tonight is cold

today someone very important to me left on a journey. i learned that letting go is truly the hardest thing you can ever do. i still can’t do it. i miss her deeply.

and i’m not sure what to do right now.

things i do know:

there are some big changes coming up for me soon. some i can talk about here, most i can’t. patience for me, patience for you.

there is not enough time on this earth for not saying what you feel, and doing something about it.

nothing compares

i’ll return to this soon – i have a few projects in mind.

fly safely

Won’t be any posts for quite a few days, dealing with other things.

Enjoy that long weekend!

cat time!

From the Medieval Cattery.

I’m going to get a cat. One way or another.. like Blondie.

But you should never buy a cat, please adopt a cat. I’ll adopt a cat.

Hummus Factory Mania v.2


That’s enough melancholy for a lifetime, thank you very much. Remember the “new” Smashing Pumpkins record? I don’t! It is probably somewhere in my room.

Just got back from the Hummus Factory for long overdue lunch with Lindsey. She is… wonderful.

A little more on my bike, if you are interested.

I’ll have to do a complete top-end rebuild on it, I’m guessing in a couple weeks. This will be daunting, but I don’t think it will be all together that tough. I just don’t want to mess something up since I’ll be working with the most important parts of the engine. After the top-end rebuild, I should have my speed back and the idle should be be smoothed out.

OR – I could use the opportunity to do a little tuning and make the bike ever faster. Like using these pistons from Bore-Tech.

Goodness gracious, wouldn’t these zippy pistons do well for my reliability and speed, especially if this particular motorcycle might be taking quite a long trip in the next few months? Like, up north? Hmmmmm.

Anyway! This weekend will go down in history. Tonight, I am going to a going-away party and I’d like to work on my bike a little. Time is tight.

half a world away

i played pool. i won three games, lost the rest.

my motorcycle’s right piston has crummy compression. i did tests and it looks like the piston rings are worn. this is a major project, and i worry about my motorcycle. it will be good. join me in the overhaul.

i enjoy my friends, my family.

this is nice

things aren’t nice.

but this is.

They are called “Tallulah” and they are pretty great. I heard them listening to an old episode of “This American Life,” which I am known to do.

They are a nice mix of female vocals and harmonies – “Untied” is nice, and so is “Bacon.”

I love bacon.

I’ll order this CD, and listen to it.

Listening party.

of one.

With bacon, on vanilla ice cream.
