I feel like I'm never the first one to say "Good morning." or "How are you today?" I'm always having to be like "Not bad" or "Pretty good" or whatever; and then almost as if it didn't occur to me to ask, I'm like "...Oh yeah, and how about you?" This bothers me a bit. Am I that selfish? (Yeah, probably.) I don't think that it's because I'm not interested. It's just that, for whatever reason, I don't think to ask right away. Someone who thinks they are really smart would probably tell me that it's because I'm an introvert or something. Whatever. Anyway, I've been attempting to change this behaviour and beat people to the punch, so to speak. Also, I've been trying really hard to ask my roommate or my girlfriend how their day was before they ask me.

Lot's of folks from work are gone to Austin for SXSW. I've only been once before, but I think I got the hang of it: If you're into walking forever, from bar to bar and not being able to get into any of the shows you want, but finding some unexpected jem of a band at a bar not participating in the festival, then you'll think it's a really good time. I'll admit, I'm kinda jealous. If I was there, and I was able to get in, I'd probably go to this...
Old Bubblicious was down and out for a bit, but the guys at the Hub hooked me up with the bolt I lost a while back and we are on the road again. Feels good too. This is the bike I will be riding on the tour to raise money for my friends medical bills later this spring. More details to come, as the plan is close to being finalized. Not sure, but I may be the first person to ride a fixie from the TC to Bemidji.
ps-Yes, that is Deja Vu' in the background; and no, I did not go there for the "lunch buffet."
When someone says a celebrity looks like you, wouldn't that make you the actual celebrity? Otherwise they would have said you look like the celebrity. Right? I tell ya, it's hard being famous because people are always telling me about regular folks (like this guy) that look like me.
