my bike, my balls and.. oh my god!

i bought some shoes for my bike today, just cheapies as they’re my first cleat/clipless shoes so i didn’t want to go all out and think they were pieces of crap.. although spending less money is a sure fire way to end up with something rubbish i suppose. so tomorrow i’ll probably be all cut up and bruised as i’ll forget i’m locked into my bike and i’ll try put my foot down and fall over. kind of like this guy to the left here.

except that i’ll be still attached in some way, most likely by my feet considering the cleats, but there is always the off chance one of my nuts will slip through the hole in the seat and i’ll be rendered incapacitated in some kind of oddly grotesque combination of carbon fibre and testicle. i’d like to think i’ve grown to the point that my balls are of the size that they wouldn’t slip through, but i’ve never actually gotten one out in the raw to¬† do a test fitment. i suppose at least i’m not rocking a seat like this one below, or things could be just a little more painful.

but enough about my balls. today was the first day without my boss. he’ gone and buggered off to work for another company back in sydney. he never liked brisbane much in the same way that i fucking hate sydney. its ok though, i understand. there is an old saying that goes something along the lines of ‘you can take the douchebags out of sydney but you can’t take sydney out of the douchebag’ ..or something like that anyway.

so he’s all gone now and today, i get to work and there is an sms waiting for me that i missed on my travels into the office. it was from our drafter who has an important deadline this friday, who told us last friday, at 3pm, that she was going to go to china on thursday for a week.. yes, thanks for the notice, by the way, do you have a visa? no? well you probably can’t go. well, we shouldn’t have raised the question because the sms i recieved read ‘hi, i’m not going to be in today or tomorrow, i’ve done the ligaments in my ankle, but i’ve booked my tickets to china, i’ll try come in wednesday’ wow. just wow. i did not get to work on a single bit of my own work today as i was running around crazily trying to find staff to help us out. thankfully our adelaide office could assist, my evil twin happily offered assistance as for the first time in months, he has a slow week. phew! but still, that doesn’t make our other issue any better, but drafters with tits and ass seem to get away with murder.

enough of that, here’s some musics.

stabbing westward – desperate now


oh and before i go, there are no words other than whiskey.. tango.. foxtrot!

so a few of my friends keep sending me photos of cats that are clearly takkun impersonators, so i figure i’ll start posting a few as i recieve/find them.

here is the first, and i tell you what, i’m so very tempted to buy takkun a box of styrofoam peanuts.

so i’m watcing a series on ancient aliens, where people believe that human civilization is a result of extra terrestrial visitors, that the aliens that came down from the stars and created humans in their image (as referred to by many religious texts from many different religions)

fascinating stuff, but if its true, that means those crazy believers in creationism are correct and that evolution fails.

after a long wait and collecting parts over the last 12-18 months or so, i have finally built my carbon fibre bike.

based around an oem carbon frame for china, total spent $2148, weighs 7.8kg and rides beautifully. the frame, forks, seat post and handlebars all came from the same supplier in china.

a few specs:

shimano ultegra sl groupset
fulcrum racing 3 alloy wheels
schwalbe ultremo r1 tyres (will have to be changed to something more durable)
nokon red annodised brake cable (gear cable did not arrive!)
ritchey bio max saddle
prologo bar tape

my mate aaron helped me build the bike, he builds them and resells them for a hobby, so it was very helpful learning from him and watching someone that has plenty of experience building bikes.

can’t wait to put a few kilometres on the bike, hopefully the weather will be good on the weekend. pics below.

so as valentines day approaches a friend (or more accurately a friend of a friend that i have met once or twice) put up a post on facebook stating something along the lines of ‘win a date with me for valentines day, submit your applications by sunday’

the girl in question is a mixture of awesome and confusing, but thats most girls these days. she is apparently into similar music to me and seems to have the same sense of humour, surely i’m in with a chance!?

not one to pass up an opportunity, i had a crack. this is what i sent:

song is related

i need to set up a webcam in my kitchen to record takkun’s adventures while i am away at work. today, i got home to takkun’s usual happy meowy greeting, but when i got inside, well, it seems takkun opened the kitchen cupboard where i keep his packets of whiskas meat, he got one packet out of the box, devoured it and when he was finished? by pure luck or that takkun is actually smarter than everyone in the world combined, he left the empty sachet of meat in front of the bin.

he can’t even speak english to understand what i say, not to mention he’s not even 2yrs old yet but he’s already doing a better job of cleaning up after himself than my ex girlfriend ever did.

unfortunately, using quotes from a book for your facebook status update in an attempt to sound deep and insightful doesn’t make you appear deep and insightful at all. i suppose at least its a book the majority of plebs wouldn’t have read.
