Ok, I couldn't ride the harley to work today because I had to go pick up the new ski boat from the dealer... It was a perfect day too... 70 degrees and no wind... so to make up for not riding the motorcycle, I took the Cervelo for a ride, but my garmin was dead, so I have no idea how far or how efficient I was...

I didn't fly Malaysian.....And I don't think the budget hoppers have enough fuel on board for a free trip to Antarctica.

Damn......I've had a Harley, a new ski boat, and a Cervelo......but never at the same time....that's strong work.

someone at work was recently complaining that they have to drive an hour to get to the dealer to get work done on their car ...because that is the nearest porsche dealership.

At a fancy beach resort with first world prices, so it's a first world problem. When I checked in, for some reason the basic double room that I booked was upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite with four bathrooms, three levels, a kitchen/dining room big enough to host a banquet for 10 people, a giant deck with another large table, loungers, and a plunge pool. Problem? I keep misplacing stuff because it's just too darn big for one person. And we all know how much STUFF a triathlon involves! Yesterday I misplaced the key and spent an hour before finding it in the upstairs bathroom.

This is quite good!

Edited to reflect race results:

AWESOME RACE HR! 

WooHoo, 2nd AG, 3rd OA!

my in-laws aren't going to have as much free time as they would like this summer because they are having their "closet guy" re-do the closets in their mountain house.

i don't even know how i didn't roll my eyes at them at lunch today.

I should put some distinguishing stickers on my car. It's really hard to find my silver Prius in the Whole Foods parking lot.

There aren't enough happy faces around.
Having to see people with mean faces stinks.
Is life really that bad? All the time??
Life's too short to walk around looking like you're constipated.

Our country club just opened this past Wednesday. I wanted to maybe get a quick 9 in Saturday, but we had a hail storm that damaged the greens. They are now closed until Wednesday. My only other options are public courses.

I work at a multi-campus university.  My "official" work email address was automatically assigned to an email address that didn't exist so I wasn't getting announcements from the main HR office or messages from the president of the university where I work.  Finally got it fixed and now I'm getting announcements from another campus. 

My cat just had expensive surgery and I was worried that my bank card limit would be too low to pay for it and I'd have to use a credit card.

It's been a rough week.

My credit card company came out with a "Platinum" card which everyone else already has. I have to wait two more weeks to get mine. Until then I have to use my cruddy gold card. Sheesh!!

For most people, there is a story in how they came to the sport as beginners. Some of the most inspiring of those beginner tales begin with health scares.
