chuck it

stupid cross.

drove 140 miles to pre-ride a gawdamn cross race course. i really, REALLY need to get another hobby. I'm thinking model aeroplanes. Or maybe photographing endangered woodpeckers.

The race is Aptos - deep in the heart of nowhere's-ville 'duuude' country. The course is just going to be punishment tomorrow. I'm too old for this shit. I mean, maybe I could start golf? Frisbee golf? Miniature golf?

"nowhere's-ville" ??

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

a bow both deep and smiling,
"apologies, my queen."

Velo Bella said...

your blog starts where I met you, that is, if we don't count the dancing one you slipped in.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

rather interesting, that -

don't you think?


X Bunny said...

now i'm getting confused again

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

i changed the settings on the blog. the comments are auto-saved with date stamps. so, i just switched the setting to date only (euro-style, of course ... cause i'm queero-trash) and took out the clock time-stamp.

i'm so funny.


Velo Bella said...

the meeting was only a meeting we remember in hindsight

makes it all the more special that way for many reasons...

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

i remember every second you have been within arm length of me.

The first words we spoke to each other were over an engine's rumble, a gaggle's din of conversation, and joyful sighs of fatigue after a fun day's work.

even that brief, surreal glance of a meeting ... some bizarre, unknowable bolt of ... something ran ragged through me - touching every fiber and swimming free through every single cell of my being.

at the time, there was only one response ... dumb joy and a huge hand up to the gods, 'take notice, please ... i've found something i want ... name your price.'


X Bunny said...

i get the time stamps, silly (how dense do you think i am?)

it was the meeting date that confused me so thanks for splainin'

Velo Bella said...

The thought is so lovely, that I will allow the poetic license and add...

when you said hello to me, way out by the water, in the middle of your race, my heart skipped a few beats.

and it has been skipping ever since

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

i just read the xls spreadsheet note ... i'm so done.

you know the words I'm saying right now.

just three words.

over and over again.


Velo Bella said...

You're a geek? You're a geek? You're a geek?

Your geek.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

damn right.

Velo Bella said...

I think you said Oct 14th...but did you mean the 15th?

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

ok, so we've got the two set in stone.

Oct 15th

Velo Bella said...
