summer is coming.

nobody is going to read this, so i feel like i am wasting my time. but anyways. i got a new email address. its its neat. it has POP and i can use that through the apple mail program on my computer. anyways. i also just got Tiger 10.4. its the newest OS for mac. it comes out in two weeks. hmm. arghh we be pirates.

school is wrapping up. i have a speech tuesday about my final math paper. it should be fun. not. anyways. work is going well. i forgot to order a shifter, but other than that things have gone really well since i assumed the role as store manager. i gotta give reggie credit though cause she is the one that really set it all up.

on the more personal side for updates... i am coming along well with my collection of tools for my bike workbench. rachel be jealous. i just got a Park p-handle allen wrench set. a few weeks ago i added some cone wrenches to the collection. i have a pedro's screwdriver set coming in this week. i should be able to do all repairs soon from my new apartment. i also built a rear wheel for my DH bike last week. its a perfect match for the monster front wheel. hadley DH disc hub. Sun doublewide 24" rim. DT spokes. black everything. its stealthy. i like it. it sounds good. tickticktickticktickticktick. thats how it sounds. yeah.

i am about to clean our back yard at my parents house. then go to flatrock park to try to help with the new trail.

it sure doesnt feel like 12:15 am.

maybe cause its really 11:15 pm the previous day, and we're just being tricked into thinking today is today. last week was busy. i decided to not post anymore since nobody cares enough to read this page. or at least nobody wants to comment. but thats okay too. "...i awoke, and faintly bouncing round the room, a never ending coral maze..." phish. i rode my bike today. skipped breakfast. tried to convince myself that a granola bar was enough. it wasnt. and i was reminded by the hydration gods that youre supposed to drink water before youre hungry, cause your head will hurt for the rest of the day. speaking of which... i just got home from johnathan zarley's. we played halo for the last few hours. i wanted to get jazz today. i havent seen him in a while, but his mom was like he's grounded. oh well. i am currently typing aimlessly for whatever reason in a sort of stream of consciousness style. whatever comes to mind. astronaut. get the idea. also been thinking about a song thats close to my heart.

Crazy how it feels tonight
Crazy how you make it all alright love
Crush me with the things you do
And I do for you anything too
Sitting smoking feeling high
And in this moment it feels so right

Lovely lady
I am at your feet
God I want you so badly
And I wonder this
Could tomorrow be
So wondrous as you there sleeping
Let's go drive 'till morning comes
And watch the sunrise and fill our souls up
Drink some wine 'till we get drunk

It's crazy I'm thinking
Just knowing that the world is round
And here I'm dancing on the ground
Am I right side up or upside down
And is this real or am I dreaming

Lovely lady
Let me drink you please
Won't spill a drop, no, I promise you
Lying under this spell you cast on me
Each moment
The more I love you
Crush me
Come on, oh yeah

It's crazy I'm thinking
Just knowing that the world is round
And here I'm dancing on the ground
Am I right side up or upside down
Is this real or am I dreaming

Lovely lady
I will treat you sweetly
Adore you I mean you crush me
And it's times like these
When my faith I feel
And I know how I love you
Come on, Come on

It's crazy I'm thinking
just as long as you're around
And here I'll be dancing on the ground
Am I right side up or upside down
To each other we'll be facing
My love
By love
We'll beat back the pain we've found
You know
I mean to tell you all the things I've been thinking deep inside
My friend
Each moment the more I love you

Crush me
Come on
So much you have given love
That I would give you back again and again
Oh my love
Meaning I'll hold you
But please please let me always

yeah. im going to bed now. peace to all, or none.
