Cat Piss, Three Steps and 6.95 miles…

So yesterday was a busy day for me at work.  Most of the houses I had to go into were not total dumps but I did manage to come across a crazy cat lady.  The house smelled as if cats were spraying the area non-stop (as Im sure they were).  There was cat hair everywhere when I was trying to relight this weirdo’s water heater.  Shortly after leaving that shit hole I got a text from Beckie saying Elsa took three big, real deal steps!  I knew it was coming soon and that made my day…  After finishing work around 5, I took a big iced coffee with soy to Beckie and then even managed to get a nice little ride in.  I took my bike to Annapolis because its been a while sense I rode downtown.  I only got in 6.95 miles but they were fun…

I now have a bunch of paintings to finish…  (pics to come soon)

Treats!

Beckie and I have been wanting to make Elsa’s room a little more fun for her.  I figured I’d make her some paintings for the walls of stuff she likes.  Seeing as how she cant get enough SpongeBob I decided I would paint her some big SpongeBob, Plankton and Patrick paintings.  I made them while she napped and then let her see them…

The SpongeBob one is 22×26 inches and the Plankton and Patrick are 14×18 inches.  All of them are mixed media on glass.

I also wanted to make her some Yo Gabba Gabba paintings.  I had the idea to put them in these really ornate frames Beckie and I got.  When I saw the Green one I automatically thought of Brobee.  Originally I just planned on using simple frames but I really think these turned out great mostly due to the frames.  I had to paint the Muno, Plex and, Toodee ones to match tho.  Brobee and Foofa were already the right color.

I had fun doing these and Elsa really really liked them.  It was awesome how she reacted when I first showed her.  She points to them everytime I bring her into her room now.  I ended up doing another little SpongeBob today when she was napping.

I had this other frame sitting around and when I was done the other Yo gabba paintings I thought a Gooble one would be awesome so I painted a bigger Gooble.  Its about 15×21 inches. Elsa liked that one too…

I have a bunch more to do as well.  I cant stop making them for her!!!

Rideage… 4/21/11

I went for a long one today.  I missed riding yesterday so I figured Id double up today.  I went 22.something miles.  My odometer zeroed itself (actually I did it on accident).  Anyhow,  I took RT 2 into Brooklyn/Baltimore.  I gotta say that road kinda sucks on a fixed gear.  A lot of bumps/shitty road surfaces and a lot of uphill.  It was fun tho, I felt good about the ride.  I stopped by a buddys house that I haven’t seen in a long while only to realize I was at the wrong house…

I also stopped by a shop another buddy of mine works at only to find they are closed on Wednesday and Thursday…

I still had a good ride anyhow…

I saw this retarded ass thing.  Thought it was kinda funny…

I

Rode on the B&A a little bit as usual.  Its on my way home so I figure I should ride it.  Its smooth as hell for the most part…

Hopefully the weather is nice tomorrow too,  Id like to get another nice long ride in…

Ride 2… 4/18/11

I was able to get a good ride in tonight.  13 miles exactly.  It was pretty much all city riding.  I can say 37mph at a 46/15 gear ratio caused my chicken legs to look like a cartoon when they start to run or like  the goddamn tasmanian devil.  Im sure the car behind me got a kick out of it.   I also found that I really need to work in/get used to that Regal saddle.  Actually I should just get some bike shorts, tight ones to show off the goods (and that have some padding in the ol’ BH area)!   Anyhow, till tomorrow…

From start to finish…

Those chicken legs can some how get a bike moving…

Im thinking I might try risers out and see how I like them…
