Until tonight I hadn't posted anything since the beginning of May. I had a few thoughts that I jotted down, thinking they might make good blog fodder, but I just could never quite get motivated to actually write. I guess that's why I haven't ever published any books either.
Amusing anecdote. Listening to Crowder the other day (highly recommend, by the way) and he mentioned the rich folk who hypocritically push for higher taxes then shelter their money in a tax haven like Ireland.
He mentioned Bono.
I really wanted to contact him to let him know that Bono, rather than being a hypocrite, might have his money in Ireland because, well, he's Irish.
But since I listen to podcasts weeks later it wasn't really timely so I let it go.
Painful anecdote. Bicycled twenty miles on my mountain bike the other day. Just about killed my knees. I don't think mountain bikes are really designed for riding twenty miles of street. Way too short, knees too bent. Now I have to fix up my street bike. Which won't be cheap as so much stuff is rusted solid: spokes, cables included.
Ongoing project anecdote. Spent a bit of time on the Fatboy rebuild. Thinking that it might be nice to get it done prior to the four year anniversary of the event. Either the front exhaust pipe is bent or the front right floorboard (what I like to call the "passenger" side and then people look at me funny) is bent. I have no way to tell which unless I can find someone with an old Fatboy to set side by side with mine. Hmmm. If only I knew someone with a Harley shop.
Expensive anecdote. Thought about buying an old Norton Commando. Just seems like it would be cool. Probably would be more cool if I lived somewhere where I could ride it all year round and lived in town so I could run errands on it instead of having to get on the stupid freeway and ride twenty minutes to do all my "quick" errands. Maybe somewhere like Santa Barbara. Maybe I could pretend to be a psychic and open up a detective agency. No, that would be stupid. I just want an old Commando. Instead I guess I'll try to get my other two bikes running and just have too many bikes that way.
