Weekend Recap

Good times so far this weekend.

I got my new computer up and running fully. I have to do some housekeeping inside the machine; tie-wrapping cables, installing the hard drives in their bays, putting the cover together. I will probably spend some of the day getting software installed on it. It runs Windows Vista like a champ. Basically, the freeze problem centered around the fact that I was running a hard drive and a cd-rom drive off the same IDE bus. It’s well-documented that you can do this but for some reason my computer/mobo didn’t like it and pouted (read: froze up!).

I’m writing this blog before I officially start my day. I’m going down to my friend, Kevin’s house to get my new bicycle. What a friend! He’s giving me the bike. Of course, I’ll ask him like 50 times if I won’t take any money for it and he won’t but that’s how we roll. I’ll probably have to stop at Target for a bike lock and cereal.

I got to meet Mel, a fellow blogger, whose place on the Internet garners a lot more attention than my little space. Say it ain’t so! You think she’s awesome from reading her posts? Try meeting her in person. She’s great and a laugh riot. ‘Nuff said for now.

Housework definately is in the plans for today. I have a load of clean laundry sitting in the dryer. Thank God, I have an iron. Oh, and there’s another load of clean laundry that somehow found it’s way on the floor. {looks around like he doesn’t know who did that}

And there’s sleep… I’m in early for the next two days at work to help with our morning newscast. One of the producers is off so I’m going to be a writing machine. My fingers and typing skills are going to get a workout.

Speaking of that, I don’t know what I pulled on the right side of my chest but it hurts like a mutha. I suspended my workouts for about four days and tried working out Friday and it seems to have come back. It HURTS! When I sneeze, I have to hold my hands to my face to stop from jerking forward, otherwise it feels like someone suckerpunched me in the ribs. Zowie!

Okay, seriously, I have to get going else all of the aforementioned things are just either not getting done or they’re all going to back into one another.

So, I’m off…

I Need A Bike

All of the cool kids are doing it now-a-days, biking!

I think I can cut down on my walking and my gas bill by getting a bicycle. Target has one on sale for under a $100. I just need two wheels, a frame and a comfortable seat.

So, here’s my question, will cheaper bike affect my ride? What should I look for when buying a bicycle. I’m not going to ride the Tour de France so it doesn’t have to be built from airplane grade aluminum. I just want something that will get me from point A to point B without a big wedgie and leaving me feel like I just peddled to the Point.

I’d appreciate your comments and suggestions!
