    Update: this thing rules. Motorcycles are just as fun as bikes and garner looks from different kinds of people than bikes do.

    Flooded my engine this morning tho trying to ride it to work. LOL! Fuckin A.

    Also, tried to visit Sedition last night at CC but he wasn't there. BOO! someone smoking outside gave a very audible "Mmmhmmm..." when I pulled up and there was no one else around and he wasn't talking on the phone....Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    TIL: Had a phone interview with the head coach at University of Chicago; always hard to talk to people who really don't understand the sport you're working in even though they've worked alongside it forever.

    But it seems promising at least. University of Texas Austin might be next in line.

    TIL: my boss didnt show up to work till the last 30 mins of the day.
    tells me he sold another set of plans to a client in concord. too bad the building seasons ending :(

    TIL: I left work late last night. Like after 3am. Before I left I glanced at the Boston Bike Party version of Tag ‘n’ Brag on my phone. I noticed the current tag was close to my house. I haven’t been too active in that version of the game. Mostly just making a few dramatic tags to show them alternate “takes” on how the game can be played. They are pretty “vanilla” with it. The last one I did there was a reshoot of the roof-top billboard in Central Sq.

    So, I decided, “What the hell, it’s time for another dramatic tag.” How best to do that? Replicate Craig’s infamous Harvard tag. Going home, and to the Stadium, I take left onto Western Ave. off Mass Ave. As I approach that all-most U-Turn back onto North Harvard in Lower Allston, I see three people walking on North Harvard, heading toward Harvard Sq. They are clearly all looking at me, and looking at me for a much longer time than what would just be casual curiosity. This makes me a little cautious. 3:20am. No one else around. 3 dudes CLEARLY staring at me. My street senses go up. I make sure to take a very wide turn around them, when looping back on to North Harvard, too keep a good distance between us, just in case they are looking for trouble. As I pass them I hear someone start yelling my name. The voice is familiar for some reason. I look back, and recognize the beard: IT’S FUCKIN’ TED BERG. My jaw is on the floor, and I think I may have wet myself a little bit.

    …and I’ll save the rest of the story for a 40 Rack, BFIXEDBFAST, or Weekday Rager...It gets even better, including what happened when making the Harvard tag.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    I just got a call from an area fire department to set up an interview that will be in two weeks. It is for one spot and I might not get it, but I am still stoked.

    Yesterday I love that my insistence on keeping a map book in the car paid off when I was trying to find a street in Medford and my phone was shitting the bed.

    eta: And when my phone finally did work, the street was slightly mislabled on Google maps. But it was right in the book.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    so my cat Sharky has been wandering around the house yowling at night a lot lately and its been waking me up which sucks. She does it a lot when I watch TV; she'll pick up a toy and yowl a bunch. I looked it up and its a thing cats do as a way to say "look at this thing i have/did." I woke up this morning and all her toys were neatly piled at the edge of my bed and she was fast asleep next to them. Fuck off cat, stop being so damn cute and annoying at the same time.'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.

    Tonight at work a drag queen/nun from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence painted a pentagram on my forehead with nail polish for the purpose of officially "demonizing" me (cross that one off the bucket list). After awhile the fumes from the nail polish were making me kind of woozy (but not in that cool glue-huffing kind of way). I tired to wash it off in the bathroom with cheap bar vodka, but that didn't work. I went into the utility closet and found a "Ace Jumbo Sanding Sponge," which I use to sand the nail polish off my forehead, which is now starting to scab up a bit. Anyway, my resume now reads: skateboarder, lawyer, demon.

    So, the BEST thing I saw all Halloween was when were waiting for the convoy ride at Tosci Park.

    These three people were carrying a door frame. Full sized. It also had a functioning door. All three were dressed up in various costumes. One was an old lady with a walker. One was a "house wife"(??) The other was some guy, can't remember what he was wearing. As we are standing there, they stand the door up in the middle of Tosci Park, and crouch behind it. We are all looking at this situation "WTF are they doing?!?" On the front of the door was a sign that said "please knock." A few people did. The three people opened the door, and yelled "Happy Halloween to our wonderful trick-or-treaters!" At this point they started handing out candy to the people who had "come to their door." They then said "Goodbye, have a safe night," and closed the door. At this point they picked up the door and walked away. A block or so down the street, I saw them repeat the process with some other people. I was DYING. Most amazing/hysterical "costume" I've ever seen.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    After driving to Providence and singing the shit out of an audition, and then completely packing my car full of stuff including two kayaks on the roof, driving 6 hours to Rochester, and then unloading a 24' truck, all in the span of 36 hours on no sleep, the move is done. And a few days ago my friend called saying he got an offer on his house in Maine and is ready to move in to our place in Watertown in December.

    And then just now I finally got a chance to check my personal email, and found a message from Josh saying that the insurance company *finally* agreed to pay what Svetlana is worth.

    Timing couldn't have been better, because we've drained our bank account between the moving expenses and paying for two places simultaneously while Mrs. Pocky has been unemployed for the past two months until her new job starts in December.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    went to some free bike clinic today to change the chain and rusty freewheel on my single speed, and it ended up taking this guy and i 90 minutes and he was bleeding out of 4 fingers within the first half hour, but we both felt hella accomplished by the end (it was one that needed the spanner wrench thing and then step 2 was supposed to involve a vice and...there was just a lot of improvising)
