Miscellaneous Crap

  • I have a doctor’s appointment today. Follow-up on a few things, and going over some new things. I won’t go into detail here — not until I know for sure what’s up and the people closest to me have been made aware of anything important that comes out of this.
  • The Vikings have eked out a 6-0 start to the season, but I suspect that that won’t go past Sunday, as they travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers. Minny’s pass defense has been lacking, and was really hurt by Winfield’s absence after the first quarter against Baltimore. All in all, I have us down as losing to the Steelers, Bengals, and Giants, though that second one could go either way now that they’ve lost Odom for the season. Final record, most likely 13-3, possibly 14-2. Unless the Saints get some catastrophic injuries, they eat us alive in the NFC Championship game.
  • This weekend looks to be interesting. Will be “up north” this Friday night and Saturday — for you non-Minnesotans, “up north” is defined as anywhere north of the exurbs (Monticello, for example). We’re going to be doing food tastings at caterers and looking at reception sites. After that, it’s back to the Cities. Sunday, I’ve got my framebuilding class, which I’m looking forward to. More welding and mitering. Possibly some blueprinting.
  • Been spending a lot of time and lovin’ with the Cyclist’s Training Bible lately. Figuring out a two-peak plan for next racing season — with peaks in August and November. Wanting to do well at the various State Championship races next year. Going to be competing in road, track and cyclocross. Need to find a yoga class to start attending, too. I think there’s a weekly one at the Y. Maybe.
  • In the geek realm, I’m designing a new website for my framebuilding venture, wondering what the hell the point of Google Wave is, and thinking about getting another Airport Express on the home network — this one for the living room stereo, which I should really get around to hooking-up one of these days when I have some time.
  • Have I mentioned lately that I am madly in love with my wife-to-be? Yeah, well, I’m going to mention it again. I look at her and I get butterflies in my stomach. I think about all the awesome things we’ve done and all those still to come, and I can’t imagine doing those things with anyone else.
