The small joys today thread (a bit of Yang for FoA Yin of late)

For someone who rejects ‘The Rules’, you certainly do abide by them.

I really wanted some socks with the Italian flag on them somewhere, and those were the best I found. (There’s a small flag on the back.)

mate I never said it was bad! love 1998 homage

I probably needed more :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Looks like a good day out. Can’t see myself ever going back to downtube shifters though, at least while the Ken is the only bike I have.

2 years on as my daily bag and still going strong…yayer

I dread running into people i know on my commute.
Stilted conversations at traffic lights, not knowing if im going too fast or slow. Having to pause my podcast and remove my headphones.
A nod or wave is enough.

Solid weekend spent up in Sydney.

  • Drove up and had a good breafkast at Some Cafe (thats the name of it) in Collector.
  • Met Dave Try (handsome man) at Wayward Brewery for a tasting paddle, free popcorn and life talking
  • Went to a pub, ate a solid vegetarian burger
  • Said my goodbyes to Dave before he heads over to Columbia for altitude training
  • Drove over to Homebush stadium and checked into one of the worst hotels I have stayed in. The room smelled like some artificial masking agent that was there to cover up the smell of smoking or a murder, went to open the window, the window slider mechanism was broken.
  • The bible that is always in hotels came in handy to keep the window open
  • Saw Fleetwood Mac Live
  • Had breakfast in some hipster place in Marrickville
  • Met up with Lemontimes
  • Went to the markets with Lemontimes
  • Laughed at people complimenting his speed dealer sunnies
  • Finished a roll of film
  • Got a tasting paddle from Batch Brewery
  • Said goodbye to Lemontimes after our business meeting #synergy
  • Had lunch at a great cafe, sat at the bar looking into the kitchen (my fav seats)
  • Took some pics on a camera I haven’t used in a long time, I need to carry it everywhere with me. I love the X100T
  • Went to Sauce Brewing Co and ran into an instagram friend
  • Drove home to Canberra listening to Fleetwood Mac and Crowded House whilst looking into their history as musicians.

Heading east on Murray Rd on Saturday with the family in the car and saw benxlehner, camera slung over his shoulder, leading a couple of blokes in the opposite direction.

Was nice to see someone able to get out and ride, unlike me.

SJ1: Rode in the snow twice on the weekend. Solid adventure vibes.
SJ2: On the way home yesterday I drove past Gypsy and a couple of other friends bombing down a hill in short sleeves, enjoying the first semblance of spring and sunshine.

SJ3: Booked flights to NZ in Sept/Oct
SJ4: Used frequent flyer points to get a special deal. I’m flying business class cheaper than I would have if going economy.

Or not, I dunno.

This is great! (so far), halfway through!

EDIT: I also saw Gary Clark Jr earlier this year, holy moly what a guitarist!

Yeah, thanks for the invite, sorry I was so busy.

You were busy when I visited your actual building for work.

Sorry mate - I do need to head back soon though. Those breweries… there are just so many of them!

I’ll be busy next time too if you keep that attitude.
