Saturday Night

Saw Bastard Saint play at Rollin's 40th birthday party and sculpture exhibit - yes he got the grant he was trying for. Rode over to Split Lip Rayfield at Lee's - hoot and a half. Lead a small posse through Loring Park - Kevin scores 2, count them - 2, flat tires at once - one of them fixed, the other new tube doesn't hold air. That flat diminished plans to ride down closed-for-the-weekend I-35W, although others successfully rode it. Walking home, saw a guy on a Ninja motorcycle go down HARD on Lyndale doing about 40 mph (64 kph) - he's OK, got a good video of him telling me how the bike "just came out from under him." I offered him a beer from my bag but he declined. Took a few photos of the cab driver at Pizza Luce trying to double-charge a trio for cab fare. He didn't stay long after the camera begun flashing. My left knee and arm are in total pain after an endo crash in a ditch along Lyndale - my right arm is bloody from an earlier fall. Lots of energy, have to dissipate it somehow...

"Middle-Aged" eventually becomes more than a State-Of-Mind:

6/Squared, it's not just for breakfast anymore.

Sorry to slow you down, Mark. I'm sure they will close 35 again this summer. We'll just have to rip it up then.
