Hump Day Miscellany – At’s all about Momo!

In honor of my dear friend Momo I bring you the return of Hump Day Miscellany. She said she missed it.

1). I tried the tire levers – really I did. The tire was just too tight even for them

2). McBikey canceled on our afternoon ride today (too much work) and I thought I’d use it as the perfect excuse to blow off my 90 minute ride but I didn’t. I pulled up my big girl pants (aka my bike shorts) put on my helmet and got it done. All but 6 minutes and 15 seconds but who’s counting?

3). I finally mowed the lawn today. As I live and breath, when I get a job and have an income I’m hiring someone else to do that. I don’t care that it only takes about 30 minutes – I don’t like doing it and I have a tendency to run over rocks and sticks and it makes a terrible noise and I might lose a foot or something.

4). The cat continues to require force feeding. She has shown some minor interest in eating on her own but not enough to sustain her. If anyone knows how to get a cat to start eating again please let me know!

5). We are having very oogey weather for California. It’s actually perfect running weather and it isn’t too bad for cycling but it isn’t sunny and clear by any means. More of a cloudy and windy sort of thing. I want my summer!

6). My blister is healed but I really did a number on my thumb joint. I hope it heals and I haven’t given myself a permanent case of bursitis or arthritis.

7). I have mismatched wheels on my bike – too bad. The wheels still go round and round and that’s about all I need right now. That and some more speed!

8). I love Jet Blue – I just changed my flight and it didn’t cost me a dime! Love them.

    good for you getting out there. we’re having some rain here on the east coast but it’s actually turning out to be a nice spring.

    FWIW: I don’t think changing a tire can give you arthritis. It apparently can make your thumb hurt like hell though!

    yay! its BACK! and just in time for the spelling bee. i’m sure miscellany is one of the words, don’t you think??

    way to get that ride done, that lawn mowed, that cat fed and that flight changed. you’re busy! 🙂

    can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!

    a) yay for Hump Day Miscellany! and kudos to momo for inspiring it.

    b) go you! good job on the bike ride (and boo! for sore thumbs and hard to replace tires)

    c) wait — I thought you were working again?
    I get an odd satisfaction out of mowing lawns. maybe one of these days I’ll come across the bay and help you out 🙂 — otherwise, hiring someone is a very good plan!

    d)I’ve been wondering how your cat was faring — have you tried baby food, or boiled chicken, or parmesan cheese?

    I snapped four–count’em FOUR–tire levers trying to wrestle with my zipps. Finally got these ginourmous, yellow tire levers on growth hormone, and those seem to work, but now I can’t get the f-ing valves and vale extenders to hold air in the tubes. I feel completely impotent.
