While my laundry is on rinse cycle

The guy with the stuff glued onto the car "gets" it. He/she knows that in the end it just won't matter. Let's all hope that the mailman brings my latest E-bay treasure today.

Safety first

Snack time nears

Yes, the clown bike can not be held back, defined or categorized.

7:30 am is not early and roadies on the Greenway must be alert.

Debra W has me on dog escort detail today. Both dogs will be groomed by the neighborhood groomer. I have been issued a detailed set of instructions and have been told not to deviate from these instructions.

Like a cheetah

As reported on Twitter my breakfast bratwurst rolled off the plate between the kitchen and dining room and Kiah hit it like a hanging curve ball.

Out to Richfield today for coffee and hijinks.

That picture from the top of the Target Center parking ramp wasn't easy to take from my bike but what the hell I still have health insurance for now.

No Opus for me tonight as it's too cold, too far away and Fringe is on.

F-ing ninjas are everywhere.

You made it to Friday. Now, cut the bullshit with your co-workers and be happy. Your job isn't hard. Interaction with people makes it hard. You know, your mom could've had her usual headache that fateful night and dad would have just gone to sleep. Ma could have worn her good nightgown the next night and there would have been a kid but it wouldn't have been you. Follow me skippy?

Ride your bike. Throw down on Twitter and eat something delicious and everything will be ok.

Oh, it's on...

My old buddy Snakecrotch sent me this photo last night and I'm sure the statue has a gigantic schwanker. Thanks for the input son.

I'm not sure where the day is going to take us but you can bet it won't take us onto the lawn for yardwork. You can hardly tell I didn't do anything with my leaves last fall.

Collection agent for 2 dollar chip timing fee

Did you say Thor?

You gotta be able to ride through that

On the way back from lunch yesterday (Uncle Frankies Northeast) I came across this on Hennepin Ave. It would appear as if some doorknob (besides me) rode into the concrete and then had to get off his/her bike to extricate themselves. I'll call Grissom to see if he can stop by.

When you're retired you have no definition to the week except for tv shows and social engagements. It's Wednesday, huh? Don't mean nuthin to me except that Criminal Minds is on tonight and there are always some day baseball games on.

Two weeks till Black Dog starts? Not in any kind of shape for 7 miles with the pedal to the floor the whole time. I've only ridden my tt bike one time. I should really go see Jay and refit the damn thing. That's enough of this.

Morning has broken

That's a dvd on lap dancing in case you were wondering. What decent dirty book store isn't open 24 hours? Some guy got a kick out me posing my bike for a picture. I told him to have a nice day at work and to not take any shit.

It's dog walk time. Go check the break room for unclaimed freight.

Pretty quiet around here. I rode down by the U after escort detail. Wanted to see the new football stadium which is progressing along nicely. Need to go see the new Russell Crowe movie as it looks like a good one. Skibby Central: Let's try to get out this weekend for some hoops and shits and giggles with Lebron Jr.

I made us some gruel...yummy, yummy

Just getting a quick post in while my laundry finishes spin cycle, hun. It's a pretty nice day out there so you office kiddies should fake an illness and get out on your bikes. I can call your boss if you like to tell them that the garage door opener won't work or some other bullshit story to free you from the chains of THE MAN.

Funny, I don't remember going to Opus

Children should be seen and not heard.

Maybe you can identify someone you know or yourself. Either way, I don't give a shit.

All in all I had a smashing time at Opus and enjoyed sparring with my 32nd most favorite farm girl. No you can't comment. Honestly, I don't know what gets into you at times.

That's right little's time for Quitter Cookies

Opus starts it's 90th season tonight and that Tegeder has been present for all of them. Roadies finally get to use live ammo and show off their new clown suits. I too will be heading out to Minnetonka or Hopkins or wherever the hell the most God awful set of circular roads can be found.

Hey buddy, did you just see a real bright light?

Miss Debra re-joined the ranks of the commuters this morning and I served in my capacity as escort. This is the way the light looks in the parking garage where she works and it's scary as hell because it makes me think of the first Terminator movie.

I then made a short tour of downtown Minneapolis which is a short tour town anyway and now I'm back home before I add to the madness in West Richfield.

We must always remember boys and girls...retired/unemployed = not in a hurry.

Talk about a set of pipes

What is that? A radish? No thank you. Happy Easter, baby. Miss you. No wait, it could be a beet.

Oh my's already 8:30 am

I have a lot of social engagements these days and I'm waiting for Scanny to call so we can go out and squander some of his unemployment money and my severance money. Dropped off tax stuff yesterday. You wouldn't run to your tax guy either if you had payed in like 15 years in a row.

I'm living on donuts and steak

After a lovely donut meeting with the newlyweds I rode my bike to the 46th Street Station and took the train downtown to the Government Center where I renewed my driver's license.

It's cold outside but then you probably know that. Don't go outdoors unless you have to.

It's Opening Day in the Major Leagues. That's a national holiday for me.

Nice coaster, huh?

A real life situation here

Tuffy, sorry I missed your call. I keep the phone on vibrate like the "asset" in the last Bourne movie. Call during the basketball game tonight. I think even though he's a whiner Cutler can't help but improve the Bear's playoff chances. Draft choices in today's NFL are over-rated because they are based on continually finishing shitty thus improving the position of the pick. I just hope he shuts up and throws lazer beams down field.

This is Ana and she's my newest Facebook friend. It's an arranged marriage for the game Mafia Wars which is the unemployed guy's best friend. Ana is a little too skinny for my tastes. Is that a piercing with her house key? Mother used to say 'cover that chest' when you'd go outside on a really cold day. Mother would have gotten a kick out of Ana's outfit.

I've got a dog walk (neighbor's dog for money) scheduled at 9 and Mrs gets off at 1:30. A bike ride for coffee is scheduled which will be nice. Other than that...

cheeseburger, ham and a fried egg. Of course bacon would have been nice too.
