It's been fun. It's been real. But riding bikes has become too trendy for my taste.
The whole reason I started riding was to be doing something different. I built up my bike from scratch and it was once something to be proud of. Fancy boy store bought bikes like Gary Fischers are putting my pride and joy to shame. Almost everyone in my neck of the woods has one, even if its not their main ride. And there deffinately isnt a "ooooh a bike!" factor anymore. No more challenge of trying to keep up with everyone on group rides, because everyone is on a freaking bike.

In my opinoin, it's just not cool anymore. After three years of riding bikes, I am starting to hold bikes in the same regard as I do the yellow Armstrong wrist bands.

In addition, I see more and more people commuting on them, kids riding bmx bikes in the neighborhood and roadies hanging out at Starbucks. They're everywhere! How am I supposed to get noticed if I'm just another schmoe on two wheels? As soon as I log off I'm headed to the Ford dealership to look at the new Expeditions. Those look pretty sweet. Next time you guys see me I'll be blowing you off the road with my 2 tons of American steel, b!tches.

PS - I think Zap shares my sentiment towards bikers in general as well.

PPS - spelling's hard!

Scrapbooking...

I'm gonna start screapbooking from now on. I hear that's what milfs are into now.

I shuld just donate my bikes to the local bums and not even look back...

Scrapbooking's where its at. All I need are some crayons, pictures of nonsense, scissors, a blank scrapbook from the craft store. Craft Store you hear! Barns & Noble is a sellout now.

I wonder if I can get me an eccentric scrap bppk with a titanium binder...

Hoo wheee! Too funny (but painfully so). My sister-in-law from Sun Prairie is way into "scrap."

"Scrap"..."scrap"..."scrap." "Do you ladies want to come over to my house friday evening to "scrap?"

Dammit! I've said "scrap" so many times now that doesn't even look or sound like a real word!

Do you think if I showed up at a scrap party with a pile of porn artfully formatted into scrapbooks with glitter and stickers....that it would turn into a big Milf hunt sextravaganza party? That would be cool....but I still would have to take breaks from steamy milf scrapping to ride my bike.
