Uggggh, dear reader.

I’m drinking the tea this morning, with the caffeine in it, which means I’ll be wigged out crazy anytime now.

Sometimes when I wake up and I haven’t had enough sleep and I know it is time to get in that shower and then get on that motorcycle and then go to work, and I almost can’t do it. I lay there thinking “How. How can I get out of this?” But then I drag my ass out of bed.

And then the most important step comes in. Because when you are sleepy driving a car, you can remain sleepy and lethargic and still drive. But generally, you should be alert on a motorcycle. Generally.

So I listen to the rock and roll music this morning. I listen! This morning, I decided to go with Back in Black. This is how it goes:

I put on the album and listen to half of Hell’s Bells while my bike is warming up, and I am still waking up. This is an important step, because I need to be on the road and going before the next song comes on.

Because the next song is Shoot to Thrill, and this is my favorite AC/DC song. And because I grew up watching 80’s action movies with my Dad, this loud rock and roll song triggers a synapse in my head that says “You are rocking now, you must go faster. You must make this an action scene.”

So I go fast, and I do the weave through traffic, and it is FUN. And I’m awake. And its a little stupid. But then I remember that no matter where I’m going on my bike, even if it is to my soulless office job, I have fun doing it. While other people are worrying about having enough time to get a latte and a muffin, I am weaving in and out of traffic listening to appropriately cheesy rock. And I like it.

ANY HOO – I’m awake now, but at work which is essentially like being asleep. Except this tea is kicking in, which means I’ll probably post about 30 blog posts today. Oh, and I maaaaaaay have a source lined up for a CB160 junker. Maaaaaaaay. Too bads I be broke at the moment! Come on, economic stimulus!

all I think about AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Just so I understand — you have a vespa that you’re working on and a Honda that you’re working on. And so, what do you ride to work? I want to be very clear about this.

    Also, I’m pretty sure my asking questions like this is what earned me my divorce from the Lambretta boy I married.

    We can’t get a blog divorce, right? Because I’m not emotionally stable enough for that.

    Oh, I am always working on my Honda – but I ride that to work right now. I just rebuilt it. My Vespa is in pieces right now though. So two bikes, soon to be three, and I work on all of them because they are old… like aged cheese.

    And wait, you divorced a Lambretta boy? Totally understandable… Vespas are superior bikes. YOWCH.

    You Vespa boys with your Lambretta envy.

    I will say though, in defense of Vespa, that if I were to get a bike, I’d get a Primavera because I’m delicate and girlie.

    I drink the tea every morning. 2 cups. Except this morning because making that second cup would have meant me moving from the couch and that would have made me DIE.

    Awesome Thirteenth Warrior quote. Also, Shoot to Thrill is by far my favorite AC/DC song as well. I like to imagine Vespas doing wheelies when I hear it. But not Lambrettas, as they are for fags.

    Imagine? Let’s just DO WHEELIES while listening to Shoot to Thrill, brother!
