Holy crap. I love my Mom and everything she did for this holiday weekend. This year we didn't do what a lot of other people do. I still haven't had Tofurkey and mashed potatoes. On Thursday we drove to Pacific City, where my Mom had reserved us a room in a very nice hotel. Even Lisa got to come. It looks right out on to the ocean. Literally, there's a road, a sandy parking lot and then the water. It's nice. On the way to the hotel we hiked down a trail that over looked a beach that was inhabited by hundreds of seals. Better than Planet Earth. Today we went to this section of shore that my Mom is observing for some non-profit organization. The tide was high when we got there so we walked behind the dunes for a ways. There was a lot of tall grass under low coastal pine trees. I tried to pretend that I was in Middle Earth. We eventually got onto the beach and walked for quite a while. Lisa was pumped. She loves hiking and going to the beach. I think most people would never guess how much a tiny dog like her could be into going on adventures, but she can keep up on some of the longer hikes we do. Then we came back to the hotel, ate dinner, watched a movie. The lady that works for the hotel gave my brother and I some wine. They had some opening for some jewelry thing and had left over drinks so she decided to give us some. Rad.

Now I can't sleep. It's hot in the room, even though the door to the balcony is wide open. My mind is also racing. That never helps, and being that I am in a hotel room with my Mom, I can't exactly fall asleep to the TV or cartoons like I do at home. So I went to the lobby. I found this:

I think it's amazing.

Molly's interest in cyclocross is responsible for mine. Not that it's a bad thing. But I think about that a lot. I want to race next fall. I don't know if the desire is so strong because I want to be done with school or I really just want to race. I also have developed an interest in countries like Belgium and France because of it. The interest in France also has a lot to do with school; art and World War II class I am taking. In any case I want to go to those places at some point. Nuff said.

One week until I give my proposal. I will be talking about social practice. Never done it before. It'll be rad, I've got my shit together.

I also have figured out how to make art about bikes without it being kitsch. I'm really excited about it. I will post pictures and an explanation when its done.

I would really appreciate it if someone would buy my mountain bike. I needs the money. 2k is all I'm asking,its a sweet deal.

Beards Before

We have found ourselves together this night, bonded as brothers through the journey of wisdom and beards. We mark the occasion with the sacrifice of that which has taken us so much to endure.
