A Call To My Fellow Riders

Who's up for an evening ride tonight?

It is time to dust off the bikes and get them tuned up!!

Every day this week, and part of last week, I have been riding my bike. I have more of a challenge riding this year, as I'm carrying extra weight this time. No, it's not that extra scoop of chocolate raspberry truffle ice cream I've been having, it's little miss Avery and her bike seat. Between her and the seat, I'm schlepping an extra 30-35 pounds on my bike.

So here's the deal. Anyone of the locals who wants to start biking again, let's start today. If you have nothing else going on, now is as good a time as any. I'd personally like to go to the riverwalk this evening, but there's plenty of space to ride closer to our house.

I'm planning on being ready to go by 5:30-6PM this evening, as the Ballistic Princess knows that this is optimim biking time. If anyone needs to tune up their bike, feel free to do it here at our house. We can ride here or go down to the riverwalk. Either way, I'm biking and going from now on everyday.

Damien and I can fit Avery's carseat in the truck I think, and the truck can handle at least four bikes if we tried hard enough.

There is a Christian church that has published a full page article (San Jose Mercury News) saying that they were doing a "survey" to determine how much the community supports gay marriage. They are going to publish slanted results in another full page ad. This is an obvious attempt to publish a skewed representation of community sentiment. WE SHOULD ALL VOTE IN THIS SURVEY. Please take a moment to fill out their survey, it is only 8 questions with yes/no answers. Take the survey here.

If you are so inclined, you may also call them at 408-262-0900.

As per my last post in the gay_marriage community, someone else is starting crap with me. His last post really yanked my chain, though. View the thread here, and be ready to read some unbelievable shit. And I quote, from a community member "I fully support the Klan so long as they don't trespass or harm people." Um, what the hell is THAT in a community that supports the right to equality and decries discrimination? This one, I swear...

Ridiculous. party of 4?

Nathan: I want that computer mouse that has the red light under it instead of the ball, like the one I have at work. You don't even have to use a mousepad. What's that called?
Damien: An optical mouse?
Nathan: YEAH! An optical mouse. Anyway, I want one of those.
Me: ::humming the tune to "Shaft":: Whoooo is the moooouuuse that's so bad he don't need a mouse pad? OPTICAL!! Daaaaaaaamn right. That optical mouse is a bad mother...
Maggie: Shut yo mouse!
Me: I'm just talkin' 'bout optical mouse!
