i bought a plane ticket to LA yesterday.
i not only avoided a parking ticket this morning, but the ticket i avoided was already written and on my car. win.
i want a museum in my life. it sounds amazing... i'm down to spend hours wandering around in the quiet.

made an absolute idiot of myself saturday night in two phases, one at nick's and then at kilroy's. among other things, i called hank patches ALLLLL night. what? why? i don't know.

woke up late to pick sarah up for louisville (alarm set for 7.01 pm instead of 7.01 am.) but we got there, and just in time for erik's race.

a good day spent with good people, after all was said and done. evidence:

the best thing to come of my trip to bean blossom bottoms earlier today:

i look awkward in all the rest.
i like going there. especially now.
i feel a little older every day.
*i got mildly excited when i walked into bed bath and beyond (for ABSOLUTELY no reason. and don't worry, i bought nothing. pillows were too expensive).
*i'm planning vacations around a work schedule and with friends... like when everyone decides to get together in vegas or something, byrnsie and i are getting together in LA.
*thinking ahead
*the fact that i want a week just to do NOTHING. (i've never been very good at that; i'm always moving and always wanting to do exciting things)
*getting a new job with a job title that isn't self-explanatory (i'm a "residential coordinator" for the youth services bureau)
*mailing wine as a gift for a birthday.

i should have done the hilly today; i just didn't feel like it. i didn't really have anyone to go out with anyway.
erik won his race today! wish i could have been there, but i'll be there in l-ville tomorrow.
long ride today. it felt good.
life right now is amazing. but it's also lacking something. i'm lacking close friends. i like that i can see everyone and go take trips to them, but i'm achy for some friends i can see every day.

angie's birthday week continues tonight with her parentals. oh man i'm excited! 

i'm going to take some photos. of myself, quite obviously.
i also decided that i'm going to do something i've never done every day this week. i'm stoked.

last night was the best night ever.
that is all.

yesterday i flexed the "pictures of children" muscle that i'm not very good at. i got a few good ones.

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

i'm snuffly. it's a bad sign.
also, i need to start updating more than once a week, this is getting ridiculous.

blooming cross was this weekend, with good results all around. my bf erik took home 2nd, fred and pam both went home with wins. yet another great thing about bloomington...those cutters superfans that are always out to support. they (and good racin) made for a great sunday:

with the finish at upland and a bonfire, for the win.
yesterday was a day, phew.
got a ride in. got snuffly. went to work. got sad. and then got to finish the day in the best way.

i hate tv. i don't want to watch it anymore. i don't really ever anymore anyway. but i have more lately and i dislike it. 

also i went out with angie (laura) last night. this is the last usage of laura for angie, because in just 4 short days, my girl will be the big 21!!!!!!!!! wheeeeeeee

the creamer in the fridge is "pumpkin pie". and now my coffee tastes awkwardly like pumpkin pie and not coffee. it is minorly worrisome.

i abandoned the blog in favor of life. whoopsy-doodle. anyway.

spent some time in the nasty 'nati, cincy, watching (and photographing) some races for the UCI weekend. the boy got two big wins (yay) and i failed at capturing victory salutes, my bad. also, i'm sorry the photos are shitty resolution; i'm sans macbook currently and all the fullsize photos are on there so here's little ones.


cincy at like 9:30 (i'm such a grandma lately):

and cincy at around 6:30 (a serious SERIOUS elderly person):

no one else in the room was functioning at that hour, though. i'm a big fan of this:

aaaaaaaaand sunday at harbin park:

zee erik:


(chartier lookin fastfast):


fred rose, killin it:

god DAMN this kid was ballin outta control:

get well soon to knapp and sherer, they both went down and did their collarbones in the last race.

i want my bike to be done. i just wanna ride something anything, it's been like 2 weeks and i think i'm dying.

also i need to do something for me, photoing i mean. i like the actionay stuff but i need to go out again with me or with some people and just SHOOT. and i'd like to do some film because i can afford to have it developed. hahahha it's funny because it's true.

i'm shelling out and buying erik's old cross bike.
and i'm stoked to try it out. i think i'll like it.
off to cincy for racing next time.

"last song" by matt pond PA just appeared on my itunes shuffle. i like it. shuffle win.


talked to kevin via ichat tonight. OMG his kitten is adorable. i just wrote "OMG" and "adorable". write it down, that happens about as often as i cry.

oh man, i must look bored.... dr dre was on the itunes as i'm sitting here at the lab doing nothing, and some random lab-goer said "thug. do you like rap? you should check out this website." and then directed me here, which has proven to be most amazing. win.
erik visited. awesome.

and i just got hungry.
....for a cookie. OH I HAVE ALMOND JOYS.

i'm not on crack, i promise.
