the mind of a manic archives for April 2004

Added by snotty on 2004 April 26: Passed through London yesterday and saw Matt and Love and had some Lebanese food. Now I'm in Israel during Independence day. I finally uploaded the whistler pictures and videos. The haifa weather here is great and reminds me of Mexico merged with San Diego but with more guns. Good coffee and food here too.

Added by snotty on 2004 April 18: The bike now has 2500 miles on it. Cleaned and lubed and the rear and front lifters have come. Ordered some track pants and now I'm just waiting for the boots and I'll be ready to go. Also installed a tank pad so I can start working on a fender eliminator now. Had aaron's bday which was cool - at a place called Chandlers - great view, decent food. Kill Bill v2 was ok, but I wanted more gore. I'm not a big fan of the actor that plays Bill, but Uma Uma Uma!!! My favorite ride with the bike is now going to snoqualmie falls. A good way to get rid of the chicken strips.

Added by snotty on 2004 April 12: went to exit 38 and led a few 5.9s and took two falls trying a 5.10c. - There were two big moves that i couldn't get on the first try. It was great fun with Chris and Dan. I really want to do it again. Rollerbladed 15 miles with Janet, Elliot and John. It was invigorating and I want to do more.

Added by snotty on 2004 April 11: Ate at a hawaiian bbq place in UW today - not a bad place - around 50th and University. Also helped Z move to his new pad two buildings over and enjoyed the 70+ weather. The jacket is already here and I love it already - it's low key enough to almost get by as a regular jacket. I biked 20 miles or as I'm starting to suspect - 20 km at marymoor and managed to increase my total average speed to 30.18kph, which is just under 19mph. Then chris and I climbed the marymoor rock at dusk and even broke out our headlamps. We're going to play around exit 38 tommorrow and I'll need to take pictures. I've got the pictures back from whistler and now I just need to get them posted.

Added by snotty on 2004 April 7: I've been on a shopping spree. Alpinestar Hero jacket, Alpinestar Bat pants, GPX boots, bike maintenance stuff (oil, chain lube, de-greaser, front and rear stands, tank pad). It's time for me to buy a dozen quick draws and a sport climbing rope too. The Xbox has dropped to $150 which makes me want to buy one, which would mean I need to get a flatpanel too. I don't know what's causing this need to shop - I guess I'm sad or something.

Added by snotty on 2004 April 4: The weekend was great. I led climbed two 5.7s at the Marymoor park climbing rock on sunday. Went to impromptu wine bar in Madison Park. I also played soccer with our team - we lost 3 to 1 but I think we actually had the better players. We just can't play as a team so far. I'm also a fan of the weather right now - it's sunny, if not warm. Today we lost an hour. It sucks because that's one less hour of sleep, but it comes back as one more hour of sunlight. I'm looking forward to getting a tax refund and israel now. It should be a fun month.
