PEST FEST: Randoms

One week into PF[b!] and things are good.


The rikety old bike that I'm borrowing for my stay is a nasty old bitch of a bitch and I'm not a fan. It is like trying to pedal a lawnmower. I'm on the handlebars even when I'm going downhill. And every evening I have a big hill to climb. It is Total Bullshit, but since I'm sauced most evenings for the ride home, I am surviving.

I purchased a skateboard yesterday. Hilarity will ensue, and stories will be posted shortly.
I am potentially merely a few short hours from being an uncle.

People are really starting to buy the Olympic Fencing Team line. So much so that I'm thinking of taking it up. Or at least reading up on it so that I know what the hell I'm talking about.

Somebody handed me a mango fruit popsicle yesterday afternoon while I was walking down the street. I love this town. (It was wrapped.)

No "Fuck Off Friday" today, but for all of you haters out there, "6 Questions" will be back in all its glory next week.

Gotta go. July is over and I am ready to Rip August a New Asshole.*


* and you can interpret that any way you want.

I'm just really excited to see if you remember your name when you get back. BTW, how was that mango Popsicle? I've never had one and it sounds delightful.

And who's August?

If I had a mother-in-law, I'd make her a t-shirt that borrows my new favorite Cherry quotable:
"Nasty old bitch of a bitch". Apologies to my future mother-in-law, who I don't yet know.

Also, I gotta know if mango popsicle is a euphemism for something else.

I'll be patiently waiting for you to be profiled in next month's Transworld magazine.

You know they have these new things called CARS. You might want to look into it when you're done playing with your bikey.

Sounds like one of my favorite lines from The Fifth Element

"Negative, I am meat popsicle"

So do you just eat any random food that total strangers give you?

August is about to get fucked up.

Mr. Shain said...

i swear to god, i'm going to start posting some of your text messages to your blog for you. so that the cherry ride readers can get an more honest, truer picture of you.

What a great way to discover a new hobby. Just tell people you do it and then you will sort of be forced to figure it out. Nice!

Maybe you should buy a riding lawnmower and just get around PDX on it.
