Tasted Like Chicken. Bad Chicken.
How do you know when it looks like you've made the right decision to leave your job and pursue a new line of work? Answers: 1. I've done about 10 minutes of work in the past 16 hours of work time. 10 MINUTES!! 2. Then I hear that yet another newspaper has bitten the Big Richard. PULL UP! PULL UP!! IT'S GOIN' DOWN!! Oh, well, in 2 days it will be none of my concern.
What WILL be my concern is kick starting my build phase of training, and going to town working on XXC. I have the cover and a few pages already done and should have the first issue good to go by the first week in April. So far the book is really taking on a warm south, south western, California feel, which I must say has been both fun and frustrating to work on sitting at my computer in the suck weather arm pit that is Western PA.
Book 1 will feature images and words from races like the Mas o Mentos 100K, Vision Quest, Counting Coup , the 12 Hours of Santos, some cool training articles, as well as some chillaxing out of the saddle bits on music, food, and one of my favorite topics- BEER! And a bunch more. I'm really excited for the way the fist issues is shapping up. It's looking strong and there won't be one burst or any disclaimers about the inclusion of "rebates, college grad, military savings, and $3,000 cash or trade". At least I hope not!!
Trust me, things get more clear every day. Give me a month and I hope to put out something, that folks will at least look at and say "that looks pretty OK." ;)
For the second time this week I made some chicken stir fry and my chicken just wasn't working for me. Little tough. Very frustrating, since I could make some of these dishes blind folded! Could it be bad chicken? Does it need choked? Oh well, time to go to bed and pray I don't get some sort of chicken ass rain syndrome.
