end of week spin

i hooked up with melissa for an evening spin in the north part of town, including a few miles on a secluded dirt road for the heck of it. afterwards we went for some good food at punjab's. oh, and melissa was also stylin' in her new jacket.

fat kitty sunday

while riding around today i ventured over to the south mill for some coffee. that's taura's hood... so i gave her a call to see if i could come over and meet her kitties, bill and ms. xanadu weatherby. she's had them since spring and they are now fat, very playful, and much too cute to scold.

wake up call

i like seeing all the leaves everywhere. with such beautiful fall weather that we've had lately it's unfortunate if you aren't outside and enjoying it. i probably would have slept in this morning had it not been for janna calling and waking me up just before 9am. 'let's go for a ride, i'll be at your place in 5 minutes' she said. well upon arrival i could see that her bike was in serious need of some maintenance, so as i've done in the past, i threw her bike in the workstand for a mini tune up (a new 18t freewheel and new brakepads... her old ones where totally shot). afterwards we rode to tina's for some breakfast. thanks janna for the wake up call and breakfast. i think it's all a scheme of hers.

on a quest for celeste

i have a late 90's vintage cross frame that i picked up a while ago. i'm gonna build it up as a gravel/dirt/commuter rig but before i do that the frame needs some touching up first, so i headed out to a few places to see what i paint could find. bianchi celeste is a difficult color to match but i found a few shades that were pretty darn close. at hobby lobby it was a toss up between the bahama blue and sea breeze, but they only had them in acrylic.... darn. so then i rode to hobbytown usa (which is in southpointe now) hoping that they'd still have a huge selection of testors enamel modeling paint like they used to when they were out at eastpark plaza. testors enamel is a good choice if you can't find touchup paint for your frame at a local bike shop or can't order it online anywhere. hobbytown's selection was decent but not great. i guess i'll have to use the 'interior blue/green #2135' which is a smidge too dark but it was the closest enamel i could find.
