It’s called a child’s SATCHEL not BODY BAG. But the “Jesus loves you” is appropriate for either, I guess. … Understood, Englisch is cool, but you may want to look for a marketing team that gets this distinction đŸ™‚

The Point Mag

Filed under: stuff, Thinky Stuff, Uncategorized — crelatia @ 8:08 am

Hi all. I found an essay from the point mag yesterday when I was working at the new student orientation … I liked the essay so much that I looked at their site and read a few more.

Thought I’d share with ya’ll. (They are short, well written and seem to respect the reader. The articles I read were refreshing…)

It’s over there in the side bar, and I think I gave everyone read write privs. If we keep our bigger/more important rides there it may facilitate planning. I don’t want to get all M-A and insist we all eat spaghetti, so ignore at your will.

whoa, whoa, whoa

All I wanted to do was check out what was new at American Apparel (NSFW), not to see booty. Buuut (no pun intended), as long as they’re sharing, I thought I would too.

This commercial was banned from Superbowl…those silly vegetarians are just too sexy.

Round up. Vomity nervous about tomorrow.

Filed under: Politics (sorry), stuff, VeloFietsen — groenefee @ 11:12 am

Right BWers, I’m in all flavours of fidget currently. I’m at work and wanting to heave thinking about the impending election. I thought I’d offer some general summary points to facilitate distracting conversation.

    Wheel Building is a riot! I’m 5 Wheels in and so very proud of the results. They look cool as skool and I’m not posting pictures, as I’d like you to be gobsmacked with their beauty in person. I should say that the DA hubs inside Swiss DT rims with Schwalbe Ultremo tyres are freaking light and fast looking. Would love to build up a set of dick-around tubulars for shits and giggles. J if you run into those GP4s grab em. I wish that I had a slightly higher cash flow as I’d love to give wheels as x-mas presents.

    There is a bar nearby that is wonderful. Come here to experience. Properly served Groenefee and serious bier list.

    Weather…oh, my lord the weather…that leads me to talk about…

    Trixie. I repaired her wheels and put a new chain on her with skin wall 40-635’s and my gad, I forgot how much I loved her!

    Have you seen Control yet? damn fine film…follow it with Festival.

    Got the new Bloc Party…no reasoned opinion yet.

    Grass-fed local pork brats are soooooooooooooooooo wonderful! We’re in piggy heaven.

Collecting the AIG detritus

Filed under: Politics (sorry), stuff — groenefee @ 9:49 am

Considering that over the last two days I’ve had VERY mixed feelings about the government’s buy-out of AIG, that J has been twittering on it and T just sent this.

I thought I’d post here and solicit the general temperature of the water. Are we:

Experiencing the largest prop-up of criminally poor financial judgement?
Seeing a government taking drastic measures to stem, stop, or cover-up and pray about a much more devastating financial collapse? Indicated here.
Seeing a potent reminder of why the majority of citizens shouldn’t have their retirements amassed in anything but guaranteed return programs?
I have no idea how to feel about this right now.

Usually Pith and an Augument ad Absurdum re: #, but worth it this time for the perspectives

Good basic discussion on yesterday’s Fresh Air (9/17/08) Itunes Podcast Link.

Kudos to D&E
