Slow boat back to normal

Been a week, had some steak and whiskey tonite. It helped.  The mint was even from our garden plot.  Thumbs up to local drinking.
Not helping is having not heard back from Trek confirming my info to submit to insurance.  Not a good way to convince me to replace what was taken with a similar bike.

Last Friday I ended the week with a beer and 5 Templetons at Pippins after work.  It made for a good start to the holiday weekend.  Won't be surprised if tomorrow ends in similar fashion.

Current beer-scale: 6.7


Ice in my stomach

So I went to take the boy to daycare this morning to find the gate to our yard open and the garage door open as well.  Not liking that, I handed him off and went to check it out.  Turns out my madone was gone, and so was the wife's mountain bike.

Let me just say a big FUCK YOU to whomever took them.  It's not going to help if I get overly worked up, and things could've been much worse, but if you steal a bike you deserve horrible things in the afterlife. 

Current beer-scale: 9.7


biking to blogging

My ride to post ratio is pretty strong right now.  It's perfect out in Chicago, who has time to blog about it when you should be outside.  Save it for a crappy day.

Current beer-scale: 8.1 & thank god b/c it's patio season.


And that's why

I convinced the wife to add mint to her gardening project.  Even though it grows crazy like a weed.
I do believe I will be trying this drink in mass quantities in the very near future.

Current beer-scale: a 8.9 and climbing less than 24 hours before commencement.


Business drink

Instead of 'drunk.'  Nice.
#2 in a series
Tonite is one of my favorite rides of the year, home in the late evening after a late event that has a high end bar.  A perfect storm of some of my favorite things.  Doesn't quite make getting through graduation any easier, but a few drinks never hurt.
