whew.

thankfully, this day’s about over.

life has been a little nuts lately (resulting in my lack of posting). but that’s o.k. – nuts is better than staid and boring.

some highlights:

  • had the non-drive crank arm fall off my town bike while riding down Calhoun Street. since i (mistakenly, apparently) chose to use a super-beefy downhill chainset, nobody has a crankarm fixing bolt to hand. so i’ll just have to ride one of my other bikes. such a hardship.
  • got some work done on the project car. almost ready to turn it around and work on the other side. hopefully, work will accelerate at this point, as the hardest fab work is done.
  • midterms are past. ow. but i feel better this semester at this point than i did last semester, so that’s a plus.
  • the weather seems to have turned around. pretty soon, i’ll be kvetching about heat instead of cold.
  • who thought it was a good idea to have spring break end the day after the daylight savings change? really?
  • i like bats. got to watch several of them Saturday evening, waiting for the box office to open at Theater 99.
  • the 60th anniversary of the Commonwealth is next month. they’re looking for new members, too. wonder who i’d have to convince to let us in?
  • i’ve decided to ignore the economy. y’all should too. it’s depressing, and for no good reason.
  • Watchmen was o.k. not “the greatest movie ever” or even “the greatest comic movie ever,” but o.k. certainly better than i expected. *see note below.
  • i got a speeding ticket. and i didn’t even mean to be speeding. but the State Trooper was really cool, and the ticket isn’t too terribly expensive.
  • on that note, the Honda is still running. every day, i’m pleasantly surprised. let’s hope it continues.
  • the Bridge Run (and Wholly Cow ride) are both coming up soon-ish. hope you’ve registered.
  • and baseball is back.

happy spring, everybody.

quote of the day:

“The kind of man who wants the government to adopt and enforce his ideas is always the kind of man whose ideas are idiotic.” – H.L. Mencken

* just for those who are wondering, the greatest comic book movie ever is The Rocketeer.
