these are a few of my favorite things(ish)

I still feel mildly whimpy when on the 2 wheeler. Death lurks at every intersection...If only I had my bright orange MOMO to be more visible (still hasnt come in the mail). The vancouver scooter rally is next weekend...yipee and gong show. last year I think there was 100 bikes or so. My triumph is coming along nice. the engine is in, the cables are hooked, tyres are on, exhaust is hooked. now the crazy electrical (Lucas...aka the prince of darkness) system must be wired and the front end and floor boards must go on. the bike may be ready for the weekend. I might be a bit of a whimp on it as the brake is on a different side (left) and the gears change with my right toe.

I like beer at spinakers gastronomy (sp?) pub. I ran the tasters when there. I was not riding the day I hit the pub.

say farewell to august.

peaked twins

I watched the twin peaks pilot episode last night. agent cooper! he is the best! log lady! eye patch lady. big ed. constant moody synth music coupled with drum snare shuffles. Revisit!

ps. my triumph engine will be ready to put back into my bike this weekend. will the good news ever end.

lost in the mail

this is my birthday present. The postman showed up at my door on a Sunday. I missed the door and he walked away with the box. It has been a week and nothing has showed up at my door since. He didn't even leave a ticket to pickup at an outlet. I have phoned all my local post offices as well as Canada Post main office and they said that my missing helmet situation is "concerning".

I did however, otherwise have a lovely birthday involving, canoeing, hiking, eating, croquet, scootering and partying with greyhounds.
