Back on the bike

So it’s probably no big deal to most people.  A wee bike ride, right? What’s the big deal? Hell, little kids ride their bikes everyday and they aren’t  writing blog posts then, are they? Well no but most little kids aren’t  six weeks out from total knee replacement surgery.  So there. It was just a little, short jaunt around the neighborhood.  Truth be told, I wasn’t even sure if I could ride yet.  But yes, yes I can.  Thank you very much. Look for me at a Tour De (something) near you soon.  I’ll be the guy with the black leggings.  Probably even in the summer.  

Step X on my way to becoming The Terminator

A little over a year ago I decided that I’d had enough with the constant knee pain, swelling, not being able to walk on it to the point where I was forced, yes forced, to sit around and drink beer.  I decided to have the knee replacement surgery.  It was a fun filled extravaganza of joy and frivolity. Not really. It was a rough couple of weeks of drug induced haze.  In fact I remember very little of the entire ordeal.  You could have told me that a squadron of hippies came through chanting “Hare Krishna” while wearing high heeled boots, diapers and fireman coats and I would have believed you.  In fact  I think that this occurred at least a few times.  I’m pretty sure of it. So tomorrow I go in for the second knee replacement.  I’m looking forward to the chanting hippies making their return.  I hope to join them.

Back. Yes, it’s true. Alert the media.

Due to some catastrophic idiocy on my part…er…I mean…um…server failure.  Yeah, that’s the ticket, server failure, all was lost.  Alas, that’s the way she goes. I’m in the market for a new pair of jeans.  I shop around a bit on Amazon and other sites and, look I’m going to sound old here (because, damnit I AM OLD) but really? $207 for a pair of jeans? I’m guessing that they come with a special cleaning person to brush any crumbs off of your lap, a dancing girl to oogle you and tell you how fabulous you look and a solid metal safe to keep them in. I said I was back, but really? What did you expect? War and Peace? Next time
