The Dark Ages

Adam picked friends and I up at the Airport following our 4 day Moab, 3 night vegas "recentering." Upon my home arrival, I was pleased to find a pink Chris King headset that I had bought on ebay and a brand new Giro Ionos (thanks Mary). I have always loved receiving mail ever since I went to the boat school and mail was your only contact with real people in the real world. Anyway, Adam made claim that it took him a while to figure out how to turn on the heat in the house--this morning when he woke up, he could see his breath.

Its funny because I just dont like the heat. I kept the house at 69 until I got my 1st bill this summer. I have been pushing up the air conditioner by a degree so that my bill would come down. I am now at a barely livable 73. So I like this time of year when you actually need to turn on the heat. I think it is cool when you wake up in the morning and can see your own breath in your bed. YOu sleep better that way right?

Long story short, I feel like its the Dark Ages. The Dark Ages was a term used to describe the time you would return to the Academy from Christmas break until spring break. You had nothing to look forward to and would just have to struggle through the 10 weeks. Its not that I dont have anything to look forward to, its just that I would rather do other things that what I should d0. The fun is over and now its time to get back to the last 3 applications. Parts of me dont want to do any of it. I just want to ride my bike.

Its 130 and I watched Nip/Tuck when I got home. What a train wreck. But a fun train wreck.

I can see this is turning more into random thoughts than anything meaningful. So I just wanted to say congrats to Tyler for scoring a Hincapie spot. And K-blog you look good in SR green/teal.
