slinkies

She's gone.

Well, I am now officially bikeless. *sigh* The past two rides I've had on her have been the most cruel. She's a really great bike, the new front tire is awesome, and with the factory bar ends there is virtually no vibration - I can actually feel my hands at the end of a ride.

One last look at her.





Here's what $2000 worth of cosmetic damage looks like.



Hubby has suggested an 86 Ninja 1000, but it is 4 years older and 200 lbs heavier. I think I will take a look at the local bike shop on the 1st, they are having a ride day. I'd like to give the 599 (naked 6) and the 600F4i a try - if nothing else, I'll see what I'm missing.

Girlie poker

I am trying to clean up my kitchen this evening after last night's girlie poker. Who knew that 2 people making mojitos could make such a mess! My kitchen is a minty mess, and I don't know if my mortar and pestle will ever recover. Apparently part of the problem is that the 'cooks' in this whole operation thought they were using a 1/4 cup spoon to measure the rum, and it turns out it was a 1/3 cup spoon *g*. I'm not sure why they felt that entitled them to throw it down my kitchen cupboards, but there are some things I'd just rather not know. The other part of the problem is that my sister will generally make a mess of any kitchen. Speaking of mojitos, I'm not sure what they taste like with booze in them, but making them virgin is a real treat. 7up (actually they used cherry coke), liquid sugar, mint and lime - sickly sweet. I've had many, many well intentioned virgin concoctions in my day and this one wasn't bad, but it nearly put me into a diabetic coma.

Despite the sugar high, I managed to break even again (finished 2nd), so I don't have to host, but I'm not down any money. Remember that next time you're trash talking Stella!

I'm still debating the other game tomorrow night. Now that my plans for this evening were cancelled, I could in theory study and write my test tonight and go play with the boys tomorrow....of course that won't get the knitting I need for Friday done....hmm.

Dear astronomy professor:

If you decide that one of the questions for last week's quiz was improperly worded, please at least have the kindness to post a note on the bulletin board for the class that our marks will go from 20/20 to 19/20 and that we will be finally graded on /19 rather than removing the answer from everyone's tests. I *knew* I answered that question first off, and secondly I knew I answered it correctly. I also knew that when I received my grade last Thursday it was different from the one that was displayed tonight.

Really, it doesn't take much to tip the scales, work with me!

Thanks ever so much,

The student that is now taking screencaps of all tests and results.
