getting them confused.

Cause, I'm tired, and they keep acting .... well like one is an index finger and the other a thumb. Individual fingers, work well together. but different....and part of the same hand...

and I'll be leaving you all with that nice ramble...

Which reminds me... You know the old blog?... I'm too much of a narcissist to have "Erased it"

http://themopinator2.blogspot.com/

No green for cavindish?

Hell of a year though.... he was sad.... Sounds like that boy needed some disappointment... Clear a little hubris from his blood

This is her comment:

As for trading the tour for the PBR,
well, those bull riders do wear tight pants,
but road racing is still the sexiest thing going.

So, I hold out hope that the sport will rise above all the scandal.
Just like people will still long for and buy sports cars in spite of the oil crisis.
We're human after all...we need beauty...and truth.

For those of you don't know this is a play on ....



625. Ode on a Grecian Urn

THOU still unravish'd bride of quietness,
Thou foster-child of Silence and slow Time,
Sylvan historian, who canst thus express
A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme:
What leaf-fringed legend haunts about thy shape 5
Of deities or mortals, or of both,
In Tempe or the dales of Arcady?
What men or gods are these? What maidens loth?
What mad pursuit? What struggle to escape?
What pipes and timbrels? What wild ecstasy? 10

Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard
Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on;
Not to the sensual ear, but, more endear'd,
Pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone:
Fair youth, beneath the trees, thou canst not leave 15
Thy song, nor ever can those trees be bare;
Bold Lover, never, never canst thou kiss,
Though winning near the goal—yet, do not grieve;
She cannot fade, though thou hast not thy bliss,
For ever wilt thou love, and she be fair! 20

Ah, happy, happy boughs! that cannot shed
Your leaves, nor ever bid the Spring adieu;
And, happy melodist, unweari├Ęd,
For ever piping songs for ever new;
More happy love! more happy, happy love! 25
For ever warm and still to be enjoy'd,
For ever panting, and for ever young;
All breathing human passion far above,
That leaves a heart high-sorrowful and cloy'd,
A burning forehead, and a parching tongue. 30

Who are these coming to the sacrifice?
To what green altar, O mysterious priest,
Lead'st thou that heifer lowing at the skies,
And all her silken flanks with garlands drest?
What little town by river or sea-shore, 35
Or mountain-built with peaceful citadel,
Is emptied of its folk, this pious morn?
And, little town, thy streets for evermore
Will silent be; and not a soul, to tell
Why thou art desolate, can e'er return. 40

O Attic shape! fair attitude! with brede
Of marble men and maidens overwrought,
With forest branches and the trodden weed;
Thou, silent form! dost tease us out of thought
As doth eternity: Cold Pastoral! 45
When old age shall this generation waste,
Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say'st,
'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.'

The market

So.... What is interesting is this.... I don't know if you people follow "The market"....

But, on Monday.... the market narrative was that every bank in the country was going to go bankrupt.... Nobody was going to buy a home ever again, The bread lines were about to start, umn.... the whole bit....

Well Sure enough. Tuesday... the bank stocks started rallying, and have moved +50% in 4 days.

why... Well, the damn things had a yield on them in the 7-20% range... Every banking stock... It was the Craziest thing I had ever heard....

so when you read in the paper... all the Bullshit, fear, the market oozes.... Realize it's counter intuitive.... The move was to "BUY" the weakness.

Shhhhhh around the holidays the market will be afraid again "Christmas is Canceled!!!!! It's over" "Charles Dickens is coming, and scrooge is going to Eat all the Toys."....

well I wonder what the move then is going to be....

My real point is "if you read the paper and decide to buy or sell stock" it's going to be a mistake."

Back to oil

So..... I spoke too soon... I was running some models.... we could get a new high in oil this fall....

Stock up...

We can always hope...

what we need is a great Bike that also has a little motor on it...

"you know For Kids..."

They do about 5 Perp Walks during "the Tour" and we may get that sorted out.

Someone was talking about how if that keeps happening nobody will like cycling.Which again is that "lets turn a blind Eye to it"...

I mean... if that is what cycling is... Lets just see it... Entrails and all.... Those guys want to show their asses.

worst thing would be if they just do it this year, and then shove their heads up their asses again.

weird how things can be catch 22's, either they get rid of the dopers, and nobody will like cycling. Or they don't get rid of them and nobody will like cycling....

I vote no dopers...

I was ..... well

Oil Oil Everywhere none of it to drink.
The Saudi, the oilmen, our bosses, they need it so I can get to work.
I'd rather just stay home and Drink.

Soil soil Everywhere none of it to eat.
Toil Toil Every day, not a day to sit and Think
What about this heat.

(this one only took me 5 minutes, I didn't know what the hell I was going to do...)

milton friedman

So, Hopefully unless you live in a bomb shelter. you know about the great growth in china.....

GO China!! you deserve to not be the third world... now create a culture of your own, and don't emulate "branjolina" hollywierd America...

I digress....

I was challenged on oil prices...

China has been stocking up pre-olympics... The supply demand story is very tight... as the prices show... and with all our SUV's we have screwed ourselves.. oh wait,,, I don't drive an SUV, I have a bike mostly.

in the tight supply demand, this increased demand has placed a huge premium on gas, in a very sensitive time in our economy...

I'll suspect that with people not driving as much with $4.00 gas, and some moderating demand in foreign markets, prices should "Stabilize"... and hopefully we start building Lighter more efficient forms of transportation.

But as that Asshole Bush takes credit for dropping prices when Seasonally oil prices moderate in this time frame. Milton Friedman, suggests that when there is a "Crisis" you take advantage it to allow business to push through unfavorable Policies.

This is how "economic Hitmen" from the CIA take advantage of the third world nations to a low our "international Business Complex" to feed and devour the resources from these countries.

You want the "Conspiracy theory" on oil... that's it... and the worse thing oil companies want is us deciding to ...Work on Fusion... or. Alternative energy.... so he comes out with "Drill Drill Drill"... Just so we extend this economic death spiral with oil.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

Oil

good news bad news... that dope Dubja and his Drill drill drill policy is going to take credit for it...
but Oil cracked today... but it's a seasonal thing.. but oil should break hard 3 weeks we should see some better gas prices for the Humvies..

I tell you what could be a deal... an suv down at the dealer, they are giveing them away even used. but in a couple months the value of a used suv should be much higher

Poetry Friday Brainstorming

Oh, how I hate the Pressure of poetry Friday.
I know I won't have time to do this tomorrow.
so I sit here with my evening Graham crackers.
Dead tired.

Rhyms with:
  • friday: someday, hayday.
  • Tomorrow: aero, Afro, Aloe, speedo, Cheno, Porno, Pillow
  • crackers: Answers, Banters, Bikers,,cedars, fleecers, Gezers
  • Tired: acquired, admired, retired, hired, perspired, required.
I know that in my Hayday
I will be finished, Someday.

I have a cut and it needs some aloe.
If I don't get this done, I'll end up in Cheno.
I'd rather be watching a Porno.
wish I had an afro
I don't want to think about a spedo
soon my head will hit the pillow.

I defiantly don't have the Answers.
A blog for a bunch of Bikers.
all my neighbors are a bunch of gezers.

I hope this fills what is Required.
Thankfully this is done before I've perspired.
Maybe this will make me admired.

Doh!!!

Here it comes, Poetry Friday.....

Hey Rockey, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!!!http://www.rockyandbullwinkle.com/jwt/media/bullwinkle_bg1.jpg

So I sit here with my evening Graham crackers.
I defiantly don't have the Answers.

Thankfully this is done before I've perspired.
I hope this fills what is Required.

The last Free Soul on the Planet

And there goes the Challenger,
being chased by the blue,
blue meanies on wheels.

The vicious traffic squad cars are after our lone driver,
the last American hero,
the electric centaur,
the,
the demi-god,
the super driver of the golden west!

Two nasty Nazi cars are close behind the beautiful lone driver.
The police numbers are gettin' closer,
closer,
closer to our soul hero,
in his soul mobile,
yeah baby!
They about to strike.
They gonna get him.
Smash him.

Rape... the last beautiful free soul on this planet.http://www.jdmfilmreviews.com/images/vanishing-point-dvd1.jpg
..In honor of the last American hero,
to whom speed means freedom of the soul.

The question is not when he is going to stop,
but who is going to stop him.

Final leg of the uptrend

Lets see if this develops

Deadliest catch.

... Well What to say about that show....

Well, Phil makes me wonder why anyone smokes, that guy has less than 10 years left... You can just see the time ticking away. Obviously he needs to stand more, eat more fruit, and stop smoking.

I have no doubt I could do that job, But that lifestyle is so unhealthy.... and then there is the Danger...

Yep... this post is super lame.....

2 corrys was a rerun, I think it's new next week... *sigh*

Years ago I weened myself off of TV. Until they killed Romano, I watched Every Episode, of ER. That was an awful time, how could you kill the single Greatest Antagonist on the show. Being ER they hyped it up, about how someone was going to die, I'm not sure if this was before or after they killed "goose", there he is A cripple, Can barely operate any more.. I felt he had a chance at some personal redemption. So what do they do... Drop a helicopter on him... about 30 minutes into the episode, I said, Out loud "if they kill Romono, I'm going to stop watching this show. Sure enough, they drop a helicopter on him... I did lie, I caught a few episodes later. Everyone was too nice to each other, I wanted to Puke.

After that, I refused to pick up new shows... I just wouldn't start watching any. I did, though start watching some things if i could get them on some form of video. so, I did start "24" for 4 seasons, and "the Shield"... If you can get the first 2 seasons of "the shield" do it, it is 2 of the greatest seasons of TV ever produced... Sure, I'm still watching it, Fortunately they are on the last season this winter.... but I do regret in increasing measure, every season past "Season 2".

sitcoms, I haven't seen a sitcom in years... Ok, I do catch the occasional "Scrubs" rerun, now and again. You know what it was, the end of Seinfield, I wanted that hour back, more than I wanted the last episode of "MASH", back.

That is it, I have to go to bed...

one love

For Friday

I just had an idea and started working on my friday post... I'm so exhausted. and I'm compleatly overreaching, and have created my own poetry form...

I'll probably have to simplify.

Unfortunately it's not about Peas and Potatoes. But I will run that as a backup.

Good Mojo

Well, I have the good Mojo going for Kelly's mom. it's one of those things that makes me remember how stupid my jokey little blog is, and how important the people around us are...

Good Mojo!!!

Robby Mac

I've decided that this is his plan... Every year he hardly contests the first few sprints.....
What he does is doesn't work his ass off on the first few... and as every other sprinter, burns every bit of energy they have, against each other in the first few sprints. Robby waits Lets them all burn tons of early energy in the first few sprints and then after every one is tired, he starts kicking out the wins.

Or this is a massive rationalization for his slow early performance, every year

Time Trial

I had a hard time getting into the time trial today....

I was very busy.... Hopefully I'll sort it out this evening...

seems very exciting on the TV.

good tour this year... lots of losing and gaining the jersey..

Robby Mac sort of won his first stage....

I'm starting to worry he is getting old.

One Love everyone.

Frenchman

Some Crazy Frenchman win both the stage and the Yellow....

Sweet and it isn't even Bastille day

...Another Day in Paradise

Umn... or another day of constant Grind. I'm excited about.....

Problem with a good night(Saturday night) of fitful hang over sleep, is not much REM....so Last night was a great night to catch up on some Healthy Sleep.
I woke up this morning, Very haunted.... Up for 10 minutes, and had some heavy memories of a former Girlfriend, and some other stuff.... good times.

ah Hell with it this morning.....

I wonder if I have any fruit around here.... Today seems like a good morning for fruit.

We have a winner

In one of my recent Massive Rambling posts(I do go on, don't I) I suggested a Repeat of the Poetry Friday Fiasco....

Ask yourself, what good is a Fiasco if you don't Repeat the same mistakes?

UnknownSideEffect Signed up, and as a Reward I've added them to the Blogroll.... and, I'm just saying... Those that play... Get added....

Just letting you know what the reward for torturing yourself with a little Poem or small Prose for the next few weeks of Tour...


and it's fun... Stretch that Grey matter a little bit...... How Now, Brown Cow!!!

I've also added links to both a site with "Types of poetry", and a rhyming dictinary.... And Prose count too.

Out Running

I was out running this morning... I'm more boasting about how good I was with a hangover to still manage ... Well what I try and pass off as an attempt at a run...

There I am, Through the neighborhood. And I notice someone's house is toilet papered. Seems like it had been mostly cleaned up, and it being 5am... It must have been toilet papered on the 4th of July... Some nice Drunken move that night, By some bitter neighbors...

You see, the house was Immaculate. In all my gardening, and some minor Obsessive Work on my own Shrubbery, Now I look at peoples homes differently. I realize how much work and love some people put into their yard. Countless Saturdays, Pacing the yard with a set of clippers, Hedge Trimmers. In an act of obsessive love that Few can imagine. This home had the Nice lines in the Grass that Somehow show up by magic. Every Tree Perfectly Shaped, Barely a Leaf out of place. Unimaginable Layout of Colors in Nice Layers.

And some bitter, Angry, Spiteful People... Wanted to destroy it. If you don't know, People are very destructive, Jealous people. And anytime you create or build something... There are Awful people out there so Black in their heart... They desire to destroy, what they can't have.

I think I have to shower after all of that....

Fed, almost broke down in the post match interview.

Let me suggest, the way Nadal plays, he will have one of those short careers.... Cudo's to him for being so physical... but at one point you pay for it..... Maybe I'm just being a bitter ass

Wholly Tennis

I'm tired just from watching.... I'm never going to finish "Tough Guys Don't dance". Of course I could be tired from killing a full bottle of wine and getting up at 1am

7 hours I've been watching this... with some breaks... thanks to rain delays..

It's like a couple of boxers in the 30th round, on autopilot. Hoping they get through. Both Stone faced Champions, emotions trying to break out of that Steel Facade..... I sound like some cliche SI story.

GOOD GOD!! Rafa Nadal has the start of a grand slam....

Roger says he will compete for 5-10 more years.... I hope this is a chance for Roger to show if he will actually Fight out the rest of his Career...

With the Euro cup win, and nadal 2 slam champion... Spaniard will win Le tour

Thor....

Nice to see the Frenchman out proving they can make Ridiculous moves, that are more about showing that they are in the game than have any long term strategy, besides.... "maybe a bowling ball will fall from the sky and hit the whole peloton.."

Well.... I always feel bad when I talk about jesus... I don't mean to be a dick. I just can be some of the time. I intend to be inclusive, and that kind of stuff doesn't cut it.... It's obvious I have a chip on my shoulder... and I'm sorry.

We all Wrestle with our Demons, but I still refuse to capitalize it.

So.... The tour Day 2 Prerace comments

To be honest I have yet to see the "born of jets" advert. I am very desensitised to it, so it could be on, and I'm just not seeing it.

This is what I wanted to blog about.... I was psyched about the finish, Lots of great 2 wheeled uphill action... Great stuff.
and my early favorites are Valverde and evans.

I hate the "Brand new start", "taking back the Tour"... Because as jaded as I am. I just.... What a lode of Poo, it takes more than a Motto to reform cycling, and thinking that "Cleaning up Cycling" wouldn't be a 10 year Grind of: embarrassing, laundry Airing, fist fighting, Grinding, Spitting, Shitting, pissing, Bloody Fight, Is just naive... and throwing some window dressing on a "pig" don't make it Datable.

But I love the tour
After Saying all that.... I hate to make Generalizations, but it seems to me that if you had to pick the nationality with the most confirmed Dopers in it.... It's the Spanish... I mean, the french haven't had a consistent winner for ages, It's obviously they aren't doping. Maybe 70% of international cyclists are Spanish, and I see it that way because of the larger distribution of Spaniards in the Data.

But... in the "Taking Back the tour" year... I find it worth a little giggle that a Spaniard won right out of the gate.

Oh.... and Fuck Tom Boonen.... Go Robby Mac!!!
I wonder if we will see some new sprinters emerge this year, one would think so.

1am

I just woke up with those 1am sweats. Needed to pee Too(just to over share), It also crossed my mind that I'm fortunate I don't piss all over my floor sometimes. Maybe that is better phrased, I'm Pleasantly surprised I don't.

A big glass of water will sort all this out... Maybe I'll shower, Maybe I'll open my door and let some of that cool decadent air conditioning into my room...

"My God, it's hot. Stepped out of the shower and started sweating again. Is it still burning? Jesus, it's bigger. What is it?"
"It's the Seawater Inn. My family used to eat dinner there twenty-five years ago. Now somebody's touched it to clear the lot. "
"It's a shame."
"My history is burning up out there."

"you're not too smart are you? i like that in a man."

If you haven't seen that movie, You have to see it. It allows you to realize why William Hurt and Kathleen Turner didn't spend their lives Flipping Burgers.
Have I ever let you all in on my theory that Air conditioning is part of the reason for the obesity epidemic, Nobody would allow themselves to get into the 300 pound range if there wasn't air conditioning.... Either that or they would just die.

Just to let you all in on how stupid my sister is, She didn't have air conditioning for a few years. I asked her how she did that? she had this huge ritual, to lock in cool air in the morning. Then it all crescendoed with "Then if I don't move around all day, it's fine"

There is a great Nova about the "First Flower", Super interesting. It never occurred to me how important the way flowers reproduce was to the way our entire ecosystem developed.

I'm dying to know what I posted last night...... If I read it, I'll probably take it down... and that wouldn't be any fun now would it...

Hmmm How about that shower.

Elias was a Crusader

And if the Machine Breaks down, we break down, and I ain't going to allow that.

Me, drunky Drunk Drunk... but I'm home, and in bed, ready to pass out. I've rehydrate, taken my vitamins... it's 8pm...

I figure in my drunken stupor, it's probably time for me to throw my "A" blog game down.

I imagine some of the new Folks ask:
"why the affection for "the mop", that blog seems distracted and scattered... I just don't get it"

Well... I'd like to imagine Game on: here we are, Middle of growing season, mid cycling season... It's time to throw down.

"I'd like to hear about it Pot Heads, you boys take this shit to escape from reality, I AM REALITY"

Sometimes... I hope that nobody thinks I talk about my ideal life... I suffer... They say "I only teach "Suffering, and the Elevation of suffering". I sit, every day.... Work 8-16 hours a day... with maybe 2-4 hours of decompression, Repeat.... I mentioned today, that I hate Financial advisers, Social Scientists, Myopic Jesus worshipers(sorry... love to the Jesus worshipers, sorry you don't get Evolution.(in your nomenclature," to those who more is blessed more is expected, and to those who less is blessed, less expected".... So... Love to all of you, Please I understand... it's a Mad mad world)... And I totally get it... so really... One Love.

"we walk a narrow path between divinity and trickery"

For the past year I'd like to think that I've achieve some clarity, with a sort of emphasis for 'finding my bliss' and Accepting the reality which is, there for all to experience, and few to see.... I like to convince myself that I have of an ability to glimpses "Reality" and Peer through the illusion which Haunts us all.... As you read this, and think "well I'm plenty caught up in reality. this Mother is a nut job"...
Just as a Mental exercise.. one can consider that the more concrete one be lives their reality is, the more dis-connected one probably is from Reality. The only constant in the universe is change, A concrete universe is only The most subject to the Greatest shattering of all it's illusions.....

"you all loved elias,....you all want to kick ass... well here I am all bye my lonesome, ain't nobody going say nothing."



"death, what do you all know about death!"


And As I reflect on this post, It reminds me of Icarus... and a warning to not fly too close to the sun........

and I am Humbled...... I know nothing. And remember .... the enemy is always "within ourselves"

Epic Garden post

My small chamomile, just beyond some cucumbers.

This is my lounging aria in the garden. that tree is a pagoda tree..... I'm hoping to turn it into a large version of a Banzai tree.

This is a nice picuter of me pulling potatoes. Nice staged photo, Yummy red potatos. I have 50 some odd plants.

This is a row of Beets, There are 2 types of beets, beets for eating a beet, and beets for Beet greens, I grow both, the beets give me early beets, but I prefer the beet greens, All you do is thin them as they grow... and eat them up... then the last thing you have from a Beet that is more apt to beet greens than beets is a Beet ... sorry that sounds wierd but.. I'm just saying that the beet green beets grow into beets, but later in the season.

A beet and some chamomile I harvested(this is not a link)



This is my dinner, all from the garden, assciated Greens on the left, and some chicken peas and potatos on the right, with some chicken... and a full bottle of wine. Everyting but the corn and chicken comes from the garden..oh and the wine

Most the food gone, and half the wine.... though I'm posting this, I'm about to go out and finish the bottle and do some weeding.

Super Exciting

It's lame, but I get Psyched to read a new blog.

BTW, though my affections were split this morning Between Wimbledon and Le Tour.... Which BTW the last 4 K and the last 3 games of the final set were at exactly the same time.

I was Super Excited to See Venus Win.... and The Finish today was Great, I thought I was going to be disappointed with no Prolog. But overall it was a nice Climbing sprint finish.... which was AWESOME!!!

Just because... well... I just figure I need to update some stuff... Not that you give a shit, but It's weird Kind of if I fess up to it on the blog, it's less like I'm in denial in my life.

I've been in awful shape... I fell off the heavy wagon last year, when I almost went to blows with a motorist. I was hoping it was going to come to blows, and it didn't That little Piece of shit. But with that then added work stress, it's been Very hard to get out every day. I'm still managing some sad exercise, and I'm trying to get out and either walk or run every morning. But I'm on that decaying slide of every excuse in the book to not stay in shape. I'm Exhausted in the afternoons, since these days I get up at 3am...
Which is my favorite part of the day, I have become a morning person. Hell I'm almost excited to get up, and excited to face my day... Which is the antithesis of who I have been most my life. So, I'm just hinting, that Like Non-Smokers to Smokers, Night people to Morning, It is possible to be that other person.. Very opposite side of the same coin. I used to love that quiet time from 10pm-3am, and now I love 2am-7am. I love that everything is quiet, I'm rested, and the world is full of possibilities..... I'm just saying.. that transition is possible, But I am, as a morning person is, a miserable cuss in the evenings, and I want to hit people who mow their lawns at 8-9pm.

Another thing, It's tough for me to Bang through blog posts, I'm very focused on work, and if it involves Sector rotation, Economic Armageddon, and commodities.... I can go on for hours. (BTW, though I've been wrong for months, Oil will get cheaper) But gas won't. Sorry $4.00 is here to stay. I will hazard to say that there is a strong possibility of 8.00 Gas in the next 5 years. I keep thinking I should build an electric Scooter. But to point out my lack of focus, My point is, it's hard for me to Bang through posts without Losing track of what I'm saying mid sentence, let alone keep a full paragraph together.... and I'm sorry to/for you as a reader.

The Garden, I've been asked about it, The Greenhouse, that most of you saw Being built, and you never got a full sense of it's capacity, has been great... though once again, I've been so busy with work, and being exhausted, I almost won't go out, because then I spend hours Weeding to exhaustion and most days I just need rest... WHOLLY RUN ON SENTENCE!!! my third grade teacher said I had a problem with those. The garden is solid this year.

So, First thing you put in every year are Peas, and Spinach, and I'm knee deep in them right now. And all my red potatoes are in a sweet spot of being that excellent size of a Golf Ball, or maybe half the size of a baseball, Just a nice 2-3 bite size potato. Things of Beauty.

So first you get some Greens, Later plantings of Kale, and Beets, start producing just before Peas. so First from the Garden are Greens, which you Steam, and have with some vinegar. Then

The Greatest Early summer late Spring Meal.... PEAS AND POTATOES, I grow a Sugar Snap Pea, Sugar snaps are delicious all the way through, you can eat them Whole, and the pod is sweet and the whole thing is delicious Raw, But Steam a few young potato's and some Peas, and you have what is an amazing Meal, and with the Shells of the Peas... Plenty of that Amazing Mystical Fiber!!!! Steamed, a bit of vinegar(Basalmic, Malt, Red Wine) In fact that is so yummy sounding, I'm thinking that will be dinner tonight.

But to be clear, I am having some trouble with weeds this year.... Not enough time... Maybe after dinner I'll kill a bottle of wine and go out and weed for a few hours.

Also Mentiond was the Habanjero Jelly... For those of you who havn't had it... It is Amazing on about anything, Specificly MEAT, but I bet it would be good on Tofu or Tofu burgers... some other options... Cream cheese and Crackers... It's easy to make, In fact since I threw together about 40 jars 2 years ago, I still have yet to go through them all. I also did some Apricot variants. That stuff is amazing...

SO... This is what I want to mention.... With my rustyness on the blog, and That I need some distractions with work. I'm also so stoked about the cycling Spouse, and other blogs, I'm curious, for the legnth of the tour, at a minimum. Is anyone up for Poetry Friday Redux?.

I may just give it a shot regardless, but if you are commited(or should be commited, like myslef). Drop me a comment, and you too can be in for the samefull embarasment of not being very good at Prose. Also that way I can give you some motivation/encouragement.

Another nice thing is that you can Create Drafts in blogger and work on it as you have time during the week, that is what I used to do. I'd start a new one every friday and edit it all week, or even be motivated to have a few ideas, and work on them as drafts.

Born of Jets

Oooooppph, not going to get sick of that and I haven't even heard it yet.

you are going to have to excuse me but I'm having a hard time following Cycling. With the exception of the
  • Career of the Great Swindlehurst.
  • J-rad's cycling adventures with sushi and snow.
  • Sandy, and his Quest for the Jaundice Jersey
  • Julie, and the humide torsion chamois
  • Art and his .... something involving Punk and Anger.
  • Gary who I don't have a joke for
  • Turbo and Kelly's 2 wheel Tour of glory- Which every night, I imagine they say Grace, to cute little polygamist Mormon baby Jesus for their great fortune to raise their daughters doctor quin and medicine woman,


  • The worst part here is that I feel like I need to mention everybody and make a good joke
But.... First Doper Tom Boonen, Sweet... Apparently it was recreational drugs.... I was hoping he was just smoking some loco Weed, or took some X... but nope.... Boonen Caught riding the rails.. cocain. Well Tom You showed them.

I guess I have to talk about this, Fuck you, bitches I love the tour. Second, For all you dumb asses and "Let Levi Ride", One of the things we learn in Gramer school is that SLEEP WITH DOGS WAKE UP WITH FLEES. Who you chose to associate with reflects on you. So, to be Flat honest. And you notice Rabobank gets to ride... Why, because when it was obvious their rider was lying and doping, they booted him, Yellow jersey or not. They had their image and brand to protect. That is how it should be, and to be honest I still think that sponcers should randomly test their athletes as well. As opposed to turning that convinient blind eye, and Making it ok with a sly little Wink....
What is the Legal Prase, "Qui tacet consentit" (silence implies consent)


Team Columbia, WTF.... I love how just before Le Tour the big money comes in. "Well we like cycling, but only for the tour."
(nice to see HighRoad/Columbia have a woman's team)

And when did they become Team slipstream argyle chipolte chips garmin?

Oh.... and Come-on Venus Beat that Nare-Do-Well Serina.
Sweet Venus broke her back.

This is like early 2000 Redux

Ah ha!!! I have it,

I was watching Open Water 2: Adrift.... 6 people jump off a boat and forget to lower the ladder... Ok, I didn't watch all of it.. and curly I find it like natural selection.

Point being they cant get up the side of the boat.... But... I have a solution to their problem. They have a Knife, and they could use it to chip some hand holds above the water line to get up the side of the boat.

(or did they do this and that is how some of them died)

I doubt I'll finish watching it... cause the original was awful, I'm all about "unhappy endings" problem is... sometimes things are just Hollywood snuff films
