Three new fillings, one long bike ride, and corn bread

Three new fillings, one long bike ride, and corn bread

So I went out to my dentist's office to pay for several years of dental neglect. No major hitches in getting three holes in my head plugged (pay no attention to those saying "do three more!"), but getting there was definitely about half the fun.

More pictures, and some notes about Valentine's day.

Warning! The large versions of these pics are a half-meg apiece. click if you dare.

The Lovely One gave me liquor for Valentine's:

I romantically paid for her hair styling, and we went to an antique show Saturday morning, where I got her an amethyst glass toothpick holder:


I've got pictures for you.

I'm playing with the departmental 5 megapixel Sony Cyber-shot (a cyber camera for the cybermorphic weblog, natch). I took a few pictures, mostly for information. large versions are mostly 800x600, but there's one really big one in there just for fun.

Mmm. Apples. Props to The Lovely One for picking out some really kickin' Fuji apples this week. I'm really cheap, so I usually buy T&T's cheapo Red Delicious. They're nice, but it gets monotonous.

Should be an interesting weekend. Antiquing at the Tradex show instead of bike riding on Saturday (um...), then dinner at Takumi, a nice local Japanese restaurant.


Four bikes isn't too many, right? Okay, how about five?

I have a schtick I use right now when my wife half-jokingly complains that I have four bicycles (true) and even more frames (true). I then describe them as my "race bike, my commuting bike (because you don't want to get the race bike messy), my mountain bike, and the fourth bike is just for fun." The fourth bike is a crude fixed-gear conversion.


Your pants maker is lying to you.

So, we all know that clothing sizes, granting that there never has been anything really standardized, have been gradually inflating, so that todays size 6 is more like yesterday's size 10.

Fine. But that's women's clothes, and to an extent, men's tops. But aren't pants supposed to be sold by waist measurement in inches?


The Lovely One and I spent the morning and a fair part of the afternoon at a local day spa, thanks to a fortuitous contest win by yours truly.


This is your VP Marketing here. Although the Wired Cola brand has suffered a few setbacks lately, we think we have a winner this time. Of course, we also thought that about the Wired Cola can that could transform into a shuriken, and we all know how long it took to get the CPSC off our backs over that one.

In other news, I got my mountain bike back up and running. That should be good for a few nice fall stories soon.

Message from the VP, non-production

I have to say, this blog comes awfully close to producing something, which would be against my portfolio as vice president of non-production.


Welcome to the world's first and only Cybermorphic weblog. Always the middlest to jump on a trend, we here at Wired Cola would like to welcome you to what will soon be the greatest blog in the history of carbonated beverages.
