Today started out a little funny. You see, I have my bike all boxed up but I don't know how much it weighs. I walked around awhile yesterday trying to find a scale. MCQ and I did discover one down in the Cuba street mall. You put your 10 cents in and it tells you your weight. Soo...MCQ being the nice guy he is helped me truck my bike box all the way down the street to weigh it. 33kgs the box weighed, only 1kg over. I spent some more change to figure out what to pull out of the box. We got back awhile later, packing the bike via arms and eventually on our heads.

We left awhile later to go climbing down at the climbing wall. That was a lot of fun, though my arms sure aren't used to it. On the walk back I picked up some presents for people. MCQ got great video of me lip synching outside of a karoke bar to some girl Phil Collins' "One More Night".

Watched Raging Bull tonight, it was good. Can't belive that a week from now I'll be drinking beer with everyone at Bollino's 30th birthday party.

Whoah, weird. Today when MCQ and I were walking I thought of how in Australia I was riding and the Spice Girls' "Wannabe" came on the radio and I thought of how my friend Pete back home would always dance and sing around to that song. I couldn't remember exactly where it happened though. I was fixing something in the database for this entry and discovered that it was exactly a year ago that the "spice girls event" had happened. (july 10th, 2002). Weird. The other day I started singing the "Greatest American Hero" theme song when MCQ and I were walking down the stairs. 30 minutes later we were talking ot a friend of Becki's and her mobile phone went off....with the Greatest American Hero theme song as the ringtone. sheesh.
