Feel Good Moments
Feel Good Moments. I'll take 'em where I can get 'em 'cause often times life is jank.
#1 Waking up is always nice. Dieing in my sleep seems like a nice option for when I'm 90, but at 38 waking up is expected and welcomed.
#2 Waking up B-Man. Dude never wants to get up, and I can't blame him. BUT that minute that I just sit beside him watching him sleep before I start the "good time daddy" wake up crap is priceless. I'll miss that when he's older.
#3 Seeing B-Man get embarrassed when girls in his class say hi to him when I drop him off. Priceless and funny as hell. Even better is when the teachers assistant says hi to him. He admitted to me a couple weeks ago when he looked at her one day he thought of the "b word" (that would be boobs). Too funny.
#4 Taking a bunch of envelopes stuffed with black and white T-shirted goodness to the post office. While I have to sell a BUNCH more before I break even, seeing ANY positive number in the XXC ledger is nice. Even better is that some folks dig the design, message, etc., FYI, if you're at Interbike next week, keep an eye out. There will be 1 to 3 folks sporting the shirts from time to time.
#5 I did a layout yesterday for a kick ass story a dude submitted to the mag. He had a great story and great pics from a pro photog who was down with the XXC vibe. BUT I f*cked up. I took some easy ways out and turned out an acceptable but boring 5 page layout. Today I said "f*ck that" and redid the whole thing, and NOW I feel GOOD about what I did.
#6 Planning a nice rice for Saturday. So I took the day off the bike today, got work done, relaxed and planned out my Saturday. Tomorrow will be an hour or so on the Rail Trail just spinning out the legs and listening to some muzak.
#7 Speaking of Muzak... "Lemmy The Movie"!! That's all you had to say caucasian!!
