Why ever would a team opt for a pass with 36 seconds left in the game, with that field position?

An unseasonable 91A here today. 93 yesterday. I might get an afternoon MTB ride in, though I'm still dragging from booster Monday. Workers here in the morning.

I re-sanded the Paramount frame, and will shortly commence waxing it. Never waxed a bike before, and also never had such poor results with paint. Maybe it will protect it some. I'm afraid to put clear coat on it.

I forgot my wireless keyboard and mouse at work and the 2 year old one at home hasn't been working. Oh no I thought, I'm ******. Dragged out my vintage set from 2006 put batteries in keyboard and mouse and they work like a champ. Take that!

Slow morning. Everyone must be waiting in line for booze.

So I Zwifted instead. And it rained on me anyway!

Mid 40's here today and tomorrow, but Sunday in the 20's]. I also got called in to work last night. There aren't enough F words. Especially since "someone" dropped the ball to cause it. But we can't have a bunch of Oldsicles (14 story retirement home) coming home @5:am is just not natural, especially sober.

Slow day at the shop today. Thankfully we're only open for another hour or so.

I did get to ride in this morning though! Pretty rare for me to get to commute on my bike.

Every coat I put on instantly becomes orange peel. The primer had no issue, but every color coat does. Two different brands of paint. I painted another bike in that same location with the same brand of paint, last month. No issues. It's a good thing I'm not a stickler.

Nope.

Remember when President Bush went to his ranch on vacations, and would bring in cameras to film him hauling brush, to convince people he was a tough guy? Well, that was me this morning, only no show for the camera, I'm real deal tough.

Is anyone going to do an Addiction 2021 Year In Review? A retrospective on the highlights and lowlights of this thread?

DougRNS 12-31-21 12:00 PM

Work from home done for the day. Tomorrow I will resume, also Sunday.
I'm working Monday even though it's a holiday and taking it as a floating day later on. I sold back 2.5 unused days of PTO at 80% this year last year it was 7. I can't wait until every day is a Saturday.

F this BS.

quality was low. I blame myself. not enough mentions of the awesome suite of products like the shovel, Marigold jacket and lightweight, elegant and aero seatpost.

i won't go any further, draw your own conclusions.

We have entered the final 12 hours of year 2021.

All I can say is it was better than the infamously tragic 2020. But that's a low bar.

I have lost my ability to drink booze. One beer, or one shot is plenty for me.

seedsbelize2 12-31-21 12:40 PM

I believe this is my personal warmest new year's eve. Year of no winter.

Mrs datlas and I were walking in downtown Wayne a few days ago, and we walked by the state store (place where you can buy wine and liquor).

I told her we should rename it the alcohol dispensary.

I donít see it happening.
