      So I survived running a 5k last weekend. It has not changed my opinion that running is dumb, but its cool to know I can do it.

      Hope you guys have been doing alright.

      I'm all graduated.

      I was pretty unenthusiastic about sitting around for hours just to walk across a stage, but it was definitely something to witness when all the people cheered as the grads moved their tassles over.


      It hasn't really sunk in yet. I'm going to have a few busy months ahead of me trying to get my stuff together to apply to various grad writing programs and finding a means of income in Jax, but I'm looking forward to it.

      Managed to survive my first outing on the new motorcycle.

      183625_576767787652_208103243_32969033_1

      Stuff starts zipping by real fast at 160 mph. I never went anywhere near a competitive race pace during the day, but for my first outing on a superbike I was pretty happy with the results. Figured out some changes that need to be made to the suspension and didn't break anything, mission accomplished.

      I was supposed to go check out the shuttle launch yesterday with the college of engineering, but two weeks of limited sleep made 12 plus hours in a bus seem less than enjoyable. Hopefully I can make it to one of the remaining scheduled launches.

      Hope things are well with you guys.

    • Hi folks

      Seems like my vacations/breaks are always far more hectic than my typical day to day, and this one was no exception. I've been kind of m.i.a. for a while, and that will probably keep up for some time. Just got back from my first day of advanced workshop and I'm pretty excited about this semester. My teacher seems nice and more importantly, like she will be helpful.

      I also officially acquired, or was acquired by, a new lady while over break. So trying to find time to hangout between a writer and engineering schedule will be cutting into some online time.

      Another exciting most exciting development over break was being suprised by my parents with a 2004 yamaha R1 track bike. Dad got an awesome deal on it from a friend he works with and tricked me by saying we wouldn't be able to get it for a while, only to toss me the key to the gas tank on christmas morning. So now I have a bike that is for the race track only, that I can continue to learn on and repair relatively cheaply if the need should arise. Down the road Dad and I plan to enter some endurance races that run for multiple hours and require multiple riders, so its a bit of an investment for him.

      Jackie, in advance I apologize for it being yellow. First time I scratch it up good, I'll look into getting it painted.

      christmas2010007.jpg

      Most importantly, and I know it is a bit late, I hope you all had good holidays and that you each have a happy and fulfilling year ahead of you.

      About the stories I said I was going to be posting a few journals back. I got a bit bogged down by paper writing and the regular school grind, not to mention trying to get some reading for fun done. It'll happen, I promise. I even sketched out a few more ideas, I just need a couple of peaceful days to sit down with them and make them coherent.

      So I went for a ride today to force myself to acclimate to the cooler weather. I looped around campus once and then headed out to the woods area. I ended up stopping at this really nice boat launch/park area to warm up and turn around.

      A couple of good ol' boys were all camo-ed up and pulling their boat out. They give me a "what is this loud, foreign, demon-machine" look, but I just waved and hopped off my bike to warm up for a bit. They left as I was suiting back up and I ended up catching them right before the main road.

      Right as we got up to the 55 mph speed limit, I was about ten or fifteen feet behind them, the busch light cans started flying at me. By the time I dodged the third one I was laughing at how perfectly stereotypical this was and decided it was time to leave them behind in case they were really hammered.

      Oh, rednecks. You crazy, crazy people.

      In the chicken vid, Robert had just cut the head of the chicken, and leaned on it to start de-feather, and apparently the way the throat was cut, it was squeaking, so he just kept doing it. My bff (his sister) took the vid on her iphone, but didn't want to put it on her youtube for fear of PETA related threats.

      I know from experience that you have to have a TON of stamina even just to make it through your rounds and still be standing. But I agree with you, Carwin should've been prepared for that, and it seemed like he KNEW he was just smashing the shit out of Lesnar and put all of his energy into getting with a KO or a tap out before the bell rang. By that second round, both of them were so defeated on some level, that it was obvious one of them was going to be put into some form of submission. I'm really disappointed that it was Carwin.

      I agree with you on Lesnar's fighting techniques. It's so hard to tell whether he's actually got skill, or if he's just sitting on the dudes 'cause he's so damn HUGE!! I would love to see Couture and Lesnar have at it again. But I really want Carwin to rematch. I think that he just got used to being a single round dominator, and has been presented with a decent match-up.

      After that fight, I have a lot more respect for Lesnar. That dude took such a beating to the face. Holy shit. I remember the first time I got hit in the face, I wanted to sob for hours. I can't imagine taking hit after hit after hit like he did, and still be able to hop up and go for another round.

      And yes to Akiyama and Leben!! THAT was a really good fight. Lots of action, lots of blows... Great technique from both sides, good form.... all around good game.

    • cyanophobia

      9 years ago

      I was rooting for Carwin, though I knew Lesnar was going to take it. I don't like him because he's such a drama queen and though I know that's a HUGE driving force of WWF entertainment (the fact that they are Man Soap Operas), I don't want to see people being disrespectful towards the people and companies who support them when they get into the ring. Just shut up and fight. Last night, much like every fight before that, Lesnar proved he can put his money where his mouth is. I'd love to see a rematch between the two.

      If worse comes to worse a machine shop should be able to fabricate you an exhaust. I wouldn't imagine it would be very expensive, especially if you didn't mind it being a little noisy and leave mufflers off. Just straight pipes and a couple of bends. I would look for a good machine shop around you just for grins at least and bring the exhuast in to see if they can do it and get an estimate.


      Good call. I might take it in with me when I go to see if I need to be re-bored or if I can just do sleeves. It's a solid, uncomplicated design of pipe, so I can't imagine them telling me no.
