Day 2. I hate landscapes, but this is a good excercise.

I went to the bank and pre-qualified for a mortgage. The lady told me I was a "good little saver". I was afraid she was going to pat me on my head, but she didn't. Instead, i took a piece of candy out of the bowl on her head.

After life drawing, I met my friend Katie to retrieve bigfoot, my carpet shampooer which she had borrowed. She made me a christmas present, the scarf pictured in this orange picture. I like scarfs because they make my neck look un giraffe like.

After dinner I was dropping her off at her car. "I have some orange citrus stuff. I can spray it in your truck if you want. It's sort of stinky.", she informed me.

It is sort of stinky, but that's for another day. Two more days of work and then I am on Holiday vacation until January third.

Yes! Fed ex anticipation is SO worth it. Spending lots of money gives me diahrrea, but as soon as I plugged this in and hit the first note I instantly knew that it was worth it.

Now. Overheard in my house:

The lightbulbs in my bathroom are burned out. We don't have any spares. I had to poop in the dark. It was eerie.

Check out this gem from the local hometown paper. I'm out of touch, you know. I had forgotten that after first frost it's huntin' season. Notice the ad at the bottom. Go ahead, click on the picture now and make it big. Then you can come back and we'll talk some more.

Ok. Did you notice? It says under new ownership.

Buck's & Jake's. Under new ownership. It seems Buck and Jake got lucky. They found two guys named Buck and Jake to buy their business. God truly works miracles.


That shit is priceless.

I would like a picture of myself holding an animal in much the same fashion, you know, like I just slayed it. Except I would want it to be an animal not associated with hunting. Maybe like a cow, or a hippopotamus.

That would make a great twisted painting.

Once upon a time I lived in the great white north. 3 feet of snow was common place. Death fell upon those who left there homes with less than 4 layers. Many weekends were spent riding lifts to mountain tops and hurling myself back to earth upon a board.

Now I'm in the lone star state and temp has dropped to 30. Only now do I realize now that I have become a puss. Today I worried about road conditions. This is truly a first. Luckily, my volleyball game was cancelled and I do not have to venture out of my domicile.

Instead, I just ordered my christmas present to myself.
A repro 1952 fender telecaster. Oh yes.

Some times you have to treat yourself.

I never get good finds, you know, shit you find. PS I recommend found magazine as a christmas gift for your quirky loved ones. Anyway. I woke up this morning. TB has a new habit of turning of the heat at night, so it was balls cold up in here. Cold mornings are like kryptonite for me, renderring me lazy. So, instead of going to work, I worked from the couch. After I was warmed up I ran some errands, but since it is 50 here today, I needed jacket. Our closet is kind of funny. Nothing is hung up in it. Mostly, everything is just thrown on the ground. It makes me chuckle. At the bottom of the pile was a jacket I had bought like 7 years ago when I lived in Roanoke, VA (shithole).

My first stop was at the cleaners to pick up my laundry. I reached into my jacket pocket scored this polaroid. I have no idea what it is, or how it came to be in my jacket, but nonetheless, it is rad.

I'm going to eat strawberry ice cream now. (for supper)

Life drawing. Yeah, the boobs are different sizes. Some douche moved in front me and I had to improvise.

Being the sort of guy who likes to try out new things, I had always heard of the veloway in Austin. It's a paved bike bath that I had been wanting to check out. I woke up early Saturday morning and felt like I needed a little exercise. It was rapidly approaching 80 degrees and I felt it would be the perfect day for some BMX action.

About that time Evan walked by, "Wanna go for a bike ride? I heard about a cool place." It only took about 30 minutes clear enough trash out of my SUV to make way for the bikes. After that, it was a sweet 40 minute drive south. As we pulled into the entrance of the park, immediately, I knew the situation was about to turn wierd. Professional looking bicyclers were strew about the parking lot performing stretches and tuning up the $3000 dollar tour de france style bikes. Evan shot me a look that said, "Your a dick.".

We pulled the BMX's out of the SUV and quickly got on the path. Evan was decked out in standard attire, torn jeans, long sleeved shirt, and a baseball cap. I was kicking some cut off camo shorts that are too big and I couldn't find a belt, so my butt crack was showing.

Lance Armstrong clones began lapping us. After all, they had all the pro gear. Lots of spandex, nice bikes, those thin little water packs. Hell, they even wore helmets. We looked like a couple of dorks.

To make matters worse, our single gear bmx's aren't so great for the steep inclines. Three quarters of the way through we were thoroughly exhausted and laughing so hard we could no longer ride. It was the epitamy of ridiculousness.

That's if for the veloway. I'm going to stick to trying to ride wheelies around the block.
