Message That Made Me Smile Yesterday

Um, hi. this is Matt from your local bike shop, and, well, I think your bike's rear wheel needs its bearings replaced. It's probably gonna cost another $25. Just give us a call and let us know if it's OK to go ahead. (pause) Looks like this bike's got a LOT of miles on it.

Yes, yes it does.


Steve S.

May I say, for having all those miles on her, Louise is looking pretty fine!


In Texas, we would describe your bike as "rode hard and put away wet." Poor little philly.


Greyhound - my brother says that ALL the time! I just thought it was a gross brother thing to say, not an entire state!


I think that's a pretty cool compliment. I'm ashamed to say nobody's EVER said that about my bike!


D'ja get those mild-dud bearings cleaned up?

Lance Notstrong

Tell him it's an "Iron" bike :-)


Somehow, the shadow lingered over us all.. Pike as he took his seat opposite him.. Let us now try to correct some views which might be erroneously formed as long as we regarded the two systems in the crudest and most obvious sense as two localities within the psychic apparatus, views which have left their traces in the terms repression and penetration.. It is a most agreeable coincidence.. In this connection, I cannot get away from the thought that I regret this disbursement.. I arose with a shining pate, wigless; she in disdain and wrath, half-buried in alien hair.. Never mind the card; tell 'em, he urged. But she did not succeed in freeing herself from the inclination for her sister's friend in which she had become involved.. That will be enough, answered the other with a smile.. For a moment the elder gazed up into the sky, half impressed with the idea that the camp-meeting platform had given way.. Here they are, gentlemen, said he of the hammer, the most valuable lots ever offered for sale.. Both are unconscious in the psychological sense; but in our sense the first, which we call Unc.. Will you pe take de odder pottle, or 'ave you pe got zober yet, and come to your zenzes? I made haste, hereupon, to nod my head twice--once in the negative, meaning thereby that I would prefer not taking the other bottle at present; and once in the affirmative, intending thus to imply that I was sober and had positively come to my senses.. Let us hope that his business activities will not keep him too much away from the production of literature--for to rank as a piece of literature, something of permanent literary value, Gideon is surely entitled.. But thought of how this would sound in face of the facts, the painful realization that they dared not say it because they had not said it, locked their lips.. Then--I say--these here new folk that you 'n' your wife seem so mighty taken up with--d'ye know anything about 'em? I know nothing about the character of your boarders, Mr. Midnight found him sprawled asleep beside his fire.. This easy and regularly occurring deviation of the psychic process from the former painful memory presents to us the model and the first example of psychic repression.. In that vague hope, he had arranged a movement for a general organization of the human family into Debating Clubs, County Societies, State Unions, etc.. He keeps repeating to himself, This is the right thing, it is working, my feet are beginning to dissolve and my knees are getting soft...


What the...that was some weird spam comment there.

Hey Pharmie! Race numbers are up!


There is another rode hard comment but it is naughty!

Get your number yet?


What's up with that weird comment?

Great message! I got something similar when I dropped my bike off to be tuned up. They said it was too new to need that extensive of a tune-up, then looked at the mileage on my odometer and changed their oppinion.

I definitely want to meet up with you and Steve in Madison!


Came across your Blog and wanted to say good luck this weekend. Cant wait to read about your race report. We will be in Madison cheering you all in Sunday and hope to sign up for IMWI 2008 Monday. Have a great race! Kat~


I thought that was the naughty one, but I have a warped mind ;)

Well, here we go again eh? Can't wait to see you :)
