Yep! I opted to call off of work for today, stay up late, drink beer, and watch baseball last night instead of going to bed early, dragging my ass out of bed at 5 a.m., and spending the day at work.

I learned that a 40% chance of rain doesn't really mean anything.

Oh, I also learned that some people can be opinionated holes.

Myself included.

ha!
what have I learned...

1. am not suited for working in packing/shipping where I've been covering for someone
on vacation all week..it drives me INSANE

2. I can go 4 days without drinking (alcohol)

3. that there is a part from JP Cycles intended for extended narrow glide forks to tip the headlight fwd for easier aiming, that also serves as a way to tip speedo slightly forward when using pullback risers if mounted to handlebar clamp

4. that the saying "when life throws you limes, make Mojitos" might be a good motto
