Hey all-

So I quick ran to the site’s dashboard, so that I could post some lyrics to a counting crows song… Then I realised that Counting Crows lyrics really don’t say anything at all. I could surely put them down, but I think anyone reading this site semi-regularly would get pretty bored by it. So I’ll just write another ‘novel’ for you all…

Tonight I met an ex-pro bike racer! My life is complete! And man, that guy really loved to talk, lemme tell ya! I guess I’ll say to each their own… And plus, he said some good info, definitely. I’ll think more about my form while riding due to his suggestions. Anyway, I was at drexel, and then came back home after it… and yeah, not too exciting. But hey, I think it’s a different day for another reason! About 5 min ago was the first true time that I started thinking that Floyd Landis actually isn’t guilty of doping. It’s a tough call. He also was my very favorite cyclist, even well before his 2006 tour win. For a little while, and even now, you can just cop me out for being a little less loyal than you would expect, at least just in his case. Shrug… But knowledge saves us all! Check out his site at for real info on what he’s going thru. It’s a blog just like this one, but he’s actually WORSE than Saul Raisin at keeping it up. But I guess he’s got more to do in his life than us nerds do!

So this coming wednesday will be quite a packed therapy day.. YAY! Just kidding. I’ll have my last hand therapy, meet with a number of people for the aid that I’m receiving to cover my future situation, have all my regular therapies, and even have a team meeting! How many of these am I looking forward to? Zero!

“I can’t keep myself away from me.” – Adam Duritz (Counting Crows!) so there you go! I actually found a “lyric” that even relates to my situation. I can’t keep myself away from myself. Other than the fact that I really can’t escape my own body (as expected..and no, i don’t want to), the reason I like what it says is because even tonight, a normal night, and one that was in the city, away from all that reminds me of my injury, I still managed to bring up my situation. I can’t keep myself away from it… And hell, I really should. No, I’m not asking for your opinion in the matter, but I’ll tell you… It is quite a ‘sign’ that I still haven’t gotten over the fact that I’ve had this whole thing happen to me. Eventually I will, but when that is, I don’t even know. So hey- if I am talking to you and I bring it up, you shall understand where I stand. I don’t actually care who knows about what I’ve been thru. It sure as hell doesn’t make me have any more ‘points’ than the rest of the people out in the world. All my life, I’ve expected that anything I say might be interesting, but knowing or even thinking that my situation is definitely out-of-the-ordinary is odd. After I tell someone about what I’ve been thru, I get the feeling that I’m being an attention-hog. For the record, I want you all to know that the only time I am trying to be an attention hog is on this site! Haha. Hey, if you have read this far, I know I could write anything and you’d actually read it. : )

Okay- see you all! I’ve written enough. Have a good one.

    Hey Doug!
    Like your site. . . You gotta love the song Anna Begins. “Everytime she sneezes I believe its love”. Well, that’s enough to make a girl pee her pants.
    Drop me an email sometime.
