.. and I don’t feel prepared. 48 miles on a mountain bike? What did I get myself into? I’m sure I’ll do fine, but I expect to be sore the rest of the weekend.
I’ve taken a long weekend off from work for my birthday. Yesterday, my wife took me to our favorite Italian restaurant and we stuffed ourselves with good food and a little wine to celebrate. We bought some books — In keeping with my eclectic taste, I picked up a copy of The Magic Thief and The Conqueror Worms.
We also picked a new laptop. I got an HP which was recommended and am very happy with it so far. The processor seems very fast. It has Vista which I am wary of, but there seems no way around that these days unless you go the Mac route which I still might do in the future when I am forced to get a new desktop. So hopefully my computer issues will be less of a problem now. I actually got some writing in today (about 2,000 words to finish up a short story). Yeah! I feel accomplished again!
Wish me luck tomorrow…..I’m gonna need it!
