Semi related. It’s Tim Tam day at WeWork.
Nothing like tim tams to distract the workers from impending corporate implosion…
SJ: Velobase is back…phew…
SJ: picked up a pair of bonds casual shorts at $15 a pop from their outlet store
BC: really liking that fleecy type of shorts these days, pretty much in shorts all year round.
TC: I have a pair of polar fleece shorts. (From NZ bush work days)
TC I nearly bought a pair of puffy shorts in a japanese thrift shop.
for that summer tassie tuxedo.
Finally got around to using my diy headset press made from threaded rod/washers from Bunnings.
SJ: Worked a treat and definitely felt more #pro than a rubber mallet.
people have been banned for less.
On the topic of shorts, when I was in Japan I saw what looked like essentially a stubby short but lots of different colours. Im thinking holy shit look how lit this is. Run over to them. Ticket says: “Women’s half pant”.
well i know what i’m changing your contact name in my phone to…
SJ: Putting together a $0 budget SS 26" pub/lock up bike to get to the shops and local errands, and to leave in the garage of our apartment block.
So far have sourced a nakamura tange crmo 1 1/8" frame and a segmented 26" fork for free from various gumtree/fb marketplaces.
Last night picked up some free wheels on the chance they were decent and true - rolled around to find a near-new mavic sup rims laced to shimano hubs in snazzy sunset ano finish. Can’t wait to build this up.
SJ: My last day of work here after 7 years.
NSJ: Doubt I’ll be able to browse FOA at the new gig. So see you all!
SJ: Spent my Monday after work making chicken stock and hand pulled egg noodles. Finished making a huge batch of chicken noodle soup around 10pm. Now I got chicken soup for the next week (if I dont freeze it first).
Hmm, maybe that last part should be a boring confession…
You work for FoA? Wow.
yep. where do i collect my cheque?
Went on a bushwalk with the family yesterday (public holiday in Bendigo for Bendigo Cup) around Mount Alexander. The girls spotted an echidna off the side of the trail, which we watched for 4-5 minutes from a few metres away while it burrowed around for ants. Then it waddled over towards my 7 year old who stood frozen. It sniffed her ankle, thought for a bit, then sniffed her other ankle, thought a bit more, then waddled between her legs and off up the hill. It was bloody fantastic! Echidnas are the best.
SJ: Took advantage of a new network of trails around the Arboretum here in Canberra - nice, easy grade single track through various types of trees… even a few Boab trees in there. Happy days.
The already rad commute just got better.
On the other hand, I passed a bloke on a penny farthing yesterday. That was a commute highlight after getting a flat earlier on.
You always have to one up me
I would rather have sweet single trail on my commute than have the off chance of seeing a p-far. I think you win this one Adam.
