I'm doing the Envy Meme because, well, why not? If you have thoughts, plz visit and comment (anonymously if you wish).

30-mile-bike-ride yesterday. Whoo-hoo! And no bee stings. This ride was set aside as an "adventure," meaning I'm looking to ride someplace new and we'll see how it works out. Well then... the conclusion (NOT for the first time, BTW) is this: if a road is paved, paved, DIRT then the dirt portion should not, in my opinion, have a freakin' NAME on Mapquest/Yahoo-maps. Same for a gravel road-- for heaven's sake, it should not have the same legend as a paved road. Just sayin'.

So... my adventure resulted in no new bike routes, BUT I did see an emu (scary, ratty-looking birds) and a bunch of Brahma bulls (freaks of nature). :D

I have Montana and Oregon cornered for spn_50states, and the research will begin soon. This will likely force me to write actual SPN plot, and you know how that goes.

Fic page should be re-organized soon, and I'll be poking clex_monkie89 for the Prison Break pages (Clex, I will probably set aside some specific ones for the slash, if you haven't done that already). I think that fic page has close to 100 entries, and ork-- time to split into 4 subgroups. Thank goodness for semagic, and for talented friends who are good w/the graphics. ;)

I don't know why, but this cracked me up big time :D

;) Speaking of freaks of nature... these fangy plotbunny puppets just kill me. :D

The Portland (Oregon) Zoo has some kind of African... heron? What the hell is it? It's a vulture relative, and it is large and evil-looking, like something that would tear your heart out in a nightmare. A brother-in-law calls them "Edgar Allen Poe birds." The emu is practically friendly looking compared to those. :0

Holy wow impressive, Batman.

Is that 30 miles there and 30 back or 15 and 15? Either way, I'm out of breath and tired just thinking about it.

Can I be envious of your ability to form wonderful sentences here?

Around the office, it's 30 miles of total loop-de-loop over various routes. From home, I use the bike path where you go up for awhile, then turn around and come back. In the wintertime, that has the disadvantage of not being able to see what the weather is where you're going if it's iffy (black clouds? Or just meh?). Around the office, I can actually spot the locales of parts of my ride relative to the weather. Although on a gray day that doesn't look particularly threatening, I might lose the bet and get rained on when I don't expect it. Ugh. Squishy bike shorts and puddles in the bike shoes. So disgusting. :0
