The Rise and Fall of the Rude Owls

This is for me to talk about what i want to talk about!

  1. Snow Bike is Snow Bike

    by , 22 Dec 2011 at 04:37 PM (The Rise and Fall of the Rude Owls)
    A few years ago i got some big old snow tires for my bike. They're extra fat and they're studded, so they do a pretty good job. Usually i can trudge through the worst storms with aplomb. I've lost traction a few times but as of yet, on a snowy or icy surface, i have not fallen over with these tires, and only once have i had to get off my bike because i couldn't grip the ground. Sure, i've wrecked on a dry sandy road, slipped on grass, even gotten a sprained knee from slipping in a puddle on a warm ...

    I was late to work again.

    Usual time, nothing to get worked up about.

    Guydeliveringenvelopes showed up: Tried to talk to me, but i'm not especially good at shooting the shit.

  3. Fixies SUCK!

    by , 19 Aug 2010 at 09:01 PM (The Rise and Fall of the Rude Owls)
    Why do people hate fixies so much but give single speed bikes a free pass? Why are hipsters associated with fixies, when there are enough purple bikes with neon-green Deep-V with gold freewheel hubs to completely disassociate hipsters with fixed gears? Mostly it's people being ignorant. It's fun to be a dumbass when everyone else is doing it, but sometimes... sometimes... don't you wish you had something you could care about without everyone making fun of it? If you don't want to be a stupid asshole, ...

  4. CARS VS. CYCLISTS! FIGHT!

    by , 25 Jun 2010 at 12:16 PM (The Rise and Fall of the Rude Owls)
    This morning i drove by myself for the first time in over a year. Now i feel all aggressive and mad! I remember why i used to scream all the time and drive recklessly: when i want to get angry, there's not a satisfying outlet. A few twitches and i could ruin someone's life pretty bad, but on my bike, i really have to put effort into getting angry. A quick sprint will get it all out.
    Now while you're fuming over what this stupid ass cyclist thinks he knows about driving, what do you hate about ...

  5. Work laziness

    by , 21 Jun 2010 at 09:54 PM (The Rise and Fall of the Rude Owls)
    Being that i'm the only employee where i work, sometimes i'm the only person actually at work. On most days, i go about what i'm supposed to do, interspersed with Facebook time and email time, and sometimes playing vidya games time.
    There are also some days where work isn't particularly busy or i can't fill orders because of missing supplies, so i don't work as much and spend more time on doing things that aren't valuable at all. On these days, i reflect it by writing down "2 hour break" ...

  6. Chipotle is so good!

    by , 18 Jun 2010 at 05:07 PM (The Rise and Fall of the Rude Owls)
    I love Chipotle burritos, even though they're about 1/2 of your daily supply of calories. With guacamole, they are heavenly. I wish the guac wasn't an extra $1.80 though.
