I took the M6 to a car wash yesterday. Although I paid for the “best” wash it didn’t do the greatest job, and had no hope of removing whatever gunk I drove through sometime ago which has stuck to the vehicle since. Other than that it wasn’t the most productive of days. I had a decent dinner with two of my cousins last night at a place in Safety Harbor, Florida. I am always a little amused when I see how much Sweetwater schwag places outside of Atlanta get. After dinner I had one beer at Crooked Thumb Brewing and had to leave before being bounced by security.

Today is the first day in ages that I will be on the road again, on a bicycle. My departure will be a little later than desired since even though I had a week to get my bike ready, I failed to do so. I am also delayed because as I type this, 5:40am EST, it is only 46°F in this part of Florida and I certainly didn’t pack cold weather cycling gear.

I will say one thing that really displeases me about T-Mobile, in addition to not being able to use my home internet to stream music nor update iOS apps, is that I have called twice for support and each time was warned that there would be an estimated thirty minute wait to talk to a representative; this is completely unacceptable. I finally talked to a support representative, but unfortunately I stumped him…

Wordle: two, my starter was MOUTH
Connections: perfect, Green > Yellow > Blue > Purple

    Good job on Wordle. I got it in three starting with MILES. One mistake in Connections: Green, Yellow, Purple, Blue.

    Hope the weather warms up for you. I need to get on the bike soon too. April is just around the corner. GUTS run tonight. So far Chance is pretty easy to dogsit.

    We have snow flurries in the forecast for this morning! Sky here is dark enough. Would be pretty if we do.

    Wordle in 4 and coulda been 2!

    I spent 45 minutes in the hot tub after my 25 miles yesterday. While I’ve been consistent on the trainer, those miles don’t always convert to the road. I did feel more power at times, but still there’s an endurance issue that only being on the road will fix.

    Otherwise a pretty quiet day. A good dinner made by my charming bride.

    Busy AF at work with lots of things colliding and wanting my time.

    It was 36 degrees when I checked the weather this morning prior to getting dressed. But it’s supposed to get up to 60 today.

    Traffic was light this morning but the people who *were* on the road were driving like assholes.

    we watched Oppenheimer on Peacock last night – 3 hours is a long movie. But -we did have a nice intermission to make some dinner. Its very science-y – so not my kind of movie, but that being said – it was very good. I see why it & everyone is getting all the awards.

    We are considering going to see the Bob Marley movie tonight since its cheap movie night, but I’m not sure I want to. We will see.

    Allan decided to bag up all the aluminum cans for Sal – some hashers are pigs – they don’t drain the cans before putting in the bin. What a mess.

    You are worried about a 30 minute wait? You going to miss a meeting or something? LOL 🙂
    Suck you are still having problems. There has to be some firewall configuration in your way from accessing Apple features. Hopefully they can get it figured out.

    Wordle in 3 starting with Mulch, second guess got me another letter and was able to nail the third guess.
    Connections was a stretch. I made no mistakes but stared at the words for way too long trying to make them make sense.

    Headed up to Hiawassee with Jackass this weekend to hang out with Brint and ride motorcycles. Brint won’t be riding but we will make sure he is all good and has everything he needs.

    Starting to get excited for new bike day, hoping it comes in by Friday 🙂

      “You are worried about a 30 minute wait? You going to miss a meeting or something? LOL ????” It’s another case of a person getting what they’re paying for. Cheap internet = watered down support. ¯\_(?)_/¯

      • Customer service sucks across the board, unless you have some celebrity status or are a billionaire. I don’t think this is cheap, I think it’s priced fairly, and the other services (I’m looking at you AT&T) are overpriced. And, I doubt that I’d get an AT&T rep much quicker.

    Wordle in 3, coulda been in 2 but for one letter. Starting word was HARDY. Clean Connections.

    My hair stylist got her power tools out and redeemed my wild head of hair this morning.

    Last night was a semi-monthly Fellini’s night. Never gets old.

  9. Back from my ride. Details tomorrow…

  10. Barb says:

    we still have sour cream in the fridge from the Wheelhopper last month that needs to get used (or thrown out) so I told Allan – find a recipe with sour cream in it for dinner.
    I’m not sure what we are having, but he found something with chicken.

    David- I’ll let you know about the movie – it won’t be for 2 weeks now, as Allan works next Tuesday.

  11. Guilt free basket of fish and chips, washed down with a beer, consumed. Woot!
