growing up kind of.
New Whip! single speed 29'er courtesy of G-man at Bicycle Therapy. I rode frick with Stig, who is one of those doctors who dabbles as a pro bike racer, and Dr Rytel. Talk about feeling like an underachiever. He "likes to keep it steady" meaning that he gets like 10 hours worth of a workout in 2 or 3. It was insane.
Amy got a JOB! Like almost a real job, as a semi-permanent substitute teacher. Pretty rad. This meant buying a car, because the 6 mile commute would take 2 hours each way on public transport.
- I worked like 40 hours per week for 3 weeks straight
- I kind of own a car or at least part of one, or at least have regular access to one
This is almost like being a grown up!
I did a 24 hour lease, and pulled a cannonball run. 24 hours straight, with a 40 minute break to eat some dinner. 6am friday to 6am saturday. It really wasnt bad.
Taxi person gets in car:"been working long?"
me:"since 6... am...."
most taxi persons:" is that legal??"
I went home and slept for 5 hours, rode the rollers and then drove another 10. There was nothing else to do with this crap weather. Worked 35 of 45 hours, that rules.
My Brothertold me that the longest he went was 34 hours of straight driving. He met up with his ladylove for dinner and she MADE him go home to sleep cause he looked like a zombie. He figured he could get 7 hours sleep, get up around 7pm and get the nighttime rush. He woke up at 7 as planned and went to the food coop for some coffee and a snack. He said that things seemed weird, like there was a weird vibe, but he wrote it off as being tired. NPR was on and he thought that was weird cause DUQ starts jazz at 7pm. He then asked one of the Hippie dudes at the Coop if it was 7pm or 7am (this is during the summer when the temps are about the same and there is sunlight)... The hippie dude was like "uhh its morning man"... Whoops Justin slept for 19 hours instead of 7.
