The world is in bloom! Spring is here! The birds chirp and the bees buzz and everything is alive! It's so lovely!
...or it would be if I wasn't a scratching, sniveling, miserable, unable to breathe lump of excessive nap-taking thanks to allergies.
My motorcycle mileage for the weekend is a hair over 75 miles, which would be pathetic except when you consider how much medication I had to pump myself full of to get to that point. Needless to say, there was no working
I wound up wimping out after about 75 miles yesterday. I never got sufficiently warmed up. I stopped for sushi with some friends before going home, and when I left after the sun had gone down, I regretted not stopping at home for the car first. It was cold and the bike was pissed at me.
