I stuck a thumbtack in my neck.......just so I can feel ...something.......

On this the 5th of January 2011 my day was anything but uneventful. I had to build a pool table for a gentleman who was really difficult.  His poor English was eclipsed only by his unbelievably bad breath.  I had to call him on it, as it was obvious to him he was pushing my away  like an August  wind  blowing over a garbage dump.  He didn't have my money and at the same time wanted me to perform twice the work we had agreed to.  All because he screwed up.  I did, in fact, snap.  Just not his neck.  Then when I went to pick up Maxy, one of the children at the daycare appeared to be dead, or at least comatose.  And no one had the good sense to call 911.  For the love of God!!!!!! What are people doing ?!?!?!?

I did my number 1 training ride tonight.  Its my hard one.  I sweat like a pig , when I normally am not a sweaty guy.  Also watched 2  episodes of 30Rock.  Best show ever.  I try to watch the show and take in every nuance of Alec Baldwin's ever-underrated acting but my focus always switches to racing and picturing the attacks, breakaways, and long pulls .   Man, racing is even more addictive than BJJ.  I can't stop thinking about it.

I am looking forward to racing with the new team this March\April in the States and am hoping to come out like a Greyhound on crack at the Good Friday road race.  Much more on that as it evolves.
