A stream of con-science

Man, I really do have a hard time saying, or typing, what's on my mind. For the past three days I've sat down in front of this thing and drawn a blank. I know there's thoughts in there, they just don't want to come out. Maybe it's just a pressure issue. I need to build up some mental steam before it gets to the point that I can put it down or spit it out. Even today it took some serious caffination to push the rocks out of the way. Or maybe I'm finally warming back up from the sloth of vacation. Or maybe it's this...or maybe it's that...

Whatever. This is some good coffee though. Methinks it's the Pure Alchemy blend. Says "cyclocross mud" on the bag cuz I bought it at Natz.

Ah, I remembered what got me on this. So I called in sick today and watching the daily show got me thinking that the show is presented as a stream of consciousness in the form of a media critique (at least today). Of course it's not the conscience of a single person, but it comes across like John S's thoughts. So the part of my brain that emits envy chemicals turned on and said "Dude, you think like that sometimes-why not say it too?" And I said back to it "I dunno, I just don't. Who would want to listen to that anyways." The envy brain replied "Well millions of people watch this show every day." "Hmm," I said, "maybe this would be good for the dete."

And here we are. Baby steps, I guess. I'll probably look back on this some day, and feel like I'm reading an expos 101 paper on why styrofoam containers are bad for the environment. I was probably listening to this cd then too.

Well, as for latest developments, there's not much to report. Did some wicket long rides with Sweater Toddd and zee gzerman last week. Squirrely ass Whyland showed up once too. ST was still holding some year-old grudge about how SaW commented that the HPH rides were "powder puff rides". So, of course, we rode accordingly. No one seemed to mind last time I stopped for a manicure and a moustache wax in Princeton...What's the big deal?

Oh, and if anyone knows a shop in or near Boulder that needs a wrench/lackey/gimp let me know.

Same goes for any colleges that need a safety guy.

Crunch time approaches.
