Get out the Brass Knuckles...

Tomorrow is the official Slap Your Irritating Co-workers Holiday! Do you have a co-worker who talks nonstop about nothing, working your last nerve with tedious and boring details that you don't give a damn about? Do you have a co-worker who ALWAYS screws up stuff creating MORE work for you? Do you have a co-worker who kisses so much booty, you can look in their mouth and see what your boss had for lunch? Do you have a co-worker who is SOOO obnoxious, when he/she enters a room, everyone else clears it? Well, I am so very glad to officially announce tomorrow as SLAP YOUR IRRITATING CO-WORKER DAY! There are the rules you must follow:

* You can only slap one person per hour - no more.
* You can slap the same person again if they irritate you again in the same day.
* You are allowed to hold someone down as other co-workers take their turns slapping the irritant.
* No weapons are allowed...other than going upside somebody's head with a stapler or a hole-puncher.
* CURSING IS MANDATORY! After you have slapped the recipient, your assault must be followed with something like 'cause I'm sick of your stupid-a$$ always messing up stuff!'
* If questioned by a supervisor or police, (if the supervisor is the irritant), you are allowed to LIE, LIE, LIE! Now, study the rules, break out your list of folks that you want to slap the living day lights out of and get to slapping.....and have a GREAT DAY!

So Fresh and so Clean...

From Harper-Collins

Riders, get ready!

The biggest bicycle race in the world is about to begin—the Tour de France. Lance Armstrong is the fastest, most famous bike rider in the world, so what could go wrong?


From rainstorms to crashes to cows in the road, Lance goes the distance to show that winners never quit. And—while Lance pedals—you'll enjoy discovering funny details and recurring characters in art that gives a spectacular view of the race.

Not too mention all the meanie's who try to derail Lance; Simeoni, the Vampires, American hating French media, Walsh, finding the right make-up to cover the needle marks, being able to dispose of trash indiscreetly, the double-crossers who leave his team to dope for another team, and all the women who don't understand that he should be able to cheat on them. I know what I"m getting the SMithers kids for Christmas!

Look Fast?

Cause I sure as heck don't ride fast, my times were way off my PR's set 2 years ago.
Hanz wasn't there so Franz was cuddling up to me!

It's the Shoe Covers

National Champ sez his secret is the silver shoe covers. The Silver Bullet delivered again with a pr in the flying 200 of 11.49 and a 3:40 3k and a 1:09 kilo, all bests for the day.

terribly boring

my blog has become terribly boring. I don't have any funny skibbyshops in my brain anymore, I don't have any good pictures to post and I don't feel like bitching about anything or praising anything. I am excited that the tour is starting on Saturday. Frankly, my favorite races are the Spring Classics, but the tour is nice, because I can fall asleep to it every night for 3 weeks...
