That Husite sure knew how to write a diary entry.

Nothing related follows. Well, mostly nothing related.

Or perhaps it's more accurate to see that I feel like I've caught a cold.

Print Story Say what you want about movies from the 30s and 40s but the fight scenes are crap
By lm (Tue Jul 24, 2018 at 06:18:56 AM EST) (all tags)
Apparently I've had The Maltese Falcon on my DVR for over a year.

Fortunately it doesn't really have many fight scenes, just a couple where one guy or the other gets sucker punched and the like.

And that Sam Spade guy sure wasn't cut out for the #MeToo generation. Some of his scenes were downright rapey.

Print Story Boring stuff

It takes a certain talent to turn coming close to dying into a boring tale.

And other random stuff and things and knick a brick and bric a brak.

Print Story Don't like the look of this old town, what goes up must come down
By lm (Sun May 20, 2018 at 03:38:35 PM EST) (all tags)
... Character is lost and found, on unfamiliar playing ground

Or, to mix the streams,

When you're down, it's a long way up.
When you're up, it's a long way down.

It’s all the same thing.

Completely irrelevant, I’m typing this in a text editor open next to a window that has a timeline that mentions the Maccabean Revolt and the Bar Kochba Rebellion. Neither has anything to do with this diary.

Print Story First group ride of the season was yesterday
By lm (Sun Mar 11, 2018 at 10:21:39 AM EST) (all tags)
... a short 25 miler with lots of hills (1300 feet f climing).

I showed up on Covfefe, my commuter with fenders, in sweatpants and mountain bike sandals while everyone else was full spandex dork and riding their racing bikes.

Note to riders: you will dust almost everyone riding an 11/25 or 11/28 going up the hills if you have an 11/32 on back. And you will dust almost everyone going down hills if you're a fat bastard.

Mostly unrelated random anecdotes follow.

Something for everyone who is bored.
