*boing**splat**boing**splat*

(no, that's not mood swings, the splats are me hitting the walls....)

tried going without adderall at work today, fortified with a liter of mountain dew and later a liter of coke. it worked pretty well - I wasn't completely coordinated, but I didn't screw anything up and I didn't get insufferably bored either.

of course, it may be that using caffiene as a substitute for adderall defeats the point of going without the adderall, but it's interesting as an experiment if nothing else....

also got confirmation from Shannon that she is hoping to hire me back on in February or March, which is cool - means I don't have to coordinate my trip to boston with her, have a few weeks to catch up on firesea stuff, and will likely have my motorcycle by then, which will make the commute much easier. it will also be much less hectic then, which means I can work on completing my photographer training. and stuff. w00teth.

going dancing tonight with sea_gaagii and joystormer - Real Dancing (tm), apparently, which will be interesting (as the only partner dancing I am at all familiar with is the kind you do on ice). I'm going on the theory that if I look drop-dead gorgeous nobody will notice that I have no idea what I'm doing :)

My Butt Says:

I understand that pairs figure skating is a similar skill to ballroom dancing. I have never pairs skated, though, so take my opinion for what it is. Also: I am envious.

Also: I got a note from you today. It is way cool! Thanks!

What kinda bike do you have/are getting? I ride, too. I looooove my baby. But, I'm a puss, so I don't ride in the winter.

Re:
Don't have one, not sure what I'm getting - I've never even ridden one, so I'm taking the course first and then will start looking around.

What kind of bike do you have? Any recommendations?

Re:
Mine's a Yamaha Route 66, 250cc. A 250 would probably be a good size to start with. Not to small, not to big. And it doesn't look like a "chick" bike. Plus, it's great becuase you don't necessarily have to take the freeway to get around out here. I'll see if I can find a pic of my bike and post it. She's so pretty. :)

Not riding in the winter is smart. Not only is it damn cold, it's way easier to lose control of a bike than a car in snowy, wet, or icy conditions, and the consequences are far more severe.

Hey, my pleasure. If I can point out the blindingly obvious to even one person who will drastically overreact to it, then I feel my life has been worthwhile.

Re:
yeah, but this is seattle! we don't get snow or ice!

rain, sure, you have to be careful, but not really much more so than in a car.

Actually, no, you do have to be much more careful than in a car.

In a car, if one wheel slips, you're fine, you have three others. On a motorcycle, if one wheel slips, you're probably on the pavement.

Sorry if I'm sounding evangelical about this, but I have a friend who just got out of the hospital after being thrown from his bike, and my dad's boss had his leg crushed when he slipped on his bike in the winter.

And drop-dead gorgeous you were.

Sorry it wasn't what you were expecting, it wasn't what I was expecting either. Hope it was fun listening to me ham it up on the Karoke machine.
