chad and stephanie

But they aren't us... he is really outdoorsy and she has REALLY cool hair (because it's like mine hee hee hee) but that's where the similarities end. But wouldn't an Amazing Race adventure be, well, amazing?

the best weather forecast EVAH!

Mr. BikeMan makes fun of me because I am a weather junkie. One year for Christmas he bought me two books on weather forecasting. I love them! But all the while he says, why don't you just look out the window and see what the weather is doing? I get a certain thrill when that red crawl appears on the bottom of the TV screen and that creepy repeating buzz sound blares... It's Weather Time! He rolls his eyes.

There must be other people like him, because I found out about this website this morning:

masterpiece mystery alert: sherlock in october

PBS' Masterpiece Mystery will be showing two Sherlock episodes on October 24 and October 31. Sherlock is a modern retelling of Sherlock Holmes, and is co-created by the 5th season Doctor Who (Bow Tie Doctor #11) team of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.

Apparently three stories were produced, but only two are being show on PBS this fall.

on hold

FYI: It's 12:05 in the afternoon, and I've now been on hold waiting to speak with a Verizon FIOS billing supervisor 42 minutes and 03 seconds. I simply asked for a supervisor. I'm stubborn enough to keep holding, but my better sense says that I'm probably in permahold.

it's a go for surgery, doctor

So this morning I wasn't feeling great. Probably didn't help that I got up this morning after having had no dinner last night, and promptly ate a piece of chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for breakfast. Blah...way way way too much sugar on an empty stomach. It sent me reeling for quite a while. The girls were quite concerned, so Ilsa got their toy medical kit out and decided to make me feel better. I had the blanket over my head, so she worked on my feet. Shots, blood pressure, plastic bandage, the works. Mr. BikeMan snapped this picture after her prescribed course of treatment was complete.

I may be behind the times, and you may already know about this one, but I've found a great new blog to follow: Catalog Living - the lives of the people who live in our catalogs.

tireswing bliss

So, we got this fancy tire swing set up finally.... I have a feeling we'll have a hard time getting the girls OFF of the fancy tire swing. Mr. BikeMan started researching tire swings on the web. He found a guy up in Massachusetts who makes these seriously great swings. You can choose small or large tires, the chain color, ball-bearing 360* rotators, etc... It was shipped via FedEx and arrived 3 days after we placed the order. I love promoting small businesses... here's a link to his site, "My Tire Swings".
