So...Saturday I was feeling rather slug like and I realized that I hadn't really done anything physical all day. So at 5PM I hoisted my butt off the couch and headed out on an adventure. You see since I got my beautiful bike, I've been wanting to get proper biking shoes with cleats to increase the pwer of my rides. I've also been needing a new pair of sunglasses since mine were stolen in Paris. I got a crap pair to replace them but I really hate those and wanted a proper pair.
So....at 5PM as I said I hoisted my butt off the couch and relinquished the Olympics to the couch potatoes and walked a mile or so to the sunglass shop where I got myself a great new pair of wraps. Then it was onto the subway for a ride downtown to Soho and REI! There a very nice oke educated me all about biking shoes and cleats and such. After trying on a half dozen pairs or so, I settled on one that I really liked and got the right cleats for the bike and off I went, re-energized to try out all the new gear when I got home!
Subway back up town, go home, open the cleats, grab a sneaker, and realize that I don't have an Allen wrench to fit. UGH! OK at least I can bike with the new shoes!. They were SO much better fitting in the cage! Heaven!
So Sunday I went to the gym early to get in my wog, and after I swung by Home Depot and picked up an Allen wrench set. Gotta love Home Depot!! Then it was home to sort my shoes so I could finally bike with cleats!
WRONG!!!! The shoes I got came with a shim as the cleat bed is recessed. And guess what......the bolts aren't long enough to reach the screw base! OY! Thank the gods for Google, b/c all I had to do was type in long bolts for bike cleats and I knew everything there was on the topic including where to get the longer bolts! WHICH hopefully are on their way to me and will be here by the end of the week!!
On some other fronts, I've been trying out the free test run of Spark Coach. I've not made up my mind about it yet. I do like the video and the visualization, they tend to keep me focused thruout the day. Work is work, that doesn't change. I really have to get serious about finding a new gig!
Then there's the dating front....I've been seeing this guy for a bit now. But he has a really bad habit of waiting til like Friday to ask me out for the weekend. HELLO! If he knows he wants to see me, then sort it out at the beginning of the week b/c I'm not waiting around for him to do it and WILL make other plans!! So Friday when he'd pulled this nonsense AGAIN, I already had plans to see the Best Man on Broadway Friday night, and had plans with friends on Saturday. So we made tentative plans for Sunday or Monday. 6:30 Sunday night he calls and says "I've been looking over my To Do list and don't think I'll have time to see you before I go off sailing on Tuesday." Really....He did NOT just relegate me to an item on his to do list AND expect to ever hope to spend time with me again DID he??? Pffft!!! NOT!!!
So that's all the news that's fit to print and otherwise.....
