is over for the week.
The Padres wrecked LA tonight, we got to watch from the box.

This year I got on in the Manbird Invitational
. C-Note Five Bill's Top Shelf Chili With Rectum Fyre
didn't do well. Next year will be different, I will bring PC12303
. It is an extremely potent chili and doesn't waste good steak and bacon on unrefined palates. I will not bring Seared Esophagus
. They are not ready for Seared Espohagus
Cactus was popular. So was eastern fusion. Iced chili didn't meet a positive reception.
The sun sail
came, with some help I put it up. Less leaves in the pool this afternoon, no difference in sunlight reaching the water. I'm thinking of getting two triangular ones to complete the effect.
I ran a steel rope from the deck across the yard. It'll be a good mounting point for the other shades, and maybe I can find led lanterns.
My aftermarket seat
arrived today. Shipped from Vegas by ebay seller itshot
, response and turnaround time was great.
Of course it's nicer and newer than my weathered stock part. The look is a bit more in line with other bikes I've ridden - more seat less saddle. So while not as sleek it'll be more comfortable
. The black finish is great with the bike, I suppose the weave portion is meant to match carbon finish, of which I have ample.
There's a bit more gap between the fairings and the seat, but nothing unreasonable.
Monaco is pretty awesome, but nothing beats the double rainbow
of F1 and MotoGP Laguna
. The Red Bull slap fight
will no doubt continue, but on a course that won't be unkind to the McLarens. Maybe Schumi can step it up at his home GP. Yep, now that Webber and Vettel are bickering there are no more likeable characters capable of taking the checkered
And Rossi is back, maybe not in total 'screw-dirt-passing form
, but enough to mount a serious challenge. With Hayden figuring out the subpar Desmo and Spies getting new Yamaha parts, the Americans might have a showing
. But money has to be on Pedrosa who is finally looking consistent.
I have two things on the way. First is a sun sail for the backyard
- green rather than beige. I plan to string it up over the pump and shallow end of the pool. That'll deflect some falling leaves and have little impact on sunlight hitting the pool.
The Duc's seat is pretty well worn so I ordered a replacement from Sargent. It's guaranteed more comfortable than the oe, maybe nice enough to take a spontaneous Monterey trip on Friday. It is motorsport weekend 2010 after all.
I watched the Cup at Players
. The place is good for sports and they had plenty of Dutch brews, but the management is just a pain. Cover cost a Hamilton, no specials, lots of annoying signs
indicating seats could not be saved, and Ty
got turned away because the place was at capacity by the twentieth minute.
Squares were played, though not quite as elaborately as Super Bowl
. Exciting match, and ended in proper overtime, not pks.
The camera on the Jet/Galaxy is pretty bad.
- Re-epoxied the downstairs hallway.
- Trimmed some trees overhanging the pool.
- Reorganized the garage and finished the dog pen.
- Working on the study.
The plantlife is doing well, particularly the bamboo.
I have a chiminea. Jes
got it for me.
