The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men, Gang aft agley

August 4, 2008
Filed under: bicycles,weather — bcd @ 10:23 pm

that Robert Burns, he was a helluva guy. i remember this quote about once a month, never repeating it with the ending “oft go awry” but always as it was written (quoted in the title), mostly b/c my AP English teacher in high school was badass.

so why am i quoting some 18th century poem for ya? b/c my plans after work were to hit the local grocery for supplies for both home and the shop. today happened to coincide with Hurricane Panic 2008, Edouard Edition!

wtf? seriously, the grocery store was a mad house. i went down the soda aisle, which also happens to be the water aisle – it looked like the hurricane had already hit. i expected to see physical violence with Sexy Susie Suburbs clawing Cougar Cathy Careermom’s eyes out over the last bottle of Fiji water. it was out of control.

so i got that going for me, which was the opposite of nice. as in shitty.

anyway, i lived, but my planning is not the best. i guess watching the weather during the weekend might have clued me in. although, seriously (again), it’s a fscking tropical storm. we live on the Gulf Coast. haven’t you mother scratchers seen these before? i don’t think this qualifies as “hell or high water” territory. do we really need to be hording water and batteries for something lower than a Cat 3? jebus.

in better news, check it:

2006 Klein Reve X

2006 Klein Reve X

that, my friends, is a 2006 Klein Reve X. i bought it on eBay today. we’ll see when it gets here if this is going to qualify for the road bike i want, or if i end up building it up with average parts and keeping it b/c i have a soft spot for Kleins. i am seriously wowed by the Specialized Tarmac and the Trek Mardone, as well as the Ibis Silk…but i couldn’t pass up this Klein frame, especially with the kooky rear elastomer!

so stay tuned to see if this frame gets a sweet setup of maybe Dura-Ace or Record; if i let it replace getting a whole new bike, then it is going to get the trick shit build.

ttfn!


giant (strike) rat invades Houston!

Filed under: humorous — bcd @ 10:42 am

today i feel like Houston became a real city…or i became a real citizen of the fourth largest city in the nation; behold, the strike rat!

strike rat!

i guess strike rats have been popping up all over the nation. since Houston doesn’t really have a unionized labor force, no wonder it has taken so long for me to see one. these guys are protesting our building management over labor, unions, and the janitorial staff. appears that Strike Rat might have some legal issues, too!

wonder how much a strike rat would cost? maybe we get an eight foot dog for outside our shop?
