I snuck out this afternoon for a workout Boulder Colorado style; no, I didn't tuck my iPhone headphones into my plaid button down, untuck from my designer jeans and don some "foot-gloves" for a power walk to the nearest food truck for some jalapeno bites - that would be the IT-Software Engineer workout. Instead I did the Colorado CX workout; cranked the heat up to 92 degrees, pumped my tires up to 60psi and went to Valmont bike park to practice two-wheel drifting in the marbles. At least it's always easy to pick out which part of the workout involved stair intervals.

I wish that if the guy from down the hall was going to "fake-wash" his hands in the bathroom... that he would at least put in the effort to also "fake-dry" them too. Or just man-up and admit that you didn't wash your hands. Me, my policy is to wash my hands BEFORE I use the bathroom. I mean I know where my junk has been, but I walk around all day shaking other peoples hands or using disgusting door knobs and such; I'd rather make sure I had clean hands before touching ME - that should take care of people wanting to shake my hand. I love my commute to work, dropping off the side of the mountain on a twisty descent in brisk morning air usually means I don't need as much coffee once I get in. But that usually doesn't make me not drink coffee.

I'd argue that I hate shortening days and the signs of a departing summertime. About the only thing that eases the pain, ever so slightly, is that the changing seasons will at least bring cyclcocross season. And I'm really, really looking forward to getting my hands on our new weapon this year!! A quick sneak-peak for you!

I'm just going to pretend like I never left... Here we are in the middle of summer. Summer always reminds me of being a kid, off from school, and nothing to do but get up late, watch a couple cartoons during breakfast and then heading outside to cause all sorts of issues for the rest of the day. Now I come to work and stare at 50 diaganol inches of computer screen and repress my urge to yell at people and point out (with evidence) how schockingly stupid they are. Oh, how times have changed. At least I had a short break recently, which was none too soon, and an AMAZING surprise from the wifey. Out of nowhere, she shocked me with a fully planned trip to St. John, where I believe my soul may actually reside (with or without me). One of the best parts was that I only had two weeks to prepare, and it meant not being tortured for months on end waiting for the departure date! This time we stayed in Chocolate Hole, and the view from our house wasn't quite a spectacular, but I sure wasn't complaining (plus the house had some other benefits over the last one...)!!

Another sweet model for the Star Wars cabinet; Seb helped me build the B-Wing Fighter just before we left to spend xmas in Myrtle Beach.
