Shoot me if you see me in a tie

As much as I wanted to briefly discuss the upcoming speech at the University of Cairo, not within the predictable context of Islam and future relations with the Muslim world but more as it pertains to intervals, spastic weight-loss and blue crotchless pantaloons, but more about Obama's announcement that Rush Limbaugh is in fact in the pockets of the paper plate industry. There is no more proof needed than these quotes from Rush himself:

"The most beautiful thing about a tree is what you do after you cut it down. There is nothing more satisfying than eating a properly cooked animal served on a magnificent tree."

"We have more trees in this country today than when the Declaration of Independence was written, which means we have more paper plates in the National Paper Plate Reserve than ever."

"I think this reason why girls don't do well on multiple choice tests goes all the way back to the Bible, all the way back to Genesis, Adam and Eve. God said "All right Eve, paper plates or reusable Melamine?"

Rush Limbaugh is big and fat, but he certainly is no idiot. If the paper plate industry was financing my OxyContin and hydrocodon addiction then I would say some crazy shit too.


I've been working on getting my bike squared away before the Dauphiné Libéré of the Bad Idea Racing season, The Cowbell Challenge Marathon.

Will Bolt put a shiny new Crank Brothers bottom bracket in my hands, and within hours it was nice and cozy in my bottom bracket shell. All my moving parts that were toasted at the DSG mudfest are now fully operable.

My important work had to be put aside to help The Boy do some maintenance on our workhorse adult tricycle. The Boy is apparently practicing for his future role on the reality series COPS.

Back to work on the Meatplow I've made some changes for my ride this weekend.

I'll be trying out some different grips. The foamies have been pitched aside at the moment, and I'm gonna try these Salsa Pepper grips for reasons I'll get into later regardless of whether it's a failure or not. Also, I mounted up a Salsa 473 A-C/43mm rake fork for shits and giggles. The smarter of you folks could probably venture a guess, but I'd be willing to bet the smarter of you folks stopped reading a coupla minutes ago.

The best thing about my job?

Not everything that matters in the "real world" matters in mine.

Morning weight report:

7.9% BF**

* I continue to remain very stagnant at this very non-satisfactory weight.

** You can still see the discrepancy in the fat % numbers as I've had 8.6%, 7.8%, 8.9%, and 7.9% all at the exact same weight over the last four days. Quadruple meh.

Fat % on the digital scales are pretty bogus, I refuse to believe my numbers.

Nice grips, try ESIs sometime...

Anon 9:24 again:
Dicky stirring the pot of H8.
Just pass the peace pipe and accept that like other plants, trees are a renewable resorce.

Oh yeah, and the greenest people who ever lived in America, the Indians, cut down trees and ate animals on them.

When did mtbers become such an intolerant bunch? We are starting to sound like a bunch of roadies.

I've been following your blog for some time now. I've always wondered why you ride a rigid singlespeed instead of something more comfortable. I know now. There's too much other stuff to fiddle with on something with full squish. You fiddle with your set up more than 10 people. Just imagine if you had all the other little goodies to monkey around with. You'd have to quit your job!

Actually anon 9:24 (if that is your real name) it was just a slow morning at the blog, so I thought I would just cannibalize a little Rush.

Tomorrow will be plate free and totally environmentally ambivalent.

You need to show that beautiful Moots more respect than to put that crap on it.

thank you for validating my most intrepid thought by accommodating such heady conversation in your social netwad site.

interestingly enough keyboard cat (who now weighs in at a scat 133 lbs with 62% bf) has also taken up politicking...perhaps it is the caloric restriction that causes you both to wax so prolific?

KC released this video only a short time after being voted a PATRIOT by O'Really.

clearly his allegiance is as steadfast as a Genuine Dicky Product Seal of Semi-Approval.

I also have a scale with BF reading. I went out last night and had a bunch of pizza and a beer and once back at home saw a new low on the BF %! Just a heads up if you are trying to get your numbers down. Pizza and beer do the trick.

The weight, on the other hand, might go up instead.

^haha! that dude has a scale with a boy friend reading....

where's that post of the boyz with carbon fiber...

richy boy, your gonna get too skinny. They won't let yah play with us anymore cause you'll float away.
You now weight as much as the gf does.

You can be my little bitch cake!

I still like beef.
Are you eating beef?

BF - does that stand for bring on the fat?
Yum, ain't nothing like a greasy old burger with fat running out of it.
As it drips onto my nipples!

ok, ok... I'll stop before some of the audience gets a pipe on.

I still think that Rush L sticks bannas up his ass then gets hamsters to chase them down.

Why do married men wear ties? It looks better then the leash.
