I'm not used to it being this warm outside! It's probably like 82 degrees out. Kinda humid too! So, less the need to be said (needless to say), I am inside with the shades pulled and curtans drawn and the fan on to keep my room at a nice loe 70 something...

I just saw an ad on TV for the "Landrider" the bike that shifts automatically. I don't want one, I just want to try one. I'm really interested in how it works. I think it would somewhat of a hassle for me though. I mean, it's probably great for all of those people that don't do anything but ride to Starbucks in town (my parents), or do very mild trails, no extreme singletrack.

Speaking of singletrack, I keep thinking about going singlespeed. I know, it will probably be hard at first, but think, its quiet, theres no maintenance practically, and it's cheap (there's no derailleurs to replace). But, I probably won't cross that bridge in a while because I just bought a new rear derailleur, a Deore LX for $45. My old Acera broke, which I am glad because that thing was junk. Anyway...

Last night I went clothes shopping, by myself, at Kohls. I went nuts! I got 4 new button up long sleeve casual shirts (w/the sleeves rolled half way up), one pair of khakis, one pair of jeans, one pair of shorts, and a pair of Asics. The shirts are totally not me, well, they are now, but it used to not be like me. They are pretty colorful, but I stayed away from the overly pink and purple and girly blues and stuff. Oh, the Asics I got are the Lightning/Smoke Pearl/Orange.

Well, I gotta go, I gotta find something else to do.
