Well as the kids say, I pretty much failed at TdF race recaps, which I was supposed to be "good" at doing.  It looks as though I have been having a problem putting pen to paper, or should I say fingertip to key?  I, like most Americans want to blame my issue/problems on something other than myself, I mean really self-accountability is for dead people.  I am alive and well in the Nintendo-Xbox-PS2 world that we have created, so my problem is, shall we say watching too much TV?  Sounds good to me, tune in turn the brain off and tune out.  Bam! no head injury required to become a self-induced vegetable, and wearing your helmet does not work.  -Tried it, even used foil to no avail.

I really do enjoy writing, but lately and for quite sometime I have been unable to produce anything worth a darn.  Plus, you actually have to write something to have something to critique.  It's not like I haven't had any ideas, I've had plenty, but they just did not want to jump onto the page, or should I say screen?  Back to blaming outside forces that I have no control over, like TV and work.  Yes I would like to take this commercial break and blame my work for robbing me of my artistic creativity.  Once again it could not be me who is actually blocked or that I am just not taking the time to sit down and put some letters into words into sentences into paragraphs.  I can not be held accountable for my actions, I was not hugged enough as a child, it's GIJoes fault that I am violent and it is the Smurfs fault that I dig chicks with a blueish complexion.  Damn you TV.

One thing that would never be a problem for me or for my life would be the amount of time I spend on a bike.  It's not a problem, I can handle my bike riding, I don't need to do it, I just like to do it, I can stop at anytime.  Yeah, no problem/issue there folks just move along nothing to see here.  I will not admit that I have a problem, because I don't.  It is everyone who doesn't understand bikes that has a problem, they are the sick ones, they are the ones who need help and support groups.  I'm fine thanks for asking, what's your problem?

Boy, that was a lot of work.  I think I need a man soda and some quality time with the couch and the remote control.  I would go ride a bike if I was not already blown out from the last couple of days, oh but there is always tomorrow.  Sitting watching the clock waiting for it to tell me it is time to go ride.  Already planning my rides for the weekend.  Scheduling my life around a child's toy.  I don't have a problem, just some killer tan lines, shaved legs, and an affinity for Lycra.
