What a great week

Sometimes the stars just align right, and things go well. This must be one of those weeks for me. It's not that any huge has happened or anything, but it's the sum of multiple little things that are just making this week enjoyable. Things like having some good rides (without flatting or being rained on), some great dances (and kick-ass DJ'ing - thanks shanabanana), and perhaps the best unexpected running-into of someone at lunch yesterday. Not to mention today I went to Schlotzsky's Deli (I NEVER go there) and Compass Bank was there buying people lunch.

And another thing to brighten my day: Traffic stop nets $2 million in cocaine. To make a long story short, someone actually got pulled over for driving in the left lane (the PASSING lane) without passing anyone. Yeah sure, I suppose it's also newsworthy because they guy also had 40 pounds of cocaine. Don't get me started on people driving in the left lane...I'm having too good a week.

Right now, you're probably thinking "Gee, I wish I could be as cool as Ryan right now." Well, you can't, so get over it. Unless of course you're ditching work to go climbing, in which case: Screw You. :)

Bush can't ride

Twice now Bush has fallen off his bike:

As JD so eloquently put it:
"I can't in good conscience vote for a "rider" that still has reflectors and pedal straps. What was I thinking!"

Stop the insanity

So, my first post on my Live Journal and I regret that it has to be about low carb food. Say it ain't so, low carb wine: (Thanks for the link Jme). So let me get this straight, my lazy American fat-ass weight loss program now also allows me to get trashed? Sweet. Now all someone needs to do is find a way to recommend huge vats of chocolate and crystal meth for the Fatkins diet and we'll be all set. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go get some low-carb bread and pasta.

Oh, I also just saw this article from the Seattle Times (I love the title): Low-carb craze shrinks waistlines, brain cells
