Do Not Bend, Fold or Mutilate

I have spent the weekend learning to ride a motorcycle.

My body has been bent, folded and well-mutilated, as the instructors chose it ignore the stickers I plastered all over my (borrowed) leather jacket like the precious cargo I once believed myself to be.


The good news? I did it. I survived. Not with any impressive style, not with any blistering speed, and certainly not with any dose of precision, but I did it, and have mastered the basics.

Everything hurts, including the little part over my ears where my sunglasses got pushed into my head by the helmet. The little nubs dug right in for two entire days. It's like falling asleep with your glasses on, but worse.

Full details will be divulged in a November 1st feature, so anyone holding their breath for the dirt will have to wait. Unless you know me well enough to have my number, than I don't mind staggering over to the phone and answering it.

For now, I'm catching up on writing and reading. If you're bored, and don't mind a little profanity, check out this site. The Foggy Monocle - strictly a frat boy existance chronicled for those of us looking in, but it's sometimes hilarious. Not that drinking too much and texting is ever a good thing, but who knew you could make a whole site out of it??

Were you too busy becoming Evel Knievel to catch Cariboo Sarah and Tina Fey on Saturday Night?
It was a hoot!
First time I've watched any SNL since Eddie Murphy Days.

DJ...SNL needed the lift. I haven't watched in years either. Yes, it was quite funny...
