I can talk to animals. Well not talk to 'em. I can take commands from them.

  1. I had to work today.  I was in a customers house working on their pool table .  The guy smoked non stop while I was there.  He asked me if I smoked, possibly to gauge whether or not I would like one. As it turned out he cared not for me and continued to light 'em up.  Then his smokey buddy came over and joined him.  I think I have cancer.  Or something.

B) Went to my good friend David Atkinson's (The David Atkinson) today as well.  David rides a souped up Team Machine and has a Look KX Light.  He also paints really cool  things.  He is one of my coolest friends.  Who is also a little odd, maybe a bit crazy, but always in a pretty reasonable , easy to understand and agree with sort of way.    I hope he gets his website up soon displaying all the wicked paintings he makes of all things PRO cycling.   I also eat some weird food when I am there.  Sometimes delicious, always healthful.  Today was no different.  Some sort of seaweed wrap containing shredded carrot, shredded beet, and sliced peppers .  All to be dipped liberally in an expensive organic soy sauce.  As C. Montgomery Burns once said- "I know what I hate, and I don't hate this."  But I wouldn't go as far as to make it myself.  Some variation with less beet, more rice, and a sliver of Habanero instead of regular pepper would set my soul nicely ablaze.

I got my training schedule for the next week from my coaching department today.  Holy shit, what am training for the Giro?  Oh yeah, Provincials, Nationals, Worlds.  And then Crank the Shield.  Boom!  she says.

Gotta make sure I get some new race videos for the week. I've never seen 2010 Ghent-Wevelgem.

I need some more pineapple.
